If your mixer should

• Is the fuse in the circuit to the

mixer in working order? If you

• Turn the mixer off for 10 to 15

seconds, then turn the mixer

back on.

• If the problem is not due to one of

the items mentioned above, see

Why wont my classic kitchenaid mixer switch off


Good Morning,

There is a spring inside your mixer attached to the speed control switch and speed control arm, the spring can sometimes get caught on the slide bar that is just below it inside the mixer. The other reason is that the speed control switch plate in the rear of the machine (that the spring attaches to) vibrates the three speed adjustment screws out or in and the spring will pull the speed switch (control arm that you use to control mixing speed when using the mixer) back to the stir position after you try to turn the mixer off.

If it is a spring problem you will have to do a full tear down to get at the spring and either free it or replace it. If it is a problem with the adjustment screws on the speed plate, that can be handled at the rear of the machine and is twice as easy to get at but sometimes much more frustrating to adjust. There are "YouTube" videos on the internet that will walk you through the process of adjusting your speed control plate just Google "adjusting speed on kitchenaid mixer" I hope this helps. please let us know if it does and if you have other questions just post them here and we will "FixYa"

How to replace the speed control plate


Take the back cover off, remove the wires. Unclip the spring from the bottom of the plate, don't let it fly back inside the housing. Unlock the 2 screws at the top and undo them. Fit the new plate, each screw 8 turns in to start with. Hook up the spring, put on the wires where they came from. Start machine on speed one, and adjust the top screws evenly to give the planetary 13 to 15 revolutions in 15 seconds. Lock the screws up with the lock nuts. The screw at the bottom is then adjusted so that it gives a slight speed increase when you enter speed 2 from speed 1.

Rattling noise after changing the planetary gear


The housing has to be worn if the bearing has play. Try a little tape around the bearing, or some thin brass shim stock. Of course epoxy may be a solution, if applied around the i.d. of the bearing seat. A little shortning on the bearing will keep it from sticking to the epoxy.

I cannot get the cord on my Dualit mixer to come out very far.


The cord has twisted inside the housing and is now binding or it has slipped out ofthe housing and is wedged between the cord housing and the case. If it is still within warranty, send it in, if not, you'll need to carefully open the housing to get the cord into the cord housing.

How to oil kitchenaid stand mixer


First disconnect the power. After this You will need to disassemble the unit by first removing the access panel at the rear of the unit. Now you can remove the siler band around the mixer. Remove this and then also remove the screws around the upper housing. After removing these, tilt the unit to reveal two more screws. Remove these and now you can remove the upper housing by lifting the housing while slightly twisting it. After this is removed you can now see the main gears and the motor. To grease the inside gears, you will need to simply move the old grease that has been moved around and put it back onto the gears. I would also inspect the grease very carefully as sometimes there can be chunks of plastic or metal in it. Whirlpool puts more than enough grease inside the mixer to last its entire life, and the only time you ever really need to change it is if your gears have been destroyed and now is contaminating the grease.Hope this helps.

Thanks

Kitchenaid Household stand mixer. Model no.


it is hard to tell you exactly what it could be, but a common problem is after a while the transmission gasket does deteriorate and will begin to leak oil.the gasket is part number4162324. the rattling noise inside your unit is most likely cause by a chipped gear inside, this can happen when the unit is put under heavy loads, such as dough. this problem could get worse as there may be fragments inside that will damage it more.hope this helps

Thanks

The locking mechanism won't lock anymore so it has to be held down to mix


The "return spring" is broken or unhooked. If it is unhooked, you can open the unit up and reattach it. If the plastic holder for the spring is broken then you could try to fix it (I won't mention a 15watt soldering iron).
Otherwise, replace the mixer; temporarily, use a large rubberband to hold the lever in locked position.

6qt Pro Kitchenaid Mixer not mixing


Hi. If you goto the Kitchenaid website you can do a search for the parts catalog for your model of mixer. Download the catalog. It will assist you in disassembling your mixer.

Remove the silver band around the top of the mixer. Remove the top cover and look at the top front of the machine and locate the transmission housing. If it's plastic, carefully inspect this housing for cracks. If you find cracks in this housing, IT is the source of your troubles. This cheap piece of plastic has no business being installed in a high-priced mixer. Your machine probably failed when you were mixing heavy bread dough or cookie dough. When this cover cracks, it can strip the worm gear shaft, its bearings and the bearing seats. It happened to me, and many thousands of other users I expect. Insist on a metal trans. housing for your replacement.

You may be able to have Kitchenaid pay for these parts even out of warranty, just don't tell them that you opened it up. Take it to an authorized repair place and let them assess the damage. Use their estimate to confront Kitchenaid. Be persistent in your complaint, keep asking for a manager to get involved in your case. They paid for my replacement parts even though I was 5 months out of warranty. The higher up you go in the management dept., the more likely you are to have them pay for your parts.

Once repaired, sell it ASAP!

If this solution has assisted you, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45
