Top 20 KitchenAid KSM90 Ultra Power Series Stand Mixer - Page 3 Questions & Answers


Wipe the oil up and use it. The machine has no oil in it, the grease is degrading and the oil is coming from there. It will be fine, next time it needs work done on it have them change the grease in the gearbox.

It will go back in, you just need to line it up properly. I hold the headlock in the unlock position while doing it.

Fuse gear inside the gearbox is most likely culprit.

Hello Heather,

Either the grooves on the bowl lock plate are worn out, or the grooves on the actual bowl are worn out. I would start with replacing the bowl lock plate. Here is a link to the part: KitchenAid Mixer Bowl Lock Plate 4163032

This part is really easy to replace, it is held into place with three screws, remove those screws (make sure to hang onto those you will need them to re-install the new part). then you should be able to pop the old plate out. To install the new plate like up the screw holes, and press into place, sometimes you need to lightly tap it into place with a rubber mallet as it is suppose to be a very tight fit.

Once that has been replaced your bowl should lock into place tightly. However there is always a chance that the bowl has been worn down and may need to be replaced. Here is a link to the 4.5 Quart bowl: KitchenAid 4 5 Quart Stainless Steel Bowl

See what the Manual Says is my advice. Good Luck

you probrobly have a gear inside missing some teeth, so the slower you go the more you can hear the grinding, i would un plug it and take the housing off and check the gearbox, maybe the intermediate gear is going bad.

If you have already fixed the problem then great and I'm sorry that i didn't see it sooner. If you have not then do this first. BTW if you are under warranty this WILL NOT VOID the warranty.

Solution 1; There is a silver ring around the front of the mixer that you attach your beater or whip to. Take a nonmetalic hammer and a screw driver, place the screwdriver on the top edge of the ring and tap LIGHTLY on the screwdriver. The ring will fall off after a couple taps. DO NOT hit it hard, you can scratch the finish all the way down to the raw Zinc frame and you can knock the ring out of round. The ring is only held on by pressure so if you knock the ring out of round it will not stay on anymore. Onward and upward...turn the mixer upside down (On a Towel or you will scratch the finish) and you will see five screws that are now exposed tighten them down again. They won't turn much so don't worry it only requires about a 16th. of a turn. What you have just done is to tighten up the two parts of the mixer and apply pressure to the gasket / seal that hold the gear head grease in. While you have the mixer in this position (you have probably figured it out by now that someone else is holding the mixer upright while your working on it) you will find 4 more screws that attach to the mixer toward the rear. Give them a little tighten turn also. Now take the silver ring and place it back where you took it off from and tap it back into place. This ring is held in place by pressure only. If you find that the ring is not going on not to worry. You can give it a good whack as long as you hit straight down. If you knock it sideways you can knock the ring out of round and then it will never stay up again. So be careful with the hammer. If you look closely at the inside of the ring you will see what may be called "Stretch Marks" from where the ring was originally move it past those marks and tap it on. going back to the original stretch marks does not always work and the ring falls of so choose a new position for putting the ring back on.


Solution 2 THIS WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY. If you proceed with this step and your mixer is under warranty you will void the remaining time on your warranty and you will be doing a basic tear down of your mixer. So first you need to order two parts, a gasket and some food safe grease. do a search for kitchenaid grease and kitchenaid gasket and you will find both at several sites including Amazon, so check pricing and shipping as both vary widely between sites. The next thing to do is go to kitchenaid.com and download a parts list for your mixer by clicking on the support tab and then click on download manuals and user guides. This will give you a working diagram of your mixer so that you can follow along with your work. The next thing to do is go out on the internet and search for a video that is out there that will walk you through it step by step. Change grease in kitchenaid mixer will take you there. To do a write up step by step would take a long time and a lot of space. It is basically eleven separate steps of dissassembly to get to the gear case grease then you have to clean out the old and re-pack with new grease and put it all back together. during the process you can knock your mixer out of "Speed" and then you have to re- tune the mixer speed. again, not hard but another step to do and there is a video on the internet for that too. You can check with Kitchenaid Customer Service and they will put you on to the nearest Factory authorized sevice center, If you are close you can drop it off if it is far away you will have to ship. the mixer weighs 25-30 pounds and will cost $25-30 dollars to ship. they will get return shipping. the cost of the re-pack also varies by state and location. In Orlando Florida it costs $110.00 to have it done plus shipping. In Miami if you haggle you can get it for $90.00 and if you don't have to ship at all it will be less. the job is not hard but it will require your time (2 Hours for the novice) and lots of patience and a work area that you don't mind getting dirty. DO NOT do this on your wife's kitchen table she WILL shoot you when the grease gets all over the place. good luck.

The KSM90 is very similar to the 5-qt. tilt-head Artisan Stand Mixer.
You need to adjust the mixer speeds. Obtain a copy of the KSM90 Repair Part List from Kitchenaid.com. Remove the screw holding the End Cover and locate the three screws from the Control Plate. All three (2 top left and right, and 1 bottom) must all be adjusted. 1. Loosen the lock nuts enough & Turn the 2 top screws clockwise until they cannot be turned
anymore. Leave the bottom screw alone for now.
2. Use a dab of white paint or paper whiteout to mark the positions of the Phillips screws.
3. Plug in your mixer and Set the speed selector to "Stir".
4. Turn each top screw One full turn couterclockwise (alternating between Left and Right)
Keep making one full turn at the time (for both left and right) until the motor starts running.
5. Put your hand near the Agitator shaft and allow it to brush your finger slightly. Use your
watch or clock and start counting the number of times the shaft touches your finger in
60 seconds. The correct count should be 60 RPM (Rounds Per Minute). If it is less
or more than 60, give each screw 1/4 turn counterclockwise or clockwise and start counting
again. Now tighten both lock nuts.
6. Set the speed selector to "6" and turn the bottom screw either clockwise or counterclockwise
to achieve a speed of 180 RPM.

For your reference, the planetary RPM's for the 5-qt. tilt-head Artisan Stand Mixer are as follows:
Stir speed - 60
Speed 2 - 95
Speed 4 - 135
Speed 6 - 180
Speed 8 - 225
Speed 10 - 280

Make sure your Beater can slip in and out of the Beater Shaft
easily. Do not force the beater onto the Shaft if the shaft is bent.
If it cannot be removed easily by hand, use a soft rubber mallet
(not a steel hammer) to slightly tap the beater so it can be moved
up and down the shaft or from side to side. Then you can easily
turn the beater left and remove it from the shaft.

From Kitchenaid Manual:
To Attach Flat Beater, Wire Whip, or Dough Hook
1. Turn speed control to OFF.
2. Unplug stand mixer or disconnect power.
3. Tilt motor head back.
4. Slip beater onto beater shaft and press upward
as far as possible.
5. Turn beater to right, hooking beater over pin on shaft.
6. Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.

It sounds like the Worm Gear is going out. The faster the motor runs,
the more damages the Center Gear is grinding away the teeth of the
Worm Gear. Things start to slow down, and eventually they will come
to a halt. It's time to replace the Worm Gear. Also make sure to use
new fresh Kitchenaid Food Grade Grease with the new replacement.

Constant pushing of the beater onto the Agitator shaft (40) can cause
it to be pushed in too far into the Planetary (33). With the beater in place,
use a rubber mallet to slightly tap the edges of the beater and push the
shaft out until you can see the retaining clip.
Now you have enough clearance on the shaft to push the beater upward
and twist it to remove it.
