Remove the chrome drip ring by knocking it downwards with a flat screwdriver and a hammer.....carefully. Then you can get a couple of flat screwdrivers in as levers between the now visible screw heads and the planetary.

SOURCE: How to completely dismantle a Hobart N50 or KitchenAid Model G

If you only want to service the unit and not open the case, you can add grease through the gear shifter plate opening once you remove it. if you have a grease gun with a flex nozzle that's a bonus.
If not it is a messy job. Keep lots of paper towels at hand and use a narrow spatula to get the grease inside. Get as much in as you possibly can.

To remove planetary, with pin removed, spray a bit of wd-40 or other penetrating oil into where the pin came out of let it penetrate for a few minutes. Plan-A Take two screwdrivers and gently try to pry the planetary away from the body of the mixer. Plan-B Add a bit more lubricant to the shaft pin area and install a beater, then try prying with one screwdriver while putting downward pressure on the beater, alternate prying on both sides of planetary. Excessive force at the planetary top can/will crack it as it is a molded piece of metal. If you found this solution helpfull, please rate it. Good luck.

SOURCE: HOW DO YOU REMOVE THE PLANETARY ON A KITCHENAID

Hi DAVE, Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! The inspection and troubleshooting of the inside of your mixer is a DITY capability, particularly if your mixer is out of warranty. Just be sure to have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case: KP26M1, and select one of the first two files listed under Parts List (47) (The first file, KP26M1XAZ4.pdf (304.18 KB), is for a -4 series model and the second file, KP26M1XAZ5.pdf (724.41 KB) is for a -5 series with slightly different insides, so make sure you have the correct Parts List manual.) (For the purpose of this solution I will use the 5 Series Parts manual. Substitute accordingly if you have a 4 Series 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.
(1) Remove your KA Decorative Trim Band (Illus No. 3) by removing one (1) screw (Illus No. 22).
(2) Remove the four (4) head cover screws (Illus No 14) and lift of the mixer head cover (Gearcase Motor Housing top, Illus No. 1).
(3) Next, remove the two (2) screws (Illus. No. 14) securing your (Speed) Control Assembly (Ilus. No. 19) so you can move the Control Assembly out of the way. This will allow you better access to the Transmission Housing (Illus. No. 4).
(4) Remove the four (4) Transmission Housing screws (Illus. No. 14). Carefully lift the Transmission Housing off the base. The Transmission Cover Gasket (Illus. No. 6) may come off with the Hosuing or remain on the base. (Recommend reordering a new gasket if damaged)
(5) Remove all grease from inside the transmission cover and off all your gears. (This is the messy/fun part. While cleaning away the current grease, be sure to be keep and eye out for metal ‘filings’ that may be suspended in the grease.
(6) Remove the Worm Gear drive assembly (Illus. Nos. 16, 17, and 18) and set aside.
(7) Remove Retaining Clip (Illus. No. 7) from the Planetary shaft.
(8) Remove (lift up) the Bevel Gear (Illus. No. 8) from the Planetary shaft. This may require a little friendly persuasion, but it should eventually slide off the shaft exposing the Retaining Pin (Illus. No. 9).
(9) Remove the Retaining Pin. It should come out easily in either direction.
(10)You can remove the Worm Gear Follower (Illus. No. 10) but once the retaining pin is removed, you should be able to push the Planetary Assembly (Illus. No. 28) down through the Lower Center Bearing (Illus. No. 12). A few taps with a soft faced mallet may be required.
You now have access to the Planetary gear and Agitator Shaft Assembly (Illus. No. 34). Apply the same techniques to remove/replace any components from the Agitator shaft.
Assemble in reverse order above.

I have a Hobart Kitchenaid K45SS mixer and want to know how to remove the agitator shaft from the planetary so I can paint the planetary.


To do this, the whole planetary news to be removed. Use a light hammer and 5/32" pin punch to drive out the pin holding the planetary in place. Then use two flat-blade screwdrivers placed on opposite spots under the planetary and push down on the screwdriver's handles. This will force the planetary up and off the central drive shaft.

Now you can remove the agitator drive shaft which is held on (depending upon the age of your mixer) by a screw or ring atop the gear at the end of the shaft.

Re-assembly is the reverse process. Be careful to line up the pin''s hole in the planetary with that in the drive shaft so that the pin can be driven back in place.

How do I replace the speed control lever on a kitchenAid artisan mixer


Remove back cap, remove white wire and black wire from lower corner of speed control plate, both on same side on adjacent terminals. Remove the gasket thing at the back as well.
Remove chrome drip ring from around planetary, knock pin out of planetary and remove the planetary.
Flip upside down on a towel and remove pedestal by taking out hinge pin (1 locking screw from underneath inside pedestal)
Remove all screws from bottom side of gearcase, 5 around planetaty, 2 in the middle and 2 at the back.
You can now seaparate the gearcases to get to the speed control lever which is held on by 1 screw.

To lube the planetary you take off the drip ring and knock out the pin that retains the planetary to lube the planetary gear. If you want to do the gearbox you need to continue and split the gear cases. Back cover off and 9 case screws. That's it, you are in where all the grease is.

How to remove stuck bevel gear off planetary shaft in KitchenAid 6qt professional mixer


That should just lift off, I'm not familiar with your particular model but all the bevel gears I have seen just drop onto a pin that is just a push fit through a hole in the shaft.

Kitchenaid mixer leaking oil


Get a copy of the Repair Part List for your model at Kitchenaid.com
Grease inside the Planetary Assembly (the shaft is tight fit to the Planetary
plate at the factory and is not designed to be taken apart, so do not use
any hard object such as a screwdriver to separate them) over times can
turn to liquid and leak down the bowl. Removing the Planetary assembly
and adding Kitchenaid Food Grade Grease is not a task for a novice.
To properly remove the Planetary Assembly, you must work from inside
the Transmission Housing: Remove in this order: Retaining Clip(25), Bevel Gear(21),
Retaining Pin(18), Worm Follower Gear(19). Use a soft mallet to tap out the Shaft
of the Planetary Assembly(15). Re-assemble it in the reverse order.
Note: The Bevel Gear is extremely tightly fit on the shaft, and a pin punch
must be used to remove from the shaft.

How do you take apart the KitchenAid Mixer K5SS to get at the gears? The motor runs but the beater doesn't go around. I have an exploded view, but it isn't clear how to begin disassembling the planetary.


It quick terms, first remove the head. Take off the band, this is where the two halves join. Undo any screws holding the halves together. Remove the pin holding the planetary in place. Remove the trim disc. The planetary assembly lifts out but you may need to work around it carefully lifting it a little at a time.
