sluggish top down bottom up blinds

We have an about five year old top down bottom up cordless blind. Bought a new one for a different window. The new one goes up and down so smoothly. In comparison I can tell how the older blind takes more effort.

Is there any minimally invasive adjusting, maintenance, for this style of blind....or does this fall into the, "if it ain't broke don't fix it" category.

Could be one or more of the cords is getting hung up somewhere or starting to fray. Sometimes they just need to be restrung. (I know it's cordless, but there's still cords in there).
If it's a custom blind, it may be under warranty or partial warranty, or at least they can restring it for you or replace a part that may be breaking.
There are probably videos somewhere that can show you how to take it apart and DIY if you think you're able.
If it's still working tho, you may just want to live with it for now.
