Kitchenaid mixer will not run on speeds LOW SPEEDS only runs on speed ten. I've replaced the phase board and that was not the issue. what else could be causing this problem


If it does not start at all until you get to speed 10 then look for a broken wire an any of the wires NOT associated with the phase board. Highly unlikely since you have just been there. Next look at the operation of the switch low down inside the black speed control board. There is a primitive switch there operated by a shaft from your speed control lever. You may find the switch is not activating until it gets right up to speed 10. Have you checked the carbon brushes? The phase board you have just done is normally the culprit for your problem.

Fails to run


The governor should move back and forth as the speed control goes from speeds 1 through 10. It's purpose is to push on the control plate in order to obtain the different motor speeds.

Kitchenaid mixer motor quit , I dont really see any thing wrong with the brushes.


Obtain a copy of the Repair Part List for your model from Kitchenaid.com.
Download a Copy of the Kitchenaid Service manual.

First, you may want to adjust the mixer's speeds:

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

Second, if the mixer won't run:
Remove the Control Plate Assembly (36), the Phase Control Board (39)
and the motor Governor Assembly (35). Inspect for loose connections,
burnt or damaged components. If they seem to look OK, re-assemble
them and test the mixer. If the motor still won't run, then I might suspect
a defective Phase Control Board (39).

One of my blades is stuck and I can't engage the release


Make sure your Beater can slip in and out of the Beater Shaft
easily. Do not force the beater onto the Shaft if the shaft is bent.
If it cannot be removed easily by hand, use a soft rubber mallet
(not a steel hammer) to slightly tap the beater so it can be moved
up and down the shaft or from side to side. Then you can easily
turn the beater left and remove it from the shaft.

From Kitchenaid Manual:
To Attach Flat Beater, Wire Whip, or Dough Hook
1. Turn speed control to OFF.
2. Unplug stand mixer or disconnect power.
3. Tilt motor head back.
4. Slip beater onto beater shaft and press upward
as far as possible.
5. Turn beater to right, hooking beater over pin on shaft.
6. Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.

4. Press beater upward as far as possible and turn left.

I was grinding some meat and my mixer got very hot. I let it cool down and now it only operates at one speed.


I am not sure what has happened to your mixer but, select
different speeds from Stir to 10. If it runs OK, then there is
nothing to worry about, otherwise do the following to re-adjust the mixer's speeds:

Get a copy of the Repair Part List of your model 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.

The KSM150PS 325W mixer does nothing until speed control is moved up to position 8 or 10. Then when repositioned back down to say 6 it may run for a moment but then stops. It might just click on position...

Same speed


I believe the speed control needs to be replaced. It controls how much electricity is sent to the motor.

Slips in all gears


you have no speed 1,2,3 right?first thing to do is drop the planetary (this is the bottom with the beater shaft)undo the bolt and it will drop down.you will see 1 gear,that gear should not spin without the shaft spinning too.if it does you have a sheared key on the gear.if you have access to the transmission check the worm gear attached to the motor it has a roll pin through it make sure its not sheared.then look at the top left gear assembly and check for sheared (broken)keys.clean up all the parts,if you dont you could miss something.let me know.
