Did this video help you?

ThriftyWitch: I watched the how its made video on the work that goes in to these mixers and now if mine breaks down due to grease I can fix it my self. Thank you so very much for taking the time to do this video. You did so and tell amazingly. I give you ##### 5 hash tags. hehe

Justin Brown: the retaining pin is stuck on mine...

snackinallday: Great tutorial - thank you!

Kevin Coburn: Worked like a charm. Thanks for the cheap fix!

Mike King: Thanks for this. My mixer is nearly 50 years old and a treasured member of the family. Minor differences but mostly the same. After re-greasing I put 15# of pork shoulder through the grinder attachment and worked great. Before was heating up ... hot to the touch. This time a little warm but nothing to speak of. I did need to get some grease ASAP so am trying ultra 4X white lithium in a tube. Hopefully I won't need to redo soon. A guy at Lowe's said he used to fix mixers and says it works. Quality of video and explanations are first rate and appreciated. 

Laura Doubek-Kraft: I have a 30-year-old Hobart Kitchen Aid mixer that has been well used and never leaks oil, but I found this very helpful for taking it apart and greasing it. Which is something that has not been done in 30 years. Thanks for sharing!

Terry Whitaker: A very useful video. I've noticed recently that the planetary shaft (to which you attach the mixing pieces) has a golden/yellow oil on it. It's not leaking from the beauty ring, but coming straight down the shaft. It's extremely slow, perhaps one drop per month. If mine is the same problem you describe here, is it possible to get a smaller container of grease? Yours appears to be 2 lbs, but you seemed to use only a fraction of that. The rest would just go to waste if I bought a big tub like that. Do you package it in single-use quantities (i.e. exactly enough for one grease replacement)?

Portamer Marketing: Is there a way to repair the power lever? When I turn on the stand mixer, on the low speed, it mixes very fast. Please help. I have flour everywhere.

Sean Upton: I replaced my worm-follower gear about one year ago, cleaned well, new grease. Last time was first tear-down, only saw dirty grease and stripped gear. One year later, stripped worm-follower gear, four problems I don't remember seeing last time: liquified grease/oil leaking, very congealed/rubbery oil stuck in bevel gear grooves, and some oxidization of some kind of metal in the grease (turquose color at each tip end of the worm-gear shaft), and gear housing screws looser than I remember tightening them. I used a food-safe bio-based "food machinery grease." Is it possible that the separation of the grease is symptomatic of the metalic components introduced into the grease, not my choice of grease itself?

Thomas Shellabarger: Great help! but.... the speed of the mixer since I've 'fixed' it is fast and nonadjustable. what to do?

Jeffrey Jackson: Thanks for the great video! Never would have tackled this without some instruction!!!

Jax Sargent: Thank you for this detailed and thorough video!!! I was able to follow it and I'm mixing again. Keep up the great work.

Gilles Morin: Many thanks Mark, Your instructions are excellent and so easy to follow. You saved me time and money. 

Alice Tisthammer: Used your video yesterday to clean and repack the grease in my Kitchen Aid mixer. LOVED your step-by-step approach. I watched and paused as I worked. WHAT A MESSY JOB, though! I was glad I wore gloves! Your video was a HUGE help! I also used a small, flat wooden stick (like a popsicle stick) to get the grease out of the areas that were too small for the putty knife. Worked great! Also had a little difficulty getting the hole for the pin (on the planetary gear) to come down, so used a pointed tool to work it down to where I could line it up. 

Nick Messina: Thanks for the video, Mark !!!

bath room: I'm not able to get the pin out. Is there a trick to this? Is the pin tapered?

Mike Howeth: I did this repair and now I plug it in and it won't turn on. Please help!! 

Mr Miller: Just did this, thanks: great tutorial, no probs!!

Torrakay: Would it be necessary to replace the gasket if the mixer is leaking oil? I'm being told yes, but your video doesn't illustrate this. Just wondering if I need to repair the gasket or if replacing the grease will suffice. Thanks for any advice and great video!

paladine9797: How do we properly dispose of the old grease?

Mike Sullivan: This video was really helpful, a perfect guide for grease replacement! HowTo fix a latch which doesn't catch: My latch wasn't catching, so the mixer would pop up even after trying to lock it. Put the lid in the up position, you'll see a set screw on the lid where it hinges to the base. Screw that in some more, put the lid down and re-test the lock. If it still won't catch, tighten a bit more and re-test.

Tessa Rollins: Here's my Tuesday night excitement. Hopefully it will do the trick!

Beth Ravel: Thank you so much for this video, it was a tremendous help. However, I'm trying to reassemble the mixer and cannot get the motor housing down no matter what I do. The housing sits about an inch off the base. I tried turning the planetary gear, but it won't go down. I tried removing some of the new grease thinking maybe there was too much and the gears couldn't match up because of it, still nothing. Any ideas of what else to do without taking it to get serviced? Please help!

Justin Brown: on your site you have Grease, Planetary is it compatible with model KSM90??

Justin Brown: the color of the grease used in this video is different from the one you sell, if it different?

jim noyb: I wish every self help video was this good, But even more, I would like you working at the appliance shop down the block. You are a real pro.

chris319: Great video! Very helpful. Thanks for making it.

dubreg61: Excellent video brother... I had the issues myself and didn't know what was going to be involved in fixing it... BUT, you have answered my questions and I will now save about $350 by not buying a new mixer! Thanks!

eReplacementParts.com: Thank you for watching our video and leaving a comment! We are glad that our video has helped you so much! This strain relief that is on your mixer is shaped like a circle with cut off sides. Using a pair of blunt nosed pliers, turn the strain relief to the left. This should bring the retainer to the opening on the housing allowing you to pull it out. To reinstall just go in reverse.Thanks again for watching!

infringinator: Is this pretty much what kitchenaid would do if I sent it to them? And should I replace the grease after so many years, or just when it leaks?

Peggy Schnurr: Very helpful, thank you so much. When this happened, yesterday, as I was about to begin my Christmas baking my first feeling was one of "panic" - thanks for helping.

Cadistra: Thank you so much for this video! I inherited a mixer from my parents, and noticed it started leaking. I was so worried I'd have to get a new one...! :s I'll order some grease online and take an afternoon to do this. Thanks again for saving a much beloved $350+ mixer!

Archimedes Bakes: This video was very helpful.....my KitchenAid is leaking a little bit of oil...probably (as you said) I haven't been using it as much...more cookies! Thanks for the information! :)

ashleyharliescooby: Worked like a charm!

Jeffrey Lebowski: Just wanted to say thanks again for a helpful video. I replaced the grease in mine about two years ago but I used high temp wheel bearing grease instead of the OEM grease. I actually posted a link to your video today for a forum member who needed help with his leaking mixer. Thanks!

Scott Wellman: Thank you so much! Was able to fix my wife's mixer in no time and made her extremely happy! Great instructions!

wjbean: Excellent. Just what I was looking for.

paremphasis: You, sir, are a GOD. I started taking mine apart and thought, mayyyybe I should find out how to do this.

Edie Fields: thank you for answering my question on the color of the grease, I will be happy to do my mixer now instead of being fearful because it's a different color than in the video.

eReplacementParts.com: In our "How to Fix a KitchenAid Mixer That Isn't Spinning" video, you will learn helpful tips that can determine which gear is giving you problems.

Buster33065: Thank You Excelent Job

Ryan Norton: Great video thanks!

Nicholas Mancini: I have my Kitchen aid for 25 years it make noise when I'm mixing dough should I repack it with grease?

Dan Compton: great video man! I thought I was going to have to jump through all kinds of hoops to address this issue but I can see how easily I can fix this myself thanks to you. Kudos!

Aristocob: Excellent video! This is just what I came to YT tonight to find. Thanks!

Marek Zywolewski: I loved this video,it safe me money and my mixer

ea6bflyr: Great video, but instead of replacing the OEM grease that will eventually separate again, I've chosen to use TRI-FLOW Food Grade PTFE Grease that will not separate over time...and I will not have to replace separated grease in a few years.

javon phelps: I am so thrilled to be able to fix my mixer myself. The material was so clearly presented and by playing and pausing the video while I did the work was just like having you here to instruct me. Thanks so much!

eReplacementParts.com: The grease that we use can be found on our website as part #4176597. This grease is food safe. Thanks for watching!

SDlocal: Works great good video!
