What's wrong with it?


Switches have more than one pole. Pole to the lights work ... as does the bulb.
Either the poles to the motor or the motor windings are bad. I'd leave that to a repair shop.

Power switch turns on by itself


Bring the mixer to a place that services these appliances. They will have to replace the switch. This is common on appliances.

Bosch universal mixer 800W. How do I change a 110 volt to a 220 volt? Is it possible?


Bosch is not very good about putting manuals or other documentation online for older products, so I'll have to give you generic advice.

Some electric motors have optional voltage connections. If your motor has this feature, there will be a box or removable plate on the motor with 110 Volt and 220 Volt connections inside. You would need to replace the line cord with a 220 Volt cord having the correct plug for the location you plan to use the mixer, and connect the motor "hot" wire to the 220 V connection in the motor junction box instead of the 110 V connection (the neutral wire goes to the same neutral).

If there is no such option available on the motor, you would also have to replace the motor with a 220 Volt version. Check the labeling on the speed control (inside the mixer) to be sure it is rated for 240 VAC, and check the power label by the power cord. If the label gives a single range of input voltages spanning both 110 VAC and 220 VAC (e.g., "Input 97 V- 265 V") then you only need to change the plug. Unless the electrical parts are all rated for 240 VAC or higher, conversion is not safe.

Some products (especially desktop computers) have a recessed switch on the back that lets you select either 115 VAC or 230 VAC input power. If you have this on the mixer, all you have to do is use a small tool to push it to the other position.

An alternative is to get a 230 VAC - 115 VAC transformer or inverter rated for at least 800 Volt-Amps and wire it with a 230 Volt plug on the primary side and a 115 Volt socket on the secondary side; then you can just plug in your unmodified mixer to this. If you cannot find a box like this, you can buy a "control transformer" from an industrial equipment supplier and put it in a suitable metal box. I recommend including a power switch and a 4 Amp dual-element fuse or breaker on the primary side circuit; you don't want somebody burning up the transformer with a 1200 Watt microwave oven or griddle.

Is there an exploded assembly diagram I can reference


Hi LONGLEY632. It sounds like you’re in the need of your mixer’s parts list. It provides ‘reasonable’ exploded views of the various components of your mixer. Enough so that you can disassemble, identify parts and reassemble your mixer.
You can download a PDF version from the KA website at: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> then enter the visitor type “Consumer” and the 6 character model number, in your case use KSM90P, in the Model Number box. Select one the files listed for your model that appears under Parts List (16): KSM90PSWH0.pdf (354.08 KB) and save that file to your PC. Check to verify this matches your mixer model.
Good luck! I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

Doesnt always switch gears & clicking noise


Hi LEEMOSHER. You don’t indicate your specific KA mixer model, which limits possible solutions options, but I’ll give it the old college try!
When you say ‘switch gears’ I assume what you really are referring to is changing the speed setting. There is only one set of gears, but 10 speed settings, which make the beater turn faster. From your description of the symptoms, I suspect your mixer’s speed control board is having issues and should probably be replaced. Since I don’t know you model number, I can only provide you general instructions.
The inspection and troubleshooting of the inside of your mixer is a DITY capability, particularly if your mixer is out of warranty. Just be sure to have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website at: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number and select a file listed under Parts List. Some models will have multiple files. Download one and check to ensure it matches your mixer model. If it doesn’t match, continue to look at other manuals until you find the correct manual that does match.
Depending on your model, locate the Governor Assembly and Control Plate Assembly on the pages titled: Motor Control Parts, or Control Assembly on pages titled: Case, Gearing and Planetary Unit. The illustrations provide an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer’s components, along with all the parts.
First inspect around the controller assembly to ensure all the wire connections are OK. It's possible a connection has come loose. Unfortunately the whole controller assembly is fabricated on a little PC board which was not meant to be 'home fixed', and my 'expertise' ends there. A local small appliance repair shop should be able to determine if the controller assembly is functioning properly or not, or you can just order replacement parts without the testing.
As far as parts go, here are four potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com. Prices for the same part can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
Without a clearer description of your clicking noise; i.e., when it occurs, where is the sound coming from, I’m at a loss to explain. However while your mixer is apart would be an ideal opportunity to check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the gears, etc., and you might discover something out of place that is causing the clicking. It can be messy but quite gratifying to diagnose and repair your mixer yourself.
Here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer.
Between these three websites and their excellent pictures and descriptions and your Parts List manual, you should now be able to completely disassemble and reassemble your mixer.
If you feel troubleshooting and repairing is beyond your capability, then I would seek out a local small appliance repair shop in your area. KA Customer Care can give you names of local KA authorized repair shops in your area, but you can also do an online search to supplement what KA may provide you. Call to explain your circumstances and find out their hourly rate and get an estimate of what they think it would cost to repair your mixer. Also, always obtain three or more estimates – do some comparison shopping.
Good luck and have fun. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

Cannot control speed of mixer. always runs on high. model#kp26m1xpm


I suspect your switch problem has to do with the speed control assembly inside your mixer’s head, and yes you can order and replace it.
The inspection and troubleshooting of the inside of your mixer is a DITY capability, particularly if your mixer is out of warranty. Just be sure to have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home. Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case: KP26M1, and select one of the first two files listed under Parts List (47) (The first file, KP26M1XAZ4.pdf (304.18 KB), is for a -4 series model and the second file, KP26M1XAZ5.pdf (724.41 KB) is for a -5 series with slightly different insides, so make sure you have the correct Parts List manual.)
For a series -4 mixer, turn to pgs. 2 & 3, titled Case, Gearing And Planetary Unit that shows an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the parts. Locate Illus. No. 8, Control Assembly. This is where I suspect your problem lies. (For a series -5 mixer, turn to Pgs 4 & 5, and locate Illus. No. 18, which is the speed control assembly).
First inspect around the controller assembly to ensure that all the wire connections are OK. It's possible a connection has come loose. Unfortunately the whole controller assembly is fabricated on a little PC board filled with resistors, capacitors and other electronic parts, which was not meant to be 'home fixed'. My 'expertise' ends at being able to recognize a resistor from a capacitor, but I don't get much deeper than that. A local small appliance repair shop should be able to determine if the controller assembly is functioning properly or not.
As far as parts go, here are four potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com. Prices for the same part can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
Once apart you can check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the gears, etc. It can be messy but quite gratifying to diagnose and repair your mixer yourself.

The speed switch on our KitchenAid KSM90 won't shut off


Hi NORMR123, it sounds like your Switch Lever has loosened up and you just need to get to the attaching screw to tighten everything up. (I trust you reinstalled the motor brushes correctly so your mixer will run. Many folks attempt repairs by removing the brushes thinking it will provide access to the inside, then reinstall them incorrectly and wonder why their mixer doesn’t work.)
Be sure you have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website at: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> then enter the visitor type “Consumer” and the 6 character model number, in your case use KSM90P, in the Model Number box. Select one the files listed for your model that appears under Parts List (16): KSM90PSWH0.pdf (354.08 KB) and save that file to your PC (check to see if this matches your mixer model).
Although not providing step by step instructions, the Parts List manual provides an exploded view of the various component assemblies allowing you to see how the mixer all fits together. It is helpful for the disassembly, troubleshooting, and reassembly of your mixer.
Turn to pages 6 & 7, titled “Motor And Control Parts”, and locate Ill. Nos. 1, 2, 3, & 4. #1 is your Pivot Screw, which may have loosened over time. #3 is your Switch Lever and stud. Check the detent is present or rubbed down. If that’s the case, you may want to replace it.
As far as parts go, here are five potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com (for grease). Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do some comparison shopping.
Finally, here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer.
Between these three websites and their excellent pictures and descriptions and your Parts List manual, you should now be able to completely disassemble, inspect/adjust/replace your Switch Lever, and reassemble your mixer. Good luck, I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA
