One of my blades is stuck and I can't engage the release


Make sure your Beater can slip in and out of the Beater Shaft
easily. Do not force the beater onto the Shaft if the shaft is bent.
If it cannot be removed easily by hand, use a soft rubber mallet
(not a steel hammer) to slightly tap the beater so it can be moved
up and down the shaft or from side to side. Then you can easily
turn the beater left and remove it from the shaft.

From Kitchenaid Manual:
To Attach Flat Beater, Wire Whip, or Dough Hook
1. Turn speed control to OFF.
2. Unplug stand mixer or disconnect power.
3. Tilt motor head back.
4. Slip beater onto beater shaft and press upward
as far as possible.
5. Turn beater to right, hooking beater over pin on shaft.
6. Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.

Dough hook stuck immediately after use


I just got my dough hook unstuck! The problem was the bolt at the top of the dough hook. This bolt is used to adjust the height of the dough hook. This bolt came loose while mixing and went up towards the mixer. The force of the spinning actually tightened this bolt against the mixer so when I tried to release the dough hook by lifting and turning, it wouldn't lift. The bolt was in the way! The solution is to loosen this bolt. You'll need a thin wrench that's about 15 mm. You can test loosening this bolt on the other attachments since they loosen in the same manner. You'll have to bend the white shield down slightly to get the wrench in there. It's a tight squeeze even with a thin wrench. Hold on to the lower end of the dough hook and turn the wrench counterclockwise when looking down at it. Once you loosen the bolt, you'll be able to turn the lower portion of the dough hook to lower it. Then you can lower the bolt further. Once you have them low enough, you can remove the dough hook like normal - lift and turn. Sure beats boxing it up, shipping it for repair and paying for shipping both ways!

When kneeding dough by the time the last of the flour is added the mixer does not have enough power to kneed it. A year ago it did but has gradually lost power. I have taken the gear head apart and...


HI KEN9486, from the way you describe your mixer’s malaise, the apparent lack of power during the dough mixing process does not appear to be to be a mechanical issue, but electrically induced. You’ve already put your fingers on the culprit – the brushes! Anytime your mixer’s brushes have been worn down as much as you indicated, they should be replaced.
Be sure you have the Parts List manual on hand to order the correct brushes. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case use KSM50P (Your K5SS mixer falls within this manual), and select the first file KSM50P.pdf (438.31 KB) listed under Parts List (4) but check to verify this matches your mixer model.
On Pages 6 and 7, you will find the brush & spring assembly (Illus. No. 29) and Part No. 9706416 that you need to order. Replace them both.
Here are five potential online vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com (for grease). Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do some comparison shopping.
I think you’ll find new ‘life’ in your mixer after you’ve replaced the brushes and it should be able to handle dough mixing without further problems. Good luck, I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

Detaching bread hook from machine


Im sorry if this doesn't help (if it does please rate :D), but my mother used to have an older one and the way hers came off was by holding the dough hook tightly while pushing it straight up(wich in turn is pushing the dough hook into the machine head itself) while pushing the hook up give it a ( I believe clockwise) turn and let it slide off, don't drop it lol.

Hope this helped you!

Ps there is the lever on the side that once slid, releases the 'head' of the mixer, so you can tilt it back first, this should make it easies even.

The dough hook is stuck in the beater shaft of kitchenaid mixer


It sounds like it got overloaded when you last mixed dough. It will only come off the way it went on. If it has been bent on, it may need a bit of gentle encouragement.

Dough hook stuck in machine


Hi. Is it possible that some of the dough or flour you are mixing has made it's way into the attachment point with each batch, and therefore gumming it up progressivley ? Carefully lay the mixer on one side, being carefull not to lay it on the side mixer controls. Use a rolled up towel to support the head, this will make it easeir to see the attachment point. If there's a buildup of flour, wet it with warm water and a little liquid soap, until it softens, remove the attachment and clean the areas of contact. Apply a bit food oil to the hook before using next time.

Re: your second mixer The head locking pin may also have flour in it. This would inhibit the movement of the locking mechanism along it's guides. You may have to do some disassembly to get it cleaned out. After cleaning put a drop of regular oil on the moving parts. Be sure to clean the recess that the pin fits into as well.

If that's not your problem, then the pin may be worn enough to not fully engage.

If I have assisted you, please rate my solution. Good luck! ricardok45
