I took off the back cap of a 300 mixer. then pulled out the motor brushes. put it back together and now it wont run. What am i missing?


Hi, KIMAMABELL, While working on your mixer be sure 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> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case, KSM90P, and select one of the files listed under Parts List (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.
The brushes need to be installed so that they both seat correctly on the armature's commutator and it’s possible when you reinstalled them, one or both brushes were turned incorrectly.
The illustration below shows the correct orientation of the brushes and should allow you to reinstall them with confidence.

Here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer for your future referennce.
Between these three websites and their excellent pictures and descriptions and your Parts List manual, you should now be able to completely disassemble and reassemble your mixer.
Good luck! I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

How much does a motor cost for this mixer


Hi CAKE_LADY196, Happy New Year! So you want to replace your mixer’s electric motor? Good for you! However, before you start taking your mixer apart, be sure you 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> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case use KSM50P (Your K5SS mixer falls within this manual), and select the first file KSM50P.pdf (438.31 KB) listed under Parts List (4) and then check to verify 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 mixers electrical components, along with all the parts. Locate Illus. Nos. 41 and 8, Field Assembly, 115V (the stator) and Armature and Bearing, 115V. You will need these two components to totally replace your mixer’s electric motor, although it is possible, you only need the armature and bearing. Whether you replace both motor parts or just the armature, I would suggest replacing the brushes, too.
Costs will run between $71 ~$99 for repair parts, plus shipping & handling and any sales tax depending on the vendor you select.
Here are five potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com (for grease). You should search for ‘food grade grease’ online (although I’ve seen automotive bearing grease used too – your call). Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do some comparison shopping.
Once apart you can check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the gears, etc. It can be messy but quite gratifying to diagnose and repair your mixer yourself.
Finally, here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembly/reassembly of a KA Mixer. The mixers displayed in the links are different KA models, but the principles are the same.
Between these three websites and their excellent pictures and descriptions and your Parts List manual, you should now be able to completely disassemble and reassemble your mixer.
Good luck, I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

My KitchenAide ultra mixer was a gift a year ago.


Hi BOSILKA_PASK, I am sorry to hear about your Kitchenaid mixer. Sadly the warranty for KA mixers is only for one year, so unfortunately you are out of luck as far as the warranty goes. But that is still no reason to panic. Since you did not provide the model number, I can only provide you a ‘generic’ solution, but this should point you in the right direction to fixing your mixer.
The inspection and troubleshooting of your mixer can be done quite easily (OK, maybe with a little effort) by yourself if you are a DITY type person and feel adventurous; particularly now that your mixer is out of warranty. Just be sure to have the correct Part List manual around when you start to disassemble your mixer. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, and select one of the files listed under Parts List and then check to verify that it matches your mixer model.
To disassemble your mixer you will need the following tools: a regular & Phillips screwdrivers, snap-ring pliers, a small drift pin punch and a small hammer. By using the exploded views in the Part List manual, you should be able to disassemble, inspect, identify, replace and reassemble your mixer.
Are you getting any sound when you push the start knob, or is there just dead silence?
If the motor runs but the mixer (agitator shaft) won't turn, then you've had a mechanical failure somewhere in the transmission housing or planetary gear assembly of your mixer, and by your description “and suddenly there was a rumbling/grinding in the motor area...” this evidence would lead me to believe that’s what where the problem lies. Turn to the pages titled: “Gear Case And Planetary Unit”, and remove the top of the mixer. If you have a classic mixer, you’ll see the transmission gears all covered in grease, which you will need to removed. Newer, larger models have a transmission cover over the gears that would have to be removed. As you remove the grease check for debris that could be suspended in it. Once you’ve removed all the grease inspect the gears to see if one (or more) is stripped or has broken teeth. Any damaged or broken gears will need to be removed and replaced.
If you have dead silence, then the mixer has a power issue, which means a couple of things could be conspiring to make your mixer not run. It may be a bad controller assembly (the speed knob) or it could be the motor, but either way it's something you can check yourself
Unfortunately the controller assembly is on a little PC board filled with electronics that was not meant to be 'home fixed' and my electronics expertise ends at being able to recognize a resistor from a capacitor. A local small appliance repair shop should be able to determine if the controller assembly is functioning properly or not.
The next possibility would be with the motor itself, but electric motors are pretty simple mechanisms and generally don't fail.

It can be messy but quite gratifying to diagnose and repair your mixer yourself.
As far as parts go, here are five potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com. Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
Finally, here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer. The mixers displayed in the links may be different than your KA model, but the principles are the same.
Between these three websites and their excellent pictures and descriptions and your Parts List manual, you should now be able to completely disassemble and reassemble your mixer, should you decide to go that route.
If you feel this repair is beyond your capability, then I would seek out a local small appliance repair shop in your area. KA Customer Care can give you names of local KA authorized repair shops in your area, but you can also do an online search to supplement what KA may provide you. Call to explain your circumstances and find out their hourly rate and get an estimate of what they think it would cost to repair your mixer. Also, always obtain three or more estimates – do some comparison shopping.
Good Luck. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

Kitchen aid mixer model K45ss motor just quit. Voltage present on backboard but not on all contacts - maybe phase board problem????


Hi LCHESNEY, it sounds like you’ve got the mixer apart already to do your voltage checks. So my guess it that you’ve already determined that that (speed) Control Plate Assembly is not good and need to be replaced. Since you’ve already disassembled your mixer once I hope you have your mixer’s Parts List manual on hand, but if not, you can download a PDF version from the KA website: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case use K45SSW, and select the file listed under Parts List (1), K45SSWH0.pdf (341.41 KB). Check to ensure it 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. Find Illus. No. 25, Control Plate Assembly, Part No. 240904-2.
As far as parts go, here are four potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com. Prices for the same part can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
Here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer.
Between these three websites and their excellent pictures and descriptions and your Parts List manual, you should now be able replace your Control Plate Assembly.
Good luck and have fun. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

Motor made a grinding sound and stopped. Took out brushes to check. They aren't badly worn. Motor is cooled now and still won't start.


BGL0514 - Are you sure the grinding sound was coming from the motor, or was it more likely coming from the transmission? It appears that your mixer had a mechanical failure in the transmission box or planetary gear assembly of your mixer - one of the main gears has failed, hence the loss of power to the agitator.
The inspection and troubleshooting of the transmission is a DITY capability, particularly if your mixer is out of warranty. Just be sure to have the correct Part List manual around when you start to disassemble your mixer. If you're lacking one, you can download it from the KA website. Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, and then select Parts List file. You can check the page titled 'Case, Gearing & Planetary Unit, for the disassembly, troubleshooting, and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the parts. It can be messy but gratifying. Once apart you can check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the gears, etc. Here is a link to an excellent webpage for disassembling/fixing your KA Mixer: http://www.neilcrockett.com/mixer.htm
Finally, with respect to your brushes that you removed, 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 and you'll get no 'juice' to the electric motor, so it won't start. I hope this helps - Howard, Burke, VA

Regarding the Sunbeam Mixmaster (model 2346): How do I remove the front cover of the mixer so that I may reallign or replace the beater gears?


Pry the beater release button out with a screwdriver. There are two screws underneath it and one under the motor housing between the the beater holes. This will allow you to remove the chrome front cover, but not the motor and drive assembly. Getting to the part that contains the gears requires complete disassembly of the mixer. It is not designed for service, and requires patience and a variety of tools to disassemble.

It has a metal worm gear and plastic drive gears. If the beaters are out of alignment, then one or both of the plastic gears are stripped and the mixer is junk. Repair plus shipping costs equals the price of a new mixer. This is the weak point of these mixers and a fundamental flaw in an otherwise robust and sturdy design. It is definitly not the same mixer *********** bought 30 years ago.
