Citrus juicer I tried to use the citrus juicer attachment on my machine but found that there seems to be a part missing between the mixer and the juicer (the part that would attach the juicer to the mixer). Can you help?

Kitchenaid mixer makes a clattering sound at low speeds - seems to be coming from the governor or the control plate - any ideas, is this a common problem and how should I approach it?


Did it start clattering before or after it was re-greased? The K5ss by Hobart is an excellent mixer and there is no reason why it can't go on for a bunch more years. First you can get clattering if the brushes are less than 5/16th inch long, But that is not usual.

I would think that the rear bearing which is in the center at the rear may be more your problem, That bearing is behind the speed control switch and behind the governor (don't discount the governor being the problem) and is attached by two 3/8th nuts and slides onto the two guide slides that hold the motor parts in place. What i have found over the years is that 1.) the studs can bend (happens but not often) 2.) the bearing which is in the center of the big aluminum housing, (Called rear bearing assembly) moves over the years and causes humming and clattering.
So what to do about it? Loosen the two nuts a turn or two (do not remove) look at the top of the the bearing assembly and you will see a metal tab (used to attach the rear cover) (make sure the bowl and beaters are not attached to the machine) now plug it in and turn it to stir speed or number 2 position, put your finger on top of the tab and press down while the mixer is running, you should hear a change in pitch, and it should effect the clattering noise, (It will go up or down, or you may hear a new noise a light humming) (The humming is caused by the armature no longer in the center of the motor field and getting to close to the stator of the motor while it is operating, when it is out of center the developed magnetic field that causes the armature to turn gives off the humming noise because it is out of center or balance) if you notice that the clattering gets louder or softer by pushing down or pulling up you have to play with it to find the sweet spot, when you find it tighten the two nuts down just enough to hold it in place and no more. It takes a while and you wont hurt the machine but never go above speed two while doing this. If that fixes the problem you may have to do it more than once as the machine continues to age or if you move the machine around a lot. the real problem is the armature needs replacing (if this is the problem). Next you may have the machine timed wrong and that has to do with the speed control switch entirely, let us know what you find if these are not the problems we have a ways to go but they are the usual culprits with your symtom.

I have a Kitchenaid 550 watt 6 qt. stand mixer model #KB26GIXER. I tried to use it this morning and couldn't get the beater blade to lock in place. Isn't there supposed to be a spring and washer...


There is only one pin on the beater shaft to hold the beater in place.
There is no spring or washer on the shaft.

To Attach Flat Beater,Wire Whip, or Spiral Dough Hook, simply
1. Slip flat beater on beater shaft.

2. Turn beater to right, hooking beater over the pin on shaft.

The machine seems loose and it rocks. Also, the pasta attachment (meat grinder) will not lock in. Can I adjust where the grind worm goes in?


Hello Darlenescott,

About the machine rocks, the whole machine rocks or just the Head? If it is just the Head you may want to check to see if the set screw that holds the lock in place is still there or lose. The scress is located on the right side of the machine if you are looking straight at it in use. It is at the bottom of the head close to where the head attaches to the pedistool. If it is missing post back to this discussion and I will find the part # and place that you can purchase the part.

The second issue, the pasta attachment is not locking in properly. There is no way to ajust how the pasta attachment fits. I would try and return the attachment and exchange it for another as they are mass produced and may not have got the shaft down to the proper tolerances to fit.

I hope this helped and please post any other questions you have to this thread.

Thank you for choosinf FIxYa for your solution.

I recently acquired a KitchenAid/Hobart Model 4C stand mixer for free. It seems to work okay but I?m in need of a flat beater, dough hook and wire whip as it came with only the juicer attachment. Do you...


A number of attachments were available for the 4C, such as a juicer, a meat grinder, etc., all of which ran off the PTO on the front of the housing.  The only beater, however, was the wire one.  No dough hook was ever made.  I have been told that the motor didn't have the necessary power to run a dough hook.

I need instructions to use my new kitchen aid attachment


Hi. Basically all you really need to know is to start the machine at a slow speed, begin shredding, increase speed to a point where the machine is not labouring. Next time you use that attachment, set it for that speed. Different attachments and the foods they process load different stresses on the mixer. Always use a speed that is one step above/below the labouring sounds. Kitchenaid doesn't see fit to publish these instructions online as they do their other manuals. Another missed opportunity by Kitchenaid. You might want to check out the kitchenaid forum. one of these people just might have it in digital form. Good luck! ricardok45
