If your mixer over heats and will not turn back on, you may need to replace the speed control, as well as if the switch, which is actually mounted on the control board, is malfunctioning, you may need to replace the speed control. You will also need to replace the board if your mixer is only running on high speed and shuts off on its own the ribbon wire/mixer sensor has malfuntioned and now only comes with the speed control board. If you need the little knob attached to the speed control lever, the only way to replace it will be to replace the whole speed control.
