I had your same issue with the speeds. I think you need to adjust the speed through the speed control panel.
Open the back spherical cover on the Kitchenaid KSM90, the area with one screw on the top. You should see the speed control panel, a black and gold square connected to wires. There should be three large silver screws - two on the top, left and right - and one on the bottom. If you turn the top two screws clock wise the machine slows down at lower speeds. When you adjust the bottom screw, the higher speeds are effected. This process is called "tuning" and you can find an online video how-to through sites like Youtube.
As for the squeaking, you maybe replace some of the grease inside of the machine. Food grade gear lube would do if you are up for the challenge, but kitchenaid also sells a grease for their stand mixers for a pricey $20. It isn't hard to put in new grease and clean out the old but requires a lot of disassembly.

All speeds work but all too fast


the mixing speed was attained by the use of a potentiometer ( variable resistor ) that would have controlled the power into the board or from the board to the motor
it would be under the speed setting knob
maybe the resistor in use is not the right one and is not reducing the voltage sufficiently to do the job

Makes Noise in all speed settings


From what you describe, it sound like the mixer has seen better days. It may be possible to take it apart and service it, but I think you are better off replaceing it with a new one.

Hi . Chevron FM ALC EP-2 grease is what you need for the lubricant. This has a Mineral Oil base, allowing for it to, at some time, drip into whatever it is that you mix without concern for your health. From what I can, tell this is the only thing that needs to be done. Clean out as much of the old grease as possible.

Goto www.mendingshed.com and download for free a Kitchenaid Service Manual that will cover your mixer.

MOTOR SPINS ON MY CLASSIC STAND MIXER BUT GEARS DON'T ENGAGE


Hi all. There is damage to the transmission caused by overloading the mixer with bread or cookie dough, or by dropping a spoon or measuring cup into the mixer while it was working.

Go to mendingshed.com and download their free kitchenaid repair manual. This manual has all you, or a repair person will need to repair your model's mixer. Mending Shed also sells needed parts.

Hi. Stop using your mixer. If your mixer is still covered by warranty, call Kitchenaid Customer Service, they are very good with warranty repairs.

If your mixer is out of warranty, remove the silver band that surrounds the top of mixer. Remove the top cover. At the front of the mixer, locate the transmission housing which is now exposed. Examine this housing carefully for cracks. If you find cracks anywhere in this housing, you have found the under-engineered plastic transmission housing. Kitchenaid's replacement housing is made of metal. Your plastic housing has no business being in a mixer that is marketed as being able to mix bread dough. It cannot!

If you're confident that you can make the repairs yourself, go to the Kitchenaid website and download the parts drawings. Remove the Trans. housing, remove the worm gear shaft assembly which is driven by the motor.. Remove and save as much grease as necessary to thoroughly inspect the worm gear. Inspect the worm shaft bearings. Look for cracks, or missing pieces on the bearings. Look for crunched cogs on all gears. Be prepared to wait at least a month for your parts to arrive after you order them. The replacement grease should be Shell Darina 2, or Chevron FM ALC EP 2.

If you're not confident about repairing this yourself, call Kitchenaid and determine the nearest "approved" repair shop.

You may be able to pressure Kitchenaid to pay for the damaged parts in your mixer. They are still installing these plastic Trans. housing on new mixers. Insist on a metal cover when replacing. Apparently, Kitchenaid feels no shame in their manufacturing process, and will not issue a recall notice for these housings. They are substandard at best.
