I believe this is the first indication of this issue with a 2014 model. It seemed to be a common problem with the 2013s and several owners were successful in getting it repaired under warranty. Your description of the problem, however, differs a bit from the original one. That complaint was about it being very difficult to push the lever up and down. I don't think there were any issues with it not cancelling. In any case, good luck with the DIY fix.
I was able to get a new one through a friend at Ford at no cost. I installed it myself. I went to the liberty of performing surgery on the old unit. Although it is hard to judge how smooth the old unit operates when holding it in my hands and maneuvering the lever, I would say my repair seems much better than when it first came out of the steering column. I am going to keep it as a spare that will probably never be used again or I am willing to sell it to someone if they dont want to perform the fix themselves but are willing to spend 10-15 minutes uninstalling and installing the unit I have.
PS It sucks it took a friend to fix a known issue with the turn signal and not FORD directly.
