I just bought my Portugese floor corker and am trying to use it for the first time but the spring loaded base doesn't actually bounce back? It takes me pushing down with my foot just to move it and then it won't come back. I've tried spraying WD-40 per an instruction I saw online but that's not helping. Anyone else have any thoughts? Really frustrating

Toward the back of the unit there should be a small spring with two nuts on the bottom. Adjusting those nuts "up" will allow the handle to release the bottle base. The nuts are supposed to be jammed into one another so that they cannot move.

Also, the corker handle needs to be all the way up to release the bottle base
