CustomerLucy from El Dorado Hills CA

Kitchenaid stand mixer would get stuck (stripped gear)

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.

CustomerGary from Plano TX

Gears stripped on stand mixer

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.

CustomerThomas from Bluffton IN

Mixer was very noisy when running and made a horrible grinding sound

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.
