Question about KitchenAid KP2671 Professional 6 Series Stand Mixer

5 Answers

New gear housing won't fit.

I have the following . My wife's mixer (KitchenAid Professional 6 qt-- Model # kp26m1xmr --- Serial #wt1427049) stopped working so I contacted Kitchenaid and it was out of warranty so I took it apart and found what was mentioned elsewhere on this site about the gear housing being plastic and defective and sure enough mine was cracked. So I ordered a new one and just received my metal one but I can't get the shaft to go up into the hole at the top inside the gear housing. The hole is too small. Any ideas for that? Do I have the wrong part? I ordered it from Goodman's Parts online, It is part number KA-8211779 and said it would replace KA-8212396/8211779/9703671.

    I am in a quandry... how am I supposed to find the right part? I searched many different parts supply sites and put the same model number in at each site, and this was the part number they had. Maybe I will contact the parts supply place directly and see if they can figure it out.

    One problem. The original part was thrown away. (some well-meaning person in our house was cleaning up) so I don't have the original to compare it too. One thing that I did notice was that there is a metal ring inside the top of the housing where the shaft is supposed to go and when I originally went to install the housing there was a similar ring around the top of the shaft. I removed it with some pliers. It was on there tight. Could the shaft have expanded?

I have verified with other sites that, indeed you have the correct replacement part. (If the part number verifies with the packaging)

Replacement Kitchen Aid stand mixer transmission housing and gasket. New Redesigned Magnesium transmission housing improves upon old plastic unit. Fits 6 quart models beginning with KD2661, KT2651, KP2671, KP2671X, KV25HOX, KP26M1X, KP2670. Original KitchenAid part numbers 8211779, 8212396, 9703671. Includes a new gasket.

New gear housing won't fit. - 0a736b6.jpg This IS a press-fit shaft - so you will need to do some light tapping on the shaft to get it in. (quick tip is to pit the shaft in the freezer for an hour to shrink the metal a bit). The old one probably fell out due to usage!!

Be sure to grease it up prior to assembly.

Hi

If you look at the original part and its diffrent, then you have the wrong part, contact the goodmans part store to get the correct part, if the part number was correct (you ordered the correct part) this maybe their fault as the part doesn't fit as its supposed to.

You may have been sent the wrong part. First call Kitchenaid to ensure that this is the right part.

    The new part you received, KA-8211779, it is the upgraded version, stronger than factory default part, and fit mixers KP2671, KP26M1X, KV25G0X, therefore should also fit yours.

    It is difficult to know what you are doing wrong, but the replacement should fit your model.

I own the 6 QT Stand mixer. Is there a Is there a 4 or 5 qt bowl that works with this mixer?


Kitchenaid does not make a 4 or 5 quart bowl that would fit your 6 quart mixer, but other 3rd party companies do!
You may be in luck.
I haven't seen this bowl in person, but it apparently will fit your 6qt mixer. Here is a link to a page selling the mentioned attachment. It comes in a set, with appropriate wire-whip attachments:

Motor clicks every turn


The clicking is probably a small nick in one of the gears, even the smallest chip can cause alot of noise or make the mixer click. Is the beater shaft still turning when you have a load in the mixer (bowl is full)
Or is it just clicking?

If the beater stops turning it is going to be caused by stripped gears, however if it is just clicking this would indicate just a nick in the gear. Either way I would recommend opening the mixer and replacing the damaged gear/gears.

Your mixer is considered a 5 Quart Professional, which means it has the same parts as a KitchenAid 6 quart mixer. The first thing you will want to do is take the mixer apart and disassemble the gearing. You will want to clean off the gears with paper towels and wd-40. Carefully inspect each gear once clean and replace damaged gears.

In the professional mixers when a gear strips you need to replace the grease and housing gasket, this is because the gears are all metal and there may be metal shavings in the grease which could cause the gears to strip again.

The most common gear to go bad in the Professional series mixers is the Worm Follower Gear (9706529). Here is a link to that gear on our website: http://www.mendingshed.com/wormfollower.html

Also, here is a link to the service manual for the mixer, this will aid you in taking the mixer apart and putting it back together correctly. http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/mendingshed/kitchenaid6qtservicemanual.pdf

KP26M1XMR beater shaft falls off


The beater shaft on the 6 quart mixers is part of the planetary assembly. The planetary and center shaft are pressed together, and sometimes they will come apart. The only way to fix this is to replace the planetary or you can have the planetary machine pressed back together.

It is a lot cheaper and less expensive to just replace the planetary. Here is a link to the Planetary Assembly on our website. http://www.mendingshed.com/9708662.html

Kitchenaid mixer leaking oil


Get a copy of the Repair Part List for your model at Kitchenaid.com
Grease inside the Planetary Assembly (the shaft is tight fit to the Planetary
plate at the factory and is not designed to be taken apart, so do not use
any hard object such as a screwdriver to separate them) over times can
turn to liquid and leak down the bowl. Removing the Planetary assembly
and adding Kitchenaid Food Grade Grease is not a task for a novice.
To properly remove the Planetary Assembly, you must work from inside
the Transmission Housing: Remove in this order: Retaining Clip(25), Bevel Gear(21),
Retaining Pin(18), Worm Follower Gear(19). Use a soft mallet to tap out the Shaft
of the Planetary Assembly(15). Re-assemble it in the reverse order.
Note: The Bevel Gear is extremely tightly fit on the shaft, and a pin punch
must be used to remove from the shaft.

The motor is making a grinding noise. The mixer still works, it just sounds weird.


I have fixed many mixers with the same problem. The only part that consistently wears out
is the Worm Gear Follower located inside the Transmission housing. The teeth are wearing out
and becoming chipped. The grinding noises you hear are made by the Worm Gear and the
Follower. As time goes on, the metal filings from the damaged follower will eventually destroy the Follower and the Planetary will stop rotating.
Sooner or later that gear need to be replaced. Also remember to use new Grease after
a new gear replacement (metal filings from the old gear will damage your new gear)
