Planetary head of mixer is loose - 1/8" space separated from top case,but still attached. Can it be hammered back? Does it have to be disassembled or replaced?

I have the same problem. It appears to be due to a design flaw-the planetary assembly is press fitted to the drive shaft, and will come loose, to the point where the entire assembly will drop out of the machine. This could be a serious safety issue if the beater and bowl is not in place when the machine is powered on.

Although I have been able to put the planetary assembly back into place using a good amount of effort, the assembly has fallen off repeatedly. Googling the issue has shown that this is a common issue that is particular to the Pro 600 series of mixers.

Contacting KitchenAid through their website as well as by phone has proven unsuccessful so far. I was offered a 50% discount on a new machine (mine is out of warranty). However, no one at KitchenAid to date has been able to verify that there have been any design changes have been made to address the issue. I am still awaiting a call from the factory to determine if there have been any changes to the design, or if there is a way to repair the machine that is approved by KitchenAid.

I was able to find one person who reported success by using a pin to secure the assembly-see this link

While this may address your issue, be advised that this may void the warranty on your mixer.

Good luck!

How do I reattach a planetary that was pulled off?

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.

Kitchenaid mixer K45SS only has one speed, slow. Have taken apart and regreased the machine. I plugged it in while the planetary head was off and it went through the speeds as normal, but as soon as

Did you clean the are around the variable-speed control lever?

Please be sure to unplug the mixer BEFORE disassembling the mixer.

I have a kitchen aid pro 6 kp 2671 the motor will not turn on.

Bad motor = $125.00
bad speed switch = $38.00
bad plug = $17.00

All are easy fixes in that model and all parts are available on the internet and ebay. A kitchenaid parts manual can be downloaded off of the internet and it is basically a tear down guide. Shoul be able to accomplish any of the three fixes in 15 to 60 minutes

The planetary pan has dropped about 1/2" and I can see the gears.

You need a new planetary. It's that simple, the new post 2002 design for the Epicurean the Accolaid, the Pro and Professional series mixers the planetary is held on by a grooved center pin that is simply pressed onto the planetary cup, when this shaft begins to drop you need a new planetary with new center shaft it is the only KA recognized fix, there is another but you need to have a drill press and be handy at making a jig. It is frankly more effort than buying a new planetary. if the machine is generally run down and you don't want to fix it you can probably sell it for parts, I know that I would be interested, but the machine is a good mixer and a planetary is like $30.00 bucks and takes about a half hour and some paper towels to change out. Easily performed by a DIY'er. Let ud know if this helped.

KP26M1XMR beater shaft falls off

The beater shaft on the 6 quart mixers is part of the planetary assembly. The planetary and center shaft are pressed together, and sometimes they will come apart. The only way to fix this is to replace the planetary or you can have the planetary machine pressed back together.

It is a lot cheaper and less expensive to just replace the planetary. Here is a link to the Planetary Assembly on our website.

Thank you,
