  1. miller8, Thank you for the question. The up and down movement of the chute is controled by the joystick and two cables attached to the chute. Be sure to press the release button firmly. When you move the joystick the cables should move. As you move the joystick back and forth see if the cable is moving. I suspect the cable needs to be tightened. At the chute will be a round pulley with the cable routed around it. See if there is to much slack.

      Thank you for your email. You are right, the cable is loose, how can I adjust it so it can be back to work again?
      Thank you.
