I'm looking for an elevator crank handle for a slik master classic tripod 6857u

By elevator crank handle I presume you mean the centre column adjuster. May be available from the manufacturer or importer, otherwise try Ebay or your local friendly camera service centre.

Crank sticks on my AT-6903. What to do?

check the slide bearings that are around the shaft. if they are worn or pitted they will not allow it to slide smoothly when lowering it. A tiny-tiny bit of silicon or lithium grease may help some but do not use oil grease or wd-40

Broken elevator column crank handle

Please state the make and model. But if it is any Vivitar model then like all budget tripods spares simply aren't available.

You either make a claim under the manufacturer's one year warranty or you chuck away your tripod and buy either another budget model or invest in a quality brand which does have spares support.

The only other option is to see if a friend or relative has an engineering workshop and can fabricate spare parts for you from scratch. It's likely to be a straightforward job, but not one which is worth paying for.

3 black pieces and the spring piece fell out while cranking it way do they go back in- they obviously help smooth out the vertical raising and lowering...they re not broken.

Try for that part. There is listed the widest selection of Bogen parts and support more models than any other web site I’ve seen. There are losts of pictures to help find just the right part.
