First I removed the screws that hold the silver band and the top of the mixer (cover). I removed the cover. I then removed the 4 screws that hold the gear housing and removed the housing. I removed the worm gear and removed the bearings and the washer from the "old" worm gear and put them on the replacement worm gear. I took gear grease from the cracked housing and packed the replacement gear with this grease. I attached the gasket to the replacement housing. I placed the attachment gear into the replacement housing and placed the housing over the gear assembly. I then put the mixer back together and ran it for a few minutes to dispurse the gear grease. I just mixed up some bread dough and everything seems to be in working order. I have never done this before so I hope it will continue to function properly.

Gears Stripped on Stand Mixer

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Bought a KitchenAid Pro Series stand mixer from Sam's Club about five years ago. The transmission gears stripped. It is failry easy to replace but you need to replace the worm gear and the pinion at the same time. Make sure all the old grease is removed completely to ensure no old shavings reaming in the transmission housing. Also, if you have a fiberglass transmission housing, inspect the housing closely to indetify any hairline fractures and do not fill the transmission assembly with too much grease becasue you need room for the housing to breathe when the unit is in operation. If you fill the housing too much and tighten it, it "WILL" crack the housing. You want enough gree to keep the asssemnly lubricated but not too much that when you run the mixer that it expands and cracks the housing.

I read several stories online explaining that this was a problem with a speed sensor. In order to change the part I removed the motor cover (required removing 3 or 4 screws) and simply unplugged the old sensor from the speed control board and plugged the new one in. Took very little time and minimal effort. Mixer now runs like it did when it was new and cost much less than replacing the entire appliance.

I stripped two gears to the power take-off at the head of the mixer using the meat grinder attachment.

I investigated the problem by opening the mixer (four screws) and examining the gear box. Two gears were stripped. I ordered them, using the parts diagram provided. They arrives in about two days. I disassembled the gear box, cleaning out all grease and inspected for further damage. The gears and housing were completely cleaned with solvent. The transmission was then reassembled and regreased with food-grade grease. The mixer is now reassembled and working well. I was very pleased with the price and simplicity of my repair, versus taking it to a repair shop.

I removed the old screw with a hand tool to avoid injuring my hand. I then used my hand to install the new screw. Piece of cake. Ordering from Part Select was was a breeze. The only minor issue was the part cost $4.33 and shipping was $7.25.

I inherited an electric mixture from my mother-in-law after she died in 2004. The mixer must have been from the 70s. I guess I could buy a new one but I think of her each time I use it and it is almost like I keep a piece of her alive. The paint on the flat beater was chipping and instead of potentially poisoning my family I knew I needed to either replace the mixer or get a new Flat Beater. I had no idea, with the mixer being so old that a replacement part would even exist but it did! I purchased the replacement flat-beater and installed it in two seconds. Now I can use my mixer with immeasurable sentimental value and not pose any health risks to my family!

Erratic speed control

1. Removed the silver name band that encircles the mixer head by removing one philips screw at the rear of the head. 2. There are four philips head screws under the band. 3. Remove the four screws and lift the top half of the head from the machine. 4. Looking at the rear of the machine, the speed control is to the right (identify by the speed control knob. 5. Remove the two screws (philips) on each side of the speed control assembly. 6. Lift the speed control from the machine and let it hang by the connecting wires. 7. One at a time, remove the plugs that are connected to the speed control module and place then in the same location as the new part. 8. Set the old control aside. 9. Set the new controller in place and secure with the two philips screws removed during disassembly (note: do not over-tighten the screws as the tabs on the controller are plastic and can break if over-tightened). 10. Replace the cover and replace the four screws holding the cover in place and tighten securely. 11. Replace the beauty name place and tighten in place. This whole process took about 6 minutes from start to finish. The mixer now works like new.

Plastic gear housing breaking

  • Customer: Bret from Centennial CO
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 6 of 6 people found this instruction helpful
Very happy to find that the new gear housing was metal, not plastic. The whole problem was poor design of plastic to hold metal gears. Removed housing held down by four screws, removed two gears that were damaged. Retaining ring was difficult to remove from retaining slot. New gears replaced the old ones, new retaining ring put in place, new grease packed into all gearing, new stronger metal housing put in place and the Kitchenaid industrial mixer is better than new. Very happy with the parts I purchased.
