Question about KitchenAid K45SS Classic Stand Mixer
The mixer attachment is stuck on. i cannot twist it or push the attachment up (against the spring) to loosen and twist. i've tried soaking in water, thinking some batter or dough might have gotten inside the attachment and dried, but to no avail. it is hard to leverage the attachment without the whole gearhead rotating. Anyway to lock the gearhead?
As far as locking the gearhead, no, at least not without taking the planetary off of the mixer shaft. You would have to take the chrome ring loose by prying down gently, and there is a pin holding the planetary to the shaft, a punch would need to be used to drive it out, then you should be able to work it off the shaft and make the whole planetary easier to work on. The only other thing you could do would be to use a penetrant spray, wd-40 or something similar, let it settle into the attachment area, and try some more, sometimes it just takes time, and repeated application to free up.
