Hi. The pin in question is a tapered pin and can only be tapped out one way. This pin fixes the main driving shaft to the planetary. Use a metal punch slightly smaller in size to the pin and gently tap out the remaining part of the pin toward the largest part of the pin. Once removed, you can install the new pin in the reverse manner. If this solution assisted you, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45.

Agitator shaft replace


Yes

If you have not gotten this taken care of yet. Turn your mixer upside down and remove the silver drip ring and then take out the drive pin with a punch, the pin holds the planetary on and in place. now with 2 screwdrivers from position 5 o'clock and 7 o'clock gently but firmly pry up until the planetary breaks loose and comes of the center shaft, now you will need some snap ring plyers to remove the agitator shaft, once you look at it you will see how to take apart easy.

Kitchenaid groove pin removal


NO!!

If you cannot see the groove pin is not visible then you have one of two problems.


1 The last time the mixer was taken apart the groove pin was not put back in or not put back in correctly or all the way through the center shaft and out the other side and the pin has fallen out. I which case the planetary should be slipping, remove the trim ring and take two flat head screwdrivers and slip them between the planetary and the lower gear case and try to pry it off (Not too much pressure) because next problem;


2 The groove pin is broken off inside the center shaft, in which case you can still pry it off but with some serious problems potentially, you can break the planetary lip with the pressure of the screwdrivers or you could crack the lower gear case, either will require a part replacement order.


I have only seen one broken groove pin in years of repair and I could still get it out. It happened when someone tried to beat it in and it got bent and eventually broke. In my opinion if you cant see either end of the drive pin then there is no drive pin, try to pry the planetary off as you have seen in the internet videos. Let us know if this helped.

Drive it out with a punch and hammer. It's best to take the planetary off the machine so you can support the shaft. If not it puts a lot of unnecessary stress on the bearings and other parts.

I need to replace the rotatating column on my KitchenAid mixer.


Hi ALLENJUJU. To replace the agitator shaft will require a significant amount of extra effort, but will be well worth it in terms of gratification and reward for being able to successfully do it yourself. First, I’ll assume your mixer is no longer under warranty. Second, I’ll assume you have your Repair Parts manual on-hand. If you're lacking one, 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> 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 shows you an exploded view of all the mechanical parts and assemblies for your mixer.
I highly recommend the following website that provides you step by step instructions with pictures (worth every bit of a 1000 words) to gain access to your planetary housing and agitator shaft. The mixer displayed is a different model (tilt-up) than yours, but the ‘insides’ are the same.
It would be helpful to have the following tools available as you begin to disassemble your mixer: a flat screw driver, a small Phillips screw driver or a punch drive, a pair of retaining clip/ring pliers, and a hammer.
You will need to remove the Planetary Drip Ring (Illus. No. 42) and Pin (Illus No. 25), which secures the Planetary Housing (Illus. No. 33) to the Center Vertical Shaft (Illus. No 19). (See pictures 6, 7 & 10, 11 from the link).
You’ll need the punch drive or small screw driver with a smaller diameter than the pin, a hammer, steady hands and plenty of patience. Rotate the planetary housing to expose the retaining pin with the vertical (center) shaft.
After removing the Planetary Housing, remove all the residual grease from the 18 tooth Agitator Shaft Pinion Gear (Illus. No. 47), which should expose a Retaining Clip (Illus. No. 61), which will need to be removed. With the Retaining clip removed, the pinion gear and Shim Washer (Illus No. 45) should easily slide off the top of the agitator shaft and you should be able to pull the agitator shaft down through the planetary housing bushing.
Take your new, replacement agitator shaft (be sure you’ve got the lower groove pin ordered, too, and insert through the bottom Planetary bushing. Replace the shim washer, 18 T Pinion Gear and Retaining Ring. Grease up the whole works with new grease, and reassemble the opposite of how you took it apart.
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.
I hope this helps - hslincoln, Burke, VA

There is a knob that the whisk attaches to from


Hi ALLENJ740, I believe the ‘knob’ that you’re referring to on the agitator shaft (rotating column) is called a ‘groove pin’, and you should be able to replace it yourself. Before you get started, it would be helpful to have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, 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> 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 shows you an exploded view of all the mechanical parts and assemblies for your mixer. Locate Illus. No. 40, Agitator Shaft, Part No. 4176067. Unfortunately the ‘geniuses’ at KA didn’t identify agitator shaft ‘groove pin’ for this model series...duh?
Sooo download this Repair Parts manual file K45SSWH0.pdf (341.41 KB) for a K45SSW model. The K45SS model and your K5SS model share the same agitator shaft part number, and in this manual Illus. No. 21 identifies the ‘groove pin’ (Part No. 9704677), which is the ‘knob’ part you need to replace.
You will need a punch drive with a smaller diameter than the groove pin, a hammer, steady hands and plenty of patience. Rotate the planetary agitator shaft so that the flush end of the groove pin with the agitator shaft is facing you (the extended part (knob) of the pin – or where it used to be - is facing away from you). Align your punch drive on the end of the groove pin and give it a good whack; repeat until the pin starts to come out the other side of the agitator shaft. Continue tapping until the pin comes completely free. Note the groves on the pin as you will need to orient the replacement groove pin the same way when you place it back on the agitator shaft. Just reverse the process. You’ll want to tap the groove pin home to make sure it’s securely in place. You don’t want it to come loose while mixing.
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.
Also, for future reference 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, troubleshoot, determine appropriate repair parts and reassemble your mixer to get it working again. Good luck. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

Hello KELPIES52. I see you have two postings, with some minor differences. You say purchased an “ice-cream maker attachment” in the US and my first clarification question to you is, did you purchase the KA Ice Cream Maker, Model KICA0W, or some other brand that said it was compatible with KA mixers?
If you did buy a KA ice cream maker, then it should fit all KA models, including yours. If you purchased another brand of ice cream maker, then it may never be truly compatible, and there’s the rub.
First regardless of what brand of ice cream maker you purchased, you should have both your KA mixer’s Parts List manual and both the KA Ice Cream Mixers Parts List and Users Manuals in hand. If you're lacking them, 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> and enter the 6 character model number, in your case use 5KSM150, for you mixer and select the file 5KSM150PSEWH4.pdf (777.26 KB) listed under Parts List (1113) (you can actually choose any file sized 777.26 KB; they are all for the different color UK models) and then check to verify this matches your mixer model. This is a good file to have on hand if you ever decide to troubleshoot and fix your mixer by yourself.
After downloading your mixer’s Parts List manual, enter the KA Ice-Cream maker’s 6 character model number, KICA0W (that’s a zero and not an “O”). Download the Part List and the Use & Care Guide manuals (even if you don’t have a KA ice-cream maker) for your future reference.
If, perchance, you have the KA ice cream maker, turn to page 5 for instructions for mounting the drive assembly onto your tilt head mixer's agitator shaft. The KA ice cream maker’s drive is designed to fit over the spring and groove pin (stud) on the agitator shaft.

On the other hand, if your ice cream maker is not a KA model, you can still remove the collar, spring and groove pin if you’d like to give it a try. You will need a punch drive with a smaller diameter than the groove pin, a hammer, steady hands and plenty of patience. Tilt your mixer’s head up and rotate the planetary agitator shaft so that the flush end of the pin with the agitator shaft is facing you (the extended part of the pin is facing away from you). Align your punch drive on the end of the groove pin and give it a good whack; repeat until the pin starts to come out the other side of the agitator shaft. Continue tapping until the pin comes completely free. (Note the groves on the pin as you will need to orient the groove pin the same way when you reassemble the spring and collar on the agitator shaft when you’re finished making ice cream). Once the pin is removed the spring and collar will easily come off and then you can attempt to mount the ice cream maker drive on the agitator shaft. Caveat Emptor! Good luck, I hope this helps.

My kitchen aid mixer is leaking oil or grease from the center shaft. When I opened the planetary there was grease in it. is there suppose to be grease there? is there a seal needed for the center shaft?


Hi TIOBEAN, by the symptoms you describe it appears the Center Shaft ‘O’-ring and quite likely the Transmission Gasket need to be replaced. You don’t mention how old your Artisan mixer is, but I assume it is out of warranty.
The internal gears of your mixer are factory packed with enough grease to last a 'lifetime'—whatever that means, and depending on the age of your mixer, where it was stored, degree and intensity of usage; these factors all contribute to the breakdown of the grease into its constituent parts (oil and suspenders), which have seeped beyond the gasket and ‘O’-ring, down the planetary (agitator shaft). Gravity can be very insidious. The residue coming from the agitator shaft is the gear lubricating grease oil that has come out of suspension.
So how bad is this oil leak problem and what can you do to fix it? First, if the amount of oil found leaking was small and if your mixer otherwise works normally with the missing oil you really don’t need to take your mixer apart to ‘fix’ it. The good news, though, is that you can take the mixer apart and 'fix' it, if you feel it is necessary.
It would be helpful to have the Part List manual as a reference. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website at: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home. Having the Parts List on hand will also be helpful as you will have to disassemble and reassemble your mixer to replace the ‘O’-ring and gasket.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> and enter the 6 character model number, KSM150 and select the file KSM150PSWH0.pdf (773.44 KB) listed for your model that appears under Parts List (61), and save that file to your PC.
Turn to pages 6 & 7, titled:”Case, Gearing And Planetary Unit” and locate Illus. No. 28, Center Shaft & O-Ring; particularly Illus No. 15 & 16, Transmission Gasket and ‘O’-Ring respectively. I suspect these parts have failed and will need to be replaced. Now the real fun begins!
To get to the Vertical Shaft you’ll need the following tools: a regular or Phillips screw driver, retaining clip pliers, and a small drift pin punch and a small hammer. After removing the Gearcase Motor Housing (mixer top) you will need to remove all the lubricating grease from the transmission housing and gears. This will allow you to remove Illus No. 11, 13, & 14, Bevel Pinion Center Gear, Pin (Vertical Center Shaft) and Groove Pin, respectively.
You should now be able to tap the Vertical Center Shaft (Illus. No. 12) down through the Lower Gearcase housing to access the ‘O’-ring.
Besides ordering a new ‘O’-ring (Illus. No. 16) and Transmission Gasket (Illus No. 15), you’ll also need to replace the grease you removed with new grease. Do not try to reuse any original grease as it may have ‘debris’ in it. You should use a food-grade grease that you can order online (although I’ve seen automotive bearing grease used too – your call).
With your mixer apart and the grease removed from the gears you can check them for any other unseemly wear and tear, too.
Here are five potential 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.
Here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer.
Between these three websites and their excellent pictures and descriptions and your Parts List manual, you should now be able to completely disassemble, determine what’s wrong, order the correct parts and reassemble your mixer.
Good luck. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

A200-T Hobart Mixer 1st speed have no torque


Check the spring pin that locks the motor shaft to the main drive gear in the gear box. You should be able to turn the motor from the back at the cooling fins and watch the shaft spin in the gear, that is if the pin is sheared. That is a common problem. if you plan on keeping this machine for a while, i recomend that you spend a little more on a quality spring pin,

good luck.
