    Hey "Mike"...why does every "Mixer problem" have a response but mine? This site is a joke! It's just a scam! You won't get any useful answer unless you pay. Can I sign up for your Premium Assistance plan...please? I'm sure you'll be able to tell me something that KitchenAid can't.

    No "solution"...no "comment"...NO SH*@!

I would first get some canned air. Spray out the area around the Shaft. This is to make sure no harden food is up there. After that is clean spray some cooking spray "PAM"in the Shaft area. This should help. Good Luck

SOURCE: black stuff wiping off beaters of kitchenaid mixer

If it's just the wire beater attachment, then it's possible it's oxidation from the metal/aluminum. Did you put it in the dishwasher? The manual says not to put the wire beater in the dishwasher. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: Kitchenaid K5A mixer 10 speed only runs on fast, no slow speed

Pull the back off and there will be two screws at the top of the Speed Control Plate and a 3rd screw at the bottom. Tighten the top two screws down. bakerboy49203@yahoo.com. Let me know if it works.

SOURCE: Kitchenaid mixer. Top is loose so it bounces when

Hi MJANKOW520. I?m going to assume your KA mixer is a ?Tilt-Head? mixer. You don?t say specifically. Based on your description of the symptoms you mixer exhibits, I would say that your head locking mechanism (or a component) of it is either broken, worn or loosened due to normal wear and tear and need to be readjusted (or repaired) for it to keep your mixer head stationery. The inspection and troubleshooting of the inside of your mixer is a DITY capability, particularly if your mixer is out of warranty. Just be sure to have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home. Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case, try K45SSW, and select the file listed under Parts List (check to see it this matches your mixer model). This parts list manual provides an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the part name and numbers. Turn to page3, titled: Base and Pedestal Unit. You?ll want to focus on Illus. #9, Link & Lever Latch assembly, which locks the mixer head to the pedestal when run your mixer. Check to see if something is just loose, exceedingly worn or broken. If something has broken, you can order replacement parts and install yourself. As far as parts go, here are four potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com. Prices for the same part can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping. Once apart you can check for any other unseemly wear and tear on other mixer components. It can be messy but quite gratifying to diagnose and repair your mixer yourself. Finally, here's a link to an excellent site that details the disassembly and replacement of a mixer's grease, which might be helpful, too. http://www.foodonthefood.com/food_on_the_food/2009/04/how-to-repair-a-kitchenaid-mixer-yourself.html If you feel this is beyond your capabilities and would be too difficult to do yourself you can take your mixer to a local small appliance repair shop and have them troubleshoot and fix your mixer. KA Customer Care can provide you with the name and phone # of the closest authorized KA repair shop in your area or you can do a Online web search, but be sure to get at least three estimates before deciding to commit to one repair shop. Good luck. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA If this solution has helped you, please rate it, thanks! - hslincoln

SOURCE: KitchenAid Artisan KSM150BOB Stand Mixer won't start

It could be very easy. It maybe you have a the brush in the wrong way round or they have simply run out. They are on the sides under the black plastic caps. Although they will fit in the hole any one of 4 ways round, there is a key on one corner which means it will only go in one direction. Use a torch to look into the hole before you put it back in.
They shoud look like this : brush

SOURCE: do th gears in a kitchenaid mixer need oil

Hi SHIRLAFINK, you do not need to 'oil' the transmission gears on a KA mixer. Your KA mixer comes with enough grease to 'last a lifetime' - whatever that means?

Depending on the age of your mixer and how heavily you use it, there may be a time when you might want to replace the grease, but that period is usually measured in years of useage.

Of course if one of the gears strips or breaks, you will need to replace all the grease when you replace the broken gear. Attempting to use salvaged grease jeopardized the remaining gears if pieces of metal or plastic debris are suspended in the old grease.

I hope this helps - hslincoln, Burke, VA

The mixer motor runs good but beaters turn slowly and will not turn when the beaters are under load. Is this a clutch, gear or what? Any ideas? Do you think it can be fixed?


I found out by marking the shaft and gears with a magic marker that the main shaft that drives the sun gear was slipping. My cure was to drill a 5/32 hole a 1/4 inch down through shaft and drive a 5/32 roll pin through it and it solved the problem. See my picture.

My kitchenaid hand mixer beaters knock into each other as they spin. can i fix this?


This happened to me also, and it was because one of the beaters was no longer straight (bent just slightly, but enough). I found a replacement beater at a thrift store, and now it is fine. There were several replacement beaters at the thrift store... I'm guessing because many of the KA hand mixers are starting to die (the beaters don't 'click' in anymore).

I have a Kitchenaid Professional 5 Plus Mixer beaters won't turn


It sounds like it has been overloaded and the worm gear has been stripped. You will need to take the head apart to confirm this.
