Kitchen aid mixer repair locationsi


Leaking oil is caused by the grease in the gear box separating. This often happens when the mixer is not used much and the grease is not kept mixed by the moving gears. The solution is two-fold. First run the machine more frequently. Second is to open the head and replace the old grease with an approved food-grade grease (6 oz. is the right amount). KitchenAid grease can be found online and at Ebay. The Service Manual can be found at:

http://www.kitchenaidparts.eu/documents/pdf/service-manual/classic-svc-manual-new-email-version.pdf

While the Artisan series is not specifically referenced, the procedures are the same.

You can also take the mixer and manual to a competent repair person.

Oil leaked from the head and inside the stand. Why? Will it need professional repair?


There is no oil in the mixer at all.

The only thing it can be is that some of the large volume of grease in the gearcase
is melting or liquifying and seeping out, possibly due to heat build up.

If it isn't very much, and there's no unusual gear noise, I wouldn't worry about it.

If it's a substantial amount, you can open up the gearcase quite easily.

This manual isn't for that exact mixer, but disassembly of the gearcase and for
the parts inside is the same.

Top part of mixer is bouncing when in use.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
The Head Lock is most likely worn. The 4.2 mb Service m\Manual is located here:
http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/mendingshed/kitchenaidservicemanual.pdf

You may have a worn hinge pin: Figure 7 page 7 of the pdf file.
The spring for the head lock can be also broken. Item 20 this link: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5136226&diagram_id=28251571#d28251571

See page 22, figure 72 in section 5 of the service manual for pedestal hinge repairs. Most likely the set screw for the head lock has come loose.

Your parts can be found here: (with some exceptions like item 20 above)

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/kitchenaid-parts/mixer-parts/Model-KSM90/0593/0212320/P0408117/00004

This information should get you going if your able to read the manual and follow the sometimes vague instructions.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

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.

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 kitchenAid stand mixer is leaking oil. How do I


referring to:

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%204176924.pdf

You can see that there are 5 screws holding the upper and lower gearcase together. They pinch the gasket number 26 together and prevent the oil and grease from leaking. Remove the chrome ring by prying gently around the ring. You will see the 5 screw heads. Tighten them and the leaking will stop.

If it still leaks then you may have to replace the fiber washers number 29 which will involve disassembling the lower gear case.

Mixer was laid on side for travel and it appeared that a small amount of 'oil' was found on outside of head. Can oil leak out of head? Is the oil refillable?


Hi FDLISS, sorry to hear about your mixer’s ‘leaking’ issues. KA mixers should never be placed on their sides, or you see what can happen. So how bad is this oil leak problem and what can you do to fix it?
First, if the amount of oil you found leaking was small and if your mixer otherwise works normally with the missing oil you really don’t need to take your mixer apart to refill it. The good news though, is that you can take the mixer apart and refill the grease, if you feel it is necessary.
The internal gears are factory packed with enough grease to last a 'lifetime', whatever that means? Depending on the age of your mixer, where it’s been stored, degree and intensity of usage; all these factors contribute to cause the oil to come out of suspension and seep to the bottom of the transmission box. When you laid your mixer on its side, the oil flowed to the lowest point and found a way out. Gravity is very insidious.
What should you do? Clean your mixer head where the oil came out with a sponge and hot, soapy water (DO NOT immerse your mixer in a sink of hot soapy water, though!) Hopefully it did not come out of your electric motor brush ports (those ‘screw’ heads on each side of your mixer head.)
The inspection and troubleshooting of the inside of your mixer is a DITY capability, particularly if your mixer is out of warranty. Just be sure to have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website at: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home. Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case use KSM50P, and select the file that matches your mixer under Parts List (4) from the three versions listed.
Turn to pages 4 & 5 for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the parts. It can be messy but gratifying. You might want to reorder the gasket and an ‘O’-ring for starters. Once apart you can check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the gears, etc.
If you think you need to replenish the grease in your transmission, you should use a food-grade grease that you can order online (although I’ve seen automotive bearing grease used too – your call).
Here are five potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com (for grease). You should search for ‘food grade grease’ online (although I’ve seen automotive bearing grease used too – your call). Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do some comparison shopping.
Here are links to three excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer.
Between these three websites and their excellent pictures and descriptions and your Parts List manual, you should now be able to completely disassemble, regrease and reassemble your mixer.
Finally, if you feel this is beyond your capabilities and will be too difficult to do by yourself you can take your mixer to a local small appliance repair shop and have them troubleshoot and fix your mixer. KA Customer Care can provide you with the name and phone # of the closest authorized KA repair shop in your area or you can do a Online web search, but be sure to get at least three estimates before deciding to commit to one repair shop.
Good luck. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

My classic k45ss leaks oil which drips from the verticle shaft, and my wife says it is making a "funny noise". Maybe it is low on oil, but I turned it on its side to find the model number, and it leaked...


Firstly I would take the head apart to find out what has failed. The oil you see should be a thick grease. Normally it is thick enough not to leak in this way. Has it been repaired and the wrong grease used? If it is making a funny noise it could be that one of the gears has failed. Most parts are easily available. Have a look at the parts list at:

Leaking Dark Oil


Sounds like a combination of two issues.

1. In all likelyhood, the viscosity of the lubricant in the main transmission of your mixer has broken down and is now oil rather than the grease it once was.

2. The seal on the main transmission shaft is worn and the "oil" is leaking past it, resulting in drops of oil forming on the bolt head at the bottom of your planetary and dripping into your bowl.

Draining and replacing the lube and seal is a rather involved repair. To do it properly, complete transmission disassembly is required.

If it was my pizza business and there's just a drop of oil here and there ( 1-3 drops in the bottom of bowl in the morning ) I'd let it ride, keep wiping the oil away prior to mixing a batch and budget (apprx $500-$600 ) for a proper repair as it becomes worse over time. Unfortunately, it won't get better.

I'll add.

It's been my experience that D300's and pizza dough don't play well together. Be certain to calculate the weight of all your ingredients and then consult the capacity chart found here. http://www.kroslakbakeryequipment.com/pdfz/HOBD300.pdf

Stay within the guidelines and you should be fine...however your batches will be rather small.

Hope this is of some use.

My kitchen aid mixer is leaking what seems to be a brown liq. maybe oil where the paddle inserts into the mixer.


This is another complaint about a Kitchenaid Standmixer, model K45SS. It leaks oil, out of the 1 year warranty period. Called the company. Got the standard line: Mixer must be run 2-3 minutes a week to avoid leaks. Nothing appears in writing about it in their manual. Oil leaks into food are dangerous. Please report these to the Consumer Products Safety Commission. After calling their service center a second time, after seeing all the complaints on this board, I informed them of my report to the CSSC. They said they would send a "return repair kit". I could send it in for repairs and if it was determined to be "defective" they would pay for the repair. The representative would not state that this is, in fact a "defect" and that I would be charged to have it inspected and repaired if it was not. Cost, anywhere from 50 to 150. I would be charged to ship it back if it wasn't defective and I decide not to have it repaired.
