Height adjustment does not work

My wife bought one of the KitchenAid 450W 5-quart mixers a few months ago. All was fine until recently when she noticed the flat beater rubbing the bottom of the bowl. However, even turning the height adjustment screw all the way clockwise to lower the bowl didn't solve this problem. She then asked me to try adjusting this screw, but I got the same result: the beater still rubs the bottom of the bowl. And yes, we had the bowl-lift lever lowered in all instances. We'd like to know if we can solve this problem on or own before resorting to the hassle of contacting customer support. Thanks.

SOURCE: Beater is too low in mixing bowl.

the adjustment screw only turns about 1\4-1\2 of a turn. this is all the adjustment you have. It is very hard because you are lifting the whole assembly. try turning the mixer on its side to take the weight off

SOURCE: My mixer will not lock

Hello Wittwer,

I understand that you are having a problem with your head locking in the down position. This is a common problem when the set screw that holds the latch in place is missing. On the right side of the base up next to where the lock is you will notice a whole that has threads make sure that the set screw is there if not you will need to order a new one. Here is a link to sears parts direct where you can purchase a new set screw they cost $4.62.

Thank you for choosing

Tilt the mixer up, look at the joint where it connects to the stand under the "belly" of the mixer. You should see a small silver screw. Dialing it out will raise the head of the mixer, dialing it in will lower it.

The screw underneath the head of my kitchen aid mixer is tight, but the head is still wobbling. It isn't a beater adjustment--I already tried that. The head of the mixer is tilted forward a bit--in

When you have the head lifted up the screw you can see in there from the front in the middle by the hinge is the head height adjuster. You need to set the height correctly now so that FLAT PADDLE just clears the bowl. Unscrew it anti clockwise to raise the head. Once that is done turn the machine upside down on a towel and check that the locking screw on the hinge pin is tight, it\'s right up inside the pedestal.

Kitchenaid mixer speed

If it has suddenly got high speed all the time and the two adjustment screws at the top of the speed control board are not loose and have not been messed about with the most likely solution will be to replace the phase board. That's the little PCB just above the speed control board with the 6 wires coming out of it.

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

4 1/2 quart kitchenaid mixer head jumps when mixing

Adjusting the screw didn't work for me the first time I tried it.  I was afraid of loosening the screw too much, and so I didn't turn it far enough.  Turning the screw counter-clockwise until it stuck out several millimeters finally worked.

The locking pin on the Kitchenaid Artisan mixer (KMS150) will not fully engage. The hinge pin had come out and we put that back in, not the lever will not fully engage.

I had the same issue. I just finished tearing mine apart only to find that the lock just wasn't engaging with a slot in the base of the mixer. Try lifting up the head of the mixer to expose the height adjust screw in the hinge between the base and the head. By tightening mine down a couple of turns, the lock can engage the slot again and the lock works. You may have to do a little tweaking to find the right balance between height adjustment and latch functionality, but at least you won't have to tear your mixer apart like I did!

Kitchenaid Classic -Mixer Head wobbles or shakes back and forth

Lay the mixer on its side and look up through the base. You willnotice a small set screw. This holds the pin tight. If the set screw gets loose the pin willl begin to move out and the head will wobble. Simply tighten the set screw. I just did this to my Kitchenaid mixer 10 minutes ago and it now works fine.

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.
