6. The plunger outlined in red and the brass fitting outlined in yellow below can become stuck due to build up. Make sure that these parts are free and clear. All build up cleaned from them. The gasket of the plunger can dry and also cause it to get stuck closed. A small amount of food safe lubricant can help keep this from sticking.
