Question about KitchenAid KSM150PS Artisan Series Stand Mixer
I live in Australia and own a 240V Kitchenaid mixer and the slow speed always creeps up and it does not maintain a Speed 1/Stir speed. I've tried adjusting the speed plate and it won't slow down. Is it the fault of the governor,speed plate or phase control... Hope you could help and your time spent is much appreciated...
SOURCE: won't shift speeds
ok so the set-up looks sortof like this (lets hope the formatting of this website/your computer doesn't mess it up...)

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).

Pull the back off and there will be two screws at the top of the Speed Control Plate and a 3rd screw at the bottom. Tighten the top two screws down. email@example.com. Let me know if it works.

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

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:

I just fixed my 8 yo mixer! Would only work at highest speeds... first took it apart because it was making a terrible noise. Tthrough this site I figured out how to take it apart and replace the grease. Gears were in good shape, but a small nut fell out of the back while I was working on it. Finished putting it back together, found the spot where the nut belonged- holding the metal housing of the motor to the head. I turned it on and all I could get were the two highest speeds so I took the back panel off again and played with the bottom screw- it seems to adjust something on the wire that controls the speed. So take a philips screwdriver and adjust that screw and see if you get all the speeds back.
