You will find a sliding lever on the side opposite the speed control. Pushing it toward the rear will unlock the head and allow it to be lifted.

If this does not work, you will need the Service Manual which shows the locking mechanism's action:

How do you tilt the back up on the k45 kitchen stand mixer?


To raise the head you move the locking lever back & lift the front of the motor unit up. To lower it you also move the locking lever to the back and then lower the head and release or push the locking lever forward to lock the head down while using it.

What model kitchenaid was made in december of 1973?


Is the brushed band around the head missing or worn off? The model is on that band. If it worn or missing in order to correctly answer your question I need more information. Is your mixer a tilt head or a bowl lift variety? Did you look on the bottom of the base for a serial number? Some models had them there. Can you describe the ceramic piece a little better? Many models shard the same internal parts and it might not be too difficult to locate that part.

KitchenAid K45 (not solid state)


You have a Hobart K45 that was produced up to 1978 when the SS model was started. You will have to search on the internet to find the capacitor or one of equal value, Also try eBay. You will need the numbers of the capacitor to do your search, which means taking the machine apart. Several models and manufacturers were used during the production of the K45 as it was made from 1962 to 1978, so the values of the capacitor are the same but the maker and size would or might be different. I have found them as rectangles and cylindrical in shape. The other option is to find another machine at a yard sale and keep it for parts. You might also take the capacitor to a real electronics shop for help in locating a replacement, (Radio Shack will not be able to help) You need a shop that deals with the electronics of machines. like a ham radio or a cb shop that does modifications or the like. I know this sounds daunting but the search and repair will be rewarding as when you are finished and the machine is back up and running you can say "I did that". Also as long as you have the machine torn down I would replace the power cord your re-assembly will be easier to complete. Hope this helped.

Kitchenaid K45 Mixer will only run at one speed, fast


is it a K45 or a K45SS? If it is a K45 you will have to replace the filters inside and probably the speed control plate, if it is a K45SS then you need a new phase control board. The K45 is pre 1978 and the K45SS is post 1978. Your information is correct on pre 1978 K45 models that the capacitor is bad, but it might be cheaper to go garage sale hunting and find a second machine as the parts are no longer made and having spares on hand may be a significant advantage in the future, also there are a great many of the K45SS parts that will also repair the K45 mixer so it may not be a practical solution. Watch ebay regularly for K45 parts, they come up every couple of months. On the parts diagram also look for the K5 diagram as it is identical to the K45, one is a 5 quart mixer and the other one is 4.5 quart, same parts same motor same everything.

Which is the better mixer of these old models: K5A K5-A or K45 SS and what is the difference? KITCHENAID HOBART K5A K5-A 300 WATT MIXER and the KitchenAid Hobart Vintage K45 250 WATT. Thank you


Hello ajlina,

All of these are great home use units, all the attachments are interchangeable between these. The difference between these mixers is the K5 is a 5 quart mixer and the K45 is a 4.5 quart mixer. As I own both of them they are great in the kitchen and have the same durability.

Have any more questions please post to this thread and I will be happy to assist. Thank you for using FixYa.

I took a KitchenAid K45 apart to clean (made in


What everyone is forgetting or they just don't know is that...The K45 introduced by Hobart in 1962 and was replaced in 1978 by the K45SS are two completely different machines. With completely different wiring systems. The K45 is wired together with wire nuts and the K45SS used connectors on the Speed control switch. All of the websites posted above are for the K45SS (Stands for Solid State) The manual for he K45SS is easy to get from Kitchenaid as the mixer electronics did not change from it's introduction in 1978 to 1986 when Hobart sold the Kitchenaid division to Whirlpool. The K45 on the other hand is a product and property of Hobart NOT Whirlpool or the Kitchenaid division of Whirlpool. The K45 Manual ... well I just can't find one! They way wires are routed is totally different in the K45 from the K45SS so the diagram in the K45SS manual does not help. Also the brushes in the K45 were square not camphor-ed like they are in the K45SS so there is no right or wrong way to insert the brushes in a K45. Whereas; in the K45SS there are four ways to insert the brushes in their holder and three of them are wrong. The K45SS brushes go into a completely different brush holder than the K45. The K45SS is the same today in 2012 as it was in 1978. The K45 is the same only from 1962 when Hobart introduced it to 1978 when it was replaced with the new Solid State model. prior to 1962 it was the K4-A model and it was different entirely. So if the people asking for help say their mixer is a K45 we should be asking for clarification as to a K45 or a K45SS.
