This is the tightening screw that holds the attachments into the motor unit of the mixer. Found your web site and reordered 2 replacement pieces (in case one breaks!). Very EZ and user friendly. Thank you!

This was easy once Igot all the parts. The mxer wouldn't mix and when I opened it up the drive gear between the motor and the planetary drive was missing some teeth. Turns out the bearing, which was sintered bronze, had broken so I needed a new gear, new bearing, and the jumping gear had broken the housing so I needed a new housing. The new gearing ( really a bushing since there are no rollers or balls in the "bearing") waws now steel and the molded plastic housing is now cast metal. Some new grease ( I had to buy a quart can of grease to get two tablespooons) a new gasket and put the screws in and we're back in business. Total repair time 10 minutes, total time to get all the parts 3 weeks,

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---------

Removed the top housing.
Visual inspection revealed a cracked gear housing.
Removed the 4 screws to remove the housing.
Removed the gear retaining clip and inspected the gears and pin.
The housing was the only problem.
Noticed the plastic housing locating pins were missing and were stuck in the bottom aluminum housing pin receptacles. Carefully drilled out and cleaned debris.

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.

Taking apart the machine is really easy. I was worried the grease would have spilled all over the places, but when the machine is cool, the grease is solid, so no spill. Replace the parts is quite straightforward, and there are plenty of tutorials on line. The only tip is that the grease used by KitchenAid is dark, and it is not easy to see all the small parts when you take the gearbox apart, so pay attention at what you do and at what you throw away... when I got to put it back together I missed a special concave washer which must have been trapped in the grease. Other than that... it has been an easy repair, the mixer is back up and running and I saved a ton on $$$

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.
