3rd gear spends at 1st gear speed with clicking noise
The 1st and 2nd gears work great, but the 3rd one spends only as fast as the 1st. Also, there is a clicking noise that is only present in the 3rd speed. This happens consistantly, like maybe a gear is missing a tooth or something. Do you have any advice? I have it taken apart pretty good right now and would love to get it fixed. Thanks!

One issue could be that 1st and 2nd are the same speed, but third is faster.That is caused by having the two nuts in the bottom of the planetary too tight. This pinches the bushings in the second speed gear which drives by friction faster than the gears of 1st causing 1st to slip. Back off the acorn nut and thin lock nut perhaps a half to a full turn. Hold the lock nut and tighten the acorn nut to it. You can tes the setting by pushing up on he planetary. You should see about a 1/16" movement.
If you only have one speed in all gears, either the internal gear selector is broken, or a key is sheared between a gear and shaft.
Jeff your almost there....it must be the shifter into third....it must not slide fully into third....check for wear marks on the worm gear....and try running it without the protective cover on to see how it changes from 1st, into 2nd, then third...that mechanisim if not engaging totally in third.
Best guess is that the gear for 3rd speed is seized together with it's brass bushing and the center, large transmission shaft. I don't recall which gear is for 3rd, but the transmission has two gears (2nd and 3rd speed) which have brass bushings in them. The brass bushing should spin freely on the center shaft (when in final position - sometimes they pull off the shaft tough, but spin freely when in final position, my opinion is that this is OK), and the gear should spin freely of the brass bushing. My guess is that the 3rd speed gear, being seized to the center shaft, cannot freely idle on the center shaft, which would result in being stuck in 3rd gear.
Check the spring pin that locks the motor shaft to the main drive gear in the gear box. You should be able to turn the motor from the back at the cooling fins and watch the shaft spin in the gear, that is if the pin is sheared. That is a common problem. if you plan on keeping this machine for a while, i recomend that you spend a little more on a quality spring pin,
CE is the marking that shows its european conformant. I think the difference is mostly in terms of the no volt interlock switch. This means the KA style N50 bowl won't work with the CE models - too low.
