    I have the same problem. After I tried to grind meat using the a grinding attachement, the mixer will not mix above speed 2. It also sounds like there is some metal mashing noises.

Are you mixing at a high speed. For bread, you shouldn't go above a '2' setting on most of the mixers and keep the time fairly short -- more isn't needed.

Sorry if this is redundant, but info posted to another problem works here as well:

KitchenAid has one of the best user forums of any company as far as I'm concerned. The participants are great and the monitors are exceptional (some of the best problem solvers you are likely to run across). You may find your experience already has a thread, if not, post it. I checked in and they seem to have added a video library that has some of the topics I've seen posted at this site.

Krups ka950 food mixer no speed control always top speed


The speed selector circuit has been compromised but either an electrical short, or disruption from particles that entered the switching mechanism and covered contacts. Needs technical attention.

Kitchenaid motor slows


If it slows down when mixing, it is most likely that the mixer is being asked to do more than it is capable of. If it slows down when nothing is in the bowl, then the motor/gears/lubrication needs looking after.

I have a KM800 and the speed setting doesn't work properly, on slow it will go fast then slow and doesn't speed up and slow down as it should. is this repairable, as it's bloody annoying when you disa


Hi Emma,
Not going to be much help here to be honest. We have the KM020 and this is the only problem we have had with heavy machine use in 4 years - and a minor issue at that.
This place is good for spare parts http://www.buyspares.co.uk/

If you're in the UK, you can call this number 02392 392 333 and give them your post code, they'll let you know who the local service agent is.
All the best,

The mixer simply doesn't turn on. Worked fine yesterday. Today it seems like it's just dead


HI.Let me jusk ask if yiou also tried to connet to another socket.Let me just clarify that the motor itself did not work /rotate as well.Prior to that situation,have you tried to mix more than what is the capacity of your mixer.If possible motor was overworked/that's why its coil was burnt.There. are possibilities then. First might be that the mixers terminals inside will no longer engaged properly that's why it opens the circuit.Second the motor isn't working because the rotor and armatures coil was burnt because it runs beyond its maximum wattage capacity that's why it draws much current beyond the rotors coil capacity.Did you mixed something heavy.the motor works heavier the last time you used the unit?

Mixer quit working


Quite likely you overloaded the capacity of the motor and it simply overheated. The brushes inside the motor may be burned out/corroded. I suggest putting a light load on it and seeing how it performs. Often, when this kind of thing occurs, a bit of light duty use will get the motor back into good working order. But be careful to not over-tax the unit again. There are several different KitchenAid mixers on the market, some nothing more than ornamental, all the way up to commercial-grade.

Kitchen Aid Mixer has a sound but it doesn't have power to mix


Hi. Goto www.mendingshed.com and download the free Kitchenaid Service Manual.

You may have overloaded the mixer with bread or cookie dough, causing internal damage to the gears.

If you plan to do the repair yourself, you might also consider removing the old grease and oil. Remove, clean and regrease the planetary gear assembly as well. This will add years of life to your mixer.

Regrease with Chevron FM ALC EP-2 product.
