Sometimes the mechanism just gets rusty. When mine got fussy I put some newspapers on the floor underneath it, hosed it down with penetrating oil, then let it sit overnight. That was the cure.

It is vacuum operated. Make sure there is vacuum to the diaphragm when it is in gear. If so, then the diaphragm is bad. If not, then there is a leak up line.

There is a manual release lever up there.

I was going to tell you to watch out for that, but thought you'd figure that out on your own. Guess you did, sorry. Won't do that again soon will you.
