Question about KitchenAid Food Mixers
It sounds like you have lost some teeth from your worm gear. This
usually happens when the mixer has been overloaded. The teeth on the
worm gear are designed to fail first to prevent more serious damage. To
replace the part you will need to open the head on your mixer. The
gears are at the front of the mixer packed in grease. It should be
obvious that the worm gear has broken once the head is open. If it is
not the worm gear, with the head open it should be easy to spot the
problem. The gears are available as spare parts from several places on
the internet. search for "kitchenaid worm gear".
When you replace the worm gear, you should be able to see if you need more grease. This will have been the "oil" you saw escaping.
