Re: classic mixer changing speeds by itself ?
Contact Kitchenaid Parts and order a new speed switch. Be prepared to wait a month for it to arrive. It's relatively easy to replace. Be sure to unplug the mixer first. Make note of which wire goes where! If the switch goes bad again in the future, buy a different brand of mixer. ricardok45

Tll, It sounds like it could be an issue with the gear, the motor housing could have a crack in it. The problem could be much more involved as well. Put the unit on the slowest speed and see if you can stop the mixer from spinning. If it hiccups or stutters, that means you have a stripped gear. If you cannot stop the unit using your hand ON THE SLOWEST speed then there could be a problem with the motor housing or the motor itself not being held in place properly.
Hi Emma, Not going to be much help here to be honest. We have the KM020 and this is the only problem we have had with heavy machine use in 4 years - and a minor issue at that. This place is good for spare parts http://www.buyspares.co.uk/
If you're in the UK, you can call this number 02392 392 333 and give them your post code, they'll let you know who the local service agent is. All the best,
The K45SS is very similar to the 5-qt. tilt-head Artisan Stand Mixer. You need to adjust the mixer speeds. Obtain a copy of the K45SS 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 - 280
Firstly, I think you mean "flour".
Put in your ingredients. Cover the mixer, head and bowl, with a dishtowel. Turn on mixer to "stir" (or lowest speed). But! Mix only for 1 or 2 seconds. Repeat this, with bowl covered, until flour is mixed in enough not to fly out.
No change available. The motor speed if fixed and the 3 speed transmission has fixed gear ratio's. Look at the new HL300 model. It has a stirr speed which is slower than first speed.
Does your mixer havea safety cage? If not, you will need to install one before too long , or the machine will not comply with current safety standards. Put the cost of the safety kit towards the HL300.
The resistor will have failed. The A701 replacement is a 450 ohm 15W or 20W wirewound resistor. The capaicitor also can fail if the resistor has gone. It is a mains capacitor 0.1 microfarad. The modern mains capacitors are better to use than the old electrolytic type that were originally in the mixer.
