    I also have a G model, when I took off the switch plate, somehow the alignment got out of place. Now I can't get the gear lever to line up correctly. The machine also makes a growling noise when it is turned on. Any suggestions?

    Did you ever figure it out? I have used my grandmother's Model G for fifteen or twenty years, and I would like to give it a once over.

    How did you remove the grease ring? There is what looks like a molded divot on one side that I'm guessing is a snap to hold it on.

If you only want to service the unit and not open the case, you can add grease through the gear shifter plate opening once you remove it. if you have a grease gun with a flex nozzle that's a bonus.
If not it is a messy job. Keep lots of paper towels at hand and use a narrow spatula to get the grease inside. Get as much in as you possibly can.

To remove planetary, with pin removed, spray a bit of wd-40 or other penetrating oil into where the pin came out of let it penetrate for a few minutes. Plan-A Take two screwdrivers and gently try to pry the planetary away from the body of the mixer. Plan-B Add a bit more lubricant to the shaft pin area and install a beater, then try prying with one screwdriver while putting downward pressure on the beater, alternate prying on both sides of planetary. Excessive force at the planetary top can/will crack it as it is a molded piece of metal. If you found this solution helpfull, please rate it. Good luck.

    For the life of me, I could not pry the planetary off, despite using two flat-head screwdrivers. So, I installed the whisk, took a handheld soldering torch and heated the center of the metal molded piece (the planetary), then used a flat prybar wedged under the body of the mixer and over the top lip of the whisk. With a couple whacks with a hammer, it finally dropped down.

    By the way, the brass end of what appears to be the center shaft which this planetary rotates, is in fact, just a brass fitting and not the end of the shaft itself. I thought I could wedge the screwdrivers between the planetary and housing, then hit the shaft end with a mini ball pin hammer. Bad idea. All I did was dent the fitting. No structural damage, but maybe I can save someone from making the same mistake.

Motor undefined


It sounds like your motor is going bad. When an electric motor has some age, the motor brushes will wear out and fail to make contact inside the motor. The missing sound you are describing is probably a burnt spot on the armature where the brushes are not transferring electricity. If the unit is an expensive unit, you may be able to order replacement brushes for the motor, or even better.... a replacement motor

Not working at all


Hello Aliceoye,

I understand that you are haveing a problem with you Kitchen Aid Mixer. The reason your mixer is not comming on at all is either the brushed or the speed switch.

First lets check the brushed. On both sides of there are little plastic holders with a slot in them. Remove one at a time, if there is still a black material at the end of the spring then that one is good. Now look up inside the hole and see the little notch stick down make sure that you put the tappered side up toward that and screw the cap back on. Do the same thing to the other side. Now check and see if the unit runs. If it stell does not run lets go the the next possibility.

Now we are going to check the speed switch.
1. Remove the back cover.
2. Take a electrical meter and check the power coming in to the unit the white and black wire, got voltage, unit still not working, unplug and lets proceed.
3. Move the speed switch backwards and forwards and see if the the shaft is moving the plate at the back of the unit that the wires are attached to. Yes, then your speed switch is bad.
4. Put everything back together and order this part PS1957234 the part cost $20.48 and can be purchased from partselect and the following link http://www.partselect.com/PartDetail.aspx?Inventory=1957234&imgID=1&Page=1&SourceCode=UNDEFINED

Problem with the 3rd gear on Hobart D300


Hobart won't give up service manuals The slide for your shift fork may be froze or corroded at top. The gear setups are fairly simple. The mainshaft nut comes off counterclockwise. The top gear has one way rollers with shims under the large washer. This gear assy must go back in the right way or you will break gears as soon as you start it.These mixers corode a lot at the top gearbox when they sit idle from moisture. Also check for broken gear teeth that may be jaming up he works. If you want to sell it let us know.
