    Corkscrew will not operate properly and leaves cork in bottle. What to do?

    The Forum Connoisserur Lever Corkscrew CSL 30251SKN6598830251 - 5  was still in the box until last night and used for the first time 3/19/11.  The corkscrews screws into the cork perfectly and directly returns just as perfectly without holding on to the cork, leaving it in the bottle. We have read and applied the dirrections on the box to no avail.  Please help. NancyBoyd  (269) 56905657, 2996 Hunters Hill Kalamazoo MI 49048

    If you have a long screw just screw it into the cork and leave about 1/8 inch sticking out and use a claw hammer to get it out wink lol or return yours and get a new one. I see you live in Kalamazoo! I live in Grand Rapids!!

    Break the bottle in a bucket. Drink contents out of bucket. Problem solved.

    >edit. Wait make sure there is no glass in the bucket first wink

    Sounds like a defective unit. On the downward push of the lever the corkscrew spins, (a gear mechanism in the opener), when you raise the lever to extract the cork the gear is supposed to lock so that the corkscrew DOES NOT turn, so that the cork is gripped and extracted by the spirals in the corkscrew.

    If possible, look under the lever handle to make sure no extraneous material is interfering with the gear lock. If nothing is there then you need to seek a replacement unit - yours is defective.
