I had the same problem- have you used the mixer recently? i had mine in the basement- called the company and they said that if you are not using the mixer, the oil will leak. so to prevent that, every 6 months run the mixer on high for 2 minutes to distribute the oil internally. i have not had a problem since. But beware to anyone who is not using their mixer- run it every 6 months for a full two minutes on high to avoid leaking oil!!!.
I ordered KITOART’s metal food grinder for my mom. She said it was great, the material was very good, it was very durable, and the best grinder attachment. You can try it. Amazon link: https://amzn.to/2Gma9Tx.
The pasta rolling and cutting attachments work great. Best accessory for pasta sheets that you could own with your mixer.
The pasta extruding attachments are not too good though. For shaped pasta like penne, I would strongly recommend the Philips pasta maker instead.
The wattage of the motor is the difference. The artisan series motor wattage is 325; 500 professional series 450 and the 600 professional series is 575.
