Broken after 15 minutes of play?

After a hard and long setup time with the thing constantly falling apart, I finally got it to work. While playing, the pedal would always come loose at some point.

It got to a point where the hinge mechanism that is supposed to keep the pedal on the base totally broke off.

I think this was a refurbrished piece, I won't be ordering Millenium pedals anytime soon...
