My mixer makes a grinding noise when I use it...where do I put oil in the mixer to stop the grinding sound?


The only place that could ever needs oil is the back motor bearing, and unless you are very mechanically inclined it is a major job. You need to remove all of the electrical components and the motor armature to get to this bearing.
It sounds like you may have a bad bearing. It is possible it just needs grease, but here again, this is a job for a mechanically inclined person. This involves removing the mixer head from the base and removing the lower section of the motor housing. If you do decide to do this make sure you have a new gasket and FOOD GRADE grease. These can be purchased on ebay.
I have rebuilt 10 of this style mixer. If you decide to attempt this yourself, let me know and I will give you my contact info. I will try to walk you through it. and I have one similar to yours that I have taken apart so I could send you pictures.

Grinding Sound


It could be a different gear that is stripped in the mixer. There is also the chance that the gear that was sent you was damaged before it was put in, we do see chipped gears come from KitchenAid every once in a while. The best thing to do would be to take apart the mixer, clean the grease off the gears, and carefully inspect each one for chips or gouges in the gears.

On low it makes a really loud grinding noise the higher you turn up the speed the slower it becomes.


It sounds like the Worm Gear is going out. The faster the motor runs,
the more damages the Center Gear is grinding away the teeth of the
Worm Gear. Things start to slow down, and eventually they will come
to a halt. It's time to replace the Worm Gear. Also make sure to use
new fresh Kitchenaid Food Grade Grease with the new replacement.

The motor is making a grinding noise. The mixer still works, it just sounds weird.


I have fixed many mixers with the same problem. The only part that consistently wears out
is the Worm Gear Follower located inside the Transmission housing. The teeth are wearing out
and becoming chipped. The grinding noises you hear are made by the Worm Gear and the
Follower. As time goes on, the metal filings from the damaged follower will eventually destroy the Follower and the Planetary will stop rotating.
Sooner or later that gear need to be replaced. Also remember to use new Grease after
a new gear replacement (metal filings from the old gear will damage your new gear)

My Ultra Series Mixer has started to make a noise so my husband opened it to inspect if there was enough grease and if the gears were worn. There was plenty of grease and the gears were fine. Now that...


the back cover is the housing that protects the speed adjustment! i THINK that this is the reason your mixer is going so slowly but im not sure, you will have to get it checked out by a kitchenaid repair centre seeing as the same thing happened to mine, they told me it was the speed adjustment.

I would be inclined to replace the broken/worn gear and only any other bearings/bushes that show wear, which is probably none. I would remove any contaminated grease (it usually remains close to the failure point) and add more grease if necessary. The gear is a fuse gear and designed weaker to fail if the machine is overloaded so the gear that runs on it is unlikely to be damaged.

H600t has a grinding sound when engaged


All you can do is take to top off and look inside. Look for damaged gears, shafts that move sideways slightly (or more than slightly) when power is applied, that sort of thing.

Also look for a worn gearshift. Be sure that it engages fully in each gear- observe and see how the mechanism works, there's an overrun clutch with dogs that can drag if the shifter is worn or out of adjustment.

There's not much to go wrong with a Hobart, they seldom fail and are generally easy to repair. Replace the grease while you're in there, if you don't like bearing grease call around and find some food grade grease, a lot of auto parts stores carry it now.

Whining noise in plenetary gear


Hi. Lubrication of the planetary is essential for your mixer. If you're still under warranty (1 year) call Kitchenaid for a replacement mixer but don't tell them that you disassembled anything.

If out of warranty, locate Chevron FM ALC EP-2 food grade grease for your mixer AND the planetary.
If you haven't already done so, go to kitchenaid.com, click on customer care, then click on manuals search. Enter your full model # in the search window and locate the parts list for you mixer. Download it, it will assist you with your servicing and will have all the part numbers for your mixer. If you need a new trans housing insist that it be METAL!

I would also remove the transmission cover, inspect it for cracks if it's one of the cheap plastic housings. If you find cracks, you have more problems with potential internal damage caused by these cracks as this housing supports two important gears and shafts. When it fails these gears skip and cause damage to the gear cogs and bearings. Kitchenaid's replacement housing is made of metal. Hopefully all you need is the planetary greased.

If this solution has assisted you, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45
