Wind direction vane turned easily when first installed, but now requires appreciable force to turn (more than wind applies). The vane hangs down well clear of the body, with some shaft exposed. As suggested in other discussions, applying force vertically does pop shaft up or back down, but rotation is no easier in either position. Turning vane by hand many times loosens it slightly, but not enough to respond to wind. I tried calling 877-221-1252 for warranty replacement (purchased May 15, 2017 as part of 01106M station), but a voice message reported system outage..??
