20 Most Recent KitchenAid Kitchen Aid KP26M1X 6 Quart Professional 600 Series Mixer Questions & Answers


You have not supplied a model number and the bowl lift models are not all the same. A couple of items you could check, make sure that the bowl retaining clip that engages with the dimple on the pedestal side of the bowl is not broken. Make sure any bolts/screws holding the pedestal to the base or the pedestal to the motor are tight. Even if you supply a model number I can't think of anything else to look at unless the handle is not lifting the bowl up tight enough. I think on some models the arm holds the carrier up with some pressure which would help stop the wobbles.

Kitchenaid does not make a 4 or 5 quart bowl that would fit your 6 quart mixer, but other 3rd party companies do!
You may be in luck.
I haven't seen this bowl in person, but it apparently will fit your 6qt mixer. Here is a link to a page selling the mentioned attachment. It comes in a set, with appropriate wire-whip attachments:

It needs new brushes on the motor. You can giving a sharp slap with your hand when it is switched on and running.

Yes and isn't that the dumbest design for something like that. 3 screws when older models had 4 and no locating pegs where older models had 2. Great progress Kitchen Aid.

Make sure that the carbon brushes are free moving in the holders under the black caps, one on each side. Note that the brushes are "keyed" so that they will only fit and work one way. There is a blocker at the bottom of the brush holder that is to be lined up with the corner of the carbon brush that's been shaved off. Use a torch and remember to unplug the power before you start. Next thing to look at are the wires and switch contacts underneath the back cover.

Check that you have put the carbon brushes in correctly, they are "keyed" on one corner so will only work one way. Look in the hole with a torch to see the blocking corner in the bottom.

That sounds like you have broken a shear pin. These pins are through a spindle and shear off if too much load is put on the drive train. There is enough grip to turn the beater under no load, but the spindle or gear spins under load. look for a small silver pin through one of the drive cogs.

Without knowing which model mixer you have I cannot be specific as there are 5qt models with very different motors. Parts are available and the mixer can be fixed. Doing it yourself makes it much more affordable.

Service Manuals covering the two types can be found at:
