I know it's expensive but you will have to replace the parts.

Your cheapest bet is to check Ebay for used parts.

You may be able to find used parts at an appliance repair shop also.

You could also put an ad on Craigslist to see if anyone in your area wants to get rid of parts

One of my blades is stuck and I can't engage the release


Make sure your Beater can slip in and out of the Beater Shaft
easily. Do not force the beater onto the Shaft if the shaft is bent.
If it cannot be removed easily by hand, use a soft rubber mallet
(not a steel hammer) to slightly tap the beater so it can be moved
up and down the shaft or from side to side. Then you can easily
turn the beater left and remove it from the shaft.

From Kitchenaid Manual:
To Attach Flat Beater, Wire Whip, or Dough Hook
1. Turn speed control to OFF.
2. Unplug stand mixer or disconnect power.
3. Tilt motor head back.
4. Slip beater onto beater shaft and press upward
as far as possible.
5. Turn beater to right, hooking beater over pin on shaft.
6. Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.

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.

I recently acquired a KitchenAid/Hobart Model 4C stand mixer for free. It seems to work okay but I?m in need of a flat beater, dough hook and wire whip as it came with only the juicer attachment. Do you...


A number of attachments were available for the 4C, such as a juicer, a meat grinder, etc., all of which ran off the PTO on the front of the housing.  The only beater, however, was the wire one.  No dough hook was ever made.  I have been told that the motor didn't have the necessary power to run a dough hook.

Help with replacement parts


Your beater to bowl adjustment may have come out of alignment, which can happen over time with normal use of the machine. This simply means that the flat beater may be contacting the bottom of the bowl.

In your mixer's Use and Care Guide, the beater to bowl adjustment is covered and will provide easy instructions to follow about how to adjust your beater back into proper position.

There are burnished aluminum beaters available. That is to say, they do not have the food-safe nylon coating on the outside of them. Burnished aluminum beaters may not be used in the dishwasher, require hand-washing, no soaking, and immediate towel drying. Failure to follow exact washing instruction with burnished aluminum beaters may result in tarnishing of the beaters.

Beater jams


You are going to DESTROY YOUR MIXER by kneading dough with the flat beater. Read the directions. They spell it out in big letters. Only use the dough hook for dough; only use speed 2.
If the mixer generated enough torque to knead dough with the flat beater (it doesn't), it would tear up and overwork the dough. As it is, you're lucky you didn't strip a gear.
