spare tire hoist

I just bought and installed a new spare tire hoist in my 08 suburban 2500. I was able release te cable all the way, but I can't seem to get it to retract. The cable only retracts about halfway and them jams/stops. I have tried releasing it and then trying to retract several times, but it always stops about halfway in. Anyone have this happen to them? I guess the new hoist is broken, but I don't know if I am missing something.

Interesting. I'll keep that in mind. Since I couldn't get it to work, I returned it. I'll order another one soon and if the same thing happens, I'll remember what you said about the burrs.
