    I had the same issue with that "thing" (don't remember off hand which part it is) sticking on mine when I first got it. It had been leaning in a corner of my parents' house untouched for 7 years or so, and it had been hanging on the wall in my grandfathers garage for decades before that, though in use while Grandpa had it. I used a screwdriver to push it down, lubed it up really well, and it's been fine ever since.
    A spray can of Break Free or similar will be your best bet, as it is hard to get in there.

    Let us know if that doesn't work; I'm more than willing to get mine out and disassemble it to figure out how to help. :)
