How to Disassemble the Stand Mixer

Disassembling the Stand Mixer  


  1. Raise the motor head: Check to be sure that the Stand Mixer is unplugged, and the speed control is turned to “0”; then slide the locking lever to the unlock position and lift the motor head. Once lifted, slide the locking lever to the lock position to keep the motor head up.


(OPTIONAL) Remove the pouring shield*: Lift the front of the pouring shield* clear of the rim of the bowl, and pull away from the Stand Mixer.


  1. Remove the accessory: Turn the speed control to “0”, unplug the Stand Mixer, and tilt the motor head back; then, press the accessory upward as far as possible, turn the accessory clockwise and pull it away from the beater shaft.


  1. Remove the bowl: Gently turn the bowl counterclockwise to release it from the bowl clamping plate.
