Question about Food Mixers
Viking 7 quart 1000 watt mixer
The small black knob that is part of the slow speed attachment cover release is broken on my machine and I need a replacement. Do you have one to sell and how much is it + shipping? If you don't have it, could you give me a source to get this piece. I know that it slides over the pin so installation, I can handle.
ok to answer both of your questions. the mixer needs a new speed selector switch. it sounds to me like the contacts are burnt out or worn out one. the motor is fine its just the motor isnt getting the right voltage from the switch. its either on or off or medium speed or no speed. either way you both have to replace the switches. you can get the parts and do it yourself at kitchenaid.com or your local appliance store should be able to get them for you to.

I had the same problem. Had to strip the machine down to get to the motor. On the top is a moving plate with various capacitors etc mounted. On the front side there was a Capacitor (At least I think it was) with the wire broken.
I resoldered it and the machine now works fine.
I hope this helps

HAMILTONCOOL - It appears that your mixer had a mechanical failure in the transmission box or planetary gear assembly of your mixer failure - one of the main gears has failed, hence the loss of power to the agitator. You didn't mention any associated noise prior to the loss of power to your agitator, but I'm assuming there was just a little more noise than usual, prior to failure.
The inspection and troubleshooting of the transmission is a DITY capability, particularly if your mixer is out of warranty. Just be sure to have the correct Part List manual around when you start to disassemble your mixer. If you're lacking one, you can download it from the KA website. Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, and then select Parts List file. You can check the page titled 'Case, Gearing & Planetary Unit, for the disassembly, troubleshooting, and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the parts. It can be messy but gratifying. Once apart you can check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the gears, etc. Good hunting... I hope this helps - Howard, Burke, VA
