Kitchenaid Mixer Planetary becomes sluggish when met with resistance.


The problem will be with the worm gear, if the gear is not stripped then check that the locating pin for the worm gear is not broken or missing. Occasionally the plastic gear can detach from the aluminium boss between plastic and shaft. The worm gear is the 99.9% place where drive can slip. Afterthought, I suppose the planetary pin is not missing or broken??

Kitchen aid professional stops spinning


the pro series 600 has a worm gear, a worm follower gear, a bevel gear, and tree bearings the front rear and thrust bearings any of the above will cause the mixer to halt, to operate noisily, or grind, you need to open it up and look under the transmission cover. If it is an older model it could also be the transmission cover if it is a plastic one, My first thoughts is it is the worm follower gear. hope this helps you in the right direction.

Hi, I have a Kitchenaid stand up mixer custom edition 500 watt model #Kd2661xmc that sounds fine when I don't have anything in it, but sounds like its crying when I put just a single cake mix in it. ...


Get A Copy of the Repair Parts List for your model at Kitchenaid.com.
Remove the Gearcase Motor Housing (1) & the Transmission Housing (7)
Remove the 2 screws (23) holding down the Motor (2) and lift off way from
the Worm Gear (17). Test run the motor by itself at different speeds.
If it runs fine then it's time to inspect all the gears in the Transmission
Housing(7). Remove all the brown Grease covering the gears.
Pay attention in particular to the teeth of the Worm Follower Gear (19).
(the Bevel Gear (21) sits on top of this gear)
They should not be worn out or chipped. If they are then this is the source
of the noises you're hearing (the Worm Gear is grinding away the teeth of
the Worm Follower Gear). Once the Follower is replaced, your mixer will
be just as new again.
Please Note that this replacement is not an easy task. You need the right
tools and don't use a hard object like a steel screwdriver to pry out the
Planetary plate (15) from the beater shaft. Before re-assembly, use only
fresh new Food Grade Grease from Kitchenaid (the old grease may contain
metal filings from the worn out gear that will damage your new one)

I have a KitchenAid stand mixer model KT2651X. It recently ground down the worm gear follower, which I purchased a new one along with a new worm gear because this is not the first time it ground down that...


It is not a good idea to modify anything in the unit to make part(s)
designed for another model fit. The KT and KP models have different
part numbers for the motor. I still don't understand why do you have to
change motor in the first place, just because the Worm Gear Follower
has to be replaced. Something is telling me, you have just purchased
the wrong part (Follower). The KT2651x is similar to the KP26xxx
latest models and the Worm Gear does not come with the Follower.
(i.e. they are 2 different distinct parts)

I have a KitchenAid Professional 600 Series 6-Quart Stand Mixer, model KP26M1XBS, which no longer works. I was mixing pretzel dough and the mixer stopped turning. I initially just thought it overheated...


Don't worry about the Worm Gear for now. You have to make sure that the Motor
is fully functional by itself: Remove the Transmission Housing Cover (4 screws) and
the two screws holding the Motor down. Lift the Motor off the Worm Gear and set it
on the side (be careful of AC voltages from the Motor and Control Assembly).
Select Stir setting and observe the motor shaft. Is the Motor running? If it is,
Select other speeds to see how the motor performs.
With the motor now fully functional, you can now check the Worm Gear Follower
for worn out/broken teeth. Remember the motor drives the Worm Gear, it then in
turn drives the Worm Gear Follower (you may have to remove the grease to see it)
The Bevel Gear sits right on top of the Follower and drives the Attachment Gear.

My Kitchen Aid Pro5 squeals when it's running. I may have overheated it when mixing bread dough. It seems to be running okay. It just makes a very high-pitched noise now. What can I do to fix this?


Get a Copy of the Repair Part List of your model from Kitchenaid.com.
Most likely it is the Worm Gear (17) grinding at low speed the Worm Gear Follower.(19)
You don't have to replace it now, but it is best to open the Transmission Housing and
inspect all the gears conditions. Clear all the grease to expose them. The Bevel
Gear (21) sits right on top of the Worm Gear Follower. (See Repair Part List)
If its teeth look sharp and all metal shiny, then that is the source of your noises.
Eventually, all the teeth will be chewed away and the planetary assembly will stop turning.

On low it makes a really loud grinding noise the higher you turn up the speed the slower it becomes.


It sounds like the Worm Gear is going out. The faster the motor runs,
the more damages the Center Gear is grinding away the teeth of the
Worm Gear. Things start to slow down, and eventually they will come
to a halt. It's time to replace the Worm Gear. Also make sure to use
new fresh Kitchenaid Food Grade Grease with the new replacement.

The motor is making a grinding noise. The mixer still works, it just sounds weird.


I have fixed many mixers with the same problem. The only part that consistently wears out
is the Worm Gear Follower located inside the Transmission housing. The teeth are wearing out
and becoming chipped. The grinding noises you hear are made by the Worm Gear and the
Follower. As time goes on, the metal filings from the damaged follower will eventually destroy the Follower and the Planetary will stop rotating.
Sooner or later that gear need to be replaced. Also remember to use new Grease after
a new gear replacement (metal filings from the old gear will damage your new gear)

Mixer makes a clicking noise and beater stops turning or mixing...gear seems to be slipping...


The only part that consistently wears out is the Worm Gear Follower located inside the Transmission housing. The teeth are wearing out and becoming chipped. The clicking noises you hear are made by the Worm Gear banging on the Follower. All the teeth of the Follower are now damaged and the Planetary stops rotating.
Removal and replacing of the Worm Gear Follower is no easy task. Let me know if you need help.
(Do not try to remove the Planetary assembly by forcing it with a screwdriver. That is not how it's done.)
