I just searched the KA parts data base for this model and there is no such part???


There are a few parts that make up the speed control mechanism, the selector can only be the knob and lever. That moves the speed control plate which is the ********* square thing under the back cap that tilts when the lever is operated. There is a governor on the end of the armature under that control plate, that governs the speed by cutting the power through a circuit to maintain an even speed. Above the black control plate is a PCB (phase board I think they call it) that along with the other bits & pieces regulates the power to the control plate.

KitchenAid ACCOLADE 400 Mixer. When mixing dough the bowl jumps out of the bowl lock. How do in resolve this problem?


Make sure that the bowl is fully tightened in the bowl lock. If this does not solve the problem it may be that the lock disc itself needs to be replaced or that the amount of dough is more than the dough hook can handle.

has the breakdown of the parts. Item 8 is the controller board and item 9 is a sensor which monitors the speed. If either one is fried it will run wide open and then quit.

Motor now has two speeds: off and 10 (highest) -


Hi REEDKL, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Based on your mixer’s symptoms, my first thought is that your mixer’s internal controller assembly (the speed knob), has gone bad. The inspection and troubleshooting of the control assembly is something you can do yourself, particularly if your mixer is out of warranty. Just be sure to have the correct Part List manual around when you start to disassemble your mixer.
If you're lacking one, you can download it from the KA website. Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in this case, KP26M1, and then select the last file: KP2671XWH3.pdf (325.07 KB) that appear under Parts List (21). Check to see that it matches your mixer model.
Turn to page 4, Case, Gearing and Planetary Assembly and locate Illus. #8, Control Assembly. This is what you’re looking for when you get the top (Illus. #1) off the mixer head.
First check to see if any of the connections have come loose. If everything looks tight then you probably need to replace it. Unfortunately the whole controller assembly is on a little PC board filled with resistors, capacitors and diodes, which was not meant to be 'home fixed' and where my ‘electronic expertise' ends. A local small appliance repair shop should be able to determine if the controller assembly is functioning properly or not, or you can just order replacement parts without the testing.
Although you don’t need to get further inside your mixer to make this repair, here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer that you might want to keep in your ‘toolbox’, should you have to delve inside your mixer in the future. The mixers displayed in the links may be different than your KA model, but the principles are the same.
Between these three websites and their excellent pictures and descriptions and your Parts List manual, you should now be able replace any part to your KA mixer.
If you feel this repair 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 and have fun. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

How do I replace the Speed Control Knob on the K5 Kitchenaid Pro


Hi PETER, Happy New Year! Your Speed Control Knob can be replaced quite easily (OK, maybe with a little effort) by yourself, if you are a DITY type person, feel adventurous, and your mixer is not under warranty.
Before you start taking your mixer apart, be sure you have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website at: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case use KSM50P (Your K5SS mixer falls within this manual), and select the first file KSM50P.pdf (438.31 KB) listed under Parts List (4) and then check to verify this matches your mixer model.
Your speed control assembly is attached to the bottom of the top part of the mixer’s head (or Illus. No 1, Gearcase Motor Housing, on pgs 4 & 5).
Turn to pages 6 & 7, titled: “Motor And Control Parts”, which provides an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixers electrical components, along with all the parts. Locate lllus. Nos. 1, 2, 3, 4 - Pivot screw, Spring Washer, Switch Lever and Stud, and Control plate spring, respectively, which is the speed control handle assembly and Illus No. 5 and 6 - Speed Link & Cam and Flat Spring. Carefully inspect these parts to see if they have not come loose, particularly the Pivot Screw and Spring Washer. Also check to see if the Speed Link & Cam hasn’t shifted from its position. You should be able to see if something just needs to be tightened or if parts need to be replaced.
Also, with your mixer 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.
As far as parts go, here are five potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com. Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
Finally, here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer. The mixers displayed in the links may be different than your KA model, but the principles are the same.
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, should you decide to go that route.
If you feel this repair 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.

My mixer master (Accolade 400) will only run at top speed


Hi JENNY, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Do not despair; there is a way to fix your KA mixer. From the symptoms you’re describing is sounds like your mixer’s (speed) Control Assembly and/or the Hall Effect Sensor has gone bad and either one or both parts need to be replaced.
As your mixer is out of warranty, the inspection and troubleshooting of the control assembly is something you can do yourself, particularly if your mixer is out of warranty. Just be sure to have the correct Part List manual around when you start to disassemble your mixer.
If you're lacking one, you can download it from the KA website at: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides, and enter the 6 character model number, in this case, KN15E1X, and then select the first file, KN15E1XBW0.pdf (335.24 KB) that appears under Parts List (17). (check to see if this matches your mixer model).
Turn to pages 4 & 5 titled, "Case, Gearing and Planetary Assembly", which provides an exploded view for the assembly and disassembly of the mixer and locate Illus. Nos.8 & 9, Control Assembly and Hall Effect Sensor, respectively. I suspect one or both of these parts that are the cause of your mixer’s speed woes. Since the (speed) Control Assembly is the more complicated of the two, that’s where I’d focus my attention. The Hall Effect sensor is a very simple device and rarely goes bad.
First check to see if any of the connections have come loose from your Control Assembly. If everything looks tight then you need to replace it. Unfortunately the whole controller assembly is on a little PC board filled with resistors and capacitors, which was not meant to be 'home fixed' and my 'expertise' ends there. A local small appliance repair shop should be able to determine if the controller assembly is functioning properly or not. Or you can just order replacement parts without the testing.
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.
Here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer. The mixers displayed in the links are different KA models, but the principles are the same.

Mixer runs ,then stops, and now has lost all lower speeds.


Hi DALE, from the symptoms you describe, it sounds like you've got problems in your (speed) control assembly. If your mixer were out of warranty, I'll tell you that you could fix it yourself, but as your mixer is less than one year old, let KA fix it or replace your mixer on their dime. Contact them immediately and tell them about your problem with the speed control.
The KA website is at: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home. Click on Customer Care>Contact Us> and the toll free phone number is listed to speak with someone. You can also look under the Warranty & Service Plans to see what KA will do for you. I've extracted parts of it here:
Hassle-Free Replacement Warranty
We’re so confident the quality of our products meets the exacting standards of KitchenAid that, if your mixer should fail within the first year of ownership, KitchenAid will arrange to deliver an identical or comparable replacement to your door free of charge and arrange to have your “failed” mixer returned to us.
Your replacement unit will also be covered by our one year full warranty. Please follow these instructions to receive this quality service.
If you reside in the United States and your KitchenAid® mixer should fail within the first year of ownership, simply call our toll-free Customer Satisfaction Center at 1-800-541-6390, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.,
Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, Eastern Time. Give the consultant your complete shipping address. (No P.O. Box Numbers, please.)

When you receive your replacement mixer, use the carton and packing materials to pack-up your “failed” mixer. In the carton, include your name and address on a sheet of paper along with a copy of the proof of purchase (register receipt, credit card charge slip, etc.).

I hope this helps. Good Luck with KA! - Howard, Burke, VA
