Question about KitchenAid K45SS Classic Stand Mixer
I've tried to adjust he screws on the contac plate so that the mixer will go to the right speed but the bottom contact seems like it always want to stay open at the slow speeds which turns off the motor?
Ok so the set-up looks sortof like this (lets hope the formatting of this website/your computer doesn't mess it up...)
/ / \ \ \/ | | ___ /\ | | <B
A is the rivet holding the arm to the plastic body B is the contact with a little tab. C is the copper arm D is the arm's contact
there is a copper arm (C) that has a contact on one end (D). If this contact is ALWAYS open (should only be open when mixer is off) it is either bent (carefully reform) or has come loose at the rivet marked A. On mine, the rivet at postn. A had come loose, i simply rotated it so that the contacts touched and super-glued the copper to the plastic (which should be rivited).
Since the copper was not discolored, I knew that the temps should not be too high for the super glue to handle (not in my opinion anyway).
