    I have the same problem. I've only had my mixer for 5 months, but it shakes while using higher speeds and it seems as if a screw is loose on the head part. Then, on higher speed, the mixer moves around so much that the free hand I'm supposed to gain from using the stand mixer is instead used to hold the mixer on the cabinet. The shaking is especially bad when mixing chocolate chips, even on lower speeds.

Makes a grinding noise at higher speeds


If it is leaking you are going to have to go inside the gearbox to change the grease so whatever is wrong inside may become obvious when you take it apart. Remove accessory cap from the front and look for any dryish grindings inside there.

My governor assembly is broken and the speed controller does not work


You will need to buy a new governor from Kitchen Aid and possibly the speed control plate at the back. Often when the governor explodes it damages the contacts, they aren't expensive and it's easier than fluffing around trying to straighten it up.

Low speed noise


Check that the nuts under the back cover at the sides have a bit of nip on them. It could be the armature polling on the fields. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THOSE NUTS.

Kitchenaid stand mixer runs only on slow speed


The Kiichenaid mixer has a centrifugal speed governor. I suspect your is stuck. It will need to be disassembled, and inspected.

When I turn on my Kitchenaid mixer at any speed, it ramps up to high speed and then shuts down after maybe 30 seconds.


You need a reputable repairman. My gears were stripped after trying to mix a very thick dough. It would only work on high speed. After it was repaired.... I still use it, all the speeds work, and that has been 15 years ago. My mixer was at least 8 years old at the time of the "stripping".

My Kitchenaid mixer (k5ss lift bowl?) smells hot


I think you have a K45SS. It sounds like there is a problem with one of the gears, probably the worm gear. The worm gear is designed to be the first to fail if the mixer has struggled with a heavy dough or other difficult to mix substance. The best way to establish the cause will be to open the head up and check the gears for signs of damage.

I have a KitchenAid Pro 600 stand mixer, and it makes a loud whining noise which gets louder and ear piercing the faster the speed setting. I did not make this noise when I first got it, just a gentle...


It appears that you've got some internal transmission gear issues, and a situation similar to my wife's mixer, which we got new in Dec 2006. It could be as simple as the gears have become loose and are making different contact, hence the noise. The higher the speed, the louder, higher pitched sound you'll get. It may also be indicative of a potential gear failure (after all our increasing noise, the bevel gear broke and the mixer 'froze'). If your mixer is under warranty, contact Kitchenaid. If it's out of warranty, then take it apart and do a diagnostic exam of the gearing. Whatever you find you should be able to fix yourself. Be sure to have the Kitchenaid Part Manual (Part No. 8212278 Rev D) on hand if you attempt to disassemble yourself. It also lists all the parts so that you can determine, which parts, if any have failed. You'd think that the Kitchenaid name would warranty their mixers for a lifetime... So much for quality in America today!

575 watt 6qt stand mixer. start out on low speed


Hi. If your mixer is still under warranty, call Kitchenaid, they are usually very good at replacing mixers under warranty.

If you're out of warranty, you'll need to order a new speed control board. Use the following link to download the parts catalog for your mixer.

You can remove and replace this board yourself. Use the drawings to assist you with the project.

If this solution has assisted you, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45
