    I am replacing the worm gear in my kitchen aid mixer. The grease is full of shredded nylon so I think I need to replace the grease. Is there any particular weight or composition grease I should use. Any grease that I should avoid using?

    For model number KSM90Ww
    Hello Al, thank you for your question. Yes, it is most likely an issue with one or more of the gears. We would recommend removing the planetary and inspecting the gears for wear and tear. I hope this helps!

      motor would run but mixer wouldn't operate: broken worm gear
      My girlfriends' stand mixer failed when the accessory drive cap fell into the mixing bowl and jambed the beater, spliting the worm gear. The teeth on this gear are made of nylon and are molded to an aluminum center. This part is designed to fail in situations like this, saving the more expensive transmission parts. Following a repair manual I found online, I first removed the rear cover and pulled out the cord strain relief out from the base. Next I removed the drip cup from around the base of the planetary drive. I then used a pin punch to drive out the pin holding the planetary to the center shaft and removed the planetary. The unit was then inverted and I removed 4 screws holding the bottom cover to the gear case, and the 5 screws from around the planetary drive. The bottom cover was then lifted off. Three screws holding the worm gear bracket in place were then removed and the worm gear assembly lifted out. A small pin holds the worm gear to the shaft. I drove this out with a small pin punch and the shaft and worm gear were then removed. There is also a thrust washer on this shaft, and it's location is important. Make a note for re-assembly. The new gear was installed and the entire process reversed for re-assembly. A successful repair completed! My girlfriend would have replaced this $200 appliance, but I was able to repair it for less than $30 including shipping.

      The worm gear (plastic-made to be the weakest spot), three teeth were worn,
      I removed the lower unit along with the top unit, removed the gear, replaced the gear, then put back together. I removed the grease, saved most of it, then discarded what looked like the dirty grease. I cleaned inside thoroughly in case broken parts were inside. The three schematics were very helpful in re-installed. Mixer was 40 years old but works like new!

      Moter would run, but nothing would turn
      first removed the dress ring by tapping it very gently.then drive the pin out that holds the beater plate on, now wiggle it off, then you can see the screws that hold the gear reducer on. remove them. take that off and you will see the housing that hold the worm gear. remove the 3 screws that hold it down . Now you will have to drive the drift pin out that holds the worm gear in place, slide the shaft out then remove gear. reverse order to assemble

      Stripped gear when I tried to make Pizza Dough
      Very messy as there is lots of heavy grease inside the mixer and you have to fish out the blown gear parts. I vary glad I took shop class in High school as it preped me for the job. The machanical drawing you provide were very useful but you should mention the grease.

      Mixer works just like new. and I got the parts in two days with standard shipping. Pizza on Thursday and fixed by Saturday

      mixer would not turn
      removed the screws holding the mixer housing and then removed the worn worm gear by removing the roll pin holding it on the shaft. Replaced the worm gear and inserted the pin that hole it in place. Replaced some of the gear grease and reassembled mixer. Went very easily. No problems at all.
