Question about KitchenAid KSM150PS Artisan Series Stand Mixer

1 Answer

The cap attachment hub flew into the bowl while mixing cookies. Now the motor seem to me locked down. Is there a gear stripped out or is this an automatic shutdown that can be overridden somehow? Thanks for your time!

Hi,
Plastic gear built in as protection for overloading. When the machine counters to much resistance the gear will strip its teeth causing the machine to not be able to turn, that it what seems to be the grinding problem.mixer is locked up or stripped of teeth.You have to access the gear and release the lock that is held by spring lock if it is locked or gear is broken buy new plastic gear.


post a comment for further assistance.

KitchenAid stops working when anything other than liquid is in the bowl..


There is a non metal gear inside the motor head that is stripped and no longer engaging the worm drive. What happens when you try to assist the turning process (try it only on stir speed, sloooowwwww) if it starts to turn and then stops again then it is the gear I spoke of. It will require tearing down the machine, cleaning all old grease, to insure that you have no ground up parts in the grease, then replace the grease gasket and gear. Hope this helps

No rotating movement from the mixer, only fast clicking sound after beater was lodged.


This is an excellent mixer and worthy of a professional or DIY repair.. You stripped a gear inside the mixer that is there just for that reason. Now the machine requires a tear down and replacement part. if you can post the model number we can advise on how to do it. If it is the new pro series model they cost between 4 and 5 hundred new to buy, the repair is going to cost between 80 and 100 dollars by a professional or about 30 dollars by you.

I have a kitchenaid profesional 600 mixer and the attachment cap keeps falling off. Do you know how to fix this?


The Attachment Hub Cap is designed to fit tight onto the Motor Housing.
But if yours does not stay, there is a permanent solution for it.
Take a trip to Home Depot or Ace hardware and buy the J-B Industro Weld Compound
(Not the 5 minute type). Mix an equal amount from both tubes (Black and Red). Use a Q-Tip
and apply a thin layer of the mixture around the rims of the cap and install it.
Wipe off any excess epoxy.
Use a strip of duct tape to hold it in place (to prevent it from falling back out).
Allow the epoxy to dry overnight or at least for 8 hours.
The Cap is now permanently attached to the the mixer.

KitchenAid wobbles when mixing


The "wobbling" 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.

Your Use and Care Guide will cover the "beater to bowl adjustment," which you can do at home in a few minutes with a flathead screwdriver.

Also, leaking of oil in a stand mixer is not necessarily indicative of a large problem.

Kitchenaid stand mixers are overpacked with oil to last the lifetime of the motor. If the motor sits idle for some time (is not used), the oil may begin to drip from the gears and settle. Oil leakage may primarily be seen from around the beater shaft or planetary action.

A stand mixer can lose up to a 1/4 cup of oil before it needs to be serviced.

It is recommended to run the mixer on speed 10 for 2 minutes in order to redistribute oil back into the motor. In order to prevent future occurences, this is recommended to be done every 3 weeks if mixer is not being used.

Stripped beater gear


It is terminal. This is the fatal design flaw of these mixers. The gears are made of soft plastic and strip easily. Even the gear housing is plastic that is either glued or melted together to make it unserviceable. I have never suceeded in finding the part from either Sunbeam or one of the many appliance repair places on the web (who charge the cost of a new mixer for repair). Sunbeam does not repair them; if it is determined to have malfunctioned due to quality or design while under warranty, it is simply replaced with a new one. I had mine replaced under warranty twice, each time they sent me a new one complete with extra bowls and beaters. Now I have three sets of bowls and beaters and no functioning mixer.

Motor runs but the beater does not move


you most likely stripped the plastic gear (Worm gear???).  This gear is designed to fail to prevent the motor from burning out under EXTREME loads (i.e. when a metal piece falls into the bowl). The plastic gear is much cheaper than a new motor.  Look around on this site to see how to get at/repair the gear.  I've found many parts on eBay.com and also PartSelect.com.

Attachments won't turn


most likely a stripped worm gear if the motor still runs but the attachments/planetary gear won't turn.
Did this happen when mixing a big batch of dough or when something fell in the bowl that shouldn't have?

K45 started smoking while mixing cookie dough


There is the possibility that if the mixer is 30 years old and it has never been serviced that the gasket around the gear case is leaking oil and in that case it would not be hard to get liquids on the armature or the stator as the gear grease in the transmission is vegetable base grease and it separates into liquids and solid and when the head is tilted up the failed gasket allows the separated oil to leak down and to the rear onto the mixer right onto the motor parts. It maybe nothing more that cleaning out all the old grease and re-packing and adding a new gasket.
