Question about KitchenAid Classic Stand Mixer
PC1546. Replacing your speed control
lever is a pretty simple repair job. The inspection
and troubleshooting of the inside of your mixer is a DITY capability,
particularly if your mixer is out of warranty. Just be sure to have the Parts
List manual on hand. If you're lacking
one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website at: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> and select “Consumer” for User Type, then enter the 6 character Model Number, in your case, KSM75W, and select the file listed under Parts List (1) KSM75WH1.pdf (341.26 KB) and save that to your computer. (Check that it matches your mixer model).
Turn to pages 6 & 7, titled “Motor And Control Parts”, which provides an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer’s electrical components, along with all the parts. Locate Illus Nos. 1, 2, 3, 4, which are Pivot screw, Spring washer, Switch lever and stud, and Control plate spring respectively. Disassemble your mixer to the point of accessing your speed selector assembly, and inspect the pivot screw to see if it hasn’t worked itself loose over time. That’s the simplest thing to fix. If loose, tighten. Inspect the rest of the assembly to determine if something else hasn’t broken or gotten out of alignment. If something has broken, you can order replacement parts and install them yourself.
As far as parts go, here are five potential online vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com (for grease). Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do some comparison shopping.
While your mixer is apart it would be ideal to check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the gears, etc. It can be messy but quite gratifying to diagnose and repair your mixer yourself.
Here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer.
Good luck and have fun. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA
