My mixer will only work on the 3rd gear not 1 or 2. I thing that the gear is pulling away or lifting slighty out of place and won't work. If anyone has a service manual it would be really great if you would send me a copy online or mail COD at firstname.lastname@example.org or

slacken the big acorn nut away from the bottom of the planetary and then tighten the lock nut to the acorn nut. When adjusted and secured, the planetary should have a little vertical play, maybe 1/16".
That will stop the second gear driving from friction from being too tight.
Best guess is that the gear for 3rd speed is seized together with it's brass bushing and the center, large transmission shaft. I don't recall which gear is for 3rd, but the transmission has two gears (2nd and 3rd speed) which have brass bushings in them. The brass bushing should spin freely on the center shaft (when in final position - sometimes they pull off the shaft tough, but spin freely when in final position, my opinion is that this is OK), and the gear should spin freely of the brass bushing. My guess is that the 3rd speed gear, being seized to the center shaft, cannot freely idle on the center shaft, which would result in being stuck in 3rd gear.
You need to adjust the mixer speeds. Obtain a copy of the KSM5 Repair Part List from Kitchenaid.com. Remove the screw holding the End Cover and locate the three screws from the Control Plate. All three (2 top left and right, and 1 bottom) must all be adjusted. 1. Loosen the lock nuts enough & Turn the 2 top screws clockwise until they cannot be turned anymore. Leave the bottom screw alone for now. 2. Use a dab of white paint or paper whiteout to mark the positions of the Phillips screws. 3. Plug in your mixer and Set the speed selector to "Stir". 4. Turn each top screw One full turn couterclockwise (alternating between Left and Right) Keep making one full turn at the time (for both left and right) until the motor starts running. 5. Put your hand near the Agitator shaft and allow it to brush your finger slightly. Use your watch or clock and start counting the number of times the shaft touches your finger in 60 seconds. The correct count should be 60 RPM (Rounds Per Minute). If it is less or more than 60, give each screw 1/4 turn counterclockwise or clockwise and start counting again. Now tighten both lock nuts. 6. Set the speed selector to "6" and turn the bottom screw either clockwise or counterclockwise to achieve a speed of 180 RPM.
For your reference, the planetary RPM's for the 5-qt. tilt-head Artisan Stand Mixer are as follows: Stir speed - 60 Speed 2 - 95 Speed 4 - 135 Speed 6 - 180 Speed 8 - 225 Speed 10 - 2
To the best of my knowledge that is a reduction drive / direct motor connection mixer. No belts just bearings and gears. It has been far too long and I honestly can not tell you how to remove the cover. I do remember that were screws under the chassis of the motor / gear section. Real bad case of long time no do... here. You might have to remove the drive head to access the top cover screws. Wish I could have been more of a help. Just in this case it is one of those it needs to be in front of me things.
d-300 and d-340 mixers dont use oil they use grease -47 can be bought @any hobart office. there are several reasons why this problem can happen. try tighning the planetary nut all the way then back off 1/4 TURN .also do the same with the top main shaft nut if that doesnt work contact me back
if the mixer is a 3-phase unit, that mixer has no reverse speeds, all gears should turncounter-clockwise when mixer is on ,if a 3-phase unit try switching any 2 of the incomingline to to change direction
