Common Issues with KitchenAid Mixers

Lid does not lock: If the lid does not lock in place, it makes a huge mess that no one wants to clean up. With some makes the mixer will not turn on at all. Try taking the lid off and replacing it, trying it at different positions to make sure that it is being placed in the right position. Take a look and see if there are any tabs that need to aligned in certain spots; if there are, than that is likely your issue. If your mixer lid is still not locking, then you will need a repair.

Mixer does not turn on: This is one of the most common problems with KitchenAid mixers. Check to make sure the issue is not with your outlet by plugging the mixer into another outlet, and seeing if that turns it on. If you’ve switched outlets, and the appliance is still not turning on, you will need to get it repaired.

Physical damage: Physical damage to your KitchenAid mixer can affect its ability to function properly. If the control panel has missing or sticking buttons/dials, or if the whisk inserts aren’t holding the whisks in place, the mixer will not work properly. Also, if you see any dents or scrapes on it, there is a change that there is internal damage to the inner workings of the mixer as well.

No mixing power: If the appliance turns on but will not mix, this could mean that there is either an internal issue, or the beaters need to be adjusted. Try taking the beaters out and then putting them back in, ensuring that they lock into place, and turn the mixer back on. If it still won’t mix, you will likely need a repair.

Worn out gears: This can be a tricky one to determine unless you’re a trained technician. If the gears are worn or have become loose, the mixer won’t be able to operate properly. The most common signs of worn out gears include the mixer’s beaters aren’t turning, the beaters aren’t turning as quickly as they normally do, or there are loud sounds coming from the appliance while it is on. The most common issue is the worm gear has worn out, but luckily it is easily replaceable. Just send your mixer to the technicians at RepairCare and we’ll have it fixed for you in no time.
