'05 X5 - Windshield defroster works on full blast only

Everytime I turn on the front windshield defroster, it blows full blast. If I try to turn it down even one spot, it goes off. What am I doing wrong?

thats normal. it should only take a few seconds to defrost on full blast. i guess if you need something more gradual, you can always point the AC/heat towards the windshield at whatever fan speed you want.
