Looking for the attachment spring for a Kitchenaid RKG25HOX mixer

Can't find a spring for my mixer. This is the spring where you attach the various paddles, blades etc and helps hold them in place. Also would like to know if my old K5SS attachments will fit on my new RKG25HOX mixer.

SOURCE: attachments fall off

Excerpt from: http://www.bamix-usa.com/

It can happen that the attachments fall off the shaft as they have in time become loose. In this case simply press the spring blades lightly together with a pair of pliers

SOURCE: I cannot remove the attachment on the kitchenaid

Hello. I can assist you. I also have this mixer and I can tell you from experience. You have to lift it up about 1/4 inch and then twist it a small amount and pull it down and out. You can not hurt it so don't worry about using some force when you do this. Good luck with it.

SOURCE: MY kitchenaid mixer has always oozed oil but

The oil that is "oozing" is actually grease. If it is laying on its side the grease will leak out but isn't really an issue. If it is leaking while the machine is right side up, it usually means you have a problem with the seal. When it comes to the spring not bending allowing the attachments to lock onto the shaft, that is a bizarre problem as the spring is just tension and isn't internally attached to anything inside the machine. If you want you can replace the planetary gear but that seems a bit drastic just for the spring. We usually recommend 1800Parts for parts and accessories because they carry EVERYTHING! So the seal they might have but I would bring the machine to someone to look at the planetary gear to make sure everything is in working order. If you are in New York you can bring it to us.

How do I install the shredder?


You need to access the accessory attachment point, it's behind the silver KitchenAid logo on the front of the mixer. You'll need to unscrew a set screw (black knob at the very front of the mixer head), newer mixers have a hinged cover, on older mixers, it just pulls out. Unscrew the set screw a bit and fold up or remove the cover.



Now you will see a hole with a hollow square shaft inside, this is where the various optional items attach to the mixer.



Specifically for the shredder, you will need to attach a slicing drum to the drive shaft provided with the shredder, insert it through the drum, and raise the little bar in the rear of the slicer assembly.



Insert the whole assembly into the front of the mixer so that the square drive shaft shaft fits into the square hollow in the mixer, then lower the little bar to lock into place.

Kitchenaid whisk will no longer slip past the locking pin to rotate and attach on the spindle.


this might help... the whisk has a slightly larger whole then the other attachments. it is also inset. there is a washer that holds the spring on. if that is slightly off or bent it won't sit in the Whisks inset right. look a little closer to that and the spring. if there happened to be dried on food that could be the slight difference that can prevent it from staying one. Hope this helps!!!

My Kitchenaid mdl: KSM 155gbca is making a loud bumping noise with or without an attachment.


It is more than likely in the planetary or the fuse gear inside the gear box. Try it once you have the planetary off before you go looking inside the gear box. Easiest is planetary problem but far far more likely is the fuse gear.

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.

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.

MY kitchenaid mixer has always oozed oil but suddenly today I can no longer attach the dough hook. The spring doesn't want to move enough for me to attach it. It was fine yesterday.

My Kitchenaid mixer is tripping the power in my house. I removed the back and found two identical springs loose in the machine. Have you seen this problem before? Cheers Anthony.


Anthony,

Based on your description, it sounds like those identical springs are a part of your motor brushes. Normally, they would be attached to the motor brushes (depending on model), which are located behind the 2 slotted round access caps about mid way, front-back on the cover assy. My hunch is that the spring(s) may have gotten dislodged during a previous dis-reassembly and had came in contact with the armature and a grounded component causing a short and circuit overload ( breaker trip). I suggest that you locate the appropriate diagram for your mixer and ensure that your brushes are assembled correctly - all parts accounted for. You can get diagrams and parts lists from various online vendors, such as: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/modelsearch.aspx?model=k45ss Use the 'Motor and Control' diagram as a reference.

Good luck!

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.
