Fuel flow indicator sticks

I purchased my first Bonanza (A36) this last October and I'm having a blast flying it. This last month when I start to lean the engine during cruise after takeoff the fuel flow indicator sticks at the max rate - When I tap the glass on the gauge the needle falls to the correct fuel flow rate - this happens almost on every flight now. Any advice on what can be done to correct the issue.

Unfortunately, instrument repair is restricted to repair stations that have certification for the particular instrument you have. If your aircraft is a pre 1984 A36 with the direct pressure reading gauge, shops such as Mid Continent Instrument (800-821-1212) can repair, overhaul or provide an overhauled exchange unit. If you have the small, electrical instrument of the 1984 and newer A36s, I believe Aero Mach Labs (800-221-4678) will repair them.
