Kitchenaide Mixer Attachment Gear Seized Up

I was using my Kitchenaide Mixer to grind turkey and the motor seemed to be slowing until it finally would not turn at all. We have taken the mixer apart and ordered part #9705130 (#12 on the parts list) thinking it would replace the one that seized up. However, the drive gear hub did not come with what appears to be a bushing around it. The parts guide does not show that you can order the bushing separately. Is it part of the top housing so we would have to replace that as well?

SOURCE: Kitchen aid 300 watt counter mixer model ksm90

Here is a link to the instruction manual:

Quick summary:

Tilt back the head of your mixer. Look at the joint between the head/body of the mixer. A flat-head (standard) screw will now be visible. Turn this screw counter-clockwise to raise the attachments, clockwise to lower them. Don't turn the screw too much, it is pretty sensitive.

SOURCE: Kitchenaid mixer makes a clanging noise

Hi. If your mixer is under warranty, call Kitchenaid. They are very good at replacing mixers under warranty.

If you are out of warranty, this is where the fun begins, NOT!

Remove the silver band from around the top of mixer. Remove 4 screws that secure the top cover, remove cover and at the front top of the machine locate the transmission cover. Inspect this cover carefully for cracks. If you find cracks in it...You have just discovered Kitchenaid's dirty little secret. A cheap plastic transmission housing! The failure of this cheap part is the cause of all of the rest of the damage inside the mixer, which may include a destroyed worm gear and shaft, destroyed bearings and their seats. You're not alone. I estimate that thousands of these plastic parts have failed causing great damage to the rest of the mixer

Kitchenaid's replacement housing is made out of metal. If you feel up to the task of repairing the mixer yourself goto the Kitchenaid website and do a search for the parts catalog for your mixer model, these will assist you with disassembly, reassembly and parts ordering.

If you're not up to the task, take it to an authorized repair place once you have put the cover back on.
Even if you're out of warranty, you may be able to have Kitchenaid pay for the replacement parts, they did for my mixer. Be persistent with them and try to get to a manager with your complaint. This cheap piece of plastic has no business being installed on a high-priced machine.

If this solution has assisted you, please rate it. ricardok45

The mixer won't work the pasta attachment, keeps rotating the mixer motor.

It sounds like it could be a possible stripped gear. You could have a bad attachment drive gear or bevel pinon gear.
Best thing to do would be to take the mixer apart, and inspect those gears. Here is a link to the service manual which will aid you in taking apart your 4.5 quart mixer:

Model g kitchenaide manual is hard to locate. Please help

Locate your model number and then try searching on this site:

If you can not locate your model number, for a hand mixer it should be on the bottom of the mixer adjacent to the mixer attachment holders.

Thank you for using FixYa!

On low it makes a really loud grinding noise the higher you turn up the speed the slower it becomes.

It sounds like the Worm Gear is going out. The faster the motor runs,
the more damages the Center Gear is grinding away the teeth of the
Worm Gear. Things start to slow down, and eventually they will come
to a halt. It's time to replace the Worm Gear. Also make sure to use
new fresh Kitchenaid Food Grade Grease with the new replacement.

The attachment/accessory "screw" fell into my mixer while the beaters were mixing a cake batter. The mixer froze up when it hit the "Screw" and now the unit won't turn on. Did I burn up the motor? Does...

Sounds like a classic case of the gears jumping out of sync. This is an issue that needs to be handled by a repair place or sent back to KitchenAide. The motor on a KitchenAide is very strong and it sounds like when the cap for the accessory fell in it must have somehow gotten jammed, although I really don't see how that would be possible unless there was something else in the mix as well.

Grinding sounds and slower mixer speeds

It sounds like you may have a broken worm gear inside your mixer which is a common problem.It is a wearable part which transfers the power from the motor to the main drive. It may be chipped or damaged right now, and running it will cause more damage. Part number for the worm gear is W10112253. This does however require some know how to replace. Hope this helps
