I have this problem too -it is rather common if you search the web. There was a suggestion posted on this site about what to do. See http://www.fixya.com/support/t125253-mixer_leaking_oil I have also read about other people taking it to a Kitchen Aid repair place where they repacked the grease for about $45. I took mine apart and there is gobs of grease around the gears. Right now I am still trying to figure out what to do. I am going to have my father look at it to see what he thinks since he is good with motors. The Kitchen Aid web site says that the grease is FDA approved, so at least it's not going to kill you if a little gets in your food. Their suggestion is to take it out and run it for about 5 minutes at least once a week. They say it leaks if it is not used often enough. That logic doesn't make much sense to me, but you could try it. Mine seems to leak more when I run it because the grease heats up and liquifies more. I hope that helps. I'll let you know what happens with mine, once it's fixed. Lisa

SOURCE: blade won't release from mixer

To Remove Flat Beater, Wire Whip or Dough Hook
1.
Turn speed control to OFF.
2. Unplug stand mixer or disconnect power.
3. Tilt motor head back.
4. Press beater upward as far as possible and turn left.
5. Pull beater from beater shaft.

If the beaters are stored on the shaft of the mixer when not in use, food traces can harden and make mixer attachments difficult to remove. Should this occur, wrap a hot, damp towel around the shaft to heat and expand the area. A small amount of cooking oil sprayed around the shaft may also help. After the beater has been removed, thoroughly clean the beater shaft area with a small brush to remove any food residue.

SOURCE: My kitchen mixer tap is dripping from the handle.

almost certainly yes. It is most likely the packing or the handle gaskets. Depending on the brand, there is most likely a kit waiting for you at any decent hardware store. If you tell us the brand and type, we can direct you to the most helpful options. I am a great proponent of DIY, so carry on! :)

My kitchen aid stand mixer is leaking oil were the beaters are. It dose it when using it.


It is just the grease in the gearbox breaking down. It is food grade grease so perfectly harmless. Wipe it away from time to time or pull the mixer apart and change the grease. When the oil stops leaking it will then be necessary to change the grease as it will be getting too thick to do any good in there.

Makes a grinding noise at higher speeds


If it is leaking you are going to have to go inside the gearbox to change the grease so whatever is wrong inside may become obvious when you take it apart. Remove accessory cap from the front and look for any dryish grindings inside there.

Leaking fluid, oil I think around the kitchen aid ring


Bucksmom, Sorry to hear you mixer is 'leaking'... I hate it when that happens. You don't mention how old or what model your KA mixer is? I assume you mean the band around your mixer with the Kitchenaid logo, when you say 'kitchen aid ring.
Your mixer does have an internal gear mechanism (transmission if you will) which converts the electric motors rotation into the mixer rotation and those gears are located within the mixer. The gears were lubricated at the factory, but depending on the age of your mixer and how it is used, it is possible that the grease has leaked beyond the gasket and that is what you are seeing now.
It is possible to disassemble the mixer to determine where the grease is coming from and troubleshoot if anything else might be wrong within the transmission.
Hopefully the leakage is not getting into your food being mixed. Kitchenaid Grease should be 'food grade' grease, but you still don't want to ingest it.
I hope this helps... Howard, Burke, VA

Kitchen aid mixer leaking yellow oil is it repairable it still tu


It can be. This may require replaing the plate that the shaft comes through, since there is now enough play to allow the grease that is in the nead to leak through. You can find the parts online, but be ware, it involves tapping out pins and undoing many screws. Manuals are available online at Kitchenaid.com
