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.

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.

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.

planetary, but planetary is still loose and wiggler. Thanks a lot!

very impressed by your video, However opened the housing bout the retainer

from throwing the whole thing in the trash.

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 Ruthann Richards (3 days)
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.

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 Ab Abner (4 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.

Author Ben Thibault (5 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

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?
