Question about KitchenAid Artisan Series Stand Mixer - Onyx Black
The mixer was sounding like it would shake apart.The back cover was loose so I took it off and saw that one nut had come loose and another was lying at the base of the space.I unscrewed the sprung screws at the top of the plate and am not sure whether that has gone back as they were set before. I also wound in another screw which did not seem to be doing anything . I put the plate back on and now have no response to the speed settings ndit only goes at the full speed pulse end of the settings.
The screws are roughly 8 turns in from fully out when starting to set the speed. On the lowest speed 13 revolutions of the planetary in 15 seconds is a good speed.

SOURCE: won't shift speeds
ok so the set-up looks sortof like this (lets hope the formatting of this website/your computer doesn't mess it up...)

A is the rivet holding the arm to the plastic body B is the contact with a little tab. C is the copper arm D is the arm's contact
there is a copper arm (C) that has a contact on one end (D). If this contact is ALWAYS open (should only be open when mixer is off) it is either bent (carefully reform) or has come loose at the rivet marked A. On mine, the rivet at postn. A had come loose, i simply rotated it so that the contacts touched and super-glued the copper to the plastic (which should be rivited).
Since the copper was not discolored, I knew that the temps should not be too high for the super glue to handle (not in my opinion anyway).

The brushes must be insert in a particular manner in order for it to work correctly. If you remove the brushes and shine a flashlight into the hole, you should see a small detent or "stop" in one corner of the hole. Its a square hole. Match this corner with the corner of the brush which is shaved off. The brush is not square; it has one corner shaved or smoothed down. This allows the brush to fully extend into the hole. If the brush is inserted any other way, it will not contact the motor and will not run.

If you turn the mixer upside down there is a grub screw which sits underneath where the metal stand pin is, if you tighten that it'll help retain the stand pin. It's only a small grub screw, you'll need a very small screwdriver, and perhaps a torch to help you.

SOURCE: mixer head loose
Referring to the diagram on:
Remove the screw, item 22, to remove the trim band around the mixer. This will reveal 4 screws which hold the top cover on. Remove the screws and lift the top off. Find all the screws which hold the gearhead in place and tighten them all. If you want to make the fix a permanent one put some thread-loc compound on each screw and tighten it.
