SOURCE: Power On Problem
if you remove the top you will find a tiny fuse wrapped in a black band on the left side from the back. It connects two white wires which power the top-side motor brush. Most likely this needs to be replaced. You can check by bypassing it with roach clips or a copper wire. Unplug the machine first and be careful!

How comfortable are you with electrical parts? With the mixer UNPLUGGED and the switch ON measure resistance between the (flat) plug pins. If it's infinite (no meter movement) which is to be expected, there is an open circuit. The switch could be open or the wire to the switch could be disconnected (improbable) or the motor could be burned out and open (not very probable).
Maybe you could take the switch to a shop and have it tested.
This is not really a solution, just step 1.

It sounds like your mixer likes to take a beating, ive never dropped one and for good reason, they weigh quite a bit. first check to see if all the rubber legs on the bottom are still there. if they are the only possible solution to fix it after being bent or warped is to either re-shape the part using a tool strong enough to do the job, or to replace the parts needed. the hinge pin part number is 16910. is the base is bent the part number is 240151-1. If the lower portion of the mixer itself is bent or warped this is a serious problem and will require you to dissassemble the entire unit. part number for the lower gearcase is 240350-4 Please not that all the parts list are white in colour. hope this helps.

This is common problem among kitchenaid mixers. If you are hearing no motor sound what so ever, The likely cause is the carbon brushes are worn or gone completely, and will need to replaced, they are located at the left and right sides of the unit and only fit ONE way. part number for both brushes is W10260958 and comes one in a package. These are a wearable part and when gone will not create an electrical field for the motor to run. If however these are visually OK, the next probable cause of this will be the motor control board, this can cause a great deal of electrical burning smell when it goes. part number for the board is W10119326. The board can be replaced but does require some know how of the unit.Hope this helps

KAY – You don’t mention how long you’ve
had your mixer or how intensely you use it, which would be helpful in assessing
your question. Our first KA mixer we got
in May 1989, seemed ‘whisper’ quiet compared to the replacement 6 qt Pro mixer our
children got SWMBO for Christmas in 2006.
The new mixer was so noisy that my wife called Kitchenaid to
complain. The wonderful KA ‘Helpers’ explained
that KA had changed to making all metal gears in their mixer transmissions as opposed
to having one plastic gear (intended to fail instead of burning the motor
out). That change from plastic to metal
is then main reason your KA mixer seems to be much louder. You should be able to judge if your noise
level has increased or stays the same during normal use. Since you stated that you don’t notice any
overheating of the mixer I would say that the noise level is appropriate and wouldn’t
be overly concerned at this point. That
being said, if you hear a change in the noise level – usually louder, it could
be indicative of mechanical issues in the transmission, which is what finally
happened our mixer. One of the gear
teeth broke and the agitator froze up.
But that is another story…
I hope this helps. Good luck! Howard – Burke, VA
