    The same thing happend to mine yesterday. I'm thinking of putting grease, like maybe shortening.... to make it easier to dislodge.

    I cannot dislodge the bowl. I feel like taking a rolling pin to it. Here I am ready to make pie dough for Thanksgiving and I can't do it with this expensive piece of junk.

    We're mixing sweet potatos and our bowl is stuck too. I've wrapped a hammer in a wash cloth and tried hammering it out to no avail.

    This happened to me twice in recent weeks. It was just by pure luck that I managed to free the bowl. The cause of this problem may be explained in the following review I just read on an internet blog:

    It's still a great mixer but I was disappointed as the quality control is not what it used to be...apparently when they were making the bowl there was some flaw in machining the bottom threads of the bowl that screws into the base plate. Everytime I've used it, the only way to keep the bowl from becoming so tightly jammed into the base plate that it impossible for me to remove the bowl myself. I had never had this problem before and then a friend who had to help me remove the bowl pointed out that the threads on either the bowl or the base plate were defective.

    UPDATE: I called KitchenAid Customer Service and they promptly sent a replacement for the bottom plate...glad I bought KitchenAid because while there was a mistake in machining this item they were really "on the ball" in terms of getting it fixed. Works GREAT now.

    Unable to resist the yellow KitchenAid mixer because it matches my new cabinets, I bought the Artisan model. In over 48 years of marriage, I have enjoyed 3 other KitchenAids, all with bowls that lift. Never have I had a problem with a KitchenAid - until now. The bowl either gets stuck or proves difficult to remove. A new base has not helped. The suggestion to place ice cubes in the bowl makes little sense since the idea is to be able to remove the contents of the bowl. Do we really need to keep a hammer in our utensil drawer? Isn't the idea of these appliances to simplify the preparation of our meals?

    When my bowl became totally jammed, I went right to the big guns and sprayed a little WD40 at the base/bowl juncture and waited a few minutes. Popped right out!

I found a solution at kitchenaid.com. It says the bowl locks in the same direction as the rotating mixer moves, so slap the bowl with your hand a few times in the opposite direction, and then take vegetable oil and using a cotton swab line the groove of the bowl. Let it soak a bit, and then slap the bowl again and push it hard counterclockwise.

I sprayed nonstick spray around the base, left it for a couple minutes, then the bowl came off very easily.

Try this solution I've read somewhere online. It worked for me, I hope it does for you too.

Put ice cubes in the mixing bowl. The cold will make the bowl contract a bit. Then with your palm, tap the underside of the bowl (in a clockwise direction) a couple of times to help dislodge it.

I used olive oil on the base (between the bowl and the machine) and took a hammer and gently tapped it on the bottom of the handle counterclockwise. It didn't dent the handle and the bowl pops right out.

I used for 1st time. My cookie dough turned black. Also now have large bump up in middle of bowl.


Take it back to the shop, it sounds like head height adjustment is incorrect from new. I hope you didn't tighten a screw by the inside of the hinge that looked loose. that's your head height adjustment. There is a cone shape at the bottom of the bowl if that's what you think is the bump.

I own the 6 QT Stand mixer. Is there a Is there a 4 or 5 qt bowl that works with this mixer?


Kitchenaid does not make a 4 or 5 quart bowl that would fit your 6 quart mixer, but other 3rd party companies do!
You may be in luck.
I haven't seen this bowl in person, but it apparently will fit your 6qt mixer. Here is a link to a page selling the mentioned attachment. It comes in a set, with appropriate wire-whip attachments:

The screw underneath the head of my kitchen aid mixer is tight, but the head is still wobbling. It isn't a beater adjustment--I already tried that. The head of the mixer is tilted forward a bit--in


When you have the head lifted up the screw you can see in there from the front in the middle by the hinge is the head height adjuster. You need to set the height correctly now so that FLAT PADDLE just clears the bowl. Unscrew it anti clockwise to raise the head. Once that is done turn the machine upside down on a towel and check that the locking screw on the hinge pin is tight, it\'s right up inside the pedestal.

The model number seems to be valid-but given the age of the unit few parts are readily available. You might want to try eBay or a used appliance store (or even Goodwill) to find a donor machine.

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.
Thank you,

I just got a new Kitcheaid Artisan 5 qt stand mixer. i can't get the bowl off of the stand. seems like its too tight, and i can't budge it. is there something i can do?!?!?


These bowls can tighten during mixing. One solution is to fill it with ice while trying to unscrew it. Soaking the base with soap is another solution. In the worst case, the bowl and the cap it fits in are replaceable.

I have had to use a homemade strap wrench on others. Be careful not to warp the bowl out of round, or it will be un-usable.

KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer - Tilt is Tilting too Much & hits the bowl!


This may have a simple solution: This 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.
