How to replace motor in kitchenaid artisan mixer


Sounds like a worm gear problem to me, it's impossible for the motor (armature) to move far enough to not drive the gear. There are driving pins in the system from fuse gear to paddle.
1) in the fuse gear
2) inside gearbox above planetary joining shaft to bevel gear
3) through planetary and shaft

There is also one joining the little gear inside the planetary to the shaft, doubt you'd break that one though.

Planetary assembly low and beater not locking


Edward, it sounds like your planetary is starting to separate.Where the center shaft connects to the planetary commonly separates, the pieces are machine pressed together, and can separate, usually your beater, and planetary plate will just fall off into the mixer, while the center shaft stays up inside the mixer with the gears on it.

What you will need to do is buy a new planetary assembly, you do also have the option to have it pressed back together by a machinist, but it is usually cheaper just to buy a new planetary. According to your model number you have a Onyx Black mixer, here is a link to the replacement planetary on our website: http://www.mendingshed.com/9708176.html

That should solve your problem, also here is a link to the service manual in case you need any help taking the mixer apart: http://ep.yimg.com/ty/cdn/mendingshed/kitchenaid6qtservicemanual.pdf

And of course, if you need any help you can call us and speak with a KitchenAid technician over the phone

Thank you,

Professional 600 575 watts beater shaft is loose


If the beater shaft that you attach the beater to is loose in it's housing, then you will need a new planetary for your mixer, it is a relatively easy fix to make, but you will have to order the part before you can effect a fix.


The 600 model has the center shaft attached to the planetary by means of a heat pressure press in. Which means that when the colored rotating part starts to come loose that you have to replace the whole planetary piecec994bebd-6a21-41c8-821e-a90ec9e3ea14.jpg
the piece that the beater attaches to is called the agitator shaft and it will need to be removed and put on to the new planetary when you install the new one. If the agitator is actually the piece that is loose then you need a gear at the top, a pin underneath of the gear, or a snap ring that holds the shaft together in the planetary housing. Go to the kitchenaid address listed here>> http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/product_literature/search.jsp?siteCd=KAD
when the page opens look on the left side of page and fill in the proper model number (it is on the bottom of your mixer on a white tag), the page will give several choices go to the parts list section and click on that choice for your model number, (you will need the proper part number to order the correct color for your mixer, by following the parts list diagram you will see that there is a very understandable process that you can follow to open up the mixer and replace the planetary, hope that this helps, let us know if you need assistance or if this answered your question

KP26M1XMR beater shaft falls off


The beater shaft on the 6 quart mixers is part of the planetary assembly. The planetary and center shaft are pressed together, and sometimes they will come apart. The only way to fix this is to replace the planetary or you can have the planetary machine pressed back together.

It is a lot cheaper and less expensive to just replace the planetary. Here is a link to the Planetary Assembly on our website. http://www.mendingshed.com/9708662.html

The top part of my mixer is sitting about 1/4 inch lower than it should. It's placing the beater too low in the bowl and therefore won't mix. (I tried to whip up some whipping cream but it pushes...


Get a copy of the Repair Part List for your model at Kitchenaid.com
Download the following Kitchenaid Service Manual:
http://www.kitchenaidparts.be/centers/servicemanual/mixer.pdf

It covers several models including yours.
1. Check/Adjust the Flat Beater to Bowl Clearance:

Turn screw (A) SLIGHTLY counter clockwise (left) to raise the flat

beater or clockwise (right) to lower the flat beater
2. Check the Beater Shaft (Agitator Shaft) making sure the Retaining ring
is flushed with the surface of the Planetary Assembly
Constant Pulling and Removal of the beaters can cause the Agitator shaft to move
3. If the above two still don't solve your problem, follow the service manual
directions to disassemble the Planetary Assembly and check for loose screws

The rotating head on the mixer keeps falling off. how do you get it to stay on? it comes off when were mixing.


The Planetary plate comes attached to the shaft from the factory. It is not supposed to get
loose and come apart but it often does due to the mixer's vibrations and the user's constant
attaching and removals of the flat beater, wire whip or dough hook onto the beater shaft.
Try to remove the Planetary plate first : Gently rock it from side to side while pulling on it
to separate from the shaft. Notice the groves on both the shaft and inside the planetary
housing. That is how they are attached to one another at the factory (just friction, no screws
or pins). Now for a permanent solution:
Take a trip to Home Depot or Ace hardware and buy the J-B Industro Weld Compound
(Not the 5 minute type). Mix an equal amount from both tubes (Black and Red). Use a Q-Tip
and apply a thin layer of the mixture on both the shaft (grooved section) and inside the
planetary housing. Now re-attach the planetary plate to the shaft. Use a long strip of duct tape
to hold the plate in place (to prevent it from falling back out). Allow the epoxy to dry overnight
or at least for 8 hours.
The Planetary assembly is now permanently attached to the shaft of the mixer.

Hobart N-50 Mixer beater attachment spins but has no resistance


Sounds like the shear pin on the planetary shaft has sheared off. Has the mixer been subjected to a heavy load. Remove the planetary and see if the shear pin is intact otherwise you may have to open up the transmission.
