KJ Classic 3 control vent closes when I open the lid

I am having an issue with the control tower closing on me when I open the dome.   I am referring to main top, not the dial.  I just bought the grill a few weeks ago and have only done a few cooks so far.  This is the first one where I was running a higher temp and was using the main control swivel instead of the dial.  I tried tightening the Allen head screw, but it is already quite tight.  I am afraid that I would either strip or snap the screw if I put any more torque on it.  Is this common with the KJCIII?

I jsut pull the center piece out of the Kontrol Tower and don't try to swing it to the side.

My top gasket is so loose that if i try to open the grill with the vent open it falls off anyway

Thanks for the reply John. 

Maybe I am doing it wrong as I am still quite new to this.  What I was trying to do was crack open the main control tower about a quarter or so.  I didn't want to have it at full throttle.  It may be that I needed more charcoal and then the control wheel would have handled it at 600 degrees without the need to open the main tower.

You can get 600 with the slider fully open...... I think I posted a sticky post in the kj section how to do that...
