window spring rattle

i dont know what brand the windows are but i know if you walk too heavy jump or drop something the you can hear the window spring rattle.

its not a spiral spring. i can see the actual spring. i dont see any adjustments on them. seems like almost all my windows do this.

they are double hung windows.

Normal for that type of window. They are old, what do you expect. Only way to put more tension on them would be to raise the screw they hang off of. And it's probably already as high as it goes.

If it's a vinyl jamb liner you should be able to find a replacement. Does the window slip down when it is open?
