Kitchenaid k45ss won't turn on

I've had this mixer a number of years, wonderful machine! Moved to Wyoming from Alabama a few years ago. In transit, I guess it got knocked around a bit. The beaters beat against the side of the bowl something awful. Lost my manual in transit, couldn't figure out how to adjust it. Haven't tried for two years. Now I downloaded the manual this evening, but find the machine won't turn on at all....

Any suggestions?

If you remove the top you will find a tiny fuse wrapped in a black band on the left side from the back. It connects two white wires which power the top-side motor brush. Most likely this needs to be replaced. You can check by bypassing it with roach clips or a copper wire. Unplug the machine first and be careful!

If the beaters are clanging against the bowl you need to adjust the head height of the mixer head, The adjudting screw is nylon so it would not be surprising if it went in or out during the move. If you have a tilt head mixer, raise the motor head and look into the frame / base that holds the head and you will see a screw that screw will raise or lower the beaters away or towards the bowl. The clearance for beater from bowl is 1/16 inch between the beater and the bowl. that should stop the beaters from clanging on the bowl.

Check the plug, and wiring if it has been bounced around, try turning the beaters, if turning power on does it click? if so it might just be the brushes.

Kitchenaid mixer K45SS only has one speed, slow. Have taken apart and regreased the machine. I plugged it in while the planetary head was off and it went through the speeds as normal, but as soon as

I have a Kitchen Aid k45ss that was dropped a few years ago. I works fine but the speed switch doesn't want to stay in the off position so we have to unplug it. I opened the unit and the switch...


When you said "the speed switch doesn't want to stay in the off position", you meant to
say "the speed switch in the OFF position does not turn OFF the mixer", or "the speed
switch physically cannot be moved to the OFF position"?

In any case, try to adjust the mixer speeds.
Obtain a copy of the K45SS Repair Part List from Kitchenaid.com.
Remove the screw holding the End Cover and locate the three screws from the Control Plate.
All three (2 top left and right, and 1 bottom) must be adjusted.

1. Loosen the lock nuts enough & Turn the 2 top screws clockwise until they cannot be turned
anymore. Leave the bottom screw alone for now.
2. Use a dab of white paint or paper whiteout to mark the positions of the Phillips screws.
3. Plug in your mixer and Set the speed selector to "Stir".
4. Turn each top screw One full turn couterclockwise (alternating between Left and Right)
Keep making one full turn at the time (for both left and right) until the motor starts running.
5. Put your hand near the Agitator shaft and allow it to brush your finger slightly. Use your
watch or clock and start counting the number of times the shaft touches your finger in
60 seconds. The correct count should be 60 RPM (Rounds Per Minute). If it is less
or more than 60, give each screw 1/4 turn counterclockwise or clockwise and start counting
again. Now tighten both lock nuts.
6. Set the speed selector to "6" and turn the bottom screw either clockwise or counterclockwise
to achieve a speed of 180 RPM.

For your reference, the planetary RPM's for the 5-qt. tilt-head Artisan Stand Mixer are as follows:
Stir speed - 60
Speed 2 - 95
Speed 4 - 135
Speed 6 - 180
Speed 8 - 225
Speed 10 - 280

Does the kitchenaid K45SS have a hall effect sensor?


The K45SS has three components that regulate the speed: the Governor Assembly (35) a Control Plate Assembly (36) and a Phase Control Board (39/40 depending on the voltage of the machine). I attached a schematic of the machine to this post. You can find the parts on our website under K45SS if what you need is still available. If you don't see it contact us and we'll see if we can get them for you.

Beater won't come off


I am guessing you mean the bowl is stuck. When this happens tap the handle on the bowl a few times. I usually use the palm of my hand.

I used my machine tonight and now it dripping


Hi, REDASPEN100. Sorry to hear about your mixer’s leaking grease (oil) from your planetary/agitator shaft (‘metal finger’). It can be a distressing sight, but there’s no need to panic. You say your mixer is almost brand new. Is it still under warranty (you’ve owned it less than one year)? If the answer is yes, then I’d let KA fix it or replace your mixer on their dime. Contact them immediately and tell them about your problem with the oil leak.
The KA website is at: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home. Click on Customer Care>Contact Us> and the toll free phone number is listed to speak with someone. You can also look under the Warranty & Service Plans to see what KA will do for you. I've extracted parts of it here:

We’re so confident the quality of our products meets the exacting standards of KitchenAid that, if your mixer should fail within the first year of ownership, KitchenAid will arrange to deliver an identical or comparable replacement to your door free of charge and arrange to have your “failed” mixer returned to us.
Your replacement unit will also be covered by our one year full warranty. Please follow these instructions to receive this quality service.
If you reside in the United States and your KitchenAid® mixer should fail within the first year of ownership, simply call our toll-free Customer Satisfaction Center at 1-800-541-6390, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.,
Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, Eastern Time. Give the consultant your complete shipping address. (No P.O. Box Numbers, please.)

When you receive your replacement mixer, use the carton and packing materials to pack-up your “failed” mixer. In the carton, include your name and address on a sheet of paper along with a copy of the proof of purchase (register receipt, credit card charge slip, etc.).

I hope this helps. - Howard, Burke, VA

K45SS cycles on low speed, then has only one higher speed


It sounds like you may have an issue with either the governor assembly and or the main control. If the speed you are getting is constantly going up an down in RPM then this could indicate that the governor has simply become worn and its resistance is gone. If however you get no speed at all and then all of a sudden you get a high speed then it will most likely be the main control. Part number for the governor assembly is 17830. Part number for the main control is 240904−2. Both are relatively simple and cheap to replace. Hope this helps

Thanks

I just got a KitchenAid INC Classic model K45SS-won't turn off


Yes it sounds like it should be easy to fix. You will need to establish what is preventing the speed control mechanism from moving as it should. It sounds mechanical. Try removing the back cover and checking what moves (or doesn't) when the speed lever is moved.

Kitchenaid not working. Before it "died" it wouldn't turn off


When an appliance reaches the age that yours has it may be prudent to bite the bullet and purchase a new one. good luck
