Knob fell out of the front of the mixer into the bowl and jammed the beater. This caused the motor to strip the plastic worm gear. Open unit to investigate and found about 4 teeth missing out of the worm gear. Ordered a replacement. Installed the new gear once received in about 30 minutes. Wife is now happy again. Just need to make sure you pack enough gease into the new gear before reassembling the unit.
