Stir Tower Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting for KitchenAid® Stir Tower

Food not being stirred, or sticking to the side of the pot

  • For most cooking, use only the flip-and-stir wand.
  • For larger quantities or for foods like soups and stews, use both stirring attachments together.

Motor shutting off

The stirring motor has built-in thermal overload protection.

  • If food is too thick or heavy, try selecting a slower speed, or prepare a smaller quantity.

Stir arm won’t lock into place

  • If the stirring arm does not go all the way down, rotate the attachments slightly before lowering the arm.
  • Be sure that the stirring arm is aligned with the pouring spout.
