My bowl lift lever on the hobart (bought off ebay) K5ss doesnt lock the bowl into place. What do I need to do to fix it, or at least figure out whats wrong if something needs to be replaced.


On a bowl lift mixer there is a small metal clip on the back of the bowl support arm, it works in conjunction with a small "NIB" on the back of the bowl, when you put the bowl on the support arm there are two pins that the bowl rests on, on each side of the support arm, you place the bowl on the pins then press down the rear of the bowl untill the nib locks into the clip, if the bowl is not locking in place then one of four things are wrong, one of the pins are not on the support arm, the NIB on the back of the bowl has come off (it is spot welded on) or the clip at the yolk of the support arm has worn down or broke in half and there would be no locking action without it. The pins or the clip are inexpensive if it is the Nib on the back of the bowl you will need a new bowl. Hope that helps if not pleases get back with us so we can FiXya.

The flat coated beater has worn off the coating why and how to fix it


Hi ARADAM, you don’t provide the model number or say if you have a ‘tilt-head’ or a ‘bowl-lift' mixer, which would helpful, but you can easily download a PDF version of your Owners Manual from the KA website at: (http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home).
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals& Guides> and enter the 6 character model number and select a file listed under Owners Manuals and save that file to your PC. You’ll need to have Adobe Reader to be able to open it. Turn to Page 11 and you will find the instructions for adjusting the mixer head height. I have extracted the instructions below:
Beater to Bowl Clearance
Your mixer is adjusted at the factory so that the flat beater just clears the bottom of the bowl. If for any reason, the flat beater hits the bottom of the bowl or is too far away from the bowl, clearance.
Tilt-Head models
• Unplug mixer.
• Lift motor head.

• Turn screw (A) SLIGHTLY counter clockwise (left) to raise flat beater or clockwise (right) to lower flat beater.

Bowl-Lift models

• Place bowl lift handle in down position.

Can you lengthen the beater by loosing a screw?


Hi, KLOEHR, your beater will not lengthen by losing a screw. However, if you lost your Beater to Bowl Clearance adjustment screw, then it might appear that your beater had ‘grown’ because now the beater may be touching the bottom of your mixing bowl, where previously it had not. Simply said, the beater didn’t grow the mixer head drooped.

A 200 mixer. the bowl lifting lever hits the bowl and guard.


If it hits the bowl its been dumped on the side and bent it. I have done this on sight I get a mapp torch and use a pipe wrench large one and heat it up at the bend where it goes in side and bend it out. or you can buy a new one take the head off four bolts under head and one roll pin inside easy to see and replace arm. The bending is quick and cheap. it will work like new be sure and clean and luber slides wd where it goes in neck.
