Did this video help you?

Benedict H: Now am hero to wife. THANK YOU, HEROMAKER.

Nadine Klinkenberg: Thanks so much. I was thinking that my mixer was dying. It's back to normal now! Thanks, thanks, thanks!!!

Dale Fogle: we have a KitchenAid KSM500WH Pro 500 5-quart Mixer and none of the beaters reach the bottom of the bowl. Would the pocedure to adjust be the same as this video?

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!!!!

TheCookiePrincess55: The head of my mixer bounces up and down and the whole mixer bounces around. How can I fix that?

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.

oneofakindusa: how to do it yourself....I have a dime.

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

maureen howland: It was excellent. Clear, and easy to follow. If the beaters hit the side on every 4th revolution will that fix also work on that problem? Thank you.

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

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

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.

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

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???

Stephanie Duerfeldt: Thank you!! Very helpful!

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!. 

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

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

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. 

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

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!

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!

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

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. 

hailey: Hi Mark I did not explain what I mean in my other comment. My KA is a bowl lift, and there is a screw on the leg of the mixer, I presume that is the screw, but my beater is too far away from the bottom of the bowl, unlike your video, what can I do. I love all your videos, they are so professional and helpful, thanks for sharing.

Robert Schmitz: THANK YOU!!!!!

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:)

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!

fullofentropy: this worked great thanks!

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!

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

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

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.?

videomejoe: thanks for simple, useful the tip!

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

kb9ivb: thanks

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

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

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.

Paula Rohm: This was so helpful, thank you!

hailey: Mark how do I adjust the beaters on a Pro 600 Kitchen Aid?. Your video was really helpful, thanks.

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

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

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

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!

S Desai: Thanks!

John Ruger: Nicely done. Thanks for the tip

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!

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

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