I have installed a pair of deore shifters on a bike that have been sitting for a year or 2. Both have new cables, rear mechs fine.

Problem being the the thumb lever will move but its not catching to pull cable, its "free moving"

I've opened it up and its free of mud

is this common, any easy fixes?

That used to happen with my older setup. Spray some silicone or wd40 in there and it should work. That's what mine did anyway. I used to have to push the thumb shifter a few times to get it to take.
