Question about KitchenAid KP2671 Professional 6 Series Stand Mixer

1 Answer

We just got a 6 quart kitchenaid mixer, we have used it once and the loud high pitched sound is very irritating. Is this a problem that will go away in a short time, or do we send it back for repairs? Our daughters all have 5 quart Kitchenaids that are not anywhere as noisy Wayne wayne@lybbert.net

Hi Wayne. If you want to keep the mixer, you'll have to buy some earplugs. Newer Kitchenaid mixers are all that noisy. The best thing that I can say about them, is that they've got great paint jobs. If you do keep the mixer, other revelations may occur later when the plastic transmission housing fails and possibly ruins your mixer. These units are poorly manufactured in my opinion. I know because I've been through my own Kitchenaid mixer rebuild. I recommend that you return it and consider an Electrolux DLX. My own solution was to buy a used commercial Hobart mixer and rebuild it. I am once again a happy man!

Good luck! ricardok45

Why is my kitchen aid mixers so Loud?


Could be,among other things:

Very worn brushes (although, in this case, the mixer usually stops entirely).
Worn gear(s).
Grease congealed and not lubricating correctly.

In any case, see the Service Manual at:

On low it makes a really loud grinding noise the higher you turn up the speed the slower it becomes.


It sounds like the Worm Gear is going out. The faster the motor runs,
the more damages the Center Gear is grinding away the teeth of the
Worm Gear. Things start to slow down, and eventually they will come
to a halt. It's time to replace the Worm Gear. Also make sure to use
new fresh Kitchenaid Food Grade Grease with the new replacement.

Diane,

It appears that you've got some internal transmission gear issues, and a situation similar to my wife's mixer, which we got new in Dec 2006. It could be as simple as the gears have become loose and are making different contact, hence the noise. The higher the speed, the louder, higher pitched sound you'll get. It may also be indicative of a potential gear failure (after all our increasing noise, the bevel gear broke and the mixer 'froze'). If your mixer is under warranty, contact Kitchenaid. If it's out of warranty, then take it apart and do a diagnostic exam of the gearing. Whatever you find you should be able to fix yourself. Be sure to have the Kitchenaid Part Manual (Part No. 8212278 Rev D) on hand if you attempt to disassemble yourself. It also lists all the parts so that you can determine, which parts, if any have failed. You'd think that the Kitchenaid name would warranty their mixers for a lifetime... but alas they do not. So much for quality in America today!

Kitchenaid mixer motor makes loud grinding, squeaking noise.


lgardash, Are you sure it's the motor or could it be the transmission?
It 'sounds' like you've got some transmission gear issues, and a situation similar to my wife's mixer, which we got new in Dec 2006. (Within a week of her first using it, she contacted KA Customer Care and the only 'care' they offered was an explanation that the new KA Pro Mixer gears are all metal and to expect it to be louder than previous models that used a plastic gear (to fail). Well, there's an acceptable level of noise, and an unacceptable level (you don't need to be a mechanical engineer to know when something doesn't sound right) and it seems that my wife's new mixer's operating noise level was always unacceptable. It finally 'died' this past October.) OK I've vented enough on KA... now what might be your problem(s)?
It could be as simple as thorough normal use the gears have shifted slightly in the transmission and the gear teeth are making different contact, hence the grinding/squeaky noise. The higher the speed, the louder, higher pitched sound you'll get. Alas, the noise may also be indicative of a potential gear failure (after our mixers increasing noisiness, the bevel gear broke and the mixer 'froze').
If your mixer is under warranty, contact Kitchenaid. If it's out of warranty, then take it apart and do a diagnostic exam of the gearing. Whatever you find you should be able to fix yourself. Be sure to have the Kitchenaid Part Manual (Part No. 8212278 Rev D) on hand if you attempt to disassemble yourself. It also lists all the parts so that you can determine, which parts, if any have failed. You'd think that the Kitchenaid name would warranty their mixers for a lifetime...

I hope this helps, and good luck! - Howard, Burke, VA

Mixer whine


Unfortunately, the Kenmore mixer sounds louder than freight train due to a poor planetary gear design. I had to take mine back so that the neighbors wouldn't **** me. I hooked up two identical models at the store to get the same, painfully loud, experience. I think I prefer the sound of a bandsaw to the grating noise it produced.
