jrichards - I hate it when that happens! It seems that power is not getting to the armature from the brushes so I would suspect that one or both of the brushes is (are) not seated properly. Did you remove the brushes to replace them or were you just inspecting them? I'd suggest removing them again and making sure the contacts are facing in the right direction to contact the armature. The concave contact face should be resting completely on the armature. If you've turned it 90 degrees too much, it wont' seat properly. I hope this helps... Howard, Burke, VA

Hi VARSHA0803 - You would think that KA would make a 220-240v mixer for overseas sales, but I do not know if they do. You can contact KA Customer service directly on their website at: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/customer-service/ Check the "Contact Us" box which provides you a toll-free phone number, or if you scroll down you'll find a 'Live Chat' link, where you can 'chat' online with a KA assistant who should be able to answer your questions.
I hope this helps. Good Luck! Howard from Burke, VA

SOURCE: mixer head loose
Referring to the diagram on:
Remove the screw, item 22, to remove the trim band around the mixer. This will reveal 4 screws which hold the top cover on. Remove the screws and lift the top off. Find all the screws which hold the gearhead in place and tighten them all. If you want to make the fix a permanent one put some thread-loc compound on each screw and tighten it.

Check the brushes. They get caked up with burned flour. Remove the brush caps and pull the brushes out by their springs, being VERY careful to note the position of them since they only go back in one way. Measure the free length of the spring before pulling it out. It is critical that you write down the length sticking out with very slight pressure on it so that it is seated against the armature when you measure.
Clean the curved surface of the carbon brushes with a sharp knife being careful not to scratch the curved surface. If you have them installed wrong they will not go all the way in and will not contact the armature and it will not run. Measure the length, as done above, of the spring to make sure it is in correctly!! If it is not in correctly the spring will stick out 1/4 inch longer than it should.
Keep turning the brush until you have the shortest amount of spring sticking out when you press it in all the way then slowly release pressure on the end of the spring. You will know when it is in correctly since the difference in length is noticable. The curvature on the front of the brush must line up with the curved surface of the armature which runs from the front of the mixer to the rear.
