The control valve with have a cover or plug on the end opposite the handle. Underneath this will be an adjustement screw. Turn it in about an 1/8 of a turn and try it. If it does help go another 1/8 of a turn. If that does not help back it out 1/4 turn to the original position and then go an additional 1/8 turn. Let me know if it fixes the problem.
