it sounds like you may have a sheared key on one of the shafts.with no product in the mixer will it run in any other speeds?when mixing pizza dough you should only use 1st gear.if it does run in other speeds you have a sheared key or broken shaft,if it doesnt run in any speeds drop the planetary and check the key on that shaft.

Hi. Stop using your mixer. If your mixer is still covered by warranty, call Kitchenaid Customer Service, they are very good with warranty repairs.
If your mixer is out of warranty, remove the silver band that surrounds the top of mixer. Remove the top cover. At the front of the mixer, locate the transmission housing which is now exposed. Examine this housing carefully for cracks. If you find cracks anywhere in this housing, you have found the under-engineered plastic transmission housing. Kitchenaid's replacement housing is made of metal. Your plastic housing has no business being in a mixer that is marketed as being able to mix bread dough. It cannot!
If you're confident that you can make the repairs yourself, go to the Kitchenaid website and download the parts drawings. Remove the Trans. housing, remove the worm gear shaft assembly which is driven by the motor.. Remove and save as much grease as necessary to thoroughly inspect the worm gear. Inspect the worm shaft bearings. Look for cracks, or missing pieces on the bearings. Look for crunched cogs on all gears. Be prepared to wait at least a month for your parts to arrive after you order them. The replacement grease should be Shell Darina 2, or Chevron FM ALC EP 2.
If you're not confident about repairing this yourself, call Kitchenaid and determine the nearest "approved" repair shop.
You may be able to pressure Kitchenaid to pay for the damaged parts in your mixer. They are still installing these plastic Trans. housing on new mixers. Insist on a metal cover when replacing. Apparently, Kitchenaid feels no shame in their manufacturing process, and will not issue a recall notice for these housings. They are substandard at best.
If you found this solution helpful, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45.

The Hobart/Kitchenaid model 4C Stand Mixer was produced between 1961 and 1977.
This unit is now a vintage piece chased by collector. Parts dealers do not sell parts anymore for such an old model.
The parts must be purchased on the second hand and vintage market, best source is Ebay. Put 4c mixer or kitchenaid 4c to find parts.
The bowl is easy to find, it is part 4162158, regular retail price for replacement is $44. buy the glass one on Ebay, that will be the original one mounted on first models.
Here Ebay list.
Vintage KitchenAid 4c Glass Mixing Bowl Excel Cond!
VINTAGE KITCHENAID 4C MIXER WIRE WHISK ONLY
KitchenAid Mixer md 4C Complete with Bowl White
KITCHENAID MIXER 4.5QT S.S. BOWL FTIS MODEL 4C 4162158
Here also a forum where you can contact more Kitchenaid vintage appliances owners or collectors.
The dough tool is not even easy to find on Ebay. Try contacting Kitchenaid and see if they can give you a compatible part.
If they have the original one (unlikely) , then do not be surprised if part price is over $30.
If you find a 4c with tools for spares on Ebay , buy it, and resell the parts you do not need. The whole mixer with bowl and one tool is worth over $50.
The original owners manual can also be purchased from Kitchenaid/hobart
