How to I install a cotter pin that came out?

Are you are referring to the pivot pin that joins the mixer head to the stand?

If so, it can be slid in place after you turn the whole mixer on its side and look up the underside of the stand. There is a screw which locks the pin in place. Loosen the screw and the pin will go into place. Tighten the screw afterwards.

Is a kitchen aid model # KSM5PSAC the same as KSM150SP?

The KSM5 and the KSM150 are different mixers. They are both 5 quart mixers and use the same gearing and motor. However the bowl design is different. The KSM5 is a 5 quart bowl lift, which means the bowl locks into the arms of the mixer and raises towards the head of the mixer, where the ksm150 mixer is a artisan mixer, which is also a 5quart mixer, but the head of the mixer tilts back and the bowl twists into the base ring to lock into place. These two mixers will take different bowls and beaters.
Thank you,

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

Unit wont come on.. tried several power outlets .. I checked the brushes.. they look fine.

First disconnect the power, and remove the carbon brushes again. They will only go in one way and if incorrectly placed inside the unit, the mixer will not operate even if you fix the problem. If the brushes are correctly placed inside the mixer then this problem will most likely be caused by the main control board. You can check this visually by removing the back panel with the power removed. Once you remove this you can see the main board, visually inspect it for any burn marks and also smelling for ant burned wires can prove useful. Part number for the main control is W10119326. Hope this helps.

I need help in correctly reassembling my Kitchenaid KSM 150 mixer. I used the help on the web to successfully take apart, clean and regrease my mixer. However, I have not yet been able to successfully...

First dissconnect the power supply.Next, the locking hook must be facing towards the back of the unit. However the lever itself must be placed inside the bottom portion of the unit going out to the side. Next you need to connect the metal link to the lever and UNDERNEATH the locking hook. Once you have done this you can now put the screw in to hold down the lever. Your one speed problem could be caused by the adjustment screws that are connected to the main board at the bottom. if these are not set correctly and most importantly EVENLY the mixer wont operate correctly. The next possible solution is that the main control board is faulty and would have to be replaced part number for the board is w10119326. Also I have added this link from Whirlpool that you can use. Hope this helps. Thanks

Mixer switch is locked

If this is a 325 watt Artisan, there is no safety switch I know of unless its in the circuit board. Your mixer is broke.
