Question about Kenwood KM800 Major Classic Stand Mixer

1 Answer

The blades in my Kenwood mixer keep slipping out of the housing. I can't see anything wrong with the blades so it must be the fitting inside.

    I have the same problem with a KM005 mixer, There is a spring clip on the shaft of the mixer blade and a recess in the socket the mixer fits into coming from the gearbox, these ar both worn. Obviously the mixer shaft can be replaced (it screws on to the blade) and I am equally sure the socket can be replaced. But knowing appliance manufacturers, I suspect that it won't just be the blade socket which needs replacing, I suspect it will be a replacement gearbox job!!! Can anybody prove me wrong?

I have a kitchen aid mixer moder KP26M1XLC, the planatary keeps falling off the mixer housing. Any suggestions on how to repair

You are going to need to remove the top housing and look inside, there is a circlip on the main planetary shaft that retains the planetary and mixer shaft assembly. You may get away with a new circlip but if the groove that engages the circlip is damaged you'll probably need to fit a new planetary as well.

Why won't the blades spin on the mixer ?

what sort of mixer is it? If it is a small hand help are the mixing blades fully inserted up to the little bumps on the side of the rods of the mixer blades where they attach to mixer. If a larger mixer like a kenwood, agin make sure the blade / s are properly inserted.

I cannot get the cord on my Dualit mixer to come out very far.

The cord has twisted inside the housing and is now binding or it has slipped out ofthe housing and is wedged between the cord housing and the case. If it is still within warranty, send it in, if not, you'll need to carefully open the housing to get the cord into the cord housing.

What is the red switch for on Kenwood Chef A901?

If the attachments that you are talking about are the dough hook and the whip, then the red lever is not used to put them in or take them out. The red lever releases the plastic housing on the end of the mixer, which then exposes the mounting hole for the major attachments such as the grinder, sausage maker, etc. You push the red plastic lever, then gently pull off the plastic end of the mixer. It should come off with absolutely no force. Then insert your food grinder or other attachment with the red lever held back. Once the cog on the grinder is aligned with the fitting inside the hole, release the red lever so that the recessed hole on the grinder will become engaged. The Kitchenaid classic stand mixer and the Viking stand mixer have essentially the same set up.

Mixer runs but blades slip when you add the food

Hi Victoria. There is internal damage in your mixer's transmission. The unit needs to be serviced, and repaired.

Here is something you can try on your own. Unplug the mixer, remove the single screw that holds the silver band. There are now 4 screws that hold the top cover, remove them, and then the cover.

At the top-front of the mixer you'll find the transmission housing. If this housing is made of plastic, check it carefully for cracks in the housing or near its screw holes. If you find any cracks in this housing, you have found the source of all trouble.

Although Kitchenaid advertises "All metal transmission", the truth is that they use a cheap plastic part to support two of the most important shafts in your mixer. This cheap plastic part will fail at some time when it's mixing cookie or bread dough. When it fails the gears and shafts jump out of position and major damage occurs. This is why it was listed on Craigslist. The previous owner wanted to get rid of it.

Kitchenaid's replacement housing is made of metal. Kinda makes you wonder...

Unless you're mechanically adept, you either need to fix it, or get rid of it. If you're not up to the task of repairing it yourself, then take it to a small appliance repair place for an estimate.

If you're looking for a new mixer, go to and search for a make and model of the mixer you're considering and read the actual customer reviews.

Kitchenaid is not what it once was. Steer clear.
