Question about Computers & Internet
Motor runs at top speed, uncontrollable. Won't turn off. Need to pull the plug to stop it. Opened the case and found a small strip of spring brass floating around loose. No idea where it came from.
A friend bought this at a second-hand shop, says it worked fine for a while, then suddenly it failed as described above.
I don't mind getting my hands dirty, have been taking things apart for years, but this totally baffles me, as I have no idea how the speed control is supposed to work. If I had a good unit to compare with, I could figure it out.
Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

I have the same problem. The Dewart sStore, formerly Black & Decker, suggested calling B&D at 1-800-738-0245 to see if they carry it. I'll do that later on today. If they don't a local store in Spokane WA, Batteries Plus, says they can make one for $12 if I can't find a ready-made one.

I had the same issue, cleaning the contacts on the sim card did not help. BUT i went and got a new SIM, it did the same thing.. till i wedged some folded up paper into the sim slot on TOP of the sim card forcing it closer to the contacts. So far this is working for me atleast. good luck.

Hi BIGBATS76. Sorry to hear about your mixer problem. I suspect your problem has to do with the speed control assembly inside your mixer’s head, and you can fix this yourself.
The fact that you’ve looked inside tells me you are not faint of heart. Just be sure to have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website at: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number and select one of the files listed under Parts List. (Check to ensure it matches your mixer model.)
Turn to the pgs. titled: Case, Gearing And Planetary Unit that shows an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the parts. Locate the Illus. No. labeled, Control Assembly. This is where I suspect your problem lies.
First inspect around the controller assembly to ensure that all the wire connections are OK. It's possible a connection has come loose (which you’ve already done). Unfortunately the whole controller assembly is fabricated on a little PC board filled with resistors, capacitors and other electronic parts, which was not meant to be 'home fixed'. My 'expertise' ends at being able to recognize a resistor from a capacitor, but I don't get much deeper than that. A local small appliance repair shop should be able to determine if the controller assembly is functioning properly or not, or you can just order a replacement without the testing.
As far as parts go, here are four potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com. Prices for the same part can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
Once apart you can check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the gears, etc. It can be messy but quite gratifying to diagnose and repair your mixer yourself.
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. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA
