Have you physicaly check the cable if its stretch and the return spring if its sprung-this is the 2 that can cause your problem if you're dissatisfied request for refund. Its not that much of problem why its not returning it very obvious to determine which is which.

I don't see a spring, check difference in height between diaphram spring fingers, adjust fingers if height differential exceeds specifications.

So it would seem the diaphram fingers provide the "spring".

However, as Rasmataz pointed out, the cable itself could be binding.

I would disconnect cable from clutch pedal, check clutch pedal for free movement at pivot, if OK, then replace the cable. If problem persists, you will have to adjust fingers, or replace diaphram.
