KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer - Tilt is Tilting too Much & hits the bowl!

I'm not certain, but I think I may have overloaded the mixer when using it recently and now I've screwed up the tilt alignment on my Artisan KitchenAid Stand Mixer. The entire top part of the mixer that can lock into place, and what you lift up to remove the bowl, is now tilting too low causing the mixer attachments to hit the bottom of the bowl. This is causing the entire mixer jump, vibrate and shimmy til it almost falls off my counter top. I've tried to tighten up some of the screws, and now I think I have just made it worse. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot.

This may have a simple solution: This sounds like an issue of beater to bowl adjustment, which can come out of alignment naturally over time and with use of the machine.

If the flat beater is striking the bottom of your bowl, this may cause the locking mechanism to loosen and may cause the mixing head to "bounce" during use.

Your Use and Care Guide will cover the "beater to bowl adjustment," which you can do at home in a few minutes with a flathead screwdriver.

SOURCE: I can't find out how

On my kitchenaid stand mixer, the lock lever to lift the head is located on the opposite side of the speed control. If there is no lever there, check to see if there is a spot that looks like there should be a lever there, if there is, but the lever is missing, you might have ended up with a mixer with a manufacturing error. In that case, your only option is to take it back to the store where you bought it.

SOURCE: Head tilting problem

OK,Where the mixer pivots there is an ajustment screw ( Flat head). Place a dime at the bottom of the bowl and make your adjustment carefully ( quarter turn at a time).Using the low speed only, adjust until the tip of the flat beater barely touches the dime.When your done, you'll be back in business.

Where do you find the serial number for a 5 quart glas bowl for the Artisan mixer


The serial number for all KitchenAid mixers is located under the base of the mixer. You will need to carefully tilt the mixer over, and underneath the mixer you will find a label with the model number and serial number.

Is a kitchen aid model # KSM5PSAC the same as KSM150SP?


The KSM5 and the KSM150 are different mixers. They are both 5 quart mixers and use the same gearing and motor. However the bowl design is different. The KSM5 is a 5 quart bowl lift, which means the bowl locks into the arms of the mixer and raises towards the head of the mixer, where the ksm150 mixer is a artisan mixer, which is also a 5quart mixer, but the head of the mixer tilts back and the bowl twists into the base ring to lock into place. These two mixers will take different bowls and beaters.
Thank you,

Wobbling on inside of mixer when beater is rotating


If the beaters are hitting the bottom of the bowl, try adjusting the upper-head stop-screw located near the top of the lower stand--it determines how far the head drops down and therefore, the height of the beaters above the bowl bottom. Hope this helps!

Top section is tilting forwards too far


If you lift the top section up you will see a screw, turn it a little in an anti-clockwise direction to reduce the tilt.

Mixer blade is chipping


If it is a tilt head mixer then adjust the screw which can be seen by tipping the head back and looking into the pivot point. Turn the screw CCW to raise the head and prevent the paddle from hitting the bottom of the bowl.

If it is a lift bowl mixer there is an adjusting screw on the frame of the stand behind the bowl holder mechanism. It rurns a cam which adjusts the height of the mixer.
See pg. 13 of the owners manual for bowl height adjustment procedure:

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%209707917.pdf

clockwise to lower the head and counterclockwise to raise the head for more clearance for the beaters.

Mixer head is loose beater scrapes bottom of bowl makes loud thumping noise


I assume you mean that the top half of the mixer, above the pivot pin, moves with respect to the lower half of the mixer, the stand part. There is a pin on which the top half pivots which becomes loose.

Turn the mixer over and look up where the pin goes through the two pieces. There is a screw there which secures the pin. Tap the pin into position and tighten the screw.

Kitchenaid mixer makes a lot of noise. The beater


Hi - I've been searching for general info on KitchenAid stand mixers and ran across this so I'm throwing my $.02 in... Since KA stand mixer bases are essentially made of cast metal parts, there is a very slim chance that there is a lateral misalignment (side-side) unless it got dropped...eek! Sounds like a head height adjustment issue. Check out this from KitchenAid Conversations:

Good luck.

Can't get the screw adjustment to change the height of the bowl


I had a similar problem with mine - the problem turned out to be that I hadn't clicked the bowl into place corectly. If you find the bowl is tilting forward slightly then you probably need to push it into the clip at the back.
