Question about Bosch 800-watt Universal Plus Mixer with Attachments Mixer with Cookie Paddles & Bowl Scraper

1 Answer

Drive Shaft stopped kneading dough

In the middle of kneading dough my Universal Plus mixer dough hook stopped. The motor is still working. The drive shaft turns with great force when inserted by itself in the drive gear. But once inserted into the bowl, it will no longer spin with enough force to turn the dough hook. Its like something is loose within the drive shaft/bowl section. What do I need to fix it? New drive shaft? Bowl? Thanks.

To give the mixer strength it has planetary gears. Something may be wrong in the gear section

Sounds like the belt came off when you tried to mix the frosting while it was cold. Just too much of a load. It will have to be taken apart and the belt put back on.

SOURCE: In middle of kneading dough, the machine stopped!

Hi HENNY346. Your Bosch mixer is belt driven and from the description of your mixer’s symptoms I suspect that the drive belt has come loose or failed completely so it stopped driving the dough hook. You say that when you turn the mixer on, it makes a noise, which may be the motor running without any load, but your description of ‘noise’ is very vague.
The good news is that you should be able to diagnose and fix this quite easily (OK, maybe with a little effort) by yourself, if you are a DITY type person, feel adventurous, and your mixer is not under warranty.
Here are links to two online parts vendors for your Bosch mixer that also provide an exploded view diagram along with part names, numbers and prices. They are: Cook's Quarters and AppliancePartsPros.com It can be very gratifying to go “under the hood”, figure out what’s wrong and fix it yourself. Good luck , I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

SOURCE: My mixing bowl seems to be locked onto my Bosch

I had (have) the same problem with mine. It would stick occasionally and then one day it wouldn't come off at all. The bowl would unlock and turn like it should but wouldn't lift off. After much time and effort I did manage to get it off and found that the splines on the shaft were scored. When I examined the receiver part, the lugs (splines?) on it were worn allowing the shaft lugs (splines) to overlap the base lugs and thus becoming jammed.

I cleaned everything completely and made a batch of bread dough and it's stuck again.

I think the base receiver needs replaced but it may be part of the transmission and maybe the whole thing needs replaced, I don't know.

I sent an email and left a message with Bosch service and will post again when I hear from them.

I have used the mixer for about 4 years and love it but this problem shouldn't happen I don't think. It seems like a design flaw to me.

What is spiral hook dough?


A Spiral Hook Dough Hook is one that is used for making bread dough. It mimics the action of stretching and kneading the dough by hand. This develops the gluten content which is the elastic part of the dough that traps the bubbles of carbon dioxide from the yeast.

Never used new bosch universal plus making bread started rattling sound


I do not know a lot about this machine. I am a DIY fix anything. It sounds like one of the mounting points on either the motor or the gearing gave way. Regardless it is new, send it back & have it fixed or replaced. Sorry, I know that is not what you wanted to hear, but is safest considering your investment.

KitchenAid stand mixer KSM50PWH. Was kneading dough with dough hook attachment and it quit turning. Motor works fine but the part that's supposed to go round and round doesn't. Can I fix this?


The Nylon Worm Gear has stripped. This is designed into the part so if the Mixer gets overloaded, it won't burn out the motor. Which is odd if you have the reset switch like I do.

I have a kitchenaid 600 professional stand mixer. I was told that you can only use the dough hook with setting 2 for only 5 minutes. What do you do for recipes requiring a longer time for kneading? Is...


You can knead longer than that, but you run the risk of over heating the mixer because at that point the dough is very firm. Your best bet is to knead it by hand.

In middle of kneading dough, the machine stopped! I noticed that the gears that connect the bowl to the machine, stopped turning, when machine goes on, it makes a noise, but nothing turns.

Used the bread kneading hook, after 10 minutes, smoking


The mixer motor has probably overheated, as proper use and care was not being followed with the stand mixer.

Bread doughs are recommended to be mixed on speed 2 only and never for longer than 7 minutes. With the resistance of a bread dough that is provided against the beater, mixing for over 7 minutes may overheat mixer and cause smoking.

Please consult your use and care guide to refresh your memory about how to properly use your mixer for making bread doughs.

My varimixer R30 hook doesn´t seem to reach out far enuff to mix satisfactorily. Can the hook change shape just like that ? Or is the hook for some other kettle ?


This is a dough hook and would typically only be used to knead dough. Therefore, the extra clearance makes sense for kneading dough. For other mixer jobs, use other attachments.

Beater jams


You are going to DESTROY YOUR MIXER by kneading dough with the flat beater. Read the directions. They spell it out in big letters. Only use the dough hook for dough; only use speed 2.
If the mixer generated enough torque to knead dough with the flat beater (it doesn't), it would tear up and overwork the dough. As it is, you're lucky you didn't strip a gear.
