Question about KitchenAid KP26M1X Stand Mixer
I took off the rear cover for my wife to clean flour off the vents and when I replaced the cover the unit would not turn on. I checked the current and it has 123v to the control panel. I checked for loose connections and when I moved the control panel it came on at the highest speed. Has me stumped ????

When you removed the cover you exposed the speed control switch, the black and copper rectangle object under the cover. When you cleaned it you either loosened one or all three of the 3 aluminium screws that are in the top two corners and the bottom center of the speed control switch. You only have to move one of the top two screws a quarter turn in either direction to place the mixer out of sync. The bottom center screw controls the upper speeds and the top two control speed from stir to medium. You can Google speed tune kitchenaid mixer and you will find one or two good videos on how to speed time the mixer. Hope that hlpes if not get back to us so we can Fixya.

The model number shown is for the Professional series which does not have a separate rear cover. Below are links to KitchenAid mixer Service Manuals:

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.

I am sure #10 in the highest speed, but are you saying it will only run at #10? if so I would start by removing the cover again. Hopefully no parts are missing. Make sure the selector switch is moving things on the board if possible. I mean if you can move it with you finger you should be able to move it with the selector lever. Sorry for the trouble but I have never taken mine apart I just clean the out side. I do no this. Sometimes I must take something apart and reassemble them several times before getting them to work the way they are supposed to.
Best of luck
