KitchenAid Hand Mixer Beater won't stay in slot

The beater with the extra collar will not lock into place, it falls out before I even get it into the batter. Can the "collar-grip" be replaced? Where would I get such a thing? What is the real name for it?

    Yes, I have the same problem. I'm going to open the case to see if I can figure something out.

    The grippers have cracked or broken off in the gear shaft housings. I cannot locate the gears either. Please forward contact information if you find a source.

I fixed mine (my wife's). Kitchenaid 3-Speed Hand Mixer KHM3WH. Here's how I did it.
http://108.167.117.187/galleries/House%20-%20Enterprise/Kitchenaid%20HandMixer%20KHM3WH%20-%20Gearset3.png

This is a pretty old mixer. My wife bought it at a thrift store for $1. She brought it home, we found the beaters and whisk beaters on eBay. Paid $34.00 for both sets of beaters, but when we received them we found they would not stay in the mixer. Oh we also bought the alternative/replacement beaters from Sears, parts online. I don't think those will work with my fix. However with some $0.92 rubber washers from Lowe's and a heavy duty paperclip I fixed the mixer, and it works flawlessly. Maybe some stainless steel wire would be a better, more permanent fix.

Can I get parts hot kitchen aid hand mixer model khm7twh beater won’t stay in because plastic tabs are broken that hold the beater in


Hello, Joe -

From a post on a YouTube video demonstrating a McGyver-type fix to a damaged beater ring (the plastic piece which holds a beater in place) apparently KitchenAid has discontinued the availability of the beather ring.

This is the link to the YouTube video with the McGyver-type repair demonstrated:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CmS4FbROS50
The comment about the discontinued beater ring is from Dan Peters.

See the information here from KitchenAid:
http://producthelp.kitchenaid.com/Countertop_Appliances/Hand_Mixers/Hand_Mixer_Assembly_and_Operation/Beaters_fall_out

If you decide not to try the McGyver-type repair and choose to purchase a new hand mixer, you may wish to put the old mixer up for sale, to be used for repair parts (since it still has 1 good beater ring.) Or, you can send the old mixer to electronics recycling.

Best wishes.

The beaters will not stay up in my Oster stand mixmaster. The eject lever will not lock them in. Can it be fixed? Or could it be that I need new beaters because they are worn out and do not fit in


wild guess turn beater as you push in to allow the beater to engage the drive, a little like gears meshing. You should be able to feel it lock into the drive.

They need to be replaced or the locking mechanism does, but in the meantime, wind some thread around the beater end and this may keep them in temporarily.

How do I keep beaters in mixer without them falling out?


Each beater may be shaped differently and only will click into its appointed port. There may be a picture on the mixer showing which side to put each beater.

How do you place beaters in mixer without them falling out?


I can't find a manual for the MX55 online, Suzanne, but looking at the picture of it I found on Amazon and based on the manuals for other B&D models, it looks like you should have two slightly different beaters: one with a collar and one without and it's very important that each beater go into the correct hole. The one with the collar should go into the left hole (looking at the bottom with the holes at the top) and the one without a collar into the right. The other manuals say "insert each beater and, if necessary, turn it slightly until it locks into place." I hope this helps. Good luck!

Mixer won't turn on after adjusting beater height


The kitchenaid warranty is exactly 365 days from date of registration "No Questions Asked" on day 366 you have no warranty and you gotta pay.
Now the good news; first check the wall socket, I know it works but check it anyway. then check your plug, did you step on it while you were working on the machine? The plug often falls to the floor during work and can get underfoot, you may have broken the plug it'self. next you will need a parts list for your model from Kitchenaid's website.
http://www.kitchenaid.com/customer-service/manuals/
My first suggestion is to try a minor adjustment of the speed control switch, they often get out of sync when you do something to the machine. You can find several videos of this on the youtube site. "Adjusting the speed control switch on kitchenaid mixer"
If the two or one of the top 2 screws on the speed control switch move it can shut the machine down just like an on/off switch. Did you remove the back cover during your adjustments? Did you remove and replace the carbon brushes on the side of the machine while working on the machine? If you did you might have put them back in incorrectly, if you did they will also act a a shutoff switch. If you did not take them out then DON"T as there are four ways to put the brushes back in and only one way is correct and there are two brushes to deal with. Has work ever been performed on the mixer before? Because if all you did was to adjjust the beater height screw then nothing should have effected the normal operation of the mixer. So if there is anything that you did but did not include in your description of work you performed then please let us know. We strive to give accurate solutions but... as I am a KA tech I do not have any other solutions with out the machine in front of me. Just so you know you can fix this yourself.

The mixing section has a gap in between


Do you mean the beater is not touching the bottom of the bowl? AS in there is a gap between the beater and the bottom of the bowl so it is not mixing all the ingriedients?
If you have a Tilt-head style mixer, you can adjust the beater/bowl clearance by turning out the adjusting screw. Place your bowl on the bowl screw cap, Place the flat beater on the agitator shaft and lower the head of the mixer so the beater is at the bottom of the bowl. There should be a 1/16" clearance between the bowl and the beater, if the beater is too close to the bowl turn in the adjusting screw, and if the beater is too far away turn out the adjusting screw. The adjusting screw can be located by tilting the head of the mixer back, and in the neck of the mixer you will see a flat head adjusting screw.
However if you have a bowl lift mixer and the bowl is too far from the mixer there are a few different way to fix that problem. If the bowl and beater are too far apart start by adjusting the adjustment screw. On this mixer the adjustment screw is under the head. Remove the bowl, and beater and lay the mixer on its back. You should be able to see under the head a screw sticking out, it does not have a head, but a little slot in the screw, use a flat head screw and adjust the beat 1/4 turn. Put the beater and bowl back on and test mixer to see if it the beater has a 1/16" clearance. If it doesn't adjust the screw and 1/4 turn. If after adjusting the screw the beater and bowl still have too much clearance use a mallet and tap both sides of the yoke arm up evenly until 1/16" beater to bowl clearance is met.
You can use the same dime test in the bowl to make sure you have the correct 1/16" measurement for the beater/bowl distance.
Thank you,

Need beaters for a black and decker SM100 mixer


I searched for replacement beaters for Blacker & Decker SM-100 type 1 (SM100) electric stand mixer for years. I found the Sunbeam Mixmaster Mixer Replacement Beaters for stand mixers, item 4955, at a large Ace hardware store. They were priced over $16.00, so you may consider buying a new stand mixer. The beaters are the correct length, snap in and grip correctly even though the ends are curved like a half ball rather than flat as the originals. The beaters turns well but I haven't tested them with the bowl because I need to find the turn table that I have in storage. The beater set was design ed to replace parts for Sunbeam stand models 2355-1, 2356-1 and 2360-2.

I have a Kitchenaid 550 watt 6 qt. stand mixer model #KB26GIXER. I tried to use it this morning and couldn't get the beater blade to lock in place. Isn't there supposed to be a spring and washer...


There is only one pin on the beater shaft to hold the beater in place.
There is no spring or washer on the shaft.

To Attach Flat Beater,Wire Whip, or Spiral Dough Hook, simply
1. Slip flat beater on beater shaft.

2. Turn beater to right, hooking beater over the pin on shaft.

I have a kitchenaid ultra power 5-spped hand mixer model khm5twh. the second beater will not stay in the socket. i'm wondering if i'm doing something wrong or if the locking mechanism has given up.


You're not doing anything wrong, the retaining gear probably has one side that is broken and it will no longer lock the beater in place. I have the same mixer and the same problem.I have searched at least 20 web sites that carry Kitchenaid repair parts and the part is no longer available. My best suggestion would be to try a local small appliance repair shop that might have the part on hand.
