This was my husband's first time to taking apart any mixer - much less a heavy duty KitchenAid. Since we could not find a local repairman, the only thing to do was try to repair it himself. Using your exploded view of the machine he found on the internet, he ordered a gasket which he felt would be needed to repair the mixer. When he tore the machine down, the problem was what he had suspected - original grease had liquified and the rest had turned black in color. He went to a local auto parts store and bought a can of wheel bearing grease. He cleaned out the old oil and repacked with about a half pound of the new grease. The most difficult part of the repair was inserting the roll pin to attach the ring gear housing to the output shaft. It was impossible for him to reinsert the original pin, so he bought a new tension pin with which he was able to work. The only part he has been unable to align is the lever to lock/unlock the machine. He managed to set it enough that it locks when the lever is pushed halfway. The machine works great but I would not advise a person without any mechanical ability to try to repair these mixers.

Once I looked at the schematic I was prtty sure what the problem was and what I needed to repair the problem. It was reltively easy to disassemble the mixer and immediately saw that I was correct in what was needed. I ordered the parts. They came through with no delay. It took almost as long to find all of the parts as it was to do the repair. In all it took about a half hour to repair, put it together and clean everything up. It works just like new.
This mixer was given to me 8-10 yrs ago with only 2 speeds (cant believe i waited this long to fix it). Repair went good, wasn't sure what i should replace so i replaced Control board, control plate, governor, grease in the gears and the transmission gasket. I first took any and ALL measurements for any screws on the control plate, this will help when you set your mixer speeds when its all back together. When installing the new governor i used a 10mm socket and a mallet to seat it all the way till it stops on the set pin. installed the new control board, with thermal grease on the back of the plate(very important). Didn't need to replace the grease in the gears, but i figured since i was in there id replace it. (No smells and all gears work) I used it to ground 5lbs of elk into burger (speed 4) after repairs and it worked great. Still have about 15lbs left to do and itll do it with out braking a sweat. Maybe i should open up a repair shop to fix these suckers...lol its that easy. What really helped with the repairs is the youtube video from Partselect. Second to none with a step by step on how to replace and repair just about anything on your mixer. Good deal, if i need to replace anything else i know where to go! Thanks
Looked at the mixer schematic form your website,which made it easy for me to take it apart. Once it was apart & all the grease removed I disassembled & cleaned all the drive parts. Saw what was warn, ordered the parts from you. Three days later received the parts, everything fit perfect. Added grease,assembled the mixer and it ran perfect, good for another 20 yrs. Thank you for making it so easy to repair an old mixer in just over two hours. Rolf
I rip everything apart and put new and grease it. works like a new one.
Simply removed damaged gears. Very simple to do. Ordered gears. Replaced gears. Both working well ( so far. ) Machines are easy to dismantle. Just be sure to put the screws back in the holes you took them out of when dismantling...no lost screws. On the smaller model, took pictures of the wire positions to be sure they were replaced in the proper order. Larger model had no wires to remove.
Removed old gear and grease and replaced gear and grease resembled
