Question about Food Mixers
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?
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.
