Question about KitchenAid KT2651X Epicurean Stand Mixer
Hello, I have the mixer as stated above. My problem is that whenever you switch it on (stir-10) it goes into the highest speed. Switch control doesn't seem to have control of speed. I looked inside the cover, cleaned the dust build up and electrical contacts but this did not help.
I figured the resistor for the speed on the PCB logic board must be defective. I need a replacement board. Specs on the board says FSP.
Some numbers (PART nos?)
I took a picture is you'd like me to send you a file.
Need to know where to get this board.
Joedeven, I would recommend that you first check the Hall effect sensor which determines the speed. I had this exact problem and I actually went out and bought another Hall sensor for about $13. I replaced the original sensor and made sure that the connection between the sensor and control board was nice and snug. My blender worked as good as new! But I was curious to know if my original sensor was defective so I put it back in mixer and again made sure all of the connections were tight. Guess what? My original sensor also made my mixer work! There was nothing wrong with my original Hall effect sensor except the connection between the control board and sensor was not adequate--unfortunately I didn't check the connections before I decided to buy another one. My guess is that the connection between the control board and the sensor probably loosens or comes undone over time from use and vibrations.
1. Download the mixer parts and diagrams from the Kitchenaid website to see what the Hall effect sensor looks like. BTW the part number is 9703312. 2. You'll need a phillips head screwdriver to open up the mixer. 3. Make sure that the connection between the control board and sensor is absolutely tight and snug. 4. Also, make sure that the orientation of the sensor connection between the control board and sensor is correct. it's hard to know which way the sensor should be connected because the control board has three prongs and the sensor can attach facing up or facing down. If, after you've made the connections, the mixer still doesn't work. Disconnect the sensor and reconnect it with the prongs facing the opposite direction and try it. I actually found the right orientation through trial and error. By going through this trial and error, I also had my Eureka moment when I realized that the original sensor probably would also work it were reconnected with correct orientation. 5. This whole process probably takes less than 10-15 minutes to perform.

I just did this last week!
1 Unplug Mixer 2 Remove screw on TOP of mixer body, at back. 3 Remove rear cover and paper-gasket thing (its not the end of the world if you end up tearing it a little). 4 the phase control (little circuit board w/wires) is at the top (you should see it very easily) held on by one screw, remove it. 5 when the circuit board is unscrewed, disconnect all the wires that are connected FROM THE CIRCUIT BOARD to the black control plate (NOT all wires-there should be 4 left on the control plate at this point). you don't need to remember where all the colors go as the control plate is labeled->but looking at them and making sure you understand the abbreviations would be beneficial (BK=black, BL=Blue RW=Red&White W=white R=red etc. 6 install new phase control (screw), either buy new thermal grease (used to keep the board cool->it transfers heat to the mixer's housing) or try to salvage what you can from the old one. 7 connect wires, paying attention to labels. 8 reinstall paper gasket, then cover, then screw to hold on back- cover.

ok to answer both of your questions. the mixer needs a new speed selector switch. it sounds to me like the contacts are burnt out or worn out one. the motor is fine its just the motor isnt getting the right voltage from the switch. its either on or off or medium speed or no speed. either way you both have to replace the switches. you can get the parts and do it yourself at kitchenaid.com or your local appliance store should be able to get them for you to.

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
