Question about Food Mixers

1 Answer

We have a 5KPM50 315W Heavy Duty Stand Mixer. We still have 10 diff speed settings but the lowest setting now seems to run much faster. I have been told that it should be doing 60rpm on setting 1 but ours is doing approx 80rpm. It's about 3 yrs old and has been working fine until now.

    Is there any way to adjust the speed?

  • neznosh Sep 08, 2010

    Just a litte update, after ginko's comment I did a little more checking around. I found by winding in the top 2 screws on the control plate assembly I was able to reduce the speed back to 60rpm. Thanks ginko!

Hi.
If you are sure that the mixer is going too fast,
If the mixer has a speed control circuit,a then the on-board circuit may be defective.
If problem is only on a single speed, it may also be the speed selector.

Mixer works fine with speeds up to 6, but changing to 8-10, speed stays the same.


Sometimes can be caused by running too fast on the lower speeds. Should be 13 to 15 revolutions in 15 seconds on speed 1 then a slight increase only on speed 2.

K5SSWW Stand mixer started slowing down while grinding shrimp


I'm not quite sure about this answer but it occurs to me that it could be the governor. It sits at the back end of the armature and as the speed control is slid to faster speeds the governor moves away from its rest position pressing against the control plate. If the governor's pivots were to be binding, even slightly, it would explain the symptoms you are describing. A service manual can be found at:

The kitchenaid k5ss runs at high speed at every setting of the speed control. How is this adjusted?


This is a bad rheostat switch. You will need to visit a repair center to have this fixed or get the part you need.

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?
