Craftsman Snowblower problem

I am having a problem with my Craftsman snowblower. The chute angle lever does not seem to be working. When I move the lever up, the chute angle does not change. It should increase the angle upward. When I move the lever down, about half way down I will feel some tension, as normal, and then the chute will move downward as expected. Once, I move the lever up again, there is no tension and the chute will not move. I have to manualy move the chute upward, and I cannot always get it all the way up. This makes it so that I cannot throw snow as far as I need to. Has anyone expericenced a similar issue with Craftsman snowblowers? Is the chute angle lever prone to this type of problem?
Thanks Chuck
