After many years dealing with Kitchen Aid mixers I purchased a pro 600 for my wife as an early Xmas gift. After just a few usages it started making a clunking noise in the gear housing. I removed the housing and discovered the casting is of very poor tolerances and the main drive assembly was lifting from the torque of the motor and causing the gear assembly to lift out of the casting and skipping on the worm gear. I am sure it is going to happen to many more of these units as the casting area that holds the bearing in is to large obviously an overdue mold in the casting process. Time for a recall Kitchen Aid.

All are easy fixes in that model and all parts are available on the internet and ebay. A kitchenaid parts manual can be downloaded off of the internet and it is basically a tear down guide. Shoul be able to accomplish any of the three fixes in 15 to 60 minutes
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..
You will see the motor controller Item Number 19. Looks like a pretty simple taks to remove and replace it. there is also a hall effect sensor Itme Number 24 which monitors the motor speed. That might be faulty as well, but my best bet is the controller.
Unfortunately the parts list does not specify the part number for the controller so a call to Kitchenaid is probably required.
It sounds like you may have a governor issue. which is located at the back of your unit. it controls the amount of current going to your motor by way of centripetal force. the part number for the governor assembly is 4159675. this can become weaker over time and will eventually cause it to sputter or speed up suddenly. hope this helps.
Mine did almost the exact same thing one day. I have the Artisian Model, It would do it on any of the lowest speeds. Dont know if this will help you or not but I just ran mine the next day on all the way high with the spash guard on for making whipped cream for about 6 minutes full throttle and for some reason it hasnt went slow and shut itself off since then. Mine is about 7 months old. I called Kitchen Aid but their customer service all of a sudden seems to not know english worth a poo...
Try running yours on full blast for 5 minutes with something simple in the bowl. If its a 250 watt or higher make whipped water out of 2 cups of water and a tablespoon of cornstarch. Run it till you get what looks like whipped cream. Oh yea. Use the Balloon whip. The lubrication in the motor is supposed to last for at least 5 years but I have seen on numerous post's that if you run them on all the way for at least 5 minutes the oil will even out in the motor. Running the mixers at low speed alot will cause the oil inside not to move as freely since the motor doesnt heat up the oil in the gears.
