Question about KitchenAid KSM90 Ultra Power Series Stand Mixer
Kitchenaid mixer ksm90wh speed control switch installation and adjustment instructions needed ??
SOURCE: Kitchenaid Mixer K45SS
I just did this last week!
1 Unplug Mixer 2 Remove screw on TOP of mixer body, at back. 3 Remove rear cover and paper-gasket thing (its not the end of the world if you end up tearing it a little). 4 the phase control (little circuit board w/wires) is at the top (you should see it very easily) held on by one screw, remove it. 5 when the circuit board is unscrewed, disconnect all the wires that are connected FROM THE CIRCUIT BOARD to the black control plate (NOT all wires-there should be 4 left on the control plate at this point). you don't need to remember where all the colors go as the control plate is labeled->but looking at them and making sure you understand the abbreviations would be beneficial (BK=black, BL=Blue RW=Red&White W=white R=red etc. 6 install new phase control (screw), either buy new thermal grease (used to keep the board cool->it transfers heat to the mixer's housing) or try to salvage what you can from the old one. 7 connect wires, paying attention to labels. 8 reinstall paper gasket, then cover, then screw to hold on back- cover.

Hi, RDBOST, it appears as if you’ve identified the problem you’re having with your mixer. And the speed control sensor (Hall Effect sensor) can be ordered from several online KA repair parts vendors. I assume you’ve got a Parts List manual on hand, but if you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home. Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number KP2671, and then select one of the files that appear under Parts List file. Turn to page 4, Case, Gearing and Planetary Assembly and locate Illus. #9, Hall Effect Sensor, part# 9703312. This is what you want to order.
Here are four potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com, that should carry the KA parts. Prices can vary widely (between $4.00 ~ $9.00 plus S&H & tax) between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
Good luck and have fun. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

If your mixer does not run slow, it is often caused by the small circuit board in the unit that controls the speed. The easiest way to correct this issue is to check if it is malfunctioning. Here are additional step that you may use to solve the problem.
1. Turn off the unit.
2. With the back plate off, try to adjust the large black plate on the back of the speed control and see if you can regulate the speed better.
3. The plate has 2 screws on the top and one or two on the bottom, depending on the model about 3" square.
4. You can adjust the speeds if you turn the two screws on the top.
5. With the mixer off, start by turning them both the same amount of turns in the same direction and see how it affects the speeds. Start with 1/2 turn.
6. Be sure to keep track of the turns so you can return to the original start point if you have to. This will effect both the low and high speeds at the same time.
7. If you are going in the wrong direction, return to your start point and turn the opposite direction.
If this does not solve the problem, the circuit board is already malfunctioning and needs to be replaced.
Hope it helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.
