Beater hits side of bowl
What part number did you order for the beater and what is the model number for the mixer? Also is the mixer brand new, or did you get it used and it just started happening?

K-beater is stuck on our Kenwood Chef and we can't remove it
I couldn't remove the K-Beater as when I tried to turn it the whole mechanism turned with it. I couldn't even remove the splashguard! I was going to take it to the Kenwood factory (a few miles from home) but then I thought I'd give it one more go and this is what I did...
- Next to where the K-Beater attaches in the middle of the circular plate is a lug with a pointed-shape bolt on the end. Remove this with a spanner and the beater plus gear cog can be removed.
- Place some mole grips or wide pliers on a worktop and sit the cogged gear in to it and grip so that it won't turn.
- Now you should be able to remove the K-Beater!
Perhaps someone can suggest how to stop it happening again. I haven't attached anything since but will update this post if I have any other helpful tips.

Kitchenaid stand mixer won’t turn off
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.

Hobart 140 Qt Mixer 4 speed. needs the oil changed? what kind of oil to use?
You can use a heavy weight gear oil or call the local hobart branch for it.To remove oil----Look under the mixer where the beater shaft is in the back and you will see a three quarter inch nut,remove this nut and drain the oil then put nut back in.To fill the unit remove the top cover screws and remove the top,you will see a long hexagon nut in length,remove this and grab a funnel then add the oil---be patient it takes time to fill as the oil is heavy.
