Instead of replacing brand new window treatments, we repaired it ourselves. You need to purchase a string repair kit, or find the same like string. Before taking your string out, carefully examine the route of the string, or you can reference online for a diagram.
There was a lot of threading the string one by one but, all in all, it took us only 1 hour to re-string the Levolor blinds. We saved a lot of money by doing this and these blinds will last another 20+ years!
Optional: To save even more money, you can see if anyone remodeling in your area is tossing out their broken/bad window treatments and you could recycle the string.
I'm surprised the cord broke. They put some tough cord in these blinds. When I cut up the blinds to make labels for plants, I always keep the cord. It comes in handy when you need something really strong.
