Mixer leaking oil is it possible some got into my cookie batter


It's pretty impossible to say for sure without having been there to witness it, but it seems possible that it happened. Some mechanical oils and greases are all-natural and wouldn't harm you if you ate a little of them, but that's not something that KitchenAid would ever tell you. As frustrating as it is, I for one would probably choose the safe route and make a new batch.

My K45SS is leaking some kind of oil or grease from the part of the mixer above where the mixer part attaches. It otherwise seems to be functioning fine.


its gear oil from the gear box that the motor turns to make the beaters turn,you need to replace the seals or keep adding food grade oil before you dry out the gearbox and ruin it

K45ss mixer works fine except when whipping cream there are small black specs appearing in the bowl that probably have gone unnoticed with darker mixtures. I suspect some type of oil leak


Yes this is probably a oil leak. it can come from two possible location one of which can come from the transmission gasket that goes around the mixers center seem, if this is broken, worn or improperly seated it will need replacement. part number for the transmission gasket is 4162324. another possible location is around the cirrcular mixing gear at the front of the machine. if the seal inside the unit are damaged or worn this can cause oil to leak striaght down into the very food you are preparing. part number for the seals are 3180163. there are 4 of them, and they would require taking apart the whole unit. hope this helps.

Thanks

My kitchen aid mixer is leaking what seems to be a brown liq. maybe oil where the paddle inserts into the mixer.


This is another complaint about a Kitchenaid Standmixer, model K45SS. It leaks oil, out of the 1 year warranty period. Called the company. Got the standard line: Mixer must be run 2-3 minutes a week to avoid leaks. Nothing appears in writing about it in their manual. Oil leaks into food are dangerous. Please report these to the Consumer Products Safety Commission. After calling their service center a second time, after seeing all the complaints on this board, I informed them of my report to the CSSC. They said they would send a "return repair kit". I could send it in for repairs and if it was determined to be "defective" they would pay for the repair. The representative would not state that this is, in fact a "defect" and that I would be charged to have it inspected and repaired if it was not. Cost, anywhere from 50 to 150. I would be charged to ship it back if it wasn't defective and I decide not to have it repaired.

Oil Leak


There are screws under that metallic ring on the mixer head. Gently remove the metalic ring by pushing down on its edge with a screwdriver. Once the ring is removed the screws are exposed. Tighten each one and then again to make sure they are snug. If this doesn't work, you need a new grease gasket. Good luck.

K45SS leaks lubricant


I went to Kitchen Aid'sKitchen Aid's web site and had an on line chat with a tect support person name Jessica. She told me that if the mixer is not used a small of oil will leak out. to fix the problem you must run the mixer for a few minutes every month or so. This seems to work.

This kind of unit are lubricated with grase paste. If the unit stays inactive for a long time, or if the motor and gears are overheating the grease paste gets melted into thin oil, and that will cause the leak.
The oil leak is usually coming from the gear box inside the appliance.
To fix the problem the unit must be taken apart, and cleaned. After this step, there is need to spread again the grease, using special foodsafe grease paste.
Disassemblying the gear box is not that easy, you will need previous experience and a gear puller to do the job properly and safely.
This appliances are also held with security screws to prevent the users from taking apart the unit, and can only be disassembled using a Security screwdriver tip.

The grease can be purchased here, check at the bottom of the page: Kenwood chef food mixer Grease.
