    a sticking vent is a new problem I've never heard about. Are you sure the channels haven't gotten bent some how? Otherwise perhaps ash has clogged the lower channel and that could be brushed or blown away. HTH

    Spray a de-greaser in the channels at the top and bottom. Let soak for a while then use a smell tipped slotted screwdriver to clean out the channel. Also, make sure the channel is not bent.
