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.
You have broken the intermediate gear in the head. This gear can be a bit of a problem to change. Here is the parts manual for the KSM150PS. The part is probably #6, worm gear. Check with Kitchenaid on where to buy parts.
each have adjustable heights. to adjust the height you need to loosen
the bolt at the top with a 14mm spanner. If the bolt was loose when it
was being used then it can get too short and not leave enough clearance
between the bolt and the machine in order to push up and turn to release
the implement. If this happens take the open ended spanner, grasp the
implement and rotate the spanner clockwise (when looking up at the
machine from below. Once the nut is loose rotate the implement until
there is enough clearance to remove it normally.
The model number doesn't really exist other than the fact that the stainless steel bowl is available for just about every Chef made. My own KM300 has a stainless steel bowl for example that came as standard - it however is the same bowl you can order from Kenwood or EBay under the A701/A901 model - all bowls from Kenwood can be fitted on the Chef model with the exception of the Major model which is a larger and taller machine.
Hi. Is it possible that some of the dough or flour you are mixing has made it's way into the attachment point with each batch, and therefore gumming it up progressivley ? Carefully lay the mixer on one side, being carefull not to lay it on the side mixer controls. Use a rolled up towel to support the head, this will make it easeir to see the attachment point. If there's a buildup of flour, wet it with warm water and a little liquid soap, until it softens, remove the attachment and clean the areas of contact. Apply a bit food oil to the hook before using next time.
Re: your second mixer The head locking pin may also have flour in it. This would inhibit the movement of the locking mechanism along it's guides. You may have to do some disassembly to get it cleaned out. After cleaning put a drop of regular oil on the moving parts. Be sure to clean the recess that the pin fits into as well.
If that's not your problem, then the pin may be worn enough to not fully engage.
