    sorry but what do you mean by proof, set longer in frig., or kneed?

  • Beth Brick Jul 29, 2012

    I let my yeast brew for 10 to 15 minutes, until it foams and smells yeasty. I find that this helps and letting the dough rise for however long it needs to. I do knead the dough a long time, which is why I burned up the motor in my hand mixer but I can tell by the feel of the dough if it's kneaded "right", it has a spring feel to it.

Hi. There are several possibilities. First, you should always proof your yeast. Take a 1/3 cup of WARM water, add a half tsp.of sugar and yeast, wait 10 minutes. If your yeast becomes frothy its active and can be used. If not, get some fresh yeast. Second, use a flour that has a high protein content (10-12%) if you're not using pans to make your bread. High protein develops more gluten than low protein flour. Gluten development will give your dough body, and prevent your dough from flattening. Third, after mixing. knead the dough by hand for 8-10 min., cover and let rise until doubled, punch dough down and divide. Knead the portions by hand for 8-10 mins. Shape loaves and place on baking sheet or use pans,let it rise untill doubled,then bake as usual. Been there...Done that. Let me know how you make out. Ricardok45.

Why can't my kitchen aid mixer turn n


Sounds like the worm gear was stripped. This gear is designed to fail when the load on the motor is too great. This protects the motor from overheating and burning out. By the way, the mixer should not be used above the number 2 speed when using the dough hook.

The worm gear is not all that hard to replace although you will have to contend with a lot of grease. See the Service Manual:

Kitchen aid mixer has a scream when using dough hook.


A little pin or setscrew or key has failed. Maybe a gear has slipped out of place. Anyway, the thing needs to come apart to find out what happened. When taking things apart, line up each item off in a tidy row, put screws in little containers near the part they fit.
Repairclinic.com may have instructions, and probably have the parts.

I cannot remove the flat mixing blade, after mixing cake. It has never happened before, just doesn't move up down or sideways! it seems completely locked.


The blade sounds like it's jammed somehow perhaps simply with some food matter.
Ensure the mixer is not plugged in then try removing the bowl, locking the mixer in the down position and pushing up hard on the blade to try and dislodge it. If it comes free and lifts up then try wiggling and rotating it normally off the mount.
Sometimes with use the attachments can become slightly warped requiring more force to lift them before rotating off the mount.
I once used my own Kitchen Aid mixer with the dough hook attachment to make a whole wheat bread dough. When I was done the hook was a bit bent from the hearty dough. There was also some flour in the mount causing it to jam. Removing the hook attachment proved difficult but not imposable.
Good luck.

Hello. I have a Kitchen Aid mixer made by Hobart between 1975 and 1978. It is a stand mixer with a 5-quart bowl that lifts and locks into place. While it was kneading a bread dough, the motor...


Hello Suzann,

I understand that you are having a problem with your Kitchen Aid 5 Quart mixer. It sounds like you have stripped the gears or the worm gear out. Although, it may not be an expensive parts repair it is not an easy task to complete if you are not mechanical enclined. There are many different little gears in these units.

My suggestion would be to take it a local appliance repair shop that works on mixers. If you can tell me the city that you live in I would be more than happy to give you the location of one or two repair shops. As the unit is so old you want to invest in a new unit and keep that one as a reminder of how long Kitchen Aid has been around.

Thank you for choosing FIxYa.com

No sticker/model number on the bottom of my stand mixer and am missing the paddle attachment and dough hook.


Since you have not given a make...I'll take a stab in the dark and bet you have a kitchen aid...simply because you mentioned the dough hook. Kitchen aid has 14 models of stand mixers. You can match yours up and look at available accessories at www.kitchenaid.com

Is 300 w mixer powerful enough to mix bread dough?


Your mixer is easily able to handle the kneading of bread dough. Please advise:

9 cups of all purpose white flour, maximum.

6 cups of specialty flour, maximum. This is any flour besides all purpose white.

Bread doughs are only to be needed on speed 2, and never for longer than 7 minutes.

This is all stated in the Use and Care guide for the mixer itself. If these guidelines are not followed, it may lead to a product failure.

Bread hook use


Use it to the side. This will pull the dry ingredients off the bowl. If the dough is coming out lumpy, make sure you follow the recipe exactly. Putting dry into wet will give different results than putting wet into dry. If this doesn't end the lumps, try a different type of flour.

This mixer has a control board on the back that has 2 contacts points, if it is out of adjustment, the machine will not run. You need to adjust the 2 screws at the top (where the springs are) to make the contacts connect. That should solve your problem.
