I know they have to turn COUNTER CLOCKWISE to come off the base. Sounds like "magilla the gorilla" put it on the base. Just keep at it. You might try putting some ICE in the bowl to "shrink" the bowl.

Get the bowl to release from the stand


The only way to unstick it is with more energy. Get someone to hold the motor unit firmly and someone else turn the bowl anti clockwise. There is no magic if it's stuck, just more effort required.

Beater on Kitchen Aid stand mixer doesn't touch bottom of bowl


Why would you raise the beater if you want it to reach the bottom of the bowl? You need to lower the beater. Turn the screw in until it just touches with empty bowl on high speed then turn it counter clockwise a 1/4 turn so it will just clear.

Kitchenaid stand mixer 5SSWH 325 watts. How do I adjust the bowl height? Beater is too far from bottom of bowl. Thanks! Cas


There is a screw at the bottom of the motor head (flat head) you usually can't see it because of the top rim of the mixing bowl. hard to see and hard to reach, it may also be hard to turn due to "gunk" from mixing stuff (egg butter flour sugar) turn the screw counter clockwise to lower the motor head clockwise to raise it, you may also have the wrong size beater, it is not an uncommon problem, if you are the original owner and you have the original beater it should fix your problem with the adjusting screw, however I am not clear as to your model a 5SSWH would actually be a K5SSWH, which stands for kitchenaid 5 quart solid state white mixer, if this is your model number and you have the correct beater size then the adjusting screw will work to lower the head down, adjust it down using the stir or slowest speed just untill you can hear the beater "Ding" against the bottom of the bowl, then back it off a quarter turn to adjust properly. Hope this helps, let us know

Get a copy of the Repair Part List for your model at Kitchenaid.com
Download the following Kitchenaid Service Manual:
http://www.kitchenaidparts.be/centers/servicemanual/mixer.pdf

It covers several models including yours.
1. Check/Adjust the Flat Beater to Bowl Clearance:

Turn screw (A) SLIGHTLY counter clockwise (left) to raise the flat

beater or clockwise (right) to lower the flat beater
2. Check the Beater Shaft (Agitator Shaft) making sure the Retaining ring
is flushed with the surface of the Planetary Assembly
Constant Pulling and Removal of the beaters can cause the Agitator shaft to move
3. If the above two still don't solve your problem, follow the service manual
directions to disassemble the Planetary Assembly and check for loose screws

Can you lengthen the beater by loosing a screw?


Hi, KLOEHR, your beater will not lengthen by losing a screw. However, if you lost your Beater to Bowl Clearance adjustment screw, then it might appear that your beater had ‘grown’ because now the beater may be touching the bottom of your mixing bowl, where previously it had not. Simply said, the beater didn’t grow the mixer head drooped.
You don’t say if you have a ‘tilt-head’ or a ‘bowl-lift' mixer, but you can easily download a PDF version of your Owners Manual from the KA website at: (http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home).
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals& Guides> and enter the 6 character model number (in your case, use KSM5PS)and select the last file listed that appear under Owners Manuals: KSM5PSWW0.pdf (2930.74 KB) and save that file to your PC. You’ll need to have Adobe Reader to be able to open it. Turn to Page 11 and you will find the instructions for adjusting the mixer head height. I have extracted the instructions 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.

Tilt-Head models
• Unplug mixer.
• Lift motor head.

• Turn screw (A) SLIGHTLY counter clockwise (left) to raise flat beater or clockwise (right) to lower flat beater.
• Make adjustment with flat beater, so it just clears surface of bowl.
If you over adjust the screw, the bowl lock lever may not lock into place.

Bowl-Lift models
• Unplug mixer.
• Place bowl lift handle in down position.

• Turn screw (B) SLIGHTLY counter clockwise (left) to raise flat beater and clockwise (right) to lower flat beater.
•Make adjustments with flat beater, so it just clears surface of bowl.

If you find the adjustment screw missing, you’ll need to replace it. But now you’ll need

You give it a counter clockwise twist about 1/8 to 1/4 of a turn or so and the bowl pops off.

If you need more assistance, post a comment.

Lowering the beaters on the professional kitchenaid


Hi. With the bowl-lift in the down position, look for a screw on the front of the column. Turn this screw counter-clockwise. This screw will only turn 90 degrees so don't force it any farther. Use the flat beatet to check the clearance. The beater should just clear the bottom of the bowl.

If this solution has assisted you, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45

Stand jumps


The height of the beater is easy to adjust on the tilt-head model.  Tilt the head back, and look into the pivot from the front of the mixer.  You should see a screw on the hinge.  With a flat blade screwdriver, rotate this screw half a turn counter-clockwise to raise the beater height.  Lower the head and check that the beater does not touch the bowl.  Repeat until the adjustment is satisfactory.  To lower the beater closer to the bowl, turn the screw clockwise instead.

Bistro Staned Mixer;Mixing bowl is stuck(?) to base


You have to twist the bowl anti-clockwise to release it from the base. Twist clockwise to lock it when using the beaters.
