Question about Food Mixers
Very old machine that has given sterling service since 1975 with no problem until this year. The motor stutters at slow speeds but is perfect at setting 5 and above I have replaced the brushes (there was about 1/3 of the old brushes still left) and it made no difference. It is a 2 capacitor motor with 3 wires - the black one appears to connect to the netral, the brown one connects to one side of the switch and the yellow one has broken off but looks like it should connect to the other side of the switch. Where should it connect ?
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

The 0.1 microfarad can be safely replaced with a 275 VAC 0.1mF mains capacitor. You can remove the clip that held the old electrolytic capacitor by sliding the old capacitor out and squeeezing the metal clip so that it disengages with the plastic base. The load resistor is 450 Ohm 15W or 20W wirewound. There is a 56 ohm resistor in series with the capacitor which helps smooth the speed change and reduces wear on the contacts. A 2W wirewound resistor works best. (It is worth removing the contacts and removing any pitting or carbon build up with fime emery paper). I have repaired about 20 speed controls sucessfully with these components.
