The V-1401 has a power bowl lift that is belt driven by the same motor that is used to mix. Remove top cover to check the belt. If belt is good and not slipping, is the operator handle working on /in the bowl lift gear box? If not, could be broken shear pin on handle or worn out parts in gear box. Next thing to check is the output shaft of the bowl lift gear box. If it is turning when the operator handle is engaged and the bowl lift jack shaft is not turning there is a broken shear pin between the output shaft and jack shaft. If everything is good to this point the bowl lift yoke has a large brass nut on back side of it that the jack shaft goes through. If the nut is worn the bowl lift yoke will slip, fall and/or jam. to unstick and lower the bowl , one can turn the jack shaft by hand. WARNNING : if the nut is worn enough the yoke can drop suddenly and it is very heavy.

How do i adjust the bowl height on an ksmc5os?

I'm not familiar with your model but on stand mixers with crank handle bowl lift there are 2 places for it to be. With bowl lift down there can be s screw straight in from the front on the pedestal just above the bowl lift sliding bracket, the full range of adjustment is half a turn, anti clockwise to raise, clockwise to lower. The other one is a small screw sticking down from under the gear case where the bracket that carries trhe bowl slides up and down. Clockwise to lower, anti clockwise to raise.

Will not start

I am having the same problem. I just noticed the piece of a part in the bottom of the machine. The hole where the bowl fits into is supposed to have a stop feature. Mine broke off and is in the hole beneath the lift arm. If you raise the bowl lift without a bowl in it, you will see a hole with screen mesh. That is where I found the broken parts. Now I have to find out where to get it fixed.

Is a kitchen aid model # KSM5PSAC the same as KSM150SP?

The KSM5 and the KSM150 are different mixers. They are both 5 quart mixers and use the same gearing and motor. However the bowl design is different. The KSM5 is a 5 quart bowl lift, which means the bowl locks into the arms of the mixer and raises towards the head of the mixer, where the ksm150 mixer is a artisan mixer, which is also a 5quart mixer, but the head of the mixer tilts back and the bowl twists into the base ring to lock into place. These two mixers will take different bowls and beaters.
Thank you,

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!

Hobart a200 will run just fine without anything in the bowl, once I pour my ingredients into the bowl, it wouldn't even mix the ingredients. Try all 3 gears.

Short answer: something is worn/broken inside the mixer's transmission.

Longer answer:

Since none of the three gears operate, the problem is most likely on either the worm gear shaft (probably the brass worm gear itself) or the "transmission shaft" (ironic name as all three shafts could be called transmission shafts). If you're up to the task of disassembling the transmission, which is a very messy task, you'd probably find the problem on one of the two smaller shafts inside the transmission. You'll most likely find either a broken key or worn brass worm gear. Both of these items may have enough holding strength to operate under very light loads (such as an empty bowl) but slip once a load is presented.
Also check the planetary key. Remove the planetary by removing two nuts on the underside of the transmission, where the attachments attach (careful, as the whole thing will drop once the second, thin nut is removed). You will find a long key on the shaft (or in the planetary gear, whichever one it sticks to). Make sure it's not broken, and re-attach the planetary.

I cannot raise the bowl enough for the batter to fully mix. There is always flour etc. left on the bottom of the bowl. The only way is to stand there and hold the bowl up and tilt it around..Which in my...

There's an adjustment screw as shown in the picture.
Screwing this screw clockwise will raise up the bowl so the mixer paddle reaches closer to the bottom. Don't go too far, the paddle will start hitting the bowl.

Mixer blade is chipping

If it is a tilt head mixer then adjust the screw which can be seen by tipping the head back and looking into the pivot point. Turn the screw CCW to raise the head and prevent the paddle from hitting the bottom of the bowl.

If it is a lift bowl mixer there is an adjusting screw on the frame of the stand behind the bowl holder mechanism. It rurns a cam which adjusts the height of the mixer.
See pg. 13 of the owners manual for bowl height adjustment procedure:

clockwise to lower the head and counterclockwise to raise the head for more clearance for the beaters.

Bowl lift on H660T will not raise bowl. The pinion gear turns the threaded rod, however; the screw just turns in the threaded block on the bowl yolk, without raising the bowl

The brass nut threads are worn.You have to remove the bowl yolk from the slides to get to the nut.I'm a hobart tech and repair these units often,any questions let me know----Tony.
