Our mixer was starting to squeak and grind while mixing. We purchased this mixer in 1981 making it 32 years old. I found a nice little Youtube video on how to disassemble the unit. So I did take it apart and redistribute the grease as several gears looked rather dry. Now it sounds much better. There was plenty of grease still present.
Our Northwest corner of the basement showed a little water on the floor again and the drinking water has a slight taste again. So I suspect the float switch failed and the reservoir overflowed. Since the reservoir is under ground this can lead to fowl tasting water as muddy water seeps back into the tank. Interestingly this water never becomes cloudy.
