Question about KitchenAid KP26M1X Stand Mixer
I recently received a KA Model 620 Pro Mixer from my mother. The 0-10 speed selection only works at the highest speed regardless of the speed selection. KA gave my mom a new mixer when she called to report this problem. KA states this is a common problem with the model. Okay, I was told the issue is a defective speed control board/selector knob. Since the machine was free to me, I opened the mixer to examine the speed control circuit board & wires. There doesn't seem to be any damage. After some effort, I've located a new "speed control" and intend to install the new board/selector knob. I guess my major question is, Am I headed in the right direction or is this mixer a lost cause? The nearest repair facility is over 300 miles away & Kitchen Aid seems less than enthusiastic about dealing with the mixer as I think they will discontinue the 620 model. Thanks!
Guys, I'm not sure if this will solve your problem. I have a Kitchenaid 575 watt professional 6 and I was having a similar problem. I fixed mine by making sure that Hall effect sensor was completed seated on the control board. I think mine loosened from the use and vibrations. Once I reseated the sensors it worked like new. I'm not sure if your model has a Hall effect sensor, but I would start there. One final thing. If your model does have a hall sensor, make sure it securely connected to the control board. Also, make sure the sensor is properly oriented on the board. My control board has three small prongs which the sensor attaches to. The sensor can attach facing up or facing down. If not sure, try it both directions. It took me a little trial and error to discover the correct orientation but my mixer works like new now.

You might have someone repair it for you; here is a place that charges a flat fee of $69.95 and thats including the return shipping. Check 'em out:http://www.marbeck.com/repair_mixer_kitchenaid.html The speed controller board sounds like the right direction but it hard to know if that is the issue until you install a new part. This is a known issue as far as I have heard around the internet. You might give KA a call and see if they can help; all they can say is no. I have heard they revised the part to fix the problem; my brother had a couple of boards replaced on his pro model and now it seems fine. Good luck!
