Question about KitchenAid KSM150PS Artisan Series Stand Mixer
Stir/2 speeds there is noise but no movement. Speeds 4,6,8 and 10 have the same speed. 2 small wire pieces fell out when cover was removed. Any help would be appreciated.
The most likely answer is that you need a new speed control switch and there is a possibility that you may need a new worm gear. Can you give a more detailed explanation? What happened last time you used the machine?, what was happening when the problem occurred? What caused you to open the back cover? what else did you inspect or take apart or open up? Please send more info.

I don't know if it will work for you but move the speed lever from front to back a few times as fast as you can. This will polish the contacts. This is like the old fashioned TV tuners. People used to turn them slowly and then complain when they needed serviced every 6 months. Spinning the tuner knob kept the tuners working flawlessly for years.

SOURCE: Mixer does not function at
Remove the brushes. Two black screws, one on each side. Pay close attention to orientation. MUST INSERT THE SAME EXACT WAY! Use electrical contact cleaner. I said electrical contact cleaner, put the WD40 back in the drawer!!! Using electrical contact cleaner, clean the contacts. Now clean them again, now repeat two or three more times. Spray SOME, meaning a little, into each hole. Reassemble and try it out. If this does not fix the problem refer to the section on removing the cover to access the motor and gears. disassemble clean the motor's brush surface and the contacts. if you don't know what I'm talking about then stop and call a pro.
This is a very common reaccuring problem with these things. Especially when meat grinding or cookie doughing with it. If you move to replace, get a stronger model, like the 500 or the 600. No, I do not sit around repairing mixers all day. I just happen to know a lot about the ones my wife has destroyed. Some two or even three times. after a while it pays to go get the right equipement.

Pull the back off and there will be two screws at the top of the Speed Control Plate and a 3rd screw at the bottom. Tighten the top two screws down. email@example.com. Let me know if it works.

I think you have a K45SS. It sounds like there is a problem with one of the gears, probably the worm gear. The worm gear is designed to be the first to fail if the mixer has struggled with a heavy dough or other difficult to mix substance. The best way to establish the cause will be to open the head up and check the gears for signs of damage.

By not working to mean that the planetary gear wont move? or does it just make a weird noise when it is on a low setting? If the gear is completely stripped the unit shouldn't run on any speed regardless if there is mixture in the bowl or not. Since I can't see the mixer I would say that there might be a slight tear in the gear which would only allow the mixer to get stuck on a slow speed where as on a high speed it is running fast enough to skip that particular tooth. I understand that the mixer is brand new but when it comes to mixers you can strip a gear right out of the box depending on the consistency of the batter you are mixing. If the machine is under a year old it is under warranty and you are allowed free service by an authorized repair center in your area.
