Question about KitchenAid K45SS Classic Stand Mixer

Like to replace grease/oil

Where do I find an exploded diagram of a Classic model? Pretty sure I need to replace some oil which has leaked (more than 1/4 cup), but the owner's manual gives me nothing to work with! Help!

Oil leaks out when tip up .around


KitchenAid uses a vegetable based grease inside of their mixers, it is a food safe grease. Because of this if you do not use your mixer often and over time the grease inside the mixer can begin to break down, and an oil will leak from the mixer.

What you will need to do is take the mixer apart, clean out the old grease and replace it with new KitchenAid grease, it is also recommended that you replace the gearbox gasket.

We are one of KitchenAid's largest service centers in the US, everything we sell is Genuine KitchenAid replacement parts.

Here is a link to the grease on our website: http://www.mendingshed.com/kagrease.html
And a link to the gearbox gasket: http://www.mendingshed.com/mixergasket.html

Also to aid you in the repair here is a link to the KitchenAid service manual for your mixer. this will show you how to take the mixer apart, replace the grease, and reassemble the mixer. http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/mendingshed/kitchenaid6qtservicemanual.pdf

I have model A-200-D Hobart mixer. Serial # 1575984. It is leaking oil into the bowl. Who can I call to get an estimate to service or repair this machine?


The oil leeking into your bowl is old grease that has broken down into oil and is getting past your oil seal you need to take out all of your old grease and oil replace it with hi-temp grease or a good grade lithium grease and replace your agitor shaft oil seal

My K45SS is leaking some kind of oil or grease from the part of the mixer above where the mixer part attaches. It otherwise seems to be functioning fine.


its gear oil from the gear box that the motor turns to make the beaters turn,you need to replace the seals or keep adding food grade oil before you dry out the gearbox and ruin it

My classic k45ss leaks oil which drips from the verticle shaft, and my wife says it is making a "funny noise". Maybe it is low on oil, but I turned it on its side to find the model number, and it leaked...


Firstly I would take the head apart to find out what has failed. The oil you see should be a thick grease. Normally it is thick enough not to leak in this way. Has it been repaired and the wrong grease used? If it is making a funny noise it could be that one of the gears has failed. Most parts are easily available. Have a look at the parts list at:

Leaks oil when mixing. the area where you put the beaters leaks a small amount of oil only when mixing.


The grease inside has liquefied instead of being a paste. This can happen by over heating the mixer, keeping near a heat source or a bad gasket. I suggest getting it repacked with grease and replacing the gasket before you start to ruin the gears.

Also the grease although not something you'd consider edible is food safe.

Leaking oil where beaters connect


Hi Maureen. Your K45SS needs to be serviced. The old grease and the oil that has separated from the grease must be removed and the unit cleaned. If you, or someone you know, are up to the task, go to mendingshed.com and download the Kitchenaid Service Manual. This very thorough manual will assist you with the task at hand and with future repairs.

The replacement grease I recommend is Chevron FM ALC EP-2. This is a "Food Grade" grease which is non-toxic should some drip into your mixer bowl at a later date. The planetary gearing should also be removed, cleaned and regreased.

Go to kitchenaid.com, click on Customer Care and click on the Manuals button. In the search window, enter your model number thusly, k45sswh and download the parts drawings for your mixer. These drawings will give you an "exploded view" of your mixer and will come in handy if you need to order parts. Mending Shed also sells replacement parts.

Once your mixer is back in service, run the unit for a couple of minutes every week, this will help keep the oil suspended in the grease and extend the life of the grease.

Oil leak on A200


OK guys, let's try to solve your common problems first then the rest will become clearer.

The Hobart A200,,,,,,,, does not use oil! It uses grease! If you see oil, it's because the grease is separating the oil in the grease. Both machines have not been serviced for at least 5 years. That's about the lenghth of the lifetime of most greases. I recommend that you call Hobart and ask about their tech. rates. All bearings should be checked carefully for wear, as should the worm gear, seal, and the Bronze gear that it turns. The Planetary (mixing part), should be removed as well, cleaned. and inspected. Replace the seal on the planetary and on the mainshaft. Removal of all old grease is required, as it's no longer doing the job it was designed to do, will result in advanced wear, and is the actual source of your problems. The seals were designed to seal grease, not oil.

If Hobart is too pricey for you, and they are for many, try to find someone from a wholesale restaurant equip. place who has rebuilt these machines, or find a repair shop who have experience with this Hobart model. If you'd like to tackle the job yourselves, go to www.hobartservice.com. Register for free, then find the files that match your mixer model and ML # and download the parts files for it. These exploded drawings will be very helpful with your task.

Either way, these mixers need to be opened up to remove existing oil and hardened grease, especially the oil! The planetary must be removed to drain any oil out of it and to regrease it. If you can get the oil out of the mixer, a short fix would then be to simply regrease the the mixer and put it back into service, leaving the existing seals in place. Don't forget to wipe out the shiny ring on the planetary, if it too has oil in it.

There is no seal at the hub. No seals can be tightened. The oil leak underneath the mixer comes from the motor shaft seal at the transmission case where the pinion gear enters the trans., it flows down into the mixer support column and drips onto the floor or counter, again, because of the breakdown of the grease.

If you tackle the job yourself, find your local Chevron Distributor and get several tubes of the approved grease, namely, Chevron FM ALC EP NNGI 2. Chevron p/n 230204-000. If you've found this solution helpful, please rate it as fixya!

Good Luck! ricardok45

K45SS leaks lubricant


I went to Kitchen Aid'sKitchen Aid's web site and had an on line chat with a tect support person name Jessica. She told me that if the mixer is not used a small of oil will leak out. to fix the problem you must run the mixer for a few minutes every month or so. This seems to work.

KitchenAid model K45SSWH doesn't work


Check and make sure the brushes are in correctly. There is only one correct way. The brushes are tapered and need to go in with the taper bypassing the little notch inside. They hard to see but, they are in there, Good luck.
