First and foremost, I am not mechanical at all. I typically refer to parts as thing-a-ma-jigs, and whatca-ma-call-its. When it froze up and started to make a loud grinding noise, I guessed it was a gear problem. I decided to try to take it apart, What did I have to lose? If I couldn't figure it out, I would be down a mixer. I was already down one as it was. It was very easy to take apart and I could immediately see what gears needed to be replaced. Parts Select made it very easy to see what parts I needed. And delivery was lightning fast; the next day after it shipped! I found a PDF on line on how to dis-assemble and re-assemble the mixer. I got it together and it mixed for a few minutes and froze again. I took it apart and realized that I didn't have the whatcha-ma-call-it (worm gear) seated properly. Fixed it and put it back together and put it to the test. Working just fine now! Thank you Parts Select for making this very easy!
