It sounds like you may have an issue with your main board. If this is faulty you can have irratic behaviour or none what so ever. You can visually inspect this by first removing the power. Then Remove the rear access panel. After this is removed you can see the main board. Inspect it for any burned marks or wires. Also you can smell for any burning as this can prove useful. Part number for the board is W10119326. Hope this helps.

One speed on slide switch will not go high or low

It's most likely a bad sensor. If a new sensor doesn't fix the problem, then the circuit board would have to be replaced as well.

When strart the mixer it go by 15 seconds and stop

you need to replace the speed control plate in the back of the mixer, there is a chance that it just need adjusting by way of the three silver screws on the plate but the part is cheap enough that it is worth replacing, you can find the part on ebay and instructions step by step on youtube.

Not working at all

Hello Aliceoye,

I understand that you are haveing a problem with you Kitchen Aid Mixer. The reason your mixer is not comming on at all is either the brushed or the speed switch.

First lets check the brushed. On both sides of there are little plastic holders with a slot in them. Remove one at a time, if there is still a black material at the end of the spring then that one is good. Now look up inside the hole and see the little notch stick down make sure that you put the tappered side up toward that and screw the cap back on. Do the same thing to the other side. Now check and see if the unit runs. If it stell does not run lets go the the next possibility.

Now we are going to check the speed switch.
1. Remove the back cover.
2. Take a electrical meter and check the power coming in to the unit the white and black wire, got voltage, unit still not working, unplug and lets proceed.
3. Move the speed switch backwards and forwards and see if the the shaft is moving the plate at the back of the unit that the wires are attached to. Yes, then your speed switch is bad.
4. Put everything back together and order this part PS1957234 the part cost $20.48 and can be purchased from partselect and the following link

Thank you for choosing FixYa and we look forward to answer anymore questions you may have. If you have anymore questions please post them to this thread.

575 watt 6qt stand mixer. start out on low speed

Hi. If your mixer is still under warranty, call Kitchenaid, they are usually very good at replacing mixers under warranty.

If you're out of warranty, you'll need to order a new speed control board. Use the following link to download the parts catalog for your mixer.

You can remove and replace this board yourself. Use the drawings to assist you with the project.

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

Mixer does not function at "stir" and lower speeds Does OK at mid and high speeds

Remove the brushes. Two black screws, one on each side. Pay close attention to orientation. MUST INSERT THE SAME EXACT WAY! Use electrical contact cleaner. I said electrical contact cleaner, put the WD40 back in the drawer!!! Using electrical contact cleaner, clean the contacts. Now clean them again, now repeat two or three more times. Spray SOME, meaning a little, into each hole. Reassemble and try it out. If this does not fix the problem refer to the section on removing the cover to access the motor and gears. disassemble clean the motor's brush surface and the contacts. if you don't know what I'm talking about then stop and call a pro.
This is a very common reaccuring problem with these things. Especially when meat grinding or cookie doughing with it. If you move to replace, get a stronger model, like the 500 or the 600. No, I do not sit around repairing mixers all day. I just happen to know a lot about the ones my wife has destroyed. Some two or even three times. after a while it pays to go get the right equipement.

Mixer just won't turn on -speed control jammed

Unplug the appliance. Take it to a well ventilated area and spray some alcohol in the slot where the switch is while trying to move it. This must be done with the appliance unplugged and the appliance must be thourughly dry when you plug it in. Use canned air or if you have one a compressor.
