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.

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.

I seem to have lost the instruction manual for my mixer. I would like to use the immersion blender, but I can't figure out how to attach it to the mixer body. The shaft on the blender is too short to...

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.

Kitchen aid--heavy duty mixer

The beater is held in place by a pin and spring arrangement. Lift and twist the beater. If that doesn't work, the pin is trying to come out...and is wedging against the beater. Tap the pin back in a bit, and the beater should release.

Bottom Slide Cover (Part 2a in the manual)

See the description for the speed problem and repositioning of the slidere at this link. The slider should snap back in place easily if everything is ok. The slider also operates a switch inside the mixer. This switch is intended to only allow you to run on full power when using the hand blender. You may need to open up the mixer to check this switch is not stuck in the activated position permanently. Otherwise consider the description of the speed problem in the link.
