    Thank you. I'd gotten that far and none of the bits have anything obviously wrong.

    sounds and feels like the motor "wants" to start but nothing happens.
    I need a manual to pull the machine apart

I had the same problem. Had to strip the machine down to get to the motor. On the top is a moving plate with various capacitors etc mounted. On the front side there was a Capacitor (At least I think it was) with the wire broken.
I resoldered it and the machine now works fine.

I hope this helps

Why is mixing speed switch not working correctly?


How old is your appliance?

If you are just getting one speed at any speed control. Its likely that the speed control mechanism ( probably an electric one has been damaged due to ailing parts). Likely component which may fail over time are electrolyte capacitors. Take a look at the circuitry inside the food mixer.

You may need to change some parts to get back the control.

KitchenAid k5a arcing on control board


it was stuck on high speed because the phase control board went out, your fix may not be absolutely 100% and it is now causing an uneven distribution of the electric charge in the mixer and it is arching. My recommendation is to replace the speed control board (black and copper plate) and the phase control board. i bet it fixes the problem as these are the two parts that regulate the electricity in the mixer. Hope that helps. Buy the way if you don't fix the problem and continue to use the mixer you may have to replace the motor eventually as you can cause the armature and stator to short or burn out.

Speed control swich on Kenwood Titanium mixer


The switch on the titanium has a flimsy week point and is always breaking. This is a stupid economy by Kenwood when there is now so much good competition. Mine broke after only 6 months and Kenwood were less than helpful suggesting I took back to where I bought it - 500 miles away!! I wish I had bought a Kitchen Aid

The mincer specified for the KM800 (from it's owners manual) is the

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.
