it sounds like you’ve got the mixer apart already to do your voltage
checks. So my guess it that you’ve
already determined that that (speed) Control Plate Assembly is not good and
need to be replaced. Since you’ve already
disassembled your mixer once I hope you have your mixer’s Parts List manual on
hand, but if not, 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, in your case use K45SSW, and select the file listed under Parts List (1), K45SSWH0.pdf (341.41 KB). Check to ensure it matches your mixer model.
Turn to pages 6 & 7, titled: Motor And Control Parts, which provides an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer’s electrical components, along with all the parts. Find Illus. No. 25, Control Plate Assembly, Part No. 240904-2.
As far as parts go, here are four potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com. Prices for the same part can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
Here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer.
Good luck and have fun. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

Any appliance with a motor should rotate freely. These are basically gear driven devices, Kitchen Aid makes different quality equipment. So either the gears are worn or possibly if you notice an electrical smell the problem could be at the tail of the motor. there are 3 major components 1. the brushes where the armature spins if you look inside the vent holes you might see a slight arc while it is running 2. the tail piece which is how the motor is kept straight. or as I said worn gears. this is especially common when companies use plastic gears instead of metal ones. Commercial appliances made by people like Hobart are expensive, but they outlast most others..
