It sounds like the mixer was overloaded and therefore broke a shaft,gears or sheared keys.

I have a 40 year old Kitchen Aid mixer, Division/Hobart. I just finished with some dough and the mixer sound like it was growling,slowed down, turned it off, does not work now

There can only be three things:
1. Brushes needs to replaced;
2. Rotor is used out;
3. wheels can be use out;

Open machine and look at these three components. First one is easy fix, you take one out and replace it with another, others two are cul de sac, I am afraid.

Drive Shaft stopped kneading dough

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

Professional 600 - makes loud noise when mixing,often stops as it blends 8 cups of bread flour and "needs a break", flat beater seems to get caught on bottom of bowl - this mixer is 1 yr. old!!

Several things:

The Professional 600 has a metal gear housing with a metal gearing. Because of this, the Professional 600 will generally run louder than other stand mixers that may have a nylon/metal mesh gearing.

How long is the bread dough being mixed for? Kitchenaid stand mixers must be used on speed 2 for bread doughs, using the spiral shaped dough hook, and mixing for no longer than 7 minutes.

If the flat beater is getting caught on the bottom of the bowl, pleasure assure the bowl is being seated correctly. You will place the bowl on the mixer arms on the left and right hand side. You will also want to take your fingers along the back of the bowl, where it butts up against the base of the mixer, and press downward. You will hear an audible click as the bowl falls into a spring latch and allows the bowl to sit flush and secure. If this is not being done, the flat beater may strike the bottom of the bowl.

If this was not the cause of the problem, please consult your Use and Care Guide about the beater to bowl adjustment. This is an easy adjustment made with a flat head screwdriver that can quickly correct the problem of a flat beater hitting the bottom of the bowl.

Hobart A-200 mixer (OLD!) runs hot & shuts down.

You have killed it by overloading the bowl. Hobart recomends no more than 65% bowl capacity on doughs & 75% on batters or icings. Replace the motor or the whole unit

Pops out of lock under a heavy load

Hi Susan. There is no worse feeling than the feeling you get when you find that you've been seperated from your hard-earned money by a company that markets a product with glowing phrases of what their product can do...And then doesn't deliver on it's promises. Kitchenaid mixers can make short work of bread dough NOT! My Kitchenaid HD Pro (475 watts) self destructed after only 30 uses of making my Sourdough Bread. The problem? A cheap piece of plastic that takes the stresses of two important shafts in the mixer. Cheap, shoddy parts in a mixer you paid top dollar for. Kitchenaid shows no shame in doing so.

What is happening with your mixer as it tries to mix your dough is that the head unit is thrust back and forth and side to side (bucking). Eventually hinges become loose and sloppy. Kitchenaid's behaviour is legal and beyond reproach, so make your next mixer purchase an informed one.

Goto and do a search for your Kitchenaid model. You'll notice that you're not alone in your mixer troubles.

I solved my mixer problems by buying a used Hobart 20qt. Commercial mixer (A200) and rebuilt it. When mixing heavy dough you should only use about 60% of the bowl capacity. less, if your mixer is agonizing with the amount of food in the bowl..

You will be able to replace the thumb screw. Be prepared to wait for at least a month for the part to arrive once ordered.

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.

Dry clumps in pizza dough

Hi. You should consider a few things. They type of hook you use, can greatly affect your end result. If you're making a yeasted dough with a high protein percentage 12-13%, you should be using an "ED" hook, this is a spiral hook that has a sharp turn at the tip. You can find them on eBay for a competitive price. I believe that Hobart also sells them, but for a higher price. They are very good for mixing pizza type doughs, they also do an excellent job kneading the dough.

Have you checked the flour for lumps before it goes into the mixer? Have you tried sifting the flour?
Are you adding all the liquid and flour at once? If so try adding flour in stages to all the liquid. If you find that this solution helps you, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45
