My first task in trouble shooting a sticky retract is to loosen all the mounting screws. See if it frees up. If it does, then the retract rails are not true. I've sometimes rebeded them with washers but when its bad I'll lift up the retract and slop some thickened epoxy or JB weld in there, coat the retract rails with vaseline and screw the retract back down. Not tight, just snug.
