There is an adjustment screw and a system for setting it. You can find a video of it here (or just a ton of people who know all about these mixers). I just found it while trying to troubleshoot the same problem for my wifes mixer.

It sounds like you may have broken the gear in the head of the mixer. I would call this a Advanced fix since you need to press the pin out of the shaft to put the new gear on. The parts are available from online parts stores, and the manuals and part lists are available from KitchenAid HERE.

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. bakerboy49203@yahoo.com. Let me know if it works.

SOURCE: I have a KitchenAid Pro 600 stand mixer, and it

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!

SOURCE: How do I replace the Speed Control Knob on the K5 Kitchenaid Pro

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.

Between these three websites and their excellent pictures and descriptions and your Parts List manual, you should now be able to completely disassemble and reassemble your mixer, should you decide to go that route.
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

Kitchenaid 600 pro


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.

325 k5ss mixer stir speed not working, but works in all other gears


First congrats on the great mixer that you have. next the pro 6 or professional 600 series mixers are of an entirely different design than the one that you have even though they are both bowl lift. Do you really need 6 quarts capacity? The pro series is a 575 watt mixer BTW, and it will have more power available to you IF you are doing bread or a lot of food grinding, if that is a requirement that you have then the 6 / 600 series is the better suited mixer but if all you are doing is general medium to light mixing duties then fix and keep the K5SS it a great machine,

Kitchen aid professional stops spinning


the pro series 600 has a worm gear, a worm follower gear, a bevel gear, and tree bearings the front rear and thrust bearings any of the above will cause the mixer to halt, to operate noisily, or grind, you need to open it up and look under the transmission cover. If it is an older model it could also be the transmission cover if it is a plastic one, My first thoughts is it is the worm follower gear. hope this helps you in the right direction.

I have a kitchenaid 600 professional stand mixer. I was told that you can only use the dough hook with setting 2 for only 5 minutes. What do you do for recipes requiring a longer time for kneading? Is...


You can knead longer than that, but you run the risk of over heating the mixer because at that point the dough is very firm. Your best bet is to knead it by hand.
