Clean the bearing
Clean the bearing seat
Make sure your response is good (as in flush or recessed [if you even use silicone o.O])

If it’s still responsive then it might be the bearing. Try a different one to find out. If it’s not the bearing then the bearing seat is probably bent or damaged in some way

If it really is just the bearing then odds are there’s no saving it. Best bet is to get a good replacement bearing.

After you’ve cleaned and tested the bearing if it’s unresponsive then go ahead and drop a lil lube on there.
