Question about Food Mixers
I was told to tighten the screw that holds the hinge pin in place.
What other options do I have ???
This was a friends mixer and she said kitchenaid told her it sounded like an adjustment problem
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.

Turn the unit upside down and tighten the screw under the drive, this solves the shaking

Possible solution... with my wifes I guess there is an adjustment screw for the head to raise up/down located in the neck behind the top of the bowl, my wife was tweaking while I was google'in and she said the mixer was actually making contact with the bottom of the bowl and lifting the head slightly as it was turning (I would've guessed you'd hear that but...?) anyway my wife said she raised the head slightly and now between that and tightening the screw on the pin it's running pretty smooth.

Yes I agree. Run the mixer dry on a low speed with the balloon whisk attached. Is it brushing the bowl? If so switch off, tilt the head back, and expose a screw in the neck. Turn this anti-clockwise maybe quarter a turn, then reset and try again. Hopefully the head unit has raised sufficiently for the whisk to be running free. If not keep adjusting til the whisk turns freely without striking the bowl.
