Kitchenaid pro 5 --dreadful noise; filings

The hardest work i ask my stand mixer to do is knead dough. when under load of two loaves, it makes a loud grinding noise and deposits what look like lead pencil filings on the collar of the dough hook. have i putchased the wrong mixer or is mine just a lemon? the noise is present even if beating egg whites--but not the filings. it has been oddly loud since it was unpacked.

hello step ..... yes. You may have to adjust the height of the bowl a wee bit as it sounds like the dough hook is hitting the side of the bowl..

I have a kitchenaid 600 professional stand mixer. I was told that you can only use the dough hook with setting 2 for only 5 minutes. What do you do for recipes requiring a longer time for kneading? Is...


You can knead longer than that, but you run the risk of over heating the mixer because at that point the dough is very firm. Your best bet is to knead it by hand.

Kitchenaid Household stand mixer. Model no.


it is hard to tell you exactly what it could be, but a common problem is after a while the transmission gasket does deteriorate and will begin to leak oil.the gasket is part number4162324. the rattling noise inside your unit is most likely cause by a chipped gear inside, this can happen when the unit is put under heavy loads, such as dough. this problem could get worse as there may be fragments inside that will damage it more.hope this helps

Thanks

Used the bread kneading hook, after 10 minutes, smoking


The mixer motor has probably overheated, as proper use and care was not being followed with the stand mixer.

Bread doughs are recommended to be mixed on speed 2 only and never for longer than 7 minutes. With the resistance of a bread dough that is provided against the beater, mixing for over 7 minutes may overheat mixer and cause smoking.

Please consult your use and care guide to refresh your memory about how to properly use your mixer for making bread doughs.

Hi Susan. There is no worse feeling than the feeling you get when you find that you've been seperated from your hard-earned money by a company that markets a product with glowing phrases of what their product can do...And then doesn't deliver on it's promises. Kitchenaid mixers can make short work of bread dough NOT! My Kitchenaid HD Pro (475 watts) self destructed after only 30 uses of making my Sourdough Bread. The problem? A cheap piece of plastic that takes the stresses of two important shafts in the mixer. Cheap, shoddy parts in a mixer you paid top dollar for. Kitchenaid shows no shame in doing so.

What is happening with your mixer as it tries to mix your dough is that the head unit is thrust back and forth and side to side (bucking). Eventually hinges become loose and sloppy. Kitchenaid's behaviour is legal and beyond reproach, so make your next mixer purchase an informed one.

Goto www.consumeraffairs.com and do a search for your Kitchenaid model. You'll notice that you're not alone in your mixer troubles.

I solved my mixer problems by buying a used Hobart 20qt. Commercial mixer (A200) and rebuilt it. When mixing heavy dough you should only use about 60% of the bowl capacity. less, if your mixer is agonizing with the amount of food in the bowl..

You will be able to replace the thumb screw. Be prepared to wait for at least a month for the part to arrive once ordered.

Hi. Stop using your mixer. If your mixer is still covered by warranty, call Kitchenaid Customer Service, they are very good with warranty repairs.

If your mixer is out of warranty, remove the silver band that surrounds the top of mixer. Remove the top cover. At the front of the mixer, locate the transmission housing which is now exposed. Examine this housing carefully for cracks. If you find cracks anywhere in this housing, you have found the under-engineered plastic transmission housing. Kitchenaid's replacement housing is made of metal. Your plastic housing has no business being in a mixer that is marketed as being able to mix bread dough. It cannot!

If you're confident that you can make the repairs yourself, go to the Kitchenaid website and download the parts drawings. Remove the Trans. housing, remove the worm gear shaft assembly which is driven by the motor.. Remove and save as much grease as necessary to thoroughly inspect the worm gear. Inspect the worm shaft bearings. Look for cracks, or missing pieces on the bearings. Look for crunched cogs on all gears. Be prepared to wait at least a month for your parts to arrive after you order them. The replacement grease should be Shell Darina 2, or Chevron FM ALC EP 2.

If you're not confident about repairing this yourself, call Kitchenaid and determine the nearest "approved" repair shop.

You may be able to pressure Kitchenaid to pay for the damaged parts in your mixer. They are still installing these plastic Trans. housing on new mixers. Insist on a metal cover when replacing. Apparently, Kitchenaid feels no shame in their manufacturing process, and will not issue a recall notice for these housings. They are substandard at best.

If you found this solution helpful, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45.

Beater jams


You are going to DESTROY YOUR MIXER by kneading dough with the flat beater. Read the directions. They spell it out in big letters. Only use the dough hook for dough; only use speed 2.
If the mixer generated enough torque to knead dough with the flat beater (it doesn't), it would tear up and overwork the dough. As it is, you're lucky you didn't strip a gear.
