My E-M1 has developed a sticky shutter in cold weather. What is the treatment?

Technician's Assistant: How long have you had your E-M1?

Several years. Bought new from B&H.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far?

Warming up solved the problem. Just removing the lens helped the first time, but not after that.
