Question about KitchenAid KSM90 Ultra Power Series Stand Mixer
Hi. The grease that your mixers are lubricated with has reached a stage where the oil is leaching away from the grease. All your machines need this grease changed. Shell Darina EP-2 or Chevron FM ALC EP-2. These machines need to be internally cleaned and re-greased. It's important to remove the oil from any place that it drips. The planetary gear must be removed, cleaned and re-greased also. It's a messy job, but you can do it yourself if you're familiar enough with machinery. If not, then a suitable service outlet can easily do it.
If you choose to do it, go to the Kitchenaid website and locate the parts files for your particular model, these drawings will assist greatly with the project. If you can, take digital photos at every step of dis-assembly as a reference for re-assembly. If this solution assists you, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45

ok, there are 4 skrews holding the body together on its white underside( or what ever color you have.) after you get those there are like 9 or 10 little skrews under a shiny rig that goes around the shaft that does all the work in the bowl. pull the ring off and take out those skrews. after that... well i have to find out for myself how to fix the oil leak! good luck and if you find out let me know! BTW here is a link to the service manual.

SOURCE: oil is leaking
I am not sure of the model you have but you can get a general idea of the internals from;
It looks as if you have an oil seal failure. The parts for your machine model may not be available. You can try and use a close match from another model if not.
Some parts may be available from Sears;
If you have a service company do it, it may not be cost effective. In which case you can sell the machine for parts "as-is" now and cut your losses.
If you want to repair the machine and have some mechanical skills you can disassemble the machine and do the repair.
Note the following points.
) You only need to concentrate on the gear/oil part of the unit.
) Check for the point the oil is leaking from.
) When you disassemble avoid damaging seals and gaskets. You may need them as a reference to find or make a replacement e.g. if the leaking in from a gasket and you can not buy a replacement you will have to cut your own from a gasket kit.(hardware store item) If the leak if from a rubber seal on a shaft you will need it as a "show and tell" at the hardware store.
The oil will need to be replaced.
