I have an Epicurean stand mixer and cannot seem to fit the rotor attachment from the ice cream maker kit to the stand. It won't lock in place. Any tips? I did read the instructions and followed the non-spring reco. Actually tried the other orientation as well, with no good fitting results.

The LED display on our KitchenAid 1722 electric kettle failed

The LED display on our KitchenAid 1722 electric kettle failed after only 6 months of regular household use, which rendered the kettle useless. The retailer has sent us a new replacement kettle along with the instruction to "cut the cord off the old kettle and throw the item away". But we have two questions: (1) would it be worth getting the LED display on the old kettle repaired? (2) is failure of the LED display on the 1722 kettle a known or common fault? Thank you.

Kitchen Aid stand mixer model K 45. When mixing something

Kitchen Aid stand mixer model K 45. When mixing something difficult like bread dough, it slows down nearly to a stop. When I turn it off and back on again, it runs normal for a sec and then slows down again. What part or parts do I need to change. It is a pretty old mixer, is there also some other maintenance things I should do while working on it.

I have a Kitchenaid (Artisan) stand mixer. Seldom used before

I have a Kitchenaid (Artisan) stand mixer. Seldom used before there were problems. When turned on to "mix" something, the top motor area shakes/the pen holding it to the bottom bounces almost all the way out. The mixer itself does not move, just the motor part that shakes. I adjusted the screw tightness and make sure the pen is centered but the top continues to shake. It's so annoying that I simply quit using it and since I have a Kitchenaid hand mixer, I get by ok. I spent a lot of money on this stand mixer and hate to see it just sitting sadly on a shelf unuseable. Is there anything I can do to stop the shaking ? If not, can you refer me to a repair specialist in the Paducah, Ky area? It's way to late to return it to QVC and the shipping would be expensive. Please advise. ThanksWanda Young [email protected]
