How comfortable are you with electrical parts? With the mixer UNPLUGGED and the switch ON measure resistance between the (flat) plug pins. If it's infinite (no meter movement) which is to be expected, there is an open circuit. The switch could be open or the wire to the switch could be disconnected (improbable) or the motor could be burned out and open (not very probable).

Maybe you could take the switch to a shop and have it tested.

This is not really a solution, just step 1.

I own the 6 QT Stand mixer. Is there a Is there a 4 or 5 qt bowl that works with this mixer?


Kitchenaid does not make a 4 or 5 quart bowl that would fit your 6 quart mixer, but other 3rd party companies do!
You may be in luck.
I haven't seen this bowl in person, but it apparently will fit your 6qt mixer. Here is a link to a page selling the mentioned attachment. It comes in a set, with appropriate wire-whip attachments:

The model number seems to be valid-but given the age of the unit few parts are readily available. You might want to try eBay or a used appliance store (or even Goodwill) to find a donor machine.

I need a replacement motor on a KitchenAid Professional HD Stand Mixer (Model KG25H7XSL).


The loud pop was probably the soft start circuit board on the motor. You can buy this board at repair sites or Ebay. And yes, they make 220V versions of this mixer.

KitchenAid K5 Mixer Bowl Rocks Back & Forth


This may be explained with the bowl assembly. Being a bowl lift mixer, please follow the following steps to make sure the bowl is being secured before mixing:

There are the bowl-holding arms on the left and right hand side of the mixer. You will place the bowl on these arms, securing it onto the pegs.

Also, take your fingertips and press down firmly at the back of the bowl where it is resting against the base. You will hear an audible click as the bowl secures down into a spring latch mechanism on the stand mixer base, allowing the mixing bowl to sit flush and secure.

Power On Problem


Check to see if the contact points on the control board are working. Adjust the screws at the top of the control board until the contacts make contact. That should fix your problem.

Power On Problem


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!
