I removed the motor assembly from the mixer. This left the stand assembly. The raising lift arm had to be removed by unscrewing the set screw, and then the lift arm was removed. I replaced the plastic arm bowl lift by sliding it over the lift arm, and then I had to remove the spring with a clip washer with the pliers, and replaced the spring back on to the new part. Total time about ten minutes for the actual fix, and about 45 minutes remove and reinstall the 12 screws that held the motor in place. It was well worth my efforts. The mixer arm works perfectly now.
