If you haven't already, take the servo assembly off of the PCB. See if the gear and shaft rotate freely when it's not pressed against the board. Give everything a good cleaning and re-assemble it. If it still isn't moving well, I've seen the servo assembly sold separately at my local hobby shop. You could replace that part by itself, or if it's a stand-alone servo (not the integrated servos on the all-in-one board,) replacing the whole thing might save you some headache for a couple dollars more.
