"Tried to take it apart" seems to indicate that you didn't get it apart. If you want to straighten the lever properly that's the only way you are going to get it straight. If there are any other problems they will be revealed during the taking apart process. Back off, pedestal off, planetary off and split the cases.

Honestly the easiest way by far is to put the metal shaft of the new one into a vice and with 2 screwdrivers carefully lever it off and then with a soft hammer tap the knob onto the original shaft. If you want to do it by replacing the whole arm and knob you will have to split the gear cases.

It sounds like it's been seriously damaged. I would suggest taking it to a repair shop.

Try pushing the pin in from the other side, forcing it in is better than making the hole any bigger as a loose pin will allow head wobble when mixing. Get the pin thru the pedestal without the motor, then get the pin through the motor neck then put them together and get the pin thru both parts. You need to have the locking lever in the release position to do this more easily. Make sure the pin isn't damaged on the end. It shouldn't be damaged on both ends unless you've been abusing it.

Sorry, that answer was for someone else. The only things I've seen to cause high speed running are out of adjustment screws at the top or the bottom of your control plate or the phase board. Start point for the top screws is 8 full turns in from being not even in the hole (both sides) and on speed 1 the bottom screw does not even touch that step in the flat rod that activates the switch and moves the control plate.

Have a look and see if the governor has flown apart, that's the brass thing on the end of the armature that activates the contacts on the control plate. Otherwise you are going to need to expand on how old the machine is and exactly what "broken" means.

I just got the same problem too. There was a little piece of fat in the meat and it stopped the grinder. I removed it but the attachment rotates a full turn and then stops. The same happens with other attachments even under practically no load.

Your mixer probably is leaking gear case lubricant.

Generally the problem is only the beaters. They may no longer be aligned in a perpendicular line and are slightly bent, just enough to make them click. You may have to replace the beaters to get satisfaction.

The speed selector may be defective and will have to be replaced.

Simply enter KHM3WH into a search engine (eg Google) and you will find a number of sources for replacement beaters.

The WACEM (We Actually Collect Electric Mixers) web site has a downloadable PDF of the "K5-A, K45 Original Service Manual" in the "files" section.

This can help you figure out what has gone wrong with yours.
