I have a kitchenaide beater with a flat beater. I can no longer remove the blade. It is the type that you push up and turn. It usually comes off easily, but it is now impossible to push up on the blade. The metal piece with the spring, to which the blade is attached, does not give at all. What can I do?

Re: Cannot Remove Beater from Pedastal
Well theres a couple of things you can do one is to soak the spring and ring in warm water with a dish cloth then take a butter knife and try to pry it up very carefully this usually works the other is to steam it free but that is very time consuming.

You need to lock the blades from turning and undo the bottom clutch drive in such a way as you do not damage it. I use an old motor clutch drive to undo them myself. It has a left hand thread and a block of wood to hold the blade. Then you can remove the blade with shaft from the brass bush to clean and lubricate it. If the brass bush has moved up in the plastic housing you need to press/bang it down again. Then reassemble. If you wreck the clutch drive on the blade you will need to buy a new blade assy if it is separate to the beaker, if not you will need a beaker and blade unit complete.
you are using your KitchenAid blender and it stops blending, you may think there is a problem with the motor in your machine. However, a common reason for the blades not rotating in the blender is a dirty or faulty coupler. The coupler is what connects your blender dispenser to the motor, and you can easily replace the coupler at any time by only using a screwdriver. Things You'll Need
Turn the blender dispenser clockwise and lift up to remove it. Set the blender dispenser aside.
Insert a flat-blade screwdriver between the black drive coupler and the frame of the blender on the top center portion of the blender.
Lift the screwdriver upward, and the coupler will start to bend out of place. Slightly turn the coupler and then lift up on the screwdriver again.
Continue to move the coupler slightly and lift the screwdriver until the coupler is completely removed.
Insert the new coupler over the blender's motor blade and then twist the coupler counter-clockwise until it is tightly fastened.
Yes their is a gasket. However try to tied the hole blade kit a litle harder since it might be loose, it might be also dirty you can loose it clean it and put it back.
Have a visual insections since the glass might be broken a litle bit also.
Leaking of oil in a stand mixer is not necessarily indicative of a large problem.
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.
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.
