sounds like the chain may need some lube. Has it affected the performance?

Mine starting doing the same and I found out the squeaking sound was coming from the spring.

Yep same here with mine, it's the spring that's making that noise. I don't think it's affecting the performance of the pedal but you can put some kind of lubricant in there to make the annoying sound go away

It's the spring.

I have a DW spring on my Eliminator, and it sometimes does the same thing as what you guys are talking about.

I spray a Teflon type lubricant on a rag and wipe it on the spring and work it in good, and that stops it for quite a while.
