Kitchen Aid K45 base flange needed

I need to replace the flange that screws into the base of a KitchenAid K45 stand mixer. It's worn, so that the bowl isn't held as securely as it should be. The flange is the part which is held in place on the base by three screws. Where can I get this part?

Hi NBSALE, I believe you are speaking of the Screw Cap Kit. Do you have your original Part Lists manual on-hand? If not you can download a PDF version from the KA website at: If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case use K45SSW, and select the file listed under Parts List (1), K45SSWH0.pdf (341.41 KB). Check to ensure it matches your mixer model.
Turn to page 3, titled: Base And Pedestal Unit, which provides an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer’s base and pedestal, along with all the parts. Find Illus. No. 2, Screw Cap Kit, Part # 4162529, which is the part that you want to replace.
As far as parts go, here are four potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com. Prices for the same part can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
Although you don’t need to get inside the mixer to make this repair, here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer that you might want to keep in your ‘toolbox’, should you have to delve inside your mixer in the future.

Between these three websites and their excellent pictures and descriptions and your Parts List manual, you should now be able replace any part to your KA mixer.
Good luck and have fun. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

How do you tilt the head back on this k45 model?


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:

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.

Food grade grease is what Kitchen Aid put into the gearbox originally. They do supply it as a spare part if you cannot find it as a non Kitchen Aid part.

When mixin bread dow the arm of the mixer moves loose


Lay the mixer on a towel and look up inside the base to the top of the neck. There's set screw up there. Tighten. If that doesn't work your shaft may be too worn and needs to be replaced.

Kitchen Aid Classic mixer


There are 2 possibilities, the attachments are worn out where they go on the shaft, simply replacing them could fix it, the other is the shaft is worn out inside the planetary ( where it spins), if it moves allot, 1/8 " or more from side to side, the housing is probably worn, and the planetary needs to be replaced, easy job, don't know cost, a new mixer may be in order.
