Magic Mill Food Mixers - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

Hi REINO66, I suspect you (speed) Control Plate Assembly has gone bad and needs to be replaced.
The good news is that this can be fixed quite easily (OK, maybe with a little effort) by yourself if you are a DITY type person, feel adventurous, and your mixer is not under warranty. However, before you start to disassemble your mixer, be sure you have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website:
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case use K45SSW, and select the file listed under Parts List (1), K45SSWH0.pdf (341.41 KB). Check to ensure it matches your mixer model.
Turn to pages 6 & 7, titled: Motor And Control Parts, which provides an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer’s electrical components, along with all the parts. Find Illus. No. 25, Control Plate Assembly, Part No. 240904-2, which is the part that needs to be replaced.
As far as parts go, here are four potential vendors in no particular order:;;; Prices for the same part can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
Here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer.
Between these three websites and their excellent pictures and descriptions and your Parts List manual, you should now be able replace your Control Plate Assembly.
Good luck and have fun. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

What is the make and model of your mixer?

If there is a possibility that some food could have dripped onto the pin, it could be creating problems with the mechanism. If you are able to remove the bowl, try the tipping the arm into a bowl of hot water in hopes of loosening up any food debris in the mechanism. Power cord disconnected of course. :-)
It is possible that there is a spring inside the mechanism that has failed. If this is the case, it will need to be disassembled for repair.

I look forward to hearing back from you regarding the make and model of your unit. :-)
