Very well done video. I'd googled a number of DIY articles on this repair but was discouraged to point of calling KitchenAid service. This video convinced me that it can be one at home. I have to track down some grease, view it once more, and then, it's a done deal. Thanks.

Great video, I will definitely give it a go, after I find some grease. Thanks for your skills.

Excellent video. Thank you so much.

Yes, an excellent video teaching. I have one simple question regarding the beauty ring... it slips down about an 1/8", and I don't want it to fall into whatever is being mixed. How do I got about snugging it on?

Btw...the mixer now works great! Thanks for making this available!

I googled this task, completely expecting to find nothing positive. I thought for sure I was out a mixer and up a creek without a paddle.
