If it has a bowl guard on it then the problem could be either the bowl height switch or the side switch on the contactor. If it does not have a bowl guard then the side switch on the contactor is the problem. If it has a bowl guard, make sure the bowl lift is operating the bowl height switch. The bowl must be all the way up to operate the bowl height switch.

Kitchenaid artisan the stir speed goes high around 27 cycles each 10 seconds.. Changed the control plate and the phase board and tried to adjust the screws and it stays the same! Help me please I don't...

Sorry, that answer was for someone else. The only things I've seen to cause high speed running are out of adjustment screws at the top or the bottom of your control plate or the phase board. Start point for the top screws is 8 full turns in from being not even in the hole (both sides) and on speed 1 the bottom screw does not even touch that step in the flat rod that activates the switch and moves the control plate.

Hobart a200 first gear not working

slacken the big acorn nut away from the bottom of the planetary and then tighten the lock nut to the acorn nut. When adjusted and secured, the planetary should have a little vertical play, maybe 1/16".
That will stop the second gear driving from friction from being too tight.

Funky speed

Could also be a broken wire to the control plate. It's not very often the plate itself. Just looking in there while operating the lever may reveal something. The shaft at the bottom that moves the plate closes a set of points to start the mixer, maybe the points are loose and not closing when they should. Just be careful operating it with the cover off and alive.

I have a hobart mixer D340, 40 qts. and the start botton switch is not working. Can you teach me how to change it? If you have a video that I can see to solve this problem . Thanks, I be waiting for your...

This should be a fairly simple job, the only thing that may cause some people trouble would be if the switch has solder and not push on connections. This is an NO switch (normally open) Part # 00-087711-183-4 with two wires, one each to either connection.
1.Unplugged or turn the breaker off for the mixer, pull the cap off the start button.
2. Remove one of the lower screws from the electrical control panel plate and use it to get two screws 1 inch or longer that are the same size and thread.
2. Remove the other bottom screw from the control plate and screw the 2 longer screws into the bottom holes no more than one quarter of an inch. The screws will give you room to work and support the control panel plate while you are replacing the switch. Remove the 2 top screws that hold the electrical control plate to the machine.
2.Remove the 2 screws from the front of the control plate that secure the start button in place.
3. Install the new switch, make the electrical connections, replace the 4 screws in the control plate, and push the cap back on the start button, Plug in the machine or turn the breaker back on and you're done.
PS: you should avoid touching the other components on the electrical control panel.

250 watts k45ss classic stand mixer doesn't run

My first guess would be the speed control plate. It has three screws in an upside down triangular shape. The two screws on top control and adjust speeds 1 thru 6, and often times just one screw being out a 16th of a turn will shut the mixer off completely. I would venture that when you were removing the two stud bolts you moved the adjustment screws on the speed control plate. Remember that even a slight movement can shut down your mixer, take a phillips screwdriver and turn the top left screw one quarter turn while the machine is on, it can start on you so don't be shocked and jump with a loaded screwdriver in your hand at the back of an electrical device, stay calm, if no start then try the left screw a quarter turn, if it does not start go to a half turn on each screw, if still no start turn thr screws back to the start place and try the bottom screw a quarter turn left and right, if you do not start by now, then something is wrong in another place, go back to the brushes and take them out and check how you put them in, these are the two most common problems with a no start mixer. If this does not fix your problem or get the mixer to start please come back here with more info. If you motor raced in the first place then I would suspect the phase control board, but when it came back to normal speed it leades me away from the phase board. When the phse control board goes out the mixer only works at high speed. So please let us know so that we can help further.

I have a Kitchen Aid k45ss that was dropped a few years ago. I works fine but the speed switch doesn't want to stay in the off position so we have to unplug it. I opened the unit and the switch...

When you said "the speed switch doesn't want to stay in the off position", you meant to
say "the speed switch in the OFF position does not turn OFF the mixer", or "the speed
switch physically cannot be moved to the OFF position"?

In any case, try to adjust the mixer speeds.
Obtain a copy of the K45SS Repair Part List from
Remove the screw holding the End Cover and locate the three screws from the Control Plate.
All three (2 top left and right, and 1 bottom) must be adjusted.

1. Loosen the lock nuts enough & Turn the 2 top screws clockwise until they cannot be turned
anymore. Leave the bottom screw alone for now.
2. Use a dab of white paint or paper whiteout to mark the positions of the Phillips screws.
3. Plug in your mixer and Set the speed selector to "Stir".
4. Turn each top screw One full turn couterclockwise (alternating between Left and Right)
Keep making one full turn at the time (for both left and right) until the motor starts running.
5. Put your hand near the Agitator shaft and allow it to brush your finger slightly. Use your
watch or clock and start counting the number of times the shaft touches your finger in
60 seconds. The correct count should be 60 RPM (Rounds Per Minute). If it is less
or more than 60, give each screw 1/4 turn counterclockwise or clockwise and start counting
again. Now tighten both lock nuts.
6. Set the speed selector to "6" and turn the bottom screw either clockwise or counterclockwise
to achieve a speed of 180 RPM.

For your reference, the planetary RPM's for the 5-qt. tilt-head Artisan Stand Mixer are as follows:
Stir speed - 60
Speed 2 - 95
Speed 4 - 135
Speed 6 - 180
Speed 8 - 225
Speed 10 - 280

Speed Control Unit test?

Take off the back cover. there should be 2 screws on top of a piece of metal, 1 on bottom. Start on turn. it should go about 1x a second. Turn the top scrws. Then go to 6. it should be 3x a second. Use the bottom screw to adjust that. When turn and 6 are corrrect, all other sppeeds are right. There might be something else in between the back cover and the 3 screw panel.
