Kitchenaid mixer - turns once and turns off, worm gear is fine
Usually, the beater not turning or not turning under a load is due to a damaged gear, but there are other components in them to check.
There is the worm gear, pinion gear, bevel pinion gear, internal ring gear and the attachment hub gear. The worm follower gear is usually the most common and is usually obviously stripped. However, it could be other gears damaged or worn.
The other part to check would be the motor bearings and the motor bearing plate. These require a bit more taking apart to get to but could be causing the issue.
You can find the full-service manual for your mixer online at kitchenaidexperts.com
Hope this helps.

It covers several models including yours.
1. Check/Adjust the Flat Beater to Bowl Clearance:
Turn screw (A) SLIGHTLY counter clockwise (left) to raise the flat
beater or clockwise (right) to lower the flat beater
2. Check the Beater Shaft (Agitator Shaft) making sure the Retaining ring
is flushed with the surface of the Planetary Assembly
Constant Pulling and Removal of the beaters can cause the Agitator shaft to move
3. If the above two still don't solve your problem, follow the service manual
directions to disassemble the Planetary Assembly and check for loose screws
My mixer will not lock
I understand that you are having a problem with your head locking in the down position. This is a common problem when the set screw that holds the latch in place is missing. On the right side of the base up next to where the lock is you will notice a whole that has threads make sure that the set screw is there if not you will need to order a new one. Here is a link to sears parts direct where you can purchase
a new set screw
they cost $4.62.
Thank you for choosing FixYa
Daughter brought her ksm150ps home,
Sorry to hear you are having trouble with your mixer!
I would start by checking your motor brushes, as this is really easy to check. They may have been placed in the wrong way or worn down too much.
I have added a link below for a help video on checking and replacing your motor brushes:
I hope this helps you :)
Kitchenaid stand mixer won't stay in off position
The speed control lever is either bent or the screw it pivots on has come loose. The only way to solve the problem properly is to take off the back cover, remove the white and the black wires from the speed control plate, remove it from the pedestal (1 screw up inside the pedestal to remove hinge pin), take the chrome drip ring off, remove the planetary and remove the 9 screws holding the 2 case halves together. That will allow you access to the lever and you will be able to tighten the screw or remove and bend the lever to give it more tension on the bumps in the housing that hold it in off or speed positions. This list is pretty much in order of how you do it.

Black stuff wiping off beaters of kitchenaid mixer
If it's just the wire beater attachment, then it's possible it's oxidation from the metal/aluminum. Did you put it in the dishwasher? The manual says not to put the wire beater in the dishwasher. Hope that helps.
Kitchenaid Stand Mixer won't start at "Stir"
I had the same problem. Part #25, the "control plate assembly" It has a set of points on the lower, inside. These points turn the motor on. You can watch it as you go from off to stir. If at that setting the motor doesn't start, be very careful and bend the lower point contact up just a bit. The 2 points should make contact earlier, and turn the motor on.
Beater hits side of bowl
What part number did you order for the beater and what is the model number for the mixer? Also is the mixer brand new, or did you get it used and it just started happening?
I bought a ice cream
Hi ROBYN, Happy New Year! First a couple of clarification questions: A) Was your ice-cream maker a Kitchenaid (KA) Ice Cream maker, too, and B) was your mixer purchased after 1990? If you purchased a KA Ice Cream maker and your mixer is less than 20 years old, according to KA, the Ice cream maker should fit all mixer produced after 1990.
If you have a different brand (not KA) of ice cream maker, then I’m afraid you just won’t just be able to replace the drive assembly, but you will also need the correct dasher (the scraper inside the freeze bowl), as such you probably would be better off purchasing a KA Ice Cream Maker, which would be compatible with your mixer. Of course if your mixer is over 20 years old, then even if you have a KA Ice Cream maker, it may not fit correctly anyway, which leaves you in a conundrum. Should you purchase a new KA mixer for your KA Ice Cream maker or do you purchase a new KA Ice Cream Maker to go with your current KA mixer produced after 1990?
You can download the KA Ice Cream Maker Use & Care Manual from the KA website at: http://www.kitchenaid.com/assets/pdfs/product/ZUSECARE/KICA0WH_Use%20and%20Care_EN.pdf
I wish I could offer you a better solution to use your new ice cream maker with your current mixer, but unfortunately I am unable to do so.I hope this was helpful, even if it doesn’t provide you the answer you were looking for. Good Luck, Howard, Burke, VA. If this solution was helpful though, please rate it. hslincoln
Kitchen aid stand mixer has sparks inside when on
Where do you see the visible sparking?? There are two places in the mixer where this could / should happen. One is at the brushes where they meet the commutator on the armature of the motor. I don't think you can see that place during operation unless you have the rear cover off and know just how and where to look down the tube of the motor head. The second place is at the rear of the machine at the copper contacts on the speed control switch. You can see in the machine during operation at this location. You should not be overly concerned about this...unless...you are seeing constant arcing, then you need a new speed control switch as the resistance (amount of metal to conduct the electric current) between the contacts is worn down. This will cause a constant arc and will eventually wear down and then freeze closed and ...Walla! the mixer will not work any more and it can short out the rest of the electrical in the mixer. So; if you are seeing short intermittent sparks at the rear of the machine , well no worries, if it is constant then replace the speed control switch if it is anywhere else it is an electrical short and that can be very dangerous indeed. Tell us where you are seeing the sparks...and we can FixYa.
KitchenAid Speeds are offset
Ideally you need to fix what's bent and that normally would involve splitting the cases to get at and repair or change the speed control lever. If you don't want to do that then removing the back cover and altering the adjustments and maybe bending the switch contacts may make it operate at both ends of the speed control.
