It sounds like your solenoid is sticking. To fix the problem follow the instructions in this post. Let us know if that does not solve your problem.

when you disassemble it just simply wipe it off.

Make sure you clean down inside the solonoid too. I only cleaned the piston and it didn't resolve my sticking noid. I did it again but took a q-tip and cleaned out some black gunk inside and now mine doesn't stick.

Aside from getting a screw extractor, you could get some super glue or JB weld and put it in the hole of the screw while the screwdriver is in it as well. You should be able to get it out after that and then put one of the screws that came in the parts kit in its place.
