Auto Mute isn't working

Hello everyone! I'm a brand new theremini baby, and today I was doing the very first task - calibrating my new theremini. Everything was going wonderfully until I realised that no matter how many times I went through 'setup' and used the 'presets' knob to select 'Yes', auto-mute will not work.

When I have my hands away from the volume, it continues to play loudly. It is only once I remove my hand from along the pitch antenna scale line (of course) that the sound stops. This makes it almost impossible to silently line up notes with my pitch hand before increasing the volume. I've been into setup multiple times and it definitely says that Auto-mute is on - so am I missing something? Am I expecting it to work in a different way than I thought?

My understanding was that when you took your hand away from the volume, it should mute. Has anyone else had this issue? Thanks so much in advance for any advice!

It refers to the pitch antenna, not to the volume
