Hammer and punch. Best to remove planetary so you can support the shaft. If not it puts a lot of unnecessary stress on the bearing and other parts.

Hobart h 600 mixer dough hook keeps coming off during operation. What would cause this


Take a look where the agitator pin engages with the dough hook.
Either the agitator pin (sticks out from the agitator shaft) is worn out or the groove in the dough hook where the pin should sit has elongated and worn. Either pin replacement is in order or new hook is required...possibly both.

Professional 600 575 watts 6 qt. beater stem is loose and lets beater drop onto bowl.


b68be83b-c0cb-45d6-8d74-337f1cf098bd.jpgThe part you see is called the planetary, it has two shafts, the long one is called the center shaft and if it is falling off you need a new planetary, the second shaft (shorter) is called the agitator shaft (the beater attaches to it, if this is the culprit then1 you are not attaching the beater correctly2 the locking pin that the beater attaches to to hold it in place is missing3 you have way too much "gunk" build up on the agitator shaft and the beater is not attaching correctly4 if the beater falls into the bowl with the agitator shaft still attached you have three additional problems a) the snap ring a top the agitator shaft has broken off or come off which in turn means that
b) the gear at the top of the shaft has come off and may very well been knocked around and possibly damaged beyond future use which means that you will need a new one and also
c) the shaft pin that holds the agitator gear in place has come out or been broken also
the fix is easy and your parts cost $ will be from $30.00 to $80.00 dollars depending on which parts you need. Now before you get palpitations, cost are listed as a possible need
1 new planetary $30.00, you may not need
2 new agitator shaft and gear assembly $27.00, pretty sure that you need but maybe not
3 new gasket $6.00
4 new gear grease $6.00 KA says 2 oz. (don't buy a 2lb (26.00 bucks) can when you only need 2 oz).


Without more clarity or a picture I can't help further. but before you start tearing you machine apart go to the KA website and get a parts list for your mixer

I just bought the ice cream maker attachment and the metal collar on the beater shaft is stopping me from attaching the ice cream maker driver. How do I remove the metal collar from the beater shaft?


You need a small steel hammer and a pin punch. Do not try to drive
out the Groove Pin any other way (i.e. don't force it out with a regular
size hammer and a screwdriver), you will only damage the Planetary plate
and/or the Agitator shaft. Lay your mixer down on the floor and support
the Beater shaft with a wooden block before driving the Groove Pin out.

I need to replace the rotatating column on my KitchenAid mixer.


Hi ALLENJUJU. To replace the agitator shaft will require a significant amount of extra effort, but will be well worth it in terms of gratification and reward for being able to successfully do it yourself. First, I’ll assume your mixer is no longer under warranty. Second, I’ll assume you have your Repair Parts manual on-hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website at: 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 shows you an exploded view of all the mechanical parts and assemblies for your mixer.
I highly recommend the following website that provides you step by step instructions with pictures (worth every bit of a 1000 words) to gain access to your planetary housing and agitator shaft. The mixer displayed is a different model (tilt-up) than yours, but the ‘insides’ are the same.
It would be helpful to have the following tools available as you begin to disassemble your mixer: a flat screw driver, a small Phillips screw driver or a punch drive, a pair of retaining clip/ring pliers, and a hammer.
You will need to remove the Planetary Drip Ring (Illus. No. 42) and Pin (Illus No. 25), which secures the Planetary Housing (Illus. No. 33) to the Center Vertical Shaft (Illus. No 19). (See pictures 6, 7 & 10, 11 from the link).
You’ll need the punch drive or small screw driver with a smaller diameter than the pin, a hammer, steady hands and plenty of patience. Rotate the planetary housing to expose the retaining pin with the vertical (center) shaft.
After removing the Planetary Housing, remove all the residual grease from the 18 tooth Agitator Shaft Pinion Gear (Illus. No. 47), which should expose a Retaining Clip (Illus. No. 61), which will need to be removed. With the Retaining clip removed, the pinion gear and Shim Washer (Illus No. 45) should easily slide off the top of the agitator shaft and you should be able to pull the agitator shaft down through the planetary housing bushing.
Take your new, replacement agitator shaft (be sure you’ve got the lower groove pin ordered, too, and insert through the bottom Planetary bushing. Replace the shim washer, 18 T Pinion Gear and Retaining Ring. Grease up the whole works with new grease, and reassemble the opposite of how you took it apart.
Here are five potential online vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com (for grease). You should search for ‘food grade grease’ online (although I’ve seen automotive bearing grease used too – your call). Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do some comparison shopping.
I hope this helps - hslincoln, Burke, VA

There is a knob that the whisk attaches to from


Hi ALLENJ740, I believe the ‘knob’ that you’re referring to on the agitator shaft (rotating column) is called a ‘groove pin’, and you should be able to replace it yourself. Before you get started, it would be helpful to have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website at: 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 shows you an exploded view of all the mechanical parts and assemblies for your mixer. Locate Illus. No. 40, Agitator Shaft, Part No. 4176067. Unfortunately the ‘geniuses’ at KA didn’t identify agitator shaft ‘groove pin’ for this model series...duh?
Sooo download this Repair Parts manual file K45SSWH0.pdf (341.41 KB) for a K45SSW model. The K45SS model and your K5SS model share the same agitator shaft part number, and in this manual Illus. No. 21 identifies the ‘groove pin’ (Part No. 9704677), which is the ‘knob’ part you need to replace.
You will need a punch drive with a smaller diameter than the groove pin, a hammer, steady hands and plenty of patience. Rotate the planetary agitator shaft so that the flush end of the groove pin with the agitator shaft is facing you (the extended part (knob) of the pin – or where it used to be - is facing away from you). Align your punch drive on the end of the groove pin and give it a good whack; repeat until the pin starts to come out the other side of the agitator shaft. Continue tapping until the pin comes completely free. Note the groves on the pin as you will need to orient the replacement groove pin the same way when you place it back on the agitator shaft. Just reverse the process. You’ll want to tap the groove pin home to make sure it’s securely in place. You don’t want it to come loose while mixing.
Here are five potential online vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com (for grease). You should search for ‘food grade grease’ online (although I’ve seen automotive bearing grease used too – your call). Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do some comparison shopping.
Also, for future reference here are links to three 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, troubleshoot, determine appropriate repair parts and reassemble your mixer to get it working again. Good luck. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

I have a kitchenaid 5ksm150(UK), I recently purchased an


Hello KELPIES52. I see you have two postings, with some minor differences. You say purchased an “ice-cream maker attachment” in the US and my first clarification question to you is, did you purchase the KA Ice Cream Maker, Model KICA0W, or some other brand that said it was compatible with KA mixers?
If you did buy a KA ice cream maker, then it should fit all KA models, including yours. If you purchased another brand of ice cream maker, then it may never be truly compatible, and there’s the rub.
First regardless of what brand of ice cream maker you purchased, you should have both your KA mixer’s Parts List manual and both the KA Ice Cream Mixers Parts List and Users Manuals in hand. If you're lacking them, you can download a PDF version from the KA website at: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> and enter the 6 character model number, in your case use 5KSM150, for you mixer and select the file 5KSM150PSEWH4.pdf (777.26 KB) listed under Parts List (1113) (you can actually choose any file sized 777.26 KB; they are all for the different color UK models) and then check to verify this matches your mixer model. This is a good file to have on hand if you ever decide to troubleshoot and fix your mixer by yourself.
After downloading your mixer’s Parts List manual, enter the KA Ice-Cream maker’s 6 character model number, KICA0W (that’s a zero and not an “O”). Download the Part List and the Use & Care Guide manuals (even if you don’t have a KA ice-cream maker) for your future reference.
If, perchance, you have the KA ice cream maker, turn to page 5 for instructions for mounting the drive assembly onto your tilt head mixer's agitator shaft. The KA ice cream maker’s drive is designed to fit over the spring and groove pin (stud) on the agitator shaft.

On the other hand, if your ice cream maker is not a KA model, you can still remove the collar, spring and groove pin if you’d like to give it a try. You will need a punch drive with a smaller diameter than the groove pin, a hammer, steady hands and plenty of patience. Tilt your mixer’s head up and rotate the planetary agitator shaft so that the flush end of the pin with the agitator shaft is facing you (the extended part of the pin is facing away from you). Align your punch drive on the end of the groove pin and give it a good whack; repeat until the pin starts to come out the other side of the agitator shaft. Continue tapping until the pin comes completely free. (Note the groves on the pin as you will need to orient the groove pin the same way when you reassemble the spring and collar on the agitator shaft when you’re finished making ice cream). Once the pin is removed the spring and collar will easily come off and then you can attempt to mount the ice cream maker drive on the agitator shaft. Caveat Emptor! Good luck, I hope this helps.

Even though I clean and now have started to spray silicone on the end, the paddles and etc. get stuck and are hard to remove. What can I do to stop this?


Hi GMVLAHOS. Sorry to hear about your difficulties with removing your mixing blades. By the description of the symptoms, I think that the ‘groove pin’ (the pin sticking out from the agitator shaft that locks your blade onto the shaft) has loosened and shifted out or bent (or both) and this may be the cause of your difficulty in removing your mixing tools.
The ‘groove’ pin is supposed to be tightly fitted to the agitator shaft but it is possible, over time and use, that it has loosened and shifted or bent to the point that the mixing blades ‘appear’ to be stuck and doesn’t come off easily. A quick inspection of the agitator shaft as well as the blade attachment wells can confirm the diagnosis.
Inspect the opposite side of the groove pin hole on the agitator shaft. The end of the groove pin should be flush (or very nearly flush) with exterior of the agitator shaft. If there is a significant space then the groove pin has started to come free from the agitator shaft. The groove pin will still remain in place but the clearances between the pin and the blades may be reduced to zero, making the blades ‘stick’ when you try to remove them.
Also check the blade and see if there might be some additional scouring inside the attachment well where the groove pin contacts the blade when you mount or remove the blade.
How can you fix this? If you are DITY type person and feel adventurous, and if the groove pin does not look bent then a couple of light blows with a small hammer and punch should drive the pin back home tight. If the pin looks bent, then you would need to replace it. To remove the groove pin, you’ll need a small diameter punch (smaller than the diameter of the groove pin) to drive the pin from the agitator shaft.
You will need the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download one from the KA website at: 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 select Parts List (1), K45SSWH0.pdf (341.41 KB), and then check to see it 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. 21, Groove pin in Illus No. 26, Agitator Shaft Assembly. The groove pin is what needs to be replaced.
Here are four potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; and partstore.com. Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
Finally, 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, should you decide to go that route.
If you feel this repair is beyond your capability, then I would seek out a local small appliance repair shop in your area. KA Customer Care can give you names of local KA authorized repair shops in your area, but you can also do an online search to supplement what KA may provide you. Call to explain your circumstances and find out their hourly rate and get an estimate of what they think it would cost to repair your mixer. Also, always obtain three or more estimates – do some comparison shopping. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

I cannot get the beater to lock in place. The


Hi VBPROSANDY, When you say beater, I assume you mean your flat beater. Are you having the same problem with your Wire Whip beater and dough hook? If you are not, then the first thing I’d do is look inside the flat beater’s attachment well, to see that there is nothing; i.e. hardened food, dough or batter, in the bottom of it that would prevent the agitator shaft and groove pin from seating properly. The flat beater has two drain holes at the bottom for drainage, but if these get plugged it may prevent accumulated ‘gunk’ at the bottom from escaping, and over time the buildup may prevent the beater from seating properly.
If you find the beater attachment well is clean, then from the KA Instruction manual, to attach the flat beater...
1. Slide speed control to OFF and unplug.
2. Slip flat beater on beater shaft.
3. Turn beater to left, hooking beater over the pin on shaft.
Finally, check the groove pin on the agitator shaft to make sure it hasn’t become bent so that it doesn’t fit the beater properly. Pins shouldn’t bend, but sometimes they do.
The beater attachment process should not require any effort as the agitator shaft should easily fit into the beater’s attachment well and easily turn to the left. Your planetary should not move during this process and if it does move it will take some effort on your part to turn it. The fact that you’re turning the planetary means you’ve turned the beater as far to the left as it should go to ‘lock’ it. When you get this far, let go and the beater should fall into place on the groove pin.
Good luck. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

Hobart A200T - agitator shaft replacement


Lefty, It's called a tapered pin. It can be removed by using a punch which is a bit smaller than the pin. This tapered pin can only be driven out from one side. Put a bit of WD-40 or some other penetrating oil in the pin area then figure out which end of the pin is smallest. Gently tap it out with the punch and a hammer, only use as much force as necessary. Only replace the shaft if it's badly damaged. You may be able to get at it by removing the four screws on the attachment hub. Remove the hub and see if you can get at it from there. If you can't, you should be able to get at it from the top. If you do replace it, you might consider replacing the shaft bearing and the bearing on the planetary shaft. If you find this solution helpfull, please rate it. Good luck. ricardok45
