AppliancePartsPros.com. This is just one of many places you can go for replacement parts. If you put in your manufacturers name followed by replacement parts you will have several option. (ex. Kitchen Aid replacement parts). Put that in your search bar.
The leaking grease has very little to do with it not going, remove the chrome drip ring (yes it's called a drip ring, it is used to catch most of the drips) and clean it out & wipe around the planetary. The oil is separating out of the food grade grease due to age or lack of use or both. Remove & check the carbon brushes under the side caps on the motor. They are keyed so will only work when installed the correct way. You may find the brushes worn out and in need of replacement. Observe which way they come out, one corner is ground off and that is the key. If that is not the problem then you will need to look under the back cover, sometimes there can be a broken or loose wire there.
Hi HOLMES7.Your groove pin should fit tightly enough in the agitator shaft to remain in place under load.It should require a good hit with a punch to dislodge it or reseat it.So the first thing I’d try is to put it back in place and use a punch to drive it home.If that doesn’t seat it permanently, then you need to replace the groove pin, or if the pin hole is too loose, then the whole agitator shaft assembly Do you have the Parts Manual for your mixer?. If you don’t have the original you can easily download a PDF version from the KA website at (http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home). Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number (in your case, try K45SSW select Parts List (1) and then check to see it this matches your mixer model). Turn to pages 4 & 5, titled: Case, Gearing and Planetary Unit, which provides an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the parts and locate Illus. No. 26, Agitator Shaft Assembly, and Illus. No. 21, Groove pin.If after trying to reset your existing groove pin and that doesn’t work, then these are the parts you may want to replace. As far as parts go, here are five potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com. You should be search for ‘food grade grease’ if you start digging into the transmission. Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping. Finally, here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer.The mixers are different models than yours, but the principles are the same.
Between these three websites and their excellent pictures and descriptions and your Parts List manual, you should now be able to completely disassemble and reassemble your mixer, should you decide to go that route. If you feel troubleshooting and repairing is beyond your capability, then I would seek out a local small appliance repair shop in your area. KA Customer Care can give you names of local KA authorized repair shops in your area, but you can also do an online search to supplement what KA may provide you. Call to explain your circumstances and find out their hourly rate and get an estimate of what they think it would cost to repair your mixer. Also, always obtain three or more estimates – do some comparison shopping. Good luck and have fun. I hope this helps.

oh yes you can.:) pur some wesson oil into the sockets the beaters go into and a little around the button.. Let set a few minutes and work the beaters back and forth as you pull gently. Make sure it is unplugged!!!!!
Quite likely you overloaded the capacity of the motor and it simply overheated. The brushes inside the motor may be burned out/corroded. I suggest putting a light load on it and seeing how it performs. Often, when this kind of thing occurs, a bit of light duty use will get the motor back into good working order. But be careful to not over-tax the unit again. There are several different KitchenAid mixers on the market, some nothing more than ornamental, all the way up to commercial-grade.
Jdphilpo, I would recommend that you first check the Hall Effect sensor
which determines the mixer’s speed. I had this exact problem with my 575 watt 600 series. I went out and bought another Hall sensor for about $13. I
replaced the original sensor and made sure that the connection between the
sensor and control board was nice and snug. My mixer worked as good as new! But
I was curious to know if my original sensor was defective, so I put it back in
mixer and again made sure all of the connections were tight. Guess what?
My original sensor also made my mixer work! There was nothing wrong
with the original Hall Effect sensor except the connection between the control
board and sensor was not tight--unfortunately I didn't check the connection
before I decided to buy another sensor. My guess is that the connection between
the control board and the sensor probably loosens or comes undone over time
from use and vibrations.1. Downloadthe mixer
parts and diagrams from the Kitchenaidwebsiteto see
what the Hall Effect sensor looks like. BTW the part number is 9703312 for my model. 2. You'll need a phillips head screwdriver to open up the
mixer gear case cover. 3. Make sure that the connection between the control board
and sensor is absolutely tight and snug. 4. Also, make sure that the orientation of the sensor is
correct. It's difficult to tell which
way the sensor should be connected because the control board has three prongs
and the sensor can attach facing up or down. After you've made the connection,
run the mixer. If it still doesn't work, disconnect the sensor, reconnect it
with the prongs facing the opposite direction and try it again. I
actually found the right sensor orientation through a little trial and error.
But by going through this trial and error, I also had my Eureka moment when I realized that the
original sensor probably would also work if it were reconnected with correct
orientation. 5. This whole process probably takes less than 10-15 minutes
to perform. 6.Use your common sense
and make sure to unplug the mixer before checking, connecting or disconnecting
