Question about Food Mixers

GE Profile agitates w/o filling w water at start of cycles. Unplugging to reset worked in past but not today! Acts like it's stuck in a cycle program. Was washing earlier so water line is available and not blocked.

    Thanks for response-I've had control panel replaced once & problem is reaccuring. Wondering if it is a program/electrical problem because unplugging it usually resets it and it works.
    Also this is for a GE Profile Topload Washer not a mixer.

It's a switch either in the control panel or at the top of the tub with a small tube connected to it which goes down between the inner and outer tube. As the water level increases the air in the tube is compressed until there is enough pressure to make the switch stopping the water from filling. This tube can get clogged and the switch won't work. Remove the tube and clean it out. Blowing on the tube when it's still connected to the switch will make the switch if it's working and clear.

Beater is stuck


I had this happen on my Kitchen Aid mixer. There is probably a build up of dough/cake mix etc inside the hole where the beater fits into. Fill a mixing bowl or a jug deep enough to fit over beater with very hot or boiling water. Immerse the stuck beater in the water up to where it connects in to the mixer and hold for about minute. Once the hot water has melted the build up you should be able to remove the beater. Hopefully this may work on your brand of mixer.

Mixing paddle slips off pin


We have never heard of this problem before. I spoke with our KitchenAid technician as well and he has never seen this problem in the over 20 years of working on KitchenAid mixers.

Are you sure that the beater is hooked on all of the way, and there isn't anything in the beater stopping it from turning and clicking into place? Is the pin stuck? If the pin is not sticking out all of the way, or the spring is bad/damanged it is possible the beater could come loose. You would want to replace the agitator shaft.

Mixing attachment for stand mixer is stuck


I had this happen today. I took a towel and covered all of the beater except where it attaches. I sprayed WD-40 on it. This loosened it and it came unstuck. Then I washed it thoroughly with hot water and soap. It had some dried batter stuck inside which caused it to stick. Guess I better pay better attention to how clean I get it inside. PS Don't spray WD-40 anywhere else - this is something you make food with!

Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer won't release beater


I had this same problem as well.  The beater was stuck like glue to the rotating arm, and it would not budge with any amount of pressure.  I tried the cooking spray and it did nothing.  But today I put a rag in hot/boiling water and then carefully wrapped it around the top of the beater.  I let it sit for 10 minutes. Then I put the rag in hot water again and repeated the process for about another 5 minutes.  When this was done, I covered the beater in a towel (to protect it) and forcefully tapped (ok... I pounded) it with the flat side of my meat tenderizer (it was all I had...you could use a mallet or hammer).  It took a little bit of work because I had to hammer it from the bottom, then the side, then the top to get the little spoke guided through the shaft.  But it did finally come off.  After cleaning with hot water, I put the beater on again and noticed that it was still a little hard to get on/off.  So, I put a little bit of veg. oil on it, and it seems to be better.  Going forward, I will be sure to clean the top of the beater & arm after each use and then coat it with a little oil to keep from sticking.  Best of luck!

Oil seal


1. Remove the acorn nut, hex nut, and washer that hold the "planetary" agitator section on the transmission shaft.
2. Remove the trim ring (if any) around the same.
3. The agitator section should now be able to be worked free.
4. Remove the retainer clip on the top of the agitator shaft. (Some models have a pair of hex nuts here; if so, remove those.)
5. Pry the gear up and off the shaft. Remove the square key from the shaft keyway at the same time.
6. Tap gently on the top of the agitator shaft to drive it out from the bearings and grease seal.
7. Recommend removing and replacing the top bearing at this time; it's inexpensive to replace, if you're in this deep.
8. Use a suitable diameter piece of round steel stock to drive out the lower bearing and oil seal. I don't recommend using the agitator shaft.
9. Clean thoroughly, insert a new bottom bearing and oil seal, drive in place with a rubber mallet.
10. Replace agitator shaft through oil seal and bearing, tap gently into place.
11. Fill cavity with approved lubricant. I use USP-grade mineral oil, as it is food-safe and provides satisfactory lubricity.
11. Install top bearing, tap gently into place.
12. Reverse steps 5-1 to reassemble.

Flat blade stuck on KA stand mixer


Using one of the bowls, filled it with hot water up to the shaft and where the paddle is hooked up. Using a cotton cloth, wrap it around the paddle and shaft, let it soak for 30 to 40 min. After 30 min, twist the paddle back and forth to loosen up whatever got stuck inside the shaft and paddle. Put a little of mineral oil so that the paddle will be easily remove and it will just slide out from the shaft.
