The knob was attached to the new lever. I began to disassemble the mixer case so that I could replace the lever. However, it soon became apparent that this would be a major project involving many components and potential problems in getting the unit back together. Since all I wanted was to replace the knob, I simply knocked it off the new lever and forced it onto the old one. It is hard for me to understand why Kitchenaid would not make just the knob available.

Remove the mixer head from the base by removing the 4 Phillips head screws. Pry off the ring around the rotating part with a flat head screwdriver. Punch out the pin holding the rotating part and remove. Remove the trim strip by removing the two Phillips screws at the rear of the unit. Remove the 4 screws at the bottom of the mixer head. Carefully separate the bottom of the head from the top using a flat screw driver. There will be the power wires connecting the top to the bottom of the unit. It is best to disconnect these wires to avoid breaking them during rest of the procedure. There will be a lot of grease in the gear box of the mixer. The assembly holding the damaged worm gear can now be removed by removing the three screws holding it to the bottom of the mixer head. At this point I removed the grease from the worm gear assembly to allow better inspection. Punch out the pin holding the worm gear to its shaft and remove the shaft. The worm gear is now free and can be replaced. Add some extra grease to the new gear and reassemble the mixer in the reverse order.

I discovered the brushes were worn, and one side had broken off and lodged against the armature.I got lucky as I removed the brush caps and the sleeves the brushes fit into (simple job) and was able to hand turn the armature so the pieces fell down into the bottom of the mixer housing.After removing them, I replaced the brushes and the mixer runs like new. Thanks for the fast delivery AND more importantly, the right part. Steve
