"Screws just fall out all the time, the world is an imperfect place." John Bender - The Breakfast Club.

 

I came across this site looking for the same answer. I tinkered with my KSM90 model and think I found the solution.

 

If the hinge pin is vibrating out of its slot, unplug the mixer and flip it upside down. (Removing the bowl makes it easier). You should see a screw centered over the hinge pin. Center the hinge pin and tighten the screw.

 

This should do it, although I tightened about every other screw on the machine before I found this one.

 

Let us know if it works

Check your Brushes  or bushings or whatever there called ) those little black things on the side of your mixer above the speed selector and the up/down switch) Check to see if they have started to wear down then i recommend taking it in for service. Good Luck!

SOURCE: Kitchenaid mixer makes a clanging noise

Hi. If your mixer is under warranty, call Kitchenaid. They are very good at replacing mixers under warranty.

If you are out of warranty, this is where the fun begins, NOT!

Remove the silver band from around the top of mixer. Remove 4 screws that secure the top cover, remove cover and at the front top of the machine locate the transmission cover. Inspect this cover carefully for cracks. If you find cracks in it...You have just discovered Kitchenaid's dirty little secret. A cheap plastic transmission housing! The failure of this cheap part is the cause of all of the rest of the damage inside the mixer, which may include a destroyed worm gear and shaft, destroyed bearings and their seats. You're not alone. I estimate that thousands of these plastic parts have failed causing great damage to the rest of the mixer

Kitchenaid's replacement housing is made out of metal. If you feel up to the task of repairing the mixer yourself goto the Kitchenaid website and do a search for the parts catalog for your mixer model, these will assist you with disassembly, reassembly and parts ordering.

If you're not up to the task, take it to an authorized repair place once you have put the cover back on.
Even if you're out of warranty, you may be able to have Kitchenaid pay for the replacement parts, they did for my mixer. Be persistent with them and try to get to a manager with your complaint. This cheap piece of plastic has no business being installed on a high-priced machine.

Hi . Chevron FM ALC EP-2 grease is what you need for the lubricant. This has a Mineral Oil base, allowing for it to, at some time, drip into whatever it is that you mix without concern for your health. From what I can, tell this is the only thing that needs to be done. Clean out as much of the old grease as possible.

We have a K45SS mixer problem. When it is on the lowest setting it hums and the beaters barely turn. The next setting up has a noise but the higher speed settings work just fine. What is the problem?


the lower setting is for stirring. this is a high quality machine that is made to take a beating. you are just hearing the motor wind up. think of it like a jet engine starting, its made to run its smoothest at high rpm's, so it sounds funny at low rpm's but nothing is wrong with it.

Kitchenaid mixer motor quit , I dont really see any thing wrong with the brushes.


Obtain a copy of the Repair Part List for your model from Kitchenaid.com.
Download a Copy of the Kitchenaid Service manual.

http://www.kitchenaidparts.be/centers/servicemanual/mixer.pdf

First, you may want to adjust the mixer's speeds:

1. Loosen the lock nuts enough & Turn the 2 top screws clockwise until they cannot be turned
anymore. Leave the bottom screw alone for now.
2. Use a dab of white paint or paper whiteout to mark the positions of the Phillips screws.
3. Plug in your mixer and Set the speed selector to "Stir".
4. Turn each top screw One full turn couterclockwise (alternating between Left and Right)
Keep making one full turn at the time (for both left and right) until the motor starts running.
5. Put your hand near the Agitator shaft and allow it to brush your finger slightly. Use your
watch or clock and start counting the number of times the shaft touches your finger in
60 seconds. The correct count should be 60 RPM (Rounds Per Minute). If it is less
or more than 60, give each screw 1/4 turn counterclockwise or clockwise and start counting
again. Now tighten both lock nuts.
6. Set the speed selector to "6" and turn the bottom screw either clockwise or counterclockwise
to achieve a speed of 180 RPM.

For your reference, the planetary RPM's for the 5-qt. tilt-head Artisan Stand Mixer are as follows:
Stir speed - 60
Speed 2 - 95
Speed 4 - 135
Speed 6 - 180
Speed 8 - 225
Speed 10 - 280

Second, if the mixer won't run:
Remove the Control Plate Assembly (36), the Phase Control Board (39)
and the motor Governor Assembly (35). Inspect for loose connections,
burnt or damaged components. If they seem to look OK, re-assemble
them and test the mixer. If the motor still won't run, then I might suspect
a defective Phase Control Board (39).

Which is the better mixer of these old models: K5A K5-A or K45 SS and what is the difference? KITCHENAID HOBART K5A K5-A 300 WATT MIXER and the KitchenAid Hobart Vintage K45 250 WATT. Thank you


Hello ajlina,

All of these are great home use units, all the attachments are interchangeable between these. The difference between these mixers is the K5 is a 5 quart mixer and the K45 is a 4.5 quart mixer. As I own both of them they are great in the kitchen and have the same durability.

Have any more questions please post to this thread and I will be happy to assist. Thank you for using FixYa.

My Kitchenaid mixer (k5ss lift bowl?) smells hot


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.

Diane,

It appears that you've got some internal transmission gear issues, and a situation similar to my wife's mixer, which we got new in Dec 2006. It could be as simple as the gears have become loose and are making different contact, hence the noise. The higher the speed, the louder, higher pitched sound you'll get. It may also be indicative of a potential gear failure (after all our increasing noise, the bevel gear broke and the mixer 'froze'). If your mixer is under warranty, contact Kitchenaid. If it's out of warranty, then take it apart and do a diagnostic exam of the gearing. Whatever you find you should be able to fix yourself. Be sure to have the Kitchenaid Part Manual (Part No. 8212278 Rev D) on hand if you attempt to disassemble yourself. It also lists all the parts so that you can determine, which parts, if any have failed. You'd think that the Kitchenaid name would warranty their mixers for a lifetime... but alas they do not. So much for quality in America today!

Kitchenaid mixer motor makes loud grinding, squeaking noise.


lgardash, Are you sure it's the motor or could it be the transmission?
It 'sounds' like you've got some transmission gear issues, and a situation similar to my wife's mixer, which we got new in Dec 2006. (Within a week of her first using it, she contacted KA Customer Care and the only 'care' they offered was an explanation that the new KA Pro Mixer gears are all metal and to expect it to be louder than previous models that used a plastic gear (to fail). Well, there's an acceptable level of noise, and an unacceptable level (you don't need to be a mechanical engineer to know when something doesn't sound right) and it seems that my wife's new mixer's operating noise level was always unacceptable. It finally 'died' this past October.) OK I've vented enough on KA... now what might be your problem(s)?
It could be as simple as thorough normal use the gears have shifted slightly in the transmission and the gear teeth are making different contact, hence the grinding/squeaky noise. The higher the speed, the louder, higher pitched sound you'll get. Alas, the noise may also be indicative of a potential gear failure (after our mixers increasing noisiness, the bevel gear broke and the mixer 'froze').
If your mixer is under warranty, contact Kitchenaid. If it's out of warranty, then take it apart and do a diagnostic exam of the gearing. Whatever you find you should be able to fix yourself. Be sure to have the Kitchenaid Part Manual (Part No. 8212278 Rev D) on hand if you attempt to disassemble yourself.

Are attachments for a KitchenAid K5 compatible with the K55?


That would be incorrect. If the attachment is for a hobart kitchenaid mixer then it will fit all models of kitchenaid mixers including the brand new pro series because the attachment port and drive gear has not been changes since 1925 or 6 when it was first introduce by the Hobart company.
