Question Toro 824 OE auto hold?

I apologize if this has been addressed... I just bought a brand new Toro 824 OE after help from this forum (thanks)! After one use, and the machine sitting outside for a couple days, the right handle no longer "auto holds," so that one may operate the chute control with the right hand while still blowing snow. Using it today I kept having to stop to change the chute direction. Sucks! Not sure if its iced up... I will probably haul it inside to let it thaw and dry before bringing it back out and covering with a tarp (no garage, no shed ) but I'm curious if this is common problem or anyone else may have experienced this, and if so what was the solution??? TIA

Dealer told me over the phone there is a 3/8" (?) bolt on the left side handle that you have to back off as it may have tightened(???) I didn't see it from looking at it quick but I'm going to bring it inside and take a look in the light. I'll report back
