Ksm95 won't power on


Most have internal relays that can only be replaced by opening the unit. Unless you are experienced technician, I suggest a local repair or fix shop. Kitchen Aid will also repair the unit if you ship it back to their factory with return postage. If the warranty is out, the cost for repair, shipping, could exceed the cost of replacement. Good luck.

My machine simply won't turn on .


Obtain a copy of the Repair Part List for your model from Kitchenaid.com.

http://www.kitchenaidparts.be/centers/servicemanual/mixer.pdf
Remove both Brush Holder Caps (34), one on each side of the
Gearcase Motor Housing (1). The Carbon Brushes (29) are keyed
and designed to go into the Housing but only one way. Both must
make contact with the Motor Coils in order for the Motor to turn.
If they are improperly inserted or too worn out (replacement is
required) then your mixer will not run.

The chrome ring on the motor head of my 4 1/2 quart Kitchen Aid stand mixer has come off. It is the ring just above the beater shaft.We have put it back on, but it keeps slipping off. Is there a...


Hi BRET, that chrome ring is called the ‘Planetary Drip Ring’ and is a compression/friction fitted piece that should stay on during normal mixer use. Its purpose is to prevent the mixer’s transmission lubrication grease/oil from dripping into your mixing bowl from the planetary drive, hence its catchy name. It should be on tightly enough that to remove it you need to gently tap the edge of the ring with a straight screwdriver at several points on the ring. Obviously something is awry. Before going to the point of replacing it, though, you might try these three remedies first.
1) The drip ring may only fit tightly on your mixer in one orientation and you just need to ‘discover’ that correct orientation. Mark the outside of the ring with a small piece of tape so you can keep track as you rotate the ring around the mixer head flange. As you attempt to seat the drip ring, if it will not stay on, then rotate the drip ring clockwise, just a bit, and repeat the process. Ideally you should find one position where the drip ring will fit securely and stay in place. Give the drip ring one final squeeze for good measure. Keep an eye on the drip ring the first few times you use the mixer to make sure it is not working loose again. If that doesn’t remedy the problem, then…
2) You might try a little friendly persuasion by gently tapping the bottom of the drip ring with a few taps of a soft faced mallet or hammer (use a piece of wood between the hammer face and the ring to protect the ring) around the ring to see it that seats it any better, and...
3) If it still comes off, then the ring opening has been expanded to the point that it won’t ‘grip’ the mixer head flange. You can try to ‘crimp’ it at a few points around the ring with a pair of pliers so that it may grip better.
Finally, if none of these remedies work, you should order a replacement drip ring for which you’ll need the Parts List manual. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case use K45SSW, and select the file listed under Parts List (1), K45SSWH0.pdf (341.41 KB). Check to make sure it matches your mixer.
Turn to pages 4 & 5, titled “Case, Gearing and Planetary Unit”, which provides an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the parts. Locate Illus. Nos. 26, Planetary Drip Ring, which is the part you want to order.
Here are five potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com (for grease). Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do some comparison shopping.
Also, while your mixer is apart it would be ideal to check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the gears, etc. It can be messy but quite gratifying to diagnose and repair your KA mixer yourself.
Here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer.
Between these three websites and their excellent pictures and descriptions and your Parts List manual, you should now be able to completely disassemble and reassemble your mixer.

The metal ring (encasing the mixing unit housing) has popped off the unit. In an attempt to replace it, it will not stay in place. How can I make it so it stays in place?


Hi ILLOWA, Happy Newy Year! I believe the metal ring you are referring to is your mixer’s “Planetary Drip Ring”. The drip ring is a compression/friction fitted piece that should stay on during normal use. It should be on tightly enough that to remove it by gently tapping the edge of the ring with a straight screwdriver at several places around the ring.
If the drip ring is falling on its own, than you might try the reverse on trying to remove the ring and tap the bottom of the drip ring gently with a few taps of a soft faced mallet or hammer (use a piece of wood between the hammer face and the ring to protect the ring) around the ring to see it that seats it any better.
The ring may only fit tightly on the mixer in one orientation. Mark the outside of the ring with a small piece of tape so you can keep track of the orientations you have tried. As you attempt to seat the drip ring, if it will not stay on, then rotate the drip ring clockwise, just a bit, and repeat the process.

Planetary Drip Ring will not stay on K5SS Mixer


Hi, EAGLESON: You are correct, the Planetary Drip Ring is a friction fitted piece that should stay on during normal use. It should be on tightly enough that to remove it by gently tapping the edge of the ring with a straight screwdriver at several places around the ring. If the drip ring is falling on it’s own, than you might try tapping the bottom of the drip ring upwards with a few hammer taps around the ring to see it that seats it any better (place a piece of wood between the hammer face and the ring to protect the ring).
If it still comes off, then the ring opening has been expanded to the point that it won’t ‘grip’ the mixer head where it’s attached. You can either attempt to ‘crimp’ it with a pair of pliers at a few points around the ring so that it can grip the flange better, or you may want to order a replacement drip ring, entirely. However, do not try to ‘glue’ it on.
You will want to have the Repair Parts manual on hand to identify the correct part number for your Drip Ring. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case use KSM50P (Your K5SS mixer falls within this manual), and select the first file KSM50P.pdf (438.31 KB) listed under Parts List (4) and then check to verify this matches your mixer model.
Turn to pages 4 & 5, titled “Case, Gearing and Planetary Unit”, which provides and exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the parts. Locate Illus. Nos. 42, Planetary Drip Ring, (Part # 4162074), which is the part you want to order.
Here are five potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com. Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
Also, while your mixer is apart it would be ideal to check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the gears, etc. It can be messy but quite gratifying to diagnose and repair your KA mixer yourself.
Finally, here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer. The mixers displayed in the links are different KA models, but the principles are the same.
Between these three websites and their excellent pictures and descriptions and your Parts List manual, you should now be able to completely disassemble, repair, and reassemble your mixer.
Finally, if you feel this is beyond your capabilities and will be too difficult to do by yourself you can take your mixer to a local small appliance repair shop and have them troubleshoot and fix your mixer. KA Customer Care can provide you with the name and phone # of the closest authorized KA repair shop in your area or you can do a Online web search, but be sure to get at least three estimates before deciding to commit to one repair shop.

Silver metal ring falls off how do i get it to stay on


Hi JNJ2SOME. I believe the silver metal ring you are referring to is your mixers “Planetary Drip Ring”. Is it about 5” in diameter? The drip ring is a friction fitted piece that should stay on during normal use. It should be on tightly enough that to remove it by gently tapping the edge of the ring with a straight screwdriver at several places around the ring.
If the drip ring is falling on it’s own, than you might try the reverse on trying to remove the ring and tap the bottom of the drip ring gently with a few taps of a hammer (use a piece of wood between the hammer face and the ring to protect the ring) around the ring to see it that seats it any better. If it still comes off, then the ring opening has been expanded to the point that it won’t ‘grip’ the mixer head where it’s attached. You can either attempt to ‘crimp’ it with a pair of pliers at a few points around the ring so that it may grip better, or you may want to order a replacement drip ring for your mixer.
The inspection and troubleshooting of the inside of your mixer is a DITY capability, particularly if your mixer is out of warranty, which it is. Just be sure to have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.

KichenAid K5SS Speed lever does not stay in ''off'' position. When the lever is placed in the off position it moves to speed 1 immediately.


Hi Burt. Go to mendingshed.com, look up kitchenaid mixer parts. Near the top of the page, locate the free kitchenaid service manual. Download this valuable manual, it will help you to diagnose and repair your mixer. Mending Shed also sells KA parts. If you order parts directly from kitchenaid be prepared to wait for at least a month for the parts to arrive.
