Thanks, Michael!

Try this one also, Nufsed; http://www.partselect.com.

It's a Whirlpool-affiliated website that sells parts for the K'Aids K45SS Classic and K5SS Stand Mixers, as well as for most major appliances.

And since you are getting the K5A, Nufsed, I think you might strike gold there, because those accessory parts for both the K5A and K5SS are interchangable with each other. Just type K5SS in the box where you must put the model number. your machine's model number might not work, since they stopped making it years ago. Which is why K5SS will get you to the part(s) needed.

I ordered and received a water jacket for my K'Aid K5SS from there, which will work with your machine also. Our machines are both the same size and dimensions Give it a shot! I hope this helps also.

I had to go back and look for these places that I ran across the other day ... but I finally found them. These are the best prices I found.

Try this one for the coated K5AB beater - $10 and free shipping. They also have the K5AWW wire whip for $13.

This site appears to have the best prices on the burnished beater K5ABB - $14.95 plus $4.49 shipping ... and they also have the burnished dough hook K5BDH for $16.95 plus $5.49 shipping.

Thanks for the links! Thats a better deal than I'd found so far, for sure. I finally got a response from the seller today...he had been out of town and assured me that the mixer shipped Monday, so I'll just have to be patient!

I'll wait til it arrives to be absolutely sure about it's identity before ordering parts, but I'm pretty sure these are the right parts. I do know for sure that its a bowl-lift Hobart, tho!
Thanks,
for all the help, guys!
Ricky

You're welcome again! Glad to help!

When you get it, please let us know if it works ok. I'm sure that it will, but I just want you to be happy with it. Thank you.

Yay-Yuss! Its finally here! Its actually only been a week since he shipped it, but I've been pumped-up about it since the sale closed! The unit seems to be in pretty good shape except for the power cord. The dough hook's coating is sort of 'puffy' at the shaft end due to the metal corroding a bit...I'll plan on replacing it. Tho I've wanted on of these mixers for a while, I've never used one and never even seen one used. I'm very surprised at how quiet this machine is! I am not mixing with it yet, I have torn it down to its base components for painting and to replace the cord. It'll be dark blue when its done! It wont be that cool cobalt blue, but it'll be as close as Krylon's selection will get. It IS a K5-A. While I've got it down, I checked the gears and bushings for wear and all seem quite good. This unit DOES have one nylon gear in the transmission...apparently to be the "sacrificial" gear in the event of an overload. This is not the worm gear (which is actually the armature shaft) but it is the spur gear that mates with the worm gear. Both the mixer shaft and the attachment shaft are powered by this piece so that the protection will be there no matter which output gets overloaded.
I cant wait to get this baby back together!

Glad to hear it!!

The website address above that I posted shows an exploded parts and
cut-away of the machinery inside for both the K'Aid K-45SS & K5SS.

I think the transmission parts in both machines are pretty much identical to each other. You can also order the bowl and beaters there as well. What will you make first when your mixer is set up? Good luck!!

Progress! I finally got 'er finished (ain't she puurrrdy?).
Probably not the first Cobalt K5-A, but she's MY first!
I stripped her down to raw-material-stage for the repaint...I was pleasantly surprised to find very little wear inside.




My first project is going to be starting from the basics; I have a book called: "Beard on bread" by James Beard and it seems well-written for a neophyte such as Yours Truly. I'm first going to tackle "basic white bread" then Parker House rolls, then the gloves are off! I could be doing croissants, meringues and lord knows what-all after that!

The sky's the limit you say!!

Hey, your K'Aid Stand Mixer looks brand new now!!!! Like the very latest model! What color was it before you repainted it? Sure looks nice though!

Nice idea to make it your avator, also!

Thanks for the kind words!


It was plain old white:

The white was just too boring!
It looks pretty good now, but I'm going to order a new lift handle 'cuz mine has a couple of rust spots that won't go away. I'll also need to get the proper plug for the attachment hub cover, the one with the logo.

Yeah, white can be kind of plain and boring. What is that thing next to the dough hook?

That's the color of my K'Aid K5SS now! But the portable washer and dryer pair & stove are also White. My K'Aid K45SS Classic is in Almond Cream with a brown decor band.

The Kenmore microwave and Whirlpool fridge are both black. The fridge has SS doors though. Was going to get the fridge in White at first, but opted for the majestic looking black instead!

But before you spend money on a new lift handle, try a little Rust-o-leum on it first. It should work. Otherwise, your K'Aid Stand Mixer looks so good now, as you gave it a new lease on life!!

I should do that too - make one of my K'Aid Stand Mixers my avator as well!
