Put an ohmmeter across the two pins on the plug, on the mixer,,not the earth one.and turn the switch on.you should get a reading,plus it will change as you turn the switch to different settings.if no reading,suspect broken wire in plug,or mixer windings burnt out.try in a different socket

Kitchenaid 600 pro


After many years dealing with Kitchen Aid mixers I purchased a pro 600 for my wife as an early Xmas gift. After just a few usages it started making a clunking noise in the gear housing. I removed the housing and discovered the casting is of very poor tolerances and the main drive assembly was lifting from the torque of the motor and causing the gear assembly to lift out of the casting and skipping on the worm gear. I am sure it is going to happen to many more of these units as the casting area that holds the bearing in is to large obviously an overdue mold in the casting process. Time for a recall Kitchen Aid.

Leaking fluid, oil I think around the kitchen aid ring


Bucksmom, Sorry to hear you mixer is 'leaking'... I hate it when that happens. You don't mention how old or what model your KA mixer is? I assume you mean the band around your mixer with the Kitchenaid logo, when you say 'kitchen aid ring.
Your mixer does have an internal gear mechanism (transmission if you will) which converts the electric motors rotation into the mixer rotation and those gears are located within the mixer. The gears were lubricated at the factory, but depending on the age of your mixer and how it is used, it is possible that the grease has leaked beyond the gasket and that is what you are seeing now.
It is possible to disassemble the mixer to determine where the grease is coming from and troubleshoot if anything else might be wrong within the transmission.
Hopefully the leakage is not getting into your food being mixed. Kitchenaid Grease should be 'food grade' grease, but you still don't want to ingest it.
I hope this helps... Howard, Burke, VA

take off the chrome ring around the rotator. remove the screws that were hiding under it. pull off the rotator and replace the "O" ring on the shaft.
