Default Servo problem

I bought tamiya tt-01 set and assembled it. Today i finished it. The problem is, that my steering servo is turning right only 1 teeth. No problem turning left. I allready took the servo out but it makes the same thing when its on table, connected. Radio is acoms Technisport 2.4ghz, servo acoms, receiver acoms. Servo is not broken, i tested another servo. I allready reseted radio settings, and have tested all settings in radio. What could be wrong

your servo arm may not be centered correctly

I wonder if they assembled the servo gears incorrectly. There could be a dead-stop on the heavyest gear that is hitting other gear. You can open the servo and have a look.

When you turn it right, does it make any noise like it is trying hard to get there? Or it just goes 1 "teeth" and stops?

I have two same servos and both are making the same thing. Servo just stops, no sound, nothing.

Could be the receiver but there is no way to test it.

Its either receiver, or switch on the radio, that makes the servo turn right.
I just bought the receiver and radio. Maybe i try sending them back. Is there any way to test the switch on radio without disassembling?

I am out of ideas. Before you ship, talk to folks that have it or even call/email the store.

There is a lot of info/people talking about this radio:

Yes, im talking about the same thing on few other forums. Nobody knows whats wrong with it. Ill call to the shop tomorrow. Thanks for helping . Hope i get this thing settled.

EDIT: Now i know whats wrong... The steering wheel's switch thinks its allways turned right alltought its in neutral position. When i turn the wheel all the way left, the radio says its neutral.
