It sounds like you sheared off a drive pin on the tracking mechanism and that is causing one side to lag behind. This isn't a difficult fix, as long as you didn't jam the room too tightly in the cocked position. Can you attach a photo of the underside of the room out near the ends of the rails so I can see if I can spot the problem? All follow ups are included in our fee.
