Bowflex 552 problem?

Another question. I have a set of selecttech 552 dumbbells and I like them a lot. Recently I have had an issue with them sticking to their base and with one of the dials sticking to the point of almost not turning. They aren't very old (six months perhaps) and I have looked around online for maintenance ideas but they are supposed to be self lubricating. I'm not throwing them around or sticking them in the dirt so that's not the issue. I'm wondering if any of you have had similar problems or know how to fix said problem.

Then, after the wave has subsided and I let go I want to watch it slump into a broken mass, whimpering. When the word "why?" crosses it's bloody swollen lips the only reply that will come is "yes... why?".

I had em and the same thing happened to me. Honestly all i did was lift the whole set a few inches off the ground and dropped in. Took me about 3 times but then it started working fine and they never stuck again after that.
