Question about KitchenAid RRKP50 350 Watts Stand Mixer

1 Answer

I own KitchenAid RRKP50 350 Watts since late 2004. and it stopped working last night. I searched internet and found that the worm gear is might be the issue. So I opened it and noticed that the tooth on the gear is broken. But in KitchenAid's website, there's no part list PDF file for KitchenAid RRKP50 350 Watts. So I do not know the replacement worm gear part number that I should by for KitchenAid RRKP50 350 Watts. Any pointer to the right document is much appreciated!

KitchenAid Mixer struggling to spin?


Check everything you have done for a mistake, the pin through the planetary, the pin through the fuse gear and the pin in the main shaft that drives the bevel gear. That's the gear that pinion gear on the fuse gear shaft mates with. After that you are left with a fuse gear fault. I am assuming that the motor is turning at normal speeds and not somehow binding up, no reason why it should as motor stays in one piece during gear changing procedure.

I have a KitchenAid stand mixer model KT2651X. It recently ground down the worm gear follower, which I purchased a new one along with a new worm gear because this is not the first time it ground down that...


It is not a good idea to modify anything in the unit to make part(s)
designed for another model fit. The KT and KP models have different
part numbers for the motor. I still don't understand why do you have to
change motor in the first place, just because the Worm Gear Follower
has to be replaced. Something is telling me, you have just purchased
the wrong part (Follower). The KT2651x is similar to the KP26xxx
latest models and the Worm Gear does not come with the Follower.
(i.e. they are 2 different distinct parts)

I have a KitchenAid Professional 600 Series 6-Quart Stand Mixer, model KP26M1XBS, which no longer works. I was mixing pretzel dough and the mixer stopped turning. I initially just thought it overheated...


Don't worry about the Worm Gear for now. You have to make sure that the Motor
is fully functional by itself: Remove the Transmission Housing Cover (4 screws) and
the two screws holding the Motor down. Lift the Motor off the Worm Gear and set it
on the side (be careful of AC voltages from the Motor and Control Assembly).
Select Stir setting and observe the motor shaft. Is the Motor running? If it is,
Select other speeds to see how the motor performs.
With the motor now fully functional, you can now check the Worm Gear Follower
for worn out/broken teeth. Remember the motor drives the Worm Gear, it then in
turn drives the Worm Gear Follower (you may have to remove the grease to see it)
The Bevel Gear sits right on top of the Follower and drives the Attachment Gear.

My Kitchen Aid Pro5 squeals when it's running. I may have overheated it when mixing bread dough. It seems to be running okay. It just makes a very high-pitched noise now. What can I do to fix this?


Get a Copy of the Repair Part List of your model from Kitchenaid.com.
Most likely it is the Worm Gear (17) grinding at low speed the Worm Gear Follower.(19)
You don't have to replace it now, but it is best to open the Transmission Housing and
inspect all the gears conditions. Clear all the grease to expose them. The Bevel
Gear (21) sits right on top of the Worm Gear Follower. (See Repair Part List)
If its teeth look sharp and all metal shiny, then that is the source of your noises.
Eventually, all the teeth will be chewed away and the planetary assembly will stop turning.

Mixer does not rotate hook


Here is the exploded parts list fr a K45, perhaps it will help you replace the stripped gear inside the gear housing. It is probably the gear which is driven by the motor shaft.:

4162897 Worm Gear

It costs around $10 and can be found on the internet at places like:

KitchenAid KSM50P mixer sporadically stops working


Hi, This sounds like you have an issue with the planetary gear system. The mixer has a plastic worm gear inside the planetary that is prone to wear and failure. I would bet that it needs replaceing.

While kneading bread my mixer suddenly starting hanging up at the back side. It makes the full circle but when it gets to the back it stops and "hums" and then sometimes will go on but most of the time...


It sounds like you have lost some teeth from your worm gear. This usually happens when the mixer has been overloaded. The teeth on the worm gear are designed to fail first to prevent more serious damage. To replace the part you will need to open the head on your mixer. The gears are at the front of the mixer packed in grease. It should be obvious that the worm gear has broken once the head is open. If it is not the worm gear, with the head open it should be easy to spot the problem. The gears are available as spare parts from several places on the internet. search for "kitchenaid worm gear"

When you replace the worm gear, you should be able to see if you need more grease. This will have been the "oil" you saw escaping.
