Hi i can see your problem there, if you can remove to top cover of your mixer its better cuz' you can see the slider on your speed arm spray it with WD40 rust remover, or any brand that you have wait up to 30 min' to 1 hr and try move slide arm if not try again puting some rust remover, and if it moves its better and then clean it with contact cleaner and if you don't have try lacquer thinner use brush. and dry it up to 2 to 3 hrs to be sure.


peace!

Why wont my classic kitchenaid mixer switch off

Good Morning,

There is a spring inside your mixer attached to the speed control switch and speed control arm, the spring can sometimes get caught on the slide bar that is just below it inside the mixer. The other reason is that the speed control switch plate in the rear of the machine (that the spring attaches to) vibrates the three speed adjustment screws out or in and the spring will pull the speed switch (control arm that you use to control mixing speed when using the mixer) back to the stir position after you try to turn the mixer off.

If it is a spring problem you will have to do a full tear down to get at the spring and either free it or replace it. If it is a problem with the adjustment screws on the speed plate, that can be handled at the rear of the machine and is twice as easy to get at but sometimes much more frustrating to adjust. There are "YouTube" videos on the internet that will walk you through the process of adjusting your speed control plate just Google "adjusting speed on kitchenaid mixer" I hope this helps. please let us know if it does and if you have other questions just post them here and we will "FixYa"

How do I fix a speed control switch that doesn't stay in the off position?

My daughter had this problem with her mixer. The problem is that the screw that holds the speed lever has come loose. To get at the screw you have to dismantle the head. It took me about 1/2 hour to take it apart and put it back together. It is not that hard, except that you have to drive a pin out of the beater shaft. Works great now.

Control lever slips out of off position. If you slide it to off it slips back to position 1 or 2.

Unfortunately that's a big labour job and almost zero parts job. The case needs to be split so you can get inside it, the screw that the lever pivots on is either loose or the lever arm is bent, it will be one or the other.

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.

Kitchenaid stand mixer will not stay in the off position.

There is a spring, item #4, which hooks on to the bottom of the control plate, item # 25, and pulls it back when you move the lever to off. Remove the rear cover and see if that spring is still connected to the control plate and to the lever arm, Item # 3. Here is the diagram:
