Question about KitchenAid K5SS Heavy Duty Commercial Stand Mixer
Hi My daughter got a wonderful classic mixer on yard sale (it is KitchenAid K5A). It works fine but power cord must be replaced (insulation is cracked all over it). I took it from her (because it's unsafe) and promised to replace the cord. I removed the mixer from the stand. Removed screws that are supposed to hold top (mixer part) together. But it does not come apart. Can you suggest anything? Thank you! Michael
Does the plug run through the base or the back of the unit?

Trust me, it does come apart...it could be you just need to give it a good whack with a rubber mallet..mine is in pieces after replacing the cord because I have six yellow wires i didnt mark...hint:mark your wires :)

There are a number of places that have parts and have manuals that are similar to the machine you have. http://store.mendingshed.com/kitaidparts.html This place sells parts and has the shop repair manual for one generation later of your mixer but is basically the same thing. If you decide to have someone else rebuild it for you this place will do the whole thing for $69.95 which I think is a good deal; Hobart made your mixer so you might contact them as well for service. One other place rebuilds classic mixer as well and they specifically mention your model for repair @ $59.95; again a good deal. http://atomic-era-machine.bravehost.com/ Good luck and it is possible to fix it yourself with the downloaded shop manual but it might be more cost effective to have to it serviced by a professional.
