You can use a slightly smaller punch or I have filed the point off a nail and used it to drive the pin out.

Runs but doesn't turn. Worm gear is not broken.


Something must be broken if the motor is turning and the planetary is not. It will be one of the following, we will start from the first point of contact with the armature
1) Worm gear broken (fuse gear) you say no teeth broken
2) Worm gear not broken but whole unbroken plastic part not gripping aluminium boss
3) Pin through worm gear broken or missing
4) Pin through centre (or bevel) gear broken or missing
5) Pin through small gear in planetary broken or missing
6) Pin through planetary hub centre shaft broken or missing

The most common ones in order of likelihood are, 1, 2, 3 and 6

It probably is the worm gear but you must remove the planetary roll pin to be able to split the gearcase. You will find another smaller roll pin in the worm gear. Your speed lever problem will be either a loose screw that it pivots on or the lever is bent. Hammer and correct size punch is only solution for those roll pins. Bigger hammer sometimes helps.

Kitchenaid Mixer Planetary becomes sluggish when met with resistance.


The problem will be with the worm gear, if the gear is not stripped then check that the locating pin for the worm gear is not broken or missing. Occasionally the plastic gear can detach from the aluminium boss between plastic and shaft. The worm gear is the 99.9% place where drive can slip. Afterthought, I suppose the planetary pin is not missing or broken??

Removing worm follower gear in a Kitchenaid Professional 600 mixer


You need to drive the pin out with a punch. The pin should not be crimped on both ends, but could have been damaged if the gears stripped out.


Page 6 of the service manual walks you through removing the worm follower gear and dropping the planetary. Here is a link to the service manual: http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/mendingshed/kitchenaid6qtservicemanual.pdf

Can't remove gear with pin and hammer


find a c-clamp large enough to press the pin out. The only alternative is to disassemble the entire gear and use a hydraulic press. The problem with roll-pins and 'keepers' is that they are meant to fit tightly, and, like gears on auto axles, are pressed into place at the factory. Unfortunately, the average consumer doesn't have a large industrial facility in the backyard, so improvisations must be made. C-clamps, or even an appropriate GEAR PULLER may do the trick.

Removing axels


you first have to remove the pin in the middle of the spider gears.. there is a little 5/16 bolt holding pin in (sometimes the pin breaks you'll need a magnet to remove rest of the pin)

I have a Kitchenaid Professional 6 Stand- up mixer. I'm attempting to replace the Worm follower gear that drives the main planetary drive shaft, but cannot figure out how to remove the original. Please...


hi

there is a ring clamp on top of the main worm follower gear on the drive shaft. you might not see it due to the grease.

you need to get one of those weird little pliers with points on them to spread the ring clamp to remove it. Then the gear is just friction fit on the shaft...it's pretty tight. I carefully used a screwdriver to slowly separate the main follower gear from the lower gear and it goes up the shaft....

after a bit you can wiggle the follower gear by hand and it will come up. Then you can see there is a pin holding the drive gear underneath it in place. The pin in my mixer was actually bent (must have been some tough dough).

then you reverse the process to put the gear back on -- except that the top follower gear has to go on the pin in the right orientation or the ring clamp won't fit.

buy your parts from mendingshed.com

hope it helps.
