Question about KitchenAid K5SS Heavy Duty Commercial Stand Mixer

1 Answer

Newish mixer just stopped while mixing...no motor smell or strange sounds...

Kitchen aid heavy duty.k5ss. While mixing on this 4 yr old mixer it stopped all motion. No motor smell or strange sound noted. Does this sound like a gear problem? I am handy fixing things. Is this a repair for a non pro? Or once I open it up will the problem be obvious? Any help would be appreciated.

    I have a similar issue, we were making pizza dough, the paddle stopped, and the mixer began to click. The my motor seems fine. It can still change speeds accurately, the mechanism engages (but it makes a clicking noise), and it disengages with the slightest resistance. Is this the worm gear?

I think this link will help you understand what is needed to fix your mixer.

You will need to purchase a gear. Here is link MarBeck should have it.

You may need to replace some grease. Make sure to use a non-toxic food grade grease.

My Kitchenaid mixer (k5ss lift bowl?) smells hot


I think you have a K45SS. It sounds like there is a problem with one of the gears, probably the worm gear. The worm gear is designed to be the first to fail if the mixer has struggled with a heavy dough or other difficult to mix substance. The best way to establish the cause will be to open the head up and check the gears for signs of damage.

I have disassembled my K5SS Kitchen Aid mixe with all gears removed in order to solve its electrical problem. When I plug in the motor and move the speed lever, there is no movement or sound of the motor...


Unless it sits at the back of the motor behind the vent cover. I couldn't find one anywhere on ours either. Check the motor brushes for broken or badly worn carbons, or collapsed springs. It could be a broken wire at the plug end or something wrong with the speed switch. Some strategic voltmeter sleuthing is required. Try turning the motor shaft while the power is on. It may have a dead commutator segment.

Kitchen Aid Mixer has a sound but it doesn't have power to mix


Hi. Goto www.mendingshed.com and download the free Kitchenaid Service Manual.

You may have overloaded the mixer with bread or cookie dough, causing internal damage to the gears.

If you plan to do the repair yourself, you might also consider removing the old grease and oil. Remove, clean and regrease the planetary gear assembly as well. This will add years of life to your mixer.

Regrease with Chevron FM ALC EP-2 product.
