Question about KitchenAid K5SS Heavy Duty Commercial Stand Mixer
I recently found our Kitchenaid K5SS Mixer laying on its side with over a tablespoon of lubricating oil polled beside it. Is there a way of replacing this oil without total dismantle? Will the loss of this oil be harmful to the motor if not replaced? Thanks for any help!
Some of the oil has separated from the grease inside the transmission, the grease should be replaced. You don't need a total dismantle,. simply remove the top cover and the transmission housing. Remove as much old grease as you can, then replace it with grease from Kitchenaid Parts, or locate a Shell Oil distributor in your area, you want Shell Darina XL EP-2. The oil that came out of your unit probably won't be enough to do immediate damage, but because it's separating, it's becoming less effective. It'a messy job to remove it but will add years of life to your mixer. If you find this solution helpful, please rate it. Good luck. ricardok45
