The kitchen aid mixer speed # 10 turns off when using it no matter the time used. How do I fix?

The cases need to be split and the lever needs to be fixed so that it grips the notches that hold it in place. It may be a bent lever or a loose pivot screw.

When itry to make bread dough in the mixer, the bowl locking mechanism doesnt work properly and the bowl moves and top of mixer jumps around how can i fix this

You need to make sure that the hinge pin is tight, turn machine completely upside down and tighten the slotted screw up inside the pedestal. If that doesn't fix it you will need to check that the locking lever is properly engaging in the slot. You may need to "SLIGHTLY" file the slot in the pedestal that the lever engages into. If you go mad with the file you could wreck the slot.

Why will my kitchenaid stand mixer only go fast?

You will need to look under the back cover and make sure that the lever is moving the speed control plate out and in at the bottom. Out = fast. If that is moving freely and there are no broken pieces inside that back cover (springs, brass governor bits) then replacing the small pcb at the top with the 4 wires coming out of it should solve the problem.

Kitchenaid stand mixer K45SS willnot tilt the head I do not understand How to fix this problem

Put a towel on the bench and put it upside down on the towel. Wriggle lever and pedestal about and it may free up. The lever may be disengaged from the locking mechanism. The machine will need to come apart to fix any mechanism lever problems.

KitchenAid Speeds are offset

Ideally you need to fix what's bent and that normally would involve splitting the cases to get at and repair or change the speed control lever. If you don't want to do that then removing the back cover and altering the adjustments and maybe bending the switch contacts may make it operate at both ends of the speed control.

Model K5SS -- The speed control lever will not stay in the slowest position - STIR - but will pop over to the next position - 2. Can I adjust anything to fix this problem?

Open up the Motor Housing and inspect the Switch Lever with Stud.
The Lower Gearcase has many depressions which allow the stud to
snap into it when the Speed Selection lever is moved. If the Stud
is worn out then there isn't much you can do but replacing it.
3184193 is the Switch Lever And Stud part number for your model.
