This part fixes the following symptoms:
1, Removed trim piece (1 screw) 2, removed cover (4 screws) 3, removed speed switch assembly (2 screws) 4, removed gear cover (4 screws) 5, removed and examined 2 worm gears for wear. Gear cover was badly cracked, don"t know if it was caused by a previous repair or by heat, as old cover is plastic. Received new parts and installed them, 2 bearings, 2 worm gears, 1 new cover of diecast metal and a new gasket. All repairs made with a #2 phillips screw driver. My wife then made bread, and it preformed flawlessly.

Bought a KitchenAid Pro Series stand mixer from Sam's Club about five years ago. The transmission gears stripped. It is failry easy to replace but you need to replace the worm gear and the pinion at the same time. Make sure all the old grease is removed completely to ensure no old shavings reaming in the transmission housing. Also, if you have a fiberglass transmission housing, inspect the housing closely to indetify any hairline fractures and do not fill the transmission assembly with too much grease becasue you need room for the housing to breathe when the unit is in operation. If you fill the housing too much and tighten it, it "WILL" crack the housing. You want enough gree to keep the asssemnly lubricated but not too much that when you run the mixer that it expands and cracks the housing.
First I removed the screws that hold the silver band and the top of the mixer (cover). I removed the cover. I then removed the 4 screws that hold the gear housing and removed the housing. I removed the worm gear and removed the bearings and the washer from the "old" worm gear and put them on the replacement worm gear. I took gear grease from the cracked housing and packed the replacement gear with this grease. I attached the gasket to the replacement housing. I placed the attachment gear into the replacement housing and placed the housing over the gear assembly. I then put the mixer back together and ran it for a few minutes to dispurse the gear grease. I just mixed up some bread dough and everything seems to be in working order. I have never done this before so I hope it will continue to function properly.
the hardest part is removing the retaining ring (didn't buy pliers)after that it is very easy, remove ring, top gear, center pin, bottom gear,worm gear(was removed first)the grease is pretty nasty,clean off the old grease and put it all back the way it came apart,with new grease.And then PRAY !!!!!!! THANK YOU PARTS SELECT for your wonder smart staff.
Removed mixer motor housing by removing 5 obvious screws.Removed plastic transmission cover by removing 4 obvious screws.Down load parts exploded drawing from PartSelect.comFound the worn part by the shiny teeth on the large gear.Found the large worm gear on the drawing and ordered the gear, and associated bearings. Did not need the seal.Removed worn part, assembled new gear and beargings in same manner as the worn part, and placed new part in mixer. Replaced transmission cover gasket.Repacked grease from transmission cover onto the new gear.Replaced transmission cover (4 screws).Replaced mixer motor housing (4 screws).Replaced mixer trim band around the motor houseing joing. (1 screw).Plugged it and and it works, good as new.
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.
Took the mixer apart many times. Grease all over the place. put new gears in still noisy. The worm gear must have been cut wrong. The noise still there. The part select sent out a new worm gear. I did not put it in yet. I put the old worm gear in and the noise stopped even though it shows wear. Have not decided whether I will put it in yet.I would also like to add that the people that I talked to at the this site were very very helpful and great just great---------
My husband removed screws and took top off mixer. Then he took out the gears and cleaned them from all the grease. After he did that he could see the gears that were all worn. We went on line ordered the new gears and in a couple of days the parts were here and he put them back in and greased it all again and put the top and screws back in place. Mixer sounds much quieter. Thank you.
Remove covers, open gear box, remove lock ring and gears to deterime which gears were bad. Remove old grease, install new gears and pack with new grease.
inspected and replaced worn components
took it apart. more grease all over. Put in all but one gear on the top. The noise is still there going to try to but the old bearings in and try again. I went back to the old worm gear and allmost all the noise stopped. I did put the new bearings in and the other gears. It seems that the gear on the worm gear was cut wrong. The noise was tear able. I tried the different parts I ordered one at a time. To find out which one stopped the noise. Every time I took a part I had grease all over. It took so long every time I put in a new part to put the trans back together again. I had grease all over.
remov5 screws then snap ring thenn 4 screws then reploace with new parts and put back together
Disassambled the gear-train.Removed all broken pieces and grease from gear case. Cleaned gear case and all parts. Reassembled gear-train with new parts and packed all with suitable quantity of new grease. Test run with variable speeds assuming working smoothly.
