SOURCE: I need to replace the rotatating column on my KitchenAid mixer.

Hi ALLENJUJU. To replace the agitator shaft will require a significant amount of extra effort, but will be well worth it in terms of gratification and reward for being able to successfully do it yourself. First, I’ll assume your mixer is no longer under warranty. Second, I’ll assume you have your Repair Parts manual on-hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website at:
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case use KSM50P (Your K5SS mixer falls within this manual), and select the first file KSM50P.pdf (438.31 KB) listed under Parts List (4) and then check to verify this matches your mixer model.
Turn to pages 4 & 5, titled: “Case Gearing And Planetary Unit” which shows you an exploded view of all the mechanical parts and assemblies for your mixer.
I highly recommend the following website that provides you step by step instructions with pictures (worth every bit of a 1000 words) to gain access to your planetary housing and agitator shaft. The mixer displayed is a different model (tilt-up) than yours, but the ‘insides’ are the same.

It would be helpful to have the following tools available as you begin to disassemble your mixer: a flat screw driver, a small Phillips screw driver or a punch drive, a pair of retaining clip/ring pliers, and a hammer.
You will need to remove the Planetary Drip Ring (Illus. No. 42) and Pin (Illus No. 25), which secures the Planetary Housing (Illus. No. 33) to the Center Vertical Shaft (Illus. No 19). (See pictures 6, 7 & 10, 11 from the link).
You’ll need the punch drive or small screw driver with a smaller diameter than the pin, a hammer, steady hands and plenty of patience. Rotate the planetary housing to expose the retaining pin with the vertical (center) shaft.
After removing the Planetary Housing, remove all the residual grease from the 18 tooth Agitator Shaft Pinion Gear (Illus. No. 47), which should expose a Retaining Clip (Illus. No. 61), which will need to be removed. With the Retaining clip removed, the pinion gear and Shim Washer (Illus No. 45) should easily slide off the top of the agitator shaft and you should be able to pull the agitator shaft down through the planetary housing bushing.
Take your new, replacement agitator shaft (be sure you’ve got the lower groove pin ordered, too, and insert through the bottom Planetary bushing. Replace the shim washer, 18 T Pinion Gear and Retaining Ring. Grease up the whole works with new grease, and reassemble the opposite of how you took it apart.
Here are five potential online vendors in no particular order:;;;; and (for grease). You should search for ‘food grade grease’ online (although I’ve seen automotive bearing grease used too – your call). Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do some comparison shopping.
I hope this helps - hslincoln, Burke, VA

Relocating a large metal Hills hoist clothesline. How do we take the top line part from the pole with winding mechanism on it?

there are 8olts at the gear box casing that hold the top tube onto the bottom tube (bit in the ground). By undoing these bolts the top section can be moved to a new location by a couple of good friends and re-bolted back on the new bottom post. With my unit the move was necessary as the bottom section rusted through and was in danger of breaking at ground level. I moved it about a foot and used a piece of stainless steel tube (same od as steel pipe) and re fitted the top section back to the pole in the ground. All you need are holes drilled in the stainless to take the locating tags in the gear box housing

Helicopter spins uncontrollably. Will not gain left.

bent shaft maybe? are the cogs engaging properly for both sets of blades? also check your trims are centred on your transmitter before you turn it on (if it has trims)
it looks like an infra-red controlled coaxial heli, but is hard to diagnose without knowing what it is. from what i can see, the top set of blades is spinning ok, but the bottom (counter-rotating) set doesn't appear to be getting as much power,

Kitchenaid groove pin removal


If you cannot see the groove pin is not visible then you have one of two problems.

1 The last time the mixer was taken apart the groove pin was not put back in or not put back in correctly or all the way through the center shaft and out the other side and the pin has fallen out. I which case the planetary should be slipping, remove the trim ring and take two flat head screwdrivers and slip them between the planetary and the lower gear case and try to pry it off (Not too much pressure) because next problem;

2 The groove pin is broken off inside the center shaft, in which case you can still pry it off but with some serious problems potentially, you can break the planetary lip with the pressure of the screwdrivers or you could crack the lower gear case, either will require a part replacement order.

I have only seen one broken groove pin in years of repair and I could still get it out. It happened when someone tried to beat it in and it got bent and eventually broke. In my opinion if you cant see either end of the drive pin then there is no drive pin, try to pry the planetary off as you have seen in the internet videos. Let us know if this helped.

How to set up a spalding uv Tex 5 tent

First set the 3 eleven piece poles with 2 crossed across the tent and one across the front portion. Feed them thru the channels and buckles. Then put the pin hooks into the bottom of the poles. You will need to arc the poles to get the pins into the end of the pole. Next put the poles that are smaller into the channels and buckles for the two vestibules. Again put the pin hooks into the same pole ends as the back crossed one.
Stake the tent to the ground by driving the stakes thru the pin rings starting at the 6 corners of the tent. Pull front of vestibule taut and secure in place by driving stakes thru webbing loops at base.
Install the rainfly by draping it over the top of the tent. Hook each of the 8 S hooks onto the provided loops. Secure the rainfly to the poles by wrapping the velcro straps around the poles underneath the rainfly.
These instructions should be in the pocket on the wall in the main section of the tent in the pocket with red writing.

I have a simplicity quilters classic SW240. It got jammed and now that I got that fixed the tension is off. The machine will sew about 8-10 good stitches and then skip a couple and then sew again. I can...

Is the needle bent, burred or blunt, did it strike a pin or the sewing machine foot during the jam up?

Hand wind the machine through the stitch formation and listen for any squeaking or popping sound as the needle enters the fabric. Or just change the needle anyway and see if it helps. A needle is good for 4-6 hours of sewing only so they do need changing for each new project.

If the stitching is looking uneven and tension is bad check your thread path and make sure the top thread is between the tension discs correctly and under tension, the tension dial is set to the mid range 5 or so and that the bobbin thread is correctly held by the tension spring and is in the right way and rotating in the correct direction.

If looping on the underneath, then your top tension is off, and visa versa.

Even though I clean and now have started to spray silicone on the end, the paddles and etc. get stuck and are hard to remove. What can I do to stop this?

Hi GMVLAHOS. Sorry to hear about your difficulties with removing your mixing blades. By the description of the symptoms, I think that the ‘groove pin’ (the pin sticking out from the agitator shaft that locks your blade onto the shaft) has loosened and shifted out or bent (or both) and this may be the cause of your difficulty in removing your mixing tools.
The ‘groove’ pin is supposed to be tightly fitted to the agitator shaft but it is possible, over time and use, that it has loosened and shifted or bent to the point that the mixing blades ‘appear’ to be stuck and doesn’t come off easily. A quick inspection of the agitator shaft as well as the blade attachment wells can confirm the diagnosis.
Inspect the opposite side of the groove pin hole on the agitator shaft. The end of the groove pin should be flush (or very nearly flush) with exterior of the agitator shaft. If there is a significant space then the groove pin has started to come free from the agitator shaft. The groove pin will still remain in place but the clearances between the pin and the blades may be reduced to zero, making the blades ‘stick’ when you try to remove them.
Also check the blade and see if there might be some additional scouring inside the attachment well where the groove pin contacts the blade when you mount or remove the blade.
How can you fix this? If you are DITY type person and feel adventurous, and if the groove pin does not look bent then a couple of light blows with a small hammer and punch should drive the pin back home tight. If the pin looks bent, then you would need to replace it. To remove the groove pin, you’ll need a small diameter punch (smaller than the diameter of the groove pin) to drive the pin from the agitator shaft.
You will need the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download one from the KA website at:
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case use K45SSW select Parts List (1), K45SSWH0.pdf (341.41 KB), and then check to see it this matches your mixer model.
Turn to pages 4 & 5, titled: Case, Gearing And Planetary Unit for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the parts. Locate Illus. No. 21, Groove pin in Illus No. 26, Agitator Shaft Assembly. The groove pin is what needs to be replaced.
Here are four potential vendors in no particular order:;;; and Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
Finally, here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer.
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, should you decide to go that route.
If you feel this repair is beyond your capability, then I would seek out a local small appliance repair shop in your area. KA Customer Care can give you names of local KA authorized repair shops in your area, but you can also do an online search to supplement what KA may provide you. Call to explain your circumstances and find out their hourly rate and get an estimate of what they think it would cost to repair your mixer. Also, always obtain three or more estimates – do some comparison shopping. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

Ryobi 725R weedeater

First unscrew the bump line leter outer. Then remove the yellow line holder, you will see 2 line grooves for each of 2 lines you will wind into the spool. You will see an inlet area at each of the 2 line holders, you will take about 8-10 feet of line and thread the line into the the groove inlet it will poke out the top of the spool. You will see 2 small holes on the top of the spool, feed just the tip of the line into the hole and pull the line tight on the groove side. Do this on both grooves on the spool, once the line is secure, fish each line into the holes on the spool head and secure with the bump spool leter outer. After spool is secure take the entire spool and wind back into the spool head. you will see the line wind into the spool. make sure you wind the right direction. Once you have seen how this is done, look at the bottom of your assembled spool and you will see 2 arrows. If you have no line in the spool, line up the arrows and take 8-10 feet of line and feed as you did when you have the spool removed. The line should feed through the spool and the line will stick up from the bottom, turn the line and feed just the tip of the line into the retainer hole and pull tight from the spool let-out, once secure wind line back into the spool. Once you have done this once its very easy to do over and over!!!
