Question about Kenwood Food Mixers
Speed control switch on Kenwood Titanium mixer only works on fast speed.
The switch on the titanium has a flimsy week point and is always breaking. This is a stupid economy by Kenwood when there is now so much good competition. Mine broke after only 6 months and Kenwood were less than helpful suggesting I took back to where I bought it - 500 miles away!! I wish I had bought a Kitchen Aid

I had the same problem. Had to strip the machine down to get to the motor. On the top is a moving plate with various capacitors etc mounted. On the front side there was a Capacitor (At least I think it was) with the wire broken.
I resoldered it and the machine now works fine.
I hope this helps

SOURCE: Speed switch gone beserk
I have a K5-A, bought it for my S.O., she makes Krispy Cream doughnuts with it. The speed controller on a K5 has "originally" 2 return springs. They rust / break fall out the lower vents in the white cup that covers the rear of the machine. You can remove the cap with the removal of the lone screw at the top rear of the machine. Just gently work off the cap after the screw is removed. MAKE SURE THE MACHINE IS UNPLUGGED FIRST!!! There is a funny metal flange thing that is mounted with two screws at the top on springs. This is esentialy the speed controle. It is actuated by a rod conected to the outside switch that runs up the bottom of the motor drive. You'll note the simple but effective off / on switch there. When the springs rot the funny flange thing does not return to its flat resting position and we have no low speeds. The springs attatch to the holes on eather side of the flange and stretch down to a post type mount below the speed mechanism. If you use a good light you can see and mount any small spring to these mounting points and the switch returns to rest and you have all speeds, a single light spring will work.................There, You, Go..........Reassemble.

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. email@example.com. Let me know if it works.
