Collapsing roof catching on Fantastic fan knob

I just picked up a 2017 212HW. super fun! We're excited to start using it.
only one glitch we noticed. when the power lift is dropping the roof, the rear roof panel as it drops, it passes under the fantastic fan and catches on the fan control knob, snagging it and pulls it for about a second or so, looks like the knob is going to be torn completely off, then finally with a 'pop' jumps over it. Has anyone else with the power roof seen this? we've tried to push in the knob more but it won't move. Thanks!

Might want to take it back to the dealer and let them look at that.

My fan knob is recessed well into the fan housing. I suspect the knob is either in need of adjustment or the wrong knob was installed. Can you tighten the screw that attaches the knob to the fan?
