    Stock servo? Sounds like you need a new one. Is it under warranty? If not time to upgrade

    If it keeps spinning, it is not mechanical... its electrical.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    So what you are saying is new gears AND resetting the Rx fixed it.
    Not just new gears.

    Gears only do what they are told to by the motor, which in turn is told what to do by the circuitry.
