I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
Thank you for your attention to the rating requirement.


the only common thing that causes this on this model is an issue with the intermediate levers or an issue with an eccentric shaft sensor so one of these would be my suspicions
