Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly,

This is caused by either the speed control switch, the motor control plate or the motor. At the moment I really think it is either the speed control switch or associated wiring. This service manual is not and exact match for the RRK150 but the internal motor control parts are in the the same locations and the troubleshooting procedures are the same:

And the bigger model service manual with nice to know info:

Motor and motor control tests start on page 14 of the first link.

Also make note of the spring for the speed control in figure 50 page 18.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I assume you mean the pivot pin on which the top half of the mixer pivots to remove the bowl is sticking out of the side of the stand. Turn the mixer upside down and look up inside the stand which is hollow. You will see a screw. Tap the pin back into position and then tighten the screw.

Now to fix the drooping, and I assume you mean the beaters are hitting the bottom of the bowl, tip the mixer back and look into the hinge area. You will see a rather large screw. Turn it ccw a turn and check the beater to see if it is still hitting the bottom of the bowl. Repeat the procedure until you have 1/4 inch clearance or so from the bottom of the beater to the bowl.

It sounds like your problem will be in the back of the mixer then. Take the back cover off and have a look inside. Usually an electrical smell is also accompanied by sparks when the mixer is turning and often blackening of the area where the sparks are occurring. As the turning motor makes physical contact with the control plate I would investigate the area at the back of the motor. It may be that a new control plate is required.

you have to take the pin out from right above where you put the beaters on, and then you can tap the circle part off, and get into the inside...

Yes and isn't that the dumbest design for something like that. 3 screws when older models had 4 and no locating pegs where older models had 2. Great progress Kitchen Aid.

Make sure that the carbon brushes are free moving in the holders under the black caps, one on each side. Note that the brushes are "keyed" so that they will only fit and work one way. There is a blocker at the bottom of the brush holder that is to be lined up with the corner of the carbon brush that's been shaved off. Use a torch and remember to unplug the power before you start. Next thing to look at are the wires and switch contacts underneath the back cover.

Check that you have put the carbon brushes in correctly, they are "keyed" on one corner so will only work one way. Look in the hole with a torch to see the blocking corner in the bottom.

That sounds like you have broken a shear pin. These pins are through a spindle and shear off if too much load is put on the drive train. There is enough grip to turn the beater under no load, but the spindle or gear spins under load. look for a small silver pin through one of the drive cogs.

Without knowing which model mixer you have I cannot be specific as there are 5qt models with very different motors. Parts are available and the mixer can be fixed. Doing it yourself makes it much more affordable.

Service Manuals covering the two types can be found at:

4.5/5 quart:

The adjustment procedure is the same and there are springs on the two adjustment bolts. Thereafter, things are very different on the K45.
No speed or torque can be caused by:
1. Bad brushes, or most likely
2. A bad resistor. There are three wires on the resistor. It should read 190 ohms (or there about) across the red and white wires and 95 ohms (or there about) across the black wire and either of the other two.
3. A bad field coil (stator).
4. A bad armature.

A replacement resistor, field core, and armature are extremely difficult to find.

The Service Manual for the K45 and K5A can be found in the files section of WACEM, you just have to sign up to the site:

Look for "K5-A, K45 Original Service Manual"
