SOURCE: Kitchenaid mixer makes a clanging noise

Hi. If your mixer is under warranty, call Kitchenaid. They are very good at replacing mixers under warranty.

If you are out of warranty, this is where the fun begins, NOT!

Remove the silver band from around the top of mixer. Remove 4 screws that secure the top cover, remove cover and at the front top of the machine locate the transmission cover. Inspect this cover carefully for cracks. If you find cracks in it...You have just discovered Kitchenaid's dirty little secret. A cheap plastic transmission housing! The failure of this cheap part is the cause of all of the rest of the damage inside the mixer, which may include a destroyed worm gear and shaft, destroyed bearings and their seats. You're not alone. I estimate that thousands of these plastic parts have failed causing great damage to the rest of the mixer

Kitchenaid's replacement housing is made out of metal. If you feel up to the task of repairing the mixer yourself goto the Kitchenaid website and do a search for the parts catalog for your mixer model, these will assist you with disassembly, reassembly and parts ordering.

If you're not up to the task, take it to an authorized repair place once you have put the cover back on.
Even if you're out of warranty, you may be able to have Kitchenaid pay for the replacement parts, they did for my mixer. Be persistent with them and try to get to a manager with your complaint. This cheap piece of plastic has no business being installed on a high-priced machine.

If this solution has assisted you, please rate it. ricardok45

Pull the back off and there will be two screws at the top of the Speed Control Plate and a 3rd screw at the bottom. Tighten the top two screws down. bakerboy49203@yahoo.com. Let me know if it works.

SOURCE: my kitchenaid stand mixer arm wobbles when I turn

if the head wobbles on stand, flip mixer upside down, and tighten the pivot pin screw way deep down inside stand. you will need a long flat blade screwdriver. it's probably loose.

SOURCE: Kitchenaid stand mixer runs only on slow speed

The Kiichenaid mixer has a centrifugal speed governor. I suspect your is stuck. It will need to be disassembled, and inspected.

Kitchenaid mixer arm down too far


You really ought to be giving us a model number for correct information but if it is a tilt head model then raise the head all the way up and look from the front in to where the motor hinges on the pedestal. There will be a screw there right in the middle. You turn it anti clockwise to raise the beater up from the bottom of the bowl.

Use fresh Kitchenaid Food Grade Grease on all gears.

Caution: Do not use a screwdriver to pry out the Planetary Assembly.

first of all it is warrantied by Kitchenaid. Call them and describe the problem. they will send you a new mixer and a paid UPS return slip for the old one. If you want to fix it yourself:

look at item 18 on this diagram:

also check to see if any of the other parts are broken. bent or missing.

KitchenAid K5 Mixer Bowl Rocks Back & Forth


This may be explained with the bowl assembly. Being a bowl lift mixer, please follow the following steps to make sure the bowl is being secured before mixing:

There are the bowl-holding arms on the left and right hand side of the mixer. You will place the bowl on these arms, securing it onto the pegs.

Also, take your fingertips and press down firmly at the back of the bowl where it is resting against the base. You will hear an audible click as the bowl secures down into a spring latch mechanism on the stand mixer base, allowing the mixing bowl to sit flush and secure.

I can't get the bowl onto my KitchenAid Pro mixer


Hi. I'll give you the cheap/fast solution first. Get a 2-3 ft. section of metal pipe that will fit over the bent arm, gradually, incrementaly and slowly bend the arm out using the pipe. check it at each increment for fit and level.

Now for the more expensive/slow solution. Find the nearest Kitchenaid "approved" repair service store. You will then be looking at a replacement bowl support and the labour to repair it. Be prepared to wait for up to a month for Kitchenaid to fill the parts order. If you find that these solutions have assisted you, please rate them. Good luck! ricardok45
