Replacement parts for K-Tec Kitchen Machine

I need the cylindrical gear shaft that goes in the mixer part so you can use the attachments (like the dough hooks and whisks). Mine broke tonight and I've been searching like mad for a replacement. Can anyone help?

Re: Replacement parts for K-Tec Kitchen Machine

I just talked with Blendtec about this issue, since I had the same problem. I asked if there was a stronger drive shaft since my previous Kitchen Champ model had a different, sturdier drive shaft that lasted about ten years.

The company representative explained that the new drive shaft is designed to break, but that's to save the motor. If the stress on the drive shaft could damage or cause excessive wear to the motor, the drive shaft breaks instead.

She also recommended using just enough flour so that the bread dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl. The reason most drive shafts experience too much stress is due to too much flour in the recipe.

To replace the drive shaft, go to or call Blendtec at 1-800-Blendtec

The only part that will work for the Kitchen Champ is the Drive Shaft (Champ). Apparently, the German drive shaft -- which looks like the one from my old Kitchen Champ -- is not interchangeable.

Since this is my second Kitchen Champ and my previous one lasted over ten years, I'm delighted to understand what went wrong. I'm hopeful that using less flour will prevent another problem. And, I'm very pleased with how helpful Blendtec was, explaining this to me.

Re: Replacement parts for K-Tec Kitchen Machine

You can find parts at Blendtec ~ Parts

Blendtec is a division of K-Tec and they are now the main contact for these products. They have the Drive Shafts for the "German", "Elite", "Champ", and "German to Champ upgrade". I'm not sure what that last means but maybe it'll be a shaft that doesn't break off on a regular basis. At one point, they sent us a metal shaft for our Kitchenetics unit but it wasn't all that compatible. (I think it might have ruined the unit but I can't remember and we can't check it out without ordering another shaft.) You can't contact them by email (their online form won't accept an email address with @ and it won't accept one without it).

I haven't seen enough of that model to remember, look up a local service agent and ask them is probably your best option. Whoever does the warranty repairs for Kitchen Aid would be the best person.

Bread paddle stops turning but the mixer still runs

Sounds like the fuse gear has failed. It is a plastic gear in the gearbox that is designed to fail if you overload the machine. It is to prevent more serious damage. Contact Kitchen to locate a service agent closest to you. They can sell you the part if you want to repair yourself or they can do the job for you. You need to open the gear cases to do the replacement.

Professional 600 575 watts 6 qt. beater stem is loose and lets beater drop onto bowl.

b68be83b-c0cb-45d6-8d74-337f1cf098bd.jpgThe part you see is called the planetary, it has two shafts, the long one is called the center shaft and if it is falling off you need a new planetary, the second shaft (shorter) is called the agitator shaft (the beater attaches to it, if this is the culprit then1 you are not attaching the beater correctly2 the locking pin that the beater attaches to to hold it in place is missing3 you have way too much "gunk" build up on the agitator shaft and the beater is not attaching correctly4 if the beater falls into the bowl with the agitator shaft still attached you have three additional problems a) the snap ring a top the agitator shaft has broken off or come off which in turn means that
b) the gear at the top of the shaft has come off and may very well been knocked around and possibly damaged beyond future use which means that you will need a new one and also
c) the shaft pin that holds the agitator gear in place has come out or been broken also
the fix is easy and your parts cost $ will be from $30.00 to $80.00 dollars depending on which parts you need. Now before you get palpitations, cost are listed as a possible need
1 new planetary $30.00, you may not need
2 new agitator shaft and gear assembly $27.00, pretty sure that you need but maybe not
3 new gasket $6.00
4 new gear grease $6.00 KA says 2 oz. (don't buy a 2lb (26.00 bucks) can when you only need 2 oz).

Without more clarity or a picture I can't help further. but before you start tearing you machine apart go to the KA website and get a parts list for your mixer

let us know how you fare on this or better yet get us a little more info and we can help more.

I have a KV25GOXWW stand mixer that from what I have read here needs a new worm gear. I checked the neil crockett site for instructions and they are great BUT, my machine does not have the little scr

It actually can be a couple things1 the worm gear2 the worm follower gear3 the thrust bearing4 the transmission cover5 the bearings on the worm gear front or rear6 the planetary main gear 7 the planetary shaft gear

You will have to open up the mixer and clean each of those to check them out. On the KV25 all are easily do-able just have a large work space and a lot of paper towels. This is a very serviceable machine. let us know what else you need.

I'm replacing the worm gear in our Kitchen Aid mixer, and I am now reassembling the mixer. When I get to the point of puttiing the planetary (the part than spins) back on to the shaft that descends...

Usually enough of the hole is visible through the planetary to put a small screwdriver blade in. I then wiggle the screwdriver to align the hole then knock the pin through.

Kitchen aid gear- where the beaters are attached - comes out og mixer. Can place back and it works - but how do I fix permanently

Hi BEV, By the symptoms you are describing, it appears that your planetary/agitator shaft (where you attach the beaters) assembly is dropping from the mixer head, is that correct? When you replace the planetary and lift your bowl up into a ‘locked’ position, the planetary is being held in place by the beater resting on the bottom of your mixing bowl and ‘works’ for the time being. However, you don’t want operate your mixer that way for very long.
I suspect what caused the planetary/agitator shaft to drop from the mixer head is that one of the pins used to secure the planetary/agitator shaft assembly to the mixer head has failed (sheared) so now there is nothing holding the planetary/agitator to the mixer head. The good news is that this is fixable.
The inspection and troubleshooting of your mixer’s transmission is a DITY capability, particularly if your mixer is out of warranty. Just be sure to have the correct Part List manual around when you start to disassemble your mixer. If you are lacking one, you can download it from the KA website (
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals& Guides> and enter the 6 character model number, in your case KSM50PS. Unfortunately, entering your exact model number yields many Owners manual and no Parts Manuals, so I would use the following, KSM500, and select the last file under Parts List (16) KSM500WH0.pdf (857.41 KB). Verify your mixer matches the mixer in the illustrations. Turn to pages 4 & 5, titled ‘Case, Gearing & Planetary Unit, for the disassembly, troubleshooting, and reassembly of your mixer, along with a listing of all the parts. Make sure you inspect
Locate Illust. No. 14, Groove Pin, Part # 9795443. This pin retains the planetary/agitator shaft to the mixer head, and I suspect this is the pin that has failed and needs to be replaced. Getting to it will require the disassembly of the whole transmission. This will be messy as you will need to remove all the grease from the gears and center shaft.
While your mixer’s apart you should check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the gears, etc. You may find more things that need replacement than just the groove pin.
Besides needing a replacement pin and grease, you might consider replacing the gasket, too. I recommend using a food-grade grease that you can order online (although I’ve seen automotive bearing grease used too – your call).
Here are five potential vendors in no particular order:;;;; and You should search for ‘food grade grease’. Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
It can be messy but quite gratifying to diagnose and repair your mixer yourself.
Here’s a link to an excellent site for disassembling/fixing your KA Mixer. Although it’s a different model, the principles are the same: and another link to a site that details the disassembly and replacement of mixer’s grease, which might be helpful, too.
If you feel troubleshooting and repairing 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.
Good luck and have fun. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

Replacement parts for Wolfgang Puck stand up mixer

Very close; stand mixer parts (included accessories and manual only) can be accessed from this page:
Just select your mixer's part number (located on a sticker inside the base) and click the link for a list of available parts. You will have to create an account to see anything useful, but all they ask for is your name, a password and an email address. When adding items to your shopping cart, be sure to check the 'Select Item' box. The ordering page will ask for the usual info. Prices are reasonable, but beware the shipping cost!

Gear cap which attaches to the drive spindle falls off

there should be a lip on the shaft that hold this up. You insert the shaft from the bottom and a pin goes through the gear to hold it in place. Look at the IPB HERE.
