Sounds like a broken door switch. Inspect the door switch for any broken parts (sometimes the spring loaded button will break). Switches are generally inexpensive and easily installed.

Ps3 controller triangle circle box and x buttons wont work

Was anything spilled on it? This is likely cause for buttons to stick or become unresponsive. Has the controller taken any major impact? I.E thrown at wall? If none of these, take a pin or paper clip, turn controller over, and gently push the reset button. I do not recommend taking controller apart, as springs for the triggers are easily broken and will void and legitimate repair done by Sony.

Hi again, LESZCZ2. I believe you are speaking about your Speed Control Lever Assembly “switch”. Is that correct? From the symptoms you describe, it’s very possible, as you feel, the Control plate spring is broken or has become unhooked from the lever. You should be able to inspect this yourself and determine if that’s happened with just a little effort.
Be sure to have your Parts List Manual on hand, too. If you don’t have the original you can easily download a PDF version from the KA website: (
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals& Guides> and enter the 6 character model number, KSM150 and select one the files listed for your model that appears under Parts List (61): KSM150PSWH0.pdf (773.44 KB) and save that file to your PC.
Turn to pages 8 & 9, titled ‘Motor And Control Part’. Locate Illus. Nos. 1, 2, 3 & 4, Pivot screw, Spring washer, Speed control assembly lever, and Control plate spring, respectively. Carefully inspect these parts to see if they have not come loose, particularly the pivot screw and spring washer. Also check to see if the spring hasn’t become unhooked from the lever or broken.
As far as parts go, here are five potential vendors in no particular order:;;;; and Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
If you feel troubleshooting and repairing is beyond your capability, then I would seek out a local small appliance repair shop in your area. KA Customer Care can give you names of local KA authorized repair shops in your area, but you can also do an online search to supplement what KA may provide you. Call to explain your circumstances and find out their hourly rate and get an estimate of what they think it would cost to repair your mixer. Also, always obtain three or more estimates – do some comparison shopping.
Good luck and have fun. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

Powerbase model no 830806 9'' angle grinder the switch has broken -hardly used can I get a spare switch or is it worth repairing

The switch can be repaired if you have the patience. There are four springs inside and some contacts, which should be cleaned. The small springs are place under the contacts and the large springs fit on the end of the metal blade that is attached to the switch button, and the other end of each spring fits on a plastic spigot on the inside of the smaller switch housing. The switch is best assembled on the trigger and the outer housing placed over it once everything is in place.
Like I said earlier, patience is the key!

The "switch" refered to is probably the handle release button.

Power button loosely slides

Yes. The switch has broken and is replaceable. However I wouldn't recommend you do it unless you've done this before. DS Lites are easy to damage further when taking them apart. It's a great system but is easily broken beyond fixing. Look at all the posts on here from people putting new shells on and now the system won't boot up, broken ribbon cable connectors, etc. If it's under a year old contact Nintendo and they will repair it for free.

Excessive noise

I had the same problem. Two things were bad. One was the shock absorber and must be changed out as a pair. Also one of the springs that supports the tub was broken. My guess is that the spring broke and the shock failed shortly after. since it was more easily accessible and appeared to be the problem, I replaced the broken shock. Only to find the spring was broken too. After replacing the spring, its worked fine for a couple of years. Obviously I'm looking at this site because I'm having another problem, but this time I think it is the tub bearing.
