How to replace motor in kitchenaid artisan mixer


Sounds like a worm gear problem to me, it's impossible for the motor (armature) to move far enough to not drive the gear. There are driving pins in the system from fuse gear to paddle.
1) in the fuse gear
2) inside gearbox above planetary joining shaft to bevel gear
3) through planetary and shaft

There is also one joining the little gear inside the planetary to the shaft, doubt you'd break that one though.

Mixer noisey and not going round freely


Your mixer most likely has a stripped gears, or a combination of stripped gears. The 5kpm5ewh is an international model similar to the ksm5. The gearing inside the mixer will be the same, some of the electrical parts may differ.
Your mixer has a nylon worm gear inside, this is the most common gear to strip inside the mixer. I would recommend opening the mixer and inspecting all of the gears before you place an order.

Most likely you will need the worm gear, which is available by itself (http://www.mendingshed.com/kawormgear.html) or you can get it in the whole worm drive pinion gear assembly (http://www.mendingshed.com/kitchenaidgearassy.html) the whole assembly is a lot easier to replace, and will save you a lot of time. You may also need to replace the grease inside your mixer, KitchenAid recommends the Benalene 930-2 food grade grease, it is only available in a 30oz can (http://www.mendingshed.com/kagrease.html) And you will also need to replace the gearbox gasket (http://www.mendingshed.com/mixergasket.html).
To aid you in your repair, here is a link to the KitchenAid service manual (http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/mendingshed/kitchenaidservicemanual.pdf) This will walk you through how to take apart the mixer, replace the gear, grease and gasket, and reassemble the mixer.

Motor clicks every turn


The clicking is probably a small nick in one of the gears, even the smallest chip can cause alot of noise or make the mixer click. Is the beater shaft still turning when you have a load in the mixer (bowl is full)
Or is it just clicking?

If the beater stops turning it is going to be caused by stripped gears, however if it is just clicking this would indicate just a nick in the gear. Either way I would recommend opening the mixer and replacing the damaged gear/gears.

Your mixer is considered a 5 Quart Professional, which means it has the same parts as a KitchenAid 6 quart mixer. The first thing you will want to do is take the mixer apart and disassemble the gearing. You will want to clean off the gears with paper towels and wd-40. Carefully inspect each gear once clean and replace damaged gears.

In the professional mixers when a gear strips you need to replace the grease and housing gasket, this is because the gears are all metal and there may be metal shavings in the grease which could cause the gears to strip again.

The most common gear to go bad in the Professional series mixers is the Worm Follower Gear (9706529). Here is a link to that gear on our website: http://www.mendingshed.com/wormfollower.html

Also, here is a link to the service manual for the mixer, this will aid you in taking the mixer apart and putting it back together correctly. http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/mendingshed/kitchenaid6qtservicemanual.pdf

Kitchen Aid 550 Pro Mixer New Worm Gear and Worm Gear Follower Issue


It would be helpful to get the model number and serial number off of the bottom of the mixer. This will help determine if the gearing has changed at all.

Usually when a mixer is making a lot of noise after replacing the gears we can find a small nick or gouge in the gear. even the smallest damage can cause these mixers to make a lot of noise. Also if you have an older mixer there was a change in the worm gear from 53 teeth to 60 teeth on the gear. If your mixer originally took a 53 tooth gear, and you replaced it with the 60 tooth gear it will make a lot of noise like you are describing.

So first check your serial number, if the first 4 digits are after WL45 your mixer would have a 60 tooth gear, however if it is a WL44 or before you would have originally had a 53 tooth gear and this is what is causing the loud noise.

If your mixer is new enough that it took the 60 tooth gear, then take the mixer apart, clean and remove all gears, clean them off with wd-40 and inspect closely, even the smallest chip can cause a ton of noise.

If you have any questions, or you cannot find the problem feel free to contact us at The Mending Shed.

Replaced planetary gear and now makes a ticking sound


First what model number? you may not have ordered the correct part number for your mixer, second how old is your mixer, the new part may have to just work itself in due to wear on the center gear that the planetary gear turns inside of, if your mixer is relativity new but you have used it a lot (daily) it may be the same problem, wear on the center gear, if the planetary gear was stripped when you replaced it and you did not clean all the old grease out before you replaced it you may be hearing shards of metal grinding away at your old and new gear which means that you will have to replace both soon again, Hope that this gives you some help on the problem, Please let us know.

The motor is making a grinding noise. The mixer still works, it just sounds weird.


I have fixed many mixers with the same problem. The only part that consistently wears out
is the Worm Gear Follower located inside the Transmission housing. The teeth are wearing out
and becoming chipped. The grinding noises you hear are made by the Worm Gear and the
Follower. As time goes on, the metal filings from the damaged follower will eventually destroy the Follower and the Planetary will stop rotating.
Sooner or later that gear need to be replaced. Also remember to use new Grease after
a new gear replacement (metal filings from the old gear will damage your new gear)

I have a KP26M1XPm pro series 6 qt 575 watt stand mixer bought in Feb 2006. For some time it made a "knocking" sound as it mixed large heavy jobs. It was not a grinding sound but a knock as the...


I would be inclined to replace the broken/worn gear and only any other bearings/bushes that show wear, which is probably none. I would remove any contaminated grease (it usually remains close to the failure point) and add more grease if necessary. The gear is a fuse gear and designed weaker to fail if the machine is overloaded so the gear that runs on it is unlikely to be damaged.

Do th gears in a kitchenaid mixer need oil


Hi SHIRLAFINK, you do not need to 'oil' the transmission gears on a KA mixer. Your KA mixer comes with enough grease to 'last a lifetime' - whatever that means?

Depending on the age of your mixer and how heavily you use it, there may be a time when you might want to replace the grease, but that period is usually measured in years of useage.

Of course if one of the gears strips or breaks, you will need to replace all the grease when you replace the broken gear. Attempting to use salvaged grease jeopardized the remaining gears if pieces of metal or plastic debris are suspended in the old grease.

I hope this helps - hslincoln, Burke, VA
