Hey everyone,

This looks like the best thread for problems/solutions. I've read/searched through and didn't find a solution. My Death Star isn't closing properly (upon testing or in game). I trimmed the notches on the back side, and it will close manually now, it would catch before. However, when it's fired (and opened) it doesn't spring back closed. It'll stick about 1" open. Looks like the left side goes where it should, but the right side doesn't rotate all the way back. Is there an adjustment somewhere? Not sure if the rod holding that half can be adjusted, or if i need to bend the spring to have more force.

Hopefully someone else has encountered the issue and has a solution.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks, i'll see about taking it apart and checking everything. Looks like there are some set screws on that shaft, so i'll check those first. I printed out the 2 pages from the PDF just so it's easier, even though i have the manual.

Disconnected the linkage and everything worked great. So I put it back together and to get it loose I had to move the assembly back on the shafts a bit and then everything moves freely and the Death Star closes ok.
