Re: Motor is running, but mixer not turning
Hi mary. there is a phillips head screw in the rear of the mixer head. if you turn the mixer around you will see it in the band. remove that screw then remove the other four screws that hold the top on the motor cover. good luck with it.

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.
HI.Let me jusk ask if yiou also tried to connet to another socket.Let me just clarify that the motor itself did not work /rotate as well.Prior to that situation,have you tried to mix more than what is the capacity of your mixer.If possible motor was overworked/that's why its coil was burnt.There. are possibilities then. First might be that the mixers terminals inside will no longer engaged properly that's why it opens the circuit.Second the motor isn't working because the rotor and armatures coil was burnt because it runs beyond its maximum wattage capacity that's why it draws much current beyond the rotors coil capacity.Did you mixed something heavy.the motor works heavier the last time you used the unit?
Open the Transmission Housing and remove the two screws holding
the Motor. Lift it off the gears and test run it by itself. The motor
should run normally at different speeds. If it does, then you can move on
to the gears. Manually turn the Worm Gear and make sure nothing got jammed.
The Bevel Gear should turn smoothly.
It sounds like to scnearios are likely; First, the gears inside the mixer can brake if overloaded, and secondly the motor may be damaged. If the motor is damaged, it usually makes extra noise when running, sparks may fly, and overheating and burnt smell can be observed. If not it is probably a broken gear or two. The gears for this mixer can be obtained as a kit containing all the nylon gears and they are quite reasonably priced. You will need to open up the mixer by splitting the two halves. Spare parts can be found either from your local supplier, from braun.com online or any other online supplier of parts. Please see this link for information on how to open it up to access the gears.
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.
these mixers use an electronic triac(to vary the speed of the mixer) of such low amperage that they run hot normally(to wear OUT), and they don't fuse the units electronics or motor anymore so anything that binds them will short out the triac or motor winding(from heat) and make them inoperable,try and order(what they call) an internal electronic part from these companies and good luck, I tried for 3 months and told them what I needed,they agreed this part was defective, but they wont sell you an internal part(LIABILITY ISSUE) unless your a "company certified technician" go figure, I finally got one through N.T.E.semi-conductors. and my customers HAPPY NOW!!!
I am having the same problem. I tested the board with a voltmeter and insured that electricity was being delivered to the motor when the switch was on. That works on mine. So...I tried to find this thermal switch....most people say it is on the left side of the motor. I may be there, but my motor has a thick plastic case there and I can't figure out how to remove it.
