Hi Emily,

Thanks for using FixYa.

Sounds like you have a very simple loose capacitor or shorted capacitor problem. You can bring it to any electronic repair shop for a quick repair. Expect a 15-30 minute job for that.

I hope this helps. Thanks and good day.

At its lowest setting, our mixer spins at ever increasing speeds until it stops and then, will not work at any setting.


Your motor needs to be replaced. The speed setting should be able to be set from the start, and if it will not slow down or change speeds, the motor has been over-heated and will need to be replaced. The only quick fix for this is to bypass the speed setting, and change the brushes on the motor. If you do not know how to do this, ask a serviceman to change the brushes only. Brushes usually run about $30 to repair. Although, you will only have one speed.

The mixer motor starts and stops, it will not continue running on any speed. By playing with the speed selector you can get it running sometimes but you cannot keep it running if you change speeds.


Here is how your speed control works:

Speed Control
The speed control of the mixer is attained through the use of a governor assembly mounted at the rear of the control plate assembly.
The electrical circuit is made and broken by the action of the fly ball governor revolving against the control plate.
When the switch lever is moved to an ON position, the position of the control plate with respect to the governor is changed by the action of the switch lever.
Thus, when the control plate is set close to the governor, a relatively low speed of the motor causes the governor to make or break the mixer’s electrical circuit through the control plate.
When the control plate is set farther away, a greater motor speed is required before the governor starts breaking the circuit.
The action of the governor is such that the speed of the motor will remain constant for a given setting of the control plate within certain loads.
After certain loads have been exceeded, the speed of the motor will drop to meet the torque requirements of the given load.
Speed is controlled by the governor and the control plate in conjunction with the phase control.

TRIAC RMS VOLTAGE
BOTH CONTACTS OPEN - 40 VOLTS
ONE CONTACT OPEN - 80 VOLTS
BOTH CONTACTS CLOSED - FULL VOLTAGE
NOTE: The triac regulates the power the motor sees depending on control board contacts.
A device called a triac is a part of the phase control circuit.
This device determines the amount of power the motor sees dependent upon the condition of the control board contacts.
If both contacts are open, about 40 volts RMS is applied to the motor and about 80 volts is applied when either contact is closed and the other is open.
When both contacts are closed, the triac is full on; consequently, full power is applied to the motor. In this way, the speed is controlled.
If the mixer motor begins to run too fast for a
particular speed setting, one or both contacts open, which cuts back on the voltage the motor sees, thus slowing it up.
If the motor operation becomes too slow, one or both contacts will close, applying the needed voltage to the motor to sufficiently increase motor speed.
This is always accomplished through the triac.
The control plate contacts control the triac, and in turn, controls the amount of power supplied to the motor.

If your not good with tools / meters or tedious repairs do NOT attempt this yourself.

Mixer won't shut off


Sounds as though the switch has shorted? Or the speed controller has failed ON. You could try a replacement if one can be had?

My K45SS started making a VERY loud noise when in use, and the lowest and highest gears don't work. Machine is about 20 yrs old.


This sometimes happens when the two nuts holding the motor in place become loose. To check, open up the back and move the foam around the edge to see the two nuts. Tighten them if they are loose. If the low speed still does not work, the screw adjustment at the bottom of the control plate may need adjustment.

Speed reduction of Hobart A200 mixer


Hi Don. If your mixer is hurling honey, you must be very popular in the ant world...Sorry!

The Hobart electric motor on your mixer was designed and engineered to operate on 115-120 volt current and is the most dependable, and capable commercial mixer out there Is it possible for you to use a commercial Imerssion Blender for the first part of your mixing operation. Once your honey thickens a bit perhaps the a200 wouldn't hurl honey. Another consideration would be to either try a different beater or modify the one you have by removing surface area from the beater. If you remove metal, be sure to do it in a balanced fashion to avoid unwanted vibration in the beater. If you're not up to removing metal, take it to a machine shop and they'll do it for you. It probably won't take long, or cost much, and they have the expertise and the equipment to do it properly. If you found this solution helpful, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45.

MIXER WILL NOT RUN AFTER CLEAN/LUBE TEN YEAR SERVICE.


The speed control is a governor setup, it's purely on and off, as the weights on the motor shaft spin faster, they press against the contacts, and when they spin a fast enough speed, it turns off current to the motor, which makes it slow down, and current gets turned back on.  That way, you get a pretty consistent speed on a setting no matter whether it's lightly loaded or whipping something fairly heavy.  If you can turn the motor shaft by hand, then you don't have anything binding, but you might have gotten the speed control out of adjustment.  give it another go.
