Question about KitchenAid KSM90 Ultra Power Series Stand Mixer
My wife was trying to knead too much dough with her mixer and something must have snapped. She says it "stopped", and then she heard a "gnggh", and then when she started it up again, it operated, but has a "dik-dik-dik-dik-dik,," sound, that increases with the speed of operation.
I think it must be a broken gear tooth or something, whatever plastic gears are in there. I found this site:
The exploded diagram is there, but now I am left with guesswork as to how to take it apart. I think the ring comes off first, then the pin, then from there, it'll get greasy. Any advice?
I just ran into this problem when the PLASTIC worm gear broke and then the mixer would not power on after I replaced the gear. The problem was due to the was I tried to dissasemble the mixer. I removed the two plastic screws near the top center of the mixer when attempting to disassemble. These do not have anything to do with the assembly it turns out the attached square pieces (attached to these screws by springs) must be in the proper orientation to run. I put them in the way it showed in a diagram but it did not work until I tried all four different combinations that they could be rotated. Two of the rotations on the square could be eliminated by closely looking at the end where it contacts the shaft. The round shaft marking will be evident on the square inserts. I'mnotsure how to better describe them, but the are attached by springs to the plastic screws on both sides of the top of the mixer.

There are no plastic gears in these mixers there all metal on metal gears big and thick beafy gears
now these mixers have a pin that holds the gears if something ever jams or faults then the pin breaks and the motor will keep running but not the gears for the machines saftey
