Removing an attachment from a KitchenAid Stand Mixer can seem intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. With the right tools and a bit of patience, you can easily remove any attachment from your mixer.
Before beginning, make sure you have the right tools on hand. You’ll need a Phillips head screwdriver and a 3/16-inch hex wrench. You may also need an adjustable wrench if the attachment has a nut.
Once you have your tools ready, it’s time to get started. Begin by unplugging your mixer from the wall. This will help ensure that you don’t accidentally start the machine while attempting to remove the attachment.
Next, remove the bowl from the mixer. This should be easy to do, as the bowl simply attaches to the top of the machine. If it’s stuck, you may need to use a bit of force.
Once the bowl is off, you’ll be able to access the attachment. There should be two screws holding it in place. Use the Phillips head screwdriver to loosen the screws and remove them.
Now you can remove the attachment. Depending on the type of attachment, you may need to use an adjustable wrench to loosen the nut holding it in place. If not, simply grab the attachment and pull it off.
Once you’ve successfully removed the attachment, all you have to do is reinstall the bowl on the mixer and plug it back in. Your KitchenAid Stand Mixer is now ready to go!
Removing an attachment from a KitchenAid Stand Mixer is a simple process. With the right tools and a bit of patience, you can easily remove any attachment from your mixer in no time.
