Hi John, KE5GFJ

The small nylon gear on the end of the shaft has inside a friction
disc wich is probably wear out or  it is sliding because there is oil
or grease in between.

Dip the gear assembly into absolute alcohol or spry into it a dry
solvent for contac-cleaner.

I have experienced the same problem few years ago.
