Cracked gear housing, Broken Bearing and a couple things I didn't expect.

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.

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.

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.

so easy to remove the switch. I first marked the wires, 1-2-3-4 and then removed them from the old switch. removed the old switch and replaced with the new one and plugged in the wires as per markings. tried it out before replacing the top and it works perfectly. no longer timid about effecting repairs on my own. the diagrams on the website were a great help. this is a great company to do business with. part was here in 3 days.

I replaced the speed control board, however that did not correct the problem. I received the part very quickly and the install was easy but obviously it did not correct the problem so I will be returning the part. Hopefully that will go well also.
