Below is a very nice pictorial of your motor .. you could have a burned segment in the comutater or more likely worn brushes. parts are also available from this site. the site may be slow responding so be patient ..

you could clean up the comutater with medium sand paper and replace the brushes .. if you still have problems you might consider replacing the armature.

I have a Hobart Kitchenaid K45SS mixer and want to know how to remove the agitator shaft from the planetary so I can paint the planetary.


To do this, the whole planetary news to be removed. Use a light hammer and 5/32" pin punch to drive out the pin holding the planetary in place. Then use two flat-blade screwdrivers placed on opposite spots under the planetary and push down on the screwdriver's handles. This will force the planetary up and off the central drive shaft.

Now you can remove the agitator drive shaft which is held on (depending upon the age of your mixer) by a screw or ring atop the gear at the end of the shaft.

Re-assembly is the reverse process. Be careful to line up the pin''s hole in the planetary with that in the drive shaft so that the pin can be driven back in place.

How do I install the shredder?


You need to access the accessory attachment point, it's behind the silver KitchenAid logo on the front of the mixer. You'll need to unscrew a set screw (black knob at the very front of the mixer head), newer mixers have a hinged cover, on older mixers, it just pulls out. Unscrew the set screw a bit and fold up or remove the cover.



Now you will see a hole with a hollow square shaft inside, this is where the various optional items attach to the mixer.



Specifically for the shredder, you will need to attach a slicing drum to the drive shaft provided with the shredder, insert it through the drum, and raise the little bar in the rear of the slicer assembly.



Insert the whole assembly into the front of the mixer so that the square drive shaft shaft fits into the square hollow in the mixer, then lower the little bar to lock into place.

How to replace motor in kitchenaid artisan mixer


Sounds like a worm gear problem to me, it's impossible for the motor (armature) to move far enough to not drive the gear. There are driving pins in the system from fuse gear to paddle.
1) in the fuse gear
2) inside gearbox above planetary joining shaft to bevel gear
3) through planetary and shaft

There is also one joining the little gear inside the planetary to the shaft, doubt you'd break that one though.

It probably is the worm gear but you must remove the planetary roll pin to be able to split the gearcase. You will find another smaller roll pin in the worm gear. Your speed lever problem will be either a loose screw that it pivots on or the lever is bent. Hammer and correct size punch is only solution for those roll pins. Bigger hammer sometimes helps.

Usually enough of the hole is visible through the planetary to put a small screwdriver blade in. I then wiggle the screwdriver to align the hole then knock the pin through.

There are 2 possibilities, the attachments are worn out where they go on the shaft, simply replacing them could fix it, the other is the shaft is worn out inside the planetary ( where it spins), if it moves allot, 1/8 " or more from side to side, the housing is probably worn, and the planetary needs to be replaced, easy job, don't know cost, a new mixer may be in order.

Hobart A200 diagnosis


the first A-200's have a worm gear drive that will slip when old but also when mixing dough somtimes the dough will push the mixer aherad of its self and look like its slowing but its just catching up. if you have a old worm shaft it will have a spring on it is how to tell. it is replaced with a shaft that is all keyed and has no slip or give unless a key shears.

I have a Kitchenaid Professional 6 Stand- up mixer. I'm attempting to replace the Worm follower gear that drives the main planetary drive shaft, but cannot figure out how to remove the original. Please...


hi

there is a ring clamp on top of the main worm follower gear on the drive shaft. you might not see it due to the grease.

you need to get one of those weird little pliers with points on them to spread the ring clamp to remove it. Then the gear is just friction fit on the shaft...it's pretty tight. I carefully used a screwdriver to slowly separate the main follower gear from the lower gear and it goes up the shaft....

after a bit you can wiggle the follower gear by hand and it will come up. Then you can see there is a pin holding the drive gear underneath it in place. The pin in my mixer was actually bent (must have been some tough dough).

then you reverse the process to put the gear back on -- except that the top follower gear has to go on the pin in the right orientation or the ring clamp won't fit.

buy your parts from mendingshed.com

hope it helps.
