I am trying to replace the worm gear on my KitchenAid stand…

Customer Question
I am trying to...

I am trying to replace the worm gear on my KitchenAid stand mixer (KSM90WW) and I cannot get that roll pin out under the planetary. Do you have any advice. It's probably been in there for 20 years.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your KitchenAid is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

I gave you the model -- KSM90WW and I cannot get that roll pin out under the planetary. Do you have any advice. It's probably been in there for 20 years.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I can't find a repairperson here in San Antonio or I I'd take it there. Someone mentioned a way to replace the whole gear unit and said that was simpler, but you'd still have to open up the planetary, wouldn't you?

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

No, I have a new worm gear, but can't get the roll pin out. Have tried pouring boiling water on it, but it won't budge.
