LX-200 drawing excess current

My old LX-200 recently seems to run 400-500 mA even when it is not slewing and goes to the max erratically when slewing.
It will grind to a halt when slewing a long distance.
Does anyone know where this current drain is going?

Might be that it needs to be cleaned and re lubed?
