    I used my KAid Aritsan for the second time tonight. First I made cupcake batter, removed the bowel and the paddle, washed and dried both and put them back on the mixer. I have just finished making icing, I removed the paddle but I cannot get the bowl to come off, help!

    I have the same problem when kneading bread dough. The bowl becomes too tightly screwed onto the base. I've made bread three times and each time I had this problem. Last time (and I do mean last time) I had to hold the mixer down while my husband used all his strength to unscrew the bowl. Not fun.


    I'll use the food processor next time I make bread. Sigh.

These bowls can tighten during mixing. One solution is to fill it with ice while trying to unscrew it. Soaking the base with soap is another solution. In the worst case, the bowl and the cap it fits in are replaceable.

I have had to use a homemade strap wrench on others. Be careful not to warp the bowl out of round, or it will be un-usable.

My bf came over and tried to push/pull it off and then using the base of his hand he hit the handle of the bowl and it came loose. So now I am careful not to push the bowl on too tightly.

I own the 6 QT Stand mixer. Is there a Is there a 4 or 5 qt bowl that works with this mixer?


Kitchenaid does not make a 4 or 5 quart bowl that would fit your 6 quart mixer, but other 3rd party companies do!
You may be in luck.
I haven't seen this bowl in person, but it apparently will fit your 6qt mixer. Here is a link to a page selling the mentioned attachment. It comes in a set, with appropriate wire-whip attachments:

Kitchenaid artisan mixer locking switch only locks 3/4 the way and motor head bounces when mixing dough, although is still locked down.


Make sure that the hinge pin is locked up firmly with the grub screw that is accessed with machine upside down on a towel. It is right up the middle of the pedestal. Next fit bowl & flat paddle and adjust head height with the screw that you can see when the head is raised up. The screw is right in by the middle of the hinge for the head unit. Screw it in (clockwise) a bit to lower and anti clockwise to raise. You want to screw it in enough to just hear the paddle tinging on the bowl and then anti clockwise the screw so it just clears. 1/4 turn from tinging is roughly it. If the head is still not locking down you may need to run a rat tail file through the locking slot to allow the lock better engagement. This is a last resort, if you file too much it is permanent and cannot be reversed so don't do it until everything else has been done properly. It's not a big job for your local Kitchen Aid service agent to sort out for you.

Where would I find a bowl lift replacement mechanism for a kitchenaid 5 qt mixer model K5SSWW.I have a kitchenaid 5 qt mixer model K5SSWW. I need a bowl lift mechanism replacement part but can't find this...


The model number seems to be valid-but given the age of the unit few parts are readily available. You might want to try eBay or a used appliance store (or even Goodwill) to find a donor machine.

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,

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


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.

Mixer bowl is stuck can not remove


I found a solution at kitchenaid.com. It says the bowl locks in the same direction as the rotating mixer moves, so slap the bowl with your hand a few times in the opposite direction, and then take vegetable oil and using a cotton swab line the groove of the bowl. Let it soak a bit, and then slap the bowl again and push it hard counterclockwise.
