Question about KitchenAid KSM90 Ultra Power Series Stand Mixer

1 Answer

I am having the same problem

My shaft "thingy" also falls off. What is beyond me is how it was stuck on the in the first place? What holds it up there: It's just the grooved shaft and hole. Was it glued? If I could only understand the principle for how this part is locked in place I might be able to repair this thing.

  • Fixer1950 suggested there's a pin to fasten the planetary on our mixer. There's no pin on our model. You can see our model here:

    http://mendingshed.com/5profmap.html


    So I still do not have a clue when it comes to how to fasten the planetary.

  • There is not pin or pin hole on my model. You can see the parts list here:
    http://mendingshed.com/5profmap.html

    I have read several posts and also the repair manual, but my model seems to be different in that there's no pin holding the planetary up. It has worked fine for years, but I have noticed that it latel has come more and more down until it finally fell off. The only way this seems to be held together is withthe grooves on vthe shaft and in the planetary hole.

  • I do not know what to do about this. There's nowhere a pin could go on my machine.

    If you look at the parts list here for my model:
    http://mendingshed.com/5profmap.html

    Where is the pin? What part number would the pin be?

    Again, thank you for your help, but it looks like I have some "rogue" version of the mixer! :) I guess I have to give up on this one.

  • It's a KV25GOXOWW just like the one on this page but mine is white:

    Thank you for putting up with me! :)

There should be a pin in the hole. Above it, a washer and a spring.

    The bottom pin holds the planetary on. The second pin rides on the thrust washers, holding the shaft in place in the lower housing. The beveled pinion gear, then rests on the top of the shaft. If you don't have all of the pins, the shaft willnot work properly. From your original post, I thought the thingy you were talking about was the shaft that holds the beater.

    Exactly which model do you have. KSMPRO, KSM90 or K5PRO?

Professional 600 575 watts 6 qt. beater stem is loose and lets beater drop onto bowl.


b68be83b-c0cb-45d6-8d74-337f1cf098bd.jpgThe part you see is called the planetary, it has two shafts, the long one is called the center shaft and if it is falling off you need a new planetary, the second shaft (shorter) is called the agitator shaft (the beater attaches to it, if this is the culprit then1 you are not attaching the beater correctly2 the locking pin that the beater attaches to to hold it in place is missing3 you have way too much "gunk" build up on the agitator shaft and the beater is not attaching correctly4 if the beater falls into the bowl with the agitator shaft still attached you have three additional problems a) the snap ring a top the agitator shaft has broken off or come off which in turn means that
b) the gear at the top of the shaft has come off and may very well been knocked around and possibly damaged beyond future use which means that you will need a new one and also
c) the shaft pin that holds the agitator gear in place has come out or been broken also
the fix is easy and your parts cost $ will be from $30.00 to $80.00 dollars depending on which parts you need. Now before you get palpitations, cost are listed as a possible need
1 new planetary $30.00, you may not need
2 new agitator shaft and gear assembly $27.00, pretty sure that you need but maybe not
3 new gasket $6.00
4 new gear grease $6.00 KA says 2 oz. (don't buy a 2lb (26.00 bucks) can when you only need 2 oz).


Without more clarity or a picture I can't help further. but before you start tearing you machine apart go to the KA website and get a parts list for your mixer

On my Kitchenaid Artisan mixer the 3" silver rod fell out the back. How do I slide back in?


I an sorry but the only Rod in the back of a K45SS is the pivot hinge pin that holds the motor head onto the base. if it fell out then the answer is simple. Turn the mixer upside down and wiggle the base while sliding the pin back in. Once the pin is back in place, there is a set screw in the middle of the shaft that you can see while you are replacing the pin, turn this back down with a flat head screwdriver untill it is firmly against the hinge pin. The culprit of the problem is this set screw. It came loose and allowed your hinge pin to vibrate out and then fall down or fall out as you said. once the set screw is back in place you will be fine. To avoid this problem in the future you might remove the screw entirely and put a drop of "Lock-Tight" on it that will help hold the setscrew in place for a very long time.

KitchenAid mixer ring falls off


The trim ring news to be ta]ed in place with a plastic-face mallet. This type of mallet does not (if used properly) Mar the surface it striks.

Hold the trim ring in place while tapping it in place. It often takes patience to get it right.

The ring is properly in place when there is no place where you can insert a fingernail between it and the mixer body all around the ring.

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.

I have a Hamilton Beach Model 727-3. Works fine but I lost the mixing shaft. I ordered a new one for model 727-B (there was no model 727-3 listed). I am having difficulty getting the new shaft...


The part you need for the 727-3 is referred to as an "Agitator". It looks like the mixer shaft for the 727B but it has "ears" instead of "pins" that lock the shaft into the mixer. Same price but different name and part number.

I have a t801 mixer with a bent planetary shaft.


Remove the whole planetary from the bottom... There should be a large nut on the main shaft...remove it ....whole assembly drops down...careful...don't drop it......At the top of the bent shaft you should see some center punches holding a thin nut in place.....drill them slightly so you can loosen the nut. There are some studs that hold the lower bushings in place...remove them with a straight blade that fits the screw snug. You can have a new shaft made out of stress proof steel shafting from a competent machine shop........MONSTROSPIZZA.COM

Gear cap which attaches to the drive spindle falls off


there should be a lip on the shaft that hold this up. You insert the shaft from the bottom and a pin goes through the gear to hold it in place. Look at the IPB HERE.
