If you tip the entire unit on it's side you'll find a screw holding the pin described above in place. Take a flat head screwdriver and tighten that baby up. You'll be all set.

Hinge pin came out from head of mixer and can't put it back..will only go through part way.


did you turn your mixer over and unscrew the set screw on the hinge shaft before trying to put back in? there is a small set screw that holds the hinge pin in place during normal operation. the screw sometimes comes loose and the shaft will vibrate out of it's normal operating position but when you try to push it back in the screw now stops the hinge shaft from going in, You have to turn the mixer upside down and look into the base cavity and you will see the set screw in the middle. Loosen first, return hinge shaft to normal operating position and the re tighten the setscrews, you can be firm with this screw, let us know if this helped

The motor head on my kitchenaid 600 is loose.


Two. One easy one not so much. There are three screws underneath the motor on your mixer. any one of these screws coming loos will cause the moter compartment to vibrate and move about, easy fix remove motor and retightem. Really is an easy fix 15 mins. second solution; one of the motor mount screw positions have broken and the motor head is no longer fully attached to your support tower and it will have to be replace which means a full tear down and a new part ordered and installed. look at the bottom of the motor head where the power cord goes into the mixer and look for cracks in the metal. Let us know what you find. We can direct you to the proper sites for parts list and parts.

On my Kitchenaid Artisan mixer the 3" silver rod fell out the back. How do I slide back in?


I an sorry but the only Rod in the back of a K45SS is the pivot hinge pin that holds the motor head onto the base. if it fell out then the answer is simple. Turn the mixer upside down and wiggle the base while sliding the pin back in. Once the pin is back in place, there is a set screw in the middle of the shaft that you can see while you are replacing the pin, turn this back down with a flat head screwdriver untill it is firmly against the hinge pin. The culprit of the problem is this set screw. It came loose and allowed your hinge pin to vibrate out and then fall down or fall out as you said. once the set screw is back in place you will be fine. To avoid this problem in the future you might remove the screw entirely and put a drop of "Lock-Tight" on it that will help hold the setscrew in place for a very long time.

Vibrates and beater hits bottom of bowl


Try adjusting the height of the head by turning screw #36 counterclockwise a turn or so. This will raise the mixing head so the beaters no longer hit the bottom of the bowl. Refer to parts list:

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%208212010.pdf

If the pivot pin #18 is not centered and secured then center the pin and turn the mixer on its side to tighten screw #31 from underneath the mixer to secure the pivot pin.

Shaft keeps coming out


tighten the screw under the base that catches the pin. Turn the mixer upside down you can see the flathead screw in the casting. With the pin centered tighten the screw.

The pin that holds the mixer to the stand keep working it's way out when I mix dough.


Hi, Mixing Dough is tough. the neading hook really works hard and the pin will like to wander out on the left side of the mixer "right side if your facing the it". What I did was find an smaller elastic band and with the pin sticking out a 1/3 of an inch from the opposite side from which it wanders out.

loop the band on it as many times as possible so its stays on tight . with this you now have a bumper and as the pin vibrates to wander out the elastic bumper will gently keep pulling it back during the vibration cycle keeping it in check .

Works perfect but still inspect the pin and bumper before each use.

Kitchenaid Mixer head wobbles bad


The solution provided by luannej is useful only if your mixing attachment is striking the surface of the bowl. By adjusting the screw located at the junction of the head and base, you are actually controlling how far the head is allowed to tilt forward and, thus, the height of the attachment above the bottom of the bowl. Although the attachment striking the bottom of the bowl will lead to wobble (and noise!), it isn't usually the root cause of the wobble. In fact, the wobble may be causing the bowl strikes and adjusting the head height only hides the problem.

The head of the mixer is secured to the base by a large steel pin. Any play between the head and base comes from this hinge and its resulting tolerances. To "tighten" the sloppy tolerances causing your wobble, follow these steps: 1) Lock the mixer's head down and turn the entire mixer upside down. 2) Looking deep into the hollow base, find the small slotted set screw. This screw actually presses against the pin and takes up the slop between the head and pin. Note that this screw is not the large slotted screw I mentioned earlier visible when you tilt the head back. 3)Tighten the small set screw as much as you can. Your wobble should be greatly reduced or eliminated now. 4) Lastly, you may want to readjust the large screw controlling the head's tilt to optimize the distance between attachment and bowl. Hope this helps.

Head of mixer droops


I just fixed mine this moring!!
Solution:
1- Lift head. In the lifted position you will see the head of an adjusting screw. Turn it to the left say a half turn.
2- Lower head and see if it is still too low. If so, do it again.

I had to turn mine like two plus full turns.
I beleive it goes into a nylon insert so that the threads are cut as the screw is put in the first time. If the screw is too loose, it may be possible that over time the head could slowly drop because of vibration and the screw slowly moving inward again. If that happens, a new nylon insert may be needed (but that is a different story).

There is another screw that may be loose of the head moves too much right and left. I also had that issue. This screw will be seen if you lay the machine on its side and look up the shaft (pedestal) of the base (large empty area the head attaches to). You will see a small screw head (first item up the open part). That set screw holds the unit in position on the hinge pin to stop movement from right and left.
You will find a full service manual in pdf at:

Hope this helps.

Tilting too much


i had this same problem. so i wented to the kitchenaid website and looked up the user manuel. it said to adjust the screw that is in the middle of the hinge part between the head and the stand. you can only see it if the head is lifted. you have to turn it counter clockwise to raise the head and clockwise to lower it until the flat mixing head just clears the bottom of the bowl. i hope this helps and it is clear enough to understand
