This would normally be caused by damage eg by the lens being dropped. Inspect the lens carefully to see if there are signs of this.
It's not likely there is an easy remedy. You can try a tiny drop or two of fine lubricant to see if that eases the mechanics. But otherwise these (I assume this is the 2 ring SP 27A) are quite common and relatively cheap. Just get another one.
