Exclamation Kinetico Mach Series Water Softener Keeps Draining and Regenerating

I have Kinetico Mach Series Overdrive Water Softener. The water softener keeps regenerating and draining. We opened the lined going into and out of the 2 blank tanks - didn't see anything stuck. We use water softner pellets from Lowes.

Any idea what the issue might be? The kinetico folks charge a fortune to come out and take a look.

I think the meter turbine gears are stripped keeping the meter disc in the same spot. If this is the case, the regen start pawl is in constant contact with the control disc starting a regen over and over. I have an exploded view of the parts but I am out of town and can not send them until Monday.
