Never hurts to put a little grease on a gear but don't over do it. Grease their won't free up your peddle though. Make sure your cables aren't binding. Try and get a spray lubricant and shoot some lube into the shielding and work them back and forth. Also make sure the cable rollers in the foot pedal are lubricated and working properly.

The burnt connectors and melted insulation sure don't look good, did you fix that? Do you have a pic of the fix?

I made the repairs to all the connectors.  I used butt connectors.  Didn't think to take pictures.
