    Already know it is a defect.
    Looking for more diagnostic help.
    I may just bypass the electronics on the small motor and let it run at constant speed. Seems the regulator or its settings are faulty. Seems to have been not working properly from new as it never altered its speed, was constant, and now is playing up. Will check warranty before doing anything serious.

Twin-motor 3-way beating action
Patent pending twin-motor design enables one
motor to drive the beaters, each turning in
opposite directions. The second motor drives the
bowl, thus combined, this new technology results
in a more powerful and thorough mixing result.
Variable bowl speed
The bowl speed increases and decreases
automatically as the beater speed is increased
and decreased.
As I understand it the 'variable bowl speed' feature
is working correctly.

Your stalling condition can be caused by mixing dough
that is too thick for the machine's beaters to work with.
Bowl selector
Simply slide the bowl selector lever to the left
when using the small bowl and to the right when
using the large bowl.

The bowl selecter lever may be set to too small or large of a bowl.
Also, use the 'dough' hooks when kneeding dough.
Speed setting ranges from 1 through 10 through 12 for high.
Maybe the speed setting is too low for the mixing that you are doing.

For further information I enclosed the following link:

Good luck in cooking with your Sunbeam MX8900w.

    The stalling problem and variability occur UNLOADED.

    The speed does not increase and decrease with the main motor speed it behaves the same no matter what the main drive speed is.

    OK, it sounds to me like it could be a manufacturing defect or it got damaged somehow


    I would contact for service to the unit:

How do I fix my Kitchen Aid Professional 5 mixer that will not change speeds?

The speed adjustment is defective. You will likely need a service centre if you cannot open it up and find the problem and change any defective parts etc.

After putting flower into mixing bowl large quanity of flower is ejected when mixer is turnon at low speed. Once it starts to mix then it's ok.

Firstly, I think you mean "flour".
Put in your ingredients. Cover the mixer, head and bowl, with a dishtowel. Turn on mixer to "stir" (or lowest speed). But! Mix only for 1 or 2 seconds. Repeat this, with bowl covered, until flour is mixed in enough not to fly out.
Happy baking!

The mixer turn table won't turn? Its only a year old?

Don't know a solution, because I am having the same damn problem.
I am very discouraged with this product.
It is a piece of ****.
I am thinking about taking it out back and shooting it with my 270 I bought.
That is the only solution I know.

There should be a small lever on the base in front of and below the bowl. It will move to 2 positions. It sounds like you have it set for the small bowl but are using the large bowl. Press down on the lever and move it to the other side. If I'm right, that should correct the problem.

I have to physically hold my Artisan mixer in place or it will go off the counter, even at low speeds. Seems to rotate fine as long as the head isn't down with an attachment on and in the bowl.

I think from your description that the the head connecting to the base shaft needs tightening. Put the mixer on it's side. Look up inside the base and you'll see a small set screw.
With a flat blade screw driver tighten that screw and it should stop moving. If it doesn't you probably need another shaft because it's worn.
