Lenco L 85 spare parts or help


I've just got my hands on a white Lenco L85, it's a beut.
Unfortunatley the arm lifter doesn't work properly. when I lift it up n down manually it goes really slow and you have to put some pressure on it to make it move. Needless to say the spring inside isn't strong enough to lift the whole mechanism.

Is this a result of a poor string or is it the lifter that needs to be replaced?

Thankfull for all the help I can get
