Hi, we have a top hung upvc window that is draughty due to having small gap between the opening frame and rubber seals. Is there a way to adjust the opener so it seals properly. Thanks in advance.

I assume the handle still locates fully, in which case it is most likely to be wear in the hinges where they locate at the top. Usually a pointed shape on the fixed part that the closing part locates in. This can spread with age and prevent the top of the sash from closing fully. You might be able to make some small tweaks with a pair of pliers to make it locate more securely. Alternatively replacement hinges are available and pretty straightforward to fit.
