Kitchen Aid Professional 600 rattles

Rattles loudly even at the lowest of speeds. Works fine otherwise. Took it apart and the gears looked fine and unmolested. Works fine otherwise.

I had a rattle under load in one and got rid of most of it by putting a bit of a wave in the washer underneath the small gear that races around inside your planetary hub where the beater goes on. The gearbox is sold as a single unit, no individual parts so if it looks ok and all screws are tight leave it be.

SOURCE: Kitchen aid mixer drops metal shavings in the

Hi REDLACQUER. Sorry to hear about the metal shavings. This is probably not to best way to take iron in your diet... My first thought would be to ask if your mixer is still under warranty. If you’ve had the machine less than one year, then I’d let KA replace your mixer with a new one. However, I suspect like many who seek assistance from FIXYA.com, your mixer is out of warranty, so what can you do?
Have you been able to find exactly where the metal shavings are originating? From the symptoms you describe, it appears that the planetary/agitator shaft assembly may be rubbing against its housing and generating the metal shavings at higher speeds. Have you noticed any increased noise levels/squeaking/screeching when the planetary rotates? It’s also possible that the planetary is out of alignment and not rotating true. Could the agitator shaft been jarred or hit hard during set up or moving in or out of you storage cabinet? Or the shavings could be symptomatic of other internal gear problems, but that would be the least likely scenario as the mixers internal gears are pretty much self-contained.
The good news is that this can be troubleshot and fixed quite easily (OK, maybe with a little effort) by yourself if you are a DITY type person, and feel adventurous. However, before you start to disassemble your mixer, be sure you have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website at: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case, KP2671, and select the last file, KP2671XWH3.pdf (325.07 KB) listed under Parts List (24) (check to verify that it matches your mixer model).
Turn to pages 4 & 5, titled “Case, Gearing and Planetary Unit”, which provides and exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the parts. I suspect your Planetary Assembly, Illus No. 15, is rubbing somewhere against its housing, Lower Gearcase, Illus. No. 24.
To gain access to these pieces you’ll need the following tools: a regular or Phillips screw driver, retaining clip pliers, and a small drift pin punch and a small hammer. You need to remove the Transmission Housing (Illus No. 7) and remove all the lubricating grease from the transmission housing and gears (when removing the grease be on the lookout for shavings in the grease which would indicate excessive gear wear). This will allow you to remove Illus No. 25, 21, 18 & 19, Retaining Clip, Bevel Gear, Retaining Pin and Worm Gear Follower, respectively.
Once you remove the Retaining Pin (Illus. No. 18) the Planetary Assembly can be tapped down through the Lower Gearcase Assembly (Illus. No 24). With the Planetary removed, you can inspect it and the inside of the Lower Gearcase to determine where the shavings originated. Be sure to look closely at the Planetary Gear in the lower gearcase as well as the Agitator Shaft Pinion Gear (Illus. No. 12). That will also identify what parts need to be replaced, which you can order online.
You’ll need to replace the grease you removed with new grease. You should use a food-grade grease that you can order online (although I’ve seen automotive bearing grease used too – your call). Do not try to reuse any original grease as it may have ‘debris’ in it.
Here are five potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com (for grease). You should search for ‘food grade grease’. Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
It can be messy but quite gratifying to diagnose and repair your mixer yourself.
Finally, here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer. The mixers displayed in the links are different KA models, but the principles are the same.

Between these three websites and their excellent pictures and descriptions and your Parts List manual, you should now be able to completely disassemble and reassemble your mixer.
I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

SOURCE: My Kitchen Aid Mixer, Professional 600, model no.

Looking at the diagram here:

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%208212278.pdf

You will see the motor controller Item Number 19. Looks like a pretty simple taks to remove and replace it. there is also a hall effect sensor Itme Number 24 which monitors the motor speed. That might be faulty as well, but my best bet is the controller.

Unfortunately the parts list does not specify the part number for the controller so a call to Kitchenaid is probably required.

SOURCE: i have had my kitchen aid for only 4 month used it

Your best bet on what sounds like an electrical switch problem is to return it for a replacement. The warranty on your product is for one full year. The store where it was purchased should offer a replacement in a snap as long as you have the original receipt. If not, have you registered the product with Kitchen Aid? If so they will replace or repair it at no charge.

Kitchen Aid HDPro 5 quart bowl lift mixer is making clunking, rattle type noise when mixing anything heavier than egg whites.


You are probably going to have to remove the top housing and look and listen while it is running. Does it lose drive when it is being noisy? You need to remove the back cover, the silver band with Kitchen Aid on it and that will expose the 4 screws holding the housing on. Remember fingers and tools OUT while it is plugged in or running. I can't be a lot more help to you, we don't have that model in NZ.

Kitchenaid 600 pro


After many years dealing with Kitchen Aid mixers I purchased a pro 600 for my wife as an early Xmas gift. After just a few usages it started making a clunking noise in the gear housing. I removed the housing and discovered the casting is of very poor tolerances and the main drive assembly was lifting from the torque of the motor and causing the gear assembly to lift out of the casting and skipping on the worm gear. I am sure it is going to happen to many more of these units as the casting area that holds the bearing in is to large obviously an overdue mold in the casting process. Time for a recall Kitchen Aid.

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.

Kitchen aid professional stops spinning


the pro series 600 has a worm gear, a worm follower gear, a bevel gear, and tree bearings the front rear and thrust bearings any of the above will cause the mixer to halt, to operate noisily, or grind, you need to open it up and look under the transmission cover. If it is an older model it could also be the transmission cover if it is a plastic one, My first thoughts is it is the worm follower gear. hope this helps you in the right direction.

I have a 6 qt kitchen aid mixer and the gears look fine all metal, it makes a humming noise but nothing moves. Any suggestions


If you haven't solved this problem yet, I have a couple suggestions.
Take off the motor housing, be VERY careful where the exposed electrical contacts are, then plug it in and turn on the motor with no gears attached. If it spins, cycle through the speeds to make sure they all work, then if they do, revisit your gears. Turn them all by hand and make sure they move easily and smoothly. Make sure the teeth aren't too worn down. I don't know what model you have, but also check anything that holds gears on or in place to make sure they aren't loose or cracked.
If the motor does not spin, look at the brushes (you could start by doing this if you wanted to, since they are far easier to take apart than the motor housing, but my guess is this isn't the problem). If the brushes are worn down to near the spring, buy new ones. If the brushes look fine, then either get real brave and pull open the motor to look for broken or worn out parts, or call an electrical engineer friend, or send it off to kitchenaid or a repair shop.

Kitchen Aid 10 speed 325watts


Some of the gears may have broken or slipped off. You'll need t open it up to see why the shaft from the motor will not spin or you will burn out the motor with the power on trying to make it go. It might be a DIY job if you can see an obvious problem like a slipped gear, otherwise take it to a repair specialist.
