The switch is probably defective. Either keep unplugging it, or contact the manufacturer to inquire about warranty info, or repair options.

This would indicate that the on off switch needs replacing or has a loose connection

Kitchen aid khm3wh beaters will not stay in mixer


4af1c3a0-ea73-4dcd-97e5-dec0fe71b67d.png
I fixed mine (my wife's). Kitchenaid 3-Speed Hand Mixer KHM3WH. Here's how I did it.
This is a pretty old mixer. My wife bought it at a thrift store for $1. She brought it home, we found the beaters and whisk beaters on eBay. Paid $34.00 for both sets of beaters, but when we received them we found they would not stay in the mixer. Oh we also bought the alternative/replacement beaters from Sears, parts online. I don't think those will work with my fix. However with some $0.92 rubber washers from Lowe's and a heavy duty paperclip I fixed the mixer, and it works flawlessly. Maybe some stainless steel wire would be a better, more permanent fix.

My KitchenAid KSM90 will not turn off. All the speed settings seem to work, it just won't shut off. I have it open, but don't understand how the switch operates such that it turns the mixer off. The...


I determined that the switch that controls whether the mixer is on or off is controlled by a copper bar with a contact. The contact got fused to the copper bar, possibly due to a short. Since the contact got fused to the copper bar, the circuit was always connected, so the mixer was always on. The solution was to 1) unplug the mixer, and 2) take a screw driver and gently pry the contact away from the copper bar. When the mixer is in the off position, the copper bar and contact are no longer in contact. When the mixer is on, the copper bar and contact make contact. My mixer now works just fine. Yea!

The latch/switch on the speed control board is stuck


You need to take the back cover off and then split the gear cases to find the mechanical reason why the lever is stuck. Take the motor off the pedestal, remove the planetary and undo the 9 screws that hold the bottom gearcase to the top housing. You will need to unplug the white and the black wires from one side of the speed control plate.

Today mixer stopped while mixing.


OK, you mentioned everything except the brand. I found on some models of Sunbeam mixers that the speed governor would fail due to the control knob screw being loose.

On that particular model, the screw is behind a stick-on label in the center of the knob. Peel off the label and make sure the screw is tight.

If your mixer isn't a Sunbeam, please advise.

Overloaded Motor


Are you mixing at a high speed. For bread, you shouldn't go above a '2' setting on most of the mixers and keep the time fairly short -- more isn't needed.

Sorry if this is redundant, but info posted to another problem works here as well:

KitchenAid has one of the best user forums of any company as far as I'm concerned. The participants are great and the monitors are exceptional (some of the best problem solvers you are likely to run across). You may find your experience already has a thread, if not, post it. I checked in and they seem to have added a video library that has some of the topics I've seen posted at this site.
