removed the screws holding the mixer housing and then removed the worn worm gear by removing the roll pin holding it on the shaft. Replaced the worm gear and inserted the pin that hole it in place. Replaced some of the gear grease and reassembled mixer. Went very easily. No problems at all.

Your website was the only one that made sense. I am blind and follow the instructions with a screen reader. I had no difficulty. It was much easier than this questionaire.

and I thought replacing the hinge pin would fix it, I used an awl to push out the old pin then used the new pin to push the old one all the way out. That did not fix the problem. Went to a store to look over a new one and saw that the screw under the head at the hinge point on the new machines was not screwed in tight. Turns out that screw is the "bumper" for the head against the neck, so the head is held back by the screw. FIXED

Repair was easy. Remove the seal ring with a flat blade screwdriver and drive out retaining pin. Pry out lower unit using two screwdrivers, one on each side. Once apart, use spring clip pliers to remove snap ring. Pull out shaft and replace. Clean and lubricate as you reassemble in reverse. Google the model number to get detailed instructions.

worn teflon worm gear

  • Customer: Frank from Bethlehem PA
  • Difficulty: Really easy

it was a kitchen aid dough mixer, had to take the top portion off and replace the assembly with a new one that holds the teflon gear. You can purchace the gear only and it becomes less expensive, but at the time I didn't take the chance cause the greese was there and didn't want to take a chance. Its a simple repair by removing some cotter pins and phillips head screws.

Corroded speed control plate ( full of flour). Had used the mixer for grinding deer meat and lost the slow speed. Flour would fly up in my wife's face.

I just thought there had to be a way to replace a component to correct the speed problem. I've never worked on a mixer before, so I thought it would be a challenge. Actually the repair was fairly easy. Make sure the unit is unplugged from AC. I removed the back motor cover with one screw and removed the end seal. I compared the parts on the mixer with the diagram provided at the Part Select website. I then ordered the parts. When the parts arrived 3 days later, I removed the Speed Control Plate ( 3 screws) and Phase Control Bd (1 screw) as one Assy. Removed the old Governor and slipped on the new one. Assy the new Speed Control Plate and Phase Control Bd comparing wiring and screwed them back to the unit. Removed the two motor bushes by unscrewing the side black motor brush holders and inserting the new brushes. I tried powering motor and nothing happened. I thought, great, now what did I do? I found out that you must make sure the brushes actually touch the armature otherwise the motor doesn't run. The gears are worn from grinding to much deer meat and my wife says no more. I've ordered new gears and looks like that job, too, will be easy to repair. Adding these parts is alot cheaper than buying a new unit and it will run like new. Not bad for over 10 years of usage.

Nothing would happen when we turned it on...

  • Customer: Ashley from Dayton OH
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

The brushes on the inside of the motor were destroyed. We thought that it would be easier to just replace the brush holder and the brushes, however, the brushes were easy! and QUICK! The brush holders...not so much. We had lots of problems getting the brush holders into place because of a metal piece that had to fit perfectly on top of the brush holder. It made it easier when I held the mixer upside down (we dissembled it) and my husband did his magic on fixing the brush holders. Pray that you won't need to replace the brush holders because it was NO FUN...but the brushes were QUICK AND EASY :)

I was very happy with the customer services department and the support I received in identifying the part I needed for the repair. I received an email confirming my order with all details. I do wish you had a more cost effective shipping alternative, like Priority mail.
The repair went well and the mixer is back in business, for making those Chocolate Chip Cookie and brownies if you know what I mean.

Thank you
Ron Ashby
