Husqvarna is the world’s largest producer of lawn & garden equipment, and the company is especially famous for its industry-leading chainsaw designs.
Just last month, Husqvarna chainsaws again claimed an impressive presence and performance record at this year’s World Logging Championship.
The competition was held in Zagreb, Croatia where nine out of the twelve metals won went to loggers using Husqvarna brand chainsaws. Events tested loggers’ skills in limbing, bucking by combined cuts, tree felling, and precision bucking.
If you’re not impressed by Husqvarna’s prowess in competitive logging events (they’re also the world’s largest chainsaw manufacturer, after all), it might help to consider all that Husqvarna products do outside of the professional sector.
For starters, the company offers large lines of custom fit homeowner and landowner models in lawnmowers, chainsaws, blowers, riding mowers, zero turn mowers, robotic mowers, and more.
Husqvarna even boasts the world’s only robotic mower with a built in solar panel:
Fall is a popular time to service all kinds of lawn and garden machines. Most gas-powered tools get tuned up, winterized, and stored, while chainsaws, blowers, and log splitters stay out to finish up the season’s work.
Now professional and non-professional chainsaw owners worldwide can order their O.E.M. Husqvarna chainsaw parts from the eReplacementParts.com professional parts warehouse.
Whether a professional, landowner or homeowner, eReplacementParts.com is your one-stop online parts resource for Husqvarna replacement parts.
Husqvarna mower parts and Husqvarna blower parts–like fuel lines and spark plugs–are also just a few clicks away!
Homeowners need access to two important resources to make their at-home appliance repairs possible.
First, they need an accurate, dependable parts ordering service for their tools, appliances, and machines. Then, after their parts arrive, they need the right professional repair information to guide their work.
With the launch of small appliance parts on our site, the eReplacementParts.com appliance repair team has been hard at work to pass along essential insider repair techniques to homeowners, starting with KitchenAid mixers.
KitchenAid stand mixers offer good examples of repairs that can be done at home to save money, because many KitchenAid mixer parts are expected to wear and require replacement down the road.
Here are some professional KitchenAid stand mixer repair tips straight from the eReplacementParts.com Appliance Repair Center!
When a KitchenAid Mixer Isn’t Spinning
A planetary that isn’t spinning is a common breakdown for KitchenAid mixers, but it rarely means the end of your valuable appliance.
Most of the time, a mixer’s planetary will stop spinning because one of its gears has failed inside the gearbox, and the worm gear is usually the one responsible.
Luckily, taking apart a KitchenAid mixer to replace one of its gears is a repair that homeowners can easily manage, even though it can take a little time. The mess can be a little fun, actually, and the money saved at the shop is definitely worth it.
Read our “How to Fix a KitchenAid Mixer That Isn’t Spinning” article to get the full scoop on this repair. The article describes detailed, step-by-step instructions for how to disassemble a KitchenAid stand mixer, how to replace a KitchenAid mixer worm gear, and how to reassemble the machine.
KitchenAid Stand Mixer Grease
The gearbox on a KitchenAid mixer is filled with grease. Over time and use, the grease in the gearbox can leak or go bad for a number of reasons.
In the case of a leaking KitchenAid mixer, opening up the machine and replacing the old grease with new grease is usually the best way to fix the problem.
Replacing the mixer’s transmission gasket is sometimes necessary to fix the leak.
Look to the eReplacementParts.com articles section in the coming weeks for repair articles and video demonstrations on how to repair a leaking KitchenAid stand mixer!
KitchenAid Mixer Speed Adjustment
A KitchenAid mixer’s speed control can sometimes come out of adjustment.
Fixing this problem requires removing the back housing of the mixer to expose the electrical components that control the mixer’s motor, then, several screws on the mixer’s control board have to be carefully adjusted.
This repair requires the use of a special calibrating tool provided to repair centers. Our Appliance Repair Center gave us a look at how the adjustment is done with the spinning calibration wheel.
When the KitchenAid Beater Hits the Mixer Bowl
Ever turned your stand mixer on just to hear the beater clank against the bowl?
Well, aside from being loud, the spinning beater making contact with the metal bowl actually causes unnecessary wear to that valuable KitchenAid attachment.
When it’s time to replace a KitchenAid attachment for “natural causes,” we hope you visit eReplacementParts.com to get the beaters and other mixer attachments you need.

Small appliances contribute to our lives as much as other tools and machines, and many small appliances see daily, heavy use to brew our coffee, cook our food, and otherwise make large, impossible jobs small and manageable.
Performing at-home repairs–like on small appliances–saves people money and is easier to tackle than you might think, usually only requiring common hand tools, like a screwdriver.
With the launch of small appliance parts here at the eReplacementParts.com online warehouse, now is a better time than ever to put money back in your pocket.
Some of us might be familiar with replacing a lawn mower blade or band saw tire, but not so sure about common appliance breakdowns and their repairs. So, just to get warmed up, here are five common appliance service issuesand the appliance replacement parts that can save them from a trip to the yard sale blanket.
Breville appliances, like slow cookers, juicers, and espresso machines, are some of the most high quality, owner-appreciated kitchen tools around.
But like any powered machine, blenders and other appliances are designed with wear parts that are meant to take the brunt of heat and friction. In the case of blenders, replacement blender couplings are an example of a common blender replacement part that can be replaced right at home without the cost of a repair shop.
Take advantage of the fast, accurate eReplacementParts ordering system to get the Breville Parts you need delivered right to your house. Even a large part like a replacement blender glass jug can put your appliance back in service at a fraction of the cost of a new machine
The time-tested KitchenAid mixer is the kind of kitchen appliance that really can last decades. Its weight alone should tell you that it’s not supposed to go anywhere any time soon.
One of their gears–called a worm gear–is a wear part meant for replacement down the road, can be replaced at home after a little disassembly, and is an inexpensive way to get more value out of your mixer.
eReplacementParts now stocks a full inventory of KitchenAid Parts ready for order, including KitchenAid mixer bowls, attachments, and worm gears!

Are you strangely attached to your Oster appliance? Considering the jobs that Oster breadmakers, rice cookers, and can openers do, feeling a little emptiness in your life when a small parts issue makes them unusable is understandable.

eReplacementParts.com is here to turn every household repair possibility into a repair opportunity, and we’re proud to do that by putting the O.E.M. parts that homeowners need into the homes where those repairs need to happen.
Tool and machine owners just beginning at-home repair often mention how becoming repair-minded makes it easier to spot money-saving opportunities. Before you know it, you find yourself applying your parts replacement knowledge to all kinds of machines.
It can also be surprising how many tools and machines we start to notice that actually contribute to our lives, ones we hadn’t given a second thought before.
Among the common household machines that power our lives–like vacuums, blenders and mixers–the popular Power Wheels
ride-on vehicles might be some of those that get overlooked the most.
Don’t be too quick to call these battery powered cars mere toys. Power wheels are larger than the average power tool and lawn & garden machine, and they represent an equally substantial financial investment for their owners.
Like all machines, Power Wheels are in need of regular maintenance and the occasional parts replacement.
Rolling that Power Wheels car out of the garage on a sunny day just to find it inoperable can be disappointing.
We’re happy to announce our support of Power Wheels parts here at eReplacementParts.com, helping DIY parents keep those awesome toys on the roa . . . uh . . . sidewalk with our specialized online parts ordering system.
Power Wheels vehicles are much like large, cordless electric power tools, being that they have an electric motor powered by a 6 or 12 volt battery.
In fact, if you’re a Power Wheels owner you may already know that a Power Wheels battery replacement is one of the most common Power Wheels repairs.
With the eReplacementParts.com streamlined parts matching search and breakdown schematics, it only takes seconds to find a matching battery for your Power Wheels product. Simply type the model number of your child’s Power Wheels in our parts finder and you will navigate straight to your product’s parts page!
Power Wheels batteries can be ordered on eReplacementParts.com from anywhere, and, with our international shipping service, they can be shipped anywhere too. Ordering an extra battery to have on hand is as convenient as can be.
Perhaps not surprisingly, wheels tend to be the next most common parts replacement for Power Wheels ride-ons. Power Wheels wheels are obviously essential for the vehicle’s function, and the good news is that they’re easy to find and replace with the help of eReplaceParts.
Search for your Power Wheels wheel replacement with the product model number and look to eReplacementParts.com’s articles and videos section in the coming weeks for detailed instructions on common Power Wheels repairs!
Do-it-yourself-ers experienced with tool and machine repair can tell you that saving money is one of the biggest perks of taking repair matters into their own hands.
Combine that substantially-lighter shop bill with our fast and accurate ordering and shipping services here at eReplacementParts.com, and home tool repair becomes more of a hobby than a chore in no time. More and more tool and machine owners everywhere are finding out how easy it is to begin a regular practice of proper tool maintenance and repair.
With the addition of the Vacuum Parts section to the eReplace inventory, DIY repairmen have a new area of home machine repair to benefit from. With parts pages and schematic breakdowns for every vacuum model, our site gives customers the confidence of knowing that the right O.E.M vacuum part is on the way.
Many tool and machine owners who are already experienced with repairing saws, lawn trimmers, and grinders may not be familiar with vacuum repair. And many vacuum owners may have little or no experience with repairs at all.
We’d like to offer a few reasons why home vacuum repair is a smart idea for every vacuum owner:
Why Should I Repair My Own Vacuum?
1. Combine parts orders.
If you’re already in the practice of tool repair, then you’re already ordering seasonally replaced parts for things like tune-ups on gas-powered equipment.
Wear parts, like electrical power tool carbon brushes, are also parts that are best-replaced at regular intervals.
Likewise, there are several vacuum replacement parts that also wear at regular intervals. Vacuum agitator belts and vacuum filters should be replaced so regularly, in fact, that it’s a very good idea to have a couple spares lying around for when it’s time.
That way, you’re never without the use of your vacuum while you wait for a minor part like a belt to arrive in the mail.
2. Don’t be without the use of your vacuum.
Often, a part of a machine will break that doesn’t stop the machine from working. Such is the case with vacuums too.
Traditionally, something like a cracked housing that doesn’t greatly affect the operation of the cleaner would still put the vacuum in a shop for a few days or more while the part was being replaced.
Thanks to convenience and precision of eReplacementParts.com’s online parts ordering system, a non-essential part failure doesn’t have to separate you from the use of your vacuum.
For parts like vacuum housings, just order the part right here on our site and keep putting that machine to work while we pack the part up and ship it out.
3. We offer professional step-by-step instructions for vacuum repair and parts replacement.
As part of our vacuum parts launch, eRepalcementParts.com is ready to offer both parts and information to help vacuum owners with their home repairs.
