Very informative video. I have a question though. My mixer will spin but
when I turn it on it hesitates a while before starting and then it doesn't
go through speeds it goes from stir to rapid with nothing in between. Do
you think it's the gears. My mixer is not very old and I usually only use
it for cookies and mashed potatoes.

Author q500pilot (28 days)
Hi Mark,

Great and informative video. One additional thing that your viewers need
to watch out for. My mixer had the bushing from the gearbox cover actually
work loose from the cover and slide down the shaft, resting on top of the
retaining ring. This caused the damage to the lower (Bronze colored) gear
and worm gear shaft assy because the top of the shaft was not
supported allowing it to engage and disengage the gear teeth during
operation. This effectively caused my lower gear (bronze) colored gear to
wear excessively eventually failing.

I inspected my cover for wear and cracks, none. So I reinstalled the
bushing into the cover and peened the edges of the cover to hold the
bushing in place should it decide to move downward again. I used an
automatic center punch to accomplish the peening in five or six places to
be certain. Your viewers could also accomplish this by replacing
the gearbox cover. Other than that everything was accurate and worked
exactly as described. Thanks for taking the time to help everyone with
their appliance repair issues.

How long had this mixer lasted before this work was required? It seems
like the 1 year warranty is changing KitchenAid (owned by Whirlpool) into
no longer being a true heirloom. Does anyone know if the beaters and dough
hooks are made of Aluminum. This is a problem as it is leaching into food
causing dark stains on counters and fabrics. Aluminum is highly reactive
with various ph foods. The whip attachment by KitchenAid says stainless
steel on many units but the dough hooks do not say what they are made of-
many report they are burnished aluminum.

Author Thomas Spivey (3 months)
Easy to follow and replaced worm gear. Not sure my "600 Professional" might
not be as heavy duty as they advertise. Caution when making bread. Dough
hook tends to push up and destroy gear.
Great easy instructions!

This video was perfect! I was able to order the needed parts and follow

take me about 2 hours to fix, but I was taking my time making sure I didn't
miss a step. I think I will schedule regular maintenance on the mixer and
replace the grease every year or so. Thanks so much.

I have the professional 550 HD 575 watts...currently I have the top off my
mixer working on cleaning out the gear housing,,,going really well. One of
the things I found is that I have a ring that is about the bevel gear on
the same shaft...I don't see it on the video. I found that the worm forward
gear shows some damage, so I will replacing it with a new gear.One of the
things that has been an issue is the tools still touch the bottom of the
bowl now matter which way I turn the screw on the inside of the neck...what
should I do...I want to get this mixer up and running for my Thanksgiving
cooking and the rest of my holiday cooking.

Well done video. My wife's mixer works well. The sound it makes has
become a high pitch whine. The faster it spins, the higher the pitch. I'm
wondering if the gears are wearing and if I should open the gear box and
check it out. What is your opinion. And if I need new gears, can I order
them through your website?

Author Ab Abner (6 months)
We have a KitchenAid 600 Professional mixer too.
But it is a little different. The Planetary shaft keeps sliding out of the
Planetary resulting in the mixer falling into the dough. The only thing
that appears to be holding it in place is the friction of the grooved shaft
to the Planetary.

I don't understand how some one who is obviously mechanically competent as
yourself could replace THE ENTIRE gear train of this mixer, and then cheap
out on 2 small bearings. Which, aside from the motor bearings, are the
fastest turning bearings in the whole assembly.

Don't get me wrong, the video does a very good job at explaining for non
mechanically inclined people (I happen to not be one of those). Excellent
