The chrome ring around the rotating head needs tapped off to and drive the pin out of the center shaft of the head. Pry it off to access 5 ring gear screws under the head. The also hold the two halfs of the case together along with the 4 obvious ones.

Why wont my classic kitchenaid mixer switch off


Good Morning,

There is a spring inside your mixer attached to the speed control switch and speed control arm, the spring can sometimes get caught on the slide bar that is just below it inside the mixer. The other reason is that the speed control switch plate in the rear of the machine (that the spring attaches to) vibrates the three speed adjustment screws out or in and the spring will pull the speed switch (control arm that you use to control mixing speed when using the mixer) back to the stir position after you try to turn the mixer off.

If it is a spring problem you will have to do a full tear down to get at the spring and either free it or replace it. If it is a problem with the adjustment screws on the speed plate, that can be handled at the rear of the machine and is twice as easy to get at but sometimes much more frustrating to adjust. There are "YouTube" videos on the internet that will walk you through the process of adjusting your speed control plate just Google "adjusting speed on kitchenaid mixer" I hope this helps. please let us know if it does and if you have other questions just post them here and we will "FixYa"

No power on kitchenaid mixer


Apart from checking a fuse, there is little more you can do. Did you notice a loss of power or burning smell the last time you used this? What make and model you have may help others identify a known problem with your machine.

Kind Regards, Dan.

I have a new kitchenaid mixer and both times i've used it the cake did'nt come out right, it was bland and it fell apart and that never happened before. what did I do wrong?


It could be that your over mixing the batter. It is very easy with a KitchenAid to push a batter too far, and you get too much air, or cream the butter too much into the flour, or press all the oil out of peanut butter. Try using the mixer for only as much to get the matter mixed.

Brushes stuck, afraid i put them back in wrong. now they wont come back out with the spring when i take the black plug out. no power when i turn on the switch.


you can access the brushes from inside the mixer if you take it apart. Look at the parts diagram here to see if you can figure out how to disassemble it:

Once you have it apart you can use a small screw driver to push the brushes out from the inside.

How to oil kitchenaid stand mixer


First disconnect the power. After this You will need to disassemble the unit by first removing the access panel at the rear of the unit. Now you can remove the siler band around the mixer. Remove this and then also remove the screws around the upper housing. After removing these, tilt the unit to reveal two more screws. Remove these and now you can remove the upper housing by lifting the housing while slightly twisting it. After this is removed you can now see the main gears and the motor. To grease the inside gears, you will need to simply move the old grease that has been moved around and put it back onto the gears. I would also inspect the grease very carefully as sometimes there can be chunks of plastic or metal in it. Whirlpool puts more than enough grease inside the mixer to last its entire life, and the only time you ever really need to change it is if your gears have been destroyed and now is contaminating the grease.Hope this helps.

Thanks

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.

Kitchen Aid Classic mixer


There are 2 possibilities, the attachments are worn out where they go on the shaft, simply replacing them could fix it, the other is the shaft is worn out inside the planetary ( where it spins), if it moves allot, 1/8 " or more from side to side, the housing is probably worn, and the planetary needs to be replaced, easy job, don't know cost, a new mixer may be in order.
