That's not the sort of problem you are likely to solve at home. There is a speed control pcb and a speed sensor involved, it's not mechanical like the other old models. Best you contact Kitchen Aid and find out where your closest authorised service agent is.

250 watts k45ss classic stand mixer doesn't run


My first guess would be the speed control plate. It has three screws in an upside down triangular shape. The two screws on top control and adjust speeds 1 thru 6, and often times just one screw being out a 16th of a turn will shut the mixer off completely. I would venture that when you were removing the two stud bolts you moved the adjustment screws on the speed control plate. Remember that even a slight movement can shut down your mixer, take a phillips screwdriver and turn the top left screw one quarter turn while the machine is on, it can start on you so don't be shocked and jump with a loaded screwdriver in your hand at the back of an electrical device, stay calm, if no start then try the left screw a quarter turn, if it does not start go to a half turn on each screw, if still no start turn thr screws back to the start place and try the bottom screw a quarter turn left and right, if you do not start by now, then something is wrong in another place, go back to the brushes and take them out and check how you put them in, these are the two most common problems with a no start mixer. If this does not fix your problem or get the mixer to start please come back here with more info. If you motor raced in the first place then I would suspect the phase control board, but when it came back to normal speed it leades me away from the phase board. When the phse control board goes out the mixer only works at high speed. So please let us know so that we can help further.

Kitchenaid wont start


The possible problems could be in no real order>>>
1. your power outlet in your house
2 the power cord to the mixer broken or shorted
3 the speed control plate inside the mixer needs adjusting or replaced
4 the carbon brushes inside the motor head of the mixer need replaced
5 the armature a motor part
6 the stator a motor part
The first four are easy fixes the last two will require a full tear down. but there are lots of things to test first. let us know.

Mixer only runs at one speed


if it runs only at high speed it needs a new phase control board if the mixer is post 1978, if the mixer is pre 1978 then you will have to replace a capacitor on the end of the power cord inside the mixer. if the mixer only works on one speed that is not high speed then you need to adjust or replace the speed control plate on post 1978 mixers and the capacitor on pre 1978 machines. Hope that helps

Mixer doesn't work on all speeds


First the K45SS does not have a hall effect sensor. the pro series the epicurean seines and the pro series 5 use them, The K45ss system uses a phase control board a speed control plate and a governor for speed control. the governor rarely goes out the phase control board is a likely culprit but the system would work only in high gear if it was bad. I agree with the guest above in that it sounds like the retaining nuts on the adjusting screws of the speed control board have worked themselves loose and the adjustment screws themselves have vibrated out of proper position.

I have a KM800 and the speed setting doesn't work properly, on slow it will go fast then slow and doesn't speed up and slow down as it should. is this repairable, as it's bloody annoying when you disa


Hi Emma,
Not going to be much help here to be honest. We have the KM020 and this is the only problem we have had with heavy machine use in 4 years - and a minor issue at that.
This place is good for spare parts http://www.buyspares.co.uk/

If you're in the UK, you can call this number 02392 392 333 and give them your post code, they'll let you know who the local service agent is.
All the best,

I have a Kitchen Aid k45ss that was dropped a few years ago. I works fine but the speed switch doesn't want to stay in the off position so we have to unplug it. I opened the unit and the switch...


When you said "the speed switch doesn't want to stay in the off position", you meant to
say "the speed switch in the OFF position does not turn OFF the mixer", or "the speed
switch physically cannot be moved to the OFF position"?

In any case, try to adjust the mixer speeds.
Obtain a copy of the K45SS 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 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

West bend stand mixer # 41039 dial won't turn


If the mixer does not work on all speeds, then check motor wiring and control board.

If the mixer is less than one year old call manufacturer at the number listed on the owners manual.

To get parts for your mixer you can contact West Bend Appliance Parts - Bettervac 1-800-675-9491
