I have the kitchenaid Heavy Duty mixer model KS55. i tried mixing cold butter sticks and jammed the gears. The mixer still rotates when there is nothing in the bowl but the slightest resistance prevents it from mixing. i would like to try to fix this myself. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: Non-Stick surface peeling off inside microwave.

Normally you can strip and sand the old paint, get it squeaky clean, and use appliance paint. Yes indeed it is a heat-resistant enamel. You can get it from appliance parts stores, Wal-Mart, or home centers, etc. BUT if it's under warranty I would call GE Customer Relations with your model and serial numbers. They're at 1-800-386-1215 (8-6 ET) and I would also suggest you ask them for a referral to a GE-authorized servide center in your area. Good luck. I appreciate your thoughtful rating of this answer.

SOURCE: My Kenwood does not cream

Hi Julie
It could be that you are using too much sugar, therefore making a more coarse mixture. Beat your butter first, then add the sugar until your mix is as you want it. The Beater would be the proper tool for this. The whisk is for meringue or whipped cream type mixes.
I hope this helps you to some degree

How to make a cake in koryo microwave oven KMC2323

Pinched this off the internet . Method Baking a Whole Cake in the Microwave.
  1. 1 Mix your cake batter. In a large bowl, combine 3/4 cup softened butter or margarine with 3/4 cup sugar and 2/3 cup flour. Stir together with a spoon or rubber spatula.
    • You can use regular flour if you don't have self-rising, but you cake will end up more like a brownie in texture.
  2. 2 Add in the rest of your ingredients. Pour in 3 tablespoons of milk. Crack in 3 medium eggs, and add 1 teaspoon of baking powder and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
    • You can use whole, fat free, 2%, or whatever type of milk you prefer.
  3. 12Edit step 3 Flavor your cake. For a chocolate cake, add 1/3 cup cocoa powder. For a vanilla cake, add another teaspoon of vanilla extract.
  4. 13Edit step 4 Mix together. Stir well with a fork or use an electric mixer to mix for about 4-5 minutes or until smooth. If you have a food processor, you can also add all of your ingredients to the food processor for about 60 seconds to mix instead.
  5. 5 Spoon your cake batter into a microwave safe dish. This is very important! Never use a metal baking pan for microwave baking.
    • A shallow dish will probably give you the best results.
  6. 6 Bake your cake. Cook your cake in the microwave for 3-4 minutes on full power. The cake will bubble and puff in the microwave just as it would in the oven, and just as it starts to set (it'll still be jiggly), it's done.[2]
    • Check to see if your cake is baked by sticking a toothpick straight down into the center. Your toothpick should come out clean. If there is gooey cake reside on the toothpick, put your cake back in the microwave and cook it in 1 minute increments until done.
    • Take care not to overcook. If you microwave your cake for too long, it will dry out.

Kitchen Aid Mixer Model KSM5PSGR . I have had this mixer for about 15 years and recently while mixing dough, it started struggling to spin, and at some point stopped spinning. I just turned it on, and it...

it's possible the brushes on the motor are burned out. Are there 2 screw holes on the sides? You should have one on either side that look like a flathead screwdriver would fit in them? If so, inside those chambers are the brushes and springs for your motor. You can try replacing them. You should be able to order replacement brushes based on your model number(found on the bottom of your mixer). Let me know if that helps.

I have an Artisan mixer KSM150xxxx. This mixer has been lightly used for about 3 years. The other night, I tried to grind meat with it, but it just wasn't pushing anything through, like the motor was too...

Here are 2 KitchenAid service manuals
This service manual is not and exact match for the KSM150 but the internal motor control parts and gears are in the the same locations and the troubleshooting procedures are the same:

And the bigger model service manual with nice to know info:

These should help you remove the gear. Having said that... here is what may have happened but it is going to be a stretch for a limited use mixer. There may be some wear on the bevel gear shaft and it is catching on the bearing. Before you go hammering on it get yourself some emery cloth / sanding cloth and PUSH the bevel gear back to it's installed position and spin the gear while gripping the emery cloth. Your attempting to remove any ridges on the shaft so that will slide out of the housing.

When it comes time for BRUTE FORCE... make sure you put a small piece of wood at the end of the motor shaft. (not in the books!) I have ruined a motor driving the bevel gear out and it smashed into the motor shaft. (something you do ONCE!) Ever since then I always put a piece of wood between gear and motor when Hammering. The bearing may come out with the bevel gear too. It is almost impossibe to use a bearing press to remove this bevel gear but you can use a C-clamp if your carefully positon it. (
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

My Model K5SS was making a squealing sound when mixing. I unscrewed the black screws on the sides to check the lubricant but when I replaced them the mixer will not turn on at all. Is there a reset...

Those plastic screws on the sides are for the brushes for the motor. If you took them out, they need to be re-inserted in the same side they came out of and the curve in the end of the brush has to match the shaft. If you take them back out and look at them there will be a half circle appearance to the ends. Make sure that you put it back in so that the they look like this ( ) in the mixer.

Is the warranty still valid?
Is there a recall on the model you have?

Typically the problem you describe is a problem with the motor brushes or you were mixing more material than the mixer was designed to mix and the internal thermal link failed.
The mixer is too young to develop this problem without abuse of a material flaw.
If there is no recall on it and the warranty has expired your best bet is to buy a new mixer. Repair cost will typically exceed the cost of a new on if it was a cheap model costing less than $50.00.
