Check with Sunbeam. The beaters may have to be replaced.

Hi. Kitchenaid's warranty is 1 year.

Most likely, the plastic transmission housing has failed, causing damage to the working parts inside your mixer. Take it to a local repair place and have them work up a quote to repair it. It will take at least a month to get the parts.

Try placing some "braces" rubber bands around the shafts of the beaters. This should tighten the hold of the shaft with the mixer and keep them more straight.

Beater is stuck


I had this happen on my Kitchen Aid mixer. There is probably a build up of dough/cake mix etc inside the hole where the beater fits into. Fill a mixing bowl or a jug deep enough to fit over beater with very hot or boiling water. Immerse the stuck beater in the water up to where it connects in to the mixer and hold for about minute. Once the hot water has melted the build up you should be able to remove the beater. Hopefully this may work on your brand of mixer.

Kitchenaid 525 stopped working while mixing cookie dough


Let it completely cool and then start again. It overheated because your speed was set too low for the heaviness of the dough. I have burned up three kitchenaid stand mixers so far making bread. go up one setting at least; if it is straining, go up another.

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.

I can't get the tilt release to release to raise the mixer . I have a batch of cookie dough in the bowl and I am unable to raise the mixer


Try running the mixer for a few seconds to clear anything out from under the beaters, like a chocolate chip. You can also try pushing down on the beater end of the mixer, press the button and lift.

The beaters won't go around. The motor is running


I can't solve this problem, but mine just died doing the very same thing. Motor is running, the revolving base is turning, and the beaters are just sitting there. Ruined an entire batch of divinity!

Beater rubbing bottom of bowl


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.

Kitchenaid stopped working Modle KSM150PSER


Hi Phyllis. Unplug the mixer, lay it down on one side and look for the pin that holds the planetary shaft in place next to (where you attach beater). The pin may have worked itself loose. If this pin is not all the way through it's opening, the shaft will not turn the planetary unit. Hopefully the pin did not come all the way out and you can tap it back in. If the pin is gone, It's in one of your cookies and hopfully you'll find it before anybody else does. Hope this helps. Ricardok45.

i don't mean to be too basic, but have you used the slider at the mixer base that moves the bowl so the beater can be at the bowl edge or towards the middle? It works on ours, it's the black pad or button there at the front of the base, just push down and slide it. Maybe they made a cheaper model with no sliding base.
