Oster Regency kitchen center question

I got a deal on a lightly used Oster Regency kitchen center. I had it apart and back together, but now I want to use it and I cannot get the mixer part to tilt back so I can remove the beaters and bowl in order to attach the meat grinder attachment. I'm using the lever system on the back of the mixer unit but it seems to be not working because the beaters are on, but I can't get them off.....see what I mean? I do not have the manual so I can't double check how it is supposed to work.

Can you help me?

    Push up on the brown lever located underneath the arm. To lower the arm again, push in on the upper part of the brown lever located at the end of the arm. Hope this helps.

Look under the mixing head on the bowl side. There's a square "tab" that looks like the one on the back side of the machine. Pull it towards the bowl to release the mixer head from the base.

I just got one from a yard sale.... Had same problem, until I figured out that I needed to depress the plastic release button. Here's how to find it: underneath the mixer, the plastic is divided into two parts, the place where you insert the beaters and the section that is closer to the hinge. From the upright position, find the section closer to the hinge and press UP. This will release the head to you can tilt it.

As ladyphotobug said, push on the brown lever located underneath the arm, near where the beaters install. It doesn't really look like a lever and I had the same frustrating experience until I grabbed the unit in different way and accidentally pushed where I needed to push.

This is really frustrating until you realize that all you have to do is lightly pry the lock off the beater side of the head attachment. I mean, on the inside where the top (the part for running the mixer) attaches, you need to just pull out a little on the hook that holds that side on and it will release. It not only releases, but it will hold itself up there while you do whatever you have to do.

I thought I got gyped, but I finally figured this one out. It's clumsy, but I'm finally getting used to it. When using the dough hook, too, I found I have to spin the little turntable thingy (the motor part that attaches to and turns the gears on the head) before starting, or its seems to do a wierd thing. If you use the dough hooks and they go all wierd, stop and release the head and see if you can spin those gears (not on the head but on the base).

I hope this helps.

To raise the mixer portion, there is a large flat button on the bottom near the forward latch. pressing this will allow you to raise the mixer without disengaging the unit completely.

In order to use the food processor or blender you need to remove the mixer head by pushing in the lever on the side and the lever underneath the mixer. The attachments sit inside the cogs that turn the mixer.

Oster regency parts


There are all kinds of Oster Kitchen Center parts and attachments for sale on Ebay. Here is another site that sells Regency parts: http://www.Goodman's.net

Can you help me with my Regency problem? I bought a used one with the hopes of using a lot of the attachments including a meat grinder (did not come with), but now after receiving the OKC there is no hole in the side of the mixer arm to attach the grinder - there is a metal circle. Do I need to punch out this circle - like an electrician does with an electrical box? HELP

Oster Kitchen Center won't hold a steady speed


My wifes Oster Kitchen Center slowed down and I think finally stopped. I say I think it did because I took it apart two years ago and am finally finding the time to get it back together. I cleaned it, checked the brushes on the motor(all of this is in the base unit with the control buttons on it. The upper blender/beater arm has no electrics in it.) The brushes were coated with some kind of dried crusty stuff which was keeping them from contacting the motor.I put it back together and tried it but it only hummed and did not move.
I took it apart again, this time everything came out. Motor, electric wiring plus the metal gearbox attached to the motor which drives the blender and the upper arm. I took the transmission apart (it's attached to the motor in the base unit) and found the gears in it were so gummed up with who knows what. Probably everything that leaked out of the blender.
You see, what happens is that the seal between the blender black base and the glass jar started to leak after a few years but we don't notice it. Maybe we did but we cleaned it and we thought it was all good. But the liquid can leak down into the bottom unit around the drive teeth and that little square drive that the blender locks onto. And then it goes into the gearbox and the motor. So it is a major job to clean it. Since I don't have a manual for disassembling the lower base unit, I'm just putting it back together. I cleaned all the gunk out, put some grease on the gears and the gearbox is working better but I fear not perfect. It is 30 years old!! So unless you take it apart yourself or find an appliance repair shop (is there such a place anymore?) it might not be worth the effort. But it is do-able. How long have you got?
