Kitchen-aid stand mixer model ksm90ww has oil that leaks from around the silver piece that is located above where the attachments are mounted. What should I do ? thanks, Lamar


Pry the chrome drip ring off. You will find it is filled with oil. Clean it thoroughly, then tighten the screws which were uncovered when you removed the chrome "drip ring". It should stop leaking. If it leaks a little bit then the drip ring will catch the oil so it doesn't get into your dough or whatever you are mixing. It should last a few more years then you will probably have to repeat the procedure. They call it a drip ring for a reason, I guess kitchenaid knows they will leak sometime in the life of the machine so they put it on the mixer!!

Kitchenaid mixer leaking oil from head.how to fix it.


It's not oil, it's grease. Here is a very detailed article on how to add grease to the mixer. After you have added some new grease and tightened the screws it will stop leaking. The temporary fix is to simply remove the chrome ring as is done in the picture on the attached link, clean out the oil and stick it back on till it fills up again. It is called a drip ring for the reason that it catches the oil component of the grease which drips from the gasket when the screws loosen:

MY MIXER IS LEAKING GREASE OR OIL FROM THE HEAD THAT TURNS THE MIXER. WHAT IS THE FIX? IS THIS A FIXABLE PROBLEM? CAN I FIX THIS MYSELF?


I'm assuming yours is an older model with the tilt-head feature.

Kitchenaide mixer...leaking oil underside of


KitchenAid uses a grease in the transmission, and anything that may drip from the transmission will be very low in quantity.

If you want to disassemble, clean, and re-grease to remove the liquid part that has weeped out of the existing grease, do so with a food safe grease.

Leaks oir or grease at shaft where beater attaches


eaking of oil in a stand mixer is not necessarily indicative of a large problem.

Kitchenaid stand mixers are overpacked with oil to last the lifetime of the motor. If the motor sits idle for some time (is not used), the oil may begin to drip from the gears and settle. Oil leakage may primarily be seen from around the beater shaft or planetary action.

A stand mixer can lose up to a 1/4 cup of oil before it needs to be serviced.

It is recommended to run the mixer on speed 10 for 2 minutes in order to redistribute oil back into the motor. In order to prevent future occurences, this is recommended to be done every 3 weeks if mixer is not being used.

If you still feel as though the mixer is in need of service, you may locate Kitchenaid certified repair centers through the following link: http://caservice.kitchenaid.com/

Oil leakage


Is the oil leaking down the beater shaft?Remove the silver drip cup,3 screw's one in the midlle,one on the right and one on the left.Once you drop the drip cup if it's filled with oil then you may need the seal's in the transmission replaced.

Oil leak


hi,its no big deal--the mixer is filled with grease and its coming from the planetary.if it is bothersome remove the drip cup (silver ring) then you will see a roll pin that holds the planetary onto the main shaft.get a small punch and knock out the pin.if the planetary doesnt drop down use 2 flat head scewdrivers and pry it down.clean out the old grease and put in new grease.you can buy it from hobart or get a white lithium grease from an auto parts store.
