The mixer would not raise the bowl

  • Customer: Stephen from Charlotte, NC
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 7 of 11 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.

At the back of mixer is 1 screw that holds metal band. Remove to reveal 4 screws that hold top half of mixer. Inside locate transmission housing remove 4 more screws. Inside housing carefully scrape away grease and broken bits of gear. Take out worm gear drive shaft wipe off and inspect. Clean up grease inside tranny locate keeper ring on vertical shaft spread and slide off use 2 screwdrivers to jimmy gears up. Replace with new parts put back together and use fresh grease. Not too hard at all and alot cheaper than a new kitchen-aid.

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.

I carefully removed the cover of my mixer. I first made sure that all of my part numbers corresponded, then I labeled the 5 wires that needed to be disconnected. I then disconnected the wires, removed the two screws holding the part in place, switched out the old for new, reconnected all of my wires. Mades sure everything looked tight, and put my cover back on. Works like a charm. I cried because what I really thought was going to be a $200+ fix, ended up costing me less than $50! And it was so easy.

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.
