Title: KitchenAid roller / wheel fix
Post by: ayork on May 09, 2020, 11:25:42 AM
I have had several failures of rollers on the top tray. The video shows two types of fixes. First is when the wheel keeper fails and the tray is able to pull away from the wheel and rail, but the shaft for the wheel remains. The symptom is the tray sags down where the wheel is supposed to be attached. The second fix is when the keeper and shaft break off so there is absolutely nothing for the wheel to roll on. In this case, I used features already on the tray to hold a new stainless steel shaft that was added to hold the wheels. The wheels are moved back slightly, but that's not a show-stopper.
