Question about KitchenAid Pasta Roller / Cutter Set
Posted by Anonymous on
Here is the solution to fix your kitchenaid pasta roller attachment.
Posted on Jan 01, 2015
The "brass input shaft" is designed to break in the event of too much torque being applied; it acts as a shear pin. For safety considerations, I would be careful what I used to replace the shear bolt/shaft. Failure of the shear bolt is necessary to prevent more serious damage to either: 1) the mixer, 2) the pasta attachment, and perhaps most importantly 3) the object stuck in the pasta attachment (think of ingested clothing, hair, fingers, etc). Unfortunately, KitchenAid refuses to supply replacement shear bolts (and I couldn't get an answer as to why); however, they seem pretty good about replacing the attachment under warranty. But logic dictates that a part, such as a shear pin, that is designed to fail, will have a high probability of breaking long after the warranty period has expired. To that end, I have machined a bunch of spare shear bolts to the same physical dimensions as the original part out of 5/16" brass hex stock. I would consider making some available to others in need at a nominal fee.
