Attaching the Drive Assembly - Tilt-Head Stand Mixer

How to Attach Drive Assembly to Tilt-Head Stand Mixer

IMPORTANT: Always set the mixer to speed one before adding your ice cream base to the bowl. If the mixer is not running, the base could freeze too quickly and lock the attachment, causing breakage.

  1. Be sure the Stand Mixer is OFF (0) and unplugged. Keep the motor head tilted back and put the Dasher and Freeze Bowl into place.
