Accessory Gear Stuck on KitchenAid Artisan

My KitchenAid Artisan was having some serious troubles for the past few weeks. Overheating to the point where I had to put an ice pack on it to finish a batch of marshmallows because it was getting disconcertingly hot. I opened it up and found that the accessory drive gear attachment hub (quite the mouthful!) part #9705130 required a lot of force to turn. All the other gears seem in perfectly good condition. I decided to take out the gear and consider replacement after a good inspection, but I can't get it out. As far as I can tell based on the schematics and looking closely at it, there is no retaining clip or pin or anything holding it in place. But after prying with a screwdriver, and then using a light hammer and a punch when that failed, I have only managed to move it about 3/16 inch. Does anyone know how to take out this gear? I am about to take a clamp and an engineers hammer and knock it out of there, but wanted to make sure I wasn't going to damage anything first.

    Turns out you can just tap this part out with a hammer. If it's not stuck like mine. I tapped mine out, and it came out with a piece of the sleeve that it should comfortably fit inside still attached to the gear. I guess it was VERY siezed up. Unfortunately, this KA mixer might be sold for parts. Not sure I want to bother fixing it.

The fix for that is a new gear and replacement housing (the whole painted top part) The bush is unfortunately not available as a spare part.

SOURCE: Kitchenaid Stand Mixer - gear assembly coming loose

There should be screws to tighten. Or maybe the pin holding the gearhead on is missing, tho that is unlikely.

SOURCE: paddle beater won't push up and turn to release

When you are able to remove the paddle, feel the opposite side of the spindle. It should be smooth. The pin should not stick out the back at all. Carefully, tap it in until it is even with the spindle. That will fix you up, unless the pin itself is also damaged. If so, get a small file and remove any burrs from where the paddle mounts.

It appears that retaining ring (7) has snapped. It is the retaining ring which attaches to the drive shaft. Here is the parts diagram:

From it you can see how to remove the case cover and access the gear train. You may have to replace the shaft if its groove is worn allowing the retaining ring to slip off.

I have a brand new kitchenaid artisan mixer that i have only used once. I cannot move the speed control lever at all.

Take it back, no point voiding your warranty pulling it apart. You do know you need to put a bit of downwards pressure on that knob when moving it forward and back ??

Artisan mixer quit rotating. I took it apart and the hub bevel gear was frozen in the case. I beat it out but the bearing surface is pretty deeply scarred. I am wondering if I can sand the shaft enough...

You can certainly continue to use it without the accessory drive gear. Repair without replacing the gear and housing (the proper way) will leave you with a less than optimal accessory drive but if you don't overwork it it could last. Clean it out and polish the bearing surface on the gear up a but then get some good grease into the grooves on bush & bearing and bang it back together. You don't have a lot to lose.

Squeak while mixing.

That sounds like the accessory drive is binding in the bush in the front housing. Don't use it and think seriously about getting it to a Kitchen Aid service agent. No good will come of forcing the issue. If you never use any accessories in that front drive you could consider asking them to remove the gear and put it back together again without it. If you force it to continue eventually the fuse gear will fail and you could even wreck the gear that drives the planetary. The accessory gear will need to be replaced and if the bush is damaged enough the top housing will need to be replaced as the bush is not available separately.

My kitchenaid artisan mixer doesnt run fast enough

It may be seizing up the bush that your accessory drive runs in, if you can see grindings in the front by the square drive that is a sign. Here in NZ that bush is only available as part of that whole top cover/housing. The accessory drive gear will also need to be replaced.

Kitchenaid Mixer Planetary becomes sluggish when met with resistance.

The problem will be with the worm gear, if the gear is not stripped then check that the locating pin for the worm gear is not broken or missing. Occasionally the plastic gear can detach from the aluminium boss between plastic and shaft. The worm gear is the 99.9% place where drive can slip. Afterthought, I suppose the planetary pin is not missing or broken??

Kitchenaid Artisan Stand Mixer has stuck hub bevel gear (KSM150PS)

The bevel gear sits above the worm-follower gear. I think you mean the drive attachment gear.

I think I have the same, or similar problem. I ground a piece of meat that stopped it from working. The drive-attachment-gear turns if I push it in, but then it pops out. I am still trying to figure out what part is causing the issue - the drive attachment gear, or maybe even the worm follower gear.

I have a KitchenAid 600 professional stand mixer. I was told that you can only use the dough hook with setting 2 for only 5 minutes. What do you do for recipes requiring a longer time for kneading? Is...

It is a matter of overheating. I have used the same mixer for 8-10 minutes, then put an ice pack on the gear head. The problem is that they cheapened the gearhead in the newer models by using plastic gears. The older ones with metal gears didn't have the same problem, however they put the warning on all models to cover their butts . . . .Just fill a zip lock bag with ice and lay it on top of the gearhead before and during use and you can runit longer without overheating and melting the gears.
