If you can feel anything when you press the button, unplug it and try to turn the mixer. Once you get it freed up, put a drom of cooking oil where the shaft comes out through the case.

HOW DO I MANUALLY LOWER BOWL IF MIXER WILL NOT START?


Trina you might be better off to contact Hobart or an authorised Hobart service agent about this. The lack of answers probably indicates resident hobart experts are absent.

Kitchen aid mixer drops metal shavings in the


Hi REDLACQUER. Sorry to hear about the metal shavings. This is probably not to best way to take iron in your diet... My first thought would be to ask if your mixer is still under warranty. If you’ve had the machine less than one year, then I’d let KA replace your mixer with a new one. However, I suspect like many who seek assistance from FIXYA.com, your mixer is out of warranty, so what can you do?
Have you been able to find exactly where the metal shavings are originating? From the symptoms you describe, it appears that the planetary/agitator shaft assembly may be rubbing against its housing and generating the metal shavings at higher speeds. Have you noticed any increased noise levels/squeaking/screeching when the planetary rotates? It’s also possible that the planetary is out of alignment and not rotating true. Could the agitator shaft been jarred or hit hard during set up or moving in or out of you storage cabinet? Or the shavings could be symptomatic of other internal gear problems, but that would be the least likely scenario as the mixers internal gears are pretty much self-contained.
The good news is that this can be troubleshot and fixed quite easily (OK, maybe with a little effort) by yourself if you are a DITY type person, and feel adventurous. However, before you start to disassemble your mixer, be sure you have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website at: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case, KP2671, and select the last file, KP2671XWH3.pdf (325.07 KB) listed under Parts List (24) (check to verify that it matches your mixer 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. I suspect your Planetary Assembly, Illus No. 15, is rubbing somewhere against its housing, Lower Gearcase, Illus. No. 24.
To gain access to these pieces you’ll need the following tools: a regular or Phillips screw driver, retaining clip pliers, and a small drift pin punch and a small hammer. You need to remove the Transmission Housing (Illus No. 7) and remove all the lubricating grease from the transmission housing and gears (when removing the grease be on the lookout for shavings in the grease which would indicate excessive gear wear). This will allow you to remove Illus No. 25, 21, 18 & 19, Retaining Clip, Bevel Gear, Retaining Pin and Worm Gear Follower, respectively.
Once you remove the Retaining Pin (Illus. No. 18) the Planetary Assembly can be tapped down through the Lower Gearcase Assembly (Illus. No 24). With the Planetary removed, you can inspect it and the inside of the Lower Gearcase to determine where the shavings originated. Be sure to look closely at the Planetary Gear in the lower gearcase as well as the Agitator Shaft Pinion Gear (Illus. No. 12). That will also identify what parts need to be replaced, which you can order online.
You’ll need to replace the grease you removed with new grease. You should use a food-grade grease that you can order online (although I’ve seen automotive bearing grease used too – your call). Do not try to reuse any original grease as it may have ‘debris’ in it.
Here are five potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com (for grease). You should search for ‘food grade grease’. Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
It can be messy but quite gratifying to diagnose and repair your mixer yourself.
Finally, here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer. The mixers displayed in the links are different KA models, but the principles are the same.
Between these three websites and their excellent pictures and descriptions and your Parts List manual, you should now be able to completely disassemble and reassemble your mixer.
I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

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.

I took out the side bolts and removed the top, now have no power to unit. did I put it back wrong? Problem I needed to address was the paddle was too low and scraping the inside of bowl. Help with both...


sm_schedule, the side bolts you removed were, in fact, the brush holder caps, and if you remove the brushes, you cut off the power to the electric motor (armature). I suspect that one or both of the brushes is (are) not seated properly. Did you remove the brushes to replace them or were you just inspecting them? I'd suggest removing them again and make sure the concave contact face of the brushes are resting completely on the armature. If you've turned a brush 90 degrees too much, it wont' seat properly. As far as adjusting the mixer head so that it doesn?t droop, this should be pretty easy to fix if you?ve got a small blade screw driver and a small hex driver (or jewelers screw driver). First, do you still have the KSM90 Parts List? If not, you can download a PDF version from the KA website. Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number (in your case, use KSM90P) and select one of the files that appear under Parts List. Turn to page 4 - Case, Gearing and Planetary unit, which shows the exploded view diagram and locate Illus. Nos. 29 & 30. Page 5 lists the parts as Adjusting Screw and Set Screw respectively. What?s probably happened is that over 12 years of operation, the vibrations from your mixer has caused the set screw to loosen and drop, hence the lower mixer head. Both screws will need to be ?adjusted? to move the head back to its original position. Now the problem is removing the head from its pedestal. Turn to page 8 and gently remove Illus. No. 7, Hinge Pin, with a hammer and pin driver. With the hinge pin removed the mixer head and pedestal can be separated and you should have access to adjusting and set screws. I would inspect them for wear and tear, and replace them, if you deem appropriate. It may take a few trial reassemblies to get the mixer head back to the original factory position, but once there, everything should be OK. I hope this helps! Howard, Burke, VA

Thumping Noise Under Duress


Hi. Your problem probably lies in the plastic transmission housing. This cheap piece of plastic has no business in a high priced mixer, as it has two important shafts that depend on the integrity of this housing for their bearing seats

Remove the top cover from the mixer. At the front top of the mixer is the trans. housing. Examine this housing carefully for cracks. If you find cracks, then you have new damage inside the mixer. If, when you replaced the three gears, I suspect that you did not discover the cracks in the trans. housing and reinstalled it after you replaced the gears, or you may have missed internal damage from the first breakdown.

When this cheap plastic part fails, it can destroy the worm gear, it's bearings and the bearing seats and possibly more.

Kitchenaid's replacement housing is made of metal. Kitchenaid markets these mixers saying it can handle bread dough. The ugly truth is they cannot!

You must open the unit up, remove and save the grease if it's relatively new. You must check every moving part in the mixer's transmission. You have to remove grease from these parts in order to find the damage. When you have the unit repaired, sell it!

I had the same problem with my mixer. I replaced all of the broken parts, and sold it. Since then, I bought a used Hobart N50 ( 5 quart), and an A200 (20 quart) mixers, both of which are commercial mixers. Both of these can handle heavy dough and they do so with ease.

Kitchenaid, to this date, have refused to recall these trans. housings, even though thousands of these cheap plastic housings have failed. Good luck with this saga!

Kitchenaid 250watt standard mixer - how to take a part ?


The speed of these mixers is controlled by a component inside of the unit known as a Hall Sensor. This part is simple to remove and install. Just contact your nearest kitchenaid parts supplier for this item. It will cost about $13.00.

Be sure to unplug your mixer before removing the cover. You will need a phillips head screwdriver. Once inside you will be able to unplug the hall sensor from the control panel and from the top of the driveshaft. good luck
