replaced. The good news
is that this can be fixed quite easily (OK, maybe with a little effort) by
yourself if you are a DITY type person, feel adventurous, and your mixer is not under warranty.However, before you start to disassemble your
mixer, be sure you have the Parts List manual on hand.If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF

Hi Jill. Your mixer's gears are made of plastic and can't really handle heavy loads such as cookie and bread doughs. Contact Sunbeam Corp. to locate a parts place near you. You'll need to replace at least the large gear that turns the turntable base, possibly the worm gear that turns the large gear too. Grease these gears when you re-install the parts. You'll have to cut a couple of cable ties to get the machine apart enough to do the work. If this solution has assisted you, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45.
if you r using it for dough use the roller and scraper it works much better. But if u want to use the dough hook the holes in the middle is where the knob and stick in the arm go into to hold the hook inplace and it also goes in the hole on the side near the scraper hope this helps
its possible that you got a lemon off the factory line or they forgot to put grease into the transmission case.is there a warranty on it?if so take it back.i work for hobart which sold kitchen aid some years ago,if that mixer is less than a year old as stated,take it back or verbally speak to a kitchen aid rep. and tell them your situation.i really belive you should be able to get a replacement as long as you havent overloaded the unit or caused damage.let me know.
I just found my old invoice where I had sent my DLX to be repaired a few years ago. (I had not put in enough moisture and it walked off the (rickety) table I had set it on...)
I need to send it back again and hence my search for the info. The gentleman I sent it to was Mordechai Roth at Magic Mill Corp in Monsey, NY (10952) This occurred back in 2000, I can't believe I saved the receipt...
Phone number is 914-368-2532 (If it's still good) I am calling tomorrow to see about sending mine in... Hope you find yours...
