SOURCE: KitchenAid KPRA Brass input shaft sheared. Need a replacement

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.

While mowing the drive belt tightner spring broke. I bought a replacement but the blades will not engage. The drive belt has been routed properly. it seems as though the blade's drive shaft will not spin.


Check and see if the shear pin has broken. If the pulleys spin but not the blades then the shear pin in the pulley or shaft has broken.

How do I replace centering pin for shifter.


I am sure the pin sheared, that is why the shifter is not center. Push the shifter back to original position so that the hole would line up( using little force) Knock out sheared pin and replace with new one.

Motorguide trolling motor


The first thing to check,(After making SURE the electricity is disconnected to the trolling-motor) remove the propeller and see if the shear-pin (Usually made of brass) in in place and not sheared/broken.
If it is, your local marine shop should be able to provide a new one. I always carry spares. If the pin is OK, the windings may have an electrical fault that would require a factory-repair.

We need to find a part number, the hexbolt which is inside of the pasta roller/kitchen aid attachment


Here's my solution. I purchased an 8mm zinc-plated brass hex standoff from http://www.mcmaster.com (part number 92080A053). It is 25mm in length and has internal threads for an M4 screw. It fit perfectly into the nylon gear plug without modification. I had a colleague from work bore out a hole with his drill press (removing the internal threads) and turn down the exterior with a lathe to create a weak spot (mechanical fuse). See the attached image for the finished product. It doesn't match the original dimensions exactly but it is close and will suffice. You don't necessarily have to do the extra machining work if you don't have access to that equipment, but as jeffrey_w325 states in his post, this part is supposed to be the weak link and fail first. If you don't machine the part down, just be extra careful when using the pasta attachment. Good luck!4_3_2012_1_04_19_am.jpg

your shear pin(s) are broken on that side they will look o.k. but are snapped off inside drive them out with a large nail or center-punch,don't use a regular bolt to replace the shear pin as they will fit,because if it gets plugged again the gearbox will be your next expensive shear pin to replace

When using the grinder attachment it appears that something was too tough to be ground and now it won't work.


The grinder part is driven by a shaft from the motor, and not only held in place but caused to turn by a 'shear pin' passing through the grinder bit and the motor shaft. The broken pieces of the shear pin need to be removed from the grinder part and the motor shaft, and a new one inserted. A common 'roll pin' of the correct diameter should do the trick.

Karcher g2500vh..sheared off spill valve


I've seen that before many times. If you have removed all the broken parts you can purchace a new spill valve, grease it and install it. If not, you need to remove the pump and sit it brass side up before removing the bolts holding the brass to the aluminum part (you have to do it that way so the oil doesn't spill out. CAUTION: there is some spring tension on the brass head.), find the other pieces of the spill valve, then put it back together. Then you can buy a new spill valve and install it. there are several on-line companys that sell spill valves for karcher machines, but most of then you would need to call to get the part number and price. I'll help you out by giving you the part number.

Part #4.591-040.0

Driver door lock shoved inside door. (someone tried to break in) I need a schematic or diagram of the door. How to take it apart, what it looks like inside to try and fix this. Can anyone help?


I had same problem. it was not broken into. the screw that holds lock cylinder in fell out. to get inside door is easy. remove screws around border all sides of door and one in middle near speaker. the gentley snap door away from the two clips on inside and lift up off window opening . peel back plastic and you will see the lock mechanism. if need be ( i had to) you can unplug the automatic locks, window and other electric harnesses attached to door inside cover. the lock cylinder will be in bottom of door w/ a brass hex screw. there is a white piece of plastic insert in the hole of lock mechanism and reattach (snap onto bar). its all easy no schematic needed if you have a lil mechanic ability. good luck.
