When you open it, there is are contact points and a piece that has to touch to change the speed. It may just be slightly bent or out of place. Some food may have gotten in there.

To Remove Flat Beater, Wire Whip or Dough Hook
1. Turn speed control to OFF.
2. Unplug stand mixer or disconnect power.
3. Tilt motor head back.
4. Press beater upward as far as possible and turn left.
5. Pull beater from beater shaft.
If the beaters are stored on the shaft of the mixer when not in use, food traces can harden and make mixer attachments difficult to remove. Should this occur, wrap a hot, damp towel around the shaft to heat and expand the area. A small amount of cooking oil sprayed around the shaft may also help. After the beater has been removed, thoroughly clean the beater shaft area with a small brush to remove any food residue.

I would recommend that you first check the Hall effect sensor which determines the speed. I had this exact problem (but mine occurred with a 600 professional model) and I actually went out and bought another Hall sensor for about $13. I replaced the original sensor and made sure that the connection between the sensor and control board was nice and snug. My blender worked as good as new! But I was curious to know if my original sensor was defective so I put it back in mixer and again made sure all of the connections were tight. Guess what? My original sensor also made my mixer work! There was nothing wrong with my original Hall effect sensor except the connection between the control board and sensor was not adequate--unfortunately I didn't check the connections before I decided to buy another one. My guess is that the connection between the control board and the sensor probably loosens or comes undone over time from use and vibrations.
1. Download the mixer parts and diagrams from the Kitchenaid website to see what the Hall effect sensor looks like. 2. You'll need a phillips head screwdriver to open up the mixer. 3. Make sure that the connection between the control board and sensor is absolutely tight and snug. 4. Also, make sure that the orientation of the sensor connection between the control board and sensor is correct. it's hard to know which way the sensor should be connected because the control board has three prongs and the sensor can attach facing up or facing down. If, after you've made the connections, the mixer still doesn't work. Disconnect the sensor and reconnect it with the prongs facing the opposite direction and try it. I actually found the right orientation through trial and error. By going through this trial and error, I also had my Eureka moment when I realized that the original sensor probably would also work it were reconnected with correct orientation. 5. This whole process probably takes less than 10-15 minutes to perform.

Make sure the bowl is off to the side. I wouldn't get rid of a mixer just because the bowl doest't, if it's a good powerful mixer. There aren't many replacement parts available except directly from sunbeam. You need to get a replacement motor for the bowl turntable.

Referring to the diagram on:
Remove the screw, item 22, to remove the trim band around the mixer. This will reveal 4 screws which hold the top cover on. Remove the screws and lift the top off. Find all the screws which hold the gearhead in place and tighten them all. If you want to make the fix a permanent one put some thread-loc compound on each screw and tighten it.
