Go to the back of the ski and see if you can actuate the gate by hand you'll see the linkage coming out and usually they have a quick disconnect on it (or it might be steering). I will give you a copy of the FSM and you can look around to find the problem. There could be 1 of 5 things wrong but with your vague description it'll be hard to diagnose it on the computer, and itll be up to you to Figure that out. Good luck, let us know what you find.

If you didn't bend the mechanism somehow, then it probably just needs some lubrication.
If you don't mind being without the ski and the dealer will fix it for free, then might as well. I try to work on my own as much as possible personally.

My VXS was like that brand new. I just about broke the handle when it finally let loose. Lube what you can find. Try having someone lift the lever up and down fully while you observe the bucket and linkage working and you will probably see the point at which it kinks and what gives way when the lever finally lets loose. Mine got better over time after repeated use but it still breaks loose somewhat hard at the beginning of the pullout.

Did you put a valve on the gay spray? Could have managed to get it the way maybe?

Check the plastic covering the spray tube it got in the way of my reverse bucket so it could not drop.
