Yes it will turn, just remove the beater. It is a solid drive and cannot disengage from the motor unless you overload it and wreck the fuse gear.

SOURCE: Can the Kitchen aid accessories fit the Wolfgang puck stand mixer

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'!

SOURCE: Kitchen aid 300 watt counter mixer model ksm90

Here is a link to the instruction manual:

http://www.kitchenaid.com/assets/pdfs/product/ZUSECARE/KSM150PSOB_Use%20and%20Care.pdf

Quick summary:

Tilt back the head of your mixer. Look at the joint between the head/body of the mixer. A flat-head (standard) screw will now be visible. Turn this screw counter-clockwise to raise the attachments, clockwise to lower them. Don't turn the screw too much, it is pretty sensitive.

SOURCE: the pasta/meat grinder attachment stops turning

Its a 325 watt mixer. If you grind or mix dough often you may consider getting something stronger or turn it off every ten minutes or so and let it cool down. We burned a 325 and got the 575 watt "600" series and no problems ever since. I know these things are expensive. The 325 is more mixer than grinder. The attachements fit ANY size mixer but some are not recommended for use in all mixers.
If its quiting see my posts on "doesn't run at sitr" and "Removing the motor cover" To get inside and clean those contacts.

SOURCE: KitchenAid KSM5PSGR Stand Mixer - attachments not turning

Hi Gail. Kitchenaid no longer has a Parts List for your model. This means that they consider it obsolete. Do an Internet search for parts. You may get lucky. Good luck!

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.

The beaters are getting stuck .


If it does this while mixing dough, for example, your mixture or portions may be too much for the mixer to handle.

If it does this with no materials in the mixing bowl- then it sounds like one or both beaters may be out of alignment; a damaged or worn center shaft pin; a worn center pinion gear, a damaged or worn worm gear...etc.

My Kitchenaid mdl: KSM 155gbca is making a loud bumping noise with or without an attachment.


It is more than likely in the planetary or the fuse gear inside the gear box. Try it once you have the planetary off before you go looking inside the gear box. Easiest is planetary problem but far far more likely is the fuse gear.

Kitchenaid Artisan Stand Mixer has stuck hub bevel gear (KSM150PS)


The bevel gear sits above the worm-follower gear. I think you mean the drive attachment gear.

I think I have the same, or similar problem. I ground a piece of meat that stopped it from working. The drive-attachment-gear turns if I push it in, but then it pops out. I am still trying to figure out what part is causing the issue - the drive attachment gear, or maybe even the worm follower gear.

The mixer won't work the pasta attachment, keeps rotating the mixer motor.


It sounds like it could be a possible stripped gear. You could have a bad attachment drive gear or bevel pinon gear.
Best thing to do would be to take the mixer apart, and inspect those gears. Here is a link to the service manual which will aid you in taking apart your 4.5 quart mixer: http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/mendingshed/kitchenaidservicemanual.pdf
Here is a link to the attachment drive gear: http://www.mendingshed.com/attachmentgear.html
Here is a link to the bevel pinion center gear: http://www.mendingshed.com/pinionwormgear.html
Let me know if you have any questions.

No rotating movement from the mixer, only fast clicking sound after beater was lodged.


This is an excellent mixer and worthy of a professional or DIY repair.. You stripped a gear inside the mixer that is there just for that reason. Now the machine requires a tear down and replacement part. if you can post the model number we can advise on how to do it. If it is the new pro series model they cost between 4 and 5 hundred new to buy, the repair is going to cost between 80 and 100 dollars by a professional or about 30 dollars by you.

Front attachment won't turn


It sounds like one of the gears inside the head has failed. You will need to remove the head and take it apart to work out which one. It should be relatively easy to get hold of the part you need once you have identified it. Please post your model number for us to point you to the right parts list.

Kitchenaid Household stand mixer. Model no.


it is hard to tell you exactly what it could be, but a common problem is after a while the transmission gasket does deteriorate and will begin to leak oil.the gasket is part number4162324. the rattling noise inside your unit is most likely cause by a chipped gear inside, this can happen when the unit is put under heavy loads, such as dough. this problem could get worse as there may be fragments inside that will damage it more.hope this helps

Thanks

KitchenAid KP2671 - Spaghetti cutters stopped turning. Makes loud noise.


this is common for any device that has a motor,either the gears are grinding or the motors contact brushes need replacing, it will have to be looked at to determine the exact cause

Gear cap which attaches to the drive spindle falls off


there should be a lip on the shaft that hold this up. You insert the shaft from the bottom and a pin goes through the gear to hold it in place. Look at the IPB HERE.
