Kitchenaid stand mixer bowl lift not working
Yikes!!! How old is your mixer? In most cases in a bowl lift model, the plastic lift mechanism breaks. It is not hard to fix or get fixed the parts are inexpensive and it is totally mechanical not electrical to fix. Go to kichenaid.com and then click on support the drop down menu will give you a selection to get manuals and user guides, click that selection, then you go to a page that will ask you for model number, look under your mixer and use the model number on the white sticker. you will be able to download the parts list for that model. The parts list will show how the lift mechanism operates and how the parts go together. the next page will give you a part number for the parts involved in the lift mechanism. Now go on ebay or amazon and type in the part numbers that you need, you will find almost every part involved in the lift mechanism, Now get a screwdriver a punch and a non metal hammer, once you have the part list and you see how it goes together you will be able to disassemble the lift and repair. you can fix it for about $15.00 and an hours time. That does not include the wait time for parts shipping to you, that will take about a week. You can also call kitchen Aid and see where your nearest approved repair center is and take or ship your system there, "for the price of your first born". But while you are there you can buy the parts that you need. There are not a lot of authorizes centers around every corner. if you have a warranty definitely call Kitchenaid, they have one of the best "No Hassle" exchange for another mixer programs in the biz. The negative is that it ABSOLUTELY ends on day 365 of your one year warranty.
