Look carefully at the bruch, it should have a cupped chape that matched the curve of the armature. If it went in wrong, you may have wither broken the brush, or messed the armature. You can get new brushes online from many parts retailers, just google you part number and the word "brushes"

You may have to remove the Motor Housing and use a small screwdiver
to completely remove the brushes or all portions of them if they are broken.

Need to replace brushes for hobart k45ss mixer. Where can I find the parts


Hello Tony,

I have located the brushes for your K45 mixer, the Repair clinic has them in stock for $4.38 each, the Item # 1549909, and you may use the link below:
http://www.repairclinic.com/Kitchenaid-Motor-Parts?z=100&gclid=CKSD5NriuKcCFUVqKgodIE2b_g

You will also want to pay attention to the side of the brushed that are angled as they only go in one way. You will have to look inside the brush hole and make sure you put the angle to the same side as the angle on the inside of the hole and everything should work just fine.

Thank you for using FixYa to find your solution.

I took a KitchenAid K45 apart to clean (made in


What everyone is forgetting or they just don't know is that...The K45 introduced by Hobart in 1962 and was replaced in 1978 by the K45SS are two completely different machines. With completely different wiring systems. The K45 is wired together with wire nuts and the K45SS used connectors on the Speed control switch. All of the websites posted above are for the K45SS (Stands for Solid State) The manual for he K45SS is easy to get from Kitchenaid as the mixer electronics did not change from it's introduction in 1978 to 1986 when Hobart sold the Kitchenaid division to Whirlpool. The K45 on the other hand is a product and property of Hobart NOT Whirlpool or the Kitchenaid division of Whirlpool. The K45 Manual ... well I just can't find one! They way wires are routed is totally different in the K45 from the K45SS so the diagram in the K45SS manual does not help. Also the brushes in the K45 were square not camphor-ed like they are in the K45SS so there is no right or wrong way to insert the brushes in a K45. Whereas; in the K45SS there are four ways to insert the brushes in their holder and three of them are wrong. The K45SS brushes go into a completely different brush holder than the K45. The K45SS is the same today in 2012 as it was in 1978. The K45 is the same only from 1962 when Hobart introduced it to 1978 when it was replaced with the new Solid State model. prior to 1962 it was the K4-A model and it was different entirely. So if the people asking for help say their mixer is a K45 we should be asking for clarification as to a K45 or a K45SS.

KitchenAid model K45SSWH doesn't work


Check and make sure the brushes are in correctly. There is only one correct way. The brushes are tapered and need to go in with the taper bypassing the little notch inside. They hard to see but, they are in there, Good luck.
