Question about DeLonghi DSM7 Stand Mixer

1 Answer

Delonghi DSM7 Stand Mixer won't start after overheating. Is there a reset button?

My Delonghi DSM7 Stand mixer overheated while mixing a very large batch of bread dough -I usually don't run it more than five minutes at a time but this was several minutes longer than that, on low speed. It started smelling like it was getting hot, so I turned it off. I didn't need to use it until several days later, and now it won't start at all. Is there a reset button somewhere on this particular machine? I would so love to keep using it- it is 7 years old and I have used it weekly for years to bake bread. (Usually about 6 cups flour on average.) This is the first time it has had that overheated smell.

Take it in to an appliance repair shop for a proper diagnosis and quote but it is probably not worth repairing ( armature and brushes )

Kitchenaid 525 stopped working while mixing cookie dough


Let it completely cool and then start again. It overheated because your speed was set too low for the heaviness of the dough. I have burned up three kitchenaid stand mixers so far making bread. go up one setting at least; if it is straining, go up another.

Hobart A-200 mixer gets hot and weak. Motor housing gets too hot to keep your hand on it. Service tech told me the motors usually don't go out. What other problem could it be?


I'd say you're most likely overloading the mixer. This mixer, and others similar in size, are frequently overloaded by people making pizza dough. If you are making dough, keep in mind the A-200's capacity is 9 lb. of 40% A.R. pizza dough, mixed for 5 minutes maximum. If you need to mix longer, the batch must be cut down even smaller, but I don't even know if you're mixing dough.

Try running the mixer unloaded (i.e. nothing in the bowl) for ten minutes or more and see if it gets hot. If it still gets hot, the motor's start circuit (varies depending upon age of the A-200; Hobart used numerous motors in the A-200 over the years, incorporating different starting circuits) most likely has problems. If it doesn't get hot when operating unloaded, then you're probably overheating the mixer by overloading it.

Ibought a hobart n 50 mixer took it oversaes used a 700 watt step down transformer to work it but after a few minutes it over heats is there a certain trans former to be used for it thank you


Assuming the mixer is overheating (and not the transformer), first check (with a multimeter) the voltage being supplied to the mixer from the transformer and ensure it is near 120V. Next, do you know the powerline frequency in the country you're in? The mixer (assuming it came from US) was designed for 60Hz US power. Many other countries use 50Hz, which could cause overheating if the mixer is used heavily. When 60Hz equipment is used on 50Hz power, it normally must be "derated" meaning it must be "underworked" as compared to its original capabilities.

Be sure to test the voltage going to the mixer, from the transformer, not only when the mixer is off, but be certain to test it in use, mixing whatever it is you are mixing -bottom line is to be sure the transformer continues to output 120V under load, with the mixer loading the transformer.

If all is OK with the power going to the mixer, then the problem is either in the mixer or the problem is how it is being used. What are you mixing with it - are you overworking the mixer? Does the mixer always overheat or only with particularly demanding jobs (cut down batch size in this case). What gear are you mixing in? If overheating in second gear, try mixing the same batch in first gear. If you have or can find a user's manual, it probably gives reccommended batch sizes for various typical products you might mix, be sure to follow these recommendations and "derate" for 50Hz if necessary.

It's possible the motor is weak from a long life spent working hard. A weak motor will draw excessive current and overheat. Where is the mixer hottest? The front at the gearbox/transmission or the rear where the motor is located? Maybe the transmission is lacking lubracation and needs a grease change. There a many possibilities for your mixer to overheat, and I hope this helps.

Mixer shuts down midway through mixing dough on low speed.Is ther a thermal overload next to contactor that may be overheating


A thermal overload is an option on the D300 and is self resetting. Assuming your machine is being operated at it's full rated voltage, you might have to cut down on the amount of dough you are mixing. If I recall correctly, the relay and overload is located in the base or behind the speed selector plate.

Mixing blades detach while being used


type delonghi in the search bar. Pick a site and yell at them. Kidding, tell them your problem and they should work with you. Get a phone number and call them, get the salesmans name and a time frame you can expect repacements.

Used the bread kneading hook, after 10 minutes, smoking


The mixer motor has probably overheated, as proper use and care was not being followed with the stand mixer.

Bread doughs are recommended to be mixed on speed 2 only and never for longer than 7 minutes. With the resistance of a bread dough that is provided against the beater, mixing for over 7 minutes may overheat mixer and cause smoking.

Please consult your use and care guide to refresh your memory about how to properly use your mixer for making bread doughs.

Pastry Chef said mixer will not start.


Depending on what you were mixing for 1/2 hour, you could have overheated & burned out the motor.

NO POWER! -- DeLonghi Stand Mixer 7 qt


There should be a overload breaker on the bottom of the motor, tilt it back and look for a little red (probably) button.  other than that, there shouldn't be anything else... if it doesn't  work, it might be defective... Don't give up hope though, those mixers, (used to be Rival, and made by Kenwood in europe) are *SOO* much better than Kitchenaid, it's not even funny *Grin* and good luck.
