yoyomax12 - the diet free zone: The dime method is perfect! Adjusted my machine and it works great. Thank
Kate Capone: great video!!
Melanie Gottlieb: Fantastic!! Thanks!
John Last: What's the tiny screw on the side for? It looks like you can adjust the
mixer sideways a little to center the beaters if necessary . There are no
instructions I could find anywhere if that' what it is for.
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
Jennifer Cook: Fab! Thanks for this tip!
Shana Ellis: My mixer is the bowl lift type. The screw is turned as far clockwise as it
can go yet the beater is still touching the bottom of the bowl. Any more
Texgal: Thank You so much!!!! Very Helpful!!!!
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.
LaurynNicole G: Thank you, Mark!
Joan Wehmhoefer: Thank you Thank you! Off to find a dime to check mine out.
S. Wallace: Thanks for the tip & video! Helped me & I could do it myself. :)
betty ray: thank you so much, I seem to have problems with raising that beater-- never
thought of the dime to help. gonna go fix my KA right now!
Stacey Welch-Andrade: Thank you!! I thought my mixer was done for and then I found your video!!
Jennifer Coombe: Thank you! The dime trick was perfect!! Our mixer is working great again!!
Chris Steele: Thank you for these easy to follow directions. After ruining a beater from
rubbing I am happy to finally fix the problem.
Cindy Rapp: Thank you, thank you, thank you!! Up and running again!
Karen Prince: Very Helpful 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
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!
Janet Sosa: Thank you! if that works for the beater, does it mean that the whisk is ok
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
Amy Wilson: Thank you! I can bake again...
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!
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
3Girls248: Thanks, can't wait to tell my daughter her beater will now work!
Boobag Boo: Hi, I am having trouble with the wire whip hitting bottom of the bowl, it
is very close, touching bottom of the bowl. I have tried turning counter
clockwise as suggested, have turned 1.5 revolutions and it still touches
bottom of bowl. Please advise what is wrong? Thank you.
Lynn Ahlberg: Thank you for the video! It seems that the adjustment screw you mention is
stripped on our mixer. Do you sell replacement screws? Thanks!
jim noyb: great videos, how do you keep the pivit pin that allows the mixer to be
raised from working its way out ?
Sanretful: Great videos, i just discovered... i only have a question, is the same for
The Professional 5 plus, because i've tried but the screw seems to be real
hard to turn. Thanks.
Goddessssusie: Thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU!!!
Now if you can convince Kitchenaid to make the beaters out of solid metal
without a coating, I'll love you forever! :)
bykarin: Hi. Thanks for sharing this! Please inform if you can help me to fix the
opposit problem (beater is too distant from the bowl) in a different stand
mixer model (KV25G0XER). I assume there is a similar system. I just didn't
find where it is.
John Voelk: Thanks for the video. We have the Epicurean model with the lift-up bowl.
I found the adjustment screw but it is extremely difficult to turn this
counter clockwise. I fear that I might have stripped the screw. This
might require a trip to a repair shop. Any advice or explanation why this
screw is so difficult to turn? Comments much appreciated.
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?
hila426: excellent, thank you!
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.
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.
