Sticky valve? Try removing it and cleaning it out with a little carb spray

In response to your answer concerning sticking air control valve.
My problem was voltage was appiied to control with ignition switch Off which caused battery to run down.

Also, I did spray cleaner into revolving valve of unit.
Thanks for info so far, I hope that additional information will help diagnose my problem.
