You said your AAR was 'partly' open. I don't know what your ambient temp is, but mine is near fully open generally, when cold. Sometimes they get sticky. Othertimes they go out of whack - warped bimetallic finger. You could try
1) just flicking the disc open with a screw driver and see if it moves easily (won't damage - only pushing against the finger). If it moves freely then go to (2)
2) Do as Mark? said, and remove it and put in fridge with left overs. After 30 mins see if is fully open - should be - at 4 deg C. If not go to (3)
3) Your finger is out of whack and needs remedy. If this is the case, we can fix it.
If it does not move freely with screw driver (1), then either gunked up - should be able to see, or something restricting it from opening properly.
You may just not be getting enough air on startup.
