Question about KitchenAid KP2671 Professional 6 Series Stand Mixer

While kneading bread my mixer suddenly starting hanging up at the back side. It makes the full circle but when it gets to the back it stops and "hums" and then sometimes will go on but most of the time will not. Help! I've lost my best friend in the kitchen!

It sounds like you have lost some teeth from your worm gear. This usually happens when the mixer has been overloaded. The teeth on the worm gear are designed to fail first to prevent more serious damage. To replace the part you will need to open the head on your mixer. The gears are at the front of the mixer packed in grease. It should be obvious that the worm gear has broken once the head is open. If it is not the worm gear, with the head open it should be easy to spot the problem. The gears are available as spare parts from several places on the internet. search for "kitchenaid worm gear"

Never used new bosch universal plus making bread started rattling sound


I do not know a lot about this machine. I am a DIY fix anything. It sounds like one of the mounting points on either the motor or the gearing gave way. Regardless it is new, send it back & have it fixed or replaced. Sorry, I know that is not what you wanted to hear, but is safest considering your investment.

Kitchen aid mixer has a scream when using dough hook.


A little pin or setscrew or key has failed. Maybe a gear has slipped out of place. Anyway, the thing needs to come apart to find out what happened. When taking things apart, line up each item off in a tidy row, put screws in little containers near the part they fit.
Repairclinic.com may have instructions, and probably have the parts.

Mixer arms shake when kneading bread


You have not supplied a model number and the bowl lift models are not all the same. A couple of items you could check, make sure that the bowl retaining clip that engages with the dimple on the pedestal side of the bowl is not broken. Make sure any bolts/screws holding the pedestal to the base or the pedestal to the motor are tight. Even if you supply a model number I can't think of anything else to look at unless the handle is not lifting the bowl up tight enough. I think on some models the arm holds the carrier up with some pressure which would help stop the wobbles.

Used the bread kneading hook, after 10 minutes, smoking


The mixer motor has probably overheated, as proper use and care was not being followed with the stand mixer.

Bread doughs are recommended to be mixed on speed 2 only and never for longer than 7 minutes. With the resistance of a bread dough that is provided against the beater, mixing for over 7 minutes may overheat mixer and cause smoking.

Please consult your use and care guide to refresh your memory about how to properly use your mixer for making bread doughs.

My mixer was straining to stir bread dough. Now the motor turns on, but the arm does not rotate.


Did you hear a CRACK sound just as the mixer stopped running? If so, the plastic transmission housing may have failed & destroyed the worm gear and the front and rear bearings and possibly deformed the bearing seats as well. It happened to me. Although these machines are marketed stating that they can knead bread dough, they can't. Mine failed 5 months out of warranty, after only30 batches of Sourdough Bread. Take the top cover off of the mixer and look for the transmission housing near the front of the mixer. If there obvious cracks in it, it is your problem.

Bread hook use


Use it to the side. This will pull the dry ingredients off the bowl. If the dough is coming out lumpy, make sure you follow the recipe exactly. Putting dry into wet will give different results than putting wet into dry. If this doesn't end the lumps, try a different type of flour.

Mixer stopped turning when I was making bread


You probably have stripped the gear in the head section. It can be replaced, but I would consider this a advanced repair since you need to push steel pins out of the shafts to replace the gears. Use google to find a local repair shop, or fix it yourself if your mechanically inclined, parts are available online (and not that expensive).

Motor is not running now


Im a service tech for hobart and repair these mixers often-is it worth repairing the unit?YES it is.I have never seen a motor burn up on these units,i have seen keys sheared and gears broken but thats the extent.There is a overload/reset button that sits on the back of the mixers pedistal,if its tripped when you push it in it will click.when these units need service it is usually from overloading the unit with too much product.Any other questions let me know.
