My KA stand mixer fell over on its side during transportation - it was only on its side about 15 min. I see no oil leaks but it will not start. It is a KA Professional 5 Plus, approx 2 1/2 yr old

I don't think that model will ever have an oil leak, there is far less lubrication in the gears compared to the earlier models. You are going to have to remove the top cover & check all the connections for continuity. One of them may have come unplugged or be a bit loose. Remove the screw at the back holding the trim band on and then the 4 screws you can then see. Lift the cover off & check all the connections you can see. I vaguely remember there being a couple of wires plugged together towards the back that I once found to be the cause of no go.

How doI fix mixer that leaks oil out beater holes

There ate two ways to fix this problem, but first there is the matter of understanding what is leaking. The oil you see leaking is actually a food safe vegetable based gear grease. The grease separates during heavy use (years of service) or when the mixer has not been used for an extended period of time. (months or years) The recommended way to fix the problem is to do a full tear down then clean then add new grease and a new gasket, cost (By Kitchenaid at a KA service center) around $140.00 US + or -, It involves shipping and around ten days in time. The second way is kinda simple and does not cost anything. Get a towel, thick and soft to protect your finish, get your wife or husband, get an extension cord, spread the towel out on an open counter top, plug the extension cord into the outlet, turn the mixer upside down on the towel, have your significant other hold the mixer by the base while you plug the mixer cord into the extension cord, turn on the mixer no more than 2 or the second click on the speed control switch / lever, hold the mixer upside down like this while the mixer is running and keep it running for at least three (3) minutes, turn the mixer off and turn it right side up and turn on again for two minutes, then do it again two or three more times, upside down for a couple minutes then back right side up and so on and so on, after about 15 minutes stop. put everything away, you are done. What you have effectively done is re-mix the grease and it should be good for another couple of years. When it starts to leak again re-mix again. Or send it to KA for the rare and unique opportunity to spend a hundred bucks that you don't' want. hope this helps. By the way if you get some drops in your mix it will not hurt anybody. But you do not want to eat a great deal of it or you will require the use of a laxative afterwards.

Hobart P660 keeps shutting off and tripping the breaker

Sounds like the cable is too small. If you're hooking it up to 15 amp breaker you need the correct diameter size extension cord, and the equipment cannot be rated more than 15 amp or you'll have a problem. I perceive this may be the solution based on the fact that you said that the motor was not coming up to speed.

Laid down kitchen aid mixer for a couple of hours leaked a little oil

Your mixer has a vegetable based lubricating grease in it, that grease can separate from time to time. One way is non use the other way is end of life from normal use.

If you do not use your mixer regularly, get a towel and put it on the counter, get your mixer and turn it upside down on the towel (to protect the finish) turn the mixer on while holding up the mixer (balance it) run the mixer for 2 minutes on speed 6, shut it off and turn the mixer rite side up and turn on again for 2 minutes, then repeat the process at least once. If your mixer continues to leak your lubricant is at end of life and it needs to be replaced along with a new motor housing gasket. KA will service it for you for about $100 dollars, you can do it yourself but it requires a full tear down of the mixer, you may have an "after warranty" service tech in your area but you will have to look for small appliance repair shops. If you do it yourself it will cost you about $20.00 bucks and a roll of paper towels as it is really messy. There are videos on utube that will show you how. The process I described above is a simple re-mix of your existing grease and in at least 60% of mixers I have repaired this is the problem with leaky oil / grease, it will last two or three years before it starts to leak again, longer if you do not use your mixer much, The grease is food safe and will not hurt you or anybody that may eat a recipe that might have a drop in it. But yes; I know it isn't really appealing to have grease dripping in your cooking. So the first thing to do is try and remix your existing grease, then try baking with it, if the drip has stopped your OK for a few years. If not you need to re-pack the grease and change the gasket.

Also the existing gasket is fiber and when the machine is put together the screws that hold the upper and lower motor housing parts together is not torqued down very hard (that is intentional on KA's part), the weight of the upper motor housing is about ten pounds and after years of having the mixer sit on top of the gasket it compresses and allows the grease liquid, (once it separates), to leak out and to get all over the place.

If you do decide to take your mixer apart you might try to just tighten up the screws that hold the two pieces together and try the re-mix process, that solution works on about 20% of all mixers I have repaired. Do this if you don't want to spend the 20 bucks on parts and grease. Let us know if this helped.

I want to know if it is possible to make noodles with the Kitchenaid stand mixer? I cannot loate my manual, and would like to know if the mixer is recommended to do this. I would also like a recipe, if...

Making noodles is damn simpler and would hardly take 5 to 10 minutes for the preparation as well. Adding cooked or raw vegetables to it, can seriously improve the taste and flavour of it as well. So it all depends on you, of how interestingly you want o cook your noodles dish. All you have to do is to heat some water depending on how much quantity of noodles you want, then you just need to add the masala pack into it and mix it well. After it starts boiling just add the -the noodle pack into this spicy hot water, and let it boil, until cooked. Do not over cook it.

I have a Hobart P660 stand mixer. It turns on for a moment then trips the breaker. Would this be a "relay" or "switch" problem?

Hello Pizzaangel,

It sounds like you are having a problem with you Hobart P660, everytime you run it trips the breaker. Sounds like the switch is shorting out. You need to replace the switch and that should solve the problem that you are having.
