It sounds like either a partly stripped gear or a broken driving pin. If it is one of those options though I'm surprised it has not stopped completely.

There is a little spring clip where the beater is inserted. Disasemble and use some pliers or such like to gently squeeze the clip closed a little. Be careful not to close it up too much.

It's from the early 70's and willbe grouped with the MM model of mixers. Here is a manual from the next model after your's;

one of two issues:
-either it has started pulling more amps than needed after many years of faithful service, or
-you now have something else plugged into the same circuit that is causing the circuit to trip

in either case, you will need an electrician to inspect and verify with multimeter (unless you know how to do so yourself). try unplugging any new items you may have purchased since just before the issues started

The fall probably damaged the speed control switch, leading to eventual failure.switch

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...
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

It seems from your question that your hinge pin may be loose and this is why the head keeps shaking. Please see the link below for a help video on your hinge pin:

I have added below our super hinge pin link if you are interesting in purchasing one:

I hope this helps you!

There is a Triac that controls the speed. It is probably short circuit. A qualified Electronics engineer with mechanical skills can repair it. Probably a BT139-600.

If it's just the wire beater attachment, then it's possible it's oxidation from the metal/aluminum. Did you put it in the dishwasher? The manual says not to put the wire beater in the dishwasher. Hope that helps.
