Question about KitchenAid Artisan Series Tilt-Head Stand Mixer
Is this a new beater that you just bought? Or is it the same beater you have had? When you adjust the screw, which way are you turning the screw, how much is it hitting the bowl?
If the beater is too close to the bowl the adjustment screw should be turned in. If the threads on the screw are loose the screw needs to be replaced.
Page 17 and 21 both show how to adjust the head of the mixer so the beater his the bowl correctly. Here is a link to the service manual: http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/mendingshed/kitchenaidservicemanual.pdf
Please let me know if you have any questions.

The adjustment screw did work for me but I adjusted using the dough mixer instead of Flat Head mixer as specified (only-realized after reading the manual ;o).
After readjusting using the correct flat head, everything is happy again.
- manual, I don't need a stinking manual !!! ;o)

SOURCE: the adjustment screw fell off
I know what you are talking about. That tiny screw in the KSM50 model to raise the beaters... there is one. I know what you mean, but I don't know how to tell you to fix it if it doesn't go back in easily. Find someone handy?

SOURCE: beater too low-will not lock
I would check the bottom of the beater blades to see if they are out of shape.,or is the base of the mixer raised somehow to cause this problem

SOURCE: beater rubbing bowl
Although I can't find your mixer by the model number you gave me, I assume that your mixer is the kind which the bowl moves up and down not the "tilt-head" style.
See pg. 12 of the owners manual for bowl height adjustment procedure:
There is a screw in the base of the mixer which is turned
clockwise to raise the bowl
and counterclockwise to lower
