shute deflector problems

I own a 8526 Ariens,the shute deflector won't stay put,I move the joystick so the snow doesn't shoot up in the air,and the deflector moves up on its own.I was wondering if the cable needs adjusting? Or is the spring on the side of the shute the problem.anybody else had the same problem before?

I thought most of those had several notches in the dash similar to the gear shifters.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

Then the handle probably has a bolt under the panel you can tighten a bit to keep it set where you want.

Garage
yup, that's the adjustment.

DEFLECTOR REMOTE
Deflector must stay in selected position while throwing snow.
If deflector does not stay in set position:
1. Tighten nut beneath the control panel to increase friction on pressure flange
(Figure 12).
If deflector does not follow full range of travel:
1. Push deflector remote all the way forward.
2. Loosen adjusting nuts on cable support bracket.
3. To adjust the deflector lower: Slide cable down. Tighten bottom nut.
4. To adjust deflector higher: Slide cable up. Tighten top nut.
5. Check travel and repeat adjustment as necessary.


.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!
