It sounds like you may have broken the gear in the head of the mixer. I would call this a Advanced fix since you need to press the pin out of the shaft to put the new gear on. The parts are available from online parts stores, and the manuals and part lists are available from KitchenAid HERE.

SOURCE: Kitchenaid mixer. Top is loose so it bounces when

Hi MJANKOW520. I?m going to assume your KA mixer is a ?Tilt-Head? mixer. You don?t say specifically. Based on your description of the symptoms you mixer exhibits, I would say that your head locking mechanism (or a component) of it is either broken, worn or loosened due to normal wear and tear and need to be readjusted (or repaired) for it to keep your mixer head stationery. The inspection and troubleshooting of the inside of your mixer is a DITY capability, particularly if your mixer is out of warranty. Just be sure to have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home. Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case, try K45SSW, and select the file listed under Parts List (check to see it this matches your mixer model). This parts list manual provides an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the part name and numbers. Turn to page3, titled: Base and Pedestal Unit. You?ll want to focus on Illus. #9, Link & Lever Latch assembly, which locks the mixer head to the pedestal when run your mixer. Check to see if something is just loose, exceedingly worn or broken. If something has broken, you can order replacement parts and install yourself. As far as parts go, here are four potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com. Prices for the same part can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping. Once apart you can check for any other unseemly wear and tear on other mixer components. It can be messy but quite gratifying to diagnose and repair your mixer yourself. Finally, here's a link to an excellent site that details the disassembly and replacement of a mixer's grease, which might be helpful, too. http://www.foodonthefood.com/food_on_the_food/2009/04/how-to-repair-a-kitchenaid-mixer-yourself.html If you feel this is beyond your capabilities and would be too difficult to do yourself you can take your mixer to a local small appliance repair shop and have them troubleshoot and fix your mixer. KA Customer Care can provide you with the name and phone # of the closest authorized KA repair shop in your area or you can do a Online web search, but be sure to get at least three estimates before deciding to commit to one repair shop. Good luck. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA If this solution has helped you, please rate it, thanks! - hslincoln

SOURCE: My kitchenaid ksm150ps standing mixer's top seems

Hi DENISE, by the symptoms you describe it appears that it’s time to adjust your mixer’s Beater to Bowl Clearance adjustment screw, or head locking mechanism (or a component) of it is worn or loosened due to normal wear and tear and needs to be readjusted (or repaired) to keep your mixer head stationery and level.
The instructions for adjusting your beater to bowl clearance are located in your Owners Manual. If you don’t have the original manual you can easily download a PDF version of your Owners Manual from the KA website: (http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home).
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals& Guides> and enter the 6 character model number, in your case KSM150 and select the file listed for your model that appears under Owners Manuals (66) KSM150PSER1.pdf (732.33 KB) and save that file to your PC. Turn to Page 14 and you will find the instructions for adjusting the mixer head height.
But to save you some time, I have extracted the instructions below:
Beater to Bowl Clearance
Your mixer is adjusted at the factory so that the flat beater just clears the bottom of the bowl. If for any reason, the flat beater hits the bottom of the bowl or is too far away from the bowl, clearance

Tilt-Head models
• Unplug mixer.
• Lift motor head.
07f1be1.jpg
• Turn screw (A) SLIGHTLY counter clockwise (left) to raise flat beater or clockwise (right) to lower flat beater.
• Make adjustment with flat beater, so it just clears surface of bowl.
If you over adjust the screw, the bowl lock lever may not lock into place.

If the above doesn’t correct your problem, then you need to look at the Link & Lever Latch assembly. If you don’t have your parts list manual, select the file KSM150PSWH0.pdf (773.44 KB) listed under the Parts List Manual (61).
The manual provides an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the part names and numbers. Turn to page5, titled: Base and Pedestal Unit. You’ll want to focus on Illus. #11, Link & Lever Latch assembly, and the related components, which locks the mixer head to the pedestal when you run the mixer. Check to see if something is just loose, exceedingly worn or broken. If something has broken, you can order replacement parts and install yourself.
Here are five potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com. Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
Also, while your mixer is apart it would be ideal to check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the gears, etc. It can be messy but quite gratifying to diagnose and repair your KA mixer yourself.
Finally, here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer.

Between these three websites and their excellent pictures and descriptions and your Parts List manual, you should now be able to completely disassemble, repair, and reassemble your mixer.
Finally, if you feel this is beyond your capabilities and will be too difficult to do by yourself you can take your mixer to a local small appliance repair shop and have them troubleshoot and fix your mixer. KA Customer Care can provide you with the name and phone # of the closest authorized KA repair shop in your area or you can do a Online web search, but be sure to get at least three estimates before deciding to commit to one repair shop.
Good luck. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

Referring to the diagram on:

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.

Planetary head of mixer is loose - 1/8" space separated from top case,but still attached. Can it be hammered back? Does it have to be disassembled or replaced?


I have the same problem. It appears to be due to a design flaw-the planetary assembly is press fitted to the drive shaft, and will come loose, to the point where the entire assembly will drop out of the machine. This could be a serious safety issue if the beater and bowl is not in place when the machine is powered on.

Although I have been able to put the planetary assembly back into place using a good amount of effort, the assembly has fallen off repeatedly. Googling the issue has shown that this is a common issue that is particular to the Pro 600 series of mixers.

Contacting KitchenAid through their website as well as by phone has proven unsuccessful so far. I was offered a 50% discount on a new machine (mine is out of warranty). However, no one at KitchenAid to date has been able to verify that there have been any design changes have been made to address the issue. I am still awaiting a call from the factory to determine if there have been any changes to the design, or if there is a way to repair the machine that is approved by KitchenAid.

I was able to find one person who reported success by using a pin to secure the assembly-see this link http://www.fixya.com/support/t6519821-planetary_assembly_fell_off

While this may address your issue, be advised that this may void the warranty on your mixer.

Good luck!

The motor head on my kitchenaid 600 is loose.


Two. One easy one not so much. There are three screws underneath the motor on your mixer. any one of these screws coming loos will cause the moter compartment to vibrate and move about, easy fix remove motor and retightem. Really is an easy fix 15 mins. second solution; one of the motor mount screw positions have broken and the motor head is no longer fully attached to your support tower and it will have to be replace which means a full tear down and a new part ordered and installed. look at the bottom of the motor head where the power cord goes into the mixer and look for cracks in the metal. Let us know what you find. We can direct you to the proper sites for parts list and parts.

The part of my KitchenAid mixer that hold the motor shakes violently when I use it. What can we try at home to fix this problem before going to repair shop? Thank you, Gillian Lukes


Hi, W/D here.
Try this:
1. Lift the mixer head, tilting it back.
2. Locate the large silver screw under the head, where it connects to the base. It will have a slot in it, for a standard slotted screwdriver.
3. Tighten the screw up.

Best regards, --W/D--

The head of the mixer is vibrating (shaking) a lot when mixing. It does this so much that I feel as though I need to hold onto it when it's mixing. If I turn it on without the bowl and just run the...


I am sure you are locking the tilt head in the down position when your using it right? If so then check to see if the beaters are hitting the bottom of the bowl. If they are then there is an adustment screw that sets the height of the head in the down position.

Mixer head is loose beater scrapes bottom of bowl makes loud thumping noise


I assume you mean that the top half of the mixer, above the pivot pin, moves with respect to the lower half of the mixer, the stand part. There is a pin on which the top half pivots which becomes loose.

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.

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.

Kitchenaid Classic -Mixer Head wobbles or shakes back and forth


Lay the mixer on its side and look up through the base. You willnotice a small set screw. This holds the pin tight. If the set screw gets loose the pin willl begin to move out and the head will wobble. Simply tighten the set screw. I just did this to my Kitchenaid mixer 10 minutes ago and it now works fine.

KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer - Tilt is Tilting too Much & hits the bowl!


This may have a simple solution: This sounds like an issue of beater to bowl adjustment, which can come out of alignment naturally over time and with use of the machine.

If the flat beater is striking the bottom of your bowl, this may cause the locking mechanism to loosen and may cause the mixing head to "bounce" during use.

Your Use and Care Guide will cover the "beater to bowl adjustment," which you can do at home in a few minutes with a flathead screwdriver.
