Question: Kitchenaid Mixer Control Board
I ordered a new control board for my professional 6 mixer (9706648). According to the schematics, and Nate on the ereplacement help line, it is the right board, but it has some key differences:
My original board has two additional blade connectors near the rear screw (not ont the pcb), and one additional connection on the pcb. The additional pcb connection is called "unswitched" and is connected to one of the additional blades not on the pcb. The other connection off the pcb is a jumper to the "line" connection on the pcb.
Do I have the right replacement board? If so, what do I do with the other connections?

I believe I have solved my own problem. Since there was a resounding lack of replies to this thread, I took it upon myself to figure it out. So after a little probing with the ohm meter, I was able to determine that the line and unswitched connections were the same line. I removed the line jumper and connected the unswitched connection to line, taping off the extra connection. Works like a charm.
Question: Planetary Base Slips Down
I noticed the other day that I could spin the attachment connector freely in either direction. I knew it didn't do that before. Upon closer inspection, there was a gap between the mixer head and the planetary base and I could easily see the gears inside and I could even pull it open more if I pulled down on it. Isn't there something to keep the gear shaft from slipping down (a retainer clip or pin or something)? Any ideas?
I pushed it back up into place and was able to use it, but it doesen't seem right.
Thanks for your input!
Reply: Planetary Base Slips Down
Thank you for your question! The planetary is pressed onto a shaft that goes inside the mixer. The whole planetary should be replaced. On our YouTube channel you will find a video titled "How to Fix a KitchenAid Pro 600 Mixer". This video will show you how to do the repair as well as how to replace the other gears. Here is the link for the video:
Depending on what model your mixer is will determine what color planetary you will need.
