Good Morning, Jos:

Here is the solution to this problem......it took me 5 minutes to fix it 
thanks to this information
from Riki, 4X4NJ.

>I've recently found the fix for this which is quite simple:
>1.  Remove the rubber skirt on the knob.
>2.  Loosen the set-screw using an allen wrench and remove the knob.
>3.  There is a spiral spring wrapped around 2 parts - one being a
>small plastic washer.
>4.  Remove the spring by carefully rotating it counter clockwise - it
>should unscrew and easily         slip off of the assembly.
>5.  Now, make sure the plastic washer is snugly against the part in
>back of it on the shaft.
>6.  Next, carefully screw the spring back on by rotating it clockwise
>as it is being lightly
>          pressed inward.
>7.  Rotate the spring clockwise, as far as you're able to with your
>fingers (no tools!).
>8.  Replace the knob, tighten the set screw, and put the rubber skirt
>back on.
>9.  Enjoy!!
