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.

The easiest thing to check is the brushes. There are two large "buttons" on the sides of the mixer. They have a large slot in them. You can use a quarter to stick in the slot and turn the button counterclockwise. Once removed you will see a spring sticking out. Now this is important. On the other end of the spring is a small carbon bar (the brush) which is square and about half an inch long. Note that there is one corner of the carbon bar, the brush, which is removed forming a flat on that corner. Note the position of the flat so that you can replace the brush in the same position. If you don't then the brush will not contact the armature and the unit will never run!

Once removed examine the end of the brush to see if there is some crud on it, most likely charred flour. Carefully scrape the crud off the brush and re-insert it remembering the above . . .make sure it slides easily into position. If it is sticky then remove it again and clean out the brass hole with a q-tip.

Do this to both brushes and the unit will most likely run.



Of course make sure the outlet you are using has power to it!!

If it still doesn't run then there is a problem with the motor control board or the motor.

It appears that retaining ring (7) has snapped. It is the retaining ring which attaches to the drive shaft. Here is the parts diagram:

Runs but doesn't turn. Worm gear is not broken.


Something must be broken if the motor is turning and the planetary is not. It will be one of the following, we will start from the first point of contact with the armature
1) Worm gear broken (fuse gear) you say no teeth broken
2) Worm gear not broken but whole unbroken plastic part not gripping aluminium boss
3) Pin through worm gear broken or missing
4) Pin through centre (or bevel) gear broken or missing
5) Pin through small gear in planetary broken or missing
6) Pin through planetary hub centre shaft broken or missing

The most common ones in order of likelihood are, 1, 2, 3 and 6

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.

How to check Artisan kitchenaid worm gear


If the planetary head (which holds the beater) is not reliably turning, you can be pretty sure that the worm gear (more properly called a worm follower gear) has protected the motor from burning out by sacrificing itself. The Service Manual may downloaded from:

Kitchenaid Mixer Planetary becomes sluggish when met with resistance.


The problem will be with the worm gear, if the gear is not stripped then check that the locating pin for the worm gear is not broken or missing. Occasionally the plastic gear can detach from the aluminium boss between plastic and shaft. The worm gear is the 99.9% place where drive can slip. Afterthought, I suppose the planetary pin is not missing or broken??

Removing worm follower gear in a Kitchenaid Professional 600 mixer


You need to drive the pin out with a punch. The pin should not be crimped on both ends, but could have been damaged if the gears stripped out.


Page 6 of the service manual walks you through removing the worm follower gear and dropping the planetary. Here is a link to the service manual: http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/mendingshed/kitchenaid6qtservicemanual.pdf

Kp2671 stops and starts


It is not going to be a problem with the motor. It is going to be a chipped/damaged gear, a bent planetary center shaft pin, or possibly the planetary itself.

The first thing you need to do is take the mixer apart. You are going to have to clean of all of the gears and inspect them very closely. I recommend using paper towels and wd-40. If there is any damage, the gear will need to be replaced, in some cases the pin that sits between the worm follower gear and bevel gear can become bent, if it is, it also needs to be replaced. If all of the gears, bearings, and the pin are in perfect shape inspect your planetary assembly. In some cases the center shaft, which is pressed into the planetary can become loose, so it will still spin under no load, but as soon as you put something in the bowl it stops spinning.

Here is a link to the KitchenAid service manual. This will walk you through how to take the mixer apart, and put it back together: http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/mendingshed/kitchenaid6qtservicemanual.pdf

Please let me know if you have any questions, or need help with the repair.

Mixer makes a clicking noise and beater stops turning or mixing...gear seems to be slipping...


The only part that consistently wears out is the Worm Gear Follower located inside the Transmission housing. The teeth are wearing out and becoming chipped. The clicking noises you hear are made by the Worm Gear banging on the Follower. All the teeth of the Follower are now damaged and the Planetary stops rotating.
Removal and replacing of the Worm Gear Follower is no easy task. Let me know if you need help.
(Do not try to remove the Planetary assembly by forcing it with a screwdriver. That is not how it's done.)
