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.

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.

My KitchenAid bowl keeps coming loose when kneading dough. Any solutions?


Hello Heather,

Either the grooves on the bowl lock plate are worn out, or the grooves on the actual bowl are worn out. I would start with replacing the bowl lock plate. Here is a link to the part: KitchenAid Mixer Bowl Lock Plate 4163032

This part is really easy to replace, it is held into place with three screws, remove those screws (make sure to hang onto those you will need them to re-install the new part). then you should be able to pop the old plate out. To install the new plate like up the screw holes, and press into place, sometimes you need to lightly tap it into place with a rubber mallet as it is suppose to be a very tight fit.

Once that has been replaced your bowl should lock into place tightly. However there is always a chance that the bowl has been worn down and may need to be replaced. Here is a link to the 4.5 Quart bowl: KitchenAid 4 5 Quart Stainless Steel Bowl

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.

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.

Bistro Staned Mixer;Mixing bowl is stuck(?) to base


You have to twist the bowl anti-clockwise to release it from the base. Twist clockwise to lock it when using the beaters.

Mixer bowl is stuck can not remove


I found a solution at kitchenaid.com. It says the bowl locks in the same direction as the rotating mixer moves, so slap the bowl with your hand a few times in the opposite direction, and then take vegetable oil and using a cotton swab line the groove of the bowl. Let it soak a bit, and then slap the bowl again and push it hard counterclockwise.
