Question about Kenwood Food Mixers

Open Question

I have a Kenwood KM210 that lost the nut that holds the planetary drive/beater socket on. Could you tell me what size it is? It seems to be either 1/4-28 or 6mm. Thank you.

Kitchen aid model kg25. vibrates and beater hits bottom of bowl

Your worm gear is no longer seated and that is more than likely because the housing cover is probably the old style plastic and it has cracked which allows the worm gear to jump up during operation and turn out of sync. The worm gear turns the drive gear that works the planetary gears which in turn drives the beater. If the worm gear is not turning true then of course it is pushing the planetary out of true as it turns, which causes the beater to slam the sides of the bowl. The question is this...does the beater hit the bowl in the same place on the bowl every time? Or does the beater hit the bowl in different places every time? If it hits the same place then it is probably just a planetary gear of which there are four gears involved and it could be any one of them. It it hits a different place every time it is most likely the worm gear and cover. In either case parts will cost between 30 and 50 dollars. and it takes about an hour to fix.

Planetary assembly low and beater not locking

Edward, it sounds like your planetary is starting to separate.Where the center shaft connects to the planetary commonly separates, the pieces are machine pressed together, and can separate, usually your beater, and planetary plate will just fall off into the mixer, while the center shaft stays up inside the mixer with the gears on it.

What you will need to do is buy a new planetary assembly, you do also have the option to have it pressed back together by a machinist, but it is usually cheaper just to buy a new planetary. According to your model number you have a Onyx Black mixer, here is a link to the replacement planetary on our website:

That should solve your problem, also here is a link to the service manual in case you need any help taking the mixer apart:

And of course, if you need any help you can call us and speak with a KitchenAid technician over the phone

Thank you,

Professional 600 575 watts 6 qt. beater stem is loose and lets beater drop onto bowl.

b68be83b-c0cb-45d6-8d74-337f1cf098bd.jpgThe part you see is called the planetary, it has two shafts, the long one is called the center shaft and if it is falling off you need a new planetary, the second shaft (shorter) is called the agitator shaft (the beater attaches to it, if this is the culprit then1 you are not attaching the beater correctly2 the locking pin that the beater attaches to to hold it in place is missing3 you have way too much "gunk" build up on the agitator shaft and the beater is not attaching correctly4 if the beater falls into the bowl with the agitator shaft still attached you have three additional problems a) the snap ring a top the agitator shaft has broken off or come off which in turn means that
b) the gear at the top of the shaft has come off and may very well been knocked around and possibly damaged beyond future use which means that you will need a new one and also
c) the shaft pin that holds the agitator gear in place has come out or been broken also
the fix is easy and your parts cost $ will be from $30.00 to $80.00 dollars depending on which parts you need. Now before you get palpitations, cost are listed as a possible need
1 new planetary $30.00, you may not need
2 new agitator shaft and gear assembly $27.00, pretty sure that you need but maybe not
3 new gasket $6.00
4 new gear grease $6.00 KA says 2 oz. (don't buy a 2lb (26.00 bucks) can when you only need 2 oz).

Without more clarity or a picture I can't help further. but before you start tearing you machine apart go to the KA website and get a parts list for your mixer

let us know how you fare on this or better yet get us a little more info and we can help more.

KP26M1XMR beater shaft falls off

The beater shaft on the 6 quart mixers is part of the planetary assembly. The planetary and center shaft are pressed together, and sometimes they will come apart. The only way to fix this is to replace the planetary or you can have the planetary machine pressed back together.

It is a lot cheaper and less expensive to just replace the planetary. Here is a link to the Planetary Assembly on our website.

Thank you,

Cannot remove the flexi beater

I have read on other posts that it is the nut at the top of the beater that is causing the problem. You need to rotate it downwards toward the beater in order to have sufficient room to push and rotate the beater out. This didn't work for me, nor did attempting to remove the whole plate by undoing the lug beside the beater insert. Now that I have worn the lug and the nut I cannot get it repaired at a Kenwood service specialist as I have attempted the repair myself.
My advice is to go straight to a professional. Whatever they charge it will be cheaper than being stuck with a machine you can only use some of the time and have to replace!

I just bought the ice cream maker attachment and the metal collar on the beater shaft is stopping me from attaching the ice cream maker driver. How do I remove the metal collar from the beater shaft?

You need a small steel hammer and a pin punch. Do not try to drive
out the Groove Pin any other way (i.e. don't force it out with a regular
size hammer and a screwdriver), you will only damage the Planetary plate
and/or the Agitator shaft. Lay your mixer down on the floor and support
the Beater shaft with a wooden block before driving the Groove Pin out.

KitchenAid model KB26G1XGN. The planetary gear appears to be falling out. The mixer blades were hitting the bowl before I had the bowl in the locked position. I got the top of the gear box off but can't...

Hi TJEWKES67. Before you tear into the ‘guts’ of your mixer any further, I’d like you to make a simple check the vertical play of the planetary. Locate where the planetary comes out of your mixer’s head, and place your left index finger on the edge of the planetary (rest your nail edge of the mixer head). With your right hand, push the planetary straight up (like you were trying to push it through the top of your mixer) until it stops, then let go. How much vertical movement did your index finger feel as you did this? Your planetary shouldn’t rise vertically more than a 1/16 of an inch, or less. If that’s the case, relax, your planetary is not coming out of your mixer, but just normal play within the transmission, and perfectly OK.
Before linking the beater to bowl clearance with the planetary gear ‘falling’, it would be much easier to first check the adjustment screw on the back of the pedestal to ensure that is properly adjusted. You don’t say how hold your mixer is, but I assume it is out of warranty.
Do you still have your Instructions & Recipe Manual for your mixer? If not, you can easily download a PDF version of it from the KA website at: (
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals& Guides> and enter the 6 character model number, in your case, use KB26G1XN, and select the file that appear under Owners Manuals: KB26G1XGR5.pdf (2974.69 KB) and save it to your PC. Turn to Page 11 and you will find the instructions for adjusting the Beater to Bowl Clearance, which I have extracted for you below:
Beater to Bowl Clearance
Your mixer is adjusted at the factory so that the flat beater just clears the bottom of the bowl. If for any reason, the flat beater hits the bottom of the bowl or is too far away from the bowl, clearance.

Beater to Bowl Clearance:
Your Stand Mixer is adjusted at the factory so the flat beater just clears the bottom of the bowl. If, for any reason, the flat beater hits the bottom of the bowl or is too far away from the bowl, you can correct the clearance easily.
1. Unplug Stand Mixer.
2. Place bowl lift handle in down position.
3. Attach flat beater.

4. Adjust so flat beater just clears bottom surface of bowl when in lifted position by turning screw (A) clockwise to raise the bowl and counterclockwise to lower the bowl. Just a slight turn is all that is required: the screw will not rotate more than 14 turn (90 degrees) in either direction. (The full range of adjustment is 12 turn, or 180 degrees.)
5. Place bowl lift handle in up position to check clearance.
6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 if necessary.

NOTE: When properly adjusted, the flat beater will not strike on the bottom or side of the bowl. If the flat beater or the wire whip is so close that it strikes the bottom of the bowl, coating may wear off the beater or wires on whip may wear.
