Question about Kenwood Food Mixers

Open Question

My tools don't fit into the tool socket, the stick of the tool is too long for the hub. This happened suddenly as I've been using them together for a while!

I have a Kenwood mixer KM630 for a while. Last time i used it, the dough hook didn't attach itself properly and got stuck. I managed to release it eventually. Now as I try to put tools into the tool socket, they won't fit, the hub seems too shallow. I can't imagine why as it looks perfectly normal..

SOURCE: mixer attachment

I had the same problem and I put veg oil on the top of beater and wrap the beater with a hot towel. I then lightly tapped the bottom of the beater until it moved up enough, then I tapped the side. Finally I tapped the top and it came off.

SOURCE: KitchenAid 600, Stand Mixer -

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.

SOURCE: MY kitchenaid mixer has always oozed oil but

The oil that is "oozing" is actually grease. If it is laying on its side the grease will leak out but isn't really an issue. If it is leaking while the machine is right side up, it usually means you have a problem with the seal. When it comes to the spring not bending allowing the attachments to lock onto the shaft, that is a bizarre problem as the spring is just tension and isn't internally attached to anything inside the machine. If you want you can replace the planetary gear but that seems a bit drastic just for the spring. We usually recommend 1800Parts for parts and accessories because they carry EVERYTHING! So the seal they might have but I would bring the machine to someone to look at the planetary gear to make sure everything is in working order. If you are in New York you can bring it to us.

A scre to fix bgh stsnd mixer

If there is another screw on the mixer that fits were you are missing a screw, take it out, put it in an a reclosable plastic bag so it doesn't get lost, and take it to the hardware store to get a matching screw. Get a stainless steel screw if possible. Avoid cadmium-plated hardware; it should not be used around food (cadmium plating has a yellowish color).

If the missing screw has a knob on it for use without tools, you may have to substitute a wing screw. It may be necessary to take the mixer to the hardware store to be sure of a good match.

Artisan mixer quit rotating. I took it apart and the hub bevel gear was frozen in the case. I beat it out but the bearing surface is pretty deeply scarred. I am wondering if I can sand the shaft enough...

You can certainly continue to use it without the accessory drive gear. Repair without replacing the gear and housing (the proper way) will leave you with a less than optimal accessory drive but if you don't overwork it it could last. Clean it out and polish the bearing surface on the gear up a but then get some good grease into the grooves on bush & bearing and bang it back together. You don't have a lot to lose.

Dough hook

Hi, the new style tools do not fit old style mixers, yours probably had the small circlip on the shaft, the new ones dont have this, and it's this what held your tool in place

Kitchen aid mixer has a scream when using dough hook.

A little pin or setscrew or key has failed. Maybe a gear has slipped out of place. Anyway, the thing needs to come apart to find out what happened. When taking things apart, line up each item off in a tidy row, put screws in little containers near the part they fit. may have instructions, and probably have the parts.

I have a new kitchenaid mixer and both times i've used it the cake did'nt come out right, it was bland and it fell apart and that never happened before. what did I do wrong?

It could be that your over mixing the batter. It is very easy with a KitchenAid to push a batter too far, and you get too much air, or cream the butter too much into the flour, or press all the oil out of peanut butter. Try using the mixer for only as much to get the matter mixed.

Cannot insert grater attachment into front of KitchenAid all the way.

Since I do not have your mixer in front of me, here are my best guesses:

a. It can't happen, but since it does --
b. There is something inside the hub preventing the sttachment's shaft from going in all the way.
c. The square of the hub and shaft are not lined up with each other.
d. There is some sort of damage to the hub interior or to the attachment shaft.
e. The attachment shaft is no longer straight.
f. The thumb screw is now going in at an angle (other than 90 degrees).
I've now run out of ideas.

Bevel gear and worm follower gear no longer stay together

they should be a tight fit as the clip is just to help retain position
if they are ment to be loose replace the clip and inspect the groove for the clip as the edges may be worn to a taper rather than a sharp edge which will allow it to be moved out under load
