Lightbulb Carb Slider Problem NEED HELP ASAP

Has anyone had a problem of there slider freezing up after running. My Savage X just recently started acting up and after running it and letting it sit over night the slider locks. When I turn on the receiver/radio I always do a servo test but the servo wont open the carb. The servo is fine but I always have to disassemble and manually pull the carb open with some force. I dont know what to do and this is really bugging me. I have put a few drops of ARO in and it hasn't helped.

just a shot in the dark but sounds to me like the low speed needle is getting stuck in the seat after your done running and shut it off move servo by hand to open carb and then let it sit over night see if this solves your problem if so back the low speed needle out a couple turns

The idle screw could be in to far, reset your needles to factory and tune
dont use the idle to keep it running.

pull the carby apart and clean the slider as well s the barrel there is some fine dirt in there.you will find the rubber boot on the slider has hole in it so replace that to. spray the hole lot out with nitro cleaner or carby cleaner dry off place 1 drop of aro on slider then re assemble.
