Batter climbing beaters

We have this mixer for about 12 months without any issues. Just recently, cake batter climbs the beaters until it reaches the mixer body. We checked that the beaters were in the correct holes (red-in-red). This was a boxed Duncan Hines mix. Any ideas? This happened twice in a row.

There are screws under that metallic ring on the mixer head. Gently remove the metalic ring by pushing down on its edge with a screwdriver. Once the ring is removed the screws are exposed. Tighten each one and then again to make sure they are snug. If this doesn't work, you need a new grease gasket. Good luck.

Try a higher speed , this should force the batter out using the centrifugal force generated

You need a new gear set.  Hard to find however.

The beaters might be fixable/replaceable but the bowl not spinning anymore is the more serious of the 2 problems. If this is several years old iit probably is more cost efective/simpler to replace the whole unit.

SOURCE: the mixing part of mixer not working motor is fine

Hi. Since I can't tell how much you have taken apart, I'll start from the beginning.

Remove the silver band, remove the top cover. At the top front of the mixer locate the transmission housing. If it's plastic, inspect it carefully for cracks around the screws and the body of this housing. If you find cracks, you have found the cheap plastic part that kitchenaid still installs in new mixers, and the cause of your trouble. They know that it's substandard but don't care enough to place a recall notice on this part. It may not please you to know that their replacement part is METAL like the original part should have been. "For the way it's made"! Indeed!

If you intend to repair the mixer yourself, go to kitchenaid's website, enter your model # and locate the parts list for your mixer. Download the drawings, they will assist you with your project.

Be sure to tell kitchenaid what you think of their cheap plastic part.

If this solution has assisted you, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45

Used my stand mixer one time and now it doesnt work at all


If it is only a month old take it back under guarantee, if you fiddle about you could void the guarantee. If it is out of guarantee I would be looking for a wire off the speed control plate under the rear cover. If someone has been fiddling about removing those black brush caps on the side they may have put a carbon brush back in wrong, they are keyed and only fit one way.

Kitchen aid 600 pro making a scraping sound with light load not as bad with heavier load like cake batter. Any ideas what the problem is??


Probably going to need to narrow it down to an area, is it the beater scraping the bowl? Is it in the planetary? Is it in the gearbox? Is it in the armature area? Those are all ideas of where it can be but really hard to offer solutions without you narrowing down the search area.

I have a new kitchenaid mixer and both times i've used it the cake did'nt come out right, it was bland and it fell apart and that never happened before. what did I do wrong?


It could be that your over mixing the batter. It is very easy with a KitchenAid to push a batter too far, and you get too much air, or cream the butter too much into the flour, or press all the oil out of peanut butter. Try using the mixer for only as much to get the matter mixed.

If that is the bowl that came with the machine it is not wrong. What happens from time to time is that the head on the mixer automatically adjusts causing the beater to not operate as it should. To adjust the head on the mixer place a dime at the bottom of the bowl, attatch the beater to the mixer and make as if you are going to start mixing. The beater should JUST touch the dime. If it doesn't touch it at all or is pressing it against the bowl, tilt the head of the mixer up to locate the adjustment screw located inside the shaft. Take a flat head screw driver, turn the screw clockwise (to lower the head) or counter clockwise (to raise the head). Place the beater back on the mixer, turn the machine on and see if it moves the dime moves. Once it is properly adjusted the dime should move ever so slightly.

The attachment/accessory "screw" fell into my mixer while the beaters were mixing a cake batter. The mixer froze up when it hit the "Screw" and now the unit won't turn on. Did I burn up the motor? Does...


Sounds like a classic case of the gears jumping out of sync. This is an issue that needs to be handled by a repair place or sent back to KitchenAide. The motor on a KitchenAide is very strong and it sounds like when the cap for the accessory fell in it must have somehow gotten jammed, although I really don't see how that would be possible unless there was something else in the mix as well.

Clicking


I have the same mixer. Make sure the bowl is firmly latched into the base. also, make sure the bowl didn't get bent in shipping. If the paddle hits at a regular timed interval, it's must likely a problem with the way the bowl seats. As long as you don't hear a loud hit verses just a click, it shouldn't be a problem, just an annoyance. In time, you will probably heat tapping when you use the wire wisk. I am glad I bought mine. I hope you enjoy the difference a good mixer makes.

Mixer not creaming butter and sugar...


make sure you are using the right attachment. usually for batters you want to use the flat beater. not the dough hook. the flat beater looks like a triangle with lines through the center. and make sure you are using the correct speed on the mixer. start out at stir and then go up to no more than half speed. these mixers take a little longer to incorperate batters but they do a very good job at it. if the batter is thin enough you can try using the wisk as well. but only if it is a thin batter.
