Stirrer bearing
turtle
Has anyone worn out a stirrer bearing?

Mine is so wobbly that beans are getting stuck under the arms

.

Which part are you referring to?
Sometimes as beans expand they'll get stuck between the agitator arm and the drum or something similar.

I wouldn't think anything should be worn out yet on a B-2K+

I've had my B-2K for 3 or 4 years now and never had to fix anything mechanical (I did have to replace the fuse thing)

This one was an older well used B model when I bought it 5 years ago.

It might be just too many roasts through the cooling tray.

Motor (stirrer) wobbles quite a bit which lets the agitator wobble and get stuck.

I've not yet replaced every part but getting very close now.
