Mobil T3 Bottom Dump Door Won't Open

Hey Folks,

As the subject says. I have a Mobil T3 with the bottom dump. The door for dumping is sticking shut. I know its likely got crap in the track but this is a new problem. Never had this before. Any suggestions on getting it freed up and what might be causing it?

Thanks.
