When mixing cookie dough my kitchenaid mixer bogs down when the dough gets thicker .. replaced the brushes already and runs better but still bogs down .. does it need a new motor?


When using the dough hook the speed should be no higher than 2. That said, there is a limit as to how thick a dough the Artisan mixer can handle and you may well have reached that. Under these circumstances it is normal for the motor to slow down.

If the stress becomes too great, the worm (follower) gear will fail protecting the motor from burning out.

Dough hook


Hi, the new style tools do not fit old style mixers, yours probably had the small circlip on the shaft, the new ones dont have this, and it's this what held your tool in place

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.

I bought a used Hobart A200 20 quart stand mixer that hesitates or 'gets stuck' when mixing dough or other thick (hard to mix) material. When running without a load, or only a light load it doesn't stick...


First of all, I want to say that it is common for people to overload the A200 mixer when mixing dough. The owner's manual gives an extensive chart for various substances typical of what people may mix. Depending on the consistency of the dough, the maximum batch size varies, but as an example: 9 lbs. max with 40% absorption ratio thin pizza dough, 1st gear only, 5 minutes maximum mix time. I remember this particular batch size/specification because as a technician who works on these mixers frequently, I had a customer attempting to mix 20+ lbs. of that 40% pizza dough for much more than 5 minutes and didn't understand why the mixer would stall and why his mixer was so hot he could nearly cook eggs on it's transmission case. So, a word of caution (9 lbs. at 40% A.R. is approx. 7 lbs. flour, plus the water) about overloading these. If used to mix reasonable batches, they are excellent mixers and will last a lifetime (I regularly service 40-50 year old A200 model mixers that run very well).

If you don't hear any grinding when it's stalled (which would indicated stripped gears, damaged keys, etc. in the transmission) I would say you are overloading it. Many people want to say the motor is weak when the mixer stalls, but unless the motor has been repeatedly and severely overheated to the point of shorting some of the motor's windings, that's not the case. I suggest finding the recommended capacity chart from Hobart and abiding by it and you'll love your new mixer for years.

Which kenwood mixer to buy?


Hi. Congratulations for researching mixers. I wish I had before I bought my Kitchenaid HD Pro. All mixer manufacturers over-rate their products. Goto www.consumeraffairs.com and do a search for each mixer you are considering. Most mixer failures are caused by mixing heavy cookie or bread doughs. Although manufacturers claim that their mixers can easily handle these doughs...They cannot! My Kitchenaid self-destructed after 30 batches of bread dough. "For the way it's made"! Indeed! I solved my problem by buying a Hobart N50 mixer. It's a 5qt. and handles anything I throw into the bowl. I bought mine used, and refurbished it myself. New these units cost $2,035.00 USD.

If this solution has assisted you, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45.
