Those look like real nice units. I've reconciled with my Kitchenaid after watching a couple of Youtube videos that show how to take them apart. The repair was easy enough and I added lockwashers...

Easy

The grease change was easy and only slightly messy. I found out that Kitchenaid recommends that you run it at high speed for a couple of minutes once a month to keep the grease mixed.

I am...

It probably should go along with the grease change. But it is not like a car engine head gasket- never gets that hot, etc., so I don't think it is necessary. If the grease is thick, the way it is...

Mine is not a tilt-head, so those may be different. Yeah, I don't think there is any such thing as "too" heavy duty with these things.

Grease

That was so easy I think I will change the grease in the transmission assembly, too. I just ordered a can of Kitchenaid mixer grease from Amazon. Also, according to one video I watched, the grease...

Thanks to everyone's help here, and those Youtube videos, I was emboldened to take the Kitchenaid mixer apart and see what I could do. It turns out that the head assembly is fastened to the base by...

Thanks. Now I at least know how to take it apart. My problem is at the other end of the head unit, but maybe I can see a way to tighten it up once I'm in there. However, mine is from that same...

I have one of their blenders that has lasted a long while, but, yeah this thing does seem like it might do just that. Still, for the price of a tankful of gas I thought I'd see.

Well I still have it. Repairs are expensive, though. But I have the meat grinder attachment for it, so it is still good for that, at least.

Thanks. If the cheapo Hamilton Beach doesn't work out I will try one of those other brands, particularly the Cuisinart. I can't even remember how old my Cuisinart Food Processor is, but it is still...

sorry- wrong brand

lol- no Hamilton Beach is the new one. Sorry. Anyway, it's inexpensive and seems to handle 3 1/2 cups OK. I can live with that.

The Mixer is Finally Here

The $80 Kitchenaid stand mixer is finally here. First impressions are that it is adequate for about 3 1/2 cups of four (for bread dough) at a time. It strained at 6 cups so I took half out (leaving...

475 watts, not 350

My mistake. It is a 475 watt model. Not tilt-head either.

Well, whatever the problem is doesn't matter. It shouldn't happen in normal, careful use. But it did, so I am not buying another one from...

No- it is the gear and a well known problem.

No, it wobbles back and forth mixing 6 cups, well below its rated capacity, which it never did when it was new. As I said, I did some research and there was most definitely a problem with the mixers...
