Flow hive frames opening and closing

I had a big infestation of ants into my Flow Hive super so I removed it for cleaning. Hard to get wax off but did what I could and figured the bees would clean it up. For a while before I took it off I had noticed frames not properly opening or closing in some sections of each frame. After the clean up the same problem still exists - any ideas welcome please?

I think you mean cells on the frame not setting correctly.
Sounds like something fouling the mechanism, are the top keyholes visibly clear? photos will help.
From memory you have had to clean the frames in the past for some reason? Have you had the Fframes apart?

Hey @eurekawoman are you sure the stuff is wax, not propolis gumming up the works?
