Question about KitchenAid KITCHEN AID 5 Quart Artisan Series Stand Mixer

1 Answer

Kitchen aid mixer

The attachments are hitting the bowl - it seems like the motor/head is sprung..........leans too far down. We've tried to adjust the motor arm setting but can't find out what to adjust to keep it from tipping too far down. The only thing the kind of helps is to put a folded piece of cardboard underneath the hinge as the motor tips forward. But there's got to be some kind of adjustment somewhere. In the meantime the attachment's vinyl coating have all rubbed off and the bowl is getting scrapped up. Please let me know what we can do or if an authorized repair place can fix this. Thanks, Linda Sessions

Tilt the head back and remove your cardboard shim. You should see a screw head. Turning this screw adjusts the beater/bowl clearence.

SOURCE: kitchen aid mixer leans forward

Is this for a "tilt neck model? If so, the manual suggests that there is a small screw in between the base stand and the "neck" of the mixer. You should be able to screw it in or out to adjust it. Good luck!

KitchenAid stand mixer KSM150 was run without locking down the motor housing. Now the motor head "wobbles" when the mixer is operating. I've tried adjusting the screw located under the head but it...

The screw under the head is for adjusting the head height for when the standard paddle and bowl are being used. First tip the whole machine upside down and tighten the hinge pin screw right up inside the pedestal post. Next reset the head height with flat paddle. Screw in is head down, screw out is head up. You want the paddle to just stop tinging the bowl on high speed.

Kitchen Aid stand mixer head doesn't lock down and wobbles

You need to do a couple of strokes with a rat tail file at a 30 degree angle at the top of the slot the head lock engages into. You will need to remove the hinge pin to do this. A Kitchen Aid agent will have done plenty of then so it won't cost an arm and a leg to get it sorted.

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.

Kitchen aid mixer leans forward too far, causing the mixing attachments to rub on the bottom of the bowl instead of rotating just above the bottom of the bowl. how do i fix it?

There are 2 possibilities, the attachments are worn out where they go on the shaft, simply replacing them could fix it, the other is the shaft is worn out inside the planetary ( where it spins), if it moves allot, 1/8 " or more from side to side, the housing is probably worn, and the planetary needs to be replaced, easy job, don't know cost, a new mixer may be in order.

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.

Kitchen aid tilthead mixer will not lock down

The solution for both of these is a large screw that sits at the base of the head where the head and the base meet - you'll see it when you tilt the head up. This screw should not be all the way in. You can adjust how low the head goes- in the case of your blades hitting the bowl you'll want to let the screw out a bit; in the case of the locking, you'll want to screw it in a bit more.
