What part number did you order for the beater and what is the model number for the mixer? Also is the mixer brand new, or did you get it used and it just started happening?

If the beater passes the dime test there is no need to change the adjustment screw. The screw head rotates an eccentric stop which changes how far up the bowl lift goes. The screw limited to a full range adjustment of !/2 turn.

To access the screw internally, the motor head must be removed from the column. Download the service manual from:

If you are referencing the pin which locks the beater itself to the planetary's shaft, it can be removed with a punch.
However, if you are trying to remove the planetary itself, a 5/32" punch will do the trick.

I couldn't remove the K-Beater as when I tried to turn it the whole mechanism turned with it. I couldn't even remove the splashguard! I was going to take it to the Kenwood factory (a few miles from home) but then I thought I'd give it one more go and this is what I did...
  1. Next to where the K-Beater attaches in the middle of the circular plate is a lug with a pointed-shape bolt on the end. Remove this with a spanner and the beater plus gear cog can be removed.
  2. Place some mole grips or wide pliers on a worktop and sit the cogged gear in to it and grip so that it won't turn.
  3. Now you should be able to remove the K-Beater!
Perhaps someone can suggest how to stop it happening again. I haven't attached anything since but will update this post if I have any other helpful tips.

Try cleaning contacts on speed control board. If it works, suggest replace.

i can help but i need the exact model # from the mixer

Food Mixers | Answered on Feb 16, 2019

What you need to check is going to depend on the model. No point me attempting to help without knowing what one it is. If it has a back cover held on by a single cross head (philips) screw then very likely the solution will be under there. When plugged in there is live power there so be aware ***** is not far away if you plan on messing about while it's live.

You can use a heavy weight gear oil or call the local hobart branch for it.To remove oil----Look under the mixer where the beater shaft is in the back and you will see a three quarter inch nut,remove this nut and drain the oil then put nut back in.To fill the unit remove the top cover screws and remove the top,you will see a long hexagon nut in length,remove this and grab a funnel then add the oil---be patient it takes time to fill as the oil is heavy.

you may need a diagram for this. There may be a diode in line with current. If so, it functions as a circuit breaker to keep from damaging the motor. If no current goes thru diode but is at the "front", then replace diode. Also something made the diode malfunction, so you need to investigate. My money is on the motor. It is probably starting to ground out.
