Broken shaft on Maodel K45 Kitchenaid mixer

4 posts in this topic

Dear Samurai Master,

Please help me. I was in the middle of cake baking when my mixer bowl, not properly seated ( too much beer, not enough lunch), flew out of the threads and jammed itself against the neck of the mixer. Long story short, the shaft that buttons itself into various implements broke off.

Can I replace the shaft? What is that part called exactly? and how do I do it?

Thank you,

I tried and they do not carry that part. It is not an implement that is broken, it is the shaft that the implements attach to.

I am not completely satisfied. When should I expect the Samurai Repair Man at my house to commit hari-kari?
