You need a new Rheostat, it is central to the mixer chassis and the speed knobs one each side connect directly to it.

The mixer would not come up to the speed when speed lever is moved from off position to any other speed provided. The mixer would start spinning and then stops immediately. Any suggestions?


You either need to adjust the speed control switch under the rear dome or you need to replace the switch, I think you can find on YouTube videos on how to adjust speed control switch and the part is easily available on the internet. AND!! you can do this repair without a full tear down.

The KSM150PS 325W mixer does nothing until speed control is moved up to position 8 or 10. Then when repositioned back down to say 6 it may run for a moment but then stops. It might just click on position...


You need to adjust the mixer speeds. Obtain a copy of the KSM150PS Repair Part List from Kitchenaid.com. Remove the screw holding the End Cover and locate the three screws from the Control Plate. All three (2 top left and right, and 1 bottom) must all be adjusted. 1. Loosen the lock nuts enough & Turn the 2 top screws clockwise until they cannot be turned
anymore. Leave the bottom screw alone for now.
2. Use a dab of white paint or paper whiteout to mark the positions of the Phillips screws.
3. Plug in your mixer and Set the speed selector to "Stir".
4. Turn each top screw One full turn couterclockwise (alternating between Left and Right)
Keep making one full turn at the time (for both left and right) until the motor starts running.
5. Put your hand near the Agitator shaft and allow it to brush your finger slightly. Use your
watch or clock and start counting the number of times the shaft touches your finger in
60 seconds. The correct count should be 60 RPM (Rounds Per Minute). If it is less
or more than 60, give each screw 1/4 turn counterclockwise or clockwise and start counting
again. Now tighten both lock nuts.
6. Set the speed selector to "6" and turn the bottom screw either clockwise or counterclockwise
to achieve a speed of 180 RPM.

For your reference, the planetary RPM's for the 5-qt. tilt-head Artisan Stand Mixer are as follows:
Stir speed - 60
Speed 2 - 95
Speed 4 - 135
Speed 6 - 180
Speed 8 - 225
Speed 10 - 280

The speed control doesn't work well


This problem could be due to a worn or broken speed governor. this part is located on the motor shaft of the unit and works by way of centrifugal force. This however when gone will usually make the mixers speed go up and down, not just one speed. The most likely cause of this problem is the main control board. if this has become faulty, it can make the mixer stop completely or in your case, run full speed when turn on. part number for the board is W10119326. this part can easily be changed by disconnecting all power and removing the back end cover. Once removed make note of the adjustment screws at the bottom of the board. As these are your motor speed adjustment screws, and can be very finely tuned. Once these and the spring has been removed. you can now replace the board. Hope this helps

Thanks

Hobart D300 Mixer, Will not shift from 2nd to 1st gear without coming to full stop, Ideas as to source of problem? It also seems to be making increased noise.


Hobart mixers are NOT designed to change gears while operating. The Hobart planetary gears are like the transmission in your car but, without the clutch. Everytime you change gears while unit is running you are tearing up the brass spacers, gears & seals. Time to call a QUALIFIED service tech to come out & sell you another planetary or rebuild your old one, about $2K, Buy a Varimixer if you want to change gears while unit is running, they use belts. Another planetary premature failur cause, over loading the bowl. Batters & icings- 75% bowl capacity, Dough 65% bowl capacity.

My varimixer R30 hook doesn´t seem to reach out far enuff to mix satisfactorily. Can the hook change shape just like that ? Or is the hook for some other kettle ?


This is a dough hook and would typically only be used to knead dough. Therefore, the extra clearance makes sense for kneading dough. For other mixer jobs, use other attachments.

MOTOR SPINS ON MY CLASSIC STAND MIXER BUT GEARS DON'T ENGAGE


Hi all. There is damage to the transmission caused by overloading the mixer with bread or cookie dough, or by dropping a spoon or measuring cup into the mixer while it was working.

Go to mendingshed.com and download their free kitchenaid repair manual. This manual has all you, or a repair person will need to repair your model's mixer. Mending Shed also sells needed parts.
