Kitchenaid mixer speed

Our brand new kitchen aid mixer model no: KB26G1XPT has problem with its speed. when turned on (stir) it rotates slow and then pick up speed and then to a full stop. if you try to switch it to other speed it does not run unless you turn it off and switch it on again.
same speed is attained even if you switch to other speed settings (starts slow and picks up speed then stop).
do i need to replace the speed controller?

I would recommend that you first check the Hall Effect sensor which determines the mixer’s 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 mixer 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 snug and tight. Guess what?  My original sensor also made my mixer work!  There was nothing wrong with the original Hall Effect sensor except that the connection between the control board and sensor was not tight--unfortunately I didn't check the connection before I decided to buy another sensor. My guess is that the connection between the control board and the sensor probably loosens or comes undone over time from use and vibrations. To fix your problem:
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 gear case cover.
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 is correct.  It's difficult to tell which way the sensor should be connected because the control board has three prongs and the sensor can attach facing up or down. After you've made the connection, run the mixer. If it still doesn't work, disconnect the sensor, reconnect it with the prongs facing the opposite direction and try it again.  I actually found the right sensor orientation through a little trial and error.  But by going through this trial and error, I also had my Eureka moment when I realized that the original sensor probably would also work if it were reconnected with correct orientation.  
5.  This whole process probably takes about 10-15 minutes to perform.
6.  Finally, use your common sense and make sure to unplug the mixer before checking, connecting or disconnecting anything.

    great link, I have an aged KA that just threw a cam or something --thanks!

    I have had two Kitchenaid Classics and both lost the speed control. It was either off or full speed. I tried to repair the speed controller, but to no avail. Must buy and install new parts. Definitely a weak link in an otherwise good product. In this day of solid state speed controllers you'd think they'd improve on this Achilles Heel.

Always at high speed. Loose connection at black connector of Hall Effect sensor. I shoved a piece of the red tube of a WD-40 spray can into the space and fixed it.

Thank you joyofbaking for this solution. A loose connection on the Hall Effect Sensor was the problem. Even though it looked secure, I unplugged it and plugged it back in and it works like a charm.

Same problem. Always keep it unplugged went in today and it is now doing this.

Anyone get this fixed yet?

Kitchenaid KSM150 stir and slow speeds are running too fast why is this?I just got this machine, its brand new from ebay (america)


It sounds like the speed control plate is not correctly adjusted. If you take the back cover off of the mixer (it is held in place with a screw at the top) and try adjusting the screws on the back plate you may be able to get the mixer to slow down.

You will notice two screws at the top of the speed control plate:
4893809-mz0mnwb1nd52ertzwibinpxu-3-0.jpg If you turn the top screws one quarter turn, both equally then test the mixer it should adjust the speed. Please make sure not to over tighten or loosen these screws as it can damage the speed control plate! You should not have to mess with any wires attached to the speed control plate or the bottom screw.

If you need more information please see the service manual here: http://ep.yimg.com/ty/cdn/mendingshed/kitchenaidservicemanual.pdf
It will specifically go over how to trouble shoot the mixer and how to adjust the speed control plate.

Please let me know if you have any questions

Mixer revs, then shuts off, will not reset


your kitchen aid has a little device inside called the hall effect sensor. These often come dislodged or just stop functioning. If you are mechanically inclined you can replace this yourself.

Stir/first level goes fullspeed and then turns off automatically


It shouldn't do that, and I really doubt there's anything you can do about it other than to have the defective part replaced. It sounds to me as though there's a problem with the control mechanism. If the machine is still under warranty, contact Kitchenaid to see about getting it repaired or replaced. If not, get the name of a local shop that repairs Kitchenaid mixers -- from your description of the problem, the mixer is nearly unless in its current state.

I need instructions to use my new kitchen aid attachment


Hi. Basically all you really need to know is to start the machine at a slow speed, begin shredding, increase speed to a point where the machine is not labouring. Next time you use that attachment, set it for that speed. Different attachments and the foods they process load different stresses on the mixer. Always use a speed that is one step above/below the labouring sounds. Kitchenaid doesn't see fit to publish these instructions online as they do their other manuals. Another missed opportunity by Kitchenaid. You might want to check out the kitchenaid forum. one of these people just might have it in digital form. Good luck! ricardok45

Kitchenaid 250 watts k4ss mixer


The repair manual says that the mixer can make this grinding sound at slow speed, like stir or 2. This is normal, especially until it warms up. This is the sound of the gears turning at slow speed.
