The V-1401 has a power bowl lift that is belt driven by the same motor that is used to mix. Remove top cover to check the belt. If belt is good and not slipping, is the operator handle working on /in the bowl lift gear box? If not, could be broken shear pin on handle or worn out parts in gear box. Next thing to check is the output shaft of the bowl lift gear box. If it is turning when the operator handle is engaged and the bowl lift jack shaft is not turning there is a broken shear pin between the output shaft and jack shaft. If everything is good to this point the bowl lift yoke has a large brass nut on back side of it that the jack shaft goes through. If the nut is worn the bowl lift yoke will slip, fall and/or jam. to unstick and lower the bowl , one can turn the jack shaft by hand. WARNNING : if the nut is worn enough the yoke can drop suddenly and it is very heavy.
Something must be broken if the motor is turning and the planetary is not. It will be one of the following, we will start from the first point of contact with the armature
1) Worm gear broken (fuse gear) you say no teeth broken
2) Worm gear not broken but whole unbroken plastic part not gripping aluminium boss
3) Pin through worm gear broken or missing
4) Pin through centre (or bevel) gear broken or missing
5) Pin through small gear in planetary broken or missing
6) Pin through planetary hub centre shaft broken or missing
The most common ones in order of likelihood are, 1, 2, 3 and 6
Ed, if you continue to do it yourself, the end result will be tossing good money out. Have a professional check the system and save the unit from permanent damage. Chipping parts of a gear off means a serious resistance force or action has occurred. One force is slowing down as the other is speeding up. Gear alignment can be moved off center, or a sudden application (sudden stop or start) can damage the least resistant parts. For example, when a hook turns within the mixing chamber and the resistance of the content is too great on the turning shaft and gears, which ever part is weakest will break. Complicated I guess.
The first vertical shaft has a brass gear that runs off the rotor. The ancient models had a spring loaded slip clutch built onto the gear. Upgrade it with a worm shaft kit which gives you a complete new shaft and fixed gears. I think it includes the upper and lower bearings. Maybe replace the grease if it has not been done. Or look for a sheared key on the worm shaft.
HI CHECK ALL GEARS FOR A SHEARED KEY. IF IT HAS A ROLLER CLUTCH, COULD BE WORN ROLLER CLUTCH OR SPRINGS MADE OF SPRING STEEL BEHIND EACH ROLLER IN CLUTCH FATIGUED. YOU CAN CAREFULLY RUN MACHINE JOGGING ON OFF SWITCH WITH GEAR CASE COVER OFF AND CHECK GEAR ROTATION FOR SHEARED KEY. IT'S ONE MESSY JOB!!! SOMETIMES NUT ON TOP OF MAIN SHAFT UNDER CAP OUT OF ADJUSTMENT. SHOULD BE APPX. 1/2 TO 1 TURN FROM TIGHTENED. HOPE I GAVE YOU SOME ASSISTANCE, JOE
you have no speed 1,2,3 right?first thing to do is drop the planetary (this is the bottom with the beater shaft)undo the bolt and it will drop down.you will see 1 gear,that gear should not spin without the shaft spinning too.if it does you have a sheared key on the gear.if you have access to the transmission check the worm gear attached to the motor it has a roll pin through it make sure its not sheared.then look at the top left gear assembly and check for sheared (broken)keys.clean up all the parts,if you dont you could miss something.let me know.
