Deluxe adjustable problems

I seem to be having some issues with my super adjustable - two things really - the first is that when closing it the blade does not flex and meed the curved top of the head. Unlike my slim adjustable which has a very smooth "finish" when closing, the deluxe just sort of stops abruptly. And second, I am no longer getting any adjustment between 1 and 9 - it remains fixed at the same opening. I've rinsed it thoroughly and tinkered some but to no avail...

Any suggestions about what might be wrong or how to fix it? Thanks!

I would soak it in warm soapy water over night.

What type adjustable are you working with? A picture may help define the model...
D'oh - my bad it is a "super" adjustable (not deluxe) - black handle Gillette.

Unlike my slim that last quarter turn doesn't happen to lock the blade into position - which may also effect the adjustment...
Soak in overnight in hot soapy water. Rinse. Repeat. Rinse. Repeat. Eventually it should free up. It takes A LOT of patience. If after multiple tries it doesnt help at all, then more drastic actions can be taken
Thanks for the input! I'll start the soaking tonight.

Thankfully, I have a backup slim adjustable so I won't be entering the Cheers beard growing contest... :tongue_sm
