  How to Fix a KitchenAid Stand Mixer ThatIs Leaking Oil  Oil leaking form a KitchenAid mixer is a common issue, and following this aritcle's steps to replace themixer's gearbox grease will easily solve the problem.When the grease inside the gearbox of a KitchenAid stand mixer separates, the liquid part of the greasecan leak out of the mixer as an oil.The grease inside the mixer's gearbox can separate for several reasons; heat from overloading the mixer,not using the mixer often enough, and time are the most common reasons.To fix the problem of oil leaking out of a KitchenAid mixer, the old grease in the mixer's gearbox must bereplaced with new grease .Read the steps below for how to fix a leaking KitchenAid stand mixer. Replacing the gearbox grease cantake as little as ten or fifteen minutes with this professional repair advice. Access the Mixer's Gearbox  Fixing a leaking KitchenAid stand mixer is a four part process : accessing the gearbox, removing the oldgrease, adding new grease, and reassembling the appliance.The first part of the repair, accessing the mixer's gears, requires a little disassembly of the machine. 1. Remove the rear housing cover and power cord strain relief. The power cord must be freed from the motor, and that means removing the cord's strain relief.The strain relief is located underneath the mixer's rear housing cover.   Remove the rear housing cover by unscrewing its one Phillips head screw . The power cord strainrelief will then pull out of the back of the mixer stand. 2. Remove the planetary drip ring (beauty ring).  The beauty ring decorates the mixer, helps seal the gearbox, and catches leaking grease. It is heldto the mixer planetary with just a little surface tension.Use a flat head screwdriver to gently  tap the drip ring off of the planetary. 3. Tap the planetary pin out of its pin hole.  The planetary shaft pin is the last thing holding the planetary to the gear box.  Using a pin punch and a hammer, tap the planetary pin out of its place. 4. Pry the planetary off of the mixer.  The planetary can now be removed from the mixer.To start, pry the planetary off a little with a couple of flat head screwdrivers. Then, pull it off the restof the way by hand. 5. Remove the five gearbox screws.  Removing the planetary exposes five screws that hold the mixer's motor housing to the stand.Remove these five screws with a flat head screwdriver. 6. Remove four rear housing screws.  There are also four rear housing screws that similarly join the mixer stand and the motor housing--these also must be removed with a flat head screwdriver.   One of the two rear housing screws in one of the two rear-most positions will have a retainingwasher on it. Take note of which screw has this washer, as the screw must be returned to a rearfastener position on the motor housing. 7. Pull the motor housing off the mixer stand.  With the housing screws removed, the rear cover off, and the strain relief disengaged, the motor isnow free from the lower half of the mixer.The front end of the motor housing is actually part of the mixer's gearbox that attaches onto a gearshaft, so it will still be partially secured onto the mixer. Lift the motor housing straight up to pull it off the gear shaft and away from the mixer. Remove the Old Grease from the Mixer The mixer gearbox will have a large pile of grease in it. It's normal for the grease to be a dark color aslong as it hasn't separated.Before removing the grease, make sure that it's the cause of the leak by inspecting it for signs ofseparation. 8. Remove the old grease from the gearbox and motor housing.
