SOURCE: Kitchenaid stand mixer oil leak
Hi. The grease that your mixers are lubricated with has reached a stage where the oil is leaching away from the grease. All your machines need this grease changed. Shell Darina EP-2 or Chevron FM ALC EP-2. These machines need to be internally cleaned and re-greased. It's important to remove the oil from any place that it drips. The planetary gear must be removed, cleaned and re-greased also. It's a messy job, but you can do it yourself if you're familiar enough with machinery. If not, then a suitable service outlet can easily do it.
If you choose to do it, go to the Kitchenaid website and locate the parts files for your particular model, these drawings will assist greatly with the project. If you can, take digital photos at every step of dis-assembly as a reference for re-assembly. If this solution assists you, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45

Hi DENISE, by the symptoms you describe it appears that
it’s time to adjust your mixer’s Beater to Bowl Clearance adjustment screw, or head
locking mechanism (or a component) of it is worn or loosened due to normal wear
and tear and needs to be readjusted (or repaired) to keep your mixer head
stationery and level.
The instructions for adjusting your beater to bowl clearance are located in your Owners Manual. If you don’t have the original manual you can easily download a PDF version of your Owners Manual from the KA website: (http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home).
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals& Guides> and enter the 6 character model number, in your case KSM150 and select the file listed for your model that appears under Owners Manuals (66) KSM150PSER1.pdf (732.33 KB) and save that file to your PC. Turn to Page 14 and you will find the instructions for adjusting the mixer head height.
But to save you some time, I have extracted the instructions below:
Beater to Bowl Clearance
Your mixer is adjusted at the factory so that the flat beater just clears the bottom of the bowl. If for any reason, the flat beater hits the bottom of the bowl or is too far away from the bowl, clearance
• Unplug mixer.
• Lift motor head.
• Turn screw (A) SLIGHTLY counter clockwise (left) to raise flat beater or clockwise (right) to lower flat beater.
• Make adjustment with flat beater, so it just clears surface of bowl.
If you over adjust the screw, the bowl lock lever may not lock into place.
If the above doesn’t correct your problem, then you need to look at the Link & Lever Latch assembly. If you don’t have your parts list manual, select the file KSM150PSWH0.pdf (773.44 KB) listed under the Parts List Manual (61).
The manual provides an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the part names and numbers. Turn to page5, titled: Base and Pedestal Unit. You’ll want to focus on Illus. #11, Link & Lever Latch assembly, and the related components, which locks the mixer head to the pedestal when you run the mixer. Check to see if something is just loose, exceedingly worn or broken. If something has broken, you can order replacement parts and install yourself.
Here are five potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com. Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
Also, while your mixer is apart it would be ideal to check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the gears, etc. It can be messy but quite gratifying to diagnose and repair your KA mixer yourself.
Finally, here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer.
Finally, if you feel this is beyond your capabilities and will be too difficult to do by yourself you can take your mixer to a local small appliance repair shop and have them troubleshoot and fix your mixer. KA Customer Care can provide you with the name and phone # of the closest authorized KA repair shop in your area or you can do a Online web search, but be sure to get at least three estimates before deciding to commit to one repair shop.
Good luck. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

It could be very easy. It maybe you have a the brush in the
wrong way round or they have simply run out. They are on the sides under the black plastic caps. Although they will fit in the hole any one of 4 ways
round, there is a key on one corner which means it will only go in one
direction. Use a torch to look into the hole before you put it back in.
They shoud look like this : brush

if the head wobbles on stand, flip mixer upside down, and tighten the pivot pin screw way deep down inside stand. you will need a long flat blade screwdriver. it's probably loose.
