Truly shoddy quality. None of this should be happening. I've tried finding parts, but can't, so I'll have to fix this myself. As it stands, I had to saw off the motor cover because the screws are stuck. Did I mention the sucktitudinous qualit of this machine? When it works, it works great, but it's just not a survivor.
