Question about Food Mixers
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?
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.
Good luck and have fun. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA
