SOURCE: Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer won't release beater

I had this same problem as well.  The beater was stuck like glue to the rotating arm, and it would not budge with any amount of pressure.  I tried the cooking spray and it did nothing.  But today I put a rag in hot/boiling water and then carefully wrapped it around the top of the beater.  I let it sit for 10 minutes. Then I put the rag in hot water again and repeated the process for about another 5 minutes.  When this was done, I covered the beater in a towel (to protect it) and forcefully tapped (ok... I pounded) it with the flat side of my meat tenderizer (it was all I had...you could use a mallet or hammer).  It took a little bit of work because I had to hammer it from the bottom, then the side, then the top to get the little spoke guided through the shaft.  But it did finally come off.  After cleaning with hot water, I put the beater on again and noticed that it was still a little hard to get on/off.  So, I put a little bit of veg. oil on it, and it seems to be better.  Going forward, I will be sure to clean the top of the beater & arm after each use and then coat it with a little oil to keep from sticking.  Best of luck!

SOURCE: Kitchen aid stand mixer bought in US, moving to Europe, 220v 50hz

I can not respond to the warranty issues. My kitchen aid mixer is past warranty as well. I live in a country that uses 220V and my kitchen aid mixer is 110V. I have been using my kitchen aid mixer for almost 4 years with no problems at all.

The converter boxes are supposed to blow the fuse on the converter before it reaches your appliance and cause any problems.

If you purchase a 220V kitchen aid (although it would cost more money) it would probably have more power because of the higher voltage.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: i have a kitchen aid stand mixer KG25HOXWH.

Hi ZPAORUSKI. I suspect your switch problem has to do with the speed control assembly inside your mixer’s head, and yes you can order and replace it.
The inspection and troubleshooting of the inside of your mixer is a DITY capability, particularly if your mixer is out of warranty. Just be sure to have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home. Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case: KG25H0 (use zero and not ‘O’), and select one of the last two files listed under Parts List (9) (check to ensure this matches your mixer model. KA made a -4 series and a -5 series with slightly different insides, so make sure you have the correct Parts List manual.) For a series -4 mixer, turn to pgs. 2 & 3, titled Case, Gearing And Planetary Unit that shows an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the parts. Locate Illus. No. 8, Control Assembly. This is where I suspect your problem lies. (For a series -5 mixer, turn to Pgs 4 & 5, and locate Illus. No. 18, which is the speed control assembly).
First inspect around the controller assembly to ensure that all the wire connections are OK. It's possible a connection has come loose. Unfortunately the whole controller assembly is fabricated on a little PC board filled with resistors, capacitors and other electronic parts, which was not meant to be 'home fixed'. My 'expertise' ends at being able to recognize a resistor from a capacitor, but I don't get much deeper than that. A local small appliance repair shop should be able to determine if the controller assembly is functioning properly or not.
As far as parts go, here are four potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com. Prices for the same part can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
Once apart you can check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the gears, etc. It can be messy but quite gratifying to diagnose and repair your mixer yourself.
If you feel troubleshooting and repairing is beyond your capability, then I would seek out a local small appliance repair shop in your area. KA Customer Care can give you names of local KA authorized repair shops in your area, but you can also do an online search to supplement what KA may provide you. Call to explain your circumstances and find out their hourly rate and get an estimate of what they think it would cost to repair your mixer. Also, always obtain three or more estimates – do some comparison shopping. Good luck. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

Can I use lucas oil white lithium in my stand mixer


They do not use oil at all, they use food grade grease. Any oil that is dripping out is the liquids separating out from the solids in the grease. You either need to open it up and stir the grease u again or remove the old grease completely and repack it with new stuff.

I dont know what else to add other then the oil came out of the mixer when i moved and i do not know what type of oil to put back in it and where do i put it in to the mixer on my kitchen aid mixer


Wipe the oil off and carry on. Over time the gearbox grease breaks down and oil separates from the grease solids. Eventually the gearbox will need to be repacked with new grease. Don't worry about a drip or two in a cake, it's food grade grease so harmless.

What kind of grease can be used on a stand mixer after replacing a stripped worm gear? model:K45SS


Food grade grease is what Kitchen Aid put into the gearbox originally. They do supply it as a spare part if you cannot find it as a non Kitchen Aid part.

Food made with KitchenAid Stand mixer tastes like grease


The likelyhood of grease coming from the mixer is extremely small. As long as the beater & bowl were washed first and the shortening you used was fresh, there shouldn't be a grease taste.

Can the Kitchen aid accessories fit the Wolfgang puck stand mixer


If you happen to have a friendly toolmaker with a small metal lathe it should not be too difficult to modify KITCHEN AID accessories that fit on to the front powwer outlet. However Puck Stand Mixer accessories are occasionaly offered on the Web. Meat grinders are very common and original Puck pasta maker have also been seen. Get searchin'!
