I removed the excess of grease to clear all parts. Then I installed new mechanical parts. Finally, I installed all electrical parts. I followed a logical sequence of removing and installing steps. Tip: Never remove parts without a logical order of sequence.

The mixer started getting weak like a gear was stripped and then quite working all together.

I removed the decorative band that covers the seam by removing 1 screw. I then removed the top portion of mixer by removing 4 square head screws. You will then see the gear housing in the front of the mixer. Remove the 4 screws holding that on. There are no spring that are going to pop out and you never know where they went, but be careful because there is a lot of grease and a gear that it just laying in there on the right side. You will see the stainless shaft with a couple on gear cogs on it. Remove the retaing spring from the shaft and pull the top gear off, it may be a little snug. You will then see the dowel pin, mine was sheared off but I could see where it was. Be sure to remove the broken pieces. Use the punch to knock out the remaining pin. Replace with new pin making sure it is evenly exposed on both side of the shaft. Replace the top gear, then the retaining spring, the the gear housing cover, then the mixer top cover and finally the decorative band. Be sure to unplug before you start. These mixers are expensive and expensive to have someone fix them. I ordered 2 pins because shipping is a little high and the pin is cheap. I fixed this for $17.00 total and have a spare pin.

Took the mixer apart so that the broken pieces of plastic would fall out. I needed a large philips srew driver -wasn't able to improvise. A friend (male) came over so between the 2 of us we took the machine apart and put it back together. The motor works fine, It was just the arm lever and everything is working perfectly now.

Mixer suddenly ceased operation after sharp noise

To access the interior of the mixer, I first removed the single screw holding the cup-shaped part at the rear. Then I removed the 4 large screws on the under surface of the mixer head. Next I removed the bright metal ring around the planetary gear area by prying it off. I then pried the dish-shaped part off the shaft using a large-bladed screwdriver. This exposed 5 screws on the circumference of the planetary gear. By removing them, one can pull up the gears and see into the area below. I found the worm gear had fractured. By removing 3 screws at the base I extracted it for closer inspection, checking for any loose pieces. Beware of the jelly-like grease. The replacement part goes into position, and one then follows the steps in reverse.

After stalling the mixer while mixing dough I found that the motor still functioned but the blade didn't move. I basically took the mixer into my shop along with a digital camera to record any complicated disassembly procedure I might have to deal with for reassembly and proceeded to disassemble the mixer. Once apart, I cleaned the mixer parts, removed the broken worm gear and bracket, and got online for someone that carried the replacement piece. PartSelect sent the replacement within 3 days and now it works great again.

I did not do the repair myself, however, I contacted a suggested service company which in turn was a company I had used before when I had problems with my JenAir microwave. Excellent service, prompt and very professional. Thank you JenAir for your assistance in providing promptly the parts needed to complete this job.
