My Aprilaire Zoning system works great but should the dampers be closing all the way?

Consumer question:

My 6 zone system has been running great, but now I have one motorized baffle that doesn\’t close all the way half of the time. I uncovered it and energized it and de-energized it watched it go all the way to the stop about 1/2 of the time, and then the other 1/2 of the time it would stop 1/8\"-1/4\" before the stop. Is there some kind of maintenance or adjusting that needs to be done to get this to work properly again? I\’m also concerned that other baffles may start doing the same thing.
