Question about KitchenAid K45SS Classic Stand Mixer
Ongoing problem getting worse. Leak is mostly dark brown oily stuff. I have not oiled the motor or done anything to try to solve this problem except to continue to wipe the "faceplate" above the beater.
There also is what appears to be a little rusty looking rim around the mixer head.
Anything I can do? Mixer is about 8 years old. Bought new.
All you have to do, is to perform some service on your mixer. i suspect some oily must have entered. I can try to lead you through the process but Kitchen Aid is not an easy
machine to repair and some parts are broken easily if not removed properly. First remove the chrome ring near the drive shaft. There is
a pin that has to be removed next to the main drive shaft. This has to
be driven out. Then remove the four screws that hold the unit
together. You will probably find that there is a plastic gear that is
stripped and you will have to drive out the pin that holds the assembly
together. Remove the shaft and gear. do some cleaning, then reassemble.

Hello my name is Heath it will be my pleasure to assist you. The problem is moistue getting into the case. Be careful when whiping the macine down as if you get water into the case it will rust inside and eventually cause the rusty water to run out. You can try using a hair dryer to heat the top of the case real good till all the moisture is out it will take some time but it should work to get the moisture out.
