    Restring if everything else is in working order, restring kits are cheap.

    Yrs ago, I had a general type procedure I went bye. 5KW = Hook strip bolt to van hinge and stretch to 58" length with tape measure ending at start of other end strip bolt. Go to string and maybe have to re stretch just a bit longer. Think 10KW was 61".

    had a senior tech tell me to run a string the length of the element run and then stretch to that.

    Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals". Their stated reason for this policy "... the animals become dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."
