Tools Used:
Screwdriver, Pliers, Hammer and punch tool
worm gear eaten up as designed
Our mixer stopped operating due to the blade getting jammed on an item that should not
have been in the mixing bowl. All my fault. Got on Youtube and found your series of videos describing exactly what had broken on ours. Took the mixer apart exactly as you described. No hidden "gotcha's" either. Ordered the new part from your site and put it all back together, again after watching that part of the video.
The video made it very easy and you made me look really good. This is what the internet is about.
Thanks for your help.
Sincerely,
John

There were actually 2 gears with broken teeth
Watch the video. I also had to replace the center gear which is not intuitive. There is a pin that goes through the center shaft. What I would suggest however which is not shown in the video is to remove all the old grease and replace it with new food grade grease. If like me you had broken teeth and a broken pin, you need to get that out of there so it they don't work there way back into the moving parts.

Screwdriver, Nail punch, hammer, square drive screwdriver
Worm gear was damaged when making a bread dough. The planetary head no longer would rotate.
Watched the great video by eReplacementParts on YouTube a couple of times. I then followed the instructions to get into the gear box. The only thing different was that some of the screws needed a square drive screwdriver. Fortunately I had one the right size.

Once I was sure which gear I needed, I went to the eReplacementParts website. It was relatively easy to navigate to find the exact part I needed. I ordered the part, it came in the mail about 4 days later. I watched the video again, and within 20 minutes I had the mixer up and running again. Was a good feeling to actually repair something rather than having to trash it.

Question: Try Again

bob18052

I got the worm gear from you. I put it in. I sliced the black wire putting the cap on the back. Tripped the ground fault. Spliced the wire back together with a wire nut. Tested the motor - it worked. Reassembled, but the planetary gear turned for a few seconds and stopped. Now what do I do? btw - the old worm gear I took out looked pretty good; it may not have been bad, but a new one is in there now.
Never mind. One day later and all is well. I took it apart (again) figured out why the newly installed worm gear would not complete a rotation, fixed that, put everything back together, and everything works great. THANK YOU!
Question: KitchenAid Worm Gear--am I Order...

1232755

Hi, I loved the video and I think the worm gear is my problem--the blade turns if there is nothing in the bowl but if there is dough--it stops and makes a terrible noise. I think replacing the worm gear will solve the problem. My Kitchenaid is a K45SSWH serial number WH1897380. Is this the right worm gear for that model?? Thanks for any help
WJA
Hello 1232755,

For the KitchenAid K45SSWH Mixer. You are correct with the part number for the worm gear, part number W10112253.
