Question about KitchenAid Food Mixers

1 Answer

Kitchenaid professional 6000 My mixer has a problem and I know it's in the planetary but cannot figure out how to open it. Any help would be appreciated. John

Thank you all for the help. I finally found out how to remove the planetary for this model. They are not screws to remove or special tricks. By removing the pin the planetary falls off. The reason I took me some time to figure this out for a while is because mine was stuck. So after removing the pin I had to carefully push the planetary down with a variety of tools. I'm now an expert on this model. It's so well designed that it is easy to take apart. Let me know if anyone needs my assistance in the future.

You need to remove the trim band (one screw at the back) that exposes 4 screw heads where the top cover joins the gear case. There are 4 screws from the top that retain the planetary assembly. I can't remember if you need to remove the motor to expose all of them. The motor is no big deal to remove.

hi

there is a ring clamp on top of the main worm follower gear on the drive shaft. you might not see it due to the grease.

you need to get one of those weird little pliers with points on them to spread the ring clamp to remove it. Then the gear is just friction fit on the shaft...it's pretty tight. I carefully used a screwdriver to slowly separate the main follower gear from the lower gear and it goes up the shaft....

after a bit you can wiggle the follower gear by hand and it will come up. Then you can see there is a pin holding the drive gear underneath it in place. The pin in my mixer was actually bent (must have been some tough dough).

then you reverse the process to put the gear back on -- except that the top follower gear has to go on the pin in the right orientation or the ring clamp won't fit.

buy your parts from mendingshed.com

hope it helps.

How do I reattach a planetary that was pulled off?


I haven't seen enough of that model to remember, look up a local service agent and ask them is probably your best option. Whoever does the warranty repairs for Kitchen Aid would be the best person.

Kitchenaid mixer K45SS only has one speed, slow. Have taken apart and regreased the machine. I plugged it in while the planetary head was off and it went through the speeds as normal, but as soon as


Did you clean the are around the variable-speed control lever?

Please be sure to unplug the mixer BEFORE disassembling the mixer.

The planetary pan has dropped about 1/2" and I can see the gears.


You need a new planetary. It's that simple, the new post 2002 design for the Epicurean the Accolaid, the Pro and Professional series mixers the planetary is held on by a grooved center pin that is simply pressed onto the planetary cup, when this shaft begins to drop you need a new planetary with new center shaft it is the only KA recognized fix, there is another but you need to have a drill press and be handy at making a jig. It is frankly more effort than buying a new planetary. if the machine is generally run down and you don't want to fix it you can probably sell it for parts, I know that I would be interested, but the machine is a good mixer and a planetary is like $30.00 bucks and takes about a half hour and some paper towels to change out. Easily performed by a DIY'er. Let ud know if this helped.

Replaced planetary gear and now makes a ticking sound


First what model number? you may not have ordered the correct part number for your mixer, second how old is your mixer, the new part may have to just work itself in due to wear on the center gear that the planetary gear turns inside of, if your mixer is relativity new but you have used it a lot (daily) it may be the same problem, wear on the center gear, if the planetary gear was stripped when you replaced it and you did not clean all the old grease out before you replaced it you may be hearing shards of metal grinding away at your old and new gear which means that you will have to replace both soon again, Hope that this gives you some help on the problem, Please let us know.

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

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.
