Question about Food Mixers
I just bought this mixer used, SUPPOSEDLY, from a senior citizen on ebay who said she only used it 6 times and it works perfectly. Anyway, I got it and it was making a TERRIBLE noise! I saw a screw in the back top that was loose so I tightened it! The sound wasn't as bad after. Then I saw the side black screw thing that you use a flat head to get into (a spring of sorts with chalk? on the end?) was loose and so I went to tighten that. Now, the mixer won't work AT ALL! It already was NOT how she described it and I'm angry and frustrated! The bowl is all dented and needs to be replaced and she sent a bowl from a different brand mixer and said it works well and it does not work at all with the stand mixer! Either way, my concern is that the mixer won't even try to turn on any longer. I've never owned a Kitchenaid stand mixer before and I really wanted one terribly and so I'm CLUELESS on what might be the issue and really can't afford to take it somewhere to get it fixed. Help? Thank you so much! :) I appreciate any help you can give me! Jennifer
You have put the "chalk thing" back in incorrectly, it only fits one way, use a torch and look in the hole and line the missing corner on the "chalk thing" up with the blocker.

Lay the mixer on a towel and look up inside the base to the top of the neck. There's set screw up there. Tighten. If that doesn't work your shaft may be too worn and needs to be replaced.

The solution provided by luannej is useful only if your mixing attachment is striking the surface of the bowl. By adjusting the screw located at the junction of the head and base, you are actually controlling how far the head is allowed to tilt forward and, thus, the height of the attachment above the bottom of the bowl. Although the attachment striking the bottom of the bowl will lead to wobble (and noise!), it isn't usually the root cause of the wobble. In fact, the wobble may be causing the bowl strikes and adjusting the head height only hides the problem.
The head of the mixer is secured to the base by a large steel pin. Any play between the head and base comes from this hinge and its resulting tolerances. To "tighten" the sloppy tolerances causing your wobble, follow these steps: 1) Lock the mixer's head down and turn the entire mixer upside down. 2) Looking deep into the hollow base, find the small slotted set screw. This screw actually presses against the pin and takes up the slop between the head and pin. Note that this screw is not the large slotted screw I mentioned earlier visible when you tilt the head back. 3)Tighten the small set screw as much as you can. Your wobble should be greatly reduced or eliminated now. 4) Lastly, you may want to readjust the large screw controlling the head's tilt to optimize the distance between attachment and bowl. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 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.

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.
