My heater control lever will no longer stay in the up position. The spring tension pulls it back down as soon as you let go of it. If you hold the lever in the up position, heat does flow properly. Would someone please tell me what provides the friction for it to stay in the up position?

Thanks,
Dan

Tighten the nut (A39) or the problem could be part A38 in the diagram.

I've heard that buying nylon washers from a regular hardware store works.
