Did this video help you?

Melanie Gottlieb: Fantastic!! Thanks!

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. 

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 suggestions?

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.

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 thanks.

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 great!

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 all.

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.

aluxbalum: For all the the dedication, passion and energy placed into this system there seems to always be missing the long forgotten technology of gratefulness, the biologist considers this simply a more sustainable form to generate revenues. yet the fish are nothing else but swimming flesh with scales. This is a much better option than conventional fish farms, but some respect and gratefullnes to the actual fish can go a long way
Chris Ferguson: Yea freak Hickman's New/Avengers. I was really looking forward to this because he did amazing work with The Ultimates, and I've heard very good things about his F4/FF run, but it just doesn't work. Marvel took a big leap and pretty much stated: "Hickman is the guy, he runs the universe, and he gets the biggest titles." And he totally dropped the ball. Nick Spencer's even coming in to help soon because Hickman can't handle the pressure. :/ At least Bendis is still holding up his half.
bulaia: the moment they do that trypticon reissue is the moment i preorder.
André Novais: Linda.
HerrBertAusC: Formerly it was supposed to be Biollante... also Hedorah was planned, but then it became Radon - so he is able in the game to spit out a strange green dust... Also Gigan was planned in place of Megalon...
