if you remove the top cover, you will find an overload group with a green and a red button on top, next to the contactor . One is test, the other is reset. On the side of the overload are two thumb wheels, one is auto/ manual, set this to auto, the other is -15%,0, +15%. If you are running very heavy batches and you want to push your motor harder, move it to +15, but it's not recommended. If it was set to manual, when it trips and cools down, it will not reset untill you press the reset button, in auto, once cool you an restart the mixer.

It is possible that the drive belt has broken. It is located under the housing on top of the mixer but you need to remove 2 screws under the housing then remove the 3 retaining screws on the drive mechanism. The top of the housing will then lift off and reveal the drive belt. Caution this is not a DIY job for non mechanically minded persons and as always make sure the equipment is disconnected from the power supply. If in doubt seek qualified assistance.
