Question about KitchenAid Food Mixers

1 Answer

My mixer blades are bouncing against the bottom and sides of the bowl and making a racket. The head of the mixer bounces up and down when I'm mixing very liquid-y mixes. When I made bread, I noticed a great deal of bouncing and it seems to have lost its ability keep the right position for general mixing.

The BUSH on the spindle is worn out. You will notice that liquid blending might make the liquid to flow out through this . If so it is confirmed. This is usual as the food particles gets caught on and wear off the bush in due time.
the blade unit has to be taken out and the bush must be changed after choosing the right bush for the steel spindle.
You can confirm rotating the spindle and see if this shakes.
Hope this tip confirms the fault.

Its bouncing when mixing


The head unit is not locked in place. If the lever is in the lock position and it still bounces, the cam lever inside has either snapped off or became loose.

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 tilt-up head on my KitchenAid KSM90 stand mixer has a lot of free play, the head moves (bounces)up & down when mixer is in use. Adjusting the beater for clearance using the dime method, when you...


The head bounce sounds as if the locking hook is not engaged properly when you slide the head-lock lever to the locked position.

If this is the case, you will need to disassemble the mixer to make sure the link from the lever to hook is not bent. Another possibility is that the slot in the base the hook engages. If this is broken away, the hook will not be able to hold the head in place (I sure hope that this is not the problem).

The head to my kitchen aid mixer bounces up when kneading dough


This sounds like an issue of beater to bowl adjustment, which can come out of alignment naturally over time and with use of the machine.

If the flat beater is striking the bottom of your bowl, this may cause the locking mechanism to loosen and may cause the mixing head to "bounce" during use.

The mixing blades in my KitchenAid mixer sit too low, which makes the head bump around a lot. How do I fix this? I've tightened all the screws I can see.
