My gears are not turning on my mixer. I am going to replace the worm gear, but am wondering what to do with the grease. Do I need to clean out all of the old grease and replace with new? How much new do I put in, and how often do you recommend changing out grease. I use my mixer a lot. Thanks!
Answer Steph, Yes, you'll want to remove all the old, original grease from the gears and shafts. You'll want to replenish the grease using at least 6 oz. of grease. The 4176597 is a high grade synthetic, food grade, lubricant and needs to be used for longevity and food safety. There is no specific lubrication schedule, only as needed when servicing the mixer during a repair procedure.
