    It happened with my BB , when changing setting, I opened door put on setting @1 closed doors making sure not to over tighten, opened doors put on my setting @5 closed an was back to normal.

    If do not open easily, then dried soap is clogging a bit. the knob must turn easily without any resistance,. Soak in hot water(not boiling) then rinse with pressure down barrel, let dry, then spray down barrel with WD-40, open and close till doors open and close with ease.

    If it is still out of line or off then it is in need of repair

    Honestly, I'd shave with that and see if it even mattered. Nothing there looks scary to me. I'd go easy, use a low setting, like 3 or 4, and see what it gave me.
    There are slant razors designed with a far more exaggerated or pronounced difference in blade exposure from one end to the other that people shave with every day. MHO.

    That does look to be off a bit, and it would irritate me too. Still, it shouldn't cause any issues while shaving.

    I'm sorry this happened to you, and I hope your razor is still usable.
    Who knows? Maybe it will make it a better shaver.
