Thank you! I'm repainting my white mixer a deep cherry red gloss to match my kitchen. These mixers can last 20+ years, if you take care of them. But, who wants the same color kitchen for that long? Bonus: saved $50+ by painting it the color I wanted, rather than pay the extra for a mixer from the colored choices.

Do the motor housing sometimes become to hard to remove? I followed all the steps yet it still acts as if something inside the housing is keeping it from coming off.

Nothing else, only the planetary assembly, and the 9 big housing screws. Once those are off, it can take a lot of jiggling and persistence, mostly because there’s a vacuum between the vertical shaft and the bushing inside. Remember to loosen the cord in case to prevent yanking it accidentally when the cover comes off.
