Check the zoom tracks

If you look into the front of the lens in bright light, zoom it in and out, and look at the three zoom tracks. Check for any dings in these. If the front of the lens has been knocked sideways, it can damage these tracks, and make the zoom action stick at that point. If you can see any damage, I would return it, as it has probably been dropped.
