Ok im going to take a shot at this its been a while since ive been in a school kitchen
with the planetary ring its supposed to be tapped in make a jig by getting a 2x6 board and 2 2x4s they dont have to be long screw the boards together with the 2 2x4 standing 4 inch up across from each other about the size of the blender head
the wood is to support mixer while on its head and to keep from teetering around
put down down a piece of foam
put the mixer on its head upside down
now you have to find an old plastic sturdy made cup the size of the ring its gotta be able to take a beating (the cup)
but not a hard beating this will help in seating the panetary ring
now get another piece of foam
glue to top of cup let dry then trim around the cup evenly out side and on the inside leave a little foam over the inside edge
place ring on planetary drive where it goes put cup over ring make sure the cup matches size of ring
now get a wood rubber or small pin hammer and tap lightly on the cup till the ring sits itself back into position this is the safest way to place the ring
use a little appliance greese on inside ring lightly to help ease into place

now if any part of the ring is bent i dont recommend placing of old ring i would suggest buying a new ring for mixer

The lip of the planetary ripped off and I am having a trouble replacing it for a Kitchen aid K5-A mixer


The planetary is replaced by removing the chrome drip ring from the housing and then knocking the through pin out that holds the planetary hub onto the shaft from the gearbox. In New Zealand the planetary comes as individual parts not an assembled unit so will certainly look different to the full assembly you take off. The lip of the planetary ripping off is most likely caused by one or more of the 5 gearcase screws under the planetary coming loose and rubbing. Check the other 4 (total) screws at back and middle of gearcase as well.

KP26M1XMR beater shaft falls off


The beater shaft on the 6 quart mixers is part of the planetary assembly. The planetary and center shaft are pressed together, and sometimes they will come apart. The only way to fix this is to replace the planetary or you can have the planetary machine pressed back together.

It is a lot cheaper and less expensive to just replace the planetary. Here is a link to the Planetary Assembly on our website. http://www.mendingshed.com/9708662.html

Kitchenaid groove pin removal


NO!!

If you cannot see the groove pin is not visible then you have one of two problems.


1 The last time the mixer was taken apart the groove pin was not put back in or not put back in correctly or all the way through the center shaft and out the other side and the pin has fallen out. I which case the planetary should be slipping, remove the trim ring and take two flat head screwdrivers and slip them between the planetary and the lower gear case and try to pry it off (Not too much pressure) because next problem;


2 The groove pin is broken off inside the center shaft, in which case you can still pry it off but with some serious problems potentially, you can break the planetary lip with the pressure of the screwdrivers or you could crack the lower gear case, either will require a part replacement order.


I have only seen one broken groove pin in years of repair and I could still get it out. It happened when someone tried to beat it in and it got bent and eventually broke. In my opinion if you cant see either end of the drive pin then there is no drive pin, try to pry the planetary off as you have seen in the internet videos. Let us know if this helped.

The rotating head on the mixer keeps falling off. how do you get it to stay on? it comes off when were mixing.


The Planetary plate comes attached to the shaft from the factory. It is not supposed to get
loose and come apart but it often does due to the mixer's vibrations and the user's constant
attaching and removals of the flat beater, wire whip or dough hook onto the beater shaft.
Try to remove the Planetary plate first : Gently rock it from side to side while pulling on it
to separate from the shaft. Notice the groves on both the shaft and inside the planetary
housing. That is how they are attached to one another at the factory (just friction, no screws
or pins). Now for a permanent solution:
Take a trip to Home Depot or Ace hardware and buy the J-B Industro Weld Compound
(Not the 5 minute type). Mix an equal amount from both tubes (Black and Red). Use a Q-Tip
and apply a thin layer of the mixture on both the shaft (grooved section) and inside the
planetary housing. Now re-attach the planetary plate to the shaft. Use a long strip of duct tape
to hold the plate in place (to prevent it from falling back out). Allow the epoxy to dry overnight
or at least for 8 hours.
The Planetary assembly is now permanently attached to the shaft of the mixer.

The chrome ring on the motor head of my 4 1/2 quart Kitchen Aid stand mixer has come off. It is the ring just above the beater shaft.We have put it back on, but it keeps slipping off. Is there a...


Hi BRET, that chrome ring is called the ‘Planetary Drip Ring’ and is a compression/friction fitted piece that should stay on during normal mixer use. Its purpose is to prevent the mixer’s transmission lubrication grease/oil from dripping into your mixing bowl from the planetary drive, hence its catchy name. It should be on tightly enough that to remove it you need to gently tap the edge of the ring with a straight screwdriver at several points on the ring. Obviously something is awry. Before going to the point of replacing it, though, you might try these three remedies first.
1) The drip ring may only fit tightly on your mixer in one orientation and you just need to ‘discover’ that correct orientation. Mark the outside of the ring with a small piece of tape so you can keep track as you rotate the ring around the mixer head flange. As you attempt to seat the drip ring, if it will not stay on, then rotate the drip ring clockwise, just a bit, and repeat the process. Ideally you should find one position where the drip ring will fit securely and stay in place. Give the drip ring one final squeeze for good measure. Keep an eye on the drip ring the first few times you use the mixer to make sure it is not working loose again. If that doesn’t remedy the problem, then…
2) You might try a little friendly persuasion by gently tapping the bottom of the drip ring with a few taps of a soft faced mallet or hammer (use a piece of wood between the hammer face and the ring to protect the ring) around the ring to see it that seats it any better, and...
3) If it still comes off, then the ring opening has been expanded to the point that it won’t ‘grip’ the mixer head flange. You can try to ‘crimp’ it at a few points around the ring with a pair of pliers so that it may grip better.
Finally, if none of these remedies work, you should order a replacement drip ring for which you’ll need the Parts List manual. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website: 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 K45SSW, and select the file listed under Parts List (1), K45SSWH0.pdf (341.41 KB). Check to make sure it matches your mixer.
Turn to pages 4 & 5, titled “Case, Gearing and Planetary Unit”, which provides an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the parts. Locate Illus. Nos. 26, Planetary Drip Ring, which is the part you want to order.
Here are five potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com (for grease). Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do some comparison shopping.
Also, while your mixer is apart it would be ideal to check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the gears, etc. It can be messy but quite gratifying to diagnose and repair your KA mixer yourself.
Here are some links to several 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 and reassemble your mixer.
Good luck. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

The metal ring (encasing the mixing unit housing) has popped off the unit. In an attempt to replace it, it will not stay in place. How can I make it so it stays in place?


Hi ILLOWA, Happy Newy Year! I believe the metal ring you are referring to is your mixer’s “Planetary Drip Ring”. The drip ring is a compression/friction fitted piece that should stay on during normal use. It should be on tightly enough that to remove it by gently tapping the edge of the ring with a straight screwdriver at several places around the ring.
If the drip ring is falling on its own, than you might try the reverse on trying to remove the ring and tap the bottom of the drip ring gently with a few taps of a soft faced mallet or hammer (use a piece of wood between the hammer face and the ring to protect the ring) around the ring to see it that seats it any better.
The ring may only fit tightly on the mixer in one orientation. Mark the outside of the ring with a small piece of tape so you can keep track of the orientations you have tried. As you attempt to seat the drip ring, if it will not stay on, then rotate the drip ring clockwise, just a bit, and repeat the process. Ideally you should find one position where the drip ring will fit securely and stay in place. Give the drip ring one final squeeze for good measure. Keep an eye on the drip ring the first few times you use the mixer to make sure it is not working loose again.
If it still comes off, then the ring opening has been expanded to the point that it won’t ‘grip’ the mixer head where it’s attached. You can either attempt to ‘crimp’ it with a pair of pliers at a few points around the ring so that it may grip better, or you may want to order a replacement drip ring for your mixer for which you’ll need the Parts List manual.

Planetary Drip Ring will not stay on K5SS Mixer


Hi, EAGLESON: You are correct, the Planetary Drip Ring is a friction fitted piece that should stay on during normal use. It should be on tightly enough that to remove it by gently tapping the edge of the ring with a straight screwdriver at several places around the ring. If the drip ring is falling on it’s own, than you might try tapping the bottom of the drip ring upwards with a few hammer taps around the ring to see it that seats it any better (place a piece of wood between the hammer face and the ring to protect the ring).
If it still comes off, then the ring opening has been expanded to the point that it won’t ‘grip’ the mixer head where it’s attached. You can either attempt to ‘crimp’ it with a pair of pliers at a few points around the ring so that it can grip the flange better, or you may want to order a replacement drip ring, entirely. However, do not try to ‘glue’ it on.
You will want to have the Repair Parts manual on hand to identify the correct part number for your Drip Ring. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website: 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 (Your K5SS mixer falls within this manual), and select the first file KSM50P.pdf (438.31 KB) listed under Parts List (4) and then check to verify this matches your mixer model.
Turn to pages 4 & 5, titled “Case, Gearing and Planetary Unit”, which provides and exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the parts. Locate Illus. Nos. 42, Planetary Drip Ring, (Part # 4162074), which is the part you want to order.
Here are five potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com. Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
Also, while your mixer is apart it would be ideal to check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the gears, etc. It can be messy but quite gratifying to diagnose and repair your KA mixer yourself.
Finally, here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer. The mixers displayed in the links are different KA models, but the principles are the same.
Between these three websites and their excellent pictures and descriptions and your Parts List manual, you should now be able to completely disassemble, repair, 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
