Question about KitchenAid KSM5PS Heavy Duty Stand Mixer

KitchenAid 325 Heavy Duty Stand Mixer runs with low power & clicking noise

My KitchenAid 325 Heavy Duty Stand Mixer broke after attempting to knead a double batch of stiff bread dough. Now it still runs, but only at low speed and with less power--anything substantial at all, and it can't push through it. What's wrong? Can I fix it myself? I'm not experienced, but I am willing to try anything, and could probably rope my husband into helping if I get in too deep...would appreciate any advice you can give me.

    Thanks this is very helpful! Unfortunately, when my husband and I tried to get into the case, one of the large screws was frozen on. Hmm. I know this is a low tech problem but is there any way for me to get this off myself or do I have to break down and go to a repair shop to get it fixed?

Well there is a couple of things to try
1. see if kitchenaid sells the motor or
2. if a local appliance parts store can get the motor
this is the only thing you can do about the motor , the wires in the motor are shot and it will need reconstructing in the wireing, that is why it won't run fast and strong , because the wires have been heated up to much and now they can't create a strong enough magnetic field
but to replace the motor shouldn't be to hard just a little patience
if you need any more help just let me know!

    sometimes these screws can be very hard to get unscrewed , with the screwdriver on the screw tap the end of the screwdriver to try and loosen the stuck screw, it may take a little force still to get it loose , also try a little WD-40 on it and let it set for a while, then try agaiin later

    hope that helps that screw come out

Low speed noise


Check that the nuts under the back cover at the sides have a bit of nip on them. It could be the armature polling on the fields. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THOSE NUTS.

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.

My Kitchenaid mixer (k5ss lift bowl?) smells hot


I think you have a K45SS. It sounds like there is a problem with one of the gears, probably the worm gear. The worm gear is designed to be the first to fail if the mixer has struggled with a heavy dough or other difficult to mix substance. The best way to establish the cause will be to open the head up and check the gears for signs of damage.

Under a heavy load, the mixer began clunking once per revolution


Disassembly and inspection is the only way to verify what it is. It sounds like you are correct. I have bought parts very reasonably on line and repaired our K/A mixer. The better sites ( I think I used appliancerepair.com) have exploded diagrams. If you are tearing into yours, these are invaluable, and when you get to the broken part, you'll have a name for it.

Best regards, --W/D--
