Melissa Cartwright: I have an older model kitchenaid that needs the cord replaced, but does not have the snap in wiring tabs like the newer models. The wiring runs under the motor. How do I replace this? I have looked all over the internet, with no luck. It is a Hobart K45 model mixer.
SpiritBear12: I have one of those mixers, bought it brand new at least 12 years ago. I do not use it very often but it now sounds "dry" when I do use it, however, I have never seen any oil or grease leaking out of it. I figure it's about time I change the grease inside of it, it can't hurt on a machine that old.
Stephen Garfield: I just followed your easy instructions and it worked like I was a pro. Thanks a bunch.
Mike E: Nice, thorough job. Someone suggested listing all the tools needed up front - not a bad idea. I made a list while reviewing the video before starting. It didn't take 20 minutes start to finish. Thank you.
MOLRobocop: Thanks for the DIY. Tuned up my mixer nicely.
Terry Nelson: Great video, I was wondering what I was going to do because I recently became aware that this was happening with our kitchenaide mixer and thought I was going to have to take it to a repair shop to fix it. This video makes it look "simple" and straight forward as to how to fix it and as soon as I can find a supply of appropriate grease I will take on this project myself.
tshowler11: I have a lift bowl style kitchenAid. My upper housing case only has 2 screws to remove. It appears to still be attached near the rear of the casing.
Stephen Fullerton: Very handy info. Saved me lots of time hunting and figuring this out on my own.
Kathleen Kalb: Just did this to my 15 years old machine that had been leaking oil. It was a messy job, but with rubber gloves and lots of paper towels, my machine is working wonderfully again. Thank you!
Midge Davis: I have spent the last hour trying to remove the pin from the shaft out of the planetary gear with no luck. I have even frozen it trying to reduce the shrink fit. Any ideas?
Dave Pearl: Thanks that did help now I can fix mine
buddenbo: Thank you very much for this very clear and easy-to-understand tutorial. I purchased a used mixer today and wanted to go through and totally refurbish it. You made my job very easy. It's much appreciated!
Brian W: Fantastic Video! Easy to follow. Q-tips are great for cleaning out the hard to reach places. Thank you eReplacementParts.com!
Angie Serritella: Awesome video! Very helpful! Thank you:)
Lisa Corbin: Is the direction the same for the lift up mixer vs the tilt back?
Michael Thomley: Check out this video on YouTube:
Christopher Krueger: Fantastic. My wife wanted to replace it or send it back to the factory. My only suggestion would be to put on disposable gloves to remove the grease and then thoroughly pack the grease into the gears with your fingers. Thanks!
Mark Webb: Does this demonstration work for Model RRK150???
Rebecca Oprish: Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! For less than $20, I have my mixer back! And just in time for Christmas Eve cookie baking!
TheMrGeisel: Watched the video and have the mixer all apart. What kind of grease do I use to replace the worn out stuff. Looked on your website but could not find any. Thanks for your help.
