    Help!

    I'm trying to attach the flathead beater and the "pin" won't go in - the pin that usually pushes in and allows the beater to go up, then you turn it slightly to get it to stay. The pin just won't push in. Does anyone know what I need to do?

    Thanks! Ruth

    In my mixer, the pin doesn't go in. I have to line up the notch with the pin, slide it into the highest position, then turn it to hold it in position.

    I have had that happen with my mixer on occasion. It usually has food or something that has dried on the little spring. I take a cloth rinsed in very hot water and wipe it all the way around. Then apply a "drop" of vegetable oil and wipe again with hot cloth. Work the spring mechanism by hand a few times and that usually does it. Then try your attachment again. Hopes this helps.
