gear oil seems dry because it smells burnt can I oil it?
My old mixer gear oil seems dry because it smells burnt can I oil it?
Which oil is recommended
Onyeakpo Chinedu you did not tell us what make and model your mixer is. If it is a Kenwood Chef then there is no oil in the gearbox. It uses grease in the gearbox. Yes, you can replace that and since it is a sealed box you do not need to use food grade grease but can go to regular white lithium grease or even more expensive Moly grease. Just remove the old grease and clean the gearbox properly. Disassembling Kenwood Chef A701A Gearbox and Orbital Mixer assembly
