Question Awning Camlock not working correctly

My Dometic A & E awning camlock will allow the awning to to retract but not open up without me manually holding the camlock lever down. It was working fine until I put the new awning material on it. What the heck did I do wrong? Help!
Thank you!

Had the same thing happen on one of my other a&e awning and found the cam spring had broke. The tube end will have to be removed to fix it. Just be careful there is a lot of tension in the torsion spring.make sure to pin it well.
