Question about KitchenAid K45SS Classic Stand Mixer

1 Answer

I recently purchased a Hobart (K45SS) mixer off Ebay. It seems to me, as I have seen newer model kitchenaid mixers in use, that the rpms are really high on my mixer. In stir mode it just spins incredibly fast. Is there any way to address this or is it common to this older model? Thanks so much for any advice.

Sorry have no idea how to use a mixer ,thats not my domain but the obvious solution here to me is buy a power reducer to put in line so when you want it to go slower you use the power reducer,i have a orbital polisher /sander for the automotive trade and when i polish my cars i use a 110v dropper transformer for a old fashioned sowing machine that was american made and so its 110v well we use 240 here so i use this old transformer to slow my polisher down so i dont burn or burnish the paintwork ,Couldnt you do the same here to slow the mixer down ¿¿?

Kitchenaid K45 Mixer will only run at one speed, fast


is it a K45 or a K45SS? If it is a K45 you will have to replace the filters inside and probably the speed control plate, if it is a K45SS then you need a new phase control board. The K45 is pre 1978 and the K45SS is post 1978. Your information is correct on pre 1978 K45 models that the capacitor is bad, but it might be cheaper to go garage sale hunting and find a second machine as the parts are no longer made and having spares on hand may be a significant advantage in the future, also there are a great many of the K45SS parts that will also repair the K45 mixer so it may not be a practical solution. Watch ebay regularly for K45 parts, they come up every couple of months. On the parts diagram also look for the K5 diagram as it is identical to the K45, one is a 5 quart mixer and the other one is 4.5 quart, same parts same motor same everything.

Where can i find a hobart k45 replacement cord


You can purchase a replacement power cord from Amazon.com. It is part number 9701025 and includes the grounding style plug which the original did not have. It can also be purchased from your local Sears parts store but it will be much more expensive

Which is the better mixer of these old models: K5A K5-A or K45 SS and what is the difference? KITCHENAID HOBART K5A K5-A 300 WATT MIXER and the KitchenAid Hobart Vintage K45 250 WATT. Thank you


Hello ajlina,

All of these are great home use units, all the attachments are interchangeable between these. The difference between these mixers is the K5 is a 5 quart mixer and the K45 is a 4.5 quart mixer. As I own both of them they are great in the kitchen and have the same durability.

Have any more questions please post to this thread and I will be happy to assist. Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a Hobart KitchenAid Mixer Model K45SS and it runs fast on low (Surges speeds up and down)what is causing this problem


Hello Mayfix,

The problem with your mixer is the speed control switch, this switch is located at the back of the unit. It is usually black and has all of the wires coming into it, the Item # 1394070 and cost $27.95 it can be located at RepairClinic.com he is a link
http://www.repairclinic.com/Kitchenaid-Switch-Parts?z=100&gclid=CKSD5NriuKcCFUVqKgodIE2b_g

You will have to adjust after you install you will adjust the two screws at the top of the switch while the machine is running inorder to make sure that you are getting all the speeds. Be careful as there is a possibility of electrical shock if you touch the wronge thing.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I took a KitchenAid K45 apart to clean (made in


What everyone is forgetting or they just don't know is that...The K45 introduced by Hobart in 1962 and was replaced in 1978 by the K45SS are two completely different machines. With completely different wiring systems. The K45 is wired together with wire nuts and the K45SS used connectors on the Speed control switch. All of the websites posted above are for the K45SS (Stands for Solid State) The manual for he K45SS is easy to get from Kitchenaid as the mixer electronics did not change from it's introduction in 1978 to 1986 when Hobart sold the Kitchenaid division to Whirlpool. The K45 on the other hand is a product and property of Hobart NOT Whirlpool or the Kitchenaid division of Whirlpool. The K45 Manual ... well I just can't find one! They way wires are routed is totally different in the K45 from the K45SS so the diagram in the K45SS manual does not help. Also the brushes in the K45 were square not camphor-ed like they are in the K45SS so there is no right or wrong way to insert the brushes in a K45. Whereas; in the K45SS there are four ways to insert the brushes in their holder and three of them are wrong. The K45SS brushes go into a completely different brush holder than the K45. The K45SS is the same today in 2012 as it was in 1978. The K45 is the same only from 1962 when Hobart introduced it to 1978 when it was replaced with the new Solid State model. prior to 1962 it was the K4-A model and it was different entirely. So if the people asking for help say their mixer is a K45 we should be asking for clarification as to a K45 or a K45SS.

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.

More info re: n50 hobart mixer


Judy. Hobart was sold to Illinois Tool Works (ITW) several years ago. The Kitchenaid product line was sold to Whirlpool Corp. several years ago too.

The new N-50 mixers have a motor that is designed by Hobart, but no longer built by Hobart. Last year Hobart began out-sourcing approx. 12-15% of their componnents to Asia. Their parts catalog does not show anything but metal gears. I suspect the new motors have been built in Asia. Wattage is not the output of the motor, but how much power it takes to run the motor and is no indication of how much power goes into your mixing bowl. The true measure of mixing power is horsepower. The N-50 motors are rated at 1/6 HP. Wattage claims by mixer manufacturers is a complete snowjob, and they all do it. Consumers have no protection as a result of this policy. It is a marketing ploy to make you believe that this indicates output power. Shame on all of them! Most componnents of the new N-50's are still manufactured in the USA.

I see that you've done some homework on Kitchenaid Mixers. I wish I had before I bought mine. Yes, they have a plastic transmission housing, and yes, they fail under strong loads demanded by bread dough and stiff cookie dough mixtures (my HD Professional 450 watts failed 5 months out of warranty, after only 30 uses making bread). Go to the www.consumeraffairs.com website and search for Kitchenaid mixer problems and reviews and brace yourself for a shock.

My mixer failed on Oct. 28th. and I had to fight tooth and nail with Kitchenaid to get them to re-imburse me for the cost of the parts that were destroyed by the housing failure. Here we are in 2009 and I'm still waiting for one more part. Kitchenaid parts take at least a month to arrive (in my experience).

I didn't do the research on mixers until mine failed. Since then I've purchased an older Hobart N-50 (with a motor BUILT by Hobart), and this is what I recommend you do, as it will save you much grief down the road. Mine was manufactured in 1990 and only needed. re-greasing to make it like new.

You can find them often on eBay but will have to buy without trying them. Try to find one that is newer rather than older, as a rebuild will get very expensive. I got mine from a Rest. Equip. Wholesaler and was able to try it out in all gears. The previous post (solution) was correct in saying that you should look for one that has a black knob on the shifter handle, this will be a newer one as opposed to an ancient one with an all metal shift lever and potentially worn out innards. If you find one, take it to Hobart, or a Hobart tech can come to you (check service rate) have the unit cleaned, inspected and re-greased. Sit back and take comfort in the fact that these mixers were built like a tank, and will probably outlast you.

Most of all. Good luck, and happy hunting. ricardok45
