Justin Brown: the retaining pin is stuck on mine...
Jen Woodring: Is the fix the same for non-tilt head mixers? ( I haven't had time to see
the whole video yet, so please forgive me if you did mention it)
Thanks so much for posting this- I live in the desert and my grease breaks
down from being stored in a hot kitchen climate with not enough
Matthew Hillyard: Hi I've just made a 1.5ltr pan if curry and a little grease dripped in
(quater of teaspoon) I tried to scoop this out with a spoon, would this
still be safe to eat? Thanks
antoniodoss: Hi I have a question, mine is leaking a little bit of oil form the middle
front and back. How much leaking must be in order to change the grease?.
The mixer has 2+ year with a medium usage. There is other symptom?. Thx a
Keshav Ambuga: Hey, The tilt head on my KitchenAid Artisan is really tight. And I see the
metal rubbing on one side every time I lift the head up. Could you please
help out! Thanks
Jeffrey Jackson: Thanks for the great video! Never would have tackled this without some
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
pennyflyers: Hello,just wanted to say thanks for the video,I bought a K 45 stand mixer a
few weeks ago that was in pristine condition at a yard sale for 50
dollars,It is so nice i had my wife make me a slip cover for it,anyway i
wanted to change the grease it and your video made that task very simple,5
STARS to you thanks again.(:(:(:(:(:
D.R. Gradybooks: Thank you! Mine is leaking and now I know why!
Jim Ranes: Thanks Mark for your exemplary demonstration on how to replace the grease
when the light oil separates from the grease in the gears! Well done!
Stephen Garfield: You made this seem easy Thanks.
Kevin Coburn: Worked like a charm. Thanks for the cheap fix!
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
nancy rhodes: Got most of it it apart... re-watching re the Planetary gear part.. Great
video inspired me to try and fix my own (broke the carbon brush... repair
place said to take the head off... so this video is my guide)
missmylo68: Hi great vid,i have a grundig one,is pretty same as the artisan,it just
stop working,what i should look into? Used to make a noise of the motor but
it doesn't anymore or where i can find someone capable to repairing my
mixer in the uk?THANX.
Lisna Utama: Why my kitchen aid mixer hinge is so hard to push in? Please help. Thanks
snackinallday: Great tutorial - thank you!
Eduardo Ramírez: I JUST ASK IN YOUR OTHER VIDEO, ABOUT DRIPPING GREASE.
I SAW THIS VIDEO, AND MY QUESTION IS ANSWERED
THANK YOU AGAIN. BASICALLY IS THE SAME VIDEO, SOLVING TWO DIFFERENT
PROBLEMS. NO SPINNING AND DRIPPING GREASE.
NOW I AM SURE I CAN SOLVE THE PROBLEM.
GRACIAS , Eduardo Ramirez, de México.
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?
Lynn Metcalf: Thank you. Very well done!
Thomas Shellabarger: Great help! but.... the speed of the mixer since I've 'fixed' it is fast
and nonadjustable. what to do?
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.
Tiffany Dugan: Where did you get that big bucket of grease?
Michael Herrera: You saved me a bunch, I'll tell you that! Following your video made this
chore soooooo easy...Hard to believe. Thanks a million.
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.
Tessa Rollins: Here's my Tuesday night excitement. Hopefully it will do the trick!
Gilles Morin: Many thanks Mark,
Your instructions are excellent and so easy to follow. You saved me time
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?
Da Br: actually it may have been leaking down the front
Marya DeBlasi: Hi mark, et al.
My mixer is leaking from the planetary gear.
Do you suppose I should follow the same procedure, or could the problem be
Mr Miller: Just did this, thanks: great tutorial, no probs!!
bath room: I'm not able to get the pin out. Is there a trick to this? Is the pin
paladine9797: How do we properly dispose of the old grease?
Nick Messina: Thanks for the video, Mark !!!
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.
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!
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
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.
Mike Howeth: I did this repair and now I plug it in and it won't turn on. Please help!!
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.
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!
Da Br: I just bought one of these at a gararge sale. Plugged it in and the motor
sounds like its grinding a little. And there were signs of oil leaking
down the back. Would replacing the grease like you did in this video help
TheSweetLadyBug SweetShop: How can I recognize the problem? thks.
Amy Torre: I have an older KitchenAid stand mixer. It does not tilt back, and the
screws are in slightly different spots. I can't remove the top to get to
the motor. Does anyone have a video of taking apart this older model K5SS
KitchenAid stand mixer. I want to change the greece and give it new life!!
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!
chris319: Great video! Very helpful. Thanks for making it.
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.
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!
Phil Greiner: Great video but it doesn't work for me at the end when putting the
planetary back on. The mixer shafter has some vertical play, meaning that
it can move about a quarter inch up into the housing. When putting the
planetary back on, it pushes the shaft up into the top housing enough that
the hole for the punch is completely covered over with no way to get it
back down. Any tips?
