I called KitchenAid about this issue with my mixer. The agent on the phone told me they are aware that it tends to happen to some mixers after they sit for some time. Basically, a "lifetime" of grease has been packed into the assembly and it is normal for it to release grease on occasion. I was told to run the mixer at 10 for at least 2 minutes to get it going and I should see a reduction in the oil leak. I had about a tablespoon worth of oil dripping down off the assembly. I was told that if over time it seemed to amount to about 1/4 cup then I should call to see about repairs due to a potentially bad seal. I was also told that the repair for that would most likely NOT cost the same as a new appliance.

Could be a defective motor or speed selection circuit

I had this same problem as well.  The beater was stuck like glue to the rotating arm, and it would not budge with any amount of pressure.  I tried the cooking spray and it did nothing.  But today I put a rag in hot/boiling water and then carefully wrapped it around the top of the beater.  I let it sit for 10 minutes. Then I put the rag in hot water again and repeated the process for about another 5 minutes.  When this was done, I covered the beater in a towel (to protect it) and forcefully tapped (ok... I pounded) it with the flat side of my meat tenderizer (it was all I could use a mallet or hammer).  It took a little bit of work because I had to hammer it from the bottom, then the side, then the top to get the little spoke guided through the shaft.  But it did finally come off.  After cleaning with hot water, I put the beater on again and noticed that it was still a little hard to get on/off.  So, I put a little bit of veg. oil on it, and it seems to be better.  Going forward, I will be sure to clean the top of the beater & arm after each use and then coat it with a little oil to keep from sticking.  Best of luck!

if you believe in ghosts, the fix is to junk it and you get rid of the ghost
it is a problem in the switch or wiring in the machine which can be fixed by an accredited appliance repair shop before the unit becomes alive and when you touch it --you become a ghost

I searched using and only found the corporate manufacturer site:

The return of faulty merchandise procedure is described, but involves the local store which you apparently know about.

Unfortunately, after you tried the local store, I see little alternative to either giving up and buying another model, or trying to contact the Dunelm headquarters instead of the local store to request assistance.

Beaters should have a wire on top side to lock, if missing will not lock. OR if beaters won't go all the way into the unit something might be stock up there to prevent them going deep enough to lock.

Only the maker of the product will have this if it is available.
