The grease inside has liquefied instead of being a paste. This can happen by over heating the mixer, keeping near a heat source or a bad gasket. I suggest getting it repacked with grease and replacing the gasket before you start to ruin the gears.

Also the grease although not something you'd consider edible is food safe.

Why is oil leaking down into the mixing bowl on the Hobart HL200 Mixer


There is a leaking gasket. The OIL is from the Grease applied to the gears. It may have somewhat turned a portion of lube to a liquid state due to heat within the motor housing during use. The OIL as you put it, could also leak out from the port where you insert the beaters. If so there is also a set of seals to prevent that from happening, and if they are worn or damaged, leaking can occur. This unit needs a professional serviceman to fix the problem.

The beater will not come off and it's leaking oil


These are two separate problems.
The beater is probably being held on by dried/solidified flour. Try keeping the section where the beater joins the mixer head wet with water to loosen up the dried "glue." (Give it some time.)

The oil leak is caused by the grease separating. You can try running the mixer on high for a few minutes to re-mix the grease. If this does not correct things, you will need to clean out the old grease from the gearcase and replace it with new. See the Service Manual at:

How to Fix KitchenAid Stand Mixer That Is Leaking Oil

Apr 04, 2014 | Food Mixers

1 Answer

I cannot remove the mixer attachment from the mixer. It will not move, or twist to the side to release.


Use a small amount of vegetable oil to lubricate the beater shaft and
the beater. Slightly tap the beater up and sideways with a rubber mallet
until you can move the beater easily along the shaft.

Leaking oil


There are only two places where Food Grade Grease is used: In the
Transmission Housing (normally installed with a gasket) and in the Planetary
Assembly (Agitator gear). Over times, the grease will get hot and turn into liquid.
The Beater shaft has an O-ring to prevent oil from leaking down, but there is
nothing to prevent oil from the Planetary from making its way down your mix.
Depending which model you have, it's time to open up your mixer, clean out
all the oil and replace it with fresh Kitchenaid Food Grade Grease.

2349 Stand Mixer - Beaters now hit each other


The beaters can be retimed but, you have to open the mixer. There are 2 gears visible inside the head. Look closely for arrows or dots on the gears. These are the timing marks. Like marks should be placed exactly opposite each other on the work gear. (The spiral shaped gear) Look at the notches where you put the beaters. One will be lined up straight, the other will be at 45 degrees. While you have it opened, you might want to regrease it. Remove the old grease with a stick or small narrow screwdriver. Put vaseline or equivalent in the gear area. Only fill it about half way. If you over fill it, it will leak out when you get it hot from long or heavy use.

KitchenAid wobbles when mixing


The "wobbling" sounds like an issue of beater to bowl adjustment, which can come out of alignment naturally over time and with use of the machine.

If the flat beater is striking the bottom of your bowl, this may cause the locking mechanism to loosen and may cause the mixing head to "bounce" during use.

Your Use and Care Guide will cover the "beater to bowl adjustment," which you can do at home in a few minutes with a flathead screwdriver.

Also, leaking of oil in a stand mixer is not necessarily indicative of a large problem.

Kitchenaid stand mixers are overpacked with oil to last the lifetime of the motor. If the motor sits idle for some time (is not used), the oil may begin to drip from the gears and settle. Oil leakage may primarily be seen from around the beater shaft or planetary action.

A stand mixer can lose up to a 1/4 cup of oil before it needs to be serviced.

It is recommended to run the mixer on speed 10 for 2 minutes in order to redistribute oil back into the motor. In order to prevent future occurences, this is recommended to be done every 3 weeks if mixer is not being used.

K45SS leaks lubricant


I went to Kitchen Aid'sKitchen Aid's web site and had an on line chat with a tect support person name Jessica. She told me that if the mixer is not used a small of oil will leak out. to fix the problem you must run the mixer for a few minutes every month or so. This seems to work.
