Question and Answers

Q:

On the side of the head there are two screws that screw my mixer won't work I screw them out and so springs jumped out now my mixer doesn't work at all.

A:

 Hi,

 

Thanks for contacting  ManageMyLife.  I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your appliance.

The issue here is the spring are the brush springs and are there to keep the motor brushes tension correctly to the armature.  If the springs are missing they will need to be replaced.  Here is a link for the spring and the parts breakdown.  

Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help.

Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.

Hello, I have what I believe is a K45. An older mixer handed down from my mothers kitchen. I just had it disassembled and powdercoated. The powdercoater is not going to reassemble it for me. I will be putting her back together soon and wanted to know. 1. Are there specific parts that are not recommended reusable? 2. Are there kits available for standard rebuild? And any advice regarding the process of putting this machine back in service. It was fully functional when recently disassembled for powdercoating.

Thank you for your question.

The mixer only has food grade grease in it. Over time, the grease can separate a little and it looks like it contains oil. If the grease that is in the mixer is not contaminated with broken parts, you can reuse it. Just pour out the small amount of oil before reassembly. If the grease is contaminated you need to remove all the grease and broken parts. Then put roughly 6 ounces of food grade grease on the gears before reassembly. You can buy the grease from Kitchen aid or online. I suspect online will be cheaper. Just Google food grade lubriplate. I have posted the lubrication information from the service manual below.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life.
