The Kitchenaid Artisan stand mixer is spinning too fast after a voltage fluctuation.


Replace the phase board, that's the small pcb under the back cover with 6 wires coming out of it.

My kitchenaid mixer run on high at all times


If your mixer only runs on high speed there are 3 things that can cause that. The first thing to check will be the speed control plate, Remove the trim and end cover on the mixer, the first thing you should see is the speed control plate, this has 3 screws on it, try adjusting the top two screws 1/4 turn, this should slow the mixer down, do not over tighten. Also check to see if the control plate spring is unhooked. If the spring is unhooked, attach to bottom of the control plate, and squeeze the spring end.
If this does not fix your mixer, check the wiring of the mixer, you can locate a wiring diagram on the last page of the service manual.
If the speed control plate is adjusted correctly and all the wiring is correct it will be your speed control phase board. You can test the speed control phase board to see if it is shorted. With the line cord disconnected, pull the t-b ar contacts to open, and insert a piece of paper between them so they cannot close. Reapply power-the mixer should just run or buzz trying to run. If it operates at full speed, teh phase control board is defective and needs to be replaced.
Here is a link to the service manual: http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/mendingshed/kitchenaidservicemanual.pdf
This will aid you in taking the mixer apart, troubleshooting and putting it back together, remember the wiring diagram is the very last page.

KitchenAid mixer speed surges high and low uncontrolably


You can get the high speed back if you want to play with those three screws. there is a timing scheme for your mixer and it is set and adjusted by manipulating those 3 screws. The bottom center screw is for speeds 6 8 and 10. The best choice is to replace this switch, about $10 bucks on ebay.

When I turn on my Kitchenaid mixer at any speed, it ramps up to high speed and then shuts down after maybe 30 seconds.


You need a reputable repairman. My gears were stripped after trying to mix a very thick dough. It would only work on high speed. After it was repaired.... I still use it, all the speeds work, and that has been 15 years ago. My mixer was at least 8 years old at the time of the "stripping".

Mixer only operates at high speed regardless of the speed setting


the triac solid-state component on the board for the motor speed control is shorted and you need a new control board, unless you can find an outsource replacement triac,most companies won't sell you parts because of liability issues on internal parts of the unit

Mixer speed switch is haunted


The likely problem is the Hall Effect sensor located on top of the motor. This sensor is used to determine the speed of the motor. Since it does not sense a speed, the motor revs to top speed and shuts down. You have to shut the switch to Off/Reset to try again. Replace the sensor which costs under $10 before replacing the speed control which costs $50.

Here is where you can download the repair manual. Read the section on speed control adjustments and repair. This might not be difficult for someone who is mechanixcally and electrically knowledgible.
