I need to get to the speed control to find a broken cord. I can get the appliance apart but cant get the speed control out.

A broken part ? or is only the potentiometer of the speed control thats damaged, but a wire that is broken ? without any force is hard to believe the spring element internally that moves along the carbon track of the potentiometer inbetween the speed control should have lost the contact pressure or only dirthy ?. where the resist for rpm mixing is lost. maybe marketing technical made to order it as a one-part assembly try contactspray in the potentiometer.

My artisan mixer will not turn back on

Make sure it's unplugged, remove and inspect the carbon brushes one at a time under those black screws on the side. They are keyed with one corner of the square ground off so will only go in properly one way so eyes open when you take them out. If they are less than 10mm long replace them. Next would be look under the back cover for a broken wire to the black square speed control plate. Broken wires are only likely to be one of the bottom 2 on either side. Any more testing is going to require a multimeter.

How do you tilt the head back on this k45 model?

You will find a sliding lever on the side opposite the speed control. Pushing it toward the rear will unlock the head and allow it to be lifted.

If this does not work, you will need the Service Manual which shows the locking mechanism's action:

Speed control knob becoming stiff and hard to adjust speeds

Not being able to see inside your mixer and know to what the speed control is connected; whether it is a simple potentiometer or to a mechanical linkage or to a rheostat, the best advice I can offer is get it looked at by a competent person sooner rather than later and have any replacements or adjustments carried out.

Not only do you have the control knob to think about, which are rarely any stronger than they need to be and could be broken by using more force than it was designed to cope with. A replacement might not be easy to obtain.

Inside, the erratic stiffness could be caused by something almost seized or almost broken and it is unlikely to be any cheaper or simpler to repair by leaving it longer; quite the reverse in fact. In some cases leaving it until it finally breaks could destroy the electronics inside if there are any or if the speed control is by a rheostat, breakage could leave wires carrying mains electricity free to short out, blow fuses and generally make smoke and sparks.

Why wont my classic kitchenaid mixer switch off

Good Morning,

There is a spring inside your mixer attached to the speed control switch and speed control arm, the spring can sometimes get caught on the slide bar that is just below it inside the mixer. The other reason is that the speed control switch plate in the rear of the machine (that the spring attaches to) vibrates the three speed adjustment screws out or in and the spring will pull the speed switch (control arm that you use to control mixing speed when using the mixer) back to the stir position after you try to turn the mixer off.

If it is a spring problem you will have to do a full tear down to get at the spring and either free it or replace it. If it is a problem with the adjustment screws on the speed plate, that can be handled at the rear of the machine and is twice as easy to get at but sometimes much more frustrating to adjust. There are "YouTube" videos on the internet that will walk you through the process of adjusting your speed control plate just Google "adjusting speed on kitchenaid mixer" I hope this helps. please let us know if it does and if you have other questions just post them here and we will "FixYa"

How do I fix a speed control switch that doesn't stay in the off position?

My daughter had this problem with her mixer. The problem is that the screw that holds the speed lever has come loose. To get at the screw you have to dismantle the head. It took me about 1/2 hour to take it apart and put it back together. It is not that hard, except that you have to drive a pin out of the beater shaft. Works great now.

OK you have mains voltage across the black wire and the white wire on the 2 bottom terminals on the left side of the speed control plate. You are certain that the carbon brushes are in the correct way around with the shaved off corner lining up with the blocker in the brush holder. Are the switch contacts touching when the lever is moved to position 1. They are on the inside of that black control plate. If they are touching and still no go you need to check that the fields have a circuit. You notice that the black and the white wires cone from inside the machine, there are 2 more going inside as well. Remove the brushes and check for a circuit between one of those other 2 wires to one of brush holders and the other wire to the other brush holder. If that's OK you are pretty safe to change the phase board that is above the black control plate. It has about 4 wires coming out of it. The control plate has wire colours written on it beside each terminals so there is no chance of a mistake if you can read.

My Kitchenaid K5SS 300 watt standing mixer launches into the highest speed regardless of the speed selection. It functions with a sliding knob and I can barely ease it from off to stir and it goes from no...

I had a similar problem where the mixer would also go to fast speed right away. On the back at the top was a screw that was loose. After tightening this screw I had 4 speeds but no stir speed. I unscrewed that screw and a bolt fell out. This bolt went to threads on the inside of the area covered by that back plate. I put that bolt back on and tightened it and the corresponding one on the other side and wala the mixer works perfectly at all speeds. Hope it helps. Make sure mixer is unplugged before attempting anything like this (wires are exposed when the back plate is removed - some kind of flexible circuit board).

Mixer works at high speed only

You might have someone repair it for you; here is a place that charges a flat fee of $69.95 and thats including the return shipping. Check 'em out: The speed controller board sounds like the right direction but it hard to know if that is the issue until you install a new part. This is a known issue as far as I have heard around the internet. You might give KA a call and see if they can help; all they can say is no. I have heard they revised the part to fix the problem; my brother had a couple of boards replaced on his pro model and now it seems fine. Good luck!
