Question about KitchenAid KSM150PS Artisan Series Stand Mixer
I was whipping cream and when I turned the speed to 10 there was a loud pop and sparks flew out the back of my mixer (it popped the GFCI). Tried to turn it back on and same thing happened. When I opened the back there is a charred spot and a wire (not electrical) is burned off and left a welded spot on the body. Brushes appear to be in good condition.
Tanya, it sounds like there might have been a short to ground, that is when a wire comes loose and touches the housing. So you will definitely have to rewire/fix the wiring in the mixer, there is a wiring diagram in the KitchenAid service manual (http://ep.yimg.com/ty/cdn/mendingshed/kitchenaidservicemanual.pdf)
There may have also been damage to the speed control plate or phase board, either part would have burn marks on it in most cases.
You can find replacement parts here: http://www.mendingshed.com/regmixerparts.html
And as always if you have any questions give us a call, we have technicians that work on these every day at our repair shop that can help guide you in the repair.

This is a simple fix, the speed control switch needs to be replaced and you are probably going to have to do a rewire job on the wires that got welded to the frame, this really requires a trained tech to repair. If you do it wrong you will burn up the motor.

Turn screw (A) SLIGHTLY counter clockwise (left) to raise the flat
beater or clockwise (right) to lower the flat beater
2. Check the Beater Shaft (Agitator Shaft) making sure the Retaining ring
is flushed with the surface of the Planetary Assembly
Constant Pulling and Removal of the beaters can cause the Agitator shaft to move
3. If the above two still don't solve your problem, follow the service manual
directions to disassemble the Planetary Assembly and check for loose screws
