If you turn the mixer upside down, you will be able to see a locing screw which holds the hinge pin in place.

Center the pin and tighten the screw.

SOURCE: the locking pin on the

I had the same issue. I just finished tearing mine apart only to find that the lock just wasn't engaging with a slot in the base of the mixer. Try lifting up the head of the mixer to expose the height adjust screw in the hinge between the base and the head. By tightening mine down a couple of turns, the lock can engage the slot again and the lock works. You may have to do a little tweaking to find the right balance between height adjustment and latch functionality, but at least you won't have to tear your mixer apart like I did!

SOURCE: My wife's kitchenaid classic 250 watt mixer wobbles on the base

It sounds like your mixer likes to take a beating, ive never dropped one and for good reason, they weigh quite a bit. first check to see if all the rubber legs on the bottom are still there. if they are the only possible solution to fix it after being bent or warped is to either re-shape the part using a tool strong enough to do the job, or to replace the parts needed. the hinge pin part number is 16910. is the base is bent the part number is 240151-1. If the lower portion of the mixer itself is bent or warped this is a serious problem and will require you to dissassemble the entire unit. part number for the lower gearcase is 240350-4 Please not that all the parts list are white in colour. hope this helps.

Thanks

SOURCE: Problem for KitchenAid 300 Watts KSM90 Ultra Power

This is common problem among kitchenaid mixers. If you are hearing no motor sound what so ever, The likely cause is the carbon brushes are worn or gone completely, and will need to replaced, they are located at the left and right sides of the unit and only fit ONE way. part number for both brushes is W10260958 and comes one in a package. These are a wearable part and when gone will not create an electrical field for the motor to run. If however these are visually OK, the next probable cause of this will be the motor control board, this can cause a great deal of electrical burning smell when it goes. part number for the board is W10119326. The board can be replaced but does require some know how of the unit.Hope this helps

Thanks

SOURCE: seating the brushes on the Kitchenaid ksm90 mixer

You don't need to seat the brushes. Remove the brush caps and pull the brushes out by their springs, being VERY careful to note the position of them since they only go back in one way. Measure the free length of the spring before pulling it out. It is critical that you write down the length sticking out with very slight pressure on it so that it is seated against the armature when you measure.

Clean the curved surface of the carbon brushes with a sharp knife being careful not to scratch the curved surface. If you have them installed wrong they will not go all the way in and will not contact the armature and it will not run. Measure the length, as done above, of the spring to make sure it is in correctly!! If it is not in correctly the spring will stick out 1/4 inch longer than it should.

SOURCE: Kitchenaid Classic -Mixer Head wobbles or shakes back and forth

Lay the mixer on its side and look up through the base. You willnotice a small set screw. This holds the pin tight. If the set screw gets loose the pin willl begin to move out and the head will wobble. Simply tighten the set screw. I just did this to my Kitchenaid mixer 10 minutes ago and it now works fine.

Hinge pin came out from head of mixer and can't put it back..will only go through part way.


did you turn your mixer over and unscrew the set screw on the hinge shaft before trying to put back in? there is a small set screw that holds the hinge pin in place during normal operation. the screw sometimes comes loose and the shaft will vibrate out of it's normal operating position but when you try to push it back in the screw now stops the hinge shaft from going in, You have to turn the mixer upside down and look into the base cavity and you will see the set screw in the middle. Loosen first, return hinge shaft to normal operating position and the re tighten the setscrews, you can be firm with this screw, let us know if this helped

Top part of mixer is bouncing when in use.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
The Head Lock is most likely worn. The 4.2 mb Service m\Manual is located here:
http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/mendingshed/kitchenaidservicemanual.pdf

You may have a worn hinge pin: Figure 7 page 7 of the pdf file.
The spring for the head lock can be also broken. Item 20 this link: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5136226&diagram_id=28251571#d28251571

See page 22, figure 72 in section 5 of the service manual for pedestal hinge repairs. Most likely the set screw for the head lock has come loose.

Your parts can be found here: (with some exceptions like item 20 above)

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/kitchenaid-parts/mixer-parts/Model-KSM90/0593/0212320/P0408117/00004

This information should get you going if your able to read the manual and follow the sometimes vague instructions.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Mixer was turned upside down during move some oil leaked out should I have it repaired


YES..... It's a KitchenAid... it's worth putting a little money into, and you want to guarantee that everything is in tip, top shape. I had mine fixed 15 years ago.... it was 8 years old then, it is still working great!! It is worth it and will last..... who knows? I'll probably pass this down to my daughter!

Ksm90 mixer won't unlock


Look for a reputable dealer that repairs KitchenAid mixers. It is worth the little extra money to keep it going well. I had a much needed repair 15 years ago...... it was 8 years old then, and it is still in great shape and working superbly!!

The top part of the mixer has about 1/2 inch play and must be lifted in order to put in lock position


It sounds like the bar that the head hinges on has come out. It is located on the base and should be flush with the side of the mixer on both sides. Just knock it back into position and then turn the mixer over to tighten the screw that holds the hinge pin in place. It might also be that you need to adjust the height of the head by turning the adjustment screw on the hinge. Lift the head and the adjustment screw should be visible.

Kitchenaid Classic -Mixer Head wobbles or shakes back and forth


This may have a simple solution: 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.

If the beater to bowl adjustment quickly comes out of alignment, you may need to seek service. You may find a Kitchenaid certified service location locally at the following website:
