Brian George: Great video. Thank you for taking the time to produce it. I followed your instructions exactly and everything went well. (except for using KitchenAid grease. If it separated once I'm sure it would separate again. I used a good quality lithium grease instead) I am a bit surprised that a supposed premium brand would leak oil after less than a few hours total usage. You mentioned that this is a common problem with KitchenAid mixers. Good quality grease is not expensive. KitchenAid's willingness to pinch a few pennies on such a minor item makes me reconsider the possibility of any future purchases.
As an aside, my mother has a Kenwood Chef that is over 60 years old, has seen much heavier use and has never leaked or malfunctioned in any way. They really don't make them like they used to.

jockspice: Thank you! Was worried this would cost a lot to fix, but all it cost me was some grease and a bit of time. Excellent walk through of the procedure.

Meena Gaps: Excellent video, exactly what I wanted. Clear explanation. Thanks for taking time to do the video.

Tiffany Pratt: Thank you! I have needed to do this for quite a while. This was a pain and a dirt job as he stated, but at least my mixer isn't leaking any longer.

Bill Parsons: By leaving some of the "old" grease behind will it cause the new grease to degrade or dissolve? I know in the automotive world not all grease is compatible with other types of grease. I'll assume this would be an important consideration if one was not using the OEM grease.

Michelle C: So helpful! Thank you!

Joe Barton: What size roll punch do I need to purchase for this repair? Thanks, JB

Stephanie Romey: Loved the video. You make it look so easy. I assume this video works for the KitchenAid Artisan? I priced the grease at $44.00 for that sized tub. Can you tell me more about the grease and where it can be purchased.

Joshua Jasinski: Thank you. This was a very good video all around. Step by step without any nonsense.

javiersierrak: Safety first, disconnect from electricity...

nydia heiden: I replaced the grease as instructed but now the machine doesn't turn on! Has no power at all. I also checked the carbon brushes with no luck. I hope I didn't break it :(

Joseph Thompson: As others have said, very clear and simple step-by-step directions. I was able to follow easily and complete the repair with no problems. Thanks!

David Mendez: Can't get any better than this...Simple to understand, Step by step, from the beginning to the end... 10 out of 10 Perfect "SCORE" from me!!! Keep up the Good Work!!!

Lynane A: Thank you. Clear, concise and thorough instructions. Great tips! Just saved me a trip to the repair shop. Excellent video!!

Brad and Dorothy Hammett & Kosiba: Great quality video, straight to the point directions. Our decades old machine is ready for another few decades. Thanks!

Sheryl Pieper: You really saved me a lot of money. My 30 + year old mixer works great. Thank you.

Bob Staples: Very helpful.  I used this to work on the exact model.  Thank you!

attrib230277: thanks for share ... is excellent your video.

nordia gayle: I have a Kitchen Aid Classis and it is growling. whenever I increase the speel it spins slower and you can actually smell the grease.

Dru Hanich: Excellent step by step video. I only had one problem. the planetary was very tight on the shaft. I had difficulty removing it. But quite a bit of difficulty replacing the planetary after I had replaced the grease. The shaft would move up into the motor head preventing the holes to completely align. I finally had the holes somewhat aligned. I used a finish nail to pry the shaft down. Also, my mixer is so old it didn't have a removable strain release so I had to remove the wires from the motor. Great tips of things to pay attention to.
