    THANKS FOR YOUR HELP

    heat did not work nor did rubber mallet but what i finally did was used brake cleaner

    it was able to disolve all the gunk that had built up and i came off like a breeze

    i even contacted a tech who services hobarts and he did not want to touch it said the best thing was to bust the thing and buy a new hook--(i dont think he was too interested in trying to find a fix



    so keep a can of brake cleaner handy

Renato20,Either the hook is worn or the beater shaft pin is worn or dough has built up around the pin/shaft and is stuck.I'm a hobart tech and if i came to your place,first i would use a rubber mallet and hit the outer edge of the hook upwards and see if i could free it.If that does'nt work i would heat tghe hook up with a torch and beat on it up,If that does'nt work i would cut the shaft and replace the shaft and hook.I bet if you beat on it (takes time) you will get it off.

    The reason we dont use a lube is that the hook is pourous and the hook becomes contaminated.

    I wish renato would have put the brake cleaner brand he used. I had the same problem and I used valucraft and brakleen brake cleaner and they didn't work for me.

    Hello I work on these mixers and here's what you have to do -- I have taken off 2 different hooks stuck on 2 different mixers. Here's what to do: (1) Get a propane torch apply heat all around the dough hook -- takes about 4 minutes, then spray PB blaster down the hook opening at the very top -- if this is clogged, then take a pick or something that you can scoop out the crud, because as you heat the hook the junk will start to come up the top -- eventually the pb blaster will start to leak through the bottom and then you know you can start to take the hook off -- Make sure you use heavy leather reinforced gloves so you can be trying to loosen the hook while you are heating up the hook -- don't hold on to the hook, just once in a while try moving it up and down side to side. This will take some time, but IT WILL COME OFF! It's only food that has seized it up, but once it starts to burn the heat forces the food to separate from the hook. Apply the heat as evenly as possible and I promise you it will come off

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.

Kitchenaid mixer leaking oil


Get a copy of the Repair Part List for your model at Kitchenaid.com
Grease inside the Planetary Assembly (the shaft is tight fit to the Planetary
plate at the factory and is not designed to be taken apart, so do not use
any hard object such as a screwdriver to separate them) over times can
turn to liquid and leak down the bowl. Removing the Planetary assembly
and adding Kitchenaid Food Grade Grease is not a task for a novice.
To properly remove the Planetary Assembly, you must work from inside
the Transmission Housing: Remove in this order: Retaining Clip(25), Bevel Gear(21),
Retaining Pin(18), Worm Follower Gear(19). Use a soft mallet to tap out the Shaft
of the Planetary Assembly(15). Re-assemble it in the reverse order.
Note: The Bevel Gear is extremely tightly fit on the shaft, and a pin punch
must be used to remove from the shaft.

Hello. I just purchased my Kitchen Aid Professional 550 HD last Sunday from Costco. I've used it four times and tonight we noticed that the two thin rings (one black) just above the beater shaft are out...


What I think you are describing is the snap ring (black) which you cannot move and the washer controlling the up thrust of the mixer. The black snap ring is usually a tight fit into the groove on the shaft and shouldn't move. The washer right above it is required to be there enabling the mixer to used with a spiral dough hook. The spiral dough hooks cause upwards pressure on the gear train that does not exist using a c-type dough hook. I think you mixer is fine............leave it alone, that's the way it was designed.

The flat mixing paddle is stuck in the mixer and can't be removed from the socket. It turns but when I pull it would not come out.


Here's what really happens. The hook has a shaft screwed into it with bayonet fittings that lock into the mixer. The shaft has a locknut where it screws into the hook. If the locknut becomes loose then the shaft can screw in too far making removing from the mixer almost impossible. Try to get a slim wrench onto the locknut and loosen it off enough to allow the hook to be unscrewed. After the hook comes off, move the locknut down the shaft until the whole assembly can be removed from the mixer. Re-attach the shaft to the hook making sure that the exposed portion of the shaft is long enough to allow for easy removal from the mixer. Tighten the locknut and you will never have the problem again.

The dough hook is stuck in the beater shaft of kitchenaid mixer


It sounds like it got overloaded when you last mixed dough. It will only come off the way it went on. If it has been bent on, it may need a bit of gentle encouragement.

Flat blade stuck on KA stand mixer


Using one of the bowls, filled it with hot water up to the shaft and where the paddle is hooked up. Using a cotton cloth, wrap it around the paddle and shaft, let it soak for 30 to 40 min. After 30 min, twist the paddle back and forth to loosen up whatever got stuck inside the shaft and paddle. Put a little of mineral oil so that the paddle will be easily remove and it will just slide out from the shaft.
