    KitchenAid stopped producing K5A models around 1977, succeeded by K5SS.

Year of manufacture


  • The K5SS was manufactured from 1978 to sometime in the 1980s (don't know if it made it into the 90s). Hobart sold its Kitchenaid division to Whirpool in 1982. If yior mixer has the Hobart logo on it then it was from 1978 to 1981 9 or 2. If it is identified only as Kitchenaid then it was made after 1981.

Where do you find the serial number for a 5 quart glas bowl for the Artisan mixer


The serial number for all KitchenAid mixers is located under the base of the mixer. You will need to carefully tilt the mixer over, and underneath the mixer you will find a label with the model number and serial number.

I JUST WANT TO KNOW THE YEAR THAT MY KENWOOD MIXER MODEL NO.A701A WAS PRODUCED, I HAVE HAD IT FROM NEW.


Hi DOREEN. Generally speaking your mixer was probably manufactured anywhere between 30-120 days prior to its purchase. Also as a rule, the smaller the appliance, the less time between manufacture date and sell date.
Most small kitchen appliance manufacturers don’t like to keep stock in warehouses and similarly, retailers would also prefer not to warehouse excessive stock so they usually order what the need and have it delivered JIT (just in time) to be placed on the shelves for purchase.
Now if you wish to peel the onion back further, if you have a serial number for your mixer and you’ve registered it, if you contact Kenwood directly at: http://www.kenwoodworld.com/en-int/Customer-Service/, they should be able to provide you the exact date and time (production run) your mixer was made. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

From day one my new kitchenAid mixer shakes all over the counter. Is there an adjustment to correct the shaking?


The model 32685 is not a correct model, it is most likely a serial number It can be found usually on the underside of the unit. Usually letters followed by numbers. However there is no adjustment unfortunately, It could be a manufacture defect possibly. Or maybe damaged during the original shipping. The only thing that could be done to correct this is by replacing the base or depending on the age of it, call Whirlpool warranty and see if they can cover it for you. Hope this helps

Thanks

Year manufactored


If you call your nearest Hobart Parts place they can tell you. If they refuse this simple request, log on to www.hobartservice.com and look in the discontinued products menu, select Food Machines then Mixers and sift through the files until you find the documentation for serial numbers/dates. The lists are not complete and stop in the late 1980's. If you're lucky, you can find out which plant manufactured it, as the first two digits of the serial number indicate where it was built. The serial numbers are not in code, so it's relatively easy to get a date if you do the math. While you're there, download the manuals for parts and operation. You won't find the service manuals..."Top Secret"! Good Luck! Ricardok45.

Hobart A-200 serial # ?


Hi. Your mixer was manufactured in 1967. If you plan on keeping it, take the outer cover off, gently remove the two metal dust caps with a small screwdriver and look into each opening with a good flashlight to determine the quality and amount of grease in the trans. case.

Ideally the grease should almost fill the space with no oil visible. If you need to look further, I suggest that you open up the transmission cover, to determine the condition of the grease that lubricates the transmission. If you find that oil is seperating from the grease. you would do well to remove all of the oil and old grease and replace it with either Shell Darina EP-2, or Chevron FM ALC EP-2 grease. It's a messy job, but it will add years of life to your mixer.

Check the planetary seal, remove, clean and regrease the planetary gearing. With a mixer of this age, you never know if it has ever been serviced since it's manufacture or not. The grease must totaly encapsulate the trans. gears. As the grease breaks down it's level lowers and it leaves some of the upper gears without lubrication, and will result in preventable wear.

Good luck! If you found this solution helpful, please rate it. ricardok45
