Motor head on Kitchen Aid KSM150PSWW is loose when in operation.


Are you engaging the head lock during operation? if not that is why it is loose. If you are it is not uncommon for the head to move around a little under heavy loads, when I make bread the head is always trying to come up so I have to use the head lock switch whenever I use the mixer on bread. It is the only time I lock it down.

Hinge pin came out from head of mixer and can't put it back..will only go through part way.


did you turn your mixer over and unscrew the set screw on the hinge shaft before trying to put back in? there is a small set screw that holds the hinge pin in place during normal operation. the screw sometimes comes loose and the shaft will vibrate out of it's normal operating position but when you try to push it back in the screw now stops the hinge shaft from going in, You have to turn the mixer upside down and look into the base cavity and you will see the set screw in the middle. Loosen first, return hinge shaft to normal operating position and the re tighten the setscrews, you can be firm with this screw, let us know if this helped

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.

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.

Mixer head loose


Turn the mixer upside down and you'll see the screws up inside that hold the head to the base. You'll need a long screw driver.

My kitchenaid mixer has a large amount of vibration when used on speed 4. So much vibration that the head pin was vibrating out of place.


If you tip the entire unit on it's side you'll find a screw holding the pin described above in place. Take a flat head screwdriver and tighten that baby up. You'll be all set.

Taking the top off my kitchenaid mixer


Remove the back housing by removing one screw and liftingand pulling rearward.
Remove two screws holding the metalic edge trim. This uncovers the seam. Screws are on the back.
Remove four visible screws from the bottom of the head around and near the pillar.
Now gently using a screw driver, push the metallic ring on the mixing head down and off.
This uncovers five more screws about the mixing head. Remove them.
Using a very small screw driver or punch, puch the pin out of the mixing head shaft.
Remove the mixing head housing.
Lift up on the motor housing to remove it.
The motor/gear housing is the top protion of the mixer. Its loaded with grease so do this over a covered countertop or some place easy to clean. The grease won't run, but it can fall out in gobs.
Make sure all sealing surfaces are clean, especially the gasket around the gears. This will insure a good seal. No gear grease in your famous cookies!
Reinstall in reverse.

Head of mixer droops


I just fixed mine this moring!!
Solution:
1- Lift head. In the lifted position you will see the head of an adjusting screw. Turn it to the left say a half turn.
2- Lower head and see if it is still too low. If so, do it again.

I had to turn mine like two plus full turns.
I beleive it goes into a nylon insert so that the threads are cut as the screw is put in the first time. If the screw is too loose, it may be possible that over time the head could slowly drop because of vibration and the screw slowly moving inward again. If that happens, a new nylon insert may be needed (but that is a different story).

There is another screw that may be loose of the head moves too much right and left. I also had that issue. This screw will be seen if you lay the machine on its side and look up the shaft (pedestal) of the base (large empty area the head attaches to). You will see a small screw head (first item up the open part). That set screw holds the unit in position on the hinge pin to stop movement from right and left.

Hope this helps.

Tilting too much


i had this same problem. so i wented to the kitchenaid website and looked up the user manuel. it said to adjust the screw that is in the middle of the hinge part between the head and the stand. you can only see it if the head is lifted. you have to turn it counter clockwise to raise the head and clockwise to lower it until the flat mixing head just clears the bottom of the bowl. i hope this helps and it is clear enough to understand
