Question about Food Mixers
I need to reattach the screw at the bottom of the panel in the motor that controls the speed to the lever that turns the mixer on and off. I have only been able to find K5SS or newer pictures and the panel is different than the old Hobart Kitchenaid. Pictures are worth a lot. I can't tell if I am missing a part, or how to reattach the screw, nut, and a piece of metal plate I'm not sure of.
Not really sure if this is the one you are looking for but check out http://www.mendingshed.com/5profmap.html there is a parts list you can order from also.

Remove the philips screw at the back of the head, and remove the name band. This exposes the 4 screws underneath. Unplug mixer. Remove the 4 screws and lift the top off of the head. Switch and motor are right there. Gently remove the 4 wire plugs, after marking them. Unscrew the 2 screws holding the switch down and lift out the switch.

Hi PETER, Happy New Year! Your Speed Control Knob can be replaced quite easily (OK, maybe with a little effort) by yourself, if you are a DITY type person, feel adventurous, and your mixer is not under warranty.
Before you start taking your mixer apart, be sure you have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website at: 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 KSM50P (Your K5SS mixer falls within this manual), and select the first file KSM50P.pdf (438.31 KB) listed under Parts List (4) and then check to verify this matches your mixer model.
Your speed control assembly is attached to the bottom of the top part of the mixer’s head (or Illus. No 1, Gearcase Motor Housing, on pgs 4 & 5).
Turn to pages 6 & 7, titled: “Motor And Control Parts”, which provides an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixers electrical components, along with all the parts. Locate lllus. Nos. 1, 2, 3, 4 - Pivot screw, Spring Washer, Switch Lever and Stud, and Control plate spring, respectively, which is the speed control handle assembly and Illus No. 5 and 6 - Speed Link & Cam and Flat Spring. Carefully inspect these parts to see if they have not come loose, particularly the Pivot Screw and Spring Washer. Also check to see if the Speed Link & Cam hasn’t shifted from its position. You should be able to see if something just needs to be tightened or if parts need to be replaced.
Also, with your mixer apart you can check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the gears, etc. It can be messy but quite gratifying to diagnose and repair your mixer yourself.
As far as parts go, here are five potential 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.
Finally, here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer. The mixers displayed in the links may be different than your KA model, but the principles are the same.
If you feel this repair is beyond your capability, then I would seek out a local small appliance repair shop in your area. KA Customer Care can give you names of local KA authorized repair shops in your area, but you can also do an online search to supplement what KA may provide you. Call to explain your circumstances and find out their hourly rate and get an estimate of what they think it would cost to repair your mixer. Also, always obtain three or more estimates – do some comparison shopping.
Good Luck. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

That would be incorrect. If the attachment is for a hobart kitchenaid mixer then it will fit all models of kitchenaid mixers including the brand new pro series because the attachment port and drive gear has not been changes since 1925 or 6 when it was first introduce by the Hobart company.
