Question about Kenmore KSM100 Stand Mixer
While moving, my mixer was stored upside down in the box and some oil leaked out. I would like to replace the oil but I don't know where to add the oil
This kind of unit are lubricated with grase paste. If the unit stays
inactive for a long time, or if the motor and gears are overheating the
grease paste gets melted into thin oil, and that will cause the leak.
The oil leak is usually coming from the gear box inside the appliance.
To fix the problem the unit must be taken apart, and cleaned. After this step, there is need to spread again the grease, using special foodsafe grease paste.
Disassemblying the gear box is not that easy, you will need previous experience and a gear puller to do the job properly and safely.
This appliances are also held with security screws to prevent the users from taking apart the unit, and can only be disassembled using a Security screwdriver tip.
The grease can be purchased here, check at the bottom of the page: Kenwood chef food mixer Grease.
