    Beaters fall out due to worn clip bushing that holds them in internally.

If you can't find the clip bushing anywhere, I have a solution that is inelegant but works, takes about 30 seconds, and costs pennies.

Take a paper clip (the plastic coated ones work especially well, but any paper clip will work). Bend the paper clip into a loop around the shaft of the beater between the beater part and the little disk near the top. Put the loop roughly in the center of the paper clip. Now, bend the ends of the paper clip (a needle-nosed plier works well here, but if you don't have one, be creative) into two little hooks. Next, string together enough rubber bands to stretch around the motor (under the handle) and reach from one end of the paper clip to the other (ask a 12 year old how to string the rubber bands together if you have forgotten). Finally, attach each end of the rubber band to the paper clip with the rubber band going up and around the motor.

The paper clip will ride on the little disk near the top of the beater shaft and the rubber band will exert just enough force to make it want to stay in. We have been using this method for a while in my kitchen.

If anyone gets a line on the clip bushing, please let me know. In the meantime...

Beaters will not stay up in my Oster stand mixmaster. The eject lever will not lock them in. Can it be fixed? Or could it be that I need new beaters because they are worn out and don't fit

They need to be replaced or the locking mechanism does, but in the meantime, wind some thread around the beater end and this may keep them in temporarily.

How do I keep beaters in mixer without them falling out?

Each beater may be shaped differently and only will click into its appointed port. There may be a picture on the mixer showing which side to put each beater.

KP26M1XMR beater shaft falls off

The beater shaft on the 6 quart mixers is part of the planetary assembly. The planetary and center shaft are pressed together, and sometimes they will come apart. The only way to fix this is to replace the planetary or you can have the planetary machine pressed back together.

It is a lot cheaper and less expensive to just replace the planetary. Here is a link to the Planetary Assembly on our website.

Thank you,

Unable to get the beaters on/off the mixer -

As you face your mixer with the bowl toward you, on the right side is a lever that will lock the top in place. Unlock the top and tilt the top back. This will give you access to your beaters. Then push up on the beater while turning it either right or left. It only turns one way and I can't remember which way it turns. Then pull it down once you get it to the point where it disengages. Do the reverse to get the beater ON the mixer. Now, here's another thing to consider. If the spring on the column to which the beater attaches is caked with gunk, it will not collapse to give you the flexibility to push the beater up. UNPLUG your mixer and with a stiff brush, clean the spring. A dry OLD toothbrush is excellent...I keep one at my sink at all times. I hope this helps and if it does, please let Fixya know my rating my solution. Good luck and happy mixing.

Rrk150OB is drooping an dthe pin keeps falling out

I assume you mean the pivot pin on which the top half of the mixer pivots to remove the bowl is sticking out of the side of the stand. Turn the mixer upside down and look up inside the stand which is hollow. You will see a screw. Tap the pin back into position and then tighten the screw.

Now to fix the drooping, and I assume you mean the beaters are hitting the bottom of the bowl, tip the mixer back and look into the hinge area. You will see a rather large screw. Turn it ccw a turn and check the beater to see if it is still hitting the bottom of the bowl. Repeat the procedure until you have 1/4 inch clearance or so from the bottom of the beater to the bowl.

I cannot get the beater to lock in place. The

Hi VBPROSANDY, When you say beater, I assume you mean your flat beater. Are you having the same problem with your Wire Whip beater and dough hook? If you are not, then the first thing I’d do is look inside the flat beater’s attachment well, to see that there is nothing; i.e. hardened food, dough or batter, in the bottom of it that would prevent the agitator shaft and groove pin from seating properly. The flat beater has two drain holes at the bottom for drainage, but if these get plugged it may prevent accumulated ‘gunk’ at the bottom from escaping, and over time the buildup may prevent the beater from seating properly.
If you find the beater attachment well is clean, then from the KA Instruction manual, to attach the flat beater...
1. Slide speed control to OFF and unplug.
2. Slip flat beater on beater shaft.
3. Turn beater to left, hooking beater over the pin on shaft.
Finally, check the groove pin on the agitator shaft to make sure it hasn’t become bent so that it doesn’t fit the beater properly. Pins shouldn’t bend, but sometimes they do.
The beater attachment process should not require any effort as the agitator shaft should easily fit into the beater’s attachment well and easily turn to the left. Your planetary should not move during this process and if it does move it will take some effort on your part to turn it. The fact that you’re turning the planetary means you’ve turned the beater as far to the left as it should go to ‘lock’ it. When you get this far, let go and the beater should fall into place on the groove pin.
Good luck. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

Motor runs but the beater does not move

you most likely stripped the plastic gear (Worm gear???).  This gear is designed to fail to prevent the motor from burning out under EXTREME loads (i.e. when a metal piece falls into the bowl). The plastic gear is much cheaper than a new motor.  Look around on this site to see how to get at/repair the gear.  I've found many parts on and also
