It should be still under warranty so contact the service agent or retailer where you bought it and ask for a replacement under the warranty

My mixer will only work on high speed why


Speed controllers reduce the power provided to the mixer motor and have to "soak up" some of the power not used. If the mixer was used on low speed but heavy load, it could have burned out the speed controller. Some of them fail by shorting out which means that the motor always gets full power regardless of speed setting. It sounds like your speed controller has burned out.

Why is mixing speed switch not working correctly?


How old is your appliance?

If you are just getting one speed at any speed control. Its likely that the speed control mechanism ( probably an electric one has been damaged due to ailing parts). Likely component which may fail over time are electrolyte capacitors. Take a look at the circuitry inside the food mixer.

You may need to change some parts to get back the control.

Speed control swich on Kenwood Titanium mixer


The switch on the titanium has a flimsy week point and is always breaking. This is a stupid economy by Kenwood when there is now so much good competition. Mine broke after only 6 months and Kenwood were less than helpful suggesting I took back to where I bought it - 500 miles away!! I wish I had bought a Kitchen Aid

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.

Sounds like the speed switch control has gone faulty .
If its still under warranty take it back to where you bought it with your docket and instructions and they may get it repaired for you,or replace it..
If this is a mixer it might not be designed to do this work
If its old maybe time to buy a new one.
Hope this helps.

I have a kitchen aid stand mixer KG25HOXWH.


Hi ZPAORUSKI. 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: KG25H0 (use zero and not ‘O’), and select one of the last two files listed under Parts List (9) (check to ensure this matches your mixer model. KA made a -4 series and 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.
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. Good luck. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

The speed selector switch will not stay "off'. does not catch. any movement of the mixer causes spring to pull lever out of the off position. Turned on when I was changing mixer tool catching my hand.


Hi, BLSMLK1, Sorry to hear about your KA mixer. It should never ‘bite’ the hand that feeds it, but maybe until you get your speed selector switch fixed or replaced, unplug prior to switching any mixing blades, whisker or dough hook. Power machines can break bones, or worse... From the symptoms you describe, it seems to me that the selector lever attachment screw has loosened, and possibly the speed detents have been damaged so they don’t engage the selector lever and the spring will win every time.

Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case, KSM90P, and select one of the files listed under Parts List (check to see it this matches your mixer model). Turn to pages 6 & 7, titled “Motor And Control Parts”, which provides an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer’s electrical components, along with all the parts. Locate Illus Nos. 1, 2, 3, 4, which are Pivot screw, Spring washer, Switch lever and stud, and Control plate spring respectively. Disassemble your mixer to the point of accessing your speed selector assembly, and inspect the pivot screw to see if it hasn’t worked itself loose over time. That’s the simplest thing to fix. If loose, tighten. Inspect the rest of the assembly to determine if something else hasn’t broken or gotten out of alignment. If something has broken, you can order replacement parts and install them yourself.
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.
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

Kitchenaid mixer speed


I would recommend that you first check the Hall Effect sensor which determines the mixer’s speed.  I had this exact problem and I actually went out and bought another Hall sensor for about $13.  I replaced the original sensor and made sure that the connection between the sensor and control board was nice and snug. My mixer worked as good as new! But I was curious to know if my original sensor was defective, so I put it back in mixer and again made sure all of the connections were snug and tight. Guess what?  My original sensor also made my mixer work!  There was nothing wrong with the original Hall Effect sensor except that the connection between the control board and sensor was not tight--unfortunately I didn't check the connection before I decided to buy another sensor. My guess is that the connection between the control board and the sensor probably loosens or comes undone over time from use and vibrations. To fix your problem:
1.  Download the mixer parts and diagrams from the Kitchenaid website to see what the Hall Effect sensor looks like. BTW the part number is 9703312.

2.  You'll need a phillips head screwdriver to open up the mixer gear case cover.
3.  Make sure that the connection between the control board and sensor is absolutely tight and snug.
4.  Also, make sure that the orientation of the sensor is correct.  It's difficult to tell which way the sensor should be connected because the control board has three prongs and the sensor can attach facing up or down. After you've made the connection, run the mixer. If it still doesn't work, disconnect the sensor, reconnect it with the prongs facing the opposite direction and try it again.  I actually found the right sensor orientation through a little trial and error.  But by going through this trial and error, I also had my Eureka moment when I realized that the original sensor probably would also work if it were reconnected with correct orientation.  
5.  This whole process probably takes about 10-15 minutes to perform.
6.  Finally, use your common sense and make sure to unplug the mixer before checking, connecting or disconnecting anything.

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.
