removed top casing, removed old switch and sensor,and replaced with new ones. It was just a matter of a half dozen screws and unpluging 4 or 5 wires and then reversing the process. Couldn't be easier. thank you

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.

2 mixers, one wouldn't run at all, the other would start but at about 3/4 turn of the beeter the whole process would stop. If the beeter was manually moved forward, it would resume the remainder of the cycle until it again reached the 3/4 point.

The appliances belong to my neighbor who had no papers/manuals so I was on my own to figure out how to even get the machine apart and to find the correct nomenclature for the parts I needed. The PartSelect diagrams on the web site told me everything I needed to know. The key to the dis-assembly was the band around the center of the machine. After I discovered that, the band came off easily followed by splitting of the casing. One the first machine it appeared that the circuit board/switch assembly was in bad shape looking like it had been over heated at one time. As a test, I took the electric component out of the machine that would run and put it on the dead mixer. Beauty, it worked. OK so much for the easy one. On the machine that would only turn part way, I split the transmission housing by removing four small bolts and found that the worm gear was partially stripped. So, I ordered a new gear, switch assembly and transmission gasket since the old one was torn during my dis-assembly process. I don't have any snap ring pliers, so the snap ring(retaining ring) was taken off using a large screw driver and a a pair of slip joint pliers. Worked well, but I was afraid that the old retaining ring may have been damaged, so I ordered a new one. Good idea, since I broke the old one trying to put it back on. When all of the parts were installed, I filled the voids with heavy grease and put it all back together. Both mixers now work perfectly which saved the owners several hundred dollars. They had planned on replacing them both for use at their restaurant. I am now a fan of PartSelect because of the ease at which I, a novice had been able to find and get the correct parts, and the speed at which they arrived. I am also very impressed with the Kitchen Aid mixers because it appears the they are very well made, and are easily repaired if they do break. I was surprised to find a small appliance that is repairable. Many are now just throw away quality. I am a hero to my neighbors (they don't know how easy this was) and will keep the refrigerator magnet that was included with my parts order, for future repairs.

Simply placed it in the slot and pounded until firmly in with a soft mallet. Thanks to your site I was able to find the piece easily and very inexpensively. Thank you so much. I would die if I couldn't fix this machine.

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.

Mixer stopped working and gave grinding sounds

  • Customer: brian from carlsbad CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Following Replacement Part Youtube instructions, I disassembled the mixer and found what caused the sounds and prevented the mixer from operating. The worm follower gear had been ground down by the worm gear. I found that the shaft from the planetary gear had not been adequately greased and siezed preventing the worm follower gear from turning. The worm gear is obviously made of harder material and thus, was able to wear away the follower. I appreciate the your help which saved having to replace a perfectly good/expensive mixer. Thanks.
