Question about KitchenAid KSM50PR Professional Series Stand Mixer

1 Answer

I can't get the bowl onto my KitchenAid Pro mixer

The mixer fell off the counter and one of the arms that hold the bowl in was bent inward so it is too tight and I can't put the holes on the bowl over the pin on that side. I can't bend it back out. Is it repairable and how much approximately will it cost? It is a refurb and I'm wondering if it would be cheaper to get another.

Hi. I'll give you the cheap/fast solution first. Get a 2-3 ft. section of metal pipe that will fit over the bent arm, gradually, incrementaly and slowly bend the arm out using the pipe. check it at each increment for fit and level.

Now for the more expensive/slow solution. Find the nearest Kitchenaid "approved" repair service store. You will then be looking at a replacement bowl support and the labour to repair it. Be prepared to wait for up to a month for Kitchenaid to fill the parts order. If you find that these solutions have assisted you, please rate them. Good luck! ricardok45

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

Beater hits side of bowl


There may be a few problems that are occurring here. However, in the past I have seen that the bowl has become misshapen after repeated use and normal wear and tear. Some times if the bowl isn't too bent you can re shape it by rolling it on the floor or a counter. Hope this helps!!

Thanks. Grant

My KitchenAid mixer clicks when I mix bread dough and any other thick batters. How do i fix it?


Make sure your dough hook isn't bent.... or your bowl doesn't have a dent in it.... and make sure the bowl is properly seated and secure.

My 6 quart kitchenaid mixer paddle is rubbing the bottom of the bowl with the tip of the paddle and turning my product black


Find the screw in the picture as shown and screw it counter-clock-wise which will drop the bowl level down when it is in the raised position and the mixer paddle will not rub on the bowl.

KitchenAid 300 Watts KSM90 Ultra Power sparking


Sparking is a safety concern and Kitchenaid will see it as such. I would suggest calling Kitchenaid Customer Service. They are likely to exchange the product, regardless of warranty or age, because of the potential safety concern.

Their toll-free telephone number is 1-800-541-6390.

KitchenAid K5 Mixer Bowl Rocks Back & Forth


This may be explained with the bowl assembly. Being a bowl lift mixer, please follow the following steps to make sure the bowl is being secured before mixing:

There are the bowl-holding arms on the left and right hand side of the mixer. You will place the bowl on these arms, securing it onto the pegs.

Also, take your fingertips and press down firmly at the back of the bowl where it is resting against the base. You will hear an audible click as the bowl secures down into a spring latch mechanism on the stand mixer base, allowing the mixing bowl to sit flush and secure.

Kitchenaid Pro 6 Bowl Support bent?


Hi. Your mixer should still be under warranty. Call Kitchenaid Customer Service and tell them your story. If you tell them that you tried to fix it by spreading the arms, your warranty will be deemed void. Kitchenaid is usually very good at replacing under warranty. If you found this solution helpfull, pleas rate it Good luck! ricardok45
