Question about KitchenAid K45SS Classic Stand Mixer

1 Answer

Kitchenaid not working. Before it "died" it wouldn't turn off

I have the classic Kitchenaid mixer, and have had it for 22 years. Recently when plugged in it would not turn off - I mean when I moved the switch to the "off" position, it wouldn't fully engage and would not turn off. This was an occasional thing that got to the point where the only way I could turn it off was by unplugging it. It seemed as if it was loaded with gunk and probably just needed a little cleaning, so I took the top off thinking I could just clean it up and it would work, but couldn't get it off altogether and when I put it back together it now won't run at all. I love my kitchenaid mixer! What should I do?

MY kitchen Aide mixer was running alittle rough /loud and now has stop completely. It is approx 24 years old and has never had any problems. It is hard to find a local repair [place. any suggestions


Two things you can do for a 24-year old machine:

1. Replace both motor brushes (Black large plastic Caps on each side
of the Moto Housing). Without these, the motor wouldn't even run.
2. Replace the Worm Gear (the cause of the Rough Loud noises)

Download a copy of the Repair Part List from Kitchenaid.com for
your model KSM90.

Also don't forget to tighten all the screws inside the mixers and use
fresh Kitchenaid Grade Food Grease for all the gears.

I just got a KitchenAid INC Classic model K45SS-won't turn off


Yes it sounds like it should be easy to fix. You will need to establish what is preventing the speed control mechanism from moving as it should. It sounds mechanical. Try removing the back cover and checking what moves (or doesn't) when the speed lever is moved.

I have a Kitchenaid Professional 5 Plus Mixer beaters won't turn


It sounds like it has been overloaded and the worm gear has been stripped. You will need to take the head apart to confirm this.

MOTOR SPINS ON MY CLASSIC STAND MIXER BUT GEARS DON'T ENGAGE


Hi all. There is damage to the transmission caused by overloading the mixer with bread or cookie dough, or by dropping a spoon or measuring cup into the mixer while it was working.

Go to mendingshed.com and download their free kitchenaid repair manual. This manual has all you, or a repair person will need to repair your model's mixer. Mending Shed also sells needed parts.

Kitchenaid pro stand mixer will not turn on I has been sitting for 3 months without being used. It is a 475 watt bowl lift 6 qt mixer. about 3 years old.


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.

Motor is running but the paddle won't move.


If you bought this mixer less then 1 year ago, call KitchenAid at 800-541-6390. They have a "hassle-free replacement" warranty. They should ship you another mixer. I bought one recently and it died after 3 days of use. I called and they are sending me a new one. However, it is not comforting that these mixers fail so quickly. KithenAid use to be made a product to last many years. I assume the quality has declined. Good luck!

KitchenAid 250 Watts; Classic: Leaking Oil


Found this,may be helpful.
Why do I see oil leaking from the beater shaft of my stand mixer?
Some KitchenAid® stand mixers that are not used very often or have been tipped may experience slight oil leakage from the shaft or hub attachment. To avoid the oil leakage, KitchenAid suggests that you run the mixer weekly for short periods of time. Generally, the mixer may lose approximately X cup of oil before repair is necessary. The oil used is FDA approved and is not harmful to consume, should any get into the food that you are preparing.
