Default Spring Air Retract binding?!?!

I have had a similar problem with the Spring Airs in my F-16.
I have 1 that hangs up sometimes. When this happens, if I push it further up into the full retract position I hear a pop and it will release. It seems this only happens when I dont have enough pressure in the tank to make it close hard enough that the piston gets pulled fully back. So, you may want to make sure you have plenty of air in the tank. I need a minimum of 100 lbs and only cycle them once. It will almost always hang on the second cycle.
Good Luck. Doug
