How do you release the mixing parts

If you mean the flat beater whip or dough hook then you grasp the attachment and lift up firmly and rotate the attachment counter clockwise as it is lifted off the planetary mounting pin, then the attachment should just fall off unless you are full of dried "Gunk" then you have to get the shaft and attachment warm to hot and wet to soften the "Gunk" so that the attachment comes loose. I hope this helps if not then get back to us so we can FixYa.

Kitchenaid difficulty removing whisk

It is not uncommon for gunk batter sugar eggs or other stuff to get up inside the attachment shaft of the mixer and if you don't use it for a while it can turn to glue. remember school flour and water = glue. well add some sugar and some eggs and "wallah" you got glue. How to fix? Get a squirt gun. yep fill it with hot water and squirt it up in the hook and loop portion of the attachment shaft let it sit for 5-10 mins and repeat a couple times. the beater should come off, clean the shaft and then the whisk soak the attachment portion in hot water and let soak to soften the gunk and the spray it out with the sink sprayer. hope that helps. There could be one other mechanical problem and that is the hook that the beaters hang on could be coming out and caused the attachment to jam up ther take a pencil or pen and while pressing the beater up see if the pin wiggles or wobble and most importantly goes back into the mounting shaft. let us know if this helps at all.

Unable to get the beaters on/off the mixer -

As you face your mixer with the bowl toward you, on the right side is a lever that will lock the top in place. Unlock the top and tilt the top back. This will give you access to your beaters. Then push up on the beater while turning it either right or left. It only turns one way and I can't remember which way it turns. Then pull it down once you get it to the point where it disengages. Do the reverse to get the beater ON the mixer. Now, here's another thing to consider. If the spring on the column to which the beater attaches is caked with gunk, it will not collapse to give you the flexibility to push the beater up. UNPLUG your mixer and with a stiff brush, clean the spring. A dry OLD toothbrush is excellent...I keep one at my sink at all times. I hope this helps and if it does, please let Fixya know my rating my solution. Good luck and happy mixing.

My mixer is very hard to raise and lower with the handle

tilt head? Loosen the pivot bolt and if you have help, remove and clean the bolt and with some teeny , not too teeney, brush or whateverm clean the pivot bolt holes. Especially the one in the head. With everything nice and clean, find somehigh temp wheel brg grease and lightly coat the pivot bolt. Without assembling, run the bolt through all the holes while rotating to transfer some grease into and onto them . .Like the way the bolt moves now? Good, Put the head in place aligning yhe pivot bolt holes rotating the bolt as you push it in place . Snug down the pivot bolt just enough to keep it in place . If you over tighten it you can break off one of the hole ears on the base. So, since you would see the bolt coming out if it did so choose, DON'T OVER TIGHTEN ;) hAPPY BLENDING- tHE PIVOT BOLT IS STATINARY IN THE STAND AND THE MIXER HEAAD PIVOTS ON THE BOLT.

Have lost some oil out of it in moving, what oil

Hi. The oil you see used to be mixed into the grease base. It's time to change the grease in your mixer. Remove the silver band, Remove the top cover. Remove the transmission cover. Clean out the transmission, remove all grease and oil. Replace with Chevron FM ALC EP-2 grease. This grease is an edible food grade..

Remove the planetary gear, clean and re-grease. If this solution has assisted you, please rate it. ricardok45

Kitchenaid not working. Before it "died" it wouldn't turn off

When an appliance reaches the age that yours has it may be prudent to bite the bullet and purchase a new one. good luck

Black Residue on meat using Kitchenaid meat grinder attachment

This is a common issue with the Kitchenaid food grinder. The black residue is a product of the meat itself.

With Kitchenaid Food Grinder Attachments, it is recommended that the meat be partially frozen before grinding. This is to ensure a quality grind and to make sure the meat holds all its juices while grinding.

If any juices from the meat are leaked into the food grinder, the friction will cause a chemical reaction and turn the juice from the meat into a black substance.

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?
