Unscrewed stainless steel Kitchenaid band, removed screws holding down the main housing to get to the speed control panel. Removed two screws from to release the speed control panel, replaced the panel with new part, and replaced all the screws to the main housing, and stainless steel band and it worked like new. So easy, and it only took about 15 minutes to repair.

I removed the decorative band that covers the seam by removing 1 screw. I then removed the top portion of mixer by removing 4 square head screws. You will then see the gear housing in the front of the mixer. Remove the 4 screws holding that on. There are no spring that are going to pop out and you never know where they went, but be careful because there is a lot of grease and a gear that it just laying in there on the right side. You will see the stainless shaft with a couple on gear cogs on it. Remove the retaing spring from the shaft and pull the top gear off, it may be a little snug. You will then see the dowel pin, mine was sheared off but I could see where it was. Be sure to remove the broken pieces. Use the punch to knock out the remaining pin. Replace with new pin making sure it is evenly exposed on both side of the shaft. Replace the top gear, then the retaining spring, the the gear housing cover, then the mixer top cover and finally the decorative band. Be sure to unplug before you start. These mixers are expensive and expensive to have someone fix them. I ordered 2 pins because shipping is a little high and the pin is cheap. I fixed this for $17.00 total and have a spare pin.

kitchen aide stand mixer - epicurian 6 quart model

  • Customer: andy from hanover PA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 3 of 3 people found this instruction helpful
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....

I first ahd to remove the original feet by removing screws that held them in place. The new feet that I purchased were different then the original. They were a push in type and not held in by screws. I had to modify the base by drilling the foot holder to accept the new style feet. Once this was done, the feet were installed and looked good.

The machine sounds and runs better than it ever did. The drawings from the website made this really easy. This will be my first choise for parts from now on.

  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 4 of 8 people found this instruction helpful
I removed the motor assembly from the mixer. This left the stand assembly. The raising lift arm had to be removed by unscrewing the set screw, and then the lift arm was removed. I replaced the plastic arm bowl lift by sliding it over the lift arm, and then I had to remove the spring with a clip washer with the pliers, and replaced the spring back on to the new part. Total time about ten minutes for the actual fix, and about 45 minutes remove and reinstall the 12 screws that held the motor in place. It was well worth my efforts. The mixer arm works perfectly now.

Researched the internet for a diagram of the mixer and used that to take it apart, clean everything, then install the new gear and new grease. Works great so far.

  • Customer: Gregory from Califon NJ
  • Difficulty: Really easy

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 2 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
This was easy once Igot all the parts. The mxer wouldn't mix and when I opened it up the drive gear between the motor and the planetary drive was missing some teeth. Turns out the bearing, which was sintered bronze, had broken so I needed a new gear, new bearing, and the jumping gear had broken the housing so I needed a new housing. The new gearing ( really a bushing since there are no rollers or balls in the "bearing") waws now steel and the molded plastic housing is now cast metal. Some new grease ( I had to buy a quart can of grease to get two tablespooons) a new gasket and put the screws in and we're back in business. Total repair time 10 minutes, total time to get all the parts 3 weeks,

My husband removed screws and took top off mixer. Then he took out the gears and cleaned them from all the grease. After he did that he could see the gears that were all worn. We went on line ordered the new gears and in a couple of days the parts were here and he put them back in and greased it all again and put the top and screws back in place. Mixer sounds much quieter. Thank you.
