Worm gear had stripped so changed out several gears and parts
Opened the gear housing and removed all gears. Cleaned out all grease. Biggest issue was getting the retaining ring; very tight. Gears were difficult to pull easily. In replacing gears they did not sit easily and took a little rubber hammer to re position worm and upper gear. Be sure to have the right grease for food devices and don’t under grease. And have patience of which I have a short supply.

I stripped a couple of gears due with a batch of very hard dough
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 $$$

bevel gear, bearings and housing replacement
The parts I received from PartSelect were higher quality than the original parts. The bevel gear and housing were originally plastic. The new ones are solid metal. The machine sounds and runs better than it ever did. The drawings from the website made this really easy. This will be my first choise for parts from now on.
