    My Kitchenaid Epicurean Model KT2651XAC changes to different speeds on its own. Typically, it drops to a slower speed less than a minute after starting at a medium speed, and it may then return to the higher setting on its own. This problem doesn't happen when running on the highest settings, such as when making whipped cream or meringue, however. Can this be repaired? I would like a response from someone who has first-hand knowledge of dealing with issues and its resolution.

Good day!

That problem is usually happen when the motor is partially defect.Changes of speed on the motor is cause by shorter length of carbon brush inside of motor.

Replacing of carbon brush is not for D.I.Y...I suggest to buy a new motor to replaced that.

Thank you

It might be able to be repaired if you can fix the speed adjustment switch, or replace it. Some parts are made available to the public, and some aren't, but you can always try. Taking some appliances apart requires special tools, and that can be a severe deterrant. If you can get the unit apart enough to see if the switch is broken, or just worn, you might be able to fix it without replacing it. I've never taken one of these units apart, or I would supply more detail, but good luck, and hope this helps.

My handle on KitchenAid KT26S1X Epicurean Stand Mixer is jammed and won't lift or lower bowl. Can you advise?


I'm not familiar with that particular model but the common cause of that fault on the ones I do work on is a broken or cracked lift lever inside the stand. You need to remove the stand from the motor housing. 4 screws going up through the stand into the underside of the motor casing at the back. That will expose the lift lever mechanism for you to identify the problem.

Beater assembly stopped rotating, motor makes "whining" sound


in a word Yes! There are several videos on youtube that go through a full tear down replace gears and re-assembly process. You will also need a prats list for your model (you will need your full model number as the Epi series have had four or five modifications and you must have the right parts)
http://www.kitchenaid.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/OCManualsLiteratureSearchResultView?catalogId=10552&langId=-1&storeId=10202
You can figure some type of modification based on the number of parts list available to you when you go to the site above. the top list is for user manuals the bottom list is for parts lists.
You can repair this for about $60.00 in parts plus some patience and a couple rolls of paper towels, hope this helped

Mixer doesn't work on all speeds


First the K45SS does not have a hall effect sensor. the pro series the epicurean seines and the pro series 5 use them, The K45ss system uses a phase control board a speed control plate and a governor for speed control. the governor rarely goes out the phase control board is a likely culprit but the system would work only in high gear if it was bad. I agree with the guest above in that it sounds like the retaining nuts on the adjusting screws of the speed control board have worked themselves loose and the adjustment screws themselves have vibrated out of proper position.

High speed all the time


referring to:

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%208204525.pdf

It is either the hall effect sensor item #9 or item #8, the speed control circuit board. Both can be found on ebay, the sensor for around $5 and the board for around $30. Unfortunately there is no simple test for either part.

Take the machine apart and look at the board where the control know is mounted to see if there is anything obviously cracked or broken. If the mixer was ever dropped on its side this could happen!

Mixer quit working


Quite likely you overloaded the capacity of the motor and it simply overheated. The brushes inside the motor may be burned out/corroded. I suggest putting a light load on it and seeing how it performs. Often, when this kind of thing occurs, a bit of light duty use will get the motor back into good working order. But be careful to not over-tax the unit again. There are several different KitchenAid mixers on the market, some nothing more than ornamental, all the way up to commercial-grade.

Power On Problem


if you remove the top you will find a tiny fuse wrapped in a black band on the left side from the back. It connects two white wires which power the top-side motor brush. Most likely this needs to be replaced. You can check by bypassing it with roach clips or a copper wire. Unplug the machine first and be careful!
