i bought a dw9000 single pedal about 7 months ago and already the cam bearing is sticky and starting to grind (if you've ever had a bad wheel bearing on a car...). i was wondering if anyone knows what i should do... was i supposed to habitually lubricate the bearing? hopefully dw will be helpful. theyre closed for the weekend so i wont know untill monday, but my guess is that ill need a new part because somethings most likely bad... thanks -Derek

Have you tried giving it a spray with WD-40 or anything? Could just be a little bit of dirt managed to get its way in there or something.

On my dw 5002 the left pedal started to stick but i just took apart
both pedals and sprayed wd-40 on it and now it works fine. I thnk
you should oil your pedals at least every 4 months.

yea i definitely forgot to oil it just not thinking of it... and because of that i think there's permanent damage to the bearing but dw is being really cool and they're fixing it for me... and now im going to oil pretty much all of the moving parts on my drumset. thanks for the tips guys
