I feel for you Andy. A large recipe (triple I think) of pizza dough took ours out. I replaced the gear myself and bought a spare to have on hand.

I typically end up with parts left over and still have to take the item to a professional. Then I have to pay the professional extra to fix my screwing it up as well as the original problem.

While was watching that video, I couldn't help thinking he probably took that mixer apart earlier and reassembled it to make sure the parts would come apart easily for the video. A mixer that's been used for 10 years is not that clean and not that easy to take apart. While I watch that and think that looks easy to do, even for me, I have to remind myself of all the esy things I've screwed up.

Ha, ha, ha! You laugh, but don't forget the CYA in all the appliance manuals these days. Eg. for an iron, "don't iron while wearing garment."

It's a sad commentary on our society that a statement like that has to be added to instructions.

Not trying to be mean to Andy, I think he has lots of good sense, but he gets to be our example cause it is his mixer.

You take a guy like Andy, who has admitted not being all that handy with projects like this. He takes the laptop into the kitchen to work on this. Sets it up and watched the video and goes back and forth to use it as a step by step. He opens the back cover and exposes the green, white and black wires on terminals. Touches them while fidgeting with the front part and wakes up (hopefully) looking at the ceiling wondering when he had time to have an all night binge on tequila while working on his mixer.

It seems like very common sense, but when people do something like this for the first time (and possibly the only time in their lives) and are already nervous about it, they tend to follow the steps step by step. The first step in the video should be to be sure the mixer is unplugged.
