Question about KitchenAid KSM150PS Artisan Series Stand Mixer
When I move the mixer after use, there is a puddle of oil on the counter
Your gearbox grease is breaking down, time to repack it with some new stuff.

if the oil is black or dark green this is the transmission grease. There is plenty in the case don't worry. You may have a cracked transmission case or a bad gassket. I think the most likely thing is a loose screw or two. Take the trim band off, 1 screw. Then take the 4 screws that hold the cover on. You can now lift the top and take a look for the sourse of the leak

From what I see, the "O" ring on the vertical center shaft that could be the problem and/or the transmission case gasket. I will let you know what i find when I venture into my mixer. Also, if you decide to try and repair your mixer, plan on replacing the nylon worm gear while you have it apart. Aparently they are known to strip or break. The cost should be minumal for all parts depending on your model, worm gear is between $14.00 to $25.00, the "O" ring maybe $1.00 at your local hardware store and the transmission gasket should be about $5.00. Mixer grease is $17.00 but I think I can find a sutible substitute locally. Check out http://www.goodmans.net/get_list_10.htm for more information and parts.

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.

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
