Sounds as if the problem is with the assembly and/or the adjustment of the control plate. The Service Manual can be found at:

Hi. Goto kitchenaid.com and download the parts catalog for your mixer model, these drawings will assist you in the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer.

You'll need to replace the speed control in your mixer. This is a common problem. Be prepared to wait at least a month for your parts to arrive. Unplug your mixer before you open it up.

If you're still under warranty call kitchenaid!

If this solution has assisted you, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45

Hi GERALD. You don’t provide your model number so I can only provide a ‘generic’ solution to your problem.
More than likely when you inadvertently stripped the plastic (worm) gear the speed control assembly was also damaged electronically. That’s why you get the higher speeds but not the lower speeds.
I’ll assume you already have your mixer’s Parts List manual on-hand. If you're lacking one, you can download it 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 and select a file under Parts List (and then check to see it this matches your mixer model).
Turn to pages 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. You’ll want to focus on "Control Plate Assembly."
First inspect around the control plate assembly to ensure all the wire connections are OK. It's possible a connection has come loose during the reassembly from your first repair. Unfortunately the whole controller assembly is fabricated on a little PC board which was not meant to be 'home fixed', and my 'expertise' ends there. A local small appliance repair shop should be able to determine if the controller assembly is functioning properly or not, or you can just order replacement parts without the testing.
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 five potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com. You should be search for ‘food grade grease’. Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
Finally, here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer that are good to have in your ‘toolbox’.

I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

My mixer is about 15 years old works well except


Hi BCPSBT. You say your mixer growls at slow speed. It could be that it’s time for an oil (lubrication) change. KA packs your mixer’s transmission with enough grease to ‘last a lifetime’, but depending on the age (in this case a middle-age appliance) and usage (you don’t indicate) of your mixer the grease breaks down into its constituent parts: oil and additives. Over time, the additives will thicken and provide less lubrication to the transmission gears and this is probably what is occurring now.
If you are DITY type person, feel adventurous, and your mixer is not under warranty you can troubleshoot it yourself. Be sure you have the Parts List manual on hand. If you are lacking one, you can download it from the KA website http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> and select “Consumer” for User Type, then enter the 6 character Model Number, in your case use K45SSW select Parts List (1) and then check to see it this matches your mixer model.
Turn to pages 4 & 5 for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the parts. For starters, you should consider reordering the gasket (Illus. No 19) and O-ring (Illus. No 34). With the mixer apart and transmission exposed, you should be able to confirm how well the lubrication grease is distributed and doing its job. Also, once apart you can check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the gears, including the planetary and agitator shaft gears.
When you re-grease the gears and assemblies, you should use a food-grade grease that you can order online (although I’ve seen automotive bearing grease used too – your call).
As far as parts go, here are five potential online vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com and Grainger.com (for grease). Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do some comparison shopping.
Finally, here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer.
Between these three websites, their excellent pictures, descriptions, and your Parts List manual, you should now be able to completely disassemble and reassemble your mixer, should you decide to go that route.
Good luck and have fun. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

My kitchen aid mixer will not mix....the motor is going but but nothing is moving


Hi AKRAUSSFAN, I hate it when that happens! From the description of your mixer’s symptom your mixer’s had a transmission failure in the primary gear box or the planetary gear assembly (agitator). One of the main gears has failed, hence the loss of power to the agitator, while the electric motor still runs.
The inspection and troubleshooting of the mixer 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 at: (http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home).
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals& Guides> and enter the 6 character model number, in this case KSM190P, and then select the file under Parts List (61) KSM150PSWH0.pdf (773.44 KB) (definitely check to see if this matches your mixer).
Turn to pages 4 & 5 titled: “Case, Gearing & Planetary Unit”, for the disassembly, troubleshooting, and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the parts. I suspect your culprit gear is Illus. No. 6, Worm Gear, in Illus. No. 27, Worm Gear Bracket and Gear assembly. KA designs this gear to fail on purpose so the rest of the mixer will not self destruct.
Once apart you can check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the other gears, etc. You may find more parts that need replacement than just a bad worm gear. You may also want to consider replacing all the grease, particularly if there are gear particles suspended in it.
Besides needing a replacement worm gear and grease, you might consider replacing the gasket (Illus. No 15), too. I recommend using a food-grade grease that you can order online (although I’ve seen automotive bearing grease used too – your call).
Here are five potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com (for grease). You should search for ‘food grade grease’ online (although I’ve seen automotive bearing grease used too – your call). Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do some comparison shopping.
Here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/greasing and reassembly of a KA Mixer.
Between these three websites and their excellent pictures and descriptions and your Parts List manual, you should now be able to completely disassemble and reassemble your mixer.
If you feel this is beyond your capabilities and will be too difficult to do by yourself you can take your mixer to a local small appliance repair shop and have them troubleshoot and fix your mixer. KA Customer Care can provide you with the name and phone # of the closest authorized KA repair shop in your area or you can do a Online web search, but be sure to get at least three estimates before deciding to commit to one repair shop.
Good luck and have fun. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

Need to add oil what type & where to add


Hi AQUA_1WELL, you want grease not oil.
Your KA mixer came supplied with a ‘lifetime’ supply of grease for lubricating your mixers transmission gears. However, over time that grease breaks down and it should be replaced as part of a regular maintenance regimen for your mixer.
The inspection and troubleshooting of the inside of your mixer is a DITY capability, particularly if your mixer is out of warranty. Just be sure to have the Parts List manual on hand. 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, in your case use KSM90P, and select one of the files listed under Parts List (check to see it this matches your mixer model).
Turn to pages 4 & 5, titled “Case, Gearing and Planetary Unit”, which provides and exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the parts. This gearing is what you want to re-grease; as you disassemble the mixer head, you’ll see where what gears need grease and how much is used.
Ideally you want to replace the grease in your mixer with a ‘food grade’ grease (although I’ve see people use automotive bearing grease, too – your call.) Unfortunately you can’t just buy a ‘little’ grease, so the best option is to purchase a ‘cartridge’ and you’ll have enough to last you a lifetime of KA mixers. Try this link: http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/greases/ecatalog/N-9iv/Ntt-food+grade+grease?op=search&sst=All to get an idea of the grease available. You don’t necessarily need to purchase from Grainger, but when I fixed my wife’s mixer and needed to replace the grease in her mixer, the grease came from Grainger.
Here are five potential online vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com. Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
It can be messy but quite gratifying to diagnose and repair your mixer yourself.
Finally, here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer. The mixers displayed in the links are different KA models, but the principles are the same.
Between these three websites and their excellent pictures and descriptions and your Parts List manual, you should now be able to completely disassemble and reassemble your mixer. Good luck and have fun. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

So I shreded the nylon gear in my K5SS 325W. How


Hi DELUNAY. The only way to tell if your speed control assembly is bad it to remove it and test it a local repair shop, but I think from the symptoms you describe, you’ve already answered your own question and your speed control assembly is shot. The fact that your motor is not making any noise indicates to me that it’s not getting power. That can only be caused by two things; a bad speed control board or a burned out electric motor. When you shredded your nylon worm gear, did the motor exude a ‘bad/burnt’ smell (other than possibly ozone)? If not, then I would look at replacing your speed control board/assembly.
Since you know you’ve got to replace the worm gear, you might as well replace the speed control assembly. The inspection and troubleshooting of the mixer 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.

Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals& Guides> and enter the 6 character model number, in your case use KSM50P and then select the first files under Parts List (definitely check to see if it matches your mixer. If it doesn’t, continue to look at other manuals until you find the correct manual that does match.)

Besides your shredded worm gear, you can check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the other gears, etc. You may find more parts that need replacement than just a bad gear. You should also consider replacing the grease, particularly if there are gear particles suspended in it.

Hobart A200 noise


Your mixer was built in 1942 and from the sound of it, it's been without grease for some time. Before you dismantle it, try adding new grease to it. This is the less expensive and less time consuming approach. The grease product to look for is Shell Darina XL EP-2, Try to find a local Shell Distributor and see if they'll sell you about 4 tubes of 400 grams each. This grease is compatible with most other greases, so you won't have to remove the old grease before you add the new stuff.

Remove the four screws that attach the Hub to the body of the mixer, pull off the hub. You now have access to the transmission area. work the new grease into the cavity, try to get as much grease as you can toward the back of the compartment. This will be a very messy job unless you have, or acquire a grease gun that the tubes will fit in. Lay the mixer on it's back and let gravity help you to get a lot of grease down through the hub opening. Keep adding grease until you've greased up to the hub opening. Grease the hub gear and then re-install the hub. Raise the mixer to vertical and start up the mixer, letting it run for a couple of minutes. Stop the mixer and shift gears,, once again start the mixer and repeat this procedure for the last gear. Listen for the sounds it was making before, they should be silent or at least muted. If it's still making loud noises, You may well have to take it apart for an overhaul. Dont overlook the planetary gearing, this gearing is not bathed in grease like the trans. Remove the planetery assembly, clean and inspect the planetary gear and the large ring gear in the mixer body. Regrease both and re-assemble. Your mixer is now as quiet as it will get short of a complete overhaul. If this solution works, it has only cost you a few bucks and a bit of time, making this. solution a good one, unless you still have the major noise issues.
