Question about KitchenAid KSM150PS Artisan Series Stand Mixer
My kitchenaid K45 mixer only works on high speed. What should I check to correct this so it will work with the slower speeds.

Pull the back off and there will be two screws at the top of the Speed Control Plate and a 3rd screw at the bottom. Tighten the top two screws down. firstname.lastname@example.org. Let me know if it works.

It sounds like you may have a broken worm gear inside your mixer which is a common problem.It is a wearable part which transfers the power from the motor to the main drive. It may be chipped or damaged right now, and running it will cause more damage. Part number for the worm gear is W10112253. This does however require some know how to replace. Hope this helps

If your mixer does not run slow, it is often caused by the small circuit board in the unit that controls the speed. The easiest way to correct this issue is to check if it is malfunctioning. Here are additional step that you may use to solve the problem.
1. Turn off the unit.
2. With the back plate off, try to adjust the large black plate on the back of the speed control and see if you can regulate the speed better.
3. The plate has 2 screws on the top and one or two on the bottom, depending on the model about 3" square.
4. You can adjust the speeds if you turn the two screws on the top.
5. With the mixer off, start by turning them both the same amount of turns in the same direction and see how it affects the speeds. Start with 1/2 turn.
6. Be sure to keep track of the turns so you can return to the original start point if you have to. This will effect both the low and high speeds at the same time.
7. If you are going in the wrong direction, return to your start point and turn the opposite direction.
If this does not solve the problem, the circuit board is already malfunctioning and needs to be replaced.
Hope it helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

I just fixed my 8 yo mixer! Would only work at highest speeds... first took it apart because it was making a terrible noise. Tthrough this site I figured out how to take it apart and replace the grease. Gears were in good shape, but a small nut fell out of the back while I was working on it. Finished putting it back together, found the spot where the nut belonged- holding the metal housing of the motor to the head. I turned it on and all I could get were the two highest speeds so I took the back panel off again and played with the bottom screw- it seems to adjust something on the wire that controls the speed. So take a philips screwdriver and adjust that screw and see if you get all the speeds back.
