Double dang it, I pulled out the machine, dusted it off, took off the covers preparing to do some lubing. The machine would turnover but slow and then pick back up and repeat. I kept looking and noticed it was occurring at the same point on a plastic gear, I thought it was a large glop of old grease, further inspection revealed a cracked plastic gear. I will be taking it in for assesment tomorrow. I may be looking for a new machine. Dang it!
