Hi i can see your problem there, if you can remove to top cover of your mixer its better cuz' you can see the slider on your speed arm spray it with WD40 rust remover, or any brand that you have wait up to 30 min' to 1 hr and try move slide arm if not try again puting some rust remover, and if it moves its better and then clean it with contact cleaner and if you don't have try lacquer thinner use brush. and dry it up to 2 to 3 hrs to be sure.


peace!

Kitchenaid KSM150 Mixer's speed Off has become High and speeds 1-10 have become Off


The starting position for those top speed control plate screws with the lock nuts it 8 full turns in when you fit the plate. Correct adjustment begins in or out from that point. The bottom screw should have been left where it was to start with as that is for adjusting the start position so that when the lever closes the switch contacts to start the mixer the plate only starts moving when the lever moves to the second click. Try and get the bottom one roughly right and then work on the top ones. Turn it to the first click on the speed lever and then EVENLY adjust the 2 top screws to have the planetary turn 13 to 15 times per 15 seconds. Lock up the lock nuts and then check that the bottom screw is in the correct position with speed increasing a small amount as the lever slips into the second click.

Why wont my classic kitchenaid mixer switch off


Good Morning,

There is a spring inside your mixer attached to the speed control switch and speed control arm, the spring can sometimes get caught on the slide bar that is just below it inside the mixer. The other reason is that the speed control switch plate in the rear of the machine (that the spring attaches to) vibrates the three speed adjustment screws out or in and the spring will pull the speed switch (control arm that you use to control mixing speed when using the mixer) back to the stir position after you try to turn the mixer off.

If it is a spring problem you will have to do a full tear down to get at the spring and either free it or replace it. If it is a problem with the adjustment screws on the speed plate, that can be handled at the rear of the machine and is twice as easy to get at but sometimes much more frustrating to adjust. There are "YouTube" videos on the internet that will walk you through the process of adjusting your speed control plate just Google "adjusting speed on kitchenaid mixer" I hope this helps. please let us know if it does and if you have other questions just post them here and we will "FixYa"

How do I fix a speed control switch that doesn't stay in the off position?


My daughter had this problem with her mixer. The problem is that the screw that holds the speed lever has come loose. To get at the screw you have to dismantle the head. It took me about 1/2 hour to take it apart and put it back together. It is not that hard, except that you have to drive a pin out of the beater shaft. Works great now.

Control lever slips out of off position. If you slide it to off it slips back to position 1 or 2.


Unfortunately that's a big labour job and almost zero parts job. The case needs to be split so you can get inside it, the screw that the lever pivots on is either loose or the lever arm is bent, it will be one or the other.

KitchenAid Speeds are offset


Ideally you need to fix what's bent and that normally would involve splitting the cases to get at and repair or change the speed control lever. If you don't want to do that then removing the back cover and altering the adjustments and maybe bending the switch contacts may make it operate at both ends of the speed control.

Model K5SS -- The speed control lever will not stay in the slowest position - STIR - but will pop over to the next position - 2. Can I adjust anything to fix this problem?


Open up the Motor Housing and inspect the Switch Lever with Stud.
The Lower Gearcase has many depressions which allow the stud to
snap into it when the Speed Selection lever is moved. If the Stud
is worn out then there isn't much you can do but replacing it.
3184193 is the Switch Lever And Stud part number for your model.

Kitchenaid stand mixer will not stay in the off position.


There is a spring, item #4, which hooks on to the bottom of the control plate, item # 25, and pulls it back when you move the lever to off. Remove the rear cover and see if that spring is still connected to the control plate and to the lever arm, Item # 3. Here is the diagram:

Can't move the lever to start the machine - it's frozen on off position.


Unplug first. Mixers can detach from the bowl base. You may have a lockout either in the latch mechanism or in the beaters. Try removing the mixer head from the base and the beaters from their sockets. Then plug in and try switch. If not working, unplug and attach beaters. Replug and try. Then attach to base and try again.

Make sure speed control does not have safety feature requiring to press in before turning control.

Good Luck.
