Blender attachment stuck on

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.

Kitchenaid difficulty removing whisk


It is not uncommon for gunk batter sugar eggs or other stuff to get up inside the attachment shaft of the mixer and if you don't use it for a while it can turn to glue. remember school flour and water = glue. well add some sugar and some eggs and "wallah" you got glue. How to fix? Get a squirt gun. yep fill it with hot water and squirt it up in the hook and loop portion of the attachment shaft let it sit for 5-10 mins and repeat a couple times. the beater should come off, clean the shaft and then the whisk soak the attachment portion in hot water and let soak to soften the gunk and the spray it out with the sink sprayer. hope that helps. There could be one other mechanical problem and that is the hook that the beaters hang on could be coming out and caused the attachment to jam up ther take a pencil or pen and while pressing the beater up see if the pin wiggles or wobble and most importantly goes back into the mounting shaft. let us know if this helps at all.

Once the blender is attached, how do you start the mixer?


You start it by pushing the switch lever forward, and you need to hold it there for as long as you want it to run. This is a momentary mode and is the only way to run the immersion blender.

Hi
The blender does not attach to any of the two holes for the whisks.
You need to push back the sliding cover in the center, bottom part between and behind where the whiskers attach. This will uncover a third attachment possibility, where you insert the blender and twist it a quarter turn into place.

Whisk attachment is stuck on mixer.


I took a small crowbar, and put the curved end up inside the whisk, and hammered the other end lightly. After about 20 taps, the peg was lined up with the sideways opening so I could twist it off. When I got it off, it looked like there was either flour inside the part where the whisk attaches, or some light corrosion was going on. Either way, I'm going to put a little grease in there so it doesn't happen again.
