I found 10 oz black benelene grease for the gear box, but I noticed the

Author Patrick Henry (3 months)
very impressed by your video, However opened the housing bout the retainer
pliers and found the ring to very difficult to remove. I tried various
tips none would stay connected to the ring. when I finally got it removed
(damaged) the gear would not come apart form the shaft. I'm one step away
from throwing the whole thing in the trash.

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

new mixer, but thanks to the video I was able to repair the mixer. It did
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 took my Pro600 apart, determined the problem,ordered new parts, cleaned
and replaced as you instruct. When I put the worm follower gear back in
both my husband and I noticed that it had more give than seemed necessary.
The dog eared flanges were vertical though and we carried on, greased, etc.
When we turned it on, things were fine at low speed but once we got to
about 4 or 5 it started rattling badly and we turned it off. Clearly
something is not right. Any suggestions?

Hi, your video is really helpful. I have a question though. The front part
of my worm gear lifts up and bumps back down. I can't seem to figure out
which part needs to be replaced. It lift once at each rotation. My mixer
still works but I don't want to damage the gears by using it. Do you have a

Author Peggy Barthel (6 months)
Mark, thank you for your videos. I am still looking for my exact problem
in your videos. Can you perhaps tell me what to do if the planetary has
come loose from the central (moron) shaft? Ours is the Pro600. I think
someone who was helping us in the kitchen pulled on the blade incorrectly
and pulled the planetary loose from the shaft. Now it won't stay on al
all. I'm lost without my KitchenAid! 

Author Ben Thibault (2 months)
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

How do you fix your Kitchen Aid mixer if it doesn't do anything when you
plug it in?

Author Ab Abner (1 month)
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.

Author Nice Girl Films (2 months)
Great video and tutorial! I order the parts and replaced all of the
internal gears on my KitchenAid. When I reassembled everything the worm
follower gear seemed very tight on the planetary rid. I was able to get it
on and insert the pin and put all the other gears in place. Everything
seemed normal, but when I try to run it there is a fairly loud clicking
noise. Any thoughts?

I have a problem I didn't see covered in this video.... but it's a great
video that I'll certainly use. The problem I'm having is that everything
works fine, but there is an occasional drip of grease through the planetary
that winds up in the mixing bowl. After watching this video I didn't see
what I would replace to correct this. Did I miss that part or can you
suggest what needs to be replaced?.... THANKS for the video!

Author kpalexan (6 months)
Video helped clarify the orientation of the shaft bearings. Flats need to
be 'vertical', unlike shown in the parts manual on the KitchenAid website.
Be careful not to put too much grease in the housing as it made reassembly
difficult for me. All in all, a great help in
disassembly/repair/reassembly. Thanks!
