    I need to know how to open the appliance to fix the pin that holds the knob in place, but I'm not sure how to reach it. It actually sank inside the appliance.

Usually most knobs have a "push fit" arrangement , sometimes there will be a screw that needs tightening

Kitchenaid 4KSM90ER lever latch has lost its knob. Have new part WP9709280 and need installation instruction.

Honestly the easiest way by far is to put the metal shaft of the new one into a vice and with 2 screwdrivers carefully lever it off and then with a soft hammer tap the knob onto the original shaft. If you want to do it by replacing the whole arm and knob you will have to split the gear cases.

I have a brand new kitchenaid artisan mixer that i have only used once. I cannot move the speed control lever at all.

Take it back, no point voiding your warranty pulling it apart. You do know you need to put a bit of downwards pressure on that knob when moving it forward and back ??

Looking for the black plastic knob on the speed control for my Kitchenaid Professional 6 (KP2671XOB) stand mixer

Fashion another knob out of something similar looking and bond it onto the shaft with epoxy resin. Think of another appliance that may have a black knob on it....a toaster knob maybe. A knob off an old fashioned heater control in a car.

Knob for kitchaid stand mixer

I am assuming you mean the little black knob on the speed control has broken off. I will post the solution for that problem.
The speed control lever on KitchenAid mixers has a little black knob on the end (in some cases this may be white or gray). The knob is pressed onto the lever, so if the knob breaks off your only option is to replace the whole lever.
KitchenAid has a kit that will include all you need to replace the speed control lever. It even comes with instructions. Here is a link to the speed control lever kit on our website:

The lever kit includes the speed control lever (with knob), speed link, spring, instructions and a gearbox gasket.

The instructions will only walk you through how to hook up the speed control lever, so if you also need a little guidance in taking the mixer apart, and reassembling it please use the KitchenAid service manual. The manual will walk you through all of the repairs you may need on your mixer, including how to take the mixer apart and put it back together. Here is a link to the service manual:

Remember, The Mending Shed is a Authorized KitchenAid service center, we can help you with any repair needs for your KitchenAid appliances, plus all of the parts we carry are genuine KitchenAid brand.

On my Kitchenaid Artisan mixer the 3" silver rod fell out the back. How do I slide back in?

I an sorry but the only Rod in the back of a K45SS is the pivot hinge pin that holds the motor head onto the base. if it fell out then the answer is simple. Turn the mixer upside down and wiggle the base while sliding the pin back in. Once the pin is back in place, there is a set screw in the middle of the shaft that you can see while you are replacing the pin, turn this back down with a flat head screwdriver untill it is firmly against the hinge pin. The culprit of the problem is this set screw. It came loose and allowed your hinge pin to vibrate out and then fall down or fall out as you said. once the set screw is back in place you will be fine. To avoid this problem in the future you might remove the screw entirely and put a drop of "Lock-Tight" on it that will help hold the setscrew in place for a very long time.

Trouble replacing part that has fallen out of the end of my KitchenAir mixer

Sounds like the governor has flown apart, you will need to take that black plate off the back, all the wires off it (take a photo first if you think you will need it) a spring at the bottom and 2 screws at the top. Once you get that off the broken governor will be exposed and you can lever it off with a couple of screwdrivers, don't lose the locating pin through the motor shaft.
Part required is
17830 Governor Assembly
Line up the notch in it with the pin you have in the motor shaft and bang it on with a soft hammer so that the notch engages the pin.
When fitting the back plate back on first engage the speed control lever into where it belongs to operate the switch then put each screw in 8 full turns to start off. I put each one in a couple of turns then the other one until each is 8 turns in. Put the spring back on, put the wires where they belong and fire it up on low speed. Move it up to high then back to speed 1. You want the planetary to turn 13 to 15 revolutions in 15 seconds. I let the planetary knob brush my hand as it rotates while watching the second hand on the clock. Turn the screws in to slow it down and out to speed it up, you should move each screw equally. Once slow speed is set lock up the nuts that stop those 2 screws from turning. Job done!

Speed Control Knob

It is most likely a stuck control assembly item #8part #9703609 in the following parts diagram:

the parts diagram shows where it is located and you should be able to figure out how to disassemble it from the diagram.

The adjustment screw fell off

There is no adjustment screw. That should be all the way up so that it will compress the spring and lock the lift lever un the up position. You will need to put the spring, washer and then the Nylock nut back on, I use a standard socket with some paper wadded in the bottom and over one side to hold the nut it it while I screw it back on.

Problem with the RPMs

These mixers have a spring inside the back cover to make the control plate follow the speed control knob. Sometimes it unhooks and you only get on, and 1 or 2 speeds.
