Recess roller blind fitted to patio doors. Over last few months, tension has gone and no longer staying down. Anyone had this experience or know how to solve it?

Hi lmin87
I assume you are referring to the type of blind that you pull down and it locks in position, then a quick pull releases it.. if so you could try lightly spraying the mechanism with something like wd40. Failing this probably a new blind will be required.
