Kitchen Aid Food Grinder

Can someone tell me how to remove the worm grinder from the food grinder so I can attach the one for the fruit and vegetable strainer. I can't figure it out.

All you have to do is screw off the front cap where the die is.

Thank heaven for the "Instruction Manuals" - especially if they are online!

Here are the manuals for the Food Grinder Attachment (FGA) and for the Fruit & Vegetable Strainer Attachment (FVSFGA/FVSP).

Read the instructions - and if you still can't figure it out let me know and I'll try to step you though it (referring to the illustrations in the manuals).

Thanks, Michael.
I copied the manuals, but my problem is I can't get the grind worm out of the body. I have it all apart, but the grind worm will not budge.

Seems like it's stuck inside.

Do you know what's keeping it from coming out at all? Sounds like something's holding it in at the other end.

It finally came apart. I twisted and pulled it, and it finally loosened.
Can is put someting like mineral oil on it, so it doesn't get stuck again?

What caused it to get stuck in there in the first place?

You should try to find that out first. It might have been rust.

In that case, if it was, then clean off the rust and next time you use it, leave the parts unassembled so that it can air-dry completely before you re-assemble it again.

It is brand new, so no rust, food, etc. It is just a very tight fit.

You can ensure the parts are free of dirt, etc. so the part fits in and comes out easily. You can ensure the parts are properly lubricated. You can ensure you are fitting the parts together properly.

If you continue to have problems, the part or the recepticle on the mixer is at fault and you have a warranty issue.
