To Remove Flat Beater, Wire Whip or Dough Hook
1. Turn speed control to OFF.
2. Unplug stand mixer or disconnect power.
3. Tilt motor head back.
4. Press beater upward as far as possible and turn left.
5. Pull beater from beater shaft.
If the beaters are stored on the shaft of the mixer when not in use, food traces can harden and make mixer attachments difficult to remove. Should this occur, wrap a hot, damp towel around the shaft to heat and expand the area. A small amount of cooking oil sprayed around the shaft may also help. After the beater has been removed, thoroughly clean the beater shaft area with a small brush to remove any food residue.

Hi. Your mixer needs to be serviced, have old grease and oil removed, parts cleaned, then re assembled with new grease. Remove the tapered-pin from the planetary gear, remove planetary gear, clean lubricate and re install. Chevron FM ALC EP-2 is a "Food Grade" lubricant, meaning that it's safe for human consumption if it accidentally gets into food. There are no seals, only bushings. The existing bushings will hold back the new grease. The oil has separated from the base of the grease. If you don't use your mixer very often, start it up about once a week to keep the grease properly mixed.
If you'd like more info on your mixer goto kitchenaid.com, look up your model # download the PARTS drawings. Use these drawings to re-assemble and to determine if you need any replacement parts. Be prepared to wait at least a month for your parts to arrive.

Hi Gail. Kitchenaid no longer has a Parts List for your model. This means that they consider it obsolete. Do an Internet search for parts. You may get lucky. Good luck!

A number of attachments were available for the 4C, such as a juicer, a meat grinder, etc., all of which ran off the PTO on the front of the housing. The only beater, however, was the wire one. No dough hook was ever made. I have been told that the motor didn't have the necessary power to run a dough hook.

If it's gumming up, the dough is too wet and needs to be dried out more by adding flour. The right consistency dough is such that if you tear off a small piece and then tear it in half and squeeze it back together with your fingers it should stick back together but not stay stuck to your fingers. If it stays stuck to your fingers it's too wet and needs more flour. If it is crumbly, it's too dry and needs more water.
