Question about Food Mixers

1 Answer

Kitchen aid artisan model # KSM150PSBU

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.

SOURCE: when mixin bread dow the arm of the mixer moves loose

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.

SOURCE: Kitchenaid Mixer head wobbles bad

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:

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%20W10157992.pdf

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.

SOURCE: I have a KitchenAid Artisan stand mixer (325

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.

Kitchen aid mixer repair locationsi


Leaking oil is caused by the grease in the gear box separating. This often happens when the mixer is not used much and the grease is not kept mixed by the moving gears. The solution is two-fold. First run the machine more frequently. Second is to open the head and replace the old grease with an approved food-grade grease (6 oz. is the right amount). KitchenAid grease can be found online and at Ebay. The Service Manual can be found at:

http://www.kitchenaidparts.eu/documents/pdf/service-manual/classic-svc-manual-new-email-version.pdf

While the Artisan series is not specifically referenced, the procedures are the same.

You can also take the mixer and manual to a competent repair person.

Kitchen aid stand mixer bought in US, moving to Europe, 220v 50hz


I can not respond to the warranty issues. My kitchen aid mixer is past warranty as well. I live in a country that uses 220V and my kitchen aid mixer is 110V. I have been using my kitchen aid mixer for almost 4 years with no problems at all.

The converter boxes are supposed to blow the fuse on the converter before it reaches your appliance and cause any problems.

If you purchase a 220V kitchen aid (although it would cost more money) it would probably have more power because of the higher voltage.

Hope this helps!
