That is how I have always fixed mine. Just spread the roller a bit with a flat screwdriver. I tried it last week on mine again and it seems to not be working now. Not sure what's up but will look at it later.

I see the spacer and will try that tomorrow.
I just wrapped a little duck tape on it for now.

Dan, I would advise on doing that. I pried the barrel spring and a piece dropped out. The barrel spring is high tempered and will not take bending. I had to have the total arm replaced back when I was under warranty.

I am not sure if the design has changed, but I found that the barrel spring had a rivet to the round barrel that it surrounded and that probably is where the weakest link is. I do not know of a fix other then replacing.

Not a very good design; even my new one has a mild wind, closing the door. Opening hard against the stop also shortens its life.
