Repairing a broken cake mixer

Well, SOMEBODY has to! :) This is part of my new little project: Repairing things for me and for others. It is so easy to just throw stuff away when they no longer work, and often to expensive to take them to a repair shop, so I thought I would do my part for our planet by repairing as many things as I can.

The problem: Weird sounds, no movement, burnt smell.
The solution: A part of the fan had come off and got stuck. Scraped the fan and fan housing clean and used a round file to smooth things. Good as new.
