I removed the reset switch and was able to disassemble it by removing the two screws holding it together. I then removed the rocker spring and retensioned it by bending it and cleaned the contacting surfaces. This made it contact properly and lo the chips are frying tonight! The only thing irritating besides the fact that a new appliance is not even tested before being offered for sale was that I had to grind down a screwdriver and notch it in the middle of the blade in order to remove the 'security screws' which held the control unit together. A little more care by the manufacturer and a little less 'security' would be apreciated.

Kitchenaid 5kpm5

The repair could be as simple as replacing the speed control switch but given the lack of response from KitchenAid you might not be able to obtain a replacement switch. Eight years can be a lifetime in appliance years.

Brand new only month old Nuvi 205 and ont turn on no reset button

I had the same problem. 
Press and hold the reset button with a ball point pen for eight seconds.
The reset button is nearly invisible. On the bottom of the unit is a grey label with a bunch of writing on it. There's a little splotch of printing with a circle, crosshairs, and the word "Reset." You'll ahve to look carefully. You can't actually SEE the button. It's beneath the circle on the label.
Use a ball point pen, press in at the circle and hold for eight seconds.
