KitchenAid 350 Watts KSM50PR Professional Series Stand Mixer stuck on

High speed.
This is a 10 speed unit but on low speed it really starts flying!
This setting used to do a slow stir but now it's sounds like it's going to take off.
I'm afraid to let it come up to full speed.
All other speed settings do the same.

I would recommend that you first check the Hall effect sensor which determines the 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 blender 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 tight.  Guess what?  My original sensor also made my mixer work!  There was nothing wrong with my original Hall effect sensor except the connection between the control board and sensor was not adequate--unfortunately I didn't check the connections before I decided to buy another one. My guess is that the connection between the control board and the sensor probably loosens or comes undone over time from use and vibrations. 
1.  Download the mixer parts and diagrams from the Kitchenaid website to see what the Hall effect sensor looks like. 2.  You'll need a phillips head screwdriver to open up the mixer. 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 connection between the control board and sensor is correct. it's hard to know which way the sensor should be connected because the control board has three prongs and the sensor can attach facing up or facing down. If, after you've made the connections, the mixer still doesn't work.  Disconnect the sensor and reconnect it with the prongs facing the opposite direction and try it.  I actually found the right orientation through trial and error.  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 less than 10-15 minutes to perform.  6.  Make sure you use common sense and unplug the mixer when making connections and such.

Can't get my beater off my KitchenAid 350 Watts mixer


The button does not retract, a bit of CRC may help combined with a lot of wriggling and grunting. Flour gets in there over time and builds up and makes the paddle tight. Rasp it out a bit in the hole, try not to remove metal, you just want to remove the buildup. If you had a bottle brush that fitted and cleaned it in there each time it will never happen again. Look how long it has taken so far.

I have just purchased an ice cream freezer for my mixer. It is an older model and does not have a "stir speed" delineated. What is the equivalent of stir speed on the older models? -- 1 or 2?


On models with the "STIR" speed, the RPM (Rounds Per Minute) is 60.
Set your mixer speed to "1" or "2" and do the following:
Put your hand near the Agitator shaft and allow it to brush your finger slightly. Use your
watch or clock and start counting the number of times the shaft touches your finger in
60 seconds. In your case, the correct STIR speed is 60.

The dough hook is stuck in the beater shaft of kitchenaid mixer


It sounds like it got overloaded when you last mixed dough. It will only come off the way it went on. If it has been bent on, it may need a bit of gentle encouragement.

Kitchenaid ksm50pob no stir speed all other speeds seem ok


I don't know if it will work for you but move the speed lever from front to back a few times as fast as you can. This will polish the contacts. This is like the old fashioned TV tuners. People used to turn them slowly and then complain when they needed serviced every 6 months. Spinning the tuner knob kept the tuners working flawlessly for years.

Speed control


You need to either clean the contacts on the control board, or replace it. Parts are available online or use Google to look up a repair shop.
