The old broken shaft sleeve did not want to come off. Had to cut it off with a Dremel. Once the old plastic shaft sleeve was off, the new shaft sleeve went on fairly easily. I believe that the shaft sleeve should be made out of aluminum rather than plastic. If that were the case it never would have broken the way the old one did.

My wife made a lot of salsa with tomatoes. The tomato juice ran down the shaft and rusted it to the point that it froze up in the oil-lite brash bearing. I could not get the old shaft sleeve off without cutting it with a dermal tool. Next, I pried out the three plastic screw cover on the base of the machine and loosened the three screws that hold the motor assembly to the plastic base. I also removed the bottom of the plastic housing. Since the shaft was frozen in place with rust, I put some light oil around the shaft and let it soak for an hour. Then I got a block of wood and placed it on the top end of the shaft and gently hit it with the hammer several times until the shaft exited the brass bearing. Next I took some emery cloth and cleaned the rust from the shaft. I got some bearing grease and lubed the shaft and reassembled the unit. I put plenty of grease on the area where the shaft exits the base to prevent any future juices running down the shaft. Finally, I pressed on the shaft sleeve and assembled the top processing plastic bowl and lid and powered it up and it worked. This KitchenAide machine was so well built compared to current available models of any brand that I could not see tossing it out. It had to be fixed and I did it. Could not have done it without the availability of parts through this site.
