SOURCE: Grinding noise when running.

It very likely sounds like a plastic gear that is worn. If this is the case, then a replacement is very likely stocked by the manufacturer only.

I advise opening the unit to identify which one you need, then 'phone the manufacturer with the make model and year of the product.

If they say they do not stock it - then I'm afraid that's as far as you can go with this.

You'd have to run a power test on the motor to know if it needs replacement, but I'm sure some parts could use lubrication after all these years, so it might just do the trick if you do that. Sometimes motor windings can short slightly, and it's hard to tell unless you have special devices to measure the motor's efficiency.
I think you're on the right track, but if you lubricate it good, possibly that will get it working 100% again.
If the lubrication doesn't work, I suppose the motor would be the prime suspect.
Anyway, good luck, and hope this helps.

Hi,

You have to open the kitchen aid to find out the exact problem.Mostly the motor will not be a problem.
In many of the Kitchen Aid model the switch is the problem.Loose connection will cause this issue.If u have a humming noise noise but it doesn't work then motor coil has gone bad.If no noise switch has gone bad.So replace it accordingly.

Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

My Kitchen Aid Pro5 squeals when it's running. I may have overheated it when mixing bread dough. It seems to be running okay. It just makes a very high-pitched noise now. What can I do to fix this?


Get a Copy of the Repair Part List of your model from Kitchenaid.com.
Most likely it is the Worm Gear (17) grinding at low speed the Worm Gear Follower.(19)
You don't have to replace it now, but it is best to open the Transmission Housing and
inspect all the gears conditions. Clear all the grease to expose them. The Bevel
Gear (21) sits right on top of the Worm Gear Follower. (See Repair Part List)
If its teeth look sharp and all metal shiny, then that is the source of your noises.
Eventually, all the teeth will be chewed away and the planetary assembly will stop turning.

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

My kitchen aid mixer motor is running but the blades are not turning


jpa4 - If the motor's running but the mixer blade (agitator) won't turn, then you've had a mechanical failure in the transmission box or planetary gear assembly of your mixer. The inspection and troubleshooting of the transmission is a DITY capability, particularly if your mixer is out of warranty. Just be sure to have the correct Part List manual around when you start to disassemble your mixer. If you're lacking one, you can download it from the KA website. Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, and then select Parts List file. You can check the page titled 'Case, Gearing & Planetary Unit, for the disassembly, troubleshooting, and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the parts. It can be messy but gratifying. Once apart you can check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the gears, etc. Good hunting... I hope this helps - Howard, Burke, VA

Leaking oil from the main part. Kitchen aid mixer, only used a few times a year


Leaking of oil in a stand mixer is not necessarily indicative of a large problem.

Kitchenaid stand mixers are overpacked with oil to last the lifetime of the motor. If the motor sits idle for some time (is not used), the oil may begin to drip from the gears and settle. Oil leakage may primarily be seen from around the beater shaft or planetary action.

A stand mixer can lose up to a 1/4 cup of oil before it needs to be serviced.

It is recommended to run the mixer on speed 10 for 2 minutes in order to redistribute oil back into the motor. In order to prevent future occurences, this is recommended to be done every 3 weeks if mixer is not being used.

Kitchen Aid Mixer has a sound but it doesn't have power to mix


Hi. Goto www.mendingshed.com and download the free Kitchenaid Service Manual.

You may have overloaded the mixer with bread or cookie dough, causing internal damage to the gears.

If you plan to do the repair yourself, you might also consider removing the old grease and oil. Remove, clean and regrease the planetary gear assembly as well. This will add years of life to your mixer.

Regrease with Chevron FM ALC EP-2 product.

Replacement parts for Wolfgang Puck stand up mixer


Very close; stand mixer parts (included accessories and manual only) can be accessed from this page:
http://www.wpcookware.com/categories.asp?cat=32
Just select your mixer's part number (located on a sticker inside the base) and click the link for a list of available parts. You will have to create an account to see anything useful, but all they ask for is your name, a password and an email address. When adding items to your shopping cart, be sure to check the 'Select Item' box. The ordering page will ask for the usual info. Prices are reasonable, but beware the shipping cost!
