Need to change the part that holds the bowl on an 80 qt mixer...
I have an 80 qt mixer. One of the arms that holds the bowl in place is broken. It is the same part that moves the bowl up and down on the track via the crank. I have another mixer for parts and I want to swap this part. How do you get this part off. I am assuming that you need to take one of the tracks off. Each track has 2 counter sunk bolts toward the top of the track. I have removed these bolts but the track still doesn't come off. Can anybody tell me how to remove this part

Look behind the slides there should be 5 bolts on each side,you may have to scrap because there painted over.From the front remove the stainlees splash guard,you will see a big screw.Remove the 2 bolts in the plate,support the yoke with a block off wood and remove.

The V-1401 has a power bowl lift that is belt driven by the same motor that is used to mix. Remove top cover to check the belt. If belt is good and not slipping, is the operator handle working on /in the bowl lift gear box? If not, could be broken shear pin on handle or worn out parts in gear box. Next thing to check is the output shaft of the bowl lift gear box. If it is turning when the operator handle is engaged and the bowl lift jack shaft is not turning there is a broken shear pin between the output shaft and jack shaft. If everything is good to this point the bowl lift yoke has a large brass nut on back side of it that the jack shaft goes through. If the nut is worn the bowl lift yoke will slip, fall and/or jam. to unstick and lower the bowl , one can turn the jack shaft by hand. WARNNING : if the nut is worn enough the yoke can drop suddenly and it is very heavy.
Kitchenaid does not make a 4 or 5 quart bowl that would fit your 6 quart mixer, but other 3rd party companies do!
You may be in luck.
I haven't seen this bowl in person, but it apparently will fit your 6qt mixer. Here is a link to a page selling the mentioned attachment. It comes in a set, with appropriate wire-whip attachments:
On a bowl lift mixer there is a small metal clip on the back of the bowl support arm, it works in conjunction with a small "NIB" on the back of the bowl, when you put the bowl on the support arm there are two pins that the bowl rests on, on each side of the support arm, you place the bowl on the pins then press down the rear of the bowl untill the nib locks into the clip, if the bowl is not locking in place then one of four things are wrong, one of the pins are not on the support arm, the NIB on the back of the bowl has come off (it is spot welded on) or the clip at the yolk of the support arm has worn down or broke in half and there would be no locking action without it. The pins or the clip are inexpensive if it is the Nib on the back of the bowl you will need a new bowl. Hope that helps if not pleases get back with us so we can FiXya.
I am having the same problem. I just noticed the piece of a part in the bottom of the machine. The hole where the bowl fits into is supposed to have a stop feature. Mine broke off and is in the hole beneath the lift arm. If you raise the bowl lift without a bowl in it, you will see a hole with screen mesh. That is where I found the broken parts. Now I have to find out where to get it fixed.
You have not supplied a model number and the bowl lift models are not all the same. A couple of items you could check, make sure that the bowl retaining clip that engages with the dimple on the pedestal side of the bowl is not broken. Make sure any bolts/screws holding the pedestal to the base or the pedestal to the motor are tight. Even if you supply a model number I can't think of anything else to look at unless the handle is not lifting the bowl up tight enough. I think on some models the arm holds the carrier up with some pressure which would help stop the wobbles.
Are you sure the bowl is locked into place? If it is, also check the safety mechanism that the bowl moves in order for the mixer to turn on to ensure that it isn't broken and is moving as the mixer won't turn on if the bowl isn't turning off this safety feature which is probably broken if the mixer start arm won't move.
This may be explained with the bowl assembly. Being a bowl lift mixer, please follow the following steps to make sure the bowl is being secured before mixing:
There are the bowl-holding arms on the left and right hand side of the mixer. You will place the bowl on these arms, securing it onto the pegs.
Also, take your fingertips and press down firmly at the back of the bowl where it is resting against the base. You will hear an audible click as the bowl secures down into a spring latch mechanism on the stand mixer base, allowing the mixing bowl to sit flush and secure.
