    If these are the screws that hold the pedal plates on they can sometimes be a little tight. Often a flat bladed screwdriver will shift them but the blade needs to be a tight fit in the Allen socket. You may be able to resolve your problem without taking the pedal unit apart by using switch cleaner spray but don't go overboard. Use the plastic tube to get close to the the pot, where you see the slight gap in the casing close to the terminals. Give a quick spray and operate the pedal a few times.

    Here is a tip if you ever have another tight screw on anything, spray some WB40 on the screw, helped me out allot with very tight screws.
