It is more than likely in the planetary or the fuse gear inside the gear box. Try it once you have the planetary off before you go looking inside the gear box. Easiest is planetary problem but far far more likely is the fuse gear.
KitchenAid doesn't sell any internal parts for the KitchenAid pasta attachments, the only thing to do is buy a replacement, if it is just the pasta roller you can purchase the KPSA, if not the others are just sold in the KPRA pack
All of the KitchenAid pasta attachments are considered non-serviceable. There are not any parts available. You only option would be to buy a new pasta roller. KitchenAid has recently made the roller available by itself so you do not have to purchase it in a whole pack.
Open the Transmission Housing and remove the two screws holding
the Motor. Lift it off the gears and test run it by itself. The motor
should run normally at different speeds. If it does, then you can move on
to the gears. Manually turn the Worm Gear and make sure nothing got jammed.
The Bevel Gear should turn smoothly.
The only part that consistently wears out is the Worm Gear Follower located inside the Transmission housing. The teeth are wearing out and becoming chipped. The clicking noises you hear are made by the Worm Gear banging on the Follower. All the teeth of the Follower are now damaged and the Planetary stops rotating. Removal and replacing of the Worm Gear Follower is no easy task. Let me know if you need help.(Do not try to remove the Planetary assembly by forcing it with a screwdriver. That is not howit's done.)
Hi - I've been searching for general info on KitchenAid stand mixers and ran across this so I'm throwing my $.02 in... Since KA stand mixer bases are essentially made of cast metal parts, there is a very slim chance that there is a lateral misalignment (side-side) unless it got dropped...eek! Sounds like a head height adjustment issue. Check out this from KitchenAid Conversations:
A clicking noise is not indicative of a major motor issue with a Kitchenaid stand mixer. If the noise worsens or is accompanied with other symptoms, or if you are incredibly concerned with the development of clicking, I would suggest contacting Kitchenaid Customer Service.
