Beater assembly stopped rotating, motor makes "whining" sound

in a word Yes! There are several videos on youtube that go through a full tear down replace gears and re-assembly process. You will also need a prats list for your model (you will need your full model number as the Epi series have had four or five modifications and you must have the right parts)
You can figure some type of modification based on the number of parts list available to you when you go to the site above. the top list is for user manuals the bottom list is for parts lists.
You can repair this for about $60.00 in parts plus some patience and a couple rolls of paper towels, hope this helped

CSB-77 Motor Body Repair - Stick Immersion Blender

Same thing happened to me; the plastic spline broke and now the entire thing is junk. This appears deliberately made not to be repairable, which is too bad. This worked well when it worked, but I do not believe it should've broken this easily, or be irreparable. Replacement motor body is $28-35, may as well just buy a cheaper model and dispose of it when it breaks.

I have a Kitchenaid 550 watt 6 qt. stand mixer model #KB26GIXER. I tried to use it this morning and couldn't get the beater blade to lock in place. Isn't there supposed to be a spring and washer...

There is only one pin on the beater shaft to hold the beater in place.
There is no spring or washer on the shaft.

To Attach Flat Beater,Wire Whip, or Spiral Dough Hook, simply
1. Slip flat beater on beater shaft.

2. Turn beater to right, hooking beater over the pin on shaft.

I'm trying to find replacement beaters for a Hamilton Beach mixer model #019. My beaters are chipped and rusted so I'm not comfortable using them. I've found a couple of places that used to sell them but...

Check on eBay. Sometimes you will find replacements--even new ones. You'll need the actual Model Number off the tag on your mixer (see link where to find that info).

I took out both the electrical brushes while cleaning my KSM90 and I think I re-inserted them incorrectly. I unscrewed each cap and took out the spring and brush, cleaned the female threads, and the male...

Hi REDEN828, yes, you are correct. When you reinstalled them you either misaligned one or both brushes so they are not seated properly on the motor's armature. See the illustration below:
I'd suggest removing them again and making sure the concave contact face rests completely on the armature’s commutator. If you've turned it 90 degrees too much, the brush won’t seat properly and you get no power to the motor.
It would also be helpful to have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website at:
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case use KSM50P (Your KSM90P mixer falls within this manual), and select the last file KSM90PSWW0.pdf (354.08 KB) listed under Parts List (16) and then check to verify this matches your mixer model.
Turn to pages 6 & 7, titled “Motor And Control Parts”, which provides an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer’s electrical components, along with all the parts. Locate Illus No 32, Brush holder assembly that includes #18, 21, 22, 23, & 31 which is the brush holder insert, and Illus. No. 19, brush & Spring assembly respectively. The illustration along with the picture above regarding the orientation of the brushes should get your mixer powered back up and operational. Good luck! I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

10 year old stand mixer Model 4KSM900B. Sounds like it is turning - but beater does not move. It just quit. Help! I hate the throw it out which is what the dealer repair told me to do. Holly

You can find and purchase repair transmission parts from a number of resources on the Internet.

The tech gave you good advice because by the time you pay him to make the repairs, you could have bought a new mixer.

If your mechanically handy, then you can disassemble the mixer and find the failed parts in the transmission. Pay particular attention to the casing to make sure nothing is broken there.
Clean everything up real good to make certain there are no metal fragments that can work their way back into the newly rebuilt transmission. Be sure and order some grease with the new parts as you do not want to reuse the old grease (could be full of metal fragments.).

I've had to rebuild mine a couple of times. It fairly easy if you are mechanically inclined.

Leaking oil where beaters connect

Hi Maureen. Your K45SS needs to be serviced. The old grease and the oil that has separated from the grease must be removed and the unit cleaned. If you, or someone you know, are up to the task, go to and download the Kitchenaid Service Manual. This very thorough manual will assist you with the task at hand and with future repairs.

The replacement grease I recommend is Chevron FM ALC EP-2. This is a "Food Grade" grease which is non-toxic should some drip into your mixer bowl at a later date. The planetary gearing should also be removed, cleaned and regreased.

Go to, click on Customer Care and click on the Manuals button. In the search window, enter your model number thusly, k45sswh and download the parts drawings for your mixer. These drawings will give you an "exploded view" of your mixer and will come in handy if you need to order parts. Mending Shed also sells replacement parts.

Once your mixer is back in service, run the unit for a couple of minutes every week, this will help keep the oil suspended in the grease and extend the life of the grease.

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

Can't get the drive coupling off my Bosch Universal to replace it

I have had my Bosch Universal Mixer with the Blender and Food Processor Attachments since 2005, and I've loved it since the day I got it... that is, until the blender broke while my son was crushing ice to make slushies...

I figured out the "drive coupler" was stripped and needed replacing, but I couldn't figure out how to take apart the "blade assembly" which includes the "drive coupler" part...

My retailer, Pleasant Hill Grain, sent me the following email:

"I am not aware of any printed instructions for removing the old coupling and
replacing with the new. We recommend holding on to the blades with 1 hand and a
towel and using a needle nose pliers to unscrew the old coupling. You would put
the new coupling on in the same manner.
If these instructions do not work, I would suggest contacting the Service
Dept at Kitchen Resources in Utah. Their phone is 800-692-6724."

I still couldn't figure out how to take apart the blade assembly, so I did end up calling the distributor, Kitchen Resources...

Dave, the tech @ Kitchen Resources, answered my call on the first ring...

Once I explained my problem, he started giving me the same instructions Pleasant Hill Grain gave
me... I explained to him that holding the blades tightly wasn't working for me.

As it turned out, holding the blades did not secure the drive shaft because
the drive shaft was broken off INSIDE the blade assembly - which is why I could
not unscrew the old drive coupling part.

Dave's next question revealed the true issue at hand... my Blender Attachment has the blade assembly made of plastic - they switched to plastic
in 2005 because the metal assembly turned black in dishwashers.

Bosch just recently went back to using metal for this part - apparently the
plastic blade assembly didn't hold up.

Kitchen Resources - the U.S. Bosch Distributor - is sending me a new blade
assembly - no charge, he said it's covered under warranty. Woo Hoo!

Best of all, I hadn't yet purchased the replacement drive coupling part, because
I wanted to know how to go about replacing the part before ordering a new part.

With shipping this part would have been a $50+ repair - you have to love
customer service of that caliber!

[Aside: You really don't need to ever put this part in the dishwasher - wash
the inside with by putting hot water and perhaps a little dish detergent inside
the blender and turning it on - rinse the outside under the sink... no
dishwasher needed! ]

Parts needed for Matfer 660 Watts 210412

Heritage Food Service Equipment has parts listed as available.
The motor to shaft coupling will have to be ordered from another stlye motor but will work.
The model to look for is actually listed as Dito-Dean, not Matfer.
