Default PC 690 Plunge Base problem.

I picked up a new (used) router yesterday. Was out looking for hand planes, but couldn't pass up the deal on this one.

It does have a problem though, the plunge action sticks something terrible. The downward motion works reasonably well, but does seem to catch just a bit. Releasing the plunge lock though -- there is about a 5% chance that the plunge will rise to the top of the base. I have to push downwards again (numerous times) and finally it will manage to push the base all the way out.

I'm going to tear it down tomorrow and see if I can find anything obvious, but thought I'd ask here if anyone has anything specific for me to look for.
