I have a KitchenAid Mixer K45 that needs a new Speed Control…

Customer Question
I have a KitchenAid...

I have a KitchenAid Mixer K45 that needs a new Speed Control Plate. The one I have is older and the new ones a bit different, how can I get a replacement? If I can use the newer one, I'd need a wiring diagram on how to convert the older one to the new one?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your KitchenAid is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

1972

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Avocado Green Model K45

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

This control plate has three wires: Red, Yellow and Black. They are connected to like color wires by a wire nut. The new plates seem to have more wires. Also, this has a large capacitor and the newer ones seem to have a small circuit board. I just don't know if I get the newer one if it can be wired in properly. Or can I just get a new "Older" Speed control plate with the three wires?

Joel, I've reviewed that video and the Speed Control they show is not the same as my older one. I need a older one or a wiring diagram that shows how to convert my older wires to the new one?

Let me look. Three wires and capacitor. All connected with wire nuts
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I don't see any numbers. I'm going to assume you've never worked on this type of concerted newer speed plate
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Or converted wiring to Newer speed plate

I'm not spending more money to get answers I already knew
Appliance Technician: Joel Swenson,

No I have never converted and old one like that over to the new one I will opt out to see if another expert can help you.

My original txt to the first person was quite clear on this. I can get a speed plate, but need to understand if it can even be wired in properly. If no one has done this specific conversion, then I don't need to talk with them. Waste of time and money ill spent
