Question about KitchenAid KP2671 Professional 6 Series Stand Mixer
Since I just realized that my beaters are scraping the bottom of the bowl, tried turning the adjustment screw in order to lower the bowl. Doing so did not work, and the beater still is coming into contact with the bowl. It seems that the problem may be with the beater shaft, which has more play than usual to it. If I push up on the beater while it's attached, the shaft moves up as well. Doing this makes the beater clear the bottom of the bowl properly, so I'm wondering if there's a way to adjust the beater shaft.

Hi. You can adjust the clearance by turning the adjustment screw counterclockwise. This screw will only turn 90 degrees either way so dont try to force it any further than that. This adjustment dosen't lower the beater, it raises the bowl a bit.
With the bowl-lift in the low position, you'll see a screw on the column of the mixer facing toward the front. This is the adjustment screw. Use the flat beater to check the clearance.
If this solution has assisted you, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45

I had a similar problem with mine - the problem turned out to be that I hadn't clicked the bowl into place corectly. If you find the bowl is tilting forward slightly then you probably need to push it into the clip at the back.

Your beater to bowl clearance has come out of alignment. This can happen naturally over time and with normal use of the appliance. This is something you may correct from home using a flathead screwdriver.
Unplug the mixer, with the bowl and flat beater removed. Tilt the mixing head back as far as the machine will allow. In the exposed hinge, behind where the bowl would normally sit, you will see a 3/8 screw exposed. Turn this screw half a turn counterclockwise (to your left) in order to raise the flat beater from the bottom of the bowl.
This may take a few attempts until the beater is clearing the bottom of the bowl again. If the adjustment screw will no longer turn, do not force it. It is only designed to move so far to make the appropriate adjustment.
Be cautious. Raising the flat beater too high may leave dry ingredients at the bottom of the bowl.
If further information is needed, I would advise you to contact Kitchenaid Customer Service. They may walk through this adjustment through you over the phone and can look into ordering replacement beaters for you also.
Their toll-free telephone number is 1-800-541-6390.

JOE:You don’t say if you have a ‘tilt-head’or a ‘bowl-lift' mixer, but you can easily download a PDF version of your Owners Manual from the KA website (http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home).Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals& Guides> and enter the 6 character model number (in your case, use KSM90P)and select the last file listed that appear under Owners Manuals:KSM90PSWW0.pdf (2930.74 KB)and save that file to your PC.You’ll need to have Adobe Reader to be able to open it. Turn to Page 11 and you will find the instructions for adjusting the mixer head height.I have extracted the instructions below:
Beater to Bowl Clearance
Your mixer is adjusted at the factory so that the flat beaterjust clears the bottom of the bowl. If for any reason, the flat beater hits thebottom of the bowl or is too far away from the bowl, clearance
• Unplug mixer.
• Lift motor head.
• Turn screw (A) SLIGHTLY counter clockwise (left) to raise flat beater or clockwise (right) to lower flat beater.

Testimonial: "Thanks to this answer, I was able to fix the problem in about five minutes. I am very grateful. Joe McCutchen"
SOURCE: mixer head is loose
I assume you mean that the top half of the mixer, above the pivot pin, moves with respect to the lower half of the mixer, the stand part. There is a pin on which the top half pivots which becomes loose.
Turn the mixer over and look up where the pin goes through the two pieces. There is a screw there which secures the pin. Tap the pin into position and tighten the screw.
