The fuse gear may have failed, if it has your beater will also not drive properly. I'm not familiar with a grater on your model.

Cannot insert grater attachment into front of KitchenAid all the way.

Since I do not have your mixer in front of me, here are my best guesses:

a. It can't happen, but since it does --
b. There is something inside the hub preventing the sttachment's shaft from going in all the way.
c. The square of the hub and shaft are not lined up with each other.
d. There is some sort of damage to the hub interior or to the attachment shaft.
e. The attachment shaft is no longer straight.
f. The thumb screw is now going in at an angle (other than 90 degrees).
I've now run out of ideas.

I can't get the beater released from the shaft. I did exactly what the book said, push up as far as it goes and turn to the left, but it doesn't seem to go far enough.

Get a copy of the Repair Part List for your model at
Constant pushing of the beater onto the Agitator shaft (40) can cause
it to be pushed in too far into the Planetary (33). With the beater in place,
use a rubber mallet to slightly tap the edges of the beater and push the
shaft out until you can see the retaining clip.
Now you have enough clearance on the shaft to push the beater upward
and twist it to remove it.

I seem to have lost the instruction manual for my mixer. I would like to use the immersion blender, but I can't figure out how to attach it to the mixer body. The shaft on the blender is too short to...

The blender does not attach to any of the two holes for the whisks.
You need to push back the sliding cover in the center, bottom part between and behind where the whiskers attach. This will uncover a third attachment possibility, where you insert the blender and twist it a quarter turn into place.

Shaft keeps coming out

tighten the screw under the base that catches the pin. Turn the mixer upside down you can see the flathead screw in the casting. With the pin centered tighten the screw.

When you say lag and catch up. This may not be a issue. I have seen this with dough and a spiral hooks on all sizes of Hobarts the hook and dough get in a position to push the hook forward and the drive gears catch back up the hook. in fist gear on the 20 quart this is common for sure. but its normal. if you have a real slip from a sheared key it will not take long to where you can hold the planetary shaft with your hand and stop it. another slip that might be possible is if your mixer has the first generation worm shaft gear Assembly. when it is worn out it will slip you. this is the shaft that drives directly off the motor. you can tell if it's first Gen by it has a large spring on it. the tow later versions are all keyed to the shaft no chance to slip unless a key shears.

Head of mixer droops

I just fixed mine this moring!!
1- Lift head. In the lifted position you will see the head of an adjusting screw. Turn it to the left say a half turn.
2- Lower head and see if it is still too low. If so, do it again.

I had to turn mine like two plus full turns.
I beleive it goes into a nylon insert so that the threads are cut as the screw is put in the first time. If the screw is too loose, it may be possible that over time the head could slowly drop because of vibration and the screw slowly moving inward again. If that happens, a new nylon insert may be needed (but that is a different story).

There is another screw that may be loose of the head moves too much right and left. I also had that issue. This screw will be seen if you lay the machine on its side and look up the shaft (pedestal) of the base (large empty area the head attaches to). You will see a small screw head (first item up the open part). That set screw holds the unit in position on the hinge pin to stop movement from right and left.
You will find a full service manual in pdf at:

Hope this helps.
