Question about KitchenAid K45SS Classic Stand Mixer

1 Answer

Mixer head very wobbily.

I have a Classic 250, I have had it for 8 years. The mixer head has been wobbily the last few times I used it. Today while mixing up cookies for my son in Iraq, the vinyl on the paddle started coming off during mixing. Which must mean that something is loose somewhere. I have checked for anything loose on the outside , but nothing. Please help me I have alot of service people depending on me for goodies!

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.

Beater won't come off


I am guessing you mean the bowl is stuck. When this happens tap the handle on the bowl a few times. I usually use the palm of my hand.

My wife's kitchenaid classic 250 watt mixer wobbles on the base


It sounds like your mixer likes to take a beating, ive never dropped one and for good reason, they weigh quite a bit. first check to see if all the rubber legs on the bottom are still there. if they are the only possible solution to fix it after being bent or warped is to either re-shape the part using a tool strong enough to do the job, or to replace the parts needed. the hinge pin part number is 16910. is the base is bent the part number is 240151-1. If the lower portion of the mixer itself is bent or warped this is a serious problem and will require you to dissassemble the entire unit. part number for the lower gearcase is 240350-4 Please not that all the parts list are white in colour. hope this helps.

Thanks

We've had this mixer for a couple of years and only used it a few times. Today after using it, we saw what looked to be grease leaking down from the main area where the blades are attached. Can this be...


What is happening is the grease is getting hot for some reason and melting or has seperated and you are getting the fluid from the grease. If you run it for awhile , the problem should fix itself by the grease remixind. Your call. rebuilding is not practical even if you could find the parts.

You give it a counter clockwise twist about 1/8 to 1/4 of a turn or so and the bowl pops off.

If you need more assistance, post a comment.

Paddle beater won't push up and turn to release


When you are able to remove the paddle, feel the opposite side of the spindle. It should be smooth. The pin should not stick out the back at all. Carefully, tap it in until it is even with the spindle. That will fix you up, unless the pin itself is also damaged. If so, get a small file and remove any burrs from where the paddle mounts.

KitchenAid wobbles when mixing


The "wobbling" 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.

Also, leaking of oil in a stand mixer is not necessarily indicative of a large problem.

Kitchenaid stand mixers are overpacked with oil to last the lifetime of the motor. If the motor sits idle for some time (is not used), the oil may begin to drip from the gears and settle. Oil leakage may primarily be seen from around the beater shaft or planetary action.

A stand mixer can lose up to a 1/4 cup of oil before it needs to be serviced.

It is recommended to run the mixer on speed 10 for 2 minutes in order to redistribute oil back into the motor. In order to prevent future occurences, this is recommended to be done every 3 weeks if mixer is not being used.

KitchenAid 250 Watts; Classic: Leaking Oil


Found this,may be helpful.
Why do I see oil leaking from the beater shaft of my stand mixer?
Some KitchenAid® stand mixers that are not used very often or have been tipped may experience slight oil leakage from the shaft or hub attachment. To avoid the oil leakage, KitchenAid suggests that you run the mixer weekly for short periods of time. Generally, the mixer may lose approximately X cup of oil before repair is necessary. The oil used is FDA approved and is not harmful to consume, should any get into the food that you are preparing.
