Did this video help you?

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:)

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???

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!

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

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!

John Ruger: Nicely done. Thanks for the tip

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

S Desai: Thanks!

Robert Schmitz: THANK YOU!!!!!

kb9ivb: thanks

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

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!

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

fullofentropy: this worked great thanks!

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

videomejoe: thanks for simple, useful the tip!

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

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

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

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!

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!

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

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

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

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!

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

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!

Cindy Rapp: Thank you, thank you, thank you!! Up and running again!

Joan Wehmhoefer: Thank you Thank you! Off to find a dime to check mine out.

Melanie Gottlieb: Fantastic!! Thanks!

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 screw.

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?

S. Wallace: Thanks for the tip & video! Helped me & I could do it myself. :)

Amy Wilson: Thank you! I can bake again...

Karen Prince: Very Helpful thank you!!

hila426: excellent, thank you!

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. 

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?

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.

Texgal: Thank You so much!!!! Very Helpful!!!!

Chris Steele: Thank you for these easy to follow directions. After ruining a beater from rubbing I am happy to finally fix the problem.

LaurynNicole G: Thank you, Mark! 

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!

Jennifer Coombe: Thank you! The dime trick was perfect!! Our mixer is working great again!!

Stacey Welch-Andrade: Thank you!! I thought my mixer was done for and then I found your video!!

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.
