My kitchenaid standmixer started to smoke, need to open

I used butter that was to cold and The mixer strained a bit to blend it with sugar. It started to smoke, I turned it of immediately. I would like to take of the cover to see, if there is anything that is visably wrong. I took the four main skrews and the one that held the back cover of the mixer.
But i am having trouble taking the top off, it seems that there is something holding it back, any ideas?

    First, if your mixer is still under warranty, don't open it, as this will void your warranty. You don't indicate if your mixer works now or not at all. Could you please clarify these points. Thanks, ricardok45

See my posts on removing the motor cover. DO NOT USE this mixer if it smoked. Something needs to burn to cause smoke. I doubt you can fix this without new parts.

KitchenAid standmixer (professional 5 pro) makes clunking noise when attachment is in hub.Grinderworm (from food grinder) slips rotation regularly as well.Without attachment everything sounds normal.


Open the gearbox up and look inside, the damage will be obvious once you clean the grease away. You aren't going to fix it from the outside so opening it is going to be part of the solution.

Beater on Kitchen Aid stand mixer doesn't touch bottom of bowl


Why would you raise the beater if you want it to reach the bottom of the bowl? You need to lower the beater. Turn the screw in until it just touches with empty bowl on high speed then turn it counter clockwise a 1/4 turn so it will just clear.

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.

either the electrical motor brushes are worn down on the motors commutator and can no longer contact the motors commutator bands,or if its a newer style mixer the triac that controls the speeds on the unit could have opened up and can no longer supply variable or even high speeds

When my 85 year old mother, who no longer does much cooking or baking, heard that my trusty KitchenAid stand mixer finally gave up the ghost after 25 years of great service, she sent me her KitchenAid...


The mixer normally has it's gearbox packed with (quite thick) grease. Over time it can heat up and become more fluid and leak out. I would guess that the amount of oil you saw would not be a problem to loose. If it were mine, I would use it and not worry. If you do feel you need to check, the grease is packed in the front of the head. You will need to remove the head, split it (you will need to remove the band and planetary) and then you can see the gears.

Mixer not creaming butter and sugar...


make sure you are using the right attachment. usually for batters you want to use the flat beater. not the dough hook. the flat beater looks like a triangle with lines through the center. and make sure you are using the correct speed on the mixer. start out at stir and then go up to no more than half speed. these mixers take a little longer to incorperate batters but they do a very good job at it. if the batter is thin enough you can try using the wisk as well. but only if it is a thin batter.
