Adjust the head height, tilt the head back and look into the hinge area from the front over the top of the bowl. Undo that slottedscrew you can see in the middle of the hinge a quarter turn at a time until it stops scraping.

There is a problem in the planetary, there is wear or lack of lubrication causing wear in something in that area. Replacing the planetary is not a big or expensive job.

Hiya,

I am sorry to hear you are having an issue with your machine! To solve this problem, you will need to remove the drip ring from your mixer and give it a good clean, this should stop the grease leaking.

I hope this helps you! :)

Pull the back off and there will be two screws at the top of the Speed Control Plate and a 3rd screw at the bottom. Tighten the top two screws down. bakerboy49203@yahoo.com. Let me know if it works.

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!

Tip the machine upside down on a towel, centralise the hinge pin and tighten the grub screw that locks it into place. This is right up inside the pedestal, there is only one screw there to see.
Now stand it up and fit the mixing bowl & flat paddle, turn the machine on speed one, if the paddle is tinging on the bowl then we now need to set the head height. Turn the motor off.
Raise the motor up and from the front of the machine look in by where the motor hinges on the pedestal. You can see one screw head there. If it's tinging the bowl then you need to turn the screw anti clockwise enough so that the paddle no longer tings on the bowl.
Once it's stopped tinging put it onto max speed and make sure it still clears at high speed, if not turn the screw until it stops tinging. That's it.

the motor brushes are worn out and the bushes are worn allowing it to "pole "out
the fix is a replacement unit

You need new planetary gears in the head. Did you make a lot of bread in it, or heavy doughs? It wears them down. Contact them for professional service.

Get a round file and gently rasp it out, you are trying to remove the build up in the hole not rasp the metal away. Flour dust gets in the hole and embeds itself into the soft metal of the dough hook. Also clean the shaft if you can see any dark patches on it. The shaft is good quality steel so you can use fine sandpaper on it without really removing any metal. It's not uncommon for a paddle or a hook to become frozen onto the shaft from flour dust getting in there while mixing. The first time I encountered it I had trouble convincing myself the flour was the problem, I've seen enough of them now to know that's what it is.

If it is the worm gear then the planetary will stop turning when there is a load on the paddle but the motor will continue to run at the speed you set it at. I'd be checking the carbon brushes, checking that the field assembly has not loosened up a bit and then I would see if the speed control plate adjustment screws are loose. I'd then reset the speed and see if it stays as it should be.
