Put the big one in a sink of hot water, when it expands first you may be able to lift out the smaller one.

My bowl gets stuck. It is extremely difficult to unscrew from the base. It's like it is getting tighter and tighter while it mixes

Well you will be happy to know that it is only a matter of "Wear and Tear" The culprit can be one of two possible things. The screw cup on the mixer or the bowl itself. Understand that...the metal on the bowl or mounting cup are pressed or what you might call metal stamping. When you use the bowl and the mixer over time the metal wears down and or compresses and it takes more pressure from you when you seat the bowl for use and the pressure created by the use of the mixer when the bowl is in place is caused because the locking cup and bowl screw together the same way that the mixer turns and cookie batters or bread dough help to lock the bowl tighter and tighter. Now that you know the reason how do you fix it?? Well the screw cup is the easiest and least expensive. Just order one off the internet and when it arrives unscrew the three retaining screws and put the new one on. If that doesn't fix it then you may have to consider a new bowl. Hope that helps.

Kitchenaid mixer glass bowl broke. I need a replacement. I have a 4c mixer. Do you know where I can find one?

The glass bowl for the 4c mixer is much different than the bowls that are currently available. Your best option is going to be to find a used bowl off of eBay.

Your other option would be to replace the bowl lock plate and buy a new bowl for the mixer. I have had a few customers say this works, and I have had a couple say that replacing the bowl lock plate and bowl did not work. So you can give this a try as well.

Kitchenaid bowl

Some might say that this is OK, because it can be a bear sometimes to unlock it from it's mixing position, but I am thinking that is not the case here. First do you use a glass or metal bowl. if you use a glass bowl you have a grey mounting screw on the bottom of it that can come loose, if so tighten it up and you should be right as rain, if you are using a metal bowl then it is one of two things, first the bowl has been damaged in such a way that it does not fully engage the mounting cup / plate on the base of the mixer or the mounting plate has taken the damage, look at it carefully to see where the damage is, if it is in the mounting cup on the base it's easy to fix and inexpensive, if it is on the bowl then it's a new bowl and that can be 50-60 bucks for a new bowl. let us know if this helped, if not try to be more specific. Don't be insulted but you may not be locking the bowl in place all the way either. happens to me all the time when I am baking, I don't turn it all the way in.

Mixer beaters clanging together

The beaters might be fixable/replaceable but the bowl not spinning anymore is the more serious of the 2 problems. If this is several years old iit probably is more cost efective/simpler to replace the whole unit.

KitchenAid stand mixer is leaking alot of oil

ok, there are 4 skrews holding the body together on its white underside( or what ever color you have.) after you get those there are like 9 or 10 little skrews under a shiny rig that goes around the shaft that does all the work in the bowl. pull the ring off and take out those skrews. after that... well i have to find out for myself how to fix the oil leak! good luck and if you find out let me know! BTW here is a link to the service manual.
