Can't take apart the body on the mixer

Thank you - I followed your suggestion and I was able to remove the top and took the head off the base. I could not figure out how to open the body. I removed the screws from the body but it would not come apart.

From what i can see you need to remove the mixer head assemble which has a retainer that i havent been able to remove from mine as yet. need a special retainer pliers and you need to remove the rear stand asemble. i have not figured that out yet either. there are no screws under the logo plate. and the screws on the body only loosen the inner assembles, motor and such. this is a tough nut to crack. mine overheats kneading bread and i want to ad a fan.

    got it opened you have to lean the plastic button that tilts the stand back and up a bit. the but pops up and under it is the final screw. it is not necesary to mixer head screw or the two small ones on either side. there are five in total. two under the plugs one on each side of the stand assemble (romoved) and one under the stand button. when it is open it runs fine and does not overheat.. so it is just bad design with poor venitlation. not sure what to try next but am thinking to remove the top round cover to allow more air to exit........

Look for a pop in sort of plate on the front. It should have a logo or name on it. There will be screws under it, if your model has one.

Top part of mixer is loose. how to tighten?


I had the same problem.. not the top plate, but the whole head was wobbly. I fixed it by removing the top plate, then locating the three screws that hold the top to the base. These screws are under the motor. I had to remove the motor, but this also required taking the transmission cover off. Sounds harder than it really is. Once I tightened those three screws, the play went away.

Cant adjust flat beater so it wont hit the bowl,when trying to the head of the mixer is too loose


all tilt head mixers pivot on a pin which goes thru the head and the base. This pin is held in in place with a screw which you can access from underneath the base. Try tightening the screw and see if that tightens up the the loose head.

If the looseness is in the gear head then the five screws which hold the top and bottom halves of the gearcase together. Remove the chrome ring by gently prying it off, then drive the pin out which goes thru the planetary housing and the shaft and drop the planetary housing to access the 5 (item 19) screws.

Mixer head loose


Referring to the diagram on:

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%20W10157992.pdf

Remove the screw, item 22, to remove the trim band around the mixer. This will reveal 4 screws which hold the top cover on. Remove the screws and lift the top off. Find all the screws which hold the gearhead in place and tighten them all. If you want to make the fix a permanent one put some thread-loc compound on each screw and tighten it.

I cannot unlock the mixer to release the mixture in the bowl, suggestions?


I am guessing you have the type of mixer that the head tilts back on. I would suggest loosening the bowl by tapping the handle to undo it. I usually use the palm of my hand to tap it. I am guessing the mixture is quite thick and loosening the bowl should allow the head to lift. I am also guessing that the pin that holds the head to the body and acts as the hinge has slipped out of place. It should be equal on both sides of the mixer. If it isn't, knock it back into position then tighten up the screw under the base that holds it in position.

Took apart, pull magnets from sides, now the thing


ECARRERO2004 - Those 'magnets' you removed from the sides of your mixer are the electric motor brushes that provide power to the commutator/armature assembly so your motor runs. Did you remove the brushes to replace them or were you just inspecting them? I'd suggest removing them again and making sure the contacts are facing in the right direction to contact the commutaor. The concave contact face should be resting completely on the comutator. If you've turned it 90 degrees too much, it wont' seat properly and you'll get no 'juice' to the electric motor so it won't start. I hope this helps - Howard, Burke, VA

The mixing part of mixer not working motor is fine


Hi. Since I can't tell how much you have taken apart, I'll start from the beginning.

Remove the silver band, remove the top cover. At the top front of the mixer locate the transmission housing. If it's plastic, inspect it carefully for cracks around the screws and the body of this housing. If you find cracks, you have found the cheap plastic part that kitchenaid still installs in new mixers, and the cause of your trouble. They know that it's substandard but don't care enough to place a recall notice on this part. It may not please you to know that their replacement part is METAL like the original part should have been. "For the way it's made"! Indeed!

If you intend to repair the mixer yourself, go to kitchenaid's website, enter your model # and locate the parts list for your mixer. Download the drawings, they will assist you with your project.

Be sure to tell kitchenaid what you think of their cheap plastic part.

The lock/unlock button will not lock. It remains


Without being able to see it try this. Unplug the machine. Place it on a towel on it's side and look up inside the base neck. There's a set screw at the top. Unscrew it 3 to 4 turns and twist the head as much as you can back and forth. See if it locks. Tighten the screw.

If not the pin may be bent to one side and won't drop into the slot. Does the pin lower with the head up? If it does take a pair of pliers and while viewing it from straight on bend it gently so it lines up with the slot on the neck of the base. If that doesn't work it probably has to come apart to see if the linkage is bent or has come apart inside.

Trying to take apart the hamilton beach stand mixer to fix it


There should be a few screws on the underside that will allow you to remove the top. You may have to take the head off the base to do this.

Kitchenaid Mixer head wobbles bad


The solution provided by luannej is useful only if your mixing attachment is striking the surface of the bowl. By adjusting the screw located at the junction of the head and base, you are actually controlling how far the head is allowed to tilt forward and, thus, the height of the attachment above the bottom of the bowl. Although the attachment striking the bottom of the bowl will lead to wobble (and noise!), it isn't usually the root cause of the wobble. In fact, the wobble may be causing the bowl strikes and adjusting the head height only hides the problem.

The head of the mixer is secured to the base by a large steel pin. Any play between the head and base comes from this hinge and its resulting tolerances. To "tighten" the sloppy tolerances causing your wobble, follow these steps: 1) Lock the mixer's head down and turn the entire mixer upside down. 2) Looking deep into the hollow base, find the small slotted set screw. This screw actually presses against the pin and takes up the slop between the head and pin. Note that this screw is not the large slotted screw I mentioned earlier visible when you tilt the head back. 3)Tighten the small set screw as much as you can. Your wobble should be greatly reduced or eliminated now. 4) Lastly, you may want to readjust the large screw controlling the head's tilt to optimize the distance between attachment and bowl. Hope this helps.
