Question about KitchenAid K45SS Classic Stand Mixer
The paddle mixes fine, then when I go to remove it, it won't push up. The spring seems fine. I had to use a hammer to make it go up and a screwdriver to make it move over. I have a lift head standard KitchenAid 5 qt. mixer. The mixer is four years old. I use it a few times a month.
When you are able to remove the paddle, feel the opposite side of the spindle. It should be smooth. The pin should not stick out the back at all. Carefully, tap it in until it is even with the spindle. That will fix you up, unless the pin itself is also damaged. If so, get a small file and remove any burrs from where the paddle mounts.

Turn screw (A) SLIGHTLY counter clockwise (left) to raise the flat
beater or clockwise (right) to lower the flat beater
2. Check the Beater Shaft (Agitator Shaft) making sure the Retaining ring
is flushed with the surface of the Planetary Assembly
Constant Pulling and Removal of the beaters can cause the Agitator shaft to move
3. If the above two still don't solve your problem, follow the service manual
directions to disassemble the Planetary Assembly and check for loose screws
