Clunking sound in head of KA 600 Professional Mixer

I've got a 6 month old Kitchen Aid 600 Professional Mixer. Purchased it on eBay, brand new, factory sealed. Was assured at the time of purchase warranty was good. KA will not honor warranty because seller was not an "authorized dealer".

I digress--When mixing, the mixer lets out a loud CLUNK when the beater passes the same spot each time... whirrr...CLUNK...whirrr...CLUNK. I'd appreciate any input as we'll be fixing this ourselves, I'm certainly not planning to pay KA's price to repair.

@kathyp sounds like your mixer is having issues somewhere in the gear case. Right now it is hard to pin down. Use these guides KitchenAid Professional 600 Repair to take a look and see if you can narrow it down. Post lots of pictures on what you find with your question so we can see what you see. Use this guide Adding images to an existing question for that.
