Nieu, I'm not sure what kind of mixer you have nor am I should what the one speed is.  In my case, I have KA 575 watt professional 6 model that would operate at only the highest speed regardless of setting. If your problem is similar to this, I would recommend that you first check the Hall Effect sensor which determines the mixer’s speed.  I bought another Hall sensor for about $13.  I replaced the original sensor and made sure that the connection between the sensor and control board was nice and snug. My mixer worked as good as new! But I was curious to know if my original sensor was defective, so I put it back in mixer and again made sure all of the connections were tight. Guess what?  My original sensor also made my mixer work! There was absolutely nothing wrong with the original Hall Effect sensor except that the connection between the control board and sensor was not tight--unfortunately I didn't check the connection before I decided to buy the new sensor. My best guess is that the connection between the control board and the sensor probably loosens and comes undone over time from use and vibrations. Follow these steps:
1.  Download the mixer parts and diagrams from the Kitchenaid website to see what the Hall Effect sensor looks like. BTW the part number is 9703312 for my model.
2.  You'll need a phillips head screwdriver to open up the mixer gear case cover.
3.  Make sure that the connection between the control board and sensor is absolutely tight and snug.
4.  Also, make sure that the orientation of the sensor is correct.  It's difficult to tell which way the sensor should be connected because the control board has three prongs and the sensor can attach facing up or down. After you've made the connection, run the mixer. If it still doesn't work, disconnect the sensor, reconnect it with the prongs facing the opposite direction and try it again.  I actually found the right sensor orientation through a little trial and error.  But by going through this trial and error, I also had my Eureka moment when I realized that the original sensor probably would also work if it were reconnected with correct orientation.  
5.  This whole process probably takes less than 10-15 minutes to perform.
6.  Use your common sense and make sure to unplug the mixer before checking, connecting or disconnecting anything.

Kitchen Aid K5SS mixer runs for a little while then stops


Check the carbon brushes, they could be worn out. Apart from that you will be pulling it apart to find the burning, that's where the fault will be.

How do I replace a kitchen ais speed control lever on a kitchen aid 4.5 quart mixer


http://www.kitchenaidparts.eu/documents/pdf/service-manual/classic-svc-manual-new-email-version.pdf

This is a full tear down manual for your mixer, you will need the new speed control switch, spring and bar about $12.00 and new grease and new gasket all together about $40.00 dollars for all parts. It will take about an hour and a half to two hours. OH!!! and a roll of paper towels, but better a handful of throw away towels works much better. I hope this helps you, please let us know so we can help FixYa.

Funky speed


Could also be a broken wire to the control plate. It's not very often the plate itself. Just looking in there while operating the lever may reveal something. The shaft at the bottom that moves the plate closes a set of points to start the mixer, maybe the points are loose and not closing when they should. Just be careful operating it with the cover off and alive.
