hi

there is a ring clamp on top of the main worm follower gear on the drive shaft. you might not see it due to the grease.

you need to get one of those weird little pliers with points on them to spread the ring clamp to remove it. Then the gear is just friction fit on the shaft...it's pretty tight. I carefully used a screwdriver to slowly separate the main follower gear from the lower gear and it goes up the shaft....

after a bit you can wiggle the follower gear by hand and it will come up. Then you can see there is a pin holding the drive gear underneath it in place. The pin in my mixer was actually bent (must have been some tough dough).

then you reverse the process to put the gear back on -- except that the top follower gear has to go on the pin in the right orientation or the ring clamp won't fit.

buy your parts from mendingshed.com

hope it helps.

SOURCE: Kitchenaid stand mixer leaking oil

I called the 800 service number when mine did the same thing. They advised to:

1. Use the processor more frequently to avoid this in the future; and
2. To fun the motor on speed setting "10" for two minutes.

A harmless vegetable grease, normally solid, has separated due to infrequent use and leaked a bit ( a few tablespoons in my case). Running the motor on high speed causes it to re-solidify, they said. Wipe clean. Forget about it.

SOURCE: k45ss kitchenaid stand mixer, i took out the brushes

jrichards - I hate it when that happens! It seems that power is not getting to the armature from the brushes so I would suspect that one or both of the brushes is (are) not seated properly. Did you remove the brushes to replace them or were you just inspecting them? I'd suggest removing them again and making sure the contacts are facing in the right direction to contact the armature. The concave contact face should be resting completely on the armature. If you've turned it 90 degrees too much, it wont' seat properly. I hope this helps... Howard, Burke, VA

It could be very easy. It maybe you have a the brush in the wrong way round or they have simply run out. They are on the sides under the black plastic caps. Although they will fit in the hole any one of 4 ways round, there is a key on one corner which means it will only go in one direction. Use a torch to look into the hole before you put it back in.
They shoud look like this : brush

How to fix a Kitchenaid Professional HD Stand Mixer?


Remove the top cover, screws are under the metal trim band with the writing on it. Get a multi meter and follow the power. Where the power stops is a good place to start looking. I think the electric internals consist of a PCB complete and a motor complete. If the motor has a circuit and both field windings are even resistance then you are probably looking at a pcb replacement unless you are an electronics whizz. There may also be an interference suppressor across the mains power supply in some countries, unlikely that will stop it though. Certainly look for any unplugged or broken connections inside from mains cable to pcb.

I need a replacement motor on a KitchenAid Professional HD Stand Mixer (Model KG25H7XSL).


The loud pop was probably the soft start circuit board on the motor. You can buy this board at repair sites or Ebay. And yes, they make 220V versions of this mixer.

Sounds like the carbon brushes under the black side caps or failing that a broken wire.

Kitchenaid mixer makes a lot of noise. The beater


Hi - I've been searching for general info on KitchenAid stand mixers and ran across this so I'm throwing my $.02 in... Since KA stand mixer bases are essentially made of cast metal parts, there is a very slim chance that there is a lateral misalignment (side-side) unless it got dropped...eek! Sounds like a head height adjustment issue. Check out this from KitchenAid Conversations:

I can only imagine you have a shop display machine and they took the plug off. Otherwise it should be obvious.

Kitchenaid not working. Before it "died" it wouldn't turn off


When an appliance reaches the age that yours has it may be prudent to bite the bullet and purchase a new one. good luck
