Question about KitchenAid Pro 600 Stand Mixer KP26M1X- DARK PEWTER, gray

1 Answer

Why won't our kitchenaid stand mixer run?

I removed the rear cover from the mixer so my wife could clean some flour that had gotten on the vent openings. The mixer operated perfectly prior to the removal of the cover but now after reinstalling it the mixer will not turn on. I have seen many different types of speed controller switches but this one blowers my mind. I started moving the control board with my fingers and now it will start and run on #10 setting, don't know if this is really the highest speed. Can anybody help me?

    The only thing that I removed was the 6-32 screw that holds the rear cover on. I did not move anything else on the controller board. That is why it is so confusing.

    Ok I understand. When I put something back together and it does not work I take it apart and put it back together again looking for something that is out of place. I understand that you feel nothing is out of place but when it happens to me I always find something out of place.

He rdnowak:
I am sure #10 in the highest speed, but are you saying it will only run at #10? if so I would start by removing the cover again. Hopefully no parts are missing. Make sure the selector switch is moving things on the board if possible. I mean if you can move it with you finger you should be able to move it with the selector lever. Sorry for the trouble but I have never taken mine apart I just clean the out side. I do no this. Sometimes I must take something apart and reassemble them several times before getting them to work the way they are supposed to.
Best of luck

Blades stuck


CRC and wriggling, twisting, pushing and grunting. Then when it's off clean out the hole and shine the shaft. Try and polish the hole without making it bigger, food builds up on the aluminium surface and a bit of extra flour locks it on.

Can't get my beater off my KitchenAid 350 Watts mixer


The button does not retract, a bit of CRC may help combined with a lot of wriggling and grunting. Flour gets in there over time and builds up and makes the paddle tight. Rasp it out a bit in the hole, try not to remove metal, you just want to remove the buildup. If you had a bottle brush that fitted and cleaned it in there each time it will never happen again. Look how long it has taken so far.

Removing paddle from 325 artisan


Get some CRC around it, wriggle and grunt for a while and it will release. Clean the shaft and the beater hole. Flour builds up in there and grabs on tight.

My wife was given a ksm90 blender. It looks like it was never used. It had a few yellow spots of yellowish greasy material on it (gear grease ?) When I started it up it had kind of an electricalish...


it should be high temperature grease. it will only drip out if the seal has dried out or cracked.i think the seal has a spring inside it may need changing they should be cheap.and easy to change. or you could always put some flour in the bowl and run it for a few minutes to see if it dries up it may just be lack of use.

After putting flower into mixing bowl large quanity of flower is ejected when mixer is turnon at low speed. Once it starts to mix then it's ok.


Firstly, I think you mean "flour".
Put in your ingredients. Cover the mixer, head and bowl, with a dishtowel. Turn on mixer to "stir" (or lowest speed). But! Mix only for 1 or 2 seconds. Repeat this, with bowl covered, until flour is mixed in enough not to fly out.
Happy baking!

Hi. Stop using your mixer. If your mixer is still covered by warranty, call Kitchenaid Customer Service, they are very good with warranty repairs.

If your mixer is out of warranty, remove the silver band that surrounds the top of mixer. Remove the top cover. At the front of the mixer, locate the transmission housing which is now exposed. Examine this housing carefully for cracks. If you find cracks anywhere in this housing, you have found the under-engineered plastic transmission housing. Kitchenaid's replacement housing is made of metal. Your plastic housing has no business being in a mixer that is marketed as being able to mix bread dough. It cannot!

If you're confident that you can make the repairs yourself, go to the Kitchenaid website and download the parts drawings. Remove the Trans. housing, remove the worm gear shaft assembly which is driven by the motor.. Remove and save as much grease as necessary to thoroughly inspect the worm gear. Inspect the worm shaft bearings. Look for cracks, or missing pieces on the bearings. Look for crunched cogs on all gears. Be prepared to wait at least a month for your parts to arrive after you order them. The replacement grease should be Shell Darina 2, or Chevron FM ALC EP 2.

If you're not confident about repairing this yourself, call Kitchenaid and determine the nearest "approved" repair shop.

You may be able to pressure Kitchenaid to pay for the damaged parts in your mixer. They are still installing these plastic Trans. housing on new mixers. Insist on a metal cover when replacing. Apparently, Kitchenaid feels no shame in their manufacturing process, and will not issue a recall notice for these housings. They are substandard at best.

If you found this solution helpful, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45.

Overloaded Motor


Are you mixing at a high speed. For bread, you shouldn't go above a '2' setting on most of the mixers and keep the time fairly short -- more isn't needed.

Sorry if this is redundant, but info posted to another problem works here as well:

KitchenAid has one of the best user forums of any company as far as I'm concerned. The participants are great and the monitors are exceptional (some of the best problem solvers you are likely to run across). You may find your experience already has a thread, if not, post it. I checked in and they seem to have added a video library that has some of the topics I've seen posted at this site.
