I’ve seen this several times on this model. It will charge to 96-99% and stop. You can try recalibrating it, or just live with the 97%.

I haven't let it drop below the current 97% because I'm worried it will just discharge entirely and never hold a charge again, but maybe I'll try letting it get to 90 and seeing what happens
