This is Cindy, the person who ordered the part for Nancy. She was absolutely thrilled that she got it the very next day! She thought I had paid extra for overnight delivery! She is so pleased she doesn't have to listen to the noise the other wire whip was making when turned on. Cindy

Unscrew and dismounted the mixer, gather all pieces and screws, cleaned and washed every part, took away the old grease and replaced it with a new one, also looked carefully for the lost teeth and found them, Put grease in every part, put back and screwed all the pieces of the mixer, then tried the mixer which worked really well.

Wish that I had known about the video before disassembling. I did not know if it needed a part or was just jammed. It was clear that i needed a worm gear. So I ordered that. It turned out that I needed the Pinion Shaft w/ gear too. So another order. The shipping far exceeded the cost of the parts. NOTE: Clear off as much grease as necessary to be certain that there are no stripped gears anywhere, the order the parts. I took the mixer head off of the stand. I would suggest that you take a bath towel, roll each end towards the center, and place the mixed head so that it is supported on both sides by the towel rolls. NOTE2: Shipping was great 2 days or less. One part arrived on a Saturday. P>S> I do not know the age of this mixer. The age drop down menu should have an UNKNOW option.

Per a video on this site, I removed the stand part, then removed the rear electrical cover and aluminum band which wraps around the mixer. Next, remove the drip ring and planetary gear (use a punch). Then remove the 4 screws securing the bottom housing and the 5 screws around the planetary gear housing. You should be able to pull the upper and bottom housings apart now. This exposes the control lever. Just unscrew it and replace it. Re-install all parts in reverse order.

I followed the video that was with the worm gear pausing at each step until I completed each step. The only different I did was to replace the grease in the gears and housing of my mixer. I figured with the gear busted, it was going to leave broken teeth in the grease. As I removed the grease I did find a couple of worm gear teeth. Thanks, Parts Select for the parts and video. You save me lots of $$$$.

It took longer to remove from the box, Less than 10 seconds to install, push on shaft and quarter turn, that's it simple, now back to making homemade Marsh mellow covered in chocolate. New whip is sturdy and strong.

The issue ended up being this little plastic clip. The repair took me about 20 mins alone to make. However, I realized how dirty the mixer was and spent another 30 - 40 mins detailing it.
