Question about KitchenAid Food Mixers

1 Answer

I was making a standard cake with my kitchenaid and in the middle of creaming butter and sugar together, it stopped working. Turned it off, switched plugs, let it cool down, etc - it won't turn on now and isn't even making a sound when the lever is switched from "off" to any other speed.

Either the electrical motor brushes are worn down on the motors commutator and can no longer contact the motors commutator bands,or if its a newer style mixer the triac that controls the speeds on the unit could have opened up and can no longer supply variable or even high speeds

Kitchenaid stand mixer motor head fell off


You didn't say which model KitchenAid mixer you have. Assuming that it is a tilt-head, and that the metal portion of the motor housing joining it to the base did not break, the Service Manual can be had at:

K45 kitchenaid mixer quits working under load? When beating egg whites it works great but try to cream butter and the beater stops.


It will be a broken or missing pin through a gear or the planetary or something wrong with the fuse gear. It should be easy enough to find but you will need to split the gearbox cases to check.

Beater on Kitchen Aid stand mixer doesn't touch bottom of bowl


Why would you raise the beater if you want it to reach the bottom of the bowl? You need to lower the beater. Turn the screw in until it just touches with empty bowl on high speed then turn it counter clockwise a 1/4 turn so it will just clear.

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.

I have a cream making attachment for my kenwood . how do i use it your problem?


I had one of these many years ago and, whilst I cannot remember the proportions, you warm the milk and the butter (unsalted!) very gently until the butter just melts (or melt the butter separately and add to the milk). Then put it through the machine. I seem to remember you often had to make two or three passes to get all the butter and milk to combine.
I guess that the proportions of milk to butter are quite flexible depending on what sort of cream you want. I'd try small quantities till you get the required result. Start with one part butter to 2 to 4 parts milk by weight.

My kitchenaid standmixer started to smoke, need to open


See my posts on removing the motor cover. DO NOT USE this mixer if it smoked. Something needs to burn to cause smoke. I doubt you can fix this without new parts.

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.
