My guess - the lock actuator is starting to leak. You can fix it or replace it. The balance around here tips in favor of replacing it since the cost of a new one amortizes to nothing over a 20 year life. The cost of a new diaphragm amortizes to even less but you risk damaging the housing whenever you touch it and there aren't good stats on the life of a replacement diaphragm.

Dig in there with a Mighty-vac and check the hoses, fittings, etc. before buying parts.
