Blade is stuck in shaft of kitchen aid

Get some CRC around the shaft and into the beater hole and wriggle it about until it comes free. Rasp the build up in the beater hole out with a round file and clean up the shaft on the mixer. Remember you are cleaning out the hole not trying to make it bigger than it was. In my experience it is a build up of flour in there bonding itself to the hole in the aluminium beater.

Beater is stuck

I had this happen on my Kitchen Aid mixer. There is probably a build up of dough/cake mix etc inside the hole where the beater fits into. Fill a mixing bowl or a jug deep enough to fit over beater with very hot or boiling water. Immerse the stuck beater in the water up to where it connects in to the mixer and hold for about minute. Once the hot water has melted the build up you should be able to remove the beater. Hopefully this may work on your brand of mixer.

Old classic Kitchen Aid (25+), new KA-TH beater bar and suddenly the bowl is getting knocked off the mount when making cookie dough. Is it the new beater, the base or something else?

Adjust the head height, with the motor raised look in where it hinges. There is a flat head screw there, anti clockwise a bit to raise the head up a bit and stop it banging about on the bowl. Just enough to stop it.

Cant seem to get the mixer attachment off its well and truley stuck tried all the suggestions in the instruction manuel but it just wont budge help!!!

The best way is to wrap a hot towel around the beater head, you have to get it hot to melt the "Gunk" that is acting like glue, I have actually had to use a torch once or twice, you can polish the stainless steel up again but you have to keep it away from the powder coated finish or it will bubble up and ruin the finish. The best but longest way is a hair dryer and a squirt gun, get it hot squirt it heat again, do it once or twice usually loosens it up and you can get the beater off, once you do use a non stick spray in the beater head before you use it and do not ever leave your beater on the mixer in the future.
