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.
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
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.?
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.
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!
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:)
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
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
Fran Nordyke: Has anyone having problems getting the beater off. I can't get mine off. It
use to come off easy
yoyomax12 - the diet free zone: The dime method is perfect! Adjusted my machine and it works great. Thank
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

SHOULD BE A TEACHER!!!!
michael taylor: exactly the answer to my problem. thank you!
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!
Robert Schmitz: THANK YOU!!!!!
Terri Ann and Jim Foglesong: This was a wonderful, clear video addressing the only problem that we're

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

paddle. Mine slaps the liquid all over the place.
Paula Rohm: This was so helpful, thank you!
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
S. Wallace: Thanks for the tip & video! Helped me & I could do it myself. :)
hila426: I made this adjustment and my beater attachment works perfectly, but my
whisk is still making some noise. Is it okay if the whisk makes noise even
though the dime isn't moving much?
Amy Wilson: Thank you! I can bake again...
Joan Wehmhoefer: Thank you Thank you! Off to find a dime to check mine out.
Chris Steele: Thank you for these easy to follow directions. After ruining a beater from
rubbing I am happy to finally fix the problem.
