Question about Food Mixers
Bowl support rocks a little from side to side when it runs, even when the bowl is in the locked position. Is there a screw I can tighten to stop it from rocking? Keep in mind this is the bowl support only - the head stays stationary.
David, that is a 6 quart mixer but uses the new 7&8 Quart mixer parts, KitchenAid has been covering those with a really long warranty, I want to say 2-5 years, and none of the service centers have seen them come in yet. That is not a problem on the 5 or 6 quart older style bowl lifts that we have ever came across, the best thing to do would be to contact kitchenAid directly. Their number is 800-541-6390.

SOURCE: the adjustment screw fell off
I know what you are talking about. That tiny screw in the KSM50 model to raise the beaters... there is one. I know what you mean, but I don't know how to tell you to fix it if it doesn't go back in easily. Find someone handy?

SOURCE: Kitchenaid Mixer will not lock
This sounds like an issue of beater to bowl adjustment, which can come out of alignment naturally over time and with use of the machine.
If the flat beater is striking the bottom of your bowl, this may cause the locking mechanism to loosen and may cause the mixing head to "bounce" during use.
Your Use and Care Guide will cover the "beater to bowl adjustment," which you can do at home in a few minutes with a flathead screwdriver.
Hope this helps!

I think you have a K45SS. It sounds like there is a problem with one of the gears, probably the worm gear. The worm gear is designed to be the first to fail if the mixer has struggled with a heavy dough or other difficult to mix substance. The best way to establish the cause will be to open the head up and check the gears for signs of damage.

SOURCE: Hello, I just got a
You can't fix that: the parts have been produced this way - the manufacturing has been of a low quality, with excessive tolerances. If it's very annoying you could add yourself a plastic shim - of your creation - on the inside of the slider, but this is just a kludge for which you will have to completely dismantle it.

SOURCE: Bowl Lift
I had this problem and fixed it with some grease on the bowl lift lever. I used coconut oil for the grease as its obviously food grade. I greased the exterior which was the cause of the problem and the inside of the bowl lift lever. To get to the inside you can flip the mixer over (unplug it first) and remove the base with 3 screws to improve access. If further disassembly is reqired the C clip can be removed from the bottom of the mechanism and then slide the spring out. The bowl lift stand then comes out (you need to remove one screw if it catches) and you can easily reach inside. When putting it back together get someone with small hands. The C clip is easy to drop in the machine and easily lost.
