As long as the platform that you have your mixer on is stable, you shouldn't have any movement problems. if the movement is coming from the base of the unit and the screws are coming out try using a fastener glue such as lock tight.hope this helps.

Mixer head is loose beater scrapes bottom of bowl makes loud thumping noise

I assume you mean that the top half of the mixer, above the pivot pin, moves with respect to the lower half of the mixer, the stand part. There is a pin on which the top half pivots which becomes loose.

Turn the mixer over and look up where the pin goes through the two pieces. There is a screw there which secures the pin. Tap the pin into position and tighten the screw.

Mixer has come off of stand

It will go back in if you back off the screw that was supposed to lock it in place. Look at the mixer part of the unit and make sure that the pin slides thru the hole. If not then turn the screw ccw a turn of so. Now make sure the pin slides easily thru the two holes in the stand part of the mixer.

Now carefully line up the top and bottom halves - look thru the hole in the stand until you can see the mixer's hole line up, then slide/tap the pin into the hole

Now turn the mixer on its side and look for the screw in the mixer casting. Turn it clockwise until tight and the pin will not come out again . . . . for a longer time hopefully . ..

My kitchenaid stand mixer is leaking oil

First off -- if it's still under warrantee, you'll want to go to and find the nearest service center. The next thing I say starts with "void the warrantee" steps. :)

It's very simple to open a stand mixer to see if you've got a simple problem or a bad one.

Unplug it.

Follow the aluminum "Kitchen Aid" band to the back of the unit, there's one main screw. Remove this, and set it aside with the band which should come right off at this point.

Now, there should be two screws on each side of the unit where the band used to be. Remove each of these. They're all identical, so no worries if you mix them up.

Now you can lift the top off of the unit and see inside. The motor is at the back of the unit, the gear box at the front is where the oil is coming from. Try (GENTLY) to tighten the screws that hold the gearbox together. With a little luck, the gearbox screws had come loose and it was oozing oil out through the seals. If they're all firm, then you've got more serious problems and you'll want to find a service center for it.

Good luck!

4 1/2 quart kitchenaid mixer head jumps when mixing

Adjusting the screw didn't work for me the first time I tried it.  I was afraid of loosening the screw too much, and so I didn't turn it far enough.  Turning the screw counter-clockwise until it stuck out several millimeters finally worked.

Stand jumps

The height of the beater is easy to adjust on the tilt-head model.  Tilt the head back, and look into the pivot from the front of the mixer.  You should see a screw on the hinge.  With a flat blade screwdriver, rotate this screw half a turn counter-clockwise to raise the beater height.  Lower the head and check that the beater does not touch the bowl.  Repeat until the adjustment is satisfactory.  To lower the beater closer to the bowl, turn the screw clockwise instead.

KitchenAid Countertop Food Mixer

ok firstly if you have a stand mixer with the lift bowl you have to put a dime on the side of the bowl at the base and see how much clearence is needed to be taken away. if the dime gets moved the mixer is ok. if not take off the flat beater, take out the bowl, and look at the back of the stand. just below the motor about 2 inches you will see a screw. turn it to the left a quarter of a turn. dont over adjust do it slowly. if you have the one that you tilt the head back on do the same thing with the screw up to you get to the adjusting part. the screw will be in a different spot on those mixers. it is located in the neck of the mixer. it is right in the area that tilts back. the dime shouldnt fly around the bowl it should just gently get tapped. and never use the wisk when adjusting always use the flat attachment. and always adjust slowly never over adjust.

How do I add oil to my kitchenaid stand mixer?

if the oil is black or dark green this is the transmission grease. There is plenty in the case don't worry. You may have a cracked transmission case or a bad gassket. I think the most likely thing is a loose screw or two. Take the trim band off, 1 screw. Then take the 4 screws that hold the cover on. You can now lift the top and take a look for the sourse of the leak
