Kitchenaid professional stand mixer would rev up quickly and stop working after a few seconds.
I read several stories online explaining that this was a problem with a speed sensor. In order to change the part I removed the motor cover (required removing 3 or 4 screws) and simply unplugged the old sensor from the speed control board and plugged the new one in. Took very little time and minimal effort. Mixer now runs like it did when it was new and cost much less than replacing the entire appliance.
