The KitchenAid is "old school" in that it is held together with simple (but very stout) bolts and screws. I removed about 10 such fasteners, slipped off the gear retainer, and pulled it out. On Sunday, a very nice customer service rep helped me order the right part, but I did the rest on line in a matter of seconds. It shipped on Monday and arrived on Wednesday. Took about 10 minutes to put everything back. I REALLY WISH everything was this easy in 2012!!!

opened the mixer.. all screws in kitchaid are the same so not to worry... opened up and replaced the gears... and put it back together... diagram helped in that front and rear bearings of connecting gear are the same # on diagram it is easy to confuse when you put it back together, but the item number and description of each helped make sure it was in the right place. Otherwise... time to fix would have been less....

Removing the cover of the mixers "guts", it was immediate evident the a major gear had lost a few of its "teeth". Parts Select clearly offered the required part of this $300 mixer for a favorable price. I was fully impressed that it arrived within 4 days or my ordering the part. I simply exchanged the damaged gear and restored the mixer to service and I'm fully impressed with the Parts Select Company for their swift response to my needs.

Stripped worm gear and broken lower gear housing

  • Customer: Andrew from Odessa, FL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set, Wrench set

Worm gear strips usually after the lower gear housing breaks. Tore down cleaned grease and shrapnel out, replace stripped worm gear and lower housing. It's convenient that the lower housing plate comes assembled with new bushing and gear. This is now the third one of these expensive mixers I have repaired, word got out that I fix them, and this is a very common problem. Repairs have been for friends and Church, so I don't charge any labor, it's kind of fun, messy, but fun. Note to Kitchen Aid: Please strengthen lower gear case.

removed the cover, separated the gear casing, cleaned the gears, replaced the thrust bearing kit and worm gear, greased all and reassembled. Wish I would have known to order the grease, it would have saved a couple bucks in shipping.

First of all, go to the web site and download the schematics of the model #. It will show all the parts and part #s. Secondly watch a u tube video of the actual strip down process of the professional 600 series stand mixer. With this knowledge, do one of two processes 1: strip down the machine, remove the gears and check for defects- order parts. Or 2: replace all the parts( little money) and have a totally refurbished , smooth running mixer. I kept the good used gears for spares. I replaced 90 % of the internals ( including motor) and have a smooth running machine. I initially burned out the mother 2 months after initial purchase, sent it back under warentee, and received it back . Wen I stripped it down 10 years later, there was very little grease in the gear housing. This is what probable ruined the gears. Use plenty of grease in the housing and gears. The grease is one of the most expensive items, but you can't find it anywhere, so order it, along with everything else, from Parts Select.

The mixer sounded like the gearbox was full of gravel.

The transmission housing was cracked and one of the bearings was broken. I replaced both of them, but the mixer really didn't sound any better. So I replaced the gears in the transmission, and while that was better it still wasn't correct. I am going to replace the other bearing and the planetary shaft and see it that aligns everything a bit better. I believe the problem is the way the gear on the end of the motor shaft is working with the worm gear, the bearings are not keeping the correct spacing. Hopefully, the new one in the rear will fix the problem.
