What do you call the planetary gear? The planetary hub is held on by a pin thru the shaft that is driven out with a hammer and punch. The small gear in the hub is held on by a circlip on the top side of the beater shaft. The main planetary gives very little trouble and is a press fit in the lower gear case.

Motor works but won't mix when the bowl has ingredients in it.


It sounds like the fuse gear has failed, you need to remove the planetary and the stand. Then split the gear cases by undoing all the screws going up through the bottom of the case, 9x from memory.

Tap drip ring off, punch out pin through planetary. Remove back cover, unclip black wire and white wire from rear control board. Tip it upside down, remove pedestal. Undo 5 screws around where planetary came from, undo the remaining 4 screws on underside of gear case, pull the cases apart.

Help! Groove pin won't come out of the planetary shaft after repeated hammering.


Get the mixer onto its side, use the correct size punch and a bigger hammer. The last thing you want to be doing is drilling the pin out. If you cannot get the pin out it will not render the machine useless, it just means that the job is beyond your capabilities and you need to get someone with experience to do it for you.

Kitchenaid mixer leaking oil


Get a copy of the Repair Part List for your model at Kitchenaid.com
Grease inside the Planetary Assembly (the shaft is tight fit to the Planetary
plate at the factory and is not designed to be taken apart, so do not use
any hard object such as a screwdriver to separate them) over times can
turn to liquid and leak down the bowl. Removing the Planetary assembly
and adding Kitchenaid Food Grade Grease is not a task for a novice.
To properly remove the Planetary Assembly, you must work from inside
the Transmission Housing: Remove in this order: Retaining Clip(25), Bevel Gear(21),
Retaining Pin(18), Worm Follower Gear(19). Use a soft mallet to tap out the Shaft
of the Planetary Assembly(15). Re-assemble it in the reverse order.
Note: The Bevel Gear is extremely tightly fit on the shaft, and a pin punch
must be used to remove from the shaft.

Which part do i need to replace?It seems like I put too much flour.in the bowl.then the mixer started to work very slow.I havea kitchenaid mixer made by Hobart Corp. model k5ss max watts 300 hz 60...


Hello Jovana,

First thing you are going to have to do is take the planetary off and check the key and the gears in the planetary. The parts that you may need to replace are endless as we do not know what may be broke in the unit. More than likely it will be in the planetary of the unit if you get it off and do not find anything post back to this thread and I will get you started on the next step.

Thank you for choosing FixYa

How do you take apart the KitchenAid Mixer K5SS to get at the gears? The motor runs but the beater doesn't go around. I have an exploded view, but it isn't clear how to begin disassembling the planetary.


It quick terms, first remove the head. Take off the band, this is where the two halves join. Undo any screws holding the halves together. Remove the pin holding the planetary in place. Remove the trim disc. The planetary assembly lifts out but you may need to work around it carefully lifting it a little at a time.
