Question:

I turned my mixer over to check the model number and some fluid came out. Do i need to replace it immediately?

Rachael for model number KV24GOXER
Answer:

Hi Rachael, Thank you for your inquiry. No you do not need to replace your mixer. The fluid coming out of your appliance is simply the grease from inside of the mixer that helps keep all the gears lubricated on the inside. If the appliance is used very heavily, or sits for long periods of time without use, the grease separates into a finer oil and will leak out of the mixer. It sounds like you may just need to take off the main housing of your mixer, clean off the old grease and then add some new grease to inside of your mixer. Good luck with your repair!

Mixer only had 2 speeds with the smell of electrical burning.

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

The front gear was worn

I took all the grease out of the top of the mixer. Saw that the gear was worn. When the new parts came I put as much grease in as was in before. Put it back together and it worked like a champ.
