My KitchenAid mixer is leaking oil. Does something need to be replaced or do I need a repair person to look at it?

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

It is about 20 years old. Not sure of the model.

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

Yes, if I can.

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

The leak drips down on the beaters.

Ok

This is a common problem with these units. The gear-case grease tends to liquefy over time and lose its viscosity. The gear case grease needs to be replaced. It is not that difficult to do. If you want to try and do it yourself, here is a video that may help you. I'm sure you'd like to have your mixer up and running for the holidays!
