I need to do some tinkering with one of my Oster Kitchen Centres and I was trying to remove the motor.  I am stuck with the drive wheel that the mixer unit meshes with, though - I am not sure how exactly to remove it.  I thought it might unscrew, but I have not been able to do so.  Is there a trick to doing this?  


It's one of those screamin' 1200 watt motors; I don't have a model number but there is a service number 966-64F stamped on the bottom of it, if that may help.   


I don't use these beasties much, but I still think they're cool.... LOL

Ive got a bunch of them

But have never taken one apart..I do know the weakness is the plastic gears in the mixer arm, but I never knead bread with one so otherwise they are great, I have every attachment they made, Great little ice cream freezer!

yeah, never had to take one apart......looking for clues in this thread, just in case I ever have to....

trying to name all attachments that fit:
meat grinder-attaches to mixer head
ice cream maker
coffee grinder-two types
ice crusher
salad maker-slicer/chopper-should be 5 blades altogether
dough maker-just a certain type of beaters
food grinder/chopper

seems I may be missing something else.....most will also fit a base of an Oster Blender too...

I have several which I like a lot.....probably the only down side, when using the mixer, you can't raise the head to spin-off the beaters before shutting it down

There was also a pasta extruder, Power Puree & Ricer, mini-chopper, and juice extractor.

I've never taken one apart even though I have a few of them,nor have I really used them either. I had and regretfully sold the only plasti Chrome one I've ever run across,should have kept it but I got some good bucks for it at the time. They seem sort of flimsy , particularly the mixer head, you wouldn't
Want to do any heavy mixing in one I would guess.

Phil, that diagram will help for sure. Thanks!
I'll probably beg your assistance with this when you are down in Ogden next time...

I've inherited one of these machines and it sounds like there is a gear slipping. I am also stuck on how to remove the drive wheel so I can pull out the motor to take a look.

Has anyone figured out how to remove the wheel?

Welcome to!

Hi Vincent - I still haven't figured it out either...  The machine in question went back into the projects box and I probably won't get to it again until this summer (AFTER the '57 GE washer and dryer get revived...).  If I do find anything, though, I'll post it here.
