Question about KitchenAid KSM90 Ultra Power Series Stand Mixer

Open Question

I have mixer model #4ksm90wh. It has a slow leak of oil from the circulating part above the bowl and into the base, probably from being tilted up. It's probably a seal or gasket that is worn. I haven't opened it up yet but if this is something a mechanically inclined person can tackle? What is the problem? Where can I get the parts and what kind of oil is used? Thank you, Ross

SOURCE: kitchen aid tilthead mixer will not lock down

The solution for both of these is a large screw that sits at the base of the head where the head and the base meet - you'll see it when you tilt the head up. This screw should not be all the way in. You can adjust how low the head goes- in the case of your blades hitting the bowl you'll want to let the screw out a bit; in the case of the locking, you'll want to screw it in a bit more.

SOURCE: Oil leaking, sounds like the problems folks are having with the K55 model

I've got the same problem, I put my mixer in a box when I moved and it must have gotten tipped over cause there was oil all over it that spilled out from inside. How can I crack this thing one and refill the oil and what oil spec does it need?

I had an SM100 which did not work when I got it out to make cookies recently. So, I have both bowls available (large and small), beaters, dough hooks, whisks and the use and care book too! I sure will miss that mixer. Contact me at lindareagan@comcast.net

Found this,may be helpful.
Why do I see oil leaking from the beater shaft of my stand mixer?
Some KitchenAid® stand mixers that are not used very often or have been tipped may experience slight oil leakage from the shaft or hub attachment. To avoid the oil leakage, KitchenAid suggests that you run the mixer weekly for short periods of time. Generally, the mixer may lose approximately X cup of oil before repair is necessary. The oil used is FDA approved and is not harmful to consume, should any get into the food that you are preparing.

What model kitchenaid was made in december of 1973?


Is the brushed band around the head missing or worn off? The model is on that band. If it worn or missing in order to correctly answer your question I need more information. Is your mixer a tilt head or a bowl lift variety? Did you look on the bottom of the base for a serial number? Some models had them there. Can you describe the ceramic piece a little better? Many models shard the same internal parts and it might not be too difficult to locate that part.

Where do you find the serial number for a 5 quart glas bowl for the Artisan mixer


The serial number for all KitchenAid mixers is located under the base of the mixer. You will need to carefully tilt the mixer over, and underneath the mixer you will find a label with the model number and serial number.

Is a kitchen aid model # KSM5PSAC the same as KSM150SP?


The KSM5 and the KSM150 are different mixers. They are both 5 quart mixers and use the same gearing and motor. However the bowl design is different. The KSM5 is a 5 quart bowl lift, which means the bowl locks into the arms of the mixer and raises towards the head of the mixer, where the ksm150 mixer is a artisan mixer, which is also a 5quart mixer, but the head of the mixer tilts back and the bowl twists into the base ring to lock into place. These two mixers will take different bowls and beaters.

My beater, dough hook, and wire whip all hit the bottom of the mixing bowl. I have been told that I can adjust them. Can you tell me how? Thank you


On the tilt head models there is a "Stop screw" that adjusts how far down the head goes. I just can't remember if it's in the head or base. I use the other model that lifts the bowl.

Kitchen aid mixer leans forward too far, causing the mixing attachments to rub on the bottom of the bowl instead of rotating just above the bottom of the bowl. how do i fix it?


Is this for a "tilt neck model? If so, the manual suggests that there is a small screw in between the base stand and the "neck" of the mixer. You should be able to screw it in or out to adjust it. Good luck!

I have model A-200-D Hobart mixer. Serial # 1575984. It is leaking oil into the bowl. Who can I call to get an estimate to service or repair this machine?


The oil leeking into your bowl is old grease that has broken down into oil and is getting past your oil seal you need to take out all of your old grease and oil replace it with hi-temp grease or a good grade lithium grease and replace your agitor shaft oil seal

Beater rubbing bowl


Although I can't find your mixer by the model number you gave me, I assume that your mixer is the kind which the bowl moves up and down not the "tilt-head" style.

See pg. 12 of the owners manual for bowl height adjustment procedure:

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%209707946.pdf

There is a screw in the base of the mixer which is turned
clockwise to raise the bowl
and counterclockwise to lower
the bowl.

Can't get the screw adjustment to change the height of the bowl


I had a similar problem with mine - the problem turned out to be that I hadn't clicked the bowl into place corectly. If you find the bowl is tilting forward slightly then you probably need to push it into the clip at the back.

Kitchenaid Mixer head wobbles bad


The solution provided by luannej is useful only if your mixing attachment is striking the surface of the bowl. By adjusting the screw located at the junction of the head and base, you are actually controlling how far the head is allowed to tilt forward and, thus, the height of the attachment above the bottom of the bowl. Although the attachment striking the bottom of the bowl will lead to wobble (and noise!), it isn't usually the root cause of the wobble. In fact, the wobble may be causing the bowl strikes and adjusting the head height only hides the problem.

The head of the mixer is secured to the base by a large steel pin. Any play between the head and base comes from this hinge and its resulting tolerances. To "tighten" the sloppy tolerances causing your wobble, follow these steps: 1) Lock the mixer's head down and turn the entire mixer upside down. 2) Looking deep into the hollow base, find the small slotted set screw. This screw actually presses against the pin and takes up the slop between the head and pin. Note that this screw is not the large slotted screw I mentioned earlier visible when you tilt the head back. 3)Tighten the small set screw as much as you can. Your wobble should be greatly reduced or eliminated now. 4) Lastly, you may want to readjust the large screw controlling the head's tilt to optimize the distance between attachment and bowl. Hope this helps.
