The insides of the servo have a 4 or 5 gears reduction drive. A heavy impact that overwhelms the servo saver can strip the teeth off one of the gears especially if your using the RTR servos since they have plastic gears.

The gears can be replaced but honestly if your still using the RTR servo, dump it and replace it with a good metal geared servo with at least 120oz of torque.
