Guide :Food Mixers : K45SS Classic Stand Mixer
Mixer runs, but will not turn beater.
Here's what happened. My wife dropped a chop blade out of a chopper into the bowl while it was mixing. The mixer stopped by her turning it off or on its own. Removing the blade, the mixer will not spin the beater. I think it broke some teeth on gears inside. Have not looked to be sure.
Is this easy to fix and can you get the new gears if that is the problem?
