Question about KitchenAid K5SS Heavy Duty Commercial Stand Mixer
My mixer suddenly started working only in fast speed regardless of what position the speed switch is in. This, unfortunately, usually causes the bowls ingredients to go flying out all over. Is there hope?
I have a K5-A, bought it for my S.O., she makes Krispy Cream doughnuts with it. The speed controller on a K5 has "originally" 2 return springs. They rust / break fall out the lower vents in the white cup that covers the rear of the machine. You can remove the cap with the removal of the lone screw at the top rear of the machine. Just gently work off the cap after the screw is removed. MAKE SURE THE MACHINE IS UNPLUGGED FIRST!!! There is a funny metal flange thing that is mounted with two screws at the top on springs. This is esentialy the speed controle. It is actuated by a rod conected to the outside switch that runs up the bottom of the motor drive. You'll note the simple but effective off / on switch there. When the springs rot the funny flange thing does not return to its flat resting position and we have no low speeds. The springs attatch to the holes on eather side of the flange and stretch down to a post type mount below the speed mechanism. If you use a good light you can see and mount any small spring to these mounting points and the switch returns to rest and you have all speeds, a single light spring will work.................There, You, Go..........Reassemble.
