Question about the bowl

Hi

I have bought a Kitchen Aid K5-A , off Ebay . It's an oldie . Everything seems to be there but the bowl that came with it will not settle flush on the guide pins .

Have I been sold the wrong bowl or are the pins adjustable ?

Thank you

Erik

A shot in the dark here, since I have another model.....  Is there a clip on the machine body at the location of the back of the bowl? I have to put my bowl on the pins, then press down, moderately hard, on the back of the bowl until it snaps into the clip. I had to call support to figure this out the first time I used the machine.

Hope this might help.

You probably need to put the bowl on so that it's tipped slightly forward (toward you) for the pins to fit.  Then press down and back and it should clip in place.

I have done it ! I get it clipped in and then bear down over the pins .

A lot harder than I thought you would need to .

Thank you both

Erik
