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

Why not just buy a power converter for the mixer and other electronics on Amazon. They are cheap and can be adjusted for
110 - 240 and can be used anywhere in the world.

I had this same problem as well. The beater was stuck like glue to the rotating arm, and it would not budge with any amount of pressure. I tried the cooking spray and it did nothing. But today I put a rag in hot/boiling water and then carefully wrapped it around the top of the beater. I let it sit for 10 minutes. Then I put the rag in hot water again and repeated the process for about another 5 minutes. When this was done, I covered the beater in a towel (to protect it) and forcefully tapped (ok... I pounded) it with the flat side of my meat tenderizer (it was all I had...you could use a mallet or hammer). It took a little bit of work because I had to hammer it from the bottom, then the side, then the top to get the little spoke guided through the shaft. But it did finally come off. After cleaning with hot water, I put the beater on again and noticed that it was still a little hard to get on/off. So, I put a little bit of veg. oil on it, and it seems to be better. Going forward, I will be sure to clean the top of the beater & arm after each use and then coat it with a little oil to keep from sticking. Best of luck!

To Attach Flat Beater,Wire Whip, or Spiral Dough Hook, simply
1. Slip flat beater on beater shaft.
2. Turn beater to right, hooking beater over the pin on shaft.
