As to the main not coming down, that is a routine maintenance
thing. Use Teflon spray on the rollers whenever it starts to get sticky. We were told to never use WD40 there, so I am relaying this without knowing the exact reason.
Bad advice, i tell you why,, any kind of WD or teflon or whatever lubricant repellent spray in the batten cars and the torlon balls start to stop spin evenly inside of the races,, i see thousands of torlon balls toasted by one side and the other in fine shape, fresh water
and soap, thats all.... cheers.
