Question about KitchenAid KP26M1X Stand Mixer
After it stopped, I turn off and unplug for a few minutes. Than plugged in again. Turn on the mixer at the #1 speed, and it was mixing at the highest number #10 speed. It was going so fast, and everything was going everywhere. So I tried to unplug and plug in again. The same thing happen.
This happen a couple of months ago, but when I unplug and plug back in it work just find. I can not use my mixer.
Model: 6-Quart Stand Mixer
Model # KP26MIXCM
Serial # WT5080931
What can I do to repair my mixer?
Mount Joy, PA
I'm not sure if you are still having the problem. But I would start by checking the Hall effect sensor. I had the same problem and I had to reseat the sensor connections to the control board. Mine works like new. The sensor basically tells the mixer how fast to mix. In my case, the sensor became loose possibly from the vibrations and use of the mixer. So make sure the Hall sensor is completely seated on the control board. Second, if this doesn't work, change the orientation of the sensor on the control board. The control board has three little prongs that the sensor attaches to. It was difficult for me to figure out how the sensor should be connected. So I used trial and error, but found the correct orientation and mine is working like new. If neither of these suggestions work, I would replace the Hall sensor. Actually, I went out and bought a new one for $13 and installed it before I realized that my old one was still good. The problem was that connection between the original sensor and board had become loose. I hope this helps. BTW the part number for the Hall sensor is 9703312.

OK, you mentioned everything except the brand. I found on some models of Sunbeam mixers that the speed governor would fail due to the control knob screw being loose.
On that particular model, the screw is behind a stick-on label in the center of the knob. Peel off the label and make sure the screw is tight.
If your mixer isn't a Sunbeam, please advise.
