Guide :Food Mixers : K45SS Classic Stand Mixer
Paddle beater won't push up and turn to release
The paddle mixes fine, then when I go to remove it, it won't push up. The spring seems fine. I had to use a hammer to make it go up and a screwdriver to make it move over. I have a lift head standard KitchenAid 5 qt. mixer. The mixer is four years old. I use it a few times a month.
