There's probably some grease available that's similar to the one that was there.

It can either be picked up at Home Depot, Lowe's, or an auto parts store, such as Lappens, Auto Zone or Pep Boys.

Also, you might want to order another gear just in case this were to happen again.

The manual asked to use 6 oz. of "Shell Darina #2" lubricant, nowhere to be found in my area. This is the one I was most comfortable with.
It's non toxic and rated to 475F. It's the same color as petroleum jelly.

As you can see the machine is assembled and works great.

Thanks again everyone.

That's right! You could have used some Vaseline.

But I'm glad you got it fixed!! Maybe I'll send mine to you if it needs to be fixed.

Dear Crash... I know this is rather late, but it's what I've done to repair a gear in my Kitchenaid. Remove the metal strip. Underneath are four screws to remove the top. Four more screws reveal the gears or you can follow the directions at the following site: Fix Your KitchenAid Mixer The grease you will need and other parts can be purchased at: Kitchen Aid Mixer Parts, Genuine Kitchen Aid Gears, Grease, and Repair Parts (Buy-it-now-store.com)

I can't understand it.

Looks like most of the transmission is metal exept for that little part. And to think that that inferior part is what powers the whole mixer from the motor!!

Thumbs up alternative to Darina 2

Castrol Spheerol B2 Bearing grease is a fine alternative to Shell Darina 2

Great website!

I remember the old 4C Stand Mixer. It was the next one down below the K45.
K'Aid stopped making it, I believe, in the mid '70s.
