Leaking oil in the point of the mixer

You can try running the mixer at high speed for a few minutes to try to blend the grease in the gearcase. If this does not work, then cleaning out the old grease and repacking with new is the solution.
Assuming you have a 4.5 quart tilt head, a 5 quart lift bowl (not the professional series), or an Artisan, the Service Manual you need is at:

Loud squeek when beginning mixing with KitchenAid bowl-lift stand mixer does it need oiling?

I removed the beater to bowl screw. how do i fix it?

Hi Mary, There is no such thing as a beater to bowl screw. If you screw the beater to the bowl then it cannot turn without also turning the bowl. Here's a link to an exploded view

Handle is very difficult to move to get bowl to raise and lower. Any suggestions on repairing this?

thats because there debris between the bowl yoke and ways. use wd-40 to loosen up you might even need some heat to aid youkeepmoving and spraying, after yoke is freed, use a food grade grease on the ways to prevent binding. dont forget to vote

Hobart D300 Mixer: Has no torque and no speed in any gear

You have a gear with broken teeth or one sliding out of place because the brass shims are eaten up. Hobarts have what is called a planetary, round head where the grease caps are, and there are no clutches for this planetary. These units are not made to change gears while unit is running (#1 problem of gear failure) (#2 is overloading the bowl) Hobarts need a really stiff GREASE, not oil. If you decide to take the planetary apart, get all the syrup out and replace with a stiff axel grease. It is a very difficult job replacing a gear & ALL the shims. The round head where the grease caps are can easily be removed to do this.

Hobart Mixer bowl won't go up

If the worm screw is turning but not lifting the bowl, the bowl lift nut is stripped.
H600 part number is 24198.
To change it, you need to undo the screws down the right side yoke slide to release the yoke. You will need to lift the yoke to reach some of them. If you have some wood place it under the yoke and over the legs to protect the paint. On top of the yoke are two blots holding the keeper plate over the nut. One is the stop screw for bowl height. Don't loose this setting. remove the slide, edge the yoke forward a bit to free the worm. Run the old nut down the worm and off the bottom. When you run the new nut on, all the excess grease and metal shavings will start to build up. Clean as you go, or better still, brush with solvent or similar to clean the worm threads . relubricate, run the nut up above the yoke, reload the yoke and attach keeper plate, reload slide.
To adjust slide, snug screw near bottom keeping slide close to yoke, run yoke to top and tighten top screw just enough to hold slide in place, lower yoke to bottom, gently tap top of slide in a 1/16" and tighten top screw. Run yoke to top of slide. It should start to bind slightly in the last 2 inches of travel, which will stop the bowl from dropping in use. Tighten remaining screws.

Beaters don't reach the bottom of the bowl

There is an adjuster on the model I own - the KSM50... It is a tiny little silver screw at the base of the motor between the screws that mount the bowl mover to the stand. Screwing to the left makes the bowl lower and turning to the right makes the bowl higher. I just adjusted mine. Note - just a slight turn can make a difference, but my screw was SO TIGHT- I had to ask my husband to do it. Plus, it is located in a difficult area for some screwdrivers to fit into. He got mine to budge and now my clearance of beater to bowl ratio is perfect.

:) Hope it works for ya,
