I’m Incredibly frustrated and upset

DM6 Cymbal problems

On my DM6 I got just over 5 months ago, I have one cymbal that is triggering after I hit it, or not triggering at all when I hit it. I've tried factory resets and lowering sensitivity, but it doesn't help. It has a maybe 1 inch tear on the edge of the rubber pad, too. It's really ruining the set. When I put the hi-hat cord in the cymbal, it only triggers when closed with very hard hits, and triggers two or three times when I hit it open, or not at all. With the crash cord, it will randomly trigger whenever I hit a pad, and with the ride cord, it sometimes won't trigger or will do it around 5 times.
