MVP left side only pulls back won't push forward

    I have an UltraMount MVP (not the plus model) and the left wing is only working consistently in pull back mode. I can't get it to go forward without working it like a straight blade.

    Anyone have any troubleshooting recommendations?

    It works intermittently, but when it's not working it seems like it's not switching from backward to forward when I hit the button the second time. Each time I hit the button it moves back until it hits the stops.

    Reading the Western mechanics guide it looks like the S4 SV08-30 Solenoid Cartridge is part of the movement control and is the only function in the list that isn't working. I haven't taken anything apart yet.
