I was giving my new small Egg a workout this weekend and I am having a problem with the lid hinges...they are EXTREMELY stiff. So much so that I have not yet been able to get either one into the over-center position (which will insure that the lid doesn't come crashing down). I tried (carefully) putting some WD-40 on them as well as the back hinge but to no avail. I've not seen this on any of the Eggs I've handled. Is there something I'm missing here or will repeated use loosen them up? I'm going to call the BGE people in Atlanta this week to see if they have something on it. I don't really want to use the Egg with this problem so I don't break it or myself.
