I have a Kitchenaid Artisan stand mixer and the head is loose. When in the down, locked position, I can move it up and down by probably an inch. I've been into shops and tried to do the same with


If you have also tightened up the screw that you can see from the front in the middle where the hinge pivots when head us up then that's where your problem is. That is the head height adjustment and is to set the flat paddle to just clear the bowl when the head is down.

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.

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.

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.

Mixer head loose


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.

I have a KitchenAid Artisan stand mixer (325 watts/model KSM150), about 5 years old. Lately, when mixing dough for bread or cookies, the motor head of the machine wobbles a bit from side to side. In...


the solution to this is to tighten the screw visible through the base that intersects the pin. Turn the machine upside down and using a long flat screwdriver tighten the screw.

The motor is loose a little and needs adjusting up, because it hits the bowl when in motion.


I think from your description that the the head connecting to the base shaft needs tightening. Put the mixer on it's side UNPLUGGED. Look up inside the base and you'll see a small set screw.
With a flat blade screw driver tighten that screw and it should stop moving. If it doesn't you probably need another shaft because it's worn. If after tightening it stops rocking but it still hits the bowl there's another screw at the front, on top of the neck under the head. Turn this until it clears the bowl. Good luck!

The head will not realease


I had this happen while I was finishing my Christmas cookies. (note: unplug the mixer!) After reading some other posts, I undid the screws on the back of the mixer and removed the plastic parts to look at the inside. The nut on the bolt that connects the stand to the mixer body was really loose. I used a set of needle nose pliers to tighten the nut to the locking washer. Once I did that the button to release the body worked just fine! I put the reassembled the back parts and plugged it in to make sure it worked. There were 8 screws I had to take out before I could remove the knob assembly and get to that bolt and nut. Hope this helps!
