Question about KitchenAid 4159133 Mixer Groove Pin Kitchen Aid
I am trying to remove the planetary from our kitchen aid mixer and I've found lots of great resources with videos etc showing how to do this. The problem I am having is that I cannot see the groove pin to hammer it out. The mixer has been slipping under load and the planetary will rotate through about 30 degrees by hand (hence the need to get in there). Is it possible that it has slipped to a place where I cannot access the groove pin? Should I just run the mixer and let it slip until I can see the pin? Thank you for any help you can provide Kevin
If you cannot see the groove pin is not visible then you have one of two problems.
1 The last time the mixer was taken apart the groove pin was not put back in or not put back in correctly or all the way through the center shaft and out the other side and the pin has fallen out. I which case the planetary should be slipping, remove the trim ring and take two flat head screwdrivers and slip them between the planetary and the lower gear case and try to pry it off (Not too much pressure) because next problem;
2 The groove pin is broken off inside the center shaft, in which case you can still pry it off but with some serious problems potentially, you can break the planetary lip with the pressure of the screwdrivers or you could crack the lower gear case, either will require a part replacement order.
I have only seen one broken groove pin in years of repair and I could still get it out. It happened when someone tried to beat it in and it got bent and eventually broke. In my opinion if you cant see either end of the drive pin then there is no drive pin, try to pry the planetary off as you have seen in the internet videos. Let us know if this helped.

To Remove Flat Beater, Wire Whip or Dough Hook
1. Turn speed control to OFF.
2. Unplug stand mixer or disconnect power.
3. Tilt motor head back.
4. Press beater upward as far as possible and turn left.
5. Pull beater from beater shaft.
If the beaters are stored on the shaft of the mixer when not in use, food traces can harden and make mixer attachments difficult to remove. Should this occur, wrap a hot, damp towel around the shaft to heat and expand the area. A small amount of cooking oil sprayed around the shaft may also help. After the beater has been removed, thoroughly clean the beater shaft area with a small brush to remove any food residue.

Why not just buy a power converter for the mixer and other electronics on Amazon. They are cheap and can be adjusted for
110 - 240 and can be used anywhere in the world.

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.

You don't need to seat the brushes. Remove the brush caps and pull the brushes out by their springs, being VERY careful to note the position of them since they only go back in one way. Measure the free length of the spring before pulling it out. It is critical that you write down the length sticking out with very slight pressure on it so that it is seated against the armature when you measure.
Clean the curved surface of the carbon brushes with a sharp knife being careful not to scratch the curved surface. If you have them installed wrong they will not go all the way in and will not contact the armature and it will not run. Measure the length, as done above, of the spring to make sure it is in correctly!! If it is not in correctly the spring will stick out 1/4 inch longer than it should.
