Using flat screwdriver, remove upper main shaft cover screws (3 of them) to expose shaft nut. Using 3/4" wrench, remove nut and washer on top of main shaft. Using 9/16" wrench, remove double nuts and washers on both small shafts (the double bearing-retainer plate can stay screwed on). Using flat screwdriver, carefully pry stainless drip ring from lower housing (it's just press-fit). Using 3/4" wrench, remove acorn nut and locknut from bottom of main shaft (hold on to the housing, it's gonna drop down and it's HEAVY). Using flat screwdriver, remove cast iron cover hold-down screws (4). Place wood block over end of main shaft bottom to protect threads, and tap upward with a hammer. Don't go crazy with hammer, top housing could go flying. It may take several taps (it's on tight). Increase force slowly so as to minimize chance of damage. Prying out the two press caps from upper housing with a flat screwdriver will give you a place to stick your fingers to lift cover off once it's tapped loose.That'll get the top housing off. But planetary shaft isn't coming out without complete transmission dis-assembly. Better get a book, or better still, hire a pro. Just be careful with Hobart factory repairmen. I've had a VERY bad experience with a VERY highly-paid factory tech. You may have better luck than me, but I'd ask around at a few restaurants and search the 'net for an independant repairman. They tend to work harder for less money than factory guys, and take more pride in their work. Hope this helps!

How do I reattach a planetary that was pulled off?


I haven't seen enough of that model to remember, look up a local service agent and ask them is probably your best option. Whoever does the warranty repairs for Kitchen Aid would be the best person.

Planetary assembly low and beater not locking


Edward, it sounds like your planetary is starting to separate.Where the center shaft connects to the planetary commonly separates, the pieces are machine pressed together, and can separate, usually your beater, and planetary plate will just fall off into the mixer, while the center shaft stays up inside the mixer with the gears on it.

What you will need to do is buy a new planetary assembly, you do also have the option to have it pressed back together by a machinist, but it is usually cheaper just to buy a new planetary. According to your model number you have a Onyx Black mixer, here is a link to the replacement planetary on our website: http://www.mendingshed.com/9708176.html

That should solve your problem, also here is a link to the service manual in case you need any help taking the mixer apart: http://ep.yimg.com/ty/cdn/mendingshed/kitchenaid6qtservicemanual.pdf

And of course, if you need any help you can call us and speak with a KitchenAid technician over the phone

Thank you,

The lip of the planetary ripped off and I am having a trouble replacing it for a Kitchen aid K5-A mixer


The planetary is replaced by removing the chrome drip ring from the housing and then knocking the through pin out that holds the planetary hub onto the shaft from the gearbox. In New Zealand the planetary comes as individual parts not an assembled unit so will certainly look different to the full assembly you take off. The lip of the planetary ripping off is most likely caused by one or more of the 5 gearcase screws under the planetary coming loose and rubbing. Check the other 4 (total) screws at back and middle of gearcase as well.

Professional 600 575 watts beater shaft is loose


If the beater shaft that you attach the beater to is loose in it's housing, then you will need a new planetary for your mixer, it is a relatively easy fix to make, but you will have to order the part before you can effect a fix.


The 600 model has the center shaft attached to the planetary by means of a heat pressure press in. Which means that when the colored rotating part starts to come loose that you have to replace the whole planetary piecec994bebd-6a21-41c8-821e-a90ec9e3ea14.jpg
the piece that the beater attaches to is called the agitator shaft and it will need to be removed and put on to the new planetary when you install the new one. If the agitator is actually the piece that is loose then you need a gear at the top, a pin underneath of the gear, or a snap ring that holds the shaft together in the planetary housing. Go to the kitchenaid address listed here>> http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/product_literature/search.jsp?siteCd=KAD
when the page opens look on the left side of page and fill in the proper model number (it is on the bottom of your mixer on a white tag), the page will give several choices go to the parts list section and click on that choice for your model number, (you will need the proper part number to order the correct color for your mixer, by following the parts list diagram you will see that there is a very understandable process that you can follow to open up the mixer and replace the planetary, hope that this helps, let us know if you need assistance or if this answered your question

The planetary pan has dropped about 1/2" and I can see the gears.


You need a new planetary. It's that simple, the new post 2002 design for the Epicurean the Accolaid, the Pro and Professional series mixers the planetary is held on by a grooved center pin that is simply pressed onto the planetary cup, when this shaft begins to drop you need a new planetary with new center shaft it is the only KA recognized fix, there is another but you need to have a drill press and be handy at making a jig. It is frankly more effort than buying a new planetary. if the machine is generally run down and you don't want to fix it you can probably sell it for parts, I know that I would be interested, but the machine is a good mixer and a planetary is like $30.00 bucks and takes about a half hour and some paper towels to change out. Easily performed by a DIY'er. Let ud know if this helped.

I need a repair manual and parts manual


Once you're familiar with it, the A200 is OK to work on. Just pay close attention to the sequence in which the gears are removed and lay them out on a table in that sequence. You'd need to remove most of the gears from the center planetary shaft, which requires removal of the shift lever (right side, 4 screws). You shouldn't need to remove the planetary (lower end that holds the attachments and rotates). Eventually you'll be able to remove the smaller shafts as assemblies and replace the brass worm gear.

You'll want to scoop out the grease with brass shavings in it (replace all the grease to be thorough, especially if it has broken down and is very runny or very thick (the grease should be a little bit thinner than the consistency of peanut butter), spin the removed bearings by hand and listen for rough operation (particularly the smaller bearings on the upper end of the two small shafts (bearings in the upper bearing cover). Also check to see that the two brass bushings, which reside in two of the gears removed from the center planetary shaft, spin freely BOTH on the planetary shaft AND in the gear they reside in (if not, one of your speeds probably won't work).

For an experienced technician, the job would take approximately 1-1.5 hours unless the old grease is all cleaned out thoroughly to replace with all new grease (thorough cleaning requires the removal of planetary and planetary shaft), and thorough cleaning can be a time consuming process. Then you might get closer to 2.5 hours.

Planetary housing fell off


BRUCE, sorry for the initial solution... I had a total brain cramp of what you were describing and after reflecting on your original problem and then seeing your second entry realized what happened. You are absolutely correct that the planetary shaft is press fit onto the planetary housing. For whatever reason, I overlooked that.
I cannot explain why it the housing came of the shaft, but suspect that vibrations during its use caused the fitting to loosen and the planetary housing to fall off.
You have two options. Option #1) Purchase a new planetary assembly that includes the agitator shaft, which will run between $35~$57, plus S&H depending on the vendor or Option #2) try to reattach the planetary housing back onto planetary shaft. (BTW, if you reorder the planetary use the part number from your Parts List manual for your particular color and model, not the 9078036 number you found on the housing)
I suspect the planetary housing’s spline well has already been weakened and there may be micro-cracking which is not clearly evident so the refitting may or may not work. Of course it may be worth trying and fit back together without any problems.
Since it will be difficult to get good mechanical advantage by hitting the planetary housing back onto the planetary shaft while the mixer is upright, you will need to remove the planetary shaft from the transmission housing before you attempt to hammer the shaft back onto the planetary housing.
If you attempt to refit the planetary shaft back to its housing, place the housing on a piece of soft wood to protect the enamel paint before you start to hammer the shaft. Also use a piece of wood on the top of the shaft so you don’t accidentally damage the top of the shaft with your hammer. Good luck. I hope this solution was more helpful than my first one. – hslincoln, Burke, VA -

I have a t801 mixer with a bent planetary shaft.


Remove the whole planetary from the bottom... There should be a large nut on the main shaft...remove it ....whole assembly drops down...careful...don't drop it......At the top of the bent shaft you should see some center punches holding a thin nut in place.....drill them slightly so you can loosen the nut. There are some studs that hold the lower bushings in place...remove them with a straight blade that fits the screw snug. You can have a new shaft made out of stress proof steel shafting from a competent machine shop........MONSTROSPIZZA.COM

HOW DO YOU REMOVE THE PLANETARY ON A KITCHENAID MIXER MODEL KP26M1XGR3


Hi DAVE, Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! The inspection and troubleshooting of the inside of your mixer is a DITY capability, particularly if your mixer is out of warranty. Just be sure to have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case: KP26M1, and select one of the first two files listed under Parts List (47) (The first file, KP26M1XAZ4.pdf (304.18 KB), is for a -4 series model and the second file, KP26M1XAZ5.pdf (724.41 KB) is for a -5 series with slightly different insides, so make sure you have the correct Parts List manual.) (For the purpose of this solution I will use the 5 Series Parts manual. Substitute accordingly if you have a 4 Series model.)
Turn to pages 4 & 5, titled “Case, Gearing and Planetary Unit”, which provides and exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the parts.
(1) Remove your KA Decorative Trim Band (Illus No. 3) by removing one (1) screw (Illus No. 22).
(2) Remove the four (4) head cover screws (Illus No 14) and lift of the mixer head cover (Gearcase Motor Housing top, Illus No. 1).
(3) Next, remove the two (2) screws (Illus. No. 14) securing your (Speed) Control Assembly (Ilus. No. 19) so you can move the Control Assembly out of the way. This will allow you better access to the Transmission Housing (Illus. No. 4).
(4) Remove the four (4) Transmission Housing screws (Illus. No. 14). Carefully lift the Transmission Housing off the base. The Transmission Cover Gasket (Illus. No. 6) may come off with the Hosuing or remain on the base. (Recommend reordering a new gasket if damaged)
(5) Remove all grease from inside the transmission cover and off all your gears. (This is the messy/fun part. While cleaning away the current grease, be sure to be keep and eye out for metal ‘filings’ that may be suspended in the grease.
(6) Remove the Worm Gear drive assembly (Illus. Nos. 16, 17, and 18) and set aside.
(7) Remove Retaining Clip (Illus. No. 7) from the Planetary shaft.
(8) Remove (lift up) the Bevel Gear (Illus. No. 8) from the Planetary shaft. This may require a little friendly persuasion, but it should eventually slide off the shaft exposing the Retaining Pin (Illus. No. 9).
(9) Remove the Retaining Pin. It should come out easily in either direction.
(10)You can remove the Worm Gear Follower (Illus. No. 10) but once the retaining pin is removed, you should be able to push the Planetary Assembly (Illus. No. 28) down through the Lower Center Bearing (Illus. No. 12). A few taps with a soft faced mallet may be required.
You now have access to the Planetary gear and Agitator Shaft Assembly (Illus. No. 34). Apply the same techniques to remove/replace any components from the Agitator shaft.
Assemble in reverse order above.
