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.
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.
Hildi Ettinger: Thank you! Very helpful!
S. Wallace: Thanks for the tip & video! Helped me & I could do it myself. :)
Jennifer Cook: Fab! Thanks for this tip!
Jennifer Coombe: Thank you! The dime trick was perfect!! Our mixer is working great again!!
LaurynNicole G: Thank you, Mark!
Joan Wehmhoefer: Thank you Thank you! Off to find a dime to check mine out.
Stacey Welch-Andrade: Thank you!! I thought my mixer was done for and then I found your video!!
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
Chris Steele: Thank you for these easy to follow directions. After ruining a beater from
rubbing I am happy to finally fix the problem.
Karen Prince: Very Helpful thank you!!
Amy Wilson: Thank you! I can bake again...
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.
3Girls248: Thanks, can't wait to tell my daughter her beater will now work!
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 ?
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.
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.
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.
