If you mean bowl knocks against the mixer, move the round plate a notch on the right.

My kitchen aid mixer bowl falls out when I'm mixing


Hello Heather,

Either the grooves on the bowl lock plate are worn out, or the grooves on the actual bowl are worn out. I would start with replacing the bowl lock plate. Here is a link to the part: KitchenAid Mixer Bowl Lock Plate 4163032

This part is really easy to replace, it is held into place with three screws, remove those screws (make sure to hang onto those you will need them to re-install the new part). then you should be able to pop the old plate out. To install the new plate like up the screw holes, and press into place, sometimes you need to lightly tap it into place with a rubber mallet as it is suppose to be a very tight fit.

Once that has been replaced your bowl should lock into place tightly. However there is always a chance that the bowl has been worn down and may need to be replaced. Here is a link to the 4.5 Quart bowl: KitchenAid 4 5 Quart Stainless Steel Bowl

I have problems with the bowl staying locked into the base when I make something even alittle stiff like cookie dough. Once I add the flour and the dough gets alittle thick the bowl is tossed. What can I...


I have found that it takes nothing short of brute strength to make sure the bowl is secure. As long as there is nothing dented or out of alignment, you should be able to get it stabilized in the base by a good strong twist in the right direction. I hope this helps. There is nothing more frustrating than having to readjust appliances in the middle of mixing. If this does help, please let Fixya know by rating my suggestion! Good luck and happy mixing!

My KitchenAid mixer clicks when I mix bread dough and any other thick batters. How do i fix it?


Make sure your dough hook isn't bent.... or your bowl doesn't have a dent in it.... and make sure the bowl is properly seated and secure.

Professional 600 - makes loud noise when mixing,often stops as it blends 8 cups of bread flour and "needs a break", flat beater seems to get caught on bottom of bowl - this mixer is 1 yr. old!!


Several things:

The Professional 600 has a metal gear housing with a metal gearing. Because of this, the Professional 600 will generally run louder than other stand mixers that may have a nylon/metal mesh gearing.

How long is the bread dough being mixed for? Kitchenaid stand mixers must be used on speed 2 for bread doughs, using the spiral shaped dough hook, and mixing for no longer than 7 minutes.

If the flat beater is getting caught on the bottom of the bowl, pleasure assure the bowl is being seated correctly. You will place the bowl on the mixer arms on the left and right hand side. You will also want to take your fingers along the back of the bowl, where it butts up against the base of the mixer, and press downward. You will hear an audible click as the bowl falls into a spring latch and allows the bowl to sit flush and secure. If this is not being done, the flat beater may strike the bottom of the bowl.

If this was not the cause of the problem, please consult your Use and Care Guide about the beater to bowl adjustment. This is an easy adjustment made with a flat head screwdriver that can quickly correct the problem of a flat beater hitting the bottom of the bowl.

KitchenAid K5 Mixer Bowl Rocks Back & Forth


This may be explained with the bowl assembly. Being a bowl lift mixer, please follow the following steps to make sure the bowl is being secured before mixing:

There are the bowl-holding arms on the left and right hand side of the mixer. You will place the bowl on these arms, securing it onto the pegs.

Also, take your fingertips and press down firmly at the back of the bowl where it is resting against the base. You will hear an audible click as the bowl secures down into a spring latch mechanism on the stand mixer base, allowing the mixing bowl to sit flush and secure.

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.

I just got a new Kitcheaid Artisan 5 qt stand mixer. i can't get the bowl off of the stand. seems like its too tight, and i can't budge it. is there something i can do?!?!?


These bowls can tighten during mixing. One solution is to fill it with ice while trying to unscrew it. Soaking the base with soap is another solution. In the worst case, the bowl and the cap it fits in are replaceable.

I have had to use a homemade strap wrench on others. Be careful not to warp the bowl out of round, or it will be un-usable.

Incomplete mixing


You need to raise the bowl just a little less than the thickness of the layer presently being left behind. Too much and the beaters will touch the bowl .
