I don't know how much gear oil nor what type of gear oil. But most likely anywhere you can get a-hold of gear oil... use what you can get. I would try restaurant supplies. In my city there is a place called Case & Drum that sells anything from the petroleum industry.

My mixer simply does not turn on and has an oil leak. How do I troubleshoot and fix?


Check for circuits through cable, switch and field windings. While checking the fields check that your carbon brushes aren't worn out. Remove the chrome drip ring from around the planetary (it just taps off) and clean the oil out. If you are feeling brave you can knock the planetary pin out that connects it to the driving shaft and lever the planetary off. Wipe the excess oil out of there remembering that the gear does need a smear of grease remaining. The oil is the grease in the gearbox breaking down with age, eventually you will need to open the gearbox, remove the old grease & replace it. The oil itself is harmless as the grease is food grade so it's not a petroleum product.

Loud squeek when beginning mixing with KitchenAid bowl-lift stand mixer does it need oiling?


Sounds like it needs disassembly and oiling the rear bearing and cleaning out the front gearbox and refilling with grease. Mendingshed.com has the service manuals for download.

How to pull auger drive shaft for Hobart 4346 mixer-grinder?


The oil seal is the resistance you feel. take a soft mallet or hammer with a soft drift and gently but firmly tap the stub shaft and it will drive out the oil seal in the hopper direction.The lower skirt of the tapered bearing is what contacts the seal so go slow.
Worked for me.

I dont know what else to add other then the oil came out of the mixer when i moved and i do not know what type of oil to put back in it and where do i put it in to the mixer on my kitchen aid mixer


Wipe the oil off and carry on. Over time the gearbox grease breaks down and oil separates from the grease solids. Eventually the gearbox will need to be repacked with new grease. Don't worry about a drip or two in a cake, it's food grade grease so harmless.

OIL IS LEAKING OUT OF THE HEAD INTO FOOD BOWL. KITCHENAID SAID OK, FOOD GRADE OIL! I DON'T LIKE BLACK OILY CAKE OR COOKIES? CAN YOU HELP US TO FIX OURSELVES.


Kitchenaid says to run the machine on 'high' long enough to heat the gearbox well and then turn the machine upside down and let it cool.

What happens is when you don't use your mixer a lot the grease in the gearbox will separate into oil and thicker grease. Warming it and turning it upside down is supposed to mix all the grease together again and allow it to flow to the top of the gearbox.

Give it a try, check back if you get no satisfaction and we'll get you started on changing your grease.

When moving the mixer tiped over in the trunk and oil leaked out. It is making a grinding sound at times when mixing thicker things. I need to know what kind of oil to use and where to put it. Thank you....


First off -- if it's still under warrantee, you'll want to go to kitchenaid.com and find the nearest service center. The next thing I say starts with "void the warrantee" steps. :)

It's very simple to open a stand mixer to see if you've got a simple problem or a bad one.

Unplug it.

Follow the aluminum "Kitchen Aid" band to the back of the unit, there's one main screw. Remove this, and set it aside with the band which should come right off at this point.

Now, there should be two screws on each side of the unit where the band used to be. Remove each of these. They're all identical, so no worries if you mix them up.

Now you can lift the top off of the unit and see inside. The motor is at the back of the unit, the gear box at the front is where the oil is coming from. Try (GENTLY) to tighten the screws that hold the gearbox together. With a little luck, the gearbox screws had come loose and it was oozing oil out through the seals. If they're all firm, then you've got more serious problems and you'll want to find a service center for it.

If the leak was just that the gearbox housing was loose, then you can open it up and see the grease that's inside. It's very thick grease, not liquid oil at normal temperatures, but I don't know what type of grease it actually is in yours.

The grinding sound you describe makes me think you've broken or dislodged the bearing chase though, and you've got bits of metal and/or small (1 - 2 mm diameter) bearings loose in the gearbox.

Good luck!
