The beaters will not stay up in my Oster stand mixmaster. The eject lever will not lock them in. Can it be fixed? Or could it be that I need new beaters because they are worn out and do not fit in


wild guess turn beater as you push in to allow the beater to engage the drive, a little like gears meshing. You should be able to feel it lock into the drive.

I can't get the dough attachment off my Kitchenaid stand mixer. I have tried oil, filling up the bowl with soapy water and letting it stand overnight, pouring teapot after teapot of boiling water ove


Hi Georgette
You need to encourage movement between the beater and the silver shaft it locks on to. There is nothing that you can unscrew to make it easier. Get a can of CRC and try & get it around the silver shaft at the top of the beater plus you should be able to get a bit in that side slot where the beater engages with that driving pin. Rock (twist) the beater side to side and slowly the grip will loosen and you will be able to encourage it off. Once you have it off you will need to clean out the CRC and polish up that silver shaft. Next is the more difficult part, you need to polish up that hole in the beater. What you are trying to do is remove the build up of flour in the hole so that it is pretty much shiny in there again without being significantly bigger than it was originally. I use a rat tail (round) file to do this job, you are just removing the darker build up in there. When done a good wash and dry and it will be like new again. Keep the hole clean of flour and it may not happen again.

Cannot remove the flexi beater


I have read on other posts that it is the nut at the top of the beater that is causing the problem. You need to rotate it downwards toward the beater in order to have sufficient room to push and rotate the beater out. This didn't work for me, nor did attempting to remove the whole plate by undoing the lug beside the beater insert. Now that I have worn the lug and the nut I cannot get it repaired at a Kenwood service specialist as I have attempted the repair myself.
My advice is to go straight to a professional. Whatever they charge it will be cheaper than being stuck with a machine you can only use some of the time and have to replace!

One of my blades is stuck and I can't engage the release


Make sure your Beater can slip in and out of the Beater Shaft
easily. Do not force the beater onto the Shaft if the shaft is bent.
If it cannot be removed easily by hand, use a soft rubber mallet
(not a steel hammer) to slightly tap the beater so it can be moved
up and down the shaft or from side to side. Then you can easily
turn the beater left and remove it from the shaft.

From Kitchenaid Manual:
To Attach 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. Slip beater onto beater shaft and press upward
as far as possible.
5. Turn beater to right, hooking beater over pin on shaft.
6. Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.

How to attach a icecream maker KICA0WH to KitchenAid Artisan Series KSM156 that has a cap on the beater shaft. In the manual it shows how to attach it to the mixer with spring and no spring but does not...


After the bowl has been frozen you attach it to the base. Then you take the part your asking about and attach it where you would put a beater or whip. The trick is to make it spin and the notched part stay in the "center of the circle". You don't use the top front of the mixer. I had to practice without the bowl and beater bar to make sure I had it right.

I have a grey film on my flat metal beater anyway to remove?


Gray film may be a result of tarnishing. The metal beaters are made of a burnished aluminum material. The burnished aluminum may not be washed in a dishwasher, cannot be left to soak in a sink, and must be towel dried immediately after washing as opposed to being air dried. If this has been done incorrectly, this may lead to tarnishing of the beater, which can be described as a "grey film."

How to disassemble Black & Decker MX50 PowerPro Mixer


You can remove the handle-back by gently prying the rear clips down and away. But the problem is the power boost button; it has a fork that goes down the left side and snaps over a micro-switch. You need to get that off since there is not room for all 3 buttons (eject, variable speed, and boost) to slide through the handle. A small probe inserted from the top and pushing on the left side to the rear might do it. Or just pry the boost switch upwards; that's how I got mine apart. My problem was the boost microswitch was bad and provided a poor connection. As a result, the beater only ran intermittently on regular switch positions. I solved it by bypassing the boost micro switch. The beater now only runs on the regular speeds but that's fine by me.

Good luck!
