Question about KitchenAid Food Mixers
I was making bread. I have made this recipe many times. I had 6 cups of flour in my mixer and was letting it knead. Suddenly the hook stopped like it was stuck and the motor emitted this scream. Any ideas? Do I need to oil this somewhere?
A little pin or setscrew or key has failed. Maybe a gear has slipped out of place. Anyway, the thing needs to come apart to find out what happened. When taking things apart, line up each item off in a tidy row, put screws in little containers near the part they fit.
Repairclinic.com may have instructions, and probably have the parts.

Hi. There are several possibilities. First, you should always proof your yeast. Take a 1/3 cup of WARM water, add a half tsp.of sugar and yeast, wait 10 minutes. If your yeast becomes frothy its active and can be used. If not, get some fresh yeast. Second, use a flour that has a high protein content (10-12%) if you're not using pans to make your bread. High protein develops more gluten than low protein flour. Gluten development will give your dough body, and prevent your dough from flattening. Third, after mixing. knead the dough by hand for 8-10 min., cover and let rise until doubled, punch dough down and divide. Knead the portions by hand for 8-10 mins. Shape loaves and place on baking sheet or use pans,let it rise untill doubled,then bake as usual. Been there...Done that. Let me know how you make out. Ricardok45.

Hi REEDKL, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Based on your mixer’s symptoms, my first thought is that your mixer’s internal controller assembly (the speed knob), has gone bad. The inspection and troubleshooting of the control assembly is something you can do yourself, particularly if your mixer is out of warranty. Just be sure to have the correct Part List manual around when you start to disassemble your mixer.
If you're lacking one, you can download it from the KA website. Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in this case, KP26M1, and then select the last file: KP2671XWH3.pdf (325.07 KB) that appear under Parts List (21). Check to see that it matches your mixer model.
Turn to page 4, Case, Gearing and Planetary Assembly and locate Illus. #8, Control Assembly. This is what you’re looking for when you get the top (Illus. #1) off the mixer head.
First check to see if any of the connections have come loose. If everything looks tight then you probably need to replace it. Unfortunately the whole controller assembly is on a little PC board filled with resistors, capacitors and diodes, which was not meant to be 'home fixed' and where my ‘electronic expertise' ends. A local small appliance repair shop should be able to determine if the controller assembly is functioning properly or not, or you can just order replacement parts without the testing.
Although you don’t need to get further inside your mixer to make this repair, here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer that you might want to keep in your ‘toolbox’, should you have to delve inside your mixer in the future. The mixers displayed in the links may be different than your KA model, but the principles are the same.
If you feel this repair is beyond your capability, then I would seek out a local small appliance repair shop in your area. KA Customer Care can give you names of local KA authorized repair shops in your area, but you can also do an online search to supplement what KA may provide you. Call to explain your circumstances and find out their hourly rate and get an estimate of what they think it would cost to repair your mixer. Also, always obtain three or more estimates – do some comparison shopping.
Good luck and have fun. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

SOURCE: Hello. I have a Kitchen
I understand that you are having a problem with your Kitchen Aid 5 Quart mixer. It sounds like you have stripped the gears or the worm gear out. Although, it may not be an expensive parts repair it is not an easy task to complete if you are not mechanical enclined. There are many different little gears in these units.
My suggestion would be to take it a local appliance repair shop that works on mixers. If you can tell me the city that you live in I would be more than happy to give you the location of one or two repair shops. As the unit is so old you want to invest in a new unit and keep that one as a reminder of how long Kitchen Aid has been around.
Thank you for choosing FIxYa.com
