Some might say that this is OK, because it can be a bear sometimes to unlock it from it's mixing position, but I am thinking that is not the case here. First do you use a glass or metal bowl. if you use a glass bowl you have a grey mounting screw on the bottom of it that can come loose, if so tighten it up and you should be right as rain, if you are using a metal bowl then it is one of two things, first the bowl has been damaged in such a way that it does not fully engage the mounting cup / plate on the base of the mixer or the mounting plate has taken the damage, look at it carefully to see where the damage is, if it is in the mounting cup on the base it's easy to fix and inexpensive, if it is on the bowl then it's a new bowl and that can be 50-60 bucks for a new bowl. let us know if this helped, if not try to be more specific. Don't be insulted but you may not be locking the bowl in place all the way either. happens to me all the time when I am baking, I don't turn it all the way in.

    Thanks so much for your answer. I use the metal bowl that came with the machine. I think you're exactly right that the bowl and/or clamping plate is damaged. I don't know which since I don't have any to compare mine to. I'll start with a replacement clamping plate and go from there. Thanks!

KITCHENAID MIXER WON'T TURN ON ?


Remove the brush caps on the sides of the motor housing and check the carbon brushes. If they are worn out replace them. They are keyed and will only fit properly one way so be observant. If that's not the problem remove the back cover and check for broken wires on the black control plate. Make sure the switch on the bottom inside of the control plate is making contact. If still faulty check the cable for continuity to the control plate, cable connects to the black wire and the white wire on lower left of control plate. After that you need to check for continuity of the field coil windings. Only thing left after that would be the phase board pcb just above black speed control plate at the back.

I have a kitchenaid K5SS. The beater keeps hitting the bowl even after adjustment screws was adjusted. What else can I do to fix problem


Check the four large screws at the back of the motor housing. They screw up thru the pedestal into the gear/motor housing. If they are loose that can allow the motor to tilt forwards. Check also the ones under the pedestal base, I have never seen those ones loose though and they would not cause your problem.

Kitchenaid mixer glass bowl broke. I need a replacement. I have a 4c mixer. Do you know where I can find one?


The glass bowl for the 4c mixer is much different than the bowls that are currently available. Your best option is going to be to find a used bowl off of eBay.

Your other option would be to replace the bowl lock plate and buy a new bowl for the mixer. I have had a few customers say this works, and I have had a couple say that replacing the bowl lock plate and bowl did not work. So you can give this a try as well.

My kitchen aid mixer bowl falls out when I'm mixing


Hello Heather,

Either the grooves on the bowl lock plate are worn out, or the grooves on the actual bowl are worn out. I would start with replacing the bowl lock plate. Here is a link to the part: KitchenAid Mixer Bowl Lock Plate 4163032

This part is really easy to replace, it is held into place with three screws, remove those screws (make sure to hang onto those you will need them to re-install the new part). then you should be able to pop the old plate out. To install the new plate like up the screw holes, and press into place, sometimes you need to lightly tap it into place with a rubber mallet as it is suppose to be a very tight fit.

Once that has been replaced your bowl should lock into place tightly. However there is always a chance that the bowl has been worn down and may need to be replaced. Here is a link to the 4.5 Quart bowl: KitchenAid 4 5 Quart Stainless Steel Bowl

Why does my sunbean mixmaster bowl don't spin?


the spinning plate under the bowl does not have any power to spin the bowl; it only aks as a "lazy susan" carousel that allows the bowl to turn from the movement of the material being wipped in the bowl.
the beaters are purposely off-center of the bowl in ordwer to create a dragging motion of the material in the bowl, thus pulling (that is, spinning) the bowl slowly. If the beaters are not off to the side of the bowl, you will not get the pulling/spinning motion. Also, if the plate under the bowl does not move very easily, then the bowl will not spin. You may have to remove the spin plate and clean the center pivot for the plate to move freely. Good Luck, Macgivor.

Looking for KitchenAide KSM50HDPBK User Manual


when you lower the bowl, there is a screw just above the mounting plate. Adjust this very very slightly. Lift bowl with beater attached with out turning on the machine to test first, after you have adjusted.
