SOURCE: bread dough

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.

SOURCE: 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.

Hi. Stop using your mixer. If your mixer is still covered by warranty, call Kitchenaid Customer Service, they are very good with warranty repairs.

If your mixer is out of warranty, remove the silver band that surrounds the top of mixer. Remove the top cover. At the front of the mixer, locate the transmission housing which is now exposed. Examine this housing carefully for cracks. If you find cracks anywhere in this housing, you have found the under-engineered plastic transmission housing. Kitchenaid's replacement housing is made of metal. Your plastic housing has no business being in a mixer that is marketed as being able to mix bread dough. It cannot!

If you're confident that you can make the repairs yourself, go to the Kitchenaid website and download the parts drawings. Remove the Trans. housing, remove the worm gear shaft assembly which is driven by the motor.. Remove and save as much grease as necessary to thoroughly inspect the worm gear. Inspect the worm shaft bearings. Look for cracks, or missing pieces on the bearings. Look for crunched cogs on all gears. Be prepared to wait at least a month for your parts to arrive after you order them. The replacement grease should be Shell Darina 2, or Chevron FM ALC EP 2.

If you're not confident about repairing this yourself, call Kitchenaid and determine the nearest "approved" repair shop.

You may be able to pressure Kitchenaid to pay for the damaged parts in your mixer. They are still installing these plastic Trans. housing on new mixers. Insist on a metal cover when replacing. Apparently, Kitchenaid feels no shame in their manufacturing process, and will not issue a recall notice for these housings. They are substandard at best.

SOURCE: Dough hook stuck in machine

Hi. Is it possible that some of the dough or flour you are mixing has made it's way into the attachment point with each batch, and therefore gumming it up progressivley ? Carefully lay the mixer on one side, being carefull not to lay it on the side mixer controls. Use a rolled up towel to support the head, this will make it easeir to see the attachment point. If there's a buildup of flour, wet it with warm water and a little liquid soap, until it softens, remove the attachment and clean the areas of contact. Apply a bit food oil to the hook before using next time.

Re: your second mixer The head locking pin may also have flour in it. This would inhibit the movement of the locking mechanism along it's guides. You may have to do some disassembly to get it cleaned out. After cleaning put a drop of regular oil on the moving parts. Be sure to clean the recess that the pin fits into as well.

If that's not your problem, then the pin may be worn enough to not fully engage.

If I have assisted you, please rate my solution. Good luck! ricardok45

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.

Hook stuck in kenwood major; impossible to get it out


Force it out carefully. One person wrap tea towel over hook and turn forcefully, anticlockwise. Secnd person use a long handle screwdriver to hold the Kenwood still - wedge between the housing where the hook inserts. Hold Kenwood still whilst twisting the hook. When it comes apart, clean 'hole' and hook shaft thoroughly with WD40 / oil. Might need new hook if too damaged. Ours is ok seemingly.

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.

Which kenwood mixer to buy?


Hi. Congratulations for researching mixers. I wish I had before I bought my Kitchenaid HD Pro. All mixer manufacturers over-rate their products. Goto www.consumeraffairs.com and do a search for each mixer you are considering. Most mixer failures are caused by mixing heavy cookie or bread doughs. Although manufacturers claim that their mixers can easily handle these doughs...They cannot! My Kitchenaid self-destructed after 30 batches of bread dough. "For the way it's made"! Indeed! I solved my problem by buying a Hobart N50 mixer. It's a 5qt. and handles anything I throw into the bowl. I bought mine used, and refurbished it myself. New these units cost $2,035.00 USD.
