Mine is stuck too and it's so annoying. I used terry cloth and hammer the bowl to knock the bowl down (1-2 times and not too hard). I think the bowl is up a bit and over locked when doing bread dough.

I have a Dash Everyday Stand Mixer 3qt. After mixing , I couldn't remove the bowl from the base. Its stuck. How do I remove it if it has mix in it? I have tried the warm towel around the base of the bowl(...


Take your batter out with a ladle and rubber spatula. Spray the base with WD40. Or stand the base on hot water and soap, just enough to cover the base of the bowl.

Get the bowl to release from the stand


The only way to unstick it is with more energy. Get someone to hold the motor unit firmly and someone else turn the bowl anti clockwise. There is no magic if it's stuck, just more effort required.

My bowl gets stuck. It is extremely difficult to unscrew from the base. It's like it is getting tighter and tighter while it mixes


Well you will be happy to know that it is only a matter of "Wear and Tear" The culprit can be one of two possible things. The screw cup on the mixer or the bowl itself. Understand that...the metal on the bowl or mounting cup are pressed or what you might call metal stamping. When you use the bowl and the mixer over time the metal wears down and or compresses and it takes more pressure from you when you seat the bowl for use and the pressure created by the use of the mixer when the bowl is in place is caused because the locking cup and bowl screw together the same way that the mixer turns and cookie batters or bread dough help to lock the bowl tighter and tighter. Now that you know the reason how do you fix it?? Well the screw cup is the easiest and least expensive. Just order one off the internet and when it arrives unscrew the three retaining screws and put the new one on. If that doesn't fix it then you may have to consider a new bowl. Hope that helps.

My bowl spins so fast that the ingredients flu out of the bowl


The bowl is not supposed to spin, it locks into the base of the pedestal. Engage the lugs and turn it one way to lock it up.

Beater is not close enough to bowl


If it is a ksm103 there should be a spring on the shaft, it should look similar to this: http://www.mendingshed.com/kacentershaft.html

When adjusting the screw you should be turning it out, which will make the beater closer to the bottom of the bowl, when properly adjusted you should be able to place a dime in the bowl, and the flat beater should just move it around barely. that would be about 1/16" in clearance.

Head does not lock but when adjusted whisk touches bowl


The screw is purely for adjusting the head height and that is with the flat paddle. If the head is not locking when the paddle is at the correct height then the locking mechanism needs to be adjusted. If you take it to a Kitchen Aid authorised service person they will sort it for you, they will have done heaps of them. Often the solution is with a file, if you go too far there is no going back so best left to the experts.

KitchenAid KSM150 bowl won't stay put


I'd be looking at making sure the beater is not banging on the bowl and that the head hinge isn't loose. The bowl is secure on the base with this system that has been in use for decades so you are looking for a fault not a re-design of the system. The friction of the mix in the bowl should logically tend to tighten the bowl, not undo it. I have seen a malformed bowl once where the lugs weren't big enough and I suspect that it's possible for there to have been the odd malformed bottom plate with not big enough lugs.

Bowl is stuck in stand - can't get it out. It won't turn clockwise or counter clockwise.


I know they have to turn COUNTER CLOCKWISE to come off the base. Sounds like "magilla the gorilla" put it on the base. Just keep at it. You might try putting some ICE in the bowl to "shrink" the bowl.

The top of the mixer began shaking and thumping when running, I realized the tilt head is pressed forward a little too far, causing the basic mixing attachment to press too far down into the bowl, maybe by...


Tip the machine upside down on a towel, centralise the hinge pin and tighten the grub screw that locks it into place. This is right up inside the pedestal, there is only one screw there to see.
Now stand it up and fit the mixing bowl & flat paddle, turn the machine on speed one, if the paddle is tinging on the bowl then we now need to set the head height. Turn the motor off.
Raise the motor up and from the front of the machine look in by where the motor hinges on the pedestal. You can see one screw head there. If it's tinging the bowl then you need to turn the screw anti clockwise enough so that the paddle no longer tings on the bowl.
Once it's stopped tinging put it onto max speed and make sure it still clears at high speed, if not turn the screw until it stops tinging. That's it.

Can't get the screw adjustment to change the height of the bowl


I had a similar problem with mine - the problem turned out to be that I hadn't clicked the bowl into place corectly. If you find the bowl is tilting forward slightly then you probably need to push it into the clip at the back.
