after numerous calls to kitchen aide and ka repair centers - i decided that their remedy was to sell me a new or refurbished model -- so i decided to try the repair myself - why not - the appliance didn't function and their fix again was close to the price of a new one --- the fix - remove the band (small screw in back --- 4 screws hold on the top of the mixer - remove them and pull off the top -- the gears are at the front -- four screws hold the top in place- remove them and pull off the cover -- this is where it gets interesting - it's a little messy with the grease -- but clean out as much as possible --
the toughest part is then removing the retaining clip --- (a tool is avail at numerous hardware stores that will make it a bit easier about $20. ) but pry the clip up and slide off top -- remove gear - clean out completely - remove all old grindings -- replace gears -- add grease and reverse order... great fix -- even with purchase of pliers it was cheaper than any offer from kitchen aide....
