This answer was rated:

the exhaust brake on mt fendt 724 keeps sticking, are there any tips on maintenance?
JA: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?
Customer: fendt 724 , serial number not readily available
JA: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: yes, farm workshop repair. taking off covers to manually free. this works for a while but not long term
JA: Anything else you want the Equipment Mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: not really, but thanks
is it air controlled exhaust brake or manual
if air controlled you may have to overhaul the actuator piston. if its mechanical you will have to remove thw flap and clean all the pivot points free of carbon or soot.

it is air but the lever is jammed so dismantling is the only option

Probably a technician visit will be in order
unfortunately yes the i ky way to properly check and rectify would be to dismantle it. check for cracks or fractures on the unit as these can hold carbon and cause the jamming
