Troy crisp may be right. There is a mechanical governor then maintains speed regardless of load, and if it is stuck it will cause the motor to run too fast or too slow. It is not hard to get to, but I would not go there unless you are familiar with working with electrical appliances.

I have a KitchenAid KSM90 Stand Mixer and it will only run on Speed 8. Any ideas?


Your description is very incomplete. Does it not start turning until the lever is at position 8 or does it run at high speed from the moment it starts at position 1?
If it's not starting until position 8 then the problem is probably mechanical and will require some parts to be replaced or adjusted.
If it starts on high speed at position 1 then it's likely you need to replace the phase board under the back cover at the top.
Whatever you decide to do check the carbon brushes first as worn out brushes can sometimes create funny speed problems.

KitchenAid standmixer (professional 5 pro) makes clunking noise when attachment is in hub.Grinderworm (from food grinder) slips rotation regularly as well.Without attachment everything sounds normal.


Open the gearbox up and look inside, the damage will be obvious once you clean the grease away. You aren't going to fix it from the outside so opening it is going to be part of the solution.

I just got a kitchAid standmixer today and I'm sooo happy,but when I turned it on i noticed a little spark going out from where i should change the speed ,, is that normal or do I have to return i


You are probably seeing some dust or the brushes wearing in, unless you smell something burning, its may be just breaking issues. Any electric motor will have small sparks at the brushes. Are they sort of behind the round brush replacement screws?

We have a K45SS mixer problem. When it is on the lowest setting it hums and the beaters barely turn. The next setting up has a noise but the higher speed settings work just fine. What is the problem?


the lower setting is for stirring. this is a high quality machine that is made to take a beating. you are just hearing the motor wind up. think of it like a jet engine starting, its made to run its smoothest at high rpm's, so it sounds funny at low rpm's but nothing is wrong with it.

Kitchenaid mixer motor quit , I dont really see any thing wrong with the brushes.


Obtain a copy of the Repair Part List for your model from Kitchenaid.com.
Download a Copy of the Kitchenaid Service manual.

First, you may want to adjust the mixer's speeds:

1. Loosen the lock nuts enough & Turn the 2 top screws clockwise until they cannot be turned
anymore. Leave the bottom screw alone for now.
2. Use a dab of white paint or paper whiteout to mark the positions of the Phillips screws.
3. Plug in your mixer and Set the speed selector to "Stir".
4. Turn each top screw One full turn couterclockwise (alternating between Left and Right)
Keep making one full turn at the time (for both left and right) until the motor starts running.
5. Put your hand near the Agitator shaft and allow it to brush your finger slightly. Use your
watch or clock and start counting the number of times the shaft touches your finger in
60 seconds. The correct count should be 60 RPM (Rounds Per Minute). If it is less
or more than 60, give each screw 1/4 turn counterclockwise or clockwise and start counting
again. Now tighten both lock nuts.
6. Set the speed selector to "6" and turn the bottom screw either clockwise or counterclockwise
to achieve a speed of 180 RPM.

For your reference, the planetary RPM's for the 5-qt. tilt-head Artisan Stand Mixer are as follows:
Stir speed - 60
Speed 2 - 95
Speed 4 - 135
Speed 6 - 180
Speed 8 - 225
Speed 10 - 280

Second, if the mixer won't run:
Remove the Control Plate Assembly (36), the Phase Control Board (39)
and the motor Governor Assembly (35). Inspect for loose connections,
burnt or damaged components. If they seem to look OK, re-assemble
them and test the mixer. If the motor still won't run, then I might suspect
a defective Phase Control Board (39).

When my 85 year old mother, who no longer does much cooking or baking, heard that my trusty KitchenAid stand mixer finally gave up the ghost after 25 years of great service, she sent me her KitchenAid...


The mixer normally has it's gearbox packed with (quite thick) grease. Over time it can heat up and become more fluid and leak out. I would guess that the amount of oil you saw would not be a problem to loose. If it were mine, I would use it and not worry. If you do feel you need to check, the grease is packed in the front of the head. You will need to remove the head, split it (you will need to remove the band and planetary) and then you can see the gears.

KitchenAid 2671 onmly run Stir and Second at high speed


Hi. Goto kitchenaid.com and download the parts catalog for your mixer model, these drawings will assist you in the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer.

You'll need to replace the speed control in your mixer. This is a common problem. Be prepared to wait at least a month for your parts to arrive. Unplug your mixer before you open it up.

If you're still under warranty call kitchenaid!

If this solution has assisted you, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45

My kitchenaid standmixer started to smoke, need to open


See my posts on removing the motor cover. DO NOT USE this mixer if it smoked. Something needs to burn to cause smoke. I doubt you can fix this without new parts.
