BROKEN ''DIE HOLDER'' PART IN WARING PRIMO PASTA MAKER MACHINE
THE DIE HOLDER, A PART THAT LOOKS LIKE A BIG, WHITE PLASTIC, NUT, THAT HELPS TO HOLD IN PLACE THE PASTA DIES IN THE EXIT CONDUIT FOR THE DOUGH, IS CRACKED. IT CRACKED ALONG THE NUT THREAD THEREFORE IT DOES NOT PUT THE PRESSURE NEEDED TO HOLD THE DIE YOU CHOOSE.

What you are describing is the two side screws on the side of the mixer motor head. Yes you can buy all new parts for whats behind those screws or you can just buy new "Charcoal" thing...which are called "The Brushes" If you buy new parts off ebay or from Kitchen Aid you will have one very small concern. There are four different ways to insert the brushes back into the machine but only one way will make the machine work right or work at all. The brushes are spring loaded into the machine the screws caps keep them in and pushing them forward, the brush end rests on the commutator portion of the armature (The Motor) and when the brushes do not touch that portion of the motor the machine will not work at all until they are put in the machine correctly. You will notice on the brushes that one edge is beveled, inside the brush holder is a small metal clip/piece that has been bent up and into the brush holder space, the beveled edge must go in so that it will slide past this bent metal, if it is inserted incorrectly then the metal piece will hold the brush off of the comutator and the electric feild will not create the spark / energy needed to operate the mixer. If you want to replace all the parts associated with the brushes and brush holder you will have to do a FULL tear down of the machine in order to get at the set screw that keeps the brush holder tube in place, and to do that you will have to take the machine entirely apart. I hope this helps. If not; get back to us with more info on the problem and we will FixYa
KitchenAid doesn't sell any internal parts for the KitchenAid pasta attachments, the only thing to do is buy a replacement, if it is just the pasta roller you can purchase the KPSA, if not the others are just sold in the KPRA pack
About the machine rocks, the whole machine rocks or just the Head? If it is just the Head you may want to check to see if the set screw that holds the lock in place is still there or lose. The scress is located on the right side of the machine if you are looking straight at it in use. It is at the bottom of the head close to where the head attaches to the pedistool. If it is missing post back to this discussion and I will find the part # and place that you can purchase the part.
The second issue, the pasta attachment is not locking in properly. There is no way to ajust how the pasta attachment fits. I would try and return the attachment and exchange it for another as they are mass produced and may not have got the shaft down to the proper tolerances to fit.
I hope this helped and please post any other questions you have to this thread.
If it's gumming up, the dough is too wet and needs to be dried out more by adding flour. The right consistency dough is such that if you tear off a small piece and then tear it in half and squeeze it back together with your fingers it should stick back together but not stay stuck to your fingers. If it stays stuck to your fingers it's too wet and needs more flour. If it is crumbly, it's too dry and needs more water.
The "return spring" is broken or unhooked. If it is unhooked, you can open the unit up and reattach it. If the plastic holder for the spring is broken then you could try to fix it (I won't mention a 15watt soldering iron).
Otherwise, replace the mixer; temporarily, use a large rubberband to hold the lever in locked position.
If you happen to have a friendly toolmaker with a small metal lathe it should not be too difficult to modify KITCHEN AID accessories that fit on to the front powwer outlet. However Puck Stand Mixer accessories are occasionaly offered on the Web. Meat grinders are very common and original Puck pasta maker have also been seen. Get searchin'!
