My KSM150PSS Kitchen Aid started leaking a brown oily substance from under the large metal ring that surrounds the rotating part that holds the beater "peg." What is going on? Can it be fixed?


Kitchenaid says to run it on high speed long enough for it to warm up well, then turn it upside down- I'd leave it upside down overnight.
The grease in the gearbox, over time, will separate into oil and heavier grease- mixing them together again and letting them run back to the top of the gearbox should take care of it.

If not, come on back and we'll go through the whole disassembly procedure.

What kind of grease can be used on a stand mixer after replacing a stripped worm gear? model:K45SS


Food grade grease is what Kitchen Aid put into the gearbox originally. They do supply it as a spare part if you cannot find it as a non Kitchen Aid part.

Is there an exploded assembly diagram I can reference


Hi LONGLEY632. It sounds like you’re in the need of your mixer’s parts list. It provides ‘reasonable’ exploded views of the various components of your mixer. Enough so that you can disassemble, identify parts and reassemble your mixer.
You can download a PDF version from the KA website at: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> then enter the visitor type “Consumer” and the 6 character model number, in your case use KSM90P, in the Model Number box. Select one the files listed for your model that appears under Parts List (16): KSM90PSWH0.pdf (354.08 KB) and save that file to your PC. Check to verify this matches your mixer model.
Good luck! I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

Kitchen aid growls at slow speed


Hello again, BCPSBT. I’m sorry, but I’m just a little confused because neither the Part List nor the Owner’s Manuals go into any detail about changing/replacing the lubrication grease in your mixer, so I’m not sure what you are referring to when you say your system ‘times out’ when you get to page 10 when you attempt to download it?
The Parts List manual is only 8 pages. Are you perhaps attempting to download the Owner Instruction and Recipe manual instead, which is much longer?
The reason you need the Parts List Manual K45SSWH-0.pdf (2730.37 KB) is to see the ‘exploded views’ which will aid you in the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer. The best instructions for regreasing you mixer are from these two websites:

I’m sorry I don’t have more specific step by step instructions to offer you. Sometimes you have to step out in faith and trust that you can actually accomplish the work yourself.
I wish you good luck in completing your ‘oil’ change.
Good luck and have fun. I hope this provides a little more clarification. Howard, Burke, VA

Dismantling a KSM150 - HELP !!!!! :)


Hi G_MERRY, it sounds like you’re well on your way, great! You’ve got the correct Parts List Manual from KA, 5KSM150PSEWH4.pdf (777.26 KB), and you’ve started to disassemble your mixer using the exploded view on pages 4 and 5 entitled “Case, Gearing And Planetary Unit”.
The first two screws (Illus. No. 25) you removed from the back only secure the trim strap and the trim strap is only for decoration. To get further ‘under the hood’, you will also need to remove the screw at the top of the End Cover (Illus. No. 24) as well as four larger screws (Illus. No. 30) on the bottom of the mixer head before you can separate the Gear Case Motor Housing (Illus. No. 1) from the Lower Gear Case (Illus. No. 18). You will need to remove the planetary ring (Illus. No. 35) to access the planetary ring and agitator shaft, too, if you are completely re-greasing your mixer, as that seems to be your intent.
To continue to disassemble your mixer you will need a regular and Phillips screwdriver, snap-ring pliers, a small drift pin punch and a small hammer. By using the exploded views in the Part List manual, you should be able to disassemble, inspect, identify and replace broken/worn parts, and reassemble your mixer. The Parts list manual doesn’t provide that step by step assembly instructions that would be nice, but just a general idea of how all the parts fit together.
Here are links to three excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA mixer that will be really helpful in your circumstances.
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, and feel comfortable doing it.
I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

The turning mechanics sound clunky


HI PANNABECKERS, sorry to hear about your mixer’s malaise. It is very disconcerting to purchase an expensive brand name kitchen appliance with a solid reputation and find the reality falls far short of your expectation, but I digress on KA quality. You don’t say how old your mixer is, but I’ll assume it’s no longer under warranty (you’ve had it over a year).
By the description of your mixer’s symptoms, I concur with your assessment and say that your mixer is headed for some type of mechanical /transmission breakdown, if it hasn’t failed completely, yet. What can you do?
The good news is that this can be fixed quite easily (OK, maybe with a little effort) by yourself, if you are a DITY type person, feel adventurous, and your mixer is not under warranty you can troubleshoot it yourself. Be sure you have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
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 provides and exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the part names and numbers.
To disassemble your mixer you will need a regular and Phillips screwdriver, snap-ring pliers, a small drift pin punch and a small hammer. By using the exploded views in the Part List manual, you should be able to disassemble, inspect, identify and replace broken/worn parts, and reassemble your mixer.
After clearing all the grease away, check to see if the gears are just loose, excessively worn or broken. If it’s worn or broken you can order replacement parts and install them yourself.
Besides a replacement gear, and grease you might consider replacing the gasket, too. You should use a food-grade grease that you can order online (although I’ve seen automotive bearing grease used too – your call). It can be messy but quite gratifying to diagnose and repair your KA mixer yourself.
If you do need repair parts, here are five potential online vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com (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.
Finally, here are links to three excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer. The mixers displayed in the links are different KA models, but the principles are the same.
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

How do I access the gear box?


Hi RJ0804, it’s quite easy to disassembling your mixer (OK, it may require a little bit of effort). Here are links to three excellent websites that detail with pictures the disassembly, re-greasing and reassembly of a KA Mixer.
This will allow you to remove the top housing of the bottom of the mixer and provide you access to the gears within the head of the mixer.
Once you get that done, you will want to have the Part List manual around for the rest of the disassembly. If you're lacking one, you can download it from the KA website at: (http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home).
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals& Guides> and enter the 6 character model number, in your case KSM150P and select the next to last file KSM150PSWH0.pdf (773.44 KB) (it’s the white model that’s all…) listed under Parts List (61). (Verify that it matches your mixer model, though).
To disassemble your mixer you will need the following tools: a regular & Phillips screwdrivers, snap-ring pliers, a small drift pin punch and a small hammer. By using the exploded views in the Part List manual, you should be able to disassemble, inspect, identify, replace and reassemble your mixer.
Good luck and have fun. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

My kitchen aid mixer model k45 will only operate at high speed.


Hi REINO66, I suspect you (speed) Control Plate Assembly has gone bad and needs to be replaced.
The good news is that this can be fixed quite easily (OK, maybe with a little effort) by yourself if you are a DITY type person, feel adventurous, and your mixer is not under warranty. However, before you start to disassemble your mixer, be sure you have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case use K45SSW, and select the file listed under Parts List (1), K45SSWH0.pdf (341.41 KB). Check to ensure it matches your mixer model.
Turn to pages 6 & 7, titled: Motor And Control Parts, which provides an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer’s electrical components, along with all the parts. Find Illus. No. 25, Control Plate Assembly, Part No. 240904-2, which is the part that needs to be replaced.
As far as parts go, here are four potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com. Prices for the same part can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.

Kitchen aid mixer model K45ss motor just quit. Voltage present on backboard but not on all contacts - maybe phase board problem????


Hi LCHESNEY, it sounds like you’ve got the mixer apart already to do your voltage checks. So my guess it that you’ve already determined that that (speed) Control Plate Assembly is not good and need to be replaced. Since you’ve already disassembled your mixer once I hope you have your mixer’s Parts List manual on hand, but if not, you can download a PDF version from the KA website: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
