I can't figure out how to get a broken shear pin out. I have a new pin.

I can/t reach down in there to remove/replace. Take the bottom out of the machine? Help please, and thanks.

    I do have pin. Existing appears to be broken off, one side. Works but doubt it will continue for long with 1/2 pin.

    This post/shaft is too tall to be able to reach, remove existing broken pin and replace. This KitchenAid A-9 is KCG200WH1. Should I take the bottom of the machine off, then will it pull out from below? Frustrating. I have seen pictures of the pin as it should be, but the shaft doesn't look as tall as mine. Both burrs are out. The top burr has a part, looks like a black umbrella. Today the mill is running really well, beautiful grounds that look like ground coffee from a can. However, I can disassemble again, take a picture. I figure it will soon start spraying grounds and screaming if I don't replace that pin. Thanks.

SOURCE: Broken shear pin in kitchenaid A9 Coffee Grinder

I was able to find 3/32 x 1/2 inch spring pins at a local hardware for 13 cents each. They may not last as long, but at the price I can replace as needed.

I also had to disassemble twice; I didn't notice that a portion of the old pin was wedged in the underside of the burr. When I put it back together the first time, the new pin rested on the old fragment and pressed the burrs too close together. On the coarsest possible setting, I got coffee powder!

Final note: The nut for the cap over the burrs is reverse-threaded...use a wrench on top, and a flat-blade screw driver in the slot at the bottom of the motor shaft.

Z model. Won't steer to the right, reverse or move forward. What's wrong?

Sounds like you have a broken shear pin in either your wheels or in your drive pulleys See if you can reach up where the drive pulleys are and try to turn them by hand. If they turn but not the wheels then you know you have a broken shear pin. Do not try to run the engine and do this for safety reasons.

Reach/remove pin.

Patricia, I am not sure which model you have old or new. I have the old one built in the 30's. I had to replace the shear pin and the carbon brushes for the motor. I took the bottom off which has a ball bearing resting loosely in a cavity in the bottom plate. Don't lose it. Now the brushes I found at an ace hardware. Take the old ones to compare. I think there was a bracket holding the brushes and rotor in. Once the rotor was out you could get the brushes out. Putting the brushes in required figuring out how to keep the brushes retracted. I used a piece of paper and used it hold them back while sliding in the rotor. Once in pull the paper out.
Now the shear pin needs to be in to prevent damage to the grinder in case what you are grinding has something too hard to grind like a small rock, I think if you push up on the rotor when the bottom plate is off or pulling up on the shaft it might give enough clearance to put the shear pin in. It sits very close to the bottom of the shaft so it can be fun trying to line it up. I used needle nose pliers to hold the pin just right while pulling up on the shaft. I bought the shear pin off of ebay

Cant get the key to start truck or go into acc postion to remove

Sounds like a couple waffers have broken inside and 1 of them is stuck preventing the cylinder from turning. The waffer is above the shear line.

You will need to remove the bottom cover of the instrument dash to access the ignition cylinder. On the bottom of the cylinder there will be a hole. When the cylinder is in the ACC position, it will provide an opening in that hole so you can depress the lock pin. When the pin is depressed you simply pull out the ignition cylinder as a whole. Since you cannot get to ACC you will need to drill into the little hole until you reach the pin. Then you will have to drill the pin too. After that it will slide right out.

A new ignition cylinder with new keys can be picked up for about $30 on ebay. You could take the new one to a locksmith and have them rekey it to your old keys for about $30.

How to change shear pin

With the motor OFF, the shaft shouldn't rotate, so you should be able to rotate the auger by hand until the holes line up.

Fusion rolls in park

Only one thing can cause this, the pin that locks the transmission when shifted to park position is broken/sheared off, the bottom pan of the transmission must be removed and the broken park pin (referred to as the Park Pawl pin) replaced

Why isnt my rotor button turning

Possibly a sheared roll pin on the distributor or the gear is striped. Take the Distributor cap off with wires attached if there is room to move it out of the way. There should be a bolt at the bottom with a bracket, remove the bolt and bracket and remove the distributor, check the roll pin and gear to make srure there in proper condition. Both ends of the roll pin can be there but still sheared. Check also but hold the rotor button and turning the gear to make sure that the shaft is not broken. Gear is at the bottom.

Handle pin broke

this happened to mine while still under warranty, eventually the repair man brought a small replacement part which took 5 minutes to fix, but not before a previous engineer had ordered a complete new door. you should be able to get the part ordered, and it would be easy to replace yourself. Now my FP oven has broken down again
