Default DW 5000 single pedal - keep breaking spring

Has anyone else here had this problem? I play and excellerator model with the tension set fairly tight but not nearly "maxed out." Aside from woodshedding the music I play most often is blues, classic rock, r&b and some funk. I play agressive but I don't abuse my pedal, and I'm certain the problem isn't too much tension. I've now broken 3 or 4 springs, right where it connects to the tension adjustment. This is now 2 in the past six months.

Anyone else? This is getting to be a real drag. I otherwise love this pedal, but...

I'd suspect a burr or some defect in the tension adjustment. Post a pic.
