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.
I rip everything apart and put new and grease it. works like a new one.
