Inside your main 7x7
What lubes do you recommend for pieces ? Weight 1 or some other lubes like Moyu's or Qiyi's ?
Any Cubicle or Speedcubeshop lube works great. If you live in an area where you can’t access those, than you should try Weight 1 or 2 depending on how fast you want your cube. Higher weights are slower. Also, it should be noted that although lower weights take less time to break in, they last less than heavier weights.
I tried someone else’s Gan lube in a Rubik’s Brand, and it worked really well, but I can’t trust Rubik’s Brands.

Unfortunately, your core is probably stripped. As in the screw’s hole has been worn away so that I you can take it out without unscrewing it. Get new cube, or try using some removable adhesive to stick it in place. e.g. blue tack around the screw.

so i've had a valk4m as my main 4x4 for about 9 months now. I've broke all my pbs with it and it got me to a 38-39 average. however, recently ive noticed that the inner layers are really 'sticky'. as in, the magnets are so strong that it prevents the cube from turning at all. i bought the one with strong magnets but i didn't think it wouldn't let me turn the inner layers. on the contrary, the outer layers are better than my 3x3 main so i want to keep this cube. any ideas as to how to fix this?

Did I ruin my Qiyi Warrior S?
I was recently cubing when I realized a severe... let’s say bumpiness in my cube. It’s not very loose but if feels like its slow and loose at the same time. I haven’t done anything to it and haven’t out anything into it. It also doesn’t corner cut as well as others I see in reviews. It turns horribly when turned slow and corner pieces move around a lot. Is this a result of taking it apart it often?

Clean it and lube it.

It could be a result of taking it apart, but you also might have just gotten a bad cube. If you did, the Yuxin Little Magic is way better. I have 3 of them, and all of them are great. Awesome quality control.
