First i went to the Kitchen Aid web site and found a video on how to take a part the mixer. Followed the instructions from the video and it was very easy. The grease in the machine was black so i cleaned it out of the transmission and repack it with hi-heat wheel bearing grease that i got from a auto parts store it took about a 1/2 lb. then put the gasket in and back together and put the o-ring on. Have run for awhile and it is ok. Want to say that these are very well built machine.

Open the package with the new screw and it looked like the screw was wider. I tried it to see if it goes in and as long as you screw it straight in, there was no problem.

Lost a rubber foot on my Kitchen Aid mixer. The remaining feet we're hard and mushroomed. I decided to replace all 5. That was the correct decision.

I griped each foot with a pliers and twisted it out of its setting. I then set a new foot in place and hammered it into place with a small hammer. The feet fit snugly and did not need to be glued. Job was easy and mixer sits like new. I was glad I spent the money to replace all of the feet at once.

Took the mixer down to the gear box. Found the plastic drive gear had a few stripped teeth. Did a search on the internet for the mixer gear. Found a couple of suppliers. Ordered the needed gear, pin and a bearing block just in case it was worn. The bearing block did not need to be replaced. Cleaned the broken off teeth from the gear grease and put the mixer back together. All worked fine when I plugged it in.

Mixer would stop spinning.

I found a video on how to repair mixer that would not turn. Watched video several times and replaced worn worm gear. Getting the old worm gear was the most difficult part of the job. I had to go purchase a pin punch ($5.50) with the correct tool is was easy.

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.

Easy removal of old screw cap, but new one didn't just drop in. Had to scrape paint and a little aluminum to make it fit. Finally did, and it works fine now.

Mixer jammed, then would not mix, motor ran

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.

The speed control lever was bent and broken from a fall

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.
