Question about KitchenAid Food Mixers

1 Answer

When I am mixing something in this mixer the top seems to move around on speed 2 and up. When nothing is in the mixer it seems to run fine on any speed. I'm just wondering if this is normal for the mixers to do.

When itry to make bread dough in the mixer, the bowl locking mechanism doesnt work properly and the bowl moves and top of mixer jumps around how can i fix this


You need to make sure that the hinge pin is tight, turn machine completely upside down and tighten the slotted screw up inside the pedestal. If that doesn't fix it you will need to check that the locking lever is properly engaging in the slot. You may need to "SLIGHTLY" file the slot in the pedestal that the lever engages into. If you go mad with the file you could wreck the slot.

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 was given a Kitchen Aid 45SS mixer that is over 20 years old but never used. Is there oiling or other maintenance procedure I shoild perform before using? Thanks. Chuck Volkema


I read thru the owners manual for this unit and there is no recommendations for internal service. no reference to lubrication except for keeping the outside free from flour caking up on the moving parts. I have one of these and have seen the inside, they are built like tanks, you should be fine. i would recommend letting it run for a while on low speed to speed the lube around the internal parts, nothing more should be needed. Just make sure it doesnt sound as if the motor is laboring on low speed, this would indicate that internal lube is necessary. I think it will be fine...Worm1855

My kitchenaid mixer speed control is locked in the off position and wont move. It was working 2 min earlier when it was turned off from a prior mix.


You can try moving the lever slightly up or down while moving it forward to see if this will free it it or make a difference. Otherwise, the spring inside may have snapped or the speedlink cam may have came loose or broke. Either one will require the top end assembly to be removed to replace these parts.

KitchenAid wobbles when mixing


The "wobbling" 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.

Also, leaking of oil in a stand mixer is not necessarily indicative of a large problem.

Kitchenaid stand mixers are overpacked with oil to last the lifetime of the motor. If the motor sits idle for some time (is not used), the oil may begin to drip from the gears and settle. Oil leakage may primarily be seen from around the beater shaft or planetary action.

A stand mixer can lose up to a 1/4 cup of oil before it needs to be serviced.

It is recommended to run the mixer on speed 10 for 2 minutes in order to redistribute oil back into the motor. In order to prevent future occurences, this is recommended to be done every 3 weeks if mixer is not being used.

Blakeslee CC-30 Planetary Mixer & dough hook not mixing correctly


it sounds like you may have a sheared key on one of the shafts.with no product in the mixer will it run in any other speeds?when mixing pizza dough you should only use 1st gear.if it does run in other speeds you have a sheared key or broken shaft,if it doesnt run in any speeds drop the planetary and check the key on that shaft.

Speed of mixer


does the motor still run or does it slowly start to get less loud? or is the beater assembly that dosnt work? two different issues. if the motor runs but dosnt beat then its the planitary gears that are ground out and need replacing. if the motor slowly dies out then you need to replace the motor.
