Question about KitchenAid Food Mixers
What you need to check is going to depend on the model. No point me attempting to help without knowing what one it is. If it has a back cover held on by a single cross head (philips) screw then very likely the solution will be under there. When plugged in there is live power there so be aware ***** is not far away if you plan on messing about while it's live.

Check your Brushes or bushings or whatever there called ) those little black things on the side of your mixer above the speed selector and the up/down switch) Check to see if they have started to wear down then i recommend taking it in for service. Good Luck!

SOURCE: Kitchenaid stand mixer oil leak
Hi. The grease that your mixers are lubricated with has reached a stage where the oil is leaching away from the grease. All your machines need this grease changed. Shell Darina EP-2 or Chevron FM ALC EP-2. These machines need to be internally cleaned and re-greased. It's important to remove the oil from any place that it drips. The planetary gear must be removed, cleaned and re-greased also. It's a messy job, but you can do it yourself if you're familiar enough with machinery. If not, then a suitable service outlet can easily do it.
If you choose to do it, go to the Kitchenaid website and locate the parts files for your particular model, these drawings will assist greatly with the project. If you can, take digital photos at every step of dis-assembly as a reference for re-assembly. If this solution assists you, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45

It sounds like something is obstructing it or the lever is bent. You will need to take the head apart to investigate further.

if the head wobbles on stand, flip mixer upside down, and tighten the pivot pin screw way deep down inside stand. you will need a long flat blade screwdriver. it's probably loose.
