Reducing noise on Kitchenaid stand mixer

Skip2 | Nov 4, 201902:30 PM     6

I have a 20+-year-old KSM that is a tank -- still has lots of Hobart DNA and parts. Has a nice solid sound to it. I just bought a KSM Professional 5 Plus for my granddaughter and was taken aback by how much louder it is, a much harsher sound (noise) as well. I'm thinking there might be a way to line the inside of the motor cowling/case to deaden some of that noise. I know that's a greasy place in there, but if there is enough clearance, I thought I'd give it a try. Has anyone else tried anything as crazy as that?
