How I Fixed My Waring Pro Slicer

My cheap Waring slicer died last week; you could hear the gearbox turning but the blade wasn't spinning.  After walking away for a bit to calm down, I returned and started to take it apart.  I found the culprit: a metal worm gear was responsible for spinning a cheap plastic gear, and the metal gear had clearly worn down the cogs of the plastic gear.  A quick Google search led me to a couple of places that sold replacement parts, and a little over a week later the part arrived.  Here is a picture tutorial on how to replace that gear.








Hope this saves someone some trouble somewhere down the road!  All told this takes about 5 minutes to fix.  The hard part was waiting for the replacement gear to arrive.

I am interested in your supplier as well as I am the owner of a Waring as well, thanks Craig. It works fine but a source may be useful in the future...JJ

I typed something like "waring fs150 replacement gear" into Google, and started looking at a few.  There are a couple of sites, but I ordered from www.smallappliance.com after I found a site that had a diagram of all of the parts with labels, so I felt safe ordering the exact gear I needed.  I paid extra for "expedited processing" but it still took almost a week before it was shipped.  All told, it was 10 days from ordering to getting it in my mailbox.
 

I would suggest looking around though...there was one site that I found AFTER I had placed my order that offered a set of three of the gears (apparently they know this is a problem) for almost the same price, and also had much more reasonable shipping rates.

What I used:
