Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** are a few common problems that could be causing this. Either the tension struts that push the partition in place are weak and not holding the partition in place against the micro switch or the micro switch is bad or the partition hinge is broken. Check the tension struts first as it is the most common problem. The part number for the struts is 209 690 00 59.

Let me know if you have any questions.
