put a few drops of oil into the jaws, then run the mechanism back and forth quite a few times, there is most likely just a ton of dried debris in there. Some chucks you can screw totally off and use a dowel , pressing it into the hole where the chuck screws on, this pushes the jaws forward and back and will let you better work the oil into the mechanism.

Worst case scenario and you have broken springs which can be very difficult to find and/or make.
