Kitchen aid artisan mixer is loose and shaking


This could be the pivot rod between the head and the column being loose and out of place. Or it could be the hook activated by the lock lever not engaging properly. See the following Service Manual:

Top part of mixer is loose. how to tighten?


I had the same problem.. not the top plate, but the whole head was wobbly. I fixed it by removing the top plate, then locating the three screws that hold the top to the base. These screws are under the motor. I had to remove the motor, but this also required taking the transmission cover off. Sounds harder than it really is. Once I tightened those three screws, the play went away.

The part of my KitchenAid mixer that hold the motor shakes violently when I use it. What can we try at home to fix this problem before going to repair shop? Thank you, Gillian Lukes


Hi, W/D here.
Try this:
1. Lift the mixer head, tilting it back.
2. Locate the large silver screw under the head, where it connects to the base. It will have a slot in it, for a standard slotted screwdriver.
3. Tighten the screw up.

Best regards, --W/D--

The head of the mixer is vibrating (shaking) a lot when mixing. It does this so much that I feel as though I need to hold onto it when it's mixing. If I turn it on without the bowl and just run the...


I am sure you are locking the tilt head in the down position when your using it right? If so then check to see if the beaters are hitting the bottom of the bowl. If they are then there is an adustment screw that sets the height of the head in the down position.

Bearings in the lifting head are worn out. the top won't lock down & the paddles are rubbing


I think what has happened is the head's position has dropped over time. If you left the head up there is an adjustment screw on the hinge visible from the front. This altered the height of the head when you lower it back down. Adjust it so the paddles no longer hit the bowl. Hopefully this will also fix the problem with your head locking into position as well.

Motor head will not tilt back


Push down slightly on the head and then the button will go in further and the top will release. ((this answer after I just bought it home and was about to take it back to the store!!))

I have a kitchen aid stand mixer and the head jiggles when it is on and the entire unit "hops" and shakes at high speed. what's going on and how do i fix it?


This sounds like an issue of beater to bowl adjustment, which can come out of alignment naturally over time and with use of the machine.

If the flat beater is striking the bottom of your bowl, this may cause the locking mechanism to loosen and may cause the mixing head to "bounce" during use.

Your Use and Care Guide will cover the "beater to bowl adjustment," which you can do at home in a few minutes with a flathead screwdriver.

Taking the top off my kitchenaid mixer


Remove the back housing by removing one screw and liftingand pulling rearward.
Remove two screws holding the metalic edge trim. This uncovers the seam. Screws are on the back.
Remove four visible screws from the bottom of the head around and near the pillar.
Now gently using a screw driver, push the metallic ring on the mixing head down and off.
This uncovers five more screws about the mixing head. Remove them.
Using a very small screw driver or punch, puch the pin out of the mixing head shaft.
Remove the mixing head housing.
Lift up on the motor housing to remove it.
The motor/gear housing is the top protion of the mixer. Its loaded with grease so do this over a covered countertop or some place easy to clean. The grease won't run, but it can fall out in gobs.
Make sure all sealing surfaces are clean, especially the gasket around the gears. This will insure a good seal. No gear grease in your famous cookies!
Reinstall in reverse.

Kitchenaid Classic -Mixer Head wobbles or shakes back and forth


Lay the mixer on its side and look up through the base. You willnotice a small set screw. This holds the pin tight. If the set screw gets loose the pin willl begin to move out and the head will wobble. Simply tighten the set screw. I just did this to my Kitchenaid mixer 10 minutes ago and it now works fine.
