Charles Bonik: getting one for Christmas I like to know as much about it as possible and
all the troubleshooting you can do at home. so I thank you very much. ps I
Sally S: You are a LIFE SAVER!!!
eReplacementParts.com: With your mixer still being under warranty, it would be best if you take it
to a warranty service center to be looked over. There will be no charge to
you other than getting it to the service center.
zeds2ded1: Thanks for video. I fear I have a dodgy unit. If I set up as your video the
head is very loose indeed. I keep turning screw back until head locks
securely in place. This means that the the distance from bottom of bowl to
bottom of mixer is just over quarter of an inch. Should I lower this any
further then head once again becomes loose. I only bought Artisan two days
ago so am surprised a brand new machine should act like this.
pcontreras8nails: I had purchased a beautiful glass bowl for my mixer but returned it because
of the blade rubbing on it. Wish I would have watched this video first.
Maybe I'll go and repurchase it! :-) TY
John Malone: wow cool ty this was very helpfull
Paul Charlesworth: Very helpful, thanks. I primarily use the dough hook and was amazed how far
it is from the bottom of the bowl once correctly adjusted for the beater.
The dough hook must have been catching the sides of the bowl, not the
bottom. Maybe its psychological, but it seems like the dough hook brings
the dough together a little "better" now.
eReplacementParts.com: Thanks for putting our videos to good use! To answer your question I can
direct you toward our web site and another video. Go to our website and
look up your model (KSM5). It will be the first one listed. Once you are
there go to page B.
Divina M: Thank you...gonna go try that now
eReplacementParts.com: The coated attachment have be designed to go through the dishwasher. The
burnished attachments should only be hand washed or else they will turn
gray. As a suggestion we say to hand wash all of the attachments to give
them a little longer life.All these attachments and more can be found on
our website. Thanks for watching!
Dan Z: Hi Mark. I love your very helpful videos! I watched your instructional on
how to replace the worm gear a few months ago and it saved me a lot of
money and the hassle of finding a repair shop. After I replaced the worm
gear, the beater was set too low and was hitting the bowl. I found this
video, followed your clear instructions, and presto! Problem solved. The
prices that you charge for parts is also reasonable. eReplacementParts is
an all around excellent value. Thank you!
Julie Henriksen: What a great tip! I have shared your advice on my playlist!
Carrie MacLean: WONDERFUL!!! Thank you so much. You guys are the bomb! First you showed me
how to replace the funky gasket on my front-load washer, now you're showing
me how to fix my mixer! Love it!
TL R: AHHHH---THANK YOU! I have loved my KitchenAid mixer except for one little
thing: the paddle didn't reach to the very bottom. That meant having to
handstir everything as a final step in order to pick up all the stuff on
the bottom. Ended up here through Pinterest, watched your video, & applied
the reverse (since my paddle was high I turned my screw clockwise) and
TADA---my dime moves now. =) Thanks again!
markcumbriauk: the clip was broke on mine, I've just ordered the new part from the us
CotDancing: Wow! I'm on my second paddle because I never knew this. Thanks!
rellenich: Thanks for your informative tutorials. I used your KitchenAid "fail-safe"
gear replacement instruction with tremendous success. I am, however,
finding it difficult to locate information on how to adjust the beater to
bowl clearance on a KitchenAid KSM5 stand mixer. There does not appear to
any adjustment screws on this model. The KSM5 is from the Proline series,
with a lift arm. Any information you can provide is most appreciated.
Arnar Þór Stefánsson: HI Mark, I have the same problem as Joshatdot here above. I have the pin
conrrect possition, and adjusted the height of the head correctly, but
still the head wobbles quite a bit. I've noticed that the handle on the
side, which is used to raise the head, never goes all the way forward.
happyfeet86: Thank you. thank you, thank you!!!!!!
Marianela Estrada: Thank you so much!!! I was afraid that I was going to spend a lot of money
fixing my mixer.
eReplacementParts.com: So glad that we could be of help! The gray streaks can be caused a couple
of ways. If your attachments were plastic coated and are not now from
pealing you should get new ones. If your attachments were burnished (really
shinny) and are not now they also should be replaced.
eReplacementParts.com: Figure 24 on the diagram is the adjustment screw. This screw will push
directly against the top of the arm lift. If your mixer does not have this
screw then you might have an older mixer that was not made to be adjusted.
The video that will be of some help is "How to Adjust the Beaters on a
KitchenAid Stand Mixer". It is for a tilt back style mixer, however, the
principle is the same. Thanks for watching!
Mary Phillips: Super video! Mine is too far up and I knew there was an adjustment that
could be done, but didn't know how to do it. Thanks!
RFD265: Another great video -- very helpful with easy to follow instructions. Thank
you so much!
eReplacementParts.com: @sarabeth721 You are very welcome!
SzeryngFan: Hi, Mark, thank you very much for your videos, simply great !! Still we are
not 100% sure whether the planetary gear is supposed to have a slight
vertical movement (up & down) of approx. 1/8'' ?? (our Artisan is now +/- 1
year old) Your kind advice on this matter would be highly appreciated, many
sarabeth721: wow, great and simple-to-do information..thanks
Pamela Tucker: Great Video! Thanks!!
Joshatdot: I took the all apart, following your grease video. I also removed the hinge
pin. After I took off the planetary gear, I saw tiny metal bits (not much)
in one area of the housing. I inspected every bit in there, and I did not
see any broken teeth. I then opened up the motor housing, and gave it a
through inspection & tightened any screws. Everything looked great, grease
was 90% clean, hardly any dark. I put it back together and everything is
iGGyH4MM3R: thanks! was having this issues and this got me fixed!
Kristen Duffey: Exactly what I needed! Love the dime idea so we can tell if we have done it
right. Thank you So much!!!
atorres7122: super helpful, saved my wife a lot of time and kept her cool, thanks again
Michelle Hazzard: VERY VERY helpful! worked amazing! thanks so much! mine was clicking and it
was driving me crazy! thanks again!
SzeryngFan: Hi Mark, thank you. We are still not 100% sure about it since the planetary
gear can be pushed up (& down) by approx. 4-5 mm. Is that normal so far?
Many thanks. Ed.
Lee Ann Marona: Thanks for explaining how to adjust the beater height, Mark. I didn't know
this was the cause for my beater wearing out on the bottom. And thanks to
the reviewer on Amazon, under the K45 replacement flat beater link, for
making me aware of the video.
Daniel Drumheller: Very nice! I adjusted my wife's and she's very happy with the repair!
894dragon: Thank you so much for this helpful tutorial! I was actually researching why
my beater makes a clicking sound when it rotates. any idea why it is making
Jackie Stefan: Hi Mark - Thank you so much! It's like a MAGIC TRICK I can show my friends!
Do you know what model of KitchenAid uses a flat beater that has a 2" neck?
I have this "odd" sized beater that doesn't the basic K45 model! I spoke to
3 people at KA - and no one could answer this question! Have a nice night -
clwhite1: so is that how it's supposed to be? barely moving the dime but definitely
Rachael Wallgren: Thank you!
eReplacementParts.com: If you have adjusted the head as far up as you can, I would suggest to
check if the bowl is misshapen. If the beater is hitting it in one spot
only, you easily could have a warped bowl. You can also try putting the
bowl into a different position and see if that makes a difference. If all
else fails you should consider taking it to a service center for
inspection. Thanks for watching!
P. Stopar: So glad I found this video. Using the dime is a great tip.
Deborah Wardell: Yes, thank you to Amazon for making me aware of this. I just ordered the
side swipe beater and I might need to make an adjustment after I get it. It
is good to know what to do.
Rachael Wallgren: OMG! Thank you! I haven't been able to use my mixer for a couple of years I
thought I would have to throw it out but I just couldn't bring myself to do
it. I just tried this and it WORKED! Any suggestions on when the
attachments leave gray marks on your hands?
thill549: Hi, I tried this and I'm still having the issue of the flat beater rubbing.
Could this be another issue? (with the bowl, beater, or some other
component?" - Thanks!
Ariel Gonzalez-Cruz: My mixer the top part keeps popping up and down when its kneading something
why is that and how do i fix it.
TheUsableMobilePhone: Dear Mark, thanks for a very easy to understand video about the adjustment
of the beater. I'm surely going to watch the other videos. When I follow
your instructions, the beater still hits the bottom of the bowl, unless I
adjust the height to the point where the head does not lock into place -
can you offer any advice? Can any other part of the Mixer influence this?
Thanks from Denmark, Europe :o)
markcumbriauk: My kitchen aid miser bowl rocks back and forth when its in use, any idea
albrose1: Thank you very much for your demonstration, but I wonder if I could use the
same technique (including the dime) for the Kitchen Professional 600 series
with a metalic beater?
Joshatdot: @eReplacementParts My hinge pin is full seated & the screw is tight. I have
a video of it wobbling in my channel.
