We purchased a used A200 at auction, works great, but my daughter who is using it said the bowl lift needs to be lubricated, I downloaded the manual for this mixer and it does say it needs to be lubed 1xmonth, but doesn't say what with. What kind of lubricant do we use? Colleen

The problem is in your lift handle cams, you need to take the pedistal apart and clean and grease all the cams. I take them apart and wire brush them and use white lithium grease to keep them from freezing up.
You may be correct about a loose spring. Check this:
Carefully lay the mixer on its back side to access the bottom of the mixer. Remove the cover screen covering the opening in the bottom of the mixer. Using an extension and appropriate socket, be sure the nut of the bowl lift rod is snug, slightly compressing the spring of the bowl lift rod.
most of the times it is because of build up between lift handle and pedestle case use wd-40 and even some heat from a torch to help loosen up stuck handle. also wd-40 the ways on the mixer ped. where the bowl yoke is
you need to remove splash shield, tilt mixer back,with a long screwdriver adj. the set screwclockwise to decrease clearance for beater to bowl clearance,always use b beater when making adj. clearance should be .054" to .115".also make sure there are no deformities in btm of bowl which can cause you problems.dont forget to vote
If it hits the bowl its been dumped on the side and bent it. I have done this on sight I get a mapp torch and use a pipe wrench large one and heat it up at the bend where it goes in side and bend it out. or you can buy a new one take the head off four bolts under head and one roll pin inside easy to see and replace arm. The bending is quick and cheap. it will work like new be sure and clean and luber slides wd where it goes in neck.
amy, depending on how old your mixer is there are 2 types of clutches for 1st gear.these could be your problems--a key is sheared on the shaft--shaft/gear is broken.the bottom part of the mixer where you put on the attachements is called the planetary,does it look like it has moved down?you could tell if the dough hook,wire whip,ect,ect is hitting the bottom of the bowl.if this is the case its just simply tightening the 2 nuts next to the beater shaft.if this is not the case you would have to dissasemble the transmission.let me know.
