My kitchen aid mixer is leaking oil


This seems to be a fairly common problem. If you are handy you can replace the transmission case gasket yourself. (Take pictures as you dissassemble it) and expect to get greasy. The website http://www.mendingshed.com/mixergasket.html has the gasket for the 4.5 and 5 quart model. You did not specify what you have. The gasket is only $3.50 plus S&H. They also have a downloadable PDF service manual which is very helpful. Good Luck!

Oil leak


instead of putting a gasket on tell him to take out all of the old grease out that is what has broken down and turning into oil causing a leak and if he can repace the seal around the agitator shaft replace the old grease with a high temp bearing grease or a good quality lithium grease

Leaks oil when mixing. the area where you put the beaters leaks a small amount of oil only when mixing.


The grease inside has liquefied instead of being a paste. This can happen by over heating the mixer, keeping near a heat source or a bad gasket. I suggest getting it repacked with grease and replacing the gasket before you start to ruin the gears.

Also the grease although not something you'd consider edible is food safe.

My kitchenaid mixer was stored on its side and leaked oil. I don't dare use it now. Can I replace the oil myself? There are no mixer repair centers anywhere near me.


your oil leaking is cause by a bad gasket or the gasket isn't seated properly. you can purchase this gasket but replacing it does require knowledge of the unit. part number for the gasket is 4162324. the grease can be purchased locally at any car parts dealer. generally a thicker paste type grease is used inside these units, but the original part number for the grease is 4160588 and comes in a container with enough grease for 5-8 mixers.hope this helps

Thanks

Will not spin dry


Hi,
If your washer won't spin, check these:

It doesn't pump or spin If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:



  • If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.

  • If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

It pumps, but doesn't spin If your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these:



  • The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

  • The motor coupler may be broken. Many Whirlpool®-manufactured washers use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. You may need to replace it.

  • A belt may be broken. Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)

  • The clutch may be worn. If your washer is a GE, it may use a clutch to come up to the proper spin speed. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the unit from spinning well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.

  • The drive motor may be defective. Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.

  • The transmission may not be shifting properly. Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may drain the water but not spin. This is a complex system, if your washer has a shifter problem, you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.

  • The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. Call a qualified appliance repair technician.

It spins only with the lid closed For safety, washing machines are made so that they spin only with the lid closed. The lid switch prevents the spinning action when the lid is up.

BMW door seal?


make sure you have the new one on hand also the glue you can pick up the glue at a local autoparts store. Now lay the new door seal out in the sun while you are taking the out one off so that its warm and stretches easy, once the old one is off clean the railing that holds the gasket with rubbing alcohol on a rag, then apply the glue as you put on the gasket
