Mixer speed fluctuates; is too fast on low gear

I'm trying to fix a Kitchenaid K45SS. The slow gear runs way too fast, and when on the slower gear the speed fluctuates. Is it likely to be a problem with the switchboard, or the governor?

    I also have the same problem but my model is a KA45. I dissasembled it and I notice that a part (made of something like ceramic with a wire on each side) is burnt. I believe it is a resistor or a potentiometer and I wonder where I can get it. I will appreciate any help. Samo

Pull the back off and there will be two screws at the top of the Speed Control Plate and a 3rd screw at the bottom. Tighten the top two screws down. bakerboy49203@yahoo.com. Let me know if it works.

K45 kitchenaid mixer quits working under load? When beating egg whites it works great but try to cream butter and the beater stops.


It will be a broken or missing pin through a gear or the planetary or something wrong with the fuse gear. It should be easy enough to find but you will need to split the gearbox cases to check.

KitchenAid mixer speed surges high and low uncontrolably


You can get the high speed back if you want to play with those three screws. there is a timing scheme for your mixer and it is set and adjusted by manipulating those 3 screws. The bottom center screw is for speeds 6 8 and 10. The best choice is to replace this switch, about $10 bucks on ebay.

On low it makes a really loud grinding noise the higher you turn up the speed the slower it becomes.


It sounds like the Worm Gear is going out. The faster the motor runs,
the more damages the Center Gear is grinding away the teeth of the
Worm Gear. Things start to slow down, and eventually they will come
to a halt. It's time to replace the Worm Gear. Also make sure to use
new fresh Kitchenaid Food Grade Grease with the new replacement.

I have a Hobart KitchenAid Mixer Model K45SS and it runs fast on low (Surges speeds up and down)what is causing this problem


Hello Mayfix,

The problem with your mixer is the speed control switch, this switch is located at the back of the unit. It is usually black and has all of the wires coming into it, the Item # 1394070 and cost $27.95 it can be located at RepairClinic.com he is a link
http://www.repairclinic.com/Kitchenaid-Switch-Parts?z=100&gclid=CKSD5NriuKcCFUVqKgodIE2b_g

You will have to adjust after you install you will adjust the two screws at the top of the switch while the machine is running inorder to make sure that you are getting all the speeds. Be careful as there is a possibility of electrical shock if you touch the wronge thing.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Speed is off, only have fast and faster


Likely, you have an open resistor pack which may or may not be repairable located near the rear of the motor housing. Hope this helps!

Grinding sounds and slower mixer speeds


It sounds like you may have a broken worm gear inside your mixer which is a common problem.It is a wearable part which transfers the power from the motor to the main drive. It may be chipped or damaged right now, and running it will cause more damage. Part number for the worm gear is W10112253. This does however require some know how to replace. Hope this helps

Thanks

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.
