Well, from the postings on here I don't think kitchen aid is a top quality piece of work. Me? Sun beam mixmaster. One of the very few that has the power, durability and lifespan of a professional tool. Go the difference and.Know the difference.

I dont know what else to add other then the oil came out of the mixer when i moved and i do not know what type of oil to put back in it and where do i put it in to the mixer on my kitchen aid mixer


Wipe the oil off and carry on. Over time the gearbox grease breaks down and oil separates from the grease solids. Eventually the gearbox will need to be repacked with new grease. Don't worry about a drip or two in a cake, it's food grade grease so harmless.

I have lost about 20ml oil from my Kitchen Aid KSM90 mixer. Is it necessary for me to replace it? Is it possible for me to replace it? What sort of oil?


I would suggest that you replace the oil, but first find out the reason for the leak. There must be a cover on a gearbox that can be removed to put oil in as I doubt that there will be and actual filler point on the machine.

Leaking oil from drive/mixer head


There could be one of two things wrong (or both). You might need a new seal or you might just need the machine to be regressed. Also, never keep your mixer stored on its side as this will automatically allow the machine to leak grease.

My mixer is leaking oil. How do I fix it?


Your mixer is leaking grease not oil. It is a simple fix. First you have to open the machine and regrease it. Once you have done that try replacing the gasket. Also, this particular mixer cannot be left on its side (some people store it sideways in a cabinet or under the sink) doing so will cause the machine to leak as well.

Leaking oil


Carefully pry the chrome ring from the gearhead of the mixer. Item 28 on this page :

You will find 5 screws under the chrome ring. Tighten them and the oil (grease) will stop leaking from the gasket which seals the gearcase halves.

My Kitchen Aid is leaking oil slightly from the bottom. What should I do? How do I add more oil if it needs it?


That is food grade grease separating. Pick some up at an appliance parts store. You may have to split themotor housing to add it if it has no point of greasing.

Model KSM90 10 speed ultra power stand mixer leaking oil at the shaft where mixer tools attach. Is there a repair kit which includes a oil seal or something like that at a reasonable price?


Hi. Your mixer needs to be serviced, have old grease and oil removed, parts cleaned, then re assembled with new grease. Remove the tapered-pin from the planetary gear, remove planetary gear, clean lubricate and re install. Chevron FM ALC EP-2 is a "Food Grade" lubricant, meaning that it's safe for human consumption if it accidentally gets into food. There are no seals, only bushings. The existing bushings will hold back the new grease. The oil has separated from the base of the grease. If you don't use your mixer very often, start it up about once a week to keep the grease properly mixed.

If you'd like more info on your mixer goto kitchenaid.com, look up your model # download the PARTS drawings. Use these drawings to re-assemble and to determine if you need any replacement parts. Be prepared to wait at least a month for your parts to arrive.

Mixer leaked come oil


This kind of unit are lubricated with grase paste. If the unit stays inactive for a long time, or if the motor and gears are overheating the grease paste gets melted into thin oil, and that will cause the leak.
The oil leak is usually coming from the gear box inside the appliance.
To fix the problem the unit must be taken apart, and cleaned. After this step, there is need to spread again the grease, using special foodsafe grease paste.
Disassemblying the gear box is not that easy, you will need previous experience and a gear puller to do the job properly and safely.
This appliances are also held with security screws to prevent the users from taking apart the unit, and can only be disassembled using a Security screwdriver tip.

The grease can be purchased here, check at the bottom of the page: Kenwood chef food mixer Grease.
