Question about KitchenAid 400 Watts KN15E1X Accolade 400 Stand Mixer

Open Question

Why is Mixer jumping/jerking when in use?

I was just using the Accolade 400 mixer to stir liquids, using the paddle beater, and was only on stir and speed 2 and the whole mixer would jump/**** during mixing -- like the motor section would want to pitch up. I had it locked down, so the whole mixer was moving. Not sure if I need additional care/cleaning of the mixer or something else is wrong. I've checked the owner's manual and don't see anything about oil or other maintenance. It's about 3-4 years old. Can you help?

I have this problem too -it is rather common if you search the web. There was a suggestion posted on this site about what to do. See http://www.fixya.com/support/t125253-mixer_leaking_oil I have also read about other people taking it to a Kitchen Aid repair place where they repacked the grease for about $45. I took mine apart and there is gobs of grease around the gears. Right now I am still trying to figure out what to do. I am going to have my father look at it to see what he thinks since he is good with motors. The Kitchen Aid web site says that the grease is FDA approved, so at least it's not going to kill you if a little gets in your food. Their suggestion is to take it out and run it for about 5 minutes at least once a week. They say it leaks if it is not used often enough. That logic doesn't make much sense to me, but you could try it. Mine seems to leak more when I run it because the grease heats up and liquifies more. I hope that helps. I'll let you know what happens with mine, once it's fixed. Lisa

SOURCE: beater doesn't turn

I think this link will help you understand what is needed to fix your mixer.

You will need to purchase a gear. Here is link MarBeck should have it.

You may need to replace some grease. Make sure to use a non-toxic food grade grease.

I would first get some canned air. Spray out the area around the Shaft. This is to make sure no harden food is up there. After that is clean spray some cooking spray "PAM"in the Shaft area. This should help. Good Luck

SOURCE: kitchen aid tilthead mixer will not lock down

The solution for both of these is a large screw that sits at the base of the head where the head and the base meet - you'll see it when you tilt the head up. This screw should not be all the way in. You can adjust how low the head goes- in the case of your blades hitting the bowl you'll want to let the screw out a bit; in the case of the locking, you'll want to screw it in a bit more.

It sounds like the nylon gear is stripped out. It is a rather easy to replace and also inexpensive. A gentlemen posted a step by step site to replace the gear. The link is http://www.neilcrockett.com/mixer.htm

KitchenAid ACCOLADE 400 Mixer. When mixing dough the bowl jumps out of the bowl lock. How do in resolve this problem?


Make sure that the bowl is fully tightened in the bowl lock. If this does not solve the problem it may be that the lock disc itself needs to be replaced or that the amount of dough is more than the dough hook can handle.

Kitchenaid stand mixer 5SSWH 325 watts. How do I adjust the bowl height? Beater is too far from bottom of bowl. Thanks! Cas


There is a screw at the bottom of the motor head (flat head) you usually can't see it because of the top rim of the mixing bowl. hard to see and hard to reach, it may also be hard to turn due to "gunk" from mixing stuff (egg butter flour sugar) turn the screw counter clockwise to lower the motor head clockwise to raise it, you may also have the wrong size beater, it is not an uncommon problem, if you are the original owner and you have the original beater it should fix your problem with the adjusting screw, however I am not clear as to your model a 5SSWH would actually be a K5SSWH, which stands for kitchenaid 5 quart solid state white mixer, if this is your model number and you have the correct beater size then the adjusting screw will work to lower the head down, adjust it down using the stir or slowest speed just untill you can hear the beater "Ding" against the bottom of the bowl, then back it off a quarter turn to adjust properly. Hope this helps, let us know

I have just purchased an ice cream freezer for my mixer. It is an older model and does not have a "stir speed" delineated. What is the equivalent of stir speed on the older models? -- 1 or 2?


On models with the "STIR" speed, the RPM (Rounds Per Minute) is 60.
Set your mixer speed to "1" or "2" and do the following:
Put your hand near the Agitator shaft and allow it to brush your finger slightly. Use your
watch or clock and start counting the number of times the shaft touches your finger in
60 seconds. In your case, the correct STIR speed is 60.

First time using bread dough beater It was hard to put on and am unable to remove


Make sure your Beater can slip in and out of the Beater Shaft

easily. Do not force the beater onto the Shaft if the shaft is bent.

If it cannot be removed easily by hand, use a soft rubber mallet

(not a steel hammer) to slightly tap the beater so it can be moved

up and down the shaft or from side to side. Then you can easily

turn the beater left and remove it from the shaft.


From Kitchenaid Manual:

To Attach Flat Beater, Wire Whip, or Dough Hook

1. Turn speed control to OFF.

2. Unplug stand mixer or disconnect power.

3. Tilt motor head back.

4. Slip beater onto beater shaft and press upward

as far as possible.

5. Turn beater to right, hooking beater over pin on shaft.

6. Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.

To Remove Flat Beater, Wire Whip or Dough Hook

1. Turn speed control to OFF.

2. Unplug stand mixer or disconnect power.

3. Tilt motor head back.

4. Press beater upward as far as possible and turn left.
5. Pull beater from beater shaft.

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.
