If the mixer died completely and no noise at all comes from the machine you need one of three things. 1. New brushes2. new speed control switch3. a new motor.
The KP26 is a 6 quart mixer of the new design, post 2002, it is easy to work on and relatively inexpensive for parts if it turns out to be the motor that will be about $100.00, the speed control about 30.00, the brushes on this mixer cannot be replaced you have to install a new motor, sry about that. Hope this helps let us know. But first check that the electric outlet you are working from has not tripped the breaker on the circuit too. I know I know it's silly to say but check the outlet first before you spend a dime on anything.
I think that the motor is still fine. Get a Copy of the Repair Part List from Kitchenaid.com. First thing I would do is to check the two Motor Brushes (one on each side of the Motor Housing). Make sure they are not worn out, and when inserted, they must both make contact with the Motor Coils. If even one of them is not in contact with the coils, the motor will not run. You can also remove the Motor Housing and visually verify that they are touching the Coils.
HI.When the stand mixer produces a popping sound during mixing this problem has something to do with the motor.Motor has bossing on it.This might not be lubricated well and eventually lossen up.That's why it produces a popping sound.And with regard to the burnt smell might be on the coil of the motor's rotor or armature.Is the unit still functioning eventhough you smeeell burnt wire?Thank you for choosing FIXYA..
find item 9. It is a hall effect sensor which measures the speed of the motor and feeds back that info to the controller - if it is open or shorted the motor will not be controlled and will either not run at all or run wide open.
