Contact Safety trigger only works intermittently


There should be an adjustment screw that sets the guard (contact safety) movement needed to allow actuation. Sounds like that screw is loose or fell out. That screw positions a rod that pushes a limit switch inside the tool. Look for an exploded assembly drawing showing the parts in your manual.

My Brushwacker has a broken pull start rope (model 358.795800). I figure that it shouldn't be too hard to repair it, but I would like to find a manual for repair.


Good luck on finding a manual. You can get the exploded parts drawing off of the sears parts website! I have a 32cc model 358.791580 and the pull rope broke. The pull rope assembly is located inside of the motor housing. I am having trouble removing the clutch assembly since there is no key way or screw holding it to the shaft. Does anyone know if it is threaded on?

Mixer runs at full speed only KitchenAid proffessional 6 2 years old


Hi, LAKEBAY. You didn’t provide your model number which would have been helpful and limits me in what I can offer you as a possible solution.
The symptoms you describe are indicative of a speed controller assembly going bad inside your mixer’s head and this is something you can fix this yourself.
The inspection and troubleshooting of the inside of your mixer is a DITY capability, particularly if your mixer is out of warranty. Just be sure to 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 and select a file listed under Parts List. Some models will have multiple files. Download one and check to ensure it matches your mixer model. If it doesn’t match, continue to look at other manuals until you find the correct manual that does match.
Depending on your model, locate the Governor Assembly and Control Plate Assembly on the pages titled:Motor Control Parts, or Control Assembly on pages titled: Case, Gearing and Planetary Unit. The illustrations provide an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer’s components, along with all the parts.
First inspect around the controller assembly to ensure all the wire connections are OK. It's possible a connection has come loose. Unfortunately the whole controller assembly is fabricated on a little PC board which was not meant to be 'home fixed', and my 'expertise' ends there. A local small appliance repair shop should be able to determine if the controller assembly is functioning properly or not, or you can just order replacement parts without the testing.
As far as parts go, here are four potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com. Prices for the same part can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
If you feel troubleshooting and repairing 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.
While your mixer is apart it would be ideal to 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.
Here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer.
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.
Good luck and have fun. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

Cannot control speed of mixer. always runs on high. model#kp26m1xpm


I suspect your switch problem has to do with the speed control assembly inside your mixer’s head, and yes you can order and replace it.
The inspection and troubleshooting of the inside of your mixer is a DITY capability, particularly if your mixer is out of warranty. Just be sure to have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home. Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case: KP26M1, and select one of the first two files listed under Parts List (47) (The first file, KP26M1XAZ4.pdf (304.18 KB), is for a -4 series model and the second file, KP26M1XAZ5.pdf (724.41 KB) is for a -5 series with slightly different insides, so make sure you have the correct Parts List manual.)
For a series -4 mixer, turn to pgs. 2 & 3, titled Case, Gearing And Planetary Unit that shows an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the parts. Locate Illus. No. 8, Control Assembly. This is where I suspect your problem lies. (For a series -5 mixer, turn to Pgs 4 & 5, and locate Illus. No. 18, which is the speed control assembly).
First inspect around the controller assembly to ensure that all the wire connections are OK. It's possible a connection has come loose. Unfortunately the whole controller assembly is fabricated on a little PC board filled with resistors, capacitors and other electronic parts, which was not meant to be 'home fixed'. My 'expertise' ends at being able to recognize a resistor from a capacitor, but I don't get much deeper than that. A local small appliance repair shop should be able to determine if the controller assembly is functioning properly or not.
As far as parts go, here are four potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com. Prices for the same part can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
Once 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.

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.

Good luck. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

Hi BDALLEN289. Sorry to hear about your mixer problem. Based on the symptoms you describe I suspect your problem has to do with the speed control assembly or governor assembly inside your mixer’s head and this is something you can fix this yourself.

Turn to pgs. 6 & 7 titled: Motor Control Parts that shows an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer’s electrical components, along with all the parts. Locate Illus.

Speed control faulty , only runs on 8 to10 speed.


Hi, RYLAND. You’ve assessed the problem, now you need to disassemble your mixer and replace the faulty control assembly. Unfortunately since you did not provide any model information, I kind of limited in what I can provide you for an answer, so I’ll give you a ball park answer. You suspect your problem has to do with the speed control assembly or governor assembly inside your mixer’s head and this is something you can fix this yourself.

Flex shaft came loose inside aluminum curved shaft


Here's a link to the homelite parts catalog site online.
You'll need your model # to look up exploded parts diagram for your trimmer, but you should be able to get any of the parts you need there.
On the other hand, depending on your location, a local repair shop, tool rental business or even a small auto or machine shop might be happy to do the repair and order the parts for you. I'd make some inquiries first, though, as at that point a new trimmer might be cheaper...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

send email to dewalt and request exploded view of nailer showing parts list- usually they are clear enough to figure assembly. best guess.guys at dewalt are pretty agressive these days and if you take parts in to repair shop- they will more than likely repair it on the spot for free. good luck

The Print head ribbon cable is 99% of the problems on printing! Don't worry about any cable coming from the unit to the machine itself. Now there is a Platen bar that the ink ribbon presses on to print. So if is light on one side or both you can adjust that! Go from the back side or the unit, you should see a black box thing. On each side is adjustments, stick a flat head, small, screwdriver in there and turn it. Be careful!!! You do not want to turn to hard it is plastic and will strip!!! That will adjust your platen bar.

If any more problems let me know! I work on these everyday!! Welch Systems Inc. Peoria, IL
