What kind of oil use this


I came across a manual for a Blakeslee f-40 60 80 and here is what it said. Hope this helps

Lubrication
The planetary and spiral-beveled gears are self-lubricated for life. The lubrication used is micromly grease and must be re-applied if gears are replaced. The transmission uses Mobil "delvic 1" synthetic oil which should last the normal life of the mixer. No lubrication is required for the auxiliary drive hub.
If lubrication is applied to the auxiliary hub a grease-like substance will possibly leak out causing damage to the product.
Applications of any lubrication will Void Warranty.

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.

Sounds like a ground problem. Try to hook a ground strap or wire from the case of the computers power supply to the ground of the mixer. If it still has noise, try to touch the ground to the bracket of the computers sound card. Most likely, the computer uses a three prong adaptor and the mixer does not. Outlet grounds have voltages which bleed off from motors and other devices, which could cause the 60hz noise. If your mixer has a three prong plug do not plug your computer and mixer in separate outlets with separate grounds or you could fry your system. If you still have problems use a three to two prong adaptor and attach an isolated ground wire on the adaptor for the computer.

Brown oily substance is leaking out of the mixer


It's the gear lubricant. It's food grade so no panic of contaminated food required. When it is all done leaking you may need to buy a new mixer or order a repair kit and open it up before the gears get ruined. - good luck- Ned-

K45SS leaks lubricant


Leaking of oil in a stand mixer is not necessarily indicative of a large problem.

Kitchenaid stand mixers are overpacked with oil to last the lifetime of the motor. If the motor sits idle for some time (is not used), the oil may begin to drip from the gears and settle. Oil leakage may primarily be seen from around the beater shaft or planetary action.

A stand mixer can lose up to a 1/4 cup of oil before it needs to be serviced.

It is recommended to run the mixer on speed 10 for 2 minutes in order to redistribute oil back into the motor. In order to prevent future occurences, this is recommended to be done every 3 weeks if mixer is not being used.
Exploded parts views for all mixers are available at www.kithchenaid.com. Click "Customer Care" in the upper right hand corner of the main page, and then select "Locate Manuals and Guides." You will need to enter the unit's model number exactly as it appears on the bottom of the mixer. It will be listed on a white sticker.

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.

I have this problem too -it is rather common if you search the web. There was a suggestion posted on this site about what to do. See http://www.fixya.com/support/t125253-mixer_leaking_oil I have also read about other people taking it to a Kitchen Aid repair place where they repacked the grease for about $45. I took mine apart and there is gobs of grease around the gears. Right now I am still trying to figure out what to do. I am going to have my father look at it to see what he thinks since he is good with motors. The Kitchen Aid web site says that the grease is FDA approved, so at least it's not going to kill you if a little gets in your food. Their suggestion is to take it out and run it for about 5 minutes at least once a week. They say it leaks if it is not used often enough. That logic doesn't make much sense to me, but you could try it. Mine seems to leak more when I run it because the grease heats up and liquifies more. I hope that helps. I'll let you know what happens with mine, once it's fixed. Lisa
