Usually its food gumming up the works. I removed the handle and cleaned the contact surface. Used some food grade grease and applied a thin film.

Thats because there debris between the bowl yoke and ways. use wd-40 to loosen up you might even need some heat to aid youkeepmoving and spraying, after yoke is freed, use a food grade grease on the ways to prevent binding. dont forget to vote

How do i adjust the bowl height on an ksmc5os?


I'm not familiar with your model but on stand mixers with crank handle bowl lift there are 2 places for it to be. With bowl lift down there can be s screw straight in from the front on the pedestal just above the bowl lift sliding bracket, the full range of adjustment is half a turn, anti clockwise to raise, clockwise to lower. The other one is a small screw sticking down from under the gear case where the bracket that carries trhe bowl slides up and down. Clockwise to lower, anti clockwise to raise.

When raised to do whipping my professional 550 hd mixer attachment does not scrap the bowl to mix properly


You can adjust the mixer bowl up and down slightly. If you lower your bowl and look at the back you will see a little screw, it looks like a flat head screw and it is on the "neck" of the mixer.
You can raise and lower the bowl by adjusting this cam screw. You can tell that your bowl is adjust correctly by attaching the flat beater and put a dime in the bottom of the bowl, the beater should just barely touch the dime and move it around the bottom of the bowl.

The beater will not scrape the sides of the bowl, if you are wanting the sides of the bowl scraped I would recommend the Flex Edge Beater made by KitchenAid which is basically a flat beater with a rubberized edge which will scrape the side of the bowl as it rotates.

Here is a link to the flex edge beater on our website: http://www.mendingshed.com/kfe6l.html
Let me know if you have any other questions.
Thank you,

Missing the bowl raising handle


Check your manual that came with it. There's usually a customer service number. Things like that usually must be ordered dirctly from the manufacturer.

I need to raise the head of the mixer. The wire whip is hitting hard the button


Hi LEDAVETTORI, you don’t provide the model number or say if you have a ‘tilt-head’ or a ‘bowl-lift' mixer, which would helpful, but you can easily download a PDF version of your Owners Manual from the KA website at: (http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home).
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals& Guides> and enter the 6 character model number and select a file listed under Owners Manuals and save that file to your PC. You’ll need to have Adobe Reader to be able to open it. Turn to Page 11 and you will find the instructions for adjusting the mixer head height. I have extracted the instructions below:
Beater to Bowl Clearance
Your mixer is adjusted at the factory so that the flat beater just clears the bottom of the bowl. If for any reason, the flat beater hits the bottom of the bowl or is too far away from the bowl, clearance.
Tilt-Head models
• Unplug mixer.
• Lift motor head.

• Turn screw (A) SLIGHTLY counter clockwise (left) to raise flat beater or clockwise (right) to lower flat beater.
• Make adjustment with flat beater, so it just clears surface of bowl.
If you over adjust the screw, the bowl lock lever may not lock into place.

Bowl-Lift models
• Unplug mixer.
• Place bowl lift handle in down position.

• Turn screw (B) SLIGHTLY counter clockwise (left) to raise flat beater and clockwise (right) to lower flat beater. •Make adjustments with flat beater, so it just clears surface of bowl.

Hobart HZ (h600?) Raising handle is acting up


You will need to confirm the model number. An H600 or L800 have a wheel to manually turn to raise and lower the bowl. The M802 and V1401 hav a belt driven bowl lift clutch, operated by a lever. When you push the lever up or down, you are engaging a small transmission between the motor and main housing. You would need to remove the top cover and see what's happenning. It may be there is something other than the proper spiral pin joining the lift lever to the clutch input shaft, giving alot of backlash and insufficient selector movement.

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.
