Stirrer bearing

Has anyone worn out a stirrer bearing?

Mine is so wobbly that beans are getting stuck under the arms

Which part are you referring to?
Sometimes as beans expand they'll get stuck between the agitator arm and the drum or something similar.

I wouldn't think anything should be worn out yet on a B-2K+

I've had my B-2K for 3 or 4 years now and never had to fix anything mechanical (I did have to replace the fuse thing)

This one was an older well used B model when I bought it 5 years ago.

It might be just too many roasts through the cooling tray.

Motor (stirrer) wobbles quite a bit which lets the agitator wobble and get stuck.

I've not yet replaced every part but getting very close now.
