Paddle keeps hitting the bottom of the bowl
It will be to do with the hinge pin, the head lock or the head height adjustment. Make sure that the hing pin is held tight in place with the grub screw in the middle accessed only when the mixer & stand are upside down. Then make sure that the head height is correctly set with the adjustment accessed from the front when the head is raised. You can see the adjustment screw in the middle of the hinge when you have raised the head. In to lower the head and out to raise the head. The flat paddle needs to just stop tinging on the bowl when the motor is operating and the head is down.
Can't remove beater from mixer...
I took the advice from: http://forum.kitchenaid.com/forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=6356
I put a wash cloth in a pot of boiling water and used tongs to wrap it around the beater shaft while the mixer was resting on its side. When the wash cloth was not too hot to touch, I put it back in the boiling water and did it again. I was then able to easily remove the beater.
I have a problem with my kitchenaid mixer (latest
The Service Manual covering mixers with the control plate can be downloaded at:
Things to consider:
The brushes have a chamfer on one edge and must be oriented so that the chamfer can pass a small stop in one corner of the brush sleeve.
Are all the wires to the control board connected correctly? The board is marked for the wires colors.
There are instructions in the manual for measuring the stator coils to find out if they are OK or not.
Checking out the armature is another whole thing and you can get information on-line about this (try searching "armature testing"). I really hope that you don't need to go this far.
Kitchen aid mixer
Tilt the head back and remove your cardboard shim. You should see a screw head. Turning this screw adjusts the beater/bowl clearence.
My kitchen aid stand mixer startnig making noise and wobbling. I noticed that the pin attaching the top to the base has been pushed out halfway and I can't push it back. Any solutions?
Remove the bowl, turn it upside down on a towel, look up inside the pedestal. Right in the middle where the hinge pin goes through there is a screw, unscrew it a little, push the hinge pin back to where it belongs and then tighten the screw up tight. Turn mixer up the right way, raise head up, fit bowl & flat paddle. Lower head & turn machine on low, listen for paddle tinging on bowl, if it is touching turn off and raise the head. Look into hinge area from the front, that screw is the head height adjustment. Clockwise to lower paddle in bowl, anti clockwise to raise. You want to lower it until you hear the paddle tinging on the bowl & then raise it enough to clear without tinging. You don't wind the screw in & out huge amounts, 1/4 to 1/2 a turn at a time is plenty.
How to pull out the motor apart on a model 3b because I can not pull the rest of the brush that's still inside mixer
You will need to replace the brushes once you get the stuck one out. You want to avoid pulling the motor apart if you can, I carefully drill down through the middle of the brush. Note CAREFULLY. You do not want to drill into the commutator that the brushes run against when the motor is running. Once you have your hole drilled you can try and extract it with a hooked pick type tool or with a vacuum cleaner sucking away at the outside you can break it up and it will come out in many pieces. Once you have it out clean up the brush holder with a small flat file and check that the new brush slides in and out freely. When filing be careful not to mark the commutator just beyond the inner end of the brush holder. Brushes are keyed and will only fit one way, look in the hole with a torch to see the key on one corner.
Does it has an internal fuse
I am not sure, often there is an internal thermal protector but easiest would be to contact the manufacturer or a serfvice center and ask the question.
Kitchen aid model kb25gixob will not turn on.any suggestions?
Put an ohmmeter across the two pins on the plug, on the mixer,,not the earth one.and turn the switch on.you should get a reading,plus it will change as you turn the switch to different settings.if no reading,suspect broken wire in plug,or mixer windings burnt out.try in a different socket
Blade is stuck in shaft of kitchen aid
Get some CRC around the shaft and into the beater hole and wriggle it about until it comes free. Rasp the build up in the beater hole out with a round file and clean up the shaft on the mixer. Remember you are cleaning out the hole not trying to make it bigger than it was. In my experience it is a build up of flour in there bonding itself to the hole in the aluminium beater.
My mixer won't start
Look for any broken wires on the speed control plate under the back cover. Check the carbon brushes under the side caps. Brushes only go in one way so be careful.
