Question about KitchenAid K45SS Classic Stand Mixer

1 Answer

No rotating movement from the mixer, only fast clicking sound after beater was lodged.

The metal cap that is removed for the grinder & pasta attachment was not secured with the pin and fell into the bowl while while mixing cookie dough. Unfortunately this lodged the beater bar, everything "locked up". No rotating movement only a fast higher pitched clicking type sound. Definite damage done...is this repair worthy? The Heavy Duty mixer series is only 5 years old.

This is an excellent mixer and worthy of a professional or DIY repair.. You stripped a gear inside the mixer that is there just for that reason. Now the machine requires a tear down and replacement part. if you can post the model number we can advise on how to do it. If it is the new pro series model they cost between 4 and 5 hundred new to buy, the repair is going to cost between 80 and 100 dollars by a professional or about 30 dollars by you.

SOURCE: Motor runs but the beater does not move

you most likely stripped the plastic gear (Worm gear???).  This gear is designed to fail to prevent the motor from burning out under EXTREME loads (i.e. when a metal piece falls into the bowl). The plastic gear is much cheaper than a new motor.  Look around on this site to see how to get at/repair the gear.  I've found many parts on eBay.com and also PartSelect.com.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Top wobbles and beaters scrape bottom of mixing bowl when in use

Turn the mixer over and look up where the pin goes through the two pieces. There is a screw there which secures the pin. Tap the pin into position and tighten the screw.

Is the mixing gear supposed to turn when the pasta attachment is on? (KV25MCXER)


Yes it will turn, just remove the beater. It is a solid drive and cannot disengage from the motor unless you overload it and wreck the fuse gear.

The mixer won't work the pasta attachment, keeps rotating the mixer motor.


It sounds like it could be a possible stripped gear. You could have a bad attachment drive gear or bevel pinon gear.
Best thing to do would be to take the mixer apart, and inspect those gears. Here is a link to the service manual which will aid you in taking apart your 4.5 quart mixer: http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/mendingshed/kitchenaidservicemanual.pdf
Here is a link to the attachment drive gear: http://www.mendingshed.com/attachmentgear.html

My KitchenAid Professional 6 mixer has been used about 2 years. Lately it leaves a black trail in my icing/batter/whatever from the finish being worn off the metal beater--the triangular one. The bowl has...


It sounds like you have two problems. First, the black marks are usually because of a reaction between the beater and certain chemicals used in dishwashers. Try washing the beater by hand and scrubbing it throughly to remove any residue. If this works, don't use the dishwasher again. You could also buy a plastic coated beater.

It also sounds like the bowl height needs adjusting. There is a screw just under the head for this.

Remove the pin from the mix shaft.
Pull down on the mixer head. Inspect the gears.
If nothing wrong here, disassemble completely and inspect drive gears. Something is broke and needs replaced. You need to find it first, then take that broken part to the dealer to get a new one. Good luck

Kitchen Aid switching from mixer mode to grinder


There is no switch. When you have the accesory in the front, the beater section still moves. I suggest that you remove the beater so that there is less possibility for someone to get hurt.

your not supposed to remove the cap. under that cap is just a gear assembly that powers the beater assembly. some of these attachments are only compatable with certain units. some of the older units arn't compatable with the newer attachments.
