Our KitchenAid Artisan 5-qt. Stand Mixer with Sku#: 06373165 Size: 5 QT is dangerous.
The motor has difficulty mixing even slightly stiff batter and the motor whines. The pin near the connection between the head of the mixer and the stand slips out (not completely) and you need to slide it back in so that the head doesn't fall off. It's a miracle that I noticed it slipping out and was able to slide it back in. With the pin out the entire head (which probably weighs around 40 lbs.!!) can fall off and it could be deadly!! But the most dangerous of all is the fact the bowl becomes lose from the place that you screw it in on the bottom of the stand and can fly off in the middle of mixing!! That could cause a really really serious injury.
I was trying to stabilize the bowl that was becoming slightly dislodged while mixing and my hand almost got crushed between the bowl and the machine!!!

I once called a few years ago and they were not helpful, just said I should take it to a Kitchen Aid repairman. I also tried contacting/emailing them around a week ago but they did not respond.
