    It sounds like a leaky handle bearing, you should be able to remove and replace the bearing. Probably have to have some sort of puller to get the bearing out, and then press the new one in, or carefully tap it in.

    Sounds like light oil was put in the bearings instead of grease, which doesn't tend to leak.
