Jolley from Australia

G'day fellow sea mates. I have purchased a new secondhand vessel with a lewmar 700 pro series. It initially worked well but I have just recently had a problem when trying to drop the anchor in free fall the brass plunger jam's on the stopper cam? this stopping the anchor from deploying. I am still able to operate up and dawn under power its just jamming in the free fall position. does anyone have an idea what is going on here and how to fix it.
your help would be hugely appreciated
