Get used to a palm spin, do it a bit angled, then follow the same principle really.  I can't exactly help too much because I dont know what's stopping you.
 If you look through this, this may help you realize the problem if you think about it, but everybody's different.  These could all be problems causing your spin to stop half way through.

Are you not tucked enough
Are your feet grazing the wall
Are you chickening out
Are you not putting the proper support on your bottom hand
Are you jumping into the wall too much/not enough
Are you not starting the rotation correctly (too early/late)
Where are you looking
How far/close to the wall do you start running from
What angle are you approaching the wall
What angle is your spin at?
What is your head doing during the spin?
where are your feet at on takeoff

The best way to find out the solution to a move is to take it apart and examine each aspect of each movement.
