Question about KitchenAid KSM150PS Artisan Series Stand Mixer
Hi MARYP24. I hope you’re having better summer in Oz than we’re having a winter here in the States… I’m still digging out from the 30 inches of snow we got last Fri/Sat... and we’re expecting another foot or more on Wednesday, but I digress.
So you want to purchase two parts; a Lever Latch (the black button that helps lift the head of the mixer) and the Black Thumb screw (black button screw that is at the top which helps screw attachments).
It would be helpful to have the Part List manual as a reference. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website at: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home. Having the Parts List on hand will also be helpful as you will have to disassemble and reassemble your mixer to replace the Lever Latch. The Thumb Screw is pretty simple to ‘install’.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> and enter the 6 character model number, KSM150 and select one the files listed for your model that appears under Parts List (61): KSM150PSWH0.pdf (773.44 KB) and save that file to your PC.
Turn to Pg. 5, titled: Base And Pedestal Unit, and locate Illus. No. 17, Black Lever Latch (Part No. 9709280) then turn to page 6 & 7, titled: Case, Gearing and Planetary Unit, and locate Illus. No. 3, Black Thumb Screw (Part No. 9709194). These are the two parts you want to reorder along with their respective part numbers.
Here are four potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com. Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do some comparison shopping.
The vendors I’ve listed are located in the U.S. but you might be able to find vendors in Australia with the part numbers. KA mixers fall under the Whirlpool corporation, so you might do an online search for Whirlpool parts vendors in Australia before trying Stateside vendors.
Here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer.
Good luck. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

Testimonial: "Thank you for your advice. I have heard about the terrible snow storms hitting the USA. Maybe the Canadians in Vancouver can use the snow! "
