Oil leaks out when tip up .around


KitchenAid uses a vegetable based grease inside of their mixers, it is a food safe grease. Because of this if you do not use your mixer often and over time the grease inside the mixer can begin to break down, and an oil will leak from the mixer.

What you will need to do is take the mixer apart, clean out the old grease and replace it with new KitchenAid grease, it is also recommended that you replace the gearbox gasket.

We are one of KitchenAid's largest service centers in the US, everything we sell is Genuine KitchenAid replacement parts.

Here is a link to the grease on our website: http://www.mendingshed.com/kagrease.html
And a link to the gearbox gasket: http://www.mendingshed.com/mixergasket.html

Also to aid you in the repair here is a link to the KitchenAid service manual for your mixer. this will show you how to take the mixer apart, replace the grease, and reassemble the mixer. http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/mendingshed/kitchenaid6qtservicemanual.pdf

Kitchen aid khm3wh beaters will not stay in mixer


4af1c3a0-ea73-4dcd-97e5-dec0fe71b67d.png
I fixed mine (my wife's). Kitchenaid 3-Speed Hand Mixer KHM3WH. Here's how I did it.
This is a pretty old mixer. My wife bought it at a thrift store for $1. She brought it home, we found the beaters and whisk beaters on eBay. Paid $34.00 for both sets of beaters, but when we received them we found they would not stay in the mixer. Oh we also bought the alternative/replacement beaters from Sears, parts online. I don't think those will work with my fix. However with some $0.92 rubber washers from Lowe's and a heavy duty paperclip I fixed the mixer, and it works flawlessly. Maybe some stainless steel wire would be a better, more permanent fix.

How much does a motor cost for this mixer


Hi CAKE_LADY196, Happy New Year! So you want to replace your mixer’s electric motor? Good for you! However, before you start taking your mixer apart, 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 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 6 & 7, titled: “Motor And Control Parts”, which provides an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixers electrical components, along with all the parts. Locate Illus. Nos. 41 and 8, Field Assembly, 115V (the stator) and Armature and Bearing, 115V. You will need these two components to totally replace your mixer’s electric motor, although it is possible, you only need the armature and bearing. Whether you replace both motor parts or just the armature, I would suggest replacing the brushes, too.
Costs will run between $71 ~$99 for repair parts, plus shipping & handling and any sales tax depending on the vendor you select.
Here are five potential 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.
Once apart you can check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the gears, etc. It can be messy but quite gratifying to diagnose and repair your mixer yourself.
Finally, here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembly/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 and reassemble your mixer.
Good luck, I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

MOTOR SPINS ON MY CLASSIC STAND MIXER BUT GEARS DON'T ENGAGE


Hi all. There is damage to the transmission caused by overloading the mixer with bread or cookie dough, or by dropping a spoon or measuring cup into the mixer while it was working.

Go to mendingshed.com and download their free kitchenaid repair manual. This manual has all you, or a repair person will need to repair your model's mixer. Mending Shed also sells needed parts.
