Question about Food Mixers
Mixer works well and looks new but starting to leak oil and getting a bit noisy. Would it be a gear or gasket problem? The model is #K45SS and wondering if parts would still be available. Appreciate any info you could give!
Yes there are still pars avalible. the model will change but the internal parts are the same for the most part. there are screws on the back of the mixer. two on the metal band and one on the top of the motor houseing. open the mixer up you may want to disconect it from the base of the stand. to do this. see where greese is comming from. i dont think that it has a gasket you will see the gears and lots of grease you can take you finger and re smear the grease on the gears. but unfortunatly you may never get rid of the new noise. mine has been grinding for years. i use it 2 to 3 time a week. it works fine except for the noise which to me is not a big deal. if you need any parts you can get them from kitchen aid I hade to replace a gear once. (making to much pasta)
but they are easy to replace.
