A damaged fibre gear in an A200 will remove drive completely from the planetary shaft.

Gear selection is via a spring loaded key which moves up and down along a shaft. The spring on the back of the key can break.

Cheers Bigg t for the reply, I got the mixer fixed by our local ish catering equipment supplier, they said it was a damaged fibre gear, repair cost £190 plus our transport costs to get the mixer to them.
It is now working well and making bread every morning.

My 325 watt, 5 quart artisan stand mixer won't work on "stir" speed. All other speeds work fine, but when I put the switch on stir, I just hear the motor whining like it's trying to work, but...


By not working to mean that the planetary gear wont move? or does it just make a weird noise when it is on a low setting? If the gear is completely stripped the unit shouldn't run on any speed regardless if there is mixture in the bowl or not. Since I can't see the mixer I would say that there might be a slight tear in the gear which would only allow the mixer to get stuck on a slow speed where as on a high speed it is running fast enough to skip that particular tooth. I understand that the mixer is brand new but when it comes to mixers you can strip a gear right out of the box depending on the consistency of the batter you are mixing. If the machine is under a year old it is under warranty and you are allowed free service by an authorized repair center in your area.

I have a hobart a-200 mixer. I rebuilt the transmission and got it up and running but the shifter when put into 1st gear still runs at 2nd gear speed. When I put the mixer under a load it slows down like...


Provided you have assembled the machine correctly you have probably tightened the planetary nuts too tight. Loosen both planetary nuts. Should be an acorn nut and a thin nut. Push the planetary all the way up on the shaft and run the thin nut up until it is snug. Back the thin nut off about 1/4 turn. Hold the thin nut and tighten the acorn nut against the thin nut. The planetary must have a small amount of up and down play in it or it will cause the problem you describe.

The mixer will not start. Power gets to the unit and the blade does turn manually.


Hi - I assume you mean to say that the motor turns on, runs in all speeds but no power is being transferred to the planetary head and beaters?

If this was preceeded by some intermittent run conditions like occasionally skipping beaters and some louder than normal or different run noise then it's likely that the nylon Worm Gear has lost teeth and is no longer making contact with the motor gear. It is part of an assembly which is directly coupled to the motor. Disassembly is required to get at this part and some mechanical skill to replace it. If the mixer's a few years old and/or gets a lot of use, the gear grease should be replaced too. For the gears and other parts, including the grease - check out http://www.goodmans.net/get_dept_933.htm They seem to have just about every part needed and fair pricing. Appliance Parts Pros is another source of parts and diagrams. Warning - mixer disassembly is a medium complexity task and could ruin your day...

Good luck!

When kneading dough, the gears start missing. Is Ok with no load on the beaters


Hi KEITH, from the limited symptoms you’ve described it appears as though you are heading for an imminent transmission failure, if it has not already failed completely by the time you read this. Your transmission gears should not be missing or skipping no matter what load the mixer is under.
You don’t mention how old your KA mixer is or how hard it’s been used, but for your particular model, KA has a plastic gear designed to fail, instead of the whole mixer ‘going up in smoke’. And what it sounds like is that this fail-safe gear is close to the point of failing. What can you do?
If you are DITY type person, feel adventurous, and your mixer is not under warranty you can troubleshoot it yourself. Be sure you have the Parts List manual on hand. 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, and select the first file 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 for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the parts. Locate Illus. No. 58, Worm Gear Bracket & Gear, including Illus. No. 12, Worm Gear (23 teeth). I suspect this is the weak link in your mixers transmission and causing the problems. After clearing all the grease away, check to see if the gear is just loose, exceedingly worn or broken. If it’s worn or broken you can order a replacement part and install it yourself. While you’ve got your mixer this far apart you can check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the on the gears and other components. Besides a replacement gear, and grease you might consider replacing the gasket, too. 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. You should search for ‘food grade grease’. Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
It can be messy but quite gratifying to diagnose and repair your mixer yourself.

Finally, here’s a link to an excellent site for disassembling/fixing your KA Mixer: http://www.neilcrockett.com/mixer.htm and another link to a site that details the disassembly and replacement of mixer’s grease, which might be helpful, too. http://www.foodonthefood.com/food_on_the_food/2009/04/how-to-repair-a-kitchenaid-mixer-yourself.html


Good luck and have fun. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

KitchenAid Artisan 10 speed 325Watt Mixer


Hi, The KitchenAid mixers are usually quite easy to work on if you are competent at DIY. It sounds like a gearbox fault. Gearbox parts are easy obtained for most of the models and are easy to repair.

This is a service manual for a lot of the KitchenAid mixers. Might give you an idea on how difficult it is to work on before taking the plunge.

Hope this helps

Replacement parts for Wolfgang Puck stand up mixer


Very close; stand mixer parts (included accessories and manual only) can be accessed from this page:
http://www.wpcookware.com/categories.asp?cat=32
Just select your mixer's part number (located on a sticker inside the base) and click the link for a list of available parts. You will have to create an account to see anything useful, but all they ask for is your name, a password and an email address. When adding items to your shopping cart, be sure to check the 'Select Item' box. The ordering page will ask for the usual info. Prices are reasonable, but beware the shipping cost!

Same speed


I believe the speed control needs to be replaced. It controls how much electricity is sent to the motor.
