I went back and looked at the old post and I see I commented on it.
Does yours have plastic gears? I hope ours has metal gears but I am not sure unless there is a serial number that would indicate that. Ours has held up, but rarely use the dough hook.
I just looked and there is this warning label on out dough hook. Do you have that warning sticker?
