If you are referring to the transmission, I believe it's a sealed unit.

  • 3-Speed gear box
  • Transmission: Wide-faced, hardened alloy steel, helical gears fully sealed in transmission lubricant with heavy-duty ball bearings and clutch combine for highly dependable, quiet operation.

    The reason for the sticker is that the mixer is NSF certified.

    The attachments are not rated for commercial or restaurant use, hence the sticker.

    Of course, the attachments will work perfectly well with your mixer as they do with my KitchenAid KSMC50.

    The hinge pin is normally locked in place by a screw. If that screw is not loosened enough the pin will not be easy to put back in place.

    Put the mixer on its side and look through the base. You should see the screw, Loosen it and the hinge pin can be slid into place (make sure the pin's hole in the case and the one in the head line up). Once the hinge pin is in place, tighten the screw to secure the pin.

    No there isn't, the oil that's leaking out is the liquid that makes up part of the grease that's in your gearbox. Grease is solids and oil combined, over time the mixture breaks down and releases the oil. A proper fix if you wish to do it is to dismantle the machine, clean out the old grease and replace it with new. The oil that's leaking is harmless as it is special food grade grease in there. If you choose to replace the grease you should be buying and using KitchenAid food grade grease. A KitchenAid service agent will have the grease and be able to do the job for you.
