Use this suggestion with caution. Assuming it is real stainless steel (not a coated or faux finish) and you have already tried various cleaners without success.
Purchase Scotch-Brite pads for stainless steel (many automotive stores sell them for a few bucks) and lightly rub the area beng careful to ALWAYS RUB/POLISH IN A STRAIGHT LINE WITH THE "GRAIN" or brush marks to polish out the stain. Always test this on an inconspicuous area first. This also works well with stainless steel vent hoods and cook tops.
IF you have a new disk and it will not stick, the velcro-like surface on the machine is worn. "Hook and Loop" is but another term for "Velcro" and the simplest solution is to purchase velcro tape from any fabric store and glue the correct side to the sander.
There are two screws holding an access cover on the top front half of the mixer. These screws are normally plainly visible - has it been repainted heavily enough to hide the screws?
If you can't see the screws, all I can say is they are there, under the paint. Maybe shine a flashlight accross the top front half at an angle and look for a hint of a slotted screw head in the paint.
I'm not sure what the access cover is made of nor am I certain if the screws are stainless steel, but if the cover is aluminum and the screws aren't stainless steel, then a magnet should be able to locate the screws for you.
The screws a usually a domed-flathead screw, so some very close inspection of the paint surface may show a slight "bump" where the srews are.
Sounds like it is time for a new backing pad. Usually the hooks get cooked and/or caked so that they don't have the "claws" to grab the fuzz on the sandpaper. If this is a well used backing pad, the hooks eventually just break off from heat and wear.
