Did this video help you?

Myrtelina Reyes: Hi thanks for this tutorial I'm having this problem with my kitchen aid, mine is the pro hd series. Bowl lift do I adjust it the same way. Thanks for a prompt response.

Pepperdash: Thanks. This worked like a charm. Mine needed about a quarter turn. 

Luz Stokes: Thank you so much for this video. I put a dime in and it was spinning all over the place. i had to make 3 adjustments but finally got it to move only 1/4" each time it was hit. What a big difference:)

Jackie Hall: Useful information for the care of my wonderful mixer! Many thanks for sharing!

S Desai: I did this to repair my mixer, and the paddle stopped hitting the bowl. I have another problem. When I lock the head of the mixture, it doesn't go all the way. Then, when I use it, especially at high speeds, even if the mixer is locked, the head bounces up and down. Any idea on how to fix that???

Thomas Sprouse: Mine was bouncing all over the place and after watching your video, it's good as new. Thanks very much for your video and the help.

stihltoe: I just bought the Proline 7 qt and the bowl is supposed to attach to a clip on the back. There is no way the bowl can attach to the clip.. can you advise on this

Linda Stevens Jones: I was so excited to discover this video. The beater on my brand new Artisan mixer hits the side of the bowl ... but it barely moves the dime at all. (More like your "after" example). Any suggestions as to what else I can try would be so appreciated. Thanks!. 

kb9ivb: thanks

yoyomax12 - the diet free zone: The dime method is perfect! Adjusted my machine and it works great. Thank you!!!

Dan Wagner: THANKS BUNCHES FOR SUCH AN EASY INSTRUCTION ON FIXING MY PROBLEM, YOU SHOULD BE A TEACHER!!!!

Judy Scott: Thank you! I have an Artisan Kitchenaid and noticed when I made my last cheesecake, that when I poured it out into the pan, there was a big glob of the cream cheese in the bottom that hadn't got mixed into the batter. So I will try your tip. I think my blade is positioned too high. 

stihltoe: I did that.. and it appears the lip on the bowl is defective. it keeps slipping out. another interesting thing is after cleaning the bowl a few times with dawn dishdetergent. the inside of the bowl has gray coming off constantly into the dough or what is in there.. I cleaned it and put a small amount of crisco in and wipes it with a white cloth and the white cloth turned grey. I took this to Williams Sonoma, and I am not the first to have noticed this. Others have had the same issue. Might you know why this is happening.?

Hilary S: Thank you for this video! You just saved me the stress of having my Kitchen Aid mixer repaired! In fact, you addressed exactly what my problem was: that very screw was screwed in too tightly in my mixer, and my entire head was wobbly/wouldn't lock properly into place. Turns out, it has never been adjusted correctly. It now is and works smoothly. Thank you!

Alvaro Manuel Castilla Molina: Thank you very much for this video.

Annie NC: I was so excited to see your video. Some good friends of mine gave me a Kitchen Aid mixer last year for Christmas. I have used it only once because the first time I used it for buttercream frosting, some gray residue came out in the frosting and discolored it and I have been afraid to use it since then as I didn’t want to waste another batch of whatever I was making. I went to the Kitchen Aid website and read how to adjust the beater height. I turned the screw a little counter-clockwise, but I didn’t have the right size screwdriver and was afraid of stripping the screw before I could adjust the beater height correctly. So here’s my question. I purchased a good screwdriver last night (a year later) and did your ‘dime’ test this morning and the dime didn’t move at all. What does it mean if the dime isn’t moving at all? Do I have the beater too high now? It still looks and feels low, but there is obviously a little height if it’s clearing the dime. I have some canned white frosting that I haven’t opened. I guess I could whip that up and see if it turns gray. Would appreciate your input. And thank you for taking the time to post this instructional video. It was very helpful for us DIY’ers!

Robert Schmitz: THANK YOU!!!!!

Baker threetwentythree: Hi, like everyone else, thank you very much for this video...who would have thought.

Darren Esposito: Thank you very much. This is very helpful. I just bought my mixer and it is jumping a round so I guess I need to adjust it the way you showed. 

Amanda Mackay: I thought that was a loose screw and tightened it one day after noticing it. Forgot about it and used my Kitchenaid a few weeks later and I thought I had broke it it was so shakey, nope just that screw , scared me for a moment!

Kathy Shoenfeld: OH my goodness, Thank you,Thank you, Thank you...You're video helped my husband fix my kitchen aid and I couldn't be happier. Very helpful!!!!

rrrmomof3: I don't have this paddle. My whisk is hitting the sides and bottom. Can I make the adjustment with the whisk?

Fran Nordyke: Has anyone having problems getting the beater off. I can't get mine off. It use to come off easy 

fullofentropy: this worked great thanks!

Afton Trish Rodrigues: Thank you so much. I was quite worry if i have to send to the shop to fix and take time to fix. Luckly search for solution before decide to send it off. Thanks!

Bk94541: U CUTE, But U can ask me anything in Bed :P wink Thanks for help :)

Cindy Davis: Thank you for mentioning that if the screw is backed out too much that the head won't lock down. That is the problem that I was having with my mixer. Thanks to your video the problem is solved!

michael taylor: exactly the answer to my problem. thank you!

Fanny Parker: Great video and I got the dime to just slightly move, but the beater is still hitting the side of the bowl! I'm ready to send it back but having a mixer like this is something I always wanted but couldn't afford. I HAVE to use the bananas tonight lol or throw them out! So I have to go back to my old, trusty hand held but if there is anything else I can try please let me know!

Paula Rohm: This was so helpful, thank you!

Terri Ann and Jim Foglesong: This was a wonderful, clear video addressing the only problem that we're having with our mixer. Thank you!

Lillie Cothran: Thank you for that,I am going to try that...

videomejoe: thanks for simple, useful the tip!

Jim Mina: Thanks for the tips. Worked out perfectly. You're the man.

Joseph P: That worked great thank you very much thought I was going to have to buy my wife a new mixer...

Cindy Rapp: Thank you, thank you, thank you!! Up and running again!

S Desai: Thanks!

John Ruger: Nicely done. Thanks for the tip

Sheree McGrath: I have tried this with my bowl lift model, the Professional 6 series, and it is still leaving a metal residue in my cake batter. So you have any other suggestions? Thank you.

Debra Ridley: Thanks for the info, I could not find my manual. Thank goodness for Google

Janet Sosa: Thank you! if that works for the beater, does it mean that the whisk is ok too?

hila426: excellent, thank you!

christine godfrey: hi, very helpfu. can you advise on the same process for the oher wire whisk? Shoukd it be touching the bowl before you start?kindle queen christine

Karen Prince: Very Helpful thank you!!

Michele Guerra: That was perfectly done. What do you do when you have a rubber edged paddle. Mine slaps the liquid all over the place. 

Melanie Gottlieb: Fantastic!! Thanks!

cherubs178: thank you so much!!! my kitchen aid hasn't worked right in a year!!! going to go attempt this now!! what a simple fix! thank you thank you!

Flor Gomez: Thanks for this!! When I turn on my mixer to stir it goes to fast so when I put ingredients such as flour it always makes a mess in my kitchen. I was wondering if there is a way that i can make the "stir" mode slower

John Voelk: I found it very difficult to turn the adjustment screw when the unit was standing upright in "normal" position, to the point that I thought I stripped the screw. The trick is to put a towel down on a table and to lay the unit down on it's "back". You then have more leverage to turn the screw.

S. Wallace: Thanks for the tip & video! Helped me & I could do it myself. :)

Toyota fourwheelins: go blow something up.
TrueStory: Lisää?? :D
DarkBungleX: I am not a literary scholar but I would beg to differ about calling Schrödinger's cat a metaphor because it is an experiment that should work in the real world and is only called a thought experiment because it's not an experiment you can actually do in practice. A metaphor already has the characteristics of the thing you are trying to explain but in Schrodingers example it only has the right characteristics because IT IS an example of the exact thing you trying to explain. I would agree that the cat, being an observer, should collapse the wave function but nothing else in the experiment should collapse it though people more qualified can correct me if I am wrong
