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.

    I went back and read my suggestions.  I hope this doesn't sound too complicated because it's really not.  The only thing that you really need is a phillips-head screw driver to remove the mixer casing--it has 5 screws.  It also helps to have a diagram of what the Hall effect sensor looks like and you can down load this from the Kitcheaid website once you put in your model number.  Also, when you open the mixer up, you should be able to tell right away if the Hall sensor is securely attached to the control board.  All in all, it took me about 10-15 minutes to reseat the sensor. Of course I let the mixer run for about 10 minutes just to make sure that the problem was resolved.  I'm back in business! Good Luck!

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.

How doI fix mixer that leaks oil out beater holes


There ate two ways to fix this problem, but first there is the matter of understanding what is leaking. The oil you see leaking is actually a food safe vegetable based gear grease. The grease separates during heavy use (years of service) or when the mixer has not been used for an extended period of time. (months or years) The recommended way to fix the problem is to do a full tear down then clean then add new grease and a new gasket, cost (By Kitchenaid at a KA service center) around $140.00 US + or -, It involves shipping and around ten days in time. The second way is kinda simple and does not cost anything. Get a towel, thick and soft to protect your finish, get your wife or husband, get an extension cord, spread the towel out on an open counter top, plug the extension cord into the outlet, turn the mixer upside down on the towel, have your significant other hold the mixer by the base while you plug the mixer cord into the extension cord, turn on the mixer no more than 2 or the second click on the speed control switch / lever, hold the mixer upside down like this while the mixer is running and keep it running for at least three (3) minutes, turn the mixer off and turn it right side up and turn on again for two minutes, then do it again two or three more times, upside down for a couple minutes then back right side up and so on and so on, after about 15 minutes stop. put everything away, you are done. What you have effectively done is re-mix the grease and it should be good for another couple of years. When it starts to leak again re-mix again. Or send it to KA for the rare and unique opportunity to spend a hundred bucks that you don't' want. hope this helps. By the way if you get some drops in your mix it will not hurt anybody. But you do not want to eat a great deal of it or you will require the use of a laxative afterwards.

These mixers last for years and years. Aside from the fact that you could have a FIRE from a frayed electrical cord, interruption of power to the motor can cause additional problems. Get the Manual with all of the details on repairing the unit. Replace that power cord NOW! When the Housing is open, take a tooth brush or stiff paint brush and whisk out the debris collected inside over time. Check the contacts on the speed selector and look for any black deposits or surface material that may be there.

Kitchenaid kp26m1xer won't turn on


If the mixer died completely and no noise at all comes from the machine you need one of three things.
1. New brushes2. new speed control switch3. a new motor.

The KP26 is a 6 quart mixer of the new design, post 2002, it is easy to work on and relatively inexpensive for parts if it turns out to be the motor that will be about $100.00, the speed control about 30.00, the brushes on this mixer cannot be replaced you have to install a new motor, sry about that. Hope this helps let us know. But first check that the electric outlet you are working from has not tripped the breaker on the circuit too. I know I know it's silly to say but check the outlet first before you spend a dime on anything.

Get a Copy of the Repair Part List from Kitchenaid.com.
First thing I would do is to check the two Motor Brushes (one on each
side of the Motor Housing). Make sure they are not worn out, and when
inserted, they must both make contact with the Motor Coils. If even
one of them is not in contact with the coils, the motor will not run.
You can also remove the Motor Housing and visually verify that they
are touching the Coils.
You may also need to adjust the mixer speeds:

Remove the screw holding the End Cover and locate the three screws from the Control Plate.
All three (2 top left and right, and 1 bottom) must be adjusted. Make sure that the Control
Plate is not damaged in any way, contacts are not charred or burnt,etc...

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

When you said "the speed switch doesn't want to stay in the off position", you meant to
say "the speed switch in the OFF position does not turn OFF the mixer", or "the speed
switch physically cannot be moved to the OFF position"?

In any case, try to adjust the mixer speeds.
Obtain a copy of the K45SS Repair Part List from Kitchenaid.com.

My cuisinart 5.5 stand mixer when you press the on button it starts for a second then it stops.


Make sure the plug is securely plugged into the wall.
Next, remove and reattach any mixing arms etc that may be attached to the mixer. Having one not attached properly can result in a start, start.
If problem persistes make sure the speed is reset.

If problem continues, here is an excerpt from the user manual found here.

http://www.cuisinart.com/share/pdf/manuals/sm-55.pdf

Problem: Your stand mixer has an
overload protection device and if
overloaded, it will shut down to protect
the motor.
Solution: In the unlikely even that this
happens:
• Turn off and unplug the unit.
• Reduce the load by removing some of
the ingredients, and allow the mixer to
stand for a few minutes.
Plug in and reset the speed. If the
stand mixer does not start when you
press the on button, allow the unit to
stand for additional time.

If you are still having trouble, the product comes with a 3 year limited warranty, so if you're bought it within the last 3 years it may be covered.

Good Luck!

Mixer revs, then shuts off, will not reset


your kitchen aid has a little device inside called the hall effect sensor. These often come dislodged or just stop functioning. If you are mechanically inclined you can replace this yourself.

Mixer started and turned 1/4 revolution and stopped. Has not started again. Have power applied. What could be the problem?


Unplug, remove the beatters and try again. If still no go, unplug , insert one beatter and try using beater to turn in oppodit direct . Then, if you were able to move it. install second beter and try again. If the evil thing runs, let it run free for several minutes to clean up any gear burs or alignment issues. Good luck and never grab the beaters with the mixer plugged in.
