The oil had turned gummy.

Only use key oil made specifically for woodwind instruments or sewing machine oil as that doesn't contain resin that will gum things up.

DON'T use 3-in-1 oil as that's just for door hinges and has no place anywhere near any woodwind mechanisms. If your repairer uses it, then take your oboe and run away very fast.

Chris.
