Check if the slats are stuck. If yes, there is something jamming in the box, which is placed on the window. There is a roller or shaft in the box that holds together all the slats properly in place. Hence, if any of the slats are broken, then the entire assembly of slats gets affected by getting tangled together. Sometimes, the first slat, which is attached with the roller, might get worn out and needs repairing. This slat needs to be repaired or needs to be replaced once again.
