Would it be the key slot or the Puck itself? Dosn't the key just turn a switch on the puck and drop the locking pin? I guess the little turn meck could be warn.

I believe the lock part just turns freely and the indents to hold it in each position are part of the switch. Hence my suggestion to take it apart and clean it.....as one will discover if something is broken and possibly fixable, or just packed with dirt causing it to not to hold in the various positions.

It does come apart. They are pretty easy to take apart. You will need to remove the entire switch assy. Then there are 2 small screws holding the puck on, and you slide it off to the side and you can get to the assy. on the bottom and clean it.
Mine did the same thing, and after I cleaned it I stretched the springs ever so slightly and put a dab of grease in there to keep the contacts clean.
You will need to be careful as there are small parts in there. Springs, balls, and contacts. Took me about an hour from start to finish to do mine. So far it has worked great for me.

I knew the Puck would come off, just wasn't sure the cylinder mec was serviceable.
