Question about KitchenAid Food Mixers
It actually adjusts *backwards* compared to the instructions. The instructions say turn the screw clockwise to lower the bowl. Turning the screw on my mixer clockwise actually makes the beater hit the bowl harder.
SOURCE: the adjustment screw fell off
I know what you are talking about. That tiny screw in the KSM50 model to raise the beaters... there is one. I know what you mean, but I don't know how to tell you to fix it if it doesn't go back in easily. Find someone handy?

I had a similar problem with mine - the problem turned out to be that I hadn't clicked the bowl into place corectly. If you find the bowl is tilting forward slightly then you probably need to push it into the clip at the back.

From the sound of this issue I would have to say the adjustment screws are defective or stripped Normally inside the housing the screw acts like a clamp against the paddle shaft pinching it at the desired height of operation Because Kitchenaid makes alot of their housings from a die cast aluminum tin Mix its easy for the manufacturer to insert the screwed and strip threads causing this issue Replacement of the product at this point is your Only Option for safe Operation of any kitchen appliance.

Without looking at it myself I can' think what the problem would be but a cheating solution would be to undo the 4 screws that hold the pedestal to the motor housing and put 4 washers there between the pedestal and motor housing and replace the screws.I assume you mean the flat paddle beater because that's the only one to use to set the bowl height.
