I am working on one myself. I think it is worth it.

I have opened mine up and everything seems easy….I wouldn't mess with the electronics if you don't have to.

My grease was hardened from years of use. I'll let you know how it goes. I am having a hard time finding parts though.

Here's a link to someone who cleaned/greased their mixer.  Hope it helps.….._greasing/

I know this is a long shot, but I'm hoping somebody out there can help.

The good: a friend gave me an old Kitchenaid K45SS he found in a shed on his Mom's property.

The bad: The shed had been infested with bees, whose honey attraced roaches, who then proceeded to colonize the motor/housing of the mixer. Cry

About the mixer: The motor still runs but makes a 'funny smell', probably due to crud built up on the brush/motor.

My problem: I'd like to clean the heck out of this thing and make it work again. It was made back when Hobart still owned Kitchenaid and I'd hate to just throw it away. My time and labor are no issue. Has anyone out there ever cleaned such a mess up before? Is it beyond saving? Aside from the filth, it's in pretty good mechanical order.

Thanks for any advice.
