You need to either clean the contacts on the control board, or replace it. Parts are available online or use Google to look up a repair shop.

Kitchenaid speed controller (don,t work


You need to adjust the mixer speeds.
Obtain a copy of the KSM150PS 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 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 - 280

At its lowest setting, our mixer spins at ever increasing speeds until it stops and then, will not work at any setting.


Your motor needs to be replaced. The speed setting should be able to be set from the start, and if it will not slow down or change speeds, the motor has been over-heated and will need to be replaced. The only quick fix for this is to bypass the speed setting, and change the brushes on the motor. If you do not know how to do this, ask a serviceman to change the brushes only. Brushes usually run about $30 to repair. Although, you will only have one speed.

My mixer was working fine until yesterday. When I turn on the lowest turn speed it'll start off slow for about two seconds then start to climb up to the highest speed without me touching the handle!


There is a problem with one of the speed control systems. It could be a control plate, a phase board or governor assembly. This is a common problem. Without actually seeing the machine in action and testing it myself I can't tell you exactly where the problem lies or which parts to repair. I would recommend taking it to an authorized repair center to have it looked at or testing the parts yourself if you have the knowledge to do so.

When I turn the mixer on the lowest speed, it is way too fast. How do I slow down the speed?


The speed on your KSM90 is controlled by three pieces: a Governor Assembly (35), a Control Plate Assembly (36), and a Phase Board Control (39/40 depending on the voltage of your machine). You just need to determine which one of those parts is bad and replace it. I have attached a schematic to this post so you can easily see where these parts are located within the machine. Once you locate the bad part you can either bring it to an authorized repair center (or you can bring it to them to fix it before you open it up) or you can purchase the items direct from us and we will be more than happy to send them to you.

Mixer won't shut off


Sounds as though the switch has shorted? Or the speed controller has failed ON. You could try a replacement if one can be had?

Speed reduction of Hobart A200 mixer


Hi Don. If your mixer is hurling honey, you must be very popular in the ant world...Sorry!

The Hobart electric motor on your mixer was designed and engineered to operate on 115-120 volt current and is the most dependable, and capable commercial mixer out there Is it possible for you to use a commercial Imerssion Blender for the first part of your mixing operation. Once your honey thickens a bit perhaps the a200 wouldn't hurl honey. Another consideration would be to either try a different beater or modify the one you have by removing surface area from the beater. If you remove metal, be sure to do it in a balanced fashion to avoid unwanted vibration in the beater. If you're not up to removing metal, take it to a machine shop and they'll do it for you. It probably won't take long, or cost much, and they have the expertise and the equipment to do it properly. If you found this solution helpful, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45.

You can download the manual for your specific model there, and most of them that I saw included at least basic maintenance like oiling and greasing locations. Good luck!

MIXER WILL NOT RUN AFTER CLEAN/LUBE TEN YEAR SERVICE.


The speed control is a governor setup, it's purely on and off, as the weights on the motor shaft spin faster, they press against the contacts, and when they spin a fast enough speed, it turns off current to the motor, which makes it slow down, and current gets turned back on.  That way, you get a pretty consistent speed on a setting no matter whether it's lightly loaded or whipping something fairly heavy.  If you can turn the motor shaft by hand, then you don't have anything binding, but you might have gotten the speed control out of adjustment.  give it another go.
