Question about KitchenAid K45SS Classic Stand Mixer

1 Answer

Question I asked you how to adjust the depth of the dough hook on my mixer. Your response was right and wrong. But it was my fault. I checked and the model number is K5SS, not the one that was on the screen at the time I asked the question. When I asked the question I couldn't find the instruction book, but since then I have and have seen that there is no problem with the depth. Thank you for your response. Steven Mandel

Your question can be resolved as follows, but first go to this link for a copy of the user manual:
http://forum.kitchenaid.com/forums/pdfs/u_c_classic4.5_5qtmodels.pdf

On page 11 of the manual, note there is a screw that enables changing depths of mixer attachments thus preventing scrapes on bowl. These adjustments must be done rather slightly. Do not over-adjust. Click a degree or so at a time. Trust this resolves and happy cooking (or baking) as the case may be.

How do i insert dough hooks into stand mixer professional 600??? There are no holes.


Your Flat Beater, Wire Whip and Dough Hook attachement ends should
look the same. They are inserted onto the beater shaft and held in place
by a single pin. The reason you cannot attach the dough hook to the
beater shaft because it is the wrong hook for your particular model.

Dough hook stuck immediately after use


I just got my dough hook unstuck! The problem was the bolt at the top of the dough hook. This bolt is used to adjust the height of the dough hook. This bolt came loose while mixing and went up towards the mixer. The force of the spinning actually tightened this bolt against the mixer so when I tried to release the dough hook by lifting and turning, it wouldn't lift. The bolt was in the way! The solution is to loosen this bolt. You'll need a thin wrench that's about 15 mm. You can test loosening this bolt on the other attachments since they loosen in the same manner. You'll have to bend the white shield down slightly to get the wrench in there. It's a tight squeeze even with a thin wrench. Hold on to the lower end of the dough hook and turn the wrench counterclockwise when looking down at it. Once you loosen the bolt, you'll be able to turn the lower portion of the dough hook to lower it. Then you can lower the bolt further. Once you have them low enough, you can remove the dough hook like normal - lift and turn. Sure beats boxing it up, shipping it for repair and paying for shipping both ways!

My varimixer R30 hook doesn´t seem to reach out far enuff to mix satisfactorily. Can the hook change shape just like that ? Or is the hook for some other kettle ?


This is a dough hook and would typically only be used to knead dough. Therefore, the extra clearance makes sense for kneading dough. For other mixer jobs, use other attachments.

Dry clumps in pizza dough


Hi. You should consider a few things. They type of hook you use, can greatly affect your end result. If you're making a yeasted dough with a high protein percentage 12-13%, you should be using an "ED" hook, this is a spiral hook that has a sharp turn at the tip. You can find them on eBay for a competitive price. I believe that Hobart also sells them, but for a higher price. They are very good for mixing pizza type doughs, they also do an excellent job kneading the dough.

Have you checked the flour for lumps before it goes into the mixer? Have you tried sifting the flour?
Are you adding all the liquid and flour at once? If so try adding flour in stages to all the liquid. If you find that this solution helps you, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45
