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

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.

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

The part fit great! PS. I may need to buy a gasket to go around my refrigerator door. I have an Amana Model #THI1853W, Serial No. 9502301998. Do you have instructions on how to install this gasket?

Motor would not turn on

Initially removed carbon brushes then inserted the new carbon brushes. The motor still did not turn on. Then I removed the brushes again, used a flashlight to look in the hole where the carbon brushes are installed. I noticed that there was a square notch on one side of the hole. I then reinstalled the carbon brushes, ensuring that the beveled side of the carbon brush was installed so it lines up with the square notch. This allows the carbon brushes to touch the motor. I turned the unit on and it worked.

Fast speed on every setting. No control of speeds.

I removed the cover off the back of the mixer. Carefully remove the cardboard gasket around the outside edge. Unlock the nuts that hold the two adjusting screws. Count the turns to remove each screw in order to keep the right adjustment. Pull the plate away enough to remove the control board. There is one long and one short wire that gets plugged into each side of the plate. Watch the location of each wire to make the right connection. Reattach the screws to the proper position. Then install the gasket and rear cover. Check for proper operation.
