Question about Bosch Food Mixers

1 Answer

Teeth keep stripping on the Bosch blender.

Blender that goes on the mixer. Plastic ''teeth'' or cogs strip flat after about 4-5 uses. The clear ones on the actual blender and the gray ones show damage on the base. Have had them both replaced 2x already! Repair shop can't tell me why. As far as anyone can tell I can using it correctly. Recipe says to mix 2 min. Works great for the 1st minute, and then it strips flat. Not doing anything too heavy or sticky. Just blender pancakes once a week.

Is there a lubrication issue? Is there a bind or load to the drive after the gears? What has changed since it worked well? P{ancake batter would not be sufficient load to eat gears. Are you changing speeds under load?

Beaters are hitting each other and jamming up


One of the beaters had jumped a gear. I understand they are nylon gears. My wife's had the same trouble. I unplugged the mixer, removed the bowl and install the beaters if you can to see where they are touching. They were two cogs off. I grapped the left (red) beater firmly and twisted it to the left. It took a couple tries and turning on the motor (with out beaters) to find the spot where they had skipped. In the end the left beater jumped back one then two teeth and now the beaters aline properly.
This will happen again with heavy dough, etc. now that the teeth are worn in that spot. Use a bread machine for the heaver dough. IMHO

When making bread dough the mixer dough hook jammed. now the mixer makes a terrible racket when used and will not mix heavy loads, ie dough.


In the mixer there is a worm drive gear, it is a fail safe so that you don't burn up your motor in just this insatance. the gear is nylon and when the machine is torqued too much the gear is designed to give out or strip. It is making a terrilble racket because all those chewed up teeth are now being milled and ground up while you are trying to use your mixer. STOP!!! the part costs about $8.00 USD and takes about two hours to fix. You should put a new gasget in but a lot of people dont want to spend the extra $6.00 buck because you have to buy new grease for this fix also, about $25.00 more. You must clean out all the old gear grease to make sure all the chewed up gear teeth atre out of the machine, then repair with new worm gear part and then re-pack with grease and add the new gasket and close up the machine all fixed. about 3 hours time $50.00 and a roll or two of paper towels. (The grease is real messy)

Beaters will not turn, motor runs....


They seem to have a plastic gear built in as protection for overloading (prob). When the machine counters to much resistance that gear will strip its teeth causing the machine to not be able to turn, that it what seems to be the grinding problem. If it is not the plastic gear then it another gear that is "stripped(of its "teeth") I hope your problem is not a severe, but if your mixer is "locked up" then at least you found the problem...

Hope this helped, if it did (or not) please rate, thank you!

Can't get the drive coupling off my Bosch Universal to replace it


I have had my Bosch Universal Mixer with the Blender and Food Processor Attachments since 2005, and I've loved it since the day I got it... that is, until the blender broke while my son was crushing ice to make slushies...

I figured out the "drive coupler" was stripped and needed replacing, but I couldn't figure out how to take apart the "blade assembly" which includes the "drive coupler" part...

My retailer, Pleasant Hill Grain, sent me the following email:

"I am not aware of any printed instructions for removing the old coupling and
replacing with the new. We recommend holding on to the blades with 1 hand and a
towel and using a needle nose pliers to unscrew the old coupling. You would put
the new coupling on in the same manner.
If these instructions do not work, I would suggest contacting the Service
Dept at Kitchen Resources in Utah. Their phone is 800-692-6724."

I still couldn't figure out how to take apart the blade assembly, so I did end up calling the distributor, Kitchen Resources...

Dave, the tech @ Kitchen Resources, answered my call on the first ring...

Once I explained my problem, he started giving me the same instructions Pleasant Hill Grain gave
me... I explained to him that holding the blades tightly wasn't working for me.

As it turned out, holding the blades did not secure the drive shaft because
the drive shaft was broken off INSIDE the blade assembly - which is why I could
not unscrew the old drive coupling part.

Dave's next question revealed the true issue at hand... my Blender Attachment has the blade assembly made of plastic - they switched to plastic
in 2005 because the metal assembly turned black in dishwashers.

Bosch just recently went back to using metal for this part - apparently the
plastic blade assembly didn't hold up.

Kitchen Resources - the U.S. Bosch Distributor - is sending me a new blade
assembly - no charge, he said it's covered under warranty. Woo Hoo!

Best of all, I hadn't yet purchased the replacement drive coupling part, because
I wanted to know how to go about replacing the part before ordering a new part.

With shipping this part would have been a $50+ repair - you have to love
customer service of that caliber!

[Aside: You really don't need to ever put this part in the dishwasher - wash
the inside with by putting hot water and perhaps a little dish detergent inside
the blender and turning it on - rinse the outside under the sink... no
dishwasher needed! ]
