Question about KitchenAid KP26M1X Stand Mixer

1 Answer

It's dead!! Hi there, I have recently aquired a brand new Kitchen Aid that was discarded because it worked for my friend one time and then quit...dead..not a sound or movement. She got disgusted and put it in her basement for a few years. So now it has been bequeathed to me and I am figuring I may as well take it apart and have a look- see. Nothing obvious, looks clean and brand spanking new. Any ideas where I should start?

SOURCE: KITCHEN AID MIXER WILL NOT WORK

If you have had the brushes out (under the big screws on each side) verify the cut corner of the brushes are oriented properly. Look inside the hole with a flash light and you will see where the cut corner needs to be.

SOURCE: Kitchen aid mixer, voltage issue

Why not just buy a power converter for the mixer and other electronics on Amazon. They are cheap and can be adjusted for
110 - 240 and can be used anywhere in the world.

SOURCE: kitchen aid heavy duty 325 watts mixer won't turn on

On my K5SS mixer, the brushes are aligned with the sliced off corner at 11 o'clock on the left and at 5 o'clock on the right. So the real key is in the suggestion from Mazlynn detailing the use of a flashlight to determine where the little tabs are located inside the brush holders.

Is this a Kitchen Aid? Is it possible to buy this circuit board from somewhere?


This is a kitchen aid. BUT!!!! it is an international model that was sold in countries with 220 volts. Look underneath the mixer for a white tag it should have a model number and a serial number, if you can get us those numbers then we can help with the parts. Hope this helps.

How do I change the fuse?


Unfortunately this model is not sold here so my advice can only be general advice. Over voltage will normally blow a PCB before the fuse has a chance to blow so you should be investigating that part first before looking for a fuse it may not have. It is only going to be fixed by an appliance repair technician, preferably one authorised by Kitchen Aid. As a rule I would not expect the PCB to be repairable after double over voltage. It is probably going to need for it to be replaced. Now is probably a good time to enquire with your Kitchen Aid repairman to see if conversion to your UK voltage is economic or possible as money is going to have to be spent anyway.

A200, 1st gear had no torque(I could stop by hand). Found & replaced key on low speed gear. It sheared it again. It is just shearing it on the flat gear part, not the bevel gear part. I'm thinking it...


I have had my Kitchen Aid since 2003 and never had this problem. If this has happened to you more than once, I would call Kitchen Aid and explain the issue to them. My sister had an Issue with her new Kitchen Aid and they had her bring it for service and they replaced it with a NEW mixer. Kitchen Aid is very good with brand accountability.

Kitchen Aid flat beater leaves carbon on my hands and food


Are you using the white coated beaters or the burnished beaters. If they are the white coated beaters then the finish has come off and the zinc/underneath is rubbing off. Are you using the aluminum looking beaters in heavy acidic applications? if the mixer is new go to kitchaid customer support they will re-place. if your mixer is out of warranty then you need to replace it. about 15.00 t0 24.00 USD. if the problem persists then you may be leaking metal shavings from the planetary head, (I don't think it is happening but it is a possibility) if it is ground metal shavings you have a serious problem. I can't say anymore without knowing more. What application are you getting this result. is it all the time. is it after the mixer sits along time. need more info.

Kitchen aid 110v 450watt, I want to convert to 220v


Hi guys,

The only available Kitchen Aid stand mixers on the European markets are the Kitchen Aid Classic and the Kitchen Aid Artisan.

The best way is to contact a Kitchen Aid service center / repair facility in your area.
Here is the European website of Kitchen Aid: http://www.kitchenaid.eu/eu_EU/ka/ka_europe.htm

If you bought a different Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer (like the Professional series) you probably won't find the required parts to convert it to a European model. The only way would be to use a voltage converter.

I hope this helps.
