CDI Furler Halyard is Getting Stuck

When I bought the boat last summer, the prior owner helped me rig the sails. We had trouble getting the genoa up on the furler, and he did something involving an aerosal spray can, I presume lubricant, but I do not know what he did. I started working on something else while he fiddled with it, and then it was up about 10 minutes later. Should've paid more attention.

So basically, the halyard for the furler, with or without the genoa on it, is very hard to move up and down. The genoa came down fine last fall, but when I reversed direction on the halyard, it then seemed to jam in place. And that's where I'm at. I can't see anything that looks wrong, though I haven't gone up the mast and don't want to if it can be helped.

Ideas?
