Question about KitchenAid K45SS Classic Stand Mixer

1 Answer

I don't have a problem yet, but my Mother's mixer is from the 1970s when they first came out. It still runs and works, but should I grease/oil it? I am mechanically inclined but will let sleeping dogs lie if that is what is best.

My aunt has one of these but rarely uses it and was storing it off its base and the grease started breaking down and leaking out. if your moms is not leaking and it is used frequently it may be o.k. but you can download a parts breakdown from appliance parts online, this will show how the case comes apart so you can add or change grease.

Hi, I have a Kitchenaid stand up mixer custom edition 500 watt model #Kd2661xmc that sounds fine when I don't have anything in it, but sounds like its crying when I put just a single cake mix in it. ...


Get A Copy of the Repair Parts List for your model at Kitchenaid.com.
Remove the Gearcase Motor Housing (1) & the Transmission Housing (7)
Remove the 2 screws (23) holding down the Motor (2) and lift off way from
the Worm Gear (17). Test run the motor by itself at different speeds.
If it runs fine then it's time to inspect all the gears in the Transmission
Housing(7). Remove all the brown Grease covering the gears.
Pay attention in particular to the teeth of the Worm Follower Gear (19).
(the Bevel Gear (21) sits on top of this gear)
They should not be worn out or chipped. If they are then this is the source
of the noises you're hearing (the Worm Gear is grinding away the teeth of
the Worm Follower Gear). Once the Follower is replaced, your mixer will
be just as new again.
Please Note that this replacement is not an easy task. You need the right
tools and don't use a hard object like a steel screwdriver to pry out the
Planetary plate (15) from the beater shaft. Before re-assembly, use only
fresh new Food Grade Grease from Kitchenaid (the old grease may contain
metal filings from the worn out gear that will damage your new one)

What are black screws on the side of the mixer


Those are the two Motor carbon Brushes. Without them, the motor
would not run at all. Sooner or later, they will become so worn out
that the mixer will stop running. And when it does, don't be alarmed.
You simply purchase new ones for it. To see what they look like,
Go on Ebay & search for Kitchenaid Motor Brush*. They are keyed so
there is only one proper way to insert them into the motor housing.
If either or both brushes do not make contact with the motor coils,
the motor will not run.

MY kitchen Aide mixer was running alittle rough /loud and now has stop completely. It is approx 24 years old and has never had any problems. It is hard to find a local repair [place. any suggestions


Two things you can do for a 24-year old machine:

1. Replace both motor brushes (Black large plastic Caps on each side
of the Moto Housing). Without these, the motor wouldn't even run.
2. Replace the Worm Gear (the cause of the Rough Loud noises)

your model KSM90.

Also don't forget to tighten all the screws inside the mixers and use
fresh Kitchenaid Grade Food Grease for all the gears.

Kp2671 mixer- I see some oil residue around the base after prolonged use. I held the mixer upside down and on its side to find the model # and oil came out of the "planetary housing" that holds...


There are only two places where Food Grade Grease is used: In the
Transmission Housing (normally installed with a gasket) and in the Planetary
Assembly (Agitator gear). Over times, the grease will get hot and turn into liquid.
The Beater shaft has an O-ring to prevent oil from leaking down, but there is
nothing to prevent oil from the Planetary from making its way down your mix.
Depending which model you have, it's time to open up your mixer, clean out
all the oil and replace it with fresh Kitchenaid Food Grade Grease.

Kitchenaid mixer stopped


Hi Myrna. You may have overloaded the mixer. Don't try to use it, as you may do further damage. If you're hearing the motor turn, then it's OK. There is internal damage in the transmission area. Call Kitchenaid to find the nearest "authorised" repair place. Kitchenaid no longer has a parts catalog for the KSM 90, so parts may be hard to find. Call the "authorised place and ask if they have parts for your unit. Ask them if they can get parts for your model. If they say no to either question, call other small appliance repair places locally and ask the same questions. There may be spare parts around. The fact that Kitchenaid no longer has a parts catalog means that they consider it obsolete.

If you find that It cannot be repaired. I suggest you look at other brands to replace it, as Kitchenaid is now owned by Whirlpool Corp. and the quality of the Kitchenaid line is not what it once was when they were built by Hobart.

Goto www.consumeraffairs.com and review the different mixer's pros and cons. Good luck! ricardok45

Speed control not work - constantly on high


The resistor will have failed. The A701 replacement is a 450 ohm 15W or 20W wirewound resistor. The capaicitor also can fail if the resistor has gone. It is a mains capacitor 0.1 microfarad. The modern mains capacitors are better to use than the old electrolytic type that were originally in the mixer.
