I investigated the problem by opening the mixer (four screws) and examining the gear box. Two gears were stripped. I ordered them, using the parts diagram provided. They arrives in about two days. I disassembled the gear box, cleaning out all grease and inspected for further damage. The gears and housing were completely cleaned with solvent. The transmission was then reassembled and regreased with food-grade grease. The mixer is now reassembled and working well. I was very pleased with the price and simplicity of my repair, versus taking it to a repair shop.
