our mixer broke, so I took it apart and I found a metal piece where
the teeth were gone, so I guess this is it, and ordered a new part:
All the gears in the casing were all in a lot of grease. I took it out
assuming it contained some scraps of metal. I assume I need to put
some new grease back in: do they sell this grease at home depot or
lowes? What is the name ? I guess I will try to put back as much as
originally in the casing.
Your first call should be manufacturer customer service. They may
possibly even send you the right stuff. Failing that, a heavy duty
bearing grease should work. Lithium based greases are not so good
(those are the yellowish ones best for boat trailer wheels). Good
Probably something like a food grade grease for food handling
equipment. Lubriplate manufacturers a few.
I replaced the main drive gear in a KitchenAid several years ago and reused
all the grease. Its made many, many loafs of bread since with no issue.
Unless you were to clean and replace all the grease to remove microscopic
particles, I think the effort may not be productive. Did the manufacturer
I had the same problem, same machine. Went to my DeWalt (and others) power
tool repair place and they offered to sell me a few ounces (half the size of
a pack of cigarettes) for $ 89. Yes, Eighty-nine dollars. Decided to put
the old grease back in. Mixer is working fine.
