Oil leaking from the attachment head

The grease leaking out of the KitchenAid mixer can be a common problem. Here is the cause, and how to fix it, and prevent this issue from happening in the future.

The KitchenAid mixers use a Benalene 930-2 grease inside of them. It is a dark, thick grease that can break down and leak out of the mixer. The grease is a non-toxic vegetable based grease, basically it is a food grade grease. Over time, or if you do not use your mixer often the grease can break down, so it would appear that there is oil leaking from the mixer. It is most common for it to leak from the beater shaft (agitator shaft) and from the drip ring.

What you need to do is take the mixer apart, clean out all of the old grease, replace it with about 6 ounces of new food grade grease ( It is also recommended that your replace the o-ring on the center shaft ( and the gearbox gasket (

To prevent the grease from breaking down in the future if you do not use the mixer very often, it is recommended that you pull the mixer out and run it for about 2 minutes every 3-4 weeks, this should stop the grease from breaking down as quickly.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

This applies to mixer models, K45, K45SS, KSM75, KSM90, KSM103, KSM110, KSM150, KSM151, KSM152, K5, K5A, K5SS, KSM5, KSM50P, KP50 AND KPM5

Thank you,

I have model A-200-D Hobart mixer. Serial # 1575984. It is leaking oil into the bowl. Who can I call to get an estimate to service or repair this machine?

The oil leeking into your bowl is old grease that has broken down into oil and is getting past your oil seal you need to take out all of your old grease and oil replace it with hi-temp grease or a good grade lithium grease and replace your agitor shaft oil seal

I have a KSM90 that is about 8 years old. It started leaking oil and the top of the mixer goes down into the bowl too far and it 'drags' the attachment along the bottom of the bowl and makes a generally...


It sounds like the Planetary Gear assy. has gear lubricant leaking into it from the gear case above it. This may not be that unusual so there may be 2 possibilities or a combination of both. The Gear Case is directly above the Planetary Gear assy. It is filled (sort of) with a food grade (assuming...I hope) grease that is necessary to keep things lubed. There are fiber washers and possibly an o-ring in the shaft assembly which should keep the grease from migrating toward your food. The Planetary Gear assy. is the part that rotates around on the business end of the mixer. It has a bronze bearing that is intended to run without lubrication. However it is a wear point and if worn sufficiently, could allow escape lubricant from the gear case above to drip into your mix. The Kitchen Aid Service Manual is a good source of info. You can get it as well as complete diagrams of the internal parts at:

I know if it was my mixer, I'd give it a look. They're good tools and worth the effort!

Good luck.

Leaking Dark Oil

Sounds like a combination of two issues.

1. In all likelyhood, the viscosity of the lubricant in the main transmission of your mixer has broken down and is now oil rather than the grease it once was.

2. The seal on the main transmission shaft is worn and the "oil" is leaking past it, resulting in drops of oil forming on the bolt head at the bottom of your planetary and dripping into your bowl.

Draining and replacing the lube and seal is a rather involved repair. To do it properly, complete transmission disassembly is required.

If it was my pizza business and there's just a drop of oil here and there ( 1-3 drops in the bottom of bowl in the morning ) I'd let it ride, keep wiping the oil away prior to mixing a batch and budget (apprx $500-$600 ) for a proper repair as it becomes worse over time. Unfortunately, it won't get better.

I'll add.

It's been my experience that D300's and pizza dough don't play well together. Be certain to calculate the weight of all your ingredients and then consult the capacity chart found here.

Stay within the guidelines and you should be fine...however your batches will be rather small.

Hope this is of some use.

Kitchenaid Household stand mixer. Model no.

it is hard to tell you exactly what it could be, but a common problem is after a while the transmission gasket does deteriorate and will begin to leak oil.the gasket is part number4162324. the rattling noise inside your unit is most likely cause by a chipped gear inside, this can happen when the unit is put under heavy loads, such as dough. this problem could get worse as there may be fragments inside that will damage it more.hope this helps

I am unable to remove housing cover of Kitchenaid Mixer #K45SSWH

Hi. Goto and do a search for your model#. Look for the manuals tab, locate and download the parts list for your mixer. These drawings will assist you with disassembly and reassembly. Remove the Planetary assembly by driving out the single pin that holds it to the mainshaft. Clean and regrease it too.

Over time the grease in your mixer will begin to separate into oil and harder grease base. It's time to remove as much of the oil and grease as possible, and then regrease.

To extend the life of your grease, run your mixer for a few minutes every week to keep the oil suspended in the grease. If not used for a long time, the oil will seprate.

I recommend using Chevron FM ALC EP-2 food grade grease, and after 5 years or so when it begins to drip, if you get a few drops in your bowl it won't matter much, in comparison with a petroleum grease that you shouldn't eat at any time.

Goto and find their free Kitchenaid Service Manual and download it. This manual covers your mixer.

Regreasing your mixer isn't difficult, it is however, very messy to clean and regrease, so keep plenty of paper towels, rags, etc. handy. Latex or rubber gloves will help.

If this solution has assisted you, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45

Food made with KitchenAid Stand mixer tastes like grease

The likelyhood of grease coming from the mixer is extremely small. As long as the beater & bowl were washed first and the shortening you used was fresh, there shouldn't be a grease taste.

My kitchenaid mixer is leaking from the part that spins?

I took mine apart and all the grease had settled down around the shaft in the housing due to lack of use,found no seal.Going to spread grease back up on gears,see what happens.I found this at KitcheAids web site.Good luck.
Why do I see oil leaking from the beater shaft of my stand mixer?
Some KitchenAid® stand mixers that are not used very often or have been tipped may experience slight oil leakage from the shaft or hub attachment. To avoid the oil leakage, KitchenAid suggests that you run the mixer weekly for short periods of time. Generally, the mixer may lose approximately X cup of oil before repair is necessary. The oil used is FDA approved and is not harmful to consume, should any get into the food that you are preparing.

K45 started smoking while mixing cookie dough

There is the possibility that if the mixer is 30 years old and it has never been serviced that the gasket around the gear case is leaking oil and in that case it would not be hard to get liquids on the armature or the stator as the gear grease in the transmission is vegetable base grease and it separates into liquids and solid and when the head is tilted up the failed gasket allows the separated oil to leak down and to the rear onto the mixer right onto the motor parts. It maybe nothing more that cleaning out all the old grease and re-packing and adding a new gasket.
