Question about Kenwood KM400 / KM410 Chef Classic Stand Mixer

1 Answer

Mixer will not turn on.

I was making cookies last evening and the recipe included ingredients that filled the mixing bowl. All went well until the end when I had to add the 3 cups of chopped nuts, 24 oz,chocolate chips and 8 oz. grated chocolate. The motor stopped and will not start again even after allowing it to cool off overnight.

I just got my mixer a few weeks ago for Christmas. I have made cookies twice. My problem is that the bottom of the bowl doesn't get scraped. The first time, I ended up putting more flour in the dough...

Put the flat beater on and mount the bowl to the machine. Now look for the screw next to where the beater mounts on the head- this is the adjusting screw. Turn it counterclockwise to lower the beater, just a quarter of a turn, and then check where it's running in the bowl. Repeat as necessary. If you need to raise the beater, just turn the screw the other way.

After putting flower into mixing bowl large quanity of flower is ejected when mixer is turnon at low speed. Once it starts to mix then it's ok.

Firstly, I think you mean "flour".
Put in your ingredients. Cover the mixer, head and bowl, with a dishtowel. Turn on mixer to "stir" (or lowest speed). But! Mix only for 1 or 2 seconds. Repeat this, with bowl covered, until flour is mixed in enough not to fly out.
Happy baking!

We just purchased the custom kitchen aid stand mixer on a boxing day special. We used it tonight to make cookies and then could not remove the bowl from the base. We are going to try the icecubes. If this...

The bowl screws into the base and can get quite tight if the mixer has been turning thick dough or other mixes. We usually tap the handle on the bowl with the palm of our hand a few times and that generally frees it. The other posibility is that the bowl was put into the base slightly askew. This could be more of a problem as this can cause the base plate to get damaged. Usually though if this happens you would have noticed some bad noises almost instantly you turned the mixer on.

I have a Sunbeam Heritage Series Mixmaster, 350 Watts, just purchased yesterday. I used it to mix cake batter, cream butter, whip egg whites....the problem is that it doesn't blend the ingredients. The...

There should be a small lever on the base in front of and below the bowl. It will move to 2 positions. It sounds like you have it set for the small bowl but are using the large bowl. Press down on the lever and move it to the other side. If I'm right, that should correct the problem.

My Professional HD Kitchen Aid doesn't mix all of the ingriedienc

One thing many KitchenAid mixer owners complain about is that it's difficult to scrape the bowl while the mixer is running. Because the beater rotates around the inside of the bowl, and because the beater doesn't actually touch the bowl, you have to stop the mixer frequently to scrape the sides of the bowl to make sure all the ingredients are well incorporated.

Two companies have come up with fixes for that problem -- the BeaterBlade+ and the SideSwipe.

They are available for most KA mixers. Cook's Magazine tested both in January 2009 and liked the SideSwipe a tad more than the BeaterBlade because they thought it performed a little better on a particularly heavy cookie dough, but one reviewer on another forum commented that dough tends to bunch up on the SideSwipe's inner parts.

In any case, I have the BeaterBlade+, mainly because it was available from Amazon for $30, no tax, free shipping, and I didn't feel like driving around to find the other.

Both are made of very strong plastic and have silicone scrapers on the edges of the blades. The scrapers do touch the bowl and thus provide a constant scraping of the ingredients, assuring that everything gets mixed in. I've found that I rarely have to stop the mixer, except to make sure that the ingredients that cling to the beater itself are mixed in.

Loud and throws flour all over

Do you find the motor running too fast at the lowest setting? Then you need to bring it to someone to adjust the low speed setting. If you are preparing double batches you are over loading the mixer and/or using too fast a speed setting to mix. Don't try to double recipes just because the bowl can handle the volume, the motor cannot and will not last very long if stressed mixing dough frequently.

Bosch universal mixer

Sounds like the belt came off when you tried to mix the frosting while it was cold. Just too much of a load. It will have to be taken apart and the belt put back on.

Incomplete mixing

You need to raise the bowl just a little less than the thickness of the layer presently being left behind. Too much and the beaters will touch the bowl .
