Researched the internet for a diagram of the mixer and used that to take it apart, clean everything, then install the new gear and new grease. Works great so far.

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.

followed directions given, removed all the old grease .did a short test run , then replaced with new grease. the reason the gear was striped was my fault mixing too much bread at one time. we have a coffee house and use the mixer every day.

I have replaced so much on this mixer I can take it apart in my sleep. # speed controllers and now 2 gears. just wish we still had the 40 year old mixer we had, never half as many problems. New are not made like the old.

I am VERY impressed With this site . I am very disappointed with Kitchenaid. I paid more for this mixer than I paid for my first car especially when you ad in the attachments. I was mixing dough when I saw what looked like Small metal shavings in the dough... Then I heard a clacking sound so I turned off the machine and cussed...I got the screw driver and took off the top and was really surprised that on a machine that retails for over $550.00 dollars that the gear housing is PLASTIC...And this one had a crack down the side... So I took my trusty Phillips #2 and removed the housing to see that the front Bearing was broken as well so I got on line to kitchenaid and they are determined to continue the process of Shafting you and I with the prices of thier made to fail (Quickly) parts and lubricants.. Thank God for PartSelect. I got a better housing for half the money as well as a Bearing. Now I wish this were the end but remember I said that there was metal shavings in my dough? Well since I was going to have to replace the lube anyway I took apart the planetary gear as well and found that it had been shaving metal from the underside of the upper main housing .. After cleaning I checked and the lower bushing wasn't seated so it had been doing this since I bought it and I didn't know.. So I got a C Clamp and pressed it to where the thing should have been to begin with. If you are going to be working on the thing I suggest you tear it down completely and clean It thoroughly and inspect EVERYTHING closely... I have been eating metal shavings for who knows how long...

Unscrew the top and remove it , 4 more screws to remove the top of gear box , wipe out the old grease , lift the gears , but to remove the center gear you need a special narrow tip plier to remove the snap ring . Changed the center gear , apply new food grade grease and with reverse order putting back all remaining parts . Worked fine .

The insertion part of the foot was tapered to fit in the hole in the mixer. Simple pressure was not the answer. So I used a small key, placed it on the bottom of the foot, after applying a little vegetable oil on the foot, and tapped it into place. Worked well.Joe

I ordered the switch control. Opened up the top part of the mixer using a Philips screwdriver. Then I unscrewed all the screws that connected the old part. Disconnected the wires, connected them to the new panel , screwed everything back together and i was done. It was that easy.
