Forum Title: Velux skylight - seating screen to engage safety switch
Have a Velux VSE/QVE venting skylight with screen. In order for the skylight to function, the screen has to sit on top of and engage the safety switch. 10 years old. When I engage the safety switch manually, the skylight works fine. But the screen and/or frame must have gotten slightly out of alignment and I cannot get the screen to sit properly atop the safety switch, therefore can't get skylight to open/close properly. Looking for suggestions on 2 things: 1. things to try to get the screen seated properly 2. is it possible to disconnect the safety switch so I can bypass the functionality? Thanks.

Welcome to the forums! Is that a concrete sill support under it, or is that plastic. I can't tell from the picture. How is drainage provided for this window? Can you see better under the window on the inside? Is there an obvious gap? They method you suggest is viable, but I would really be concerned with drainage if it is not up to par.

Thanks - I tried a shim and my initial effort didn't work, but I'll have another go at that approach.
