    I just bought the ice cream maker attachment and the metal collar on the beater shaft is stopping me from attaching the ice cream maker driver. How do I remove the metal collar from the beater shaft?

    You need a small steel hammer and a pin punch. Do not try to drive
    out the Groove Pin any other way (i.e. don't force it out with a regular
    size hammer and a screwdriver), you will only damage the Planetary plate
    and/or the Agitator shaft. Lay your mixer down on the floor and support
    the Beater shaft with a wooden block before driving the Groove Pin out.

    How to attach a icecream maker KICA0WH to KitchenAid Artisan Series KSM156 that has a cap on the beater shaft. In the manual it shows how to attach it to the mixer with spring and no spring but does not...

    After the bowl has been frozen you attach it to the base. Then you take the part your asking about and attach it where you would put a beater or whip. The trick is to make it spin and the notched part stay in the "center of the circle". You don't use the top front of the mixer. I had to practice without the bowl and beater bar to make sure I had it right.

    We the multi-functional mixer attachments but now unable to get shredder to attach correctly

    Remove the shaft an cutter first and install the outside case of the shredder. Tighten thumb screw. You may have to lift up on a lever that runs in a groove in the shaft to remove the shaft.

    Next install the shaft with cutter attached. Lube the shaft with tiny bit of mineral oil or food safe grease. Lift the lever mentioned above and rotate till the shaft seats and then drop the lever and make sure it is engaged.

    splash a little water where it comes apart. Water will lube and soften anything holding the attachment. make sure it's unplugged so you don't lose a finger or twoOr pour a few drops of cooking oil on the button and let it run down the sides into the mechabism. good luck

    Are attachments for a KitchenAid K5 compatible with the K55?

    That would be incorrect. If the attachment is for a hobart kitchenaid mixer then it will fit all models of kitchenaid mixers including the brand new pro series because the attachment port and drive gear has not been changes since 1925 or 6 when it was first introduce by the Hobart company.

    According to the service manual this is the drip cup and is really only held on by friction. I have not tried to take my mixer apart yet but I would think that if your drip cup is too loose, all you need to do is come up with something (string, paper, saran wrap, etc) that will not actually glue it together but will add sufficient thickness to help hold it in place.

    KitchenAid KSM90 gear stripped?

    I just ran into this problem when the PLASTIC worm gear broke and then the mixer would not power on after I replaced the gear. The problem was due to the was I tried to dissasemble the mixer. I removed the two plastic screws near the top center of the mixer when attempting to disassemble. These do not have anything to do with the assembly it turns out the attached square pieces (attached to these screws by springs) must be in the proper orientation to run. I put them in the way it showed in a diagram but it did not work until I tried all four different combinations that they could be rotated. Two of the rotations on the square could be eliminated by closely looking at the end where it contacts the shaft. The round shaft marking will be evident on the square inserts. I'mnotsure how to better describe them, but the are attached by springs to the plastic screws on both sides of the top of the mixer.

    your not supposed to remove the cap. under that cap is just a gear assembly that powers the beater assembly. some of these attachments are only compatable with certain units. some of the older units arn't compatable with the newer attachments.

    Motor runs but the beater does not move

    you most likely stripped the plastic gear (Worm gear???).  This gear is designed to fail to prevent the motor from burning out under EXTREME loads (i.e. when a metal piece falls into the bowl). The plastic gear is much cheaper than a new motor.  Look around on this site to see how to get at/repair the gear.  I've found many parts on and also
