I just talked with Blendtec about this issue, since I had the same problem. I asked if there was a stronger drive shaft since my previous Kitchen Champ model had a different, sturdier drive shaft that lasted about ten years.
The company representative explained that the new drive shaft is designed to break, but that's to save the motor. If the stress on the drive shaft could damage or cause excessive wear to the motor, the drive shaft breaks instead.
She also recommended using just enough flour so that the bread dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl. The reason most drive shafts experience too much stress is due to too much flour in the recipe.
To replace the drive shaft, go to http://www.blendtec.com/Parts.aspx or call Blendtec at 1-800-Blendtec
The only part that will work for the Kitchen Champ is the Drive Shaft (Champ). Apparently, the German drive shaft -- which looks like the one from my old Kitchen Champ -- is not interchangeable.
Since this is my second Kitchen Champ and my previous one lasted over ten years, I'm delighted to understand what went wrong. I'm hopeful that using less flour will prevent another problem. And, I'm very pleased with how helpful Blendtec was, explaining this to me.

They give only one year warranty. But these devices are not so complicated.
Have the right handy guy a look at it. You know anybody on the block?
Else you have to go to a repair shop. Diagnozing her from here is undo-able.
And still not fixed over there. I think it is a small thing.

It sounds like it got overloaded when you last mixed dough. It will only come off the way it went on. If it has been bent on, it may need a bit of gentle encouragement.
