I would recommend that you first check the Hall effect sensor which determines the speed. I had this exact problem (but mine occurred with a 600 professional model) and I actually went out and bought another Hall sensor for about $13. I replaced the original sensor and made sure that the connection between the sensor and control board was nice and snug. My blender worked as good as new! But I was curious to know if my original sensor was defective so I put it back in mixer and again made sure all of the connections were tight. Guess what? My original sensor also made my mixer work! There was nothing wrong with my original Hall effect sensor except the connection between the control board and sensor was not adequate--unfortunately I didn't check the connections before I decided to buy another one. My guess is that the connection between the control board and the sensor probably loosens or comes undone over time from use and vibrations.
1. Download the mixer parts and diagrams from the Kitchenaid website to see what the Hall effect sensor looks like. 2. You'll need a phillips head screwdriver to open up the mixer. 3. Make sure that the connection between the control board and sensor is absolutely tight and snug. 4. Also, make sure that the orientation of the sensor connection between the control board and sensor is correct. it's hard to know which way the sensor should be connected because the control board has three prongs and the sensor can attach facing up or facing down. If, after you've made the connections, the mixer still doesn't work. Disconnect the sensor and reconnect it with the prongs facing the opposite direction and try it. I actually found the right orientation through trial and error. By going through this trial and error, I also had my Eureka moment when I realized that the original sensor probably would also work it were reconnected with correct orientation. 5. This whole process probably takes less than 10-15 minutes to perform.

Pull the back off and there will be two screws at the top of the Speed Control Plate and a 3rd screw at the bottom. Tighten the top two screws down. email@example.com. Let me know if it works.

It sounds like your mixer likes to take a beating, ive never dropped one and for good reason, they weigh quite a bit. first check to see if all the rubber legs on the bottom are still there. if they are the only possible solution to fix it after being bent or warped is to either re-shape the part using a tool strong enough to do the job, or to replace the parts needed. the hinge pin part number is 16910. is the base is bent the part number is 240151-1. If the lower portion of the mixer itself is bent or warped this is a serious problem and will require you to dissassemble the entire unit. part number for the lower gearcase is 240350-4 Please not that all the parts list are white in colour. hope this helps.

It appears that you've got some internal transmission gear issues, and a situation similar to my wife's mixer, which we got new in Dec 2006. It could be as simple as the gears have become loose and are making different contact, hence the noise. The higher the speed, the louder, higher pitched sound you'll get. It may also be indicative of a potential gear failure (after all our increasing noise, the bevel gear broke and the mixer 'froze'). If your mixer is under warranty, contact Kitchenaid. If it's out of warranty, then take it apart and do a diagnostic exam of the gearing. Whatever you find you should be able to fix yourself. Be sure to have the Kitchenaid Part Manual (Part No. 8212278 Rev D) on hand if you attempt to disassemble yourself. It also lists all the parts so that you can determine, which parts, if any have failed. You'd think that the Kitchenaid name would warranty their mixers for a lifetime... So much for quality in America today!
