Question about Food Mixers
Is there a secret to putting brushes in mixer.
Yes there is a secret, the brushes are keyed and you need to line up the cut off corner with the blocker deep inside the brush holder, use a torch.

It could be very easy. It maybe you have a the brush in the
wrong way round or they have simply run out. They are on the sides under the black plastic caps. Although they will fit in the hole any one of 4 ways
round, there is a key on one corner which means it will only go in one
direction. Use a torch to look into the hole before you put it back in.
They shoud look like this : brush

Hi GOTWEIMS. Yes there is only one way to reinstall your
brushes and that is so they both seat correctly on the
armature's commutator or you won’t get any ‘juice’
to the motor. See the illustration below:
If you've turned a brush 90 degrees too much, it won’t seat properly and you’ll get no power to the motor.
It would also be helpful to have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website at: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> then enter the visitor type “Consumer” and the 6 character model number, in your case use KSM90P, in the Model Number box. Select one the files listed for your model that appears under Parts List (16): KSM90PSWH0.pdf (354.08 KB) and save that file to your PC (check to see it this matches your mixer model).
Turn to pages 6 & 7, titled “Motor And Control Parts”, which provides an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer’s electrical components, along with all the parts. Locate Illus No 32, Brush holder that includes #18, 20, 21, 22, 23, and 31 which is the brush holder and brush & Spring assembly respectively. This illustration along with my initial reply regarding the orientation of the brushes should allow you to reinstall your brushes with confidence. Good luck, I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

I found a solution at kitchenaid.com. It says the bowl locks in the same direction as the rotating mixer moves, so slap the bowl with your hand a few times in the opposite direction, and then take vegetable oil and using a cotton swab line the groove of the bowl. Let it soak a bit, and then slap the bowl again and push it hard counterclockwise.

SOURCE: the locking pin on the
I had the same issue. I just finished tearing mine apart only to find that the lock just wasn't engaging with a slot in the base of the mixer. Try lifting up the head of the mixer to expose the height adjust screw in the hinge between the base and the head. By tightening mine down a couple of turns, the lock can engage the slot again and the lock works. You may have to do a little tweaking to find the right balance between height adjustment and latch functionality, but at least you won't have to tear your mixer apart like I did!

jrichards - I hate it when that happens! It seems that power is not getting to the armature from the brushes so I would suspect that one or both of the brushes is (are) not seated properly. Did you remove the brushes to replace them or were you just inspecting them? I'd suggest removing them again and making sure the contacts are facing in the right direction to contact the armature. The concave contact face should be resting completely on the armature. If you've turned it 90 degrees too much, it wont' seat properly. I hope this helps... Howard, Burke, VA
