To Remove Flat Beater, Wire Whip or Dough Hook
1. Turn speed control to OFF.
2. Unplug stand mixer or disconnect power.
3. Tilt motor head back.
4. Press beater upward as far as possible and turn left.
5. Pull beater from beater shaft.
If the beaters are stored on the shaft of the mixer when not in use, food traces can harden and make mixer attachments difficult to remove. Should this occur, wrap a hot, damp towel around the shaft to heat and expand the area. A small amount of cooking oil sprayed around the shaft may also help. After the beater has been removed, thoroughly clean the beater shaft area with a small brush to remove any food residue.

The k-aid stand mixers do have a tendency to seep oil.
That oil started out as grease but has separated and is probably coming out from around the beater shaft.
Usually just wiping shaft off with a paper towel right before using is sufficient.
Also -the more frequently the mixer is used, the less likely the tendency of the grease to separate.

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 had...you 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!

Hi. Go to kitchenaid.com, talk with a customer service person and ask them the question. They'll be able to tell you where the nearest "authorized" repair place is. Good luck! ricardok45

I can not respond to the warranty issues. My kitchen aid mixer is past warranty as well. I live in a country that uses 220V and my kitchen aid mixer is 110V. I have been using my kitchen aid mixer for almost 4 years with no problems at all.
The converter boxes are supposed to blow the fuse on the converter before it reaches your appliance and cause any problems.
If you purchase a 220V kitchen aid (although it would cost more money) it would probably have more power because of the higher voltage.
Hope this helps!
