Will not start on low speeds

My 32 year old KitchenAid Mixer Model K45SS (no WH at the end) will not start until I move the speed lever to at least 5 (that gets messy!). I can then move the lever back to the lower speeds and it will work fine.

That and done, your unit needs servicing. If doing the repairs yourself, open up the unit and do a visual inspection of the speed switch along with continuity and voltage testing using a multimeter. More than likely it will need replacing.
