Depending on the make and model of your appiance and the type of motor used the capacitor would vary in shape and size. Usually cylindrical or square. Either plastic or aluminium casing. It will be connected across the motor windings. Look for a rated value printed on it in micro-farads.(uf) and a voltage.

KITCHENAID MIXER WON'T TURN ON ?


Remove the brush caps on the sides of the motor housing and check the carbon brushes. If they are worn out replace them. They are keyed and will only fit properly one way so be observant. If that's not the problem remove the back cover and check for broken wires on the black control plate. Make sure the switch on the bottom inside of the control plate is making contact. If still faulty check the cable for continuity to the control plate, cable connects to the black wire and the white wire on lower left of control plate. After that you need to check for continuity of the field coil windings. Only thing left after that would be the phase board pcb just above black speed control plate at the back.

Why My Hobart A200 20 QT Mixer ML #104858 Motor Is Smoking?


I think... without knowing that motor... that the capacitor is a start capacitor, and that the start switch may be trying to "start" the motor full-time instead of switching it out of circuit after it figures that the motor has spun up. I may be wrong - that design may be a capacitor-run motor (similar to a three-phase motor) - but I'm betting it's a start-only capacitor.

If you know someone with a capacitance meter, you could check the capacitor - for both capacitance (to be sure it matches the label) and leakage. Easy way to write that one off. Alternatively, you could rig it such that after the motor's wound up you could manually disconnect the capacitor and see what happens - either the motor stops or else the smoking issue stops.

Whatever you do, don't let it smoke very long. The varnish on the windings is only so thick.

How do I determine if the motor is burned out on my HB standup mixer model 84580?


call an electrician
it could be a thermal protection switch , start/run capacitor or dead motor
if it is a motor it is cheaper to get a new one and if you want it use it outside it's capacity then get a bigger replacement motor
for example if the current motor is 1 hp or 750 watts get a 2 hp or 1500 watts

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.

The mixer simply doesn't turn on. Worked fine yesterday. Today it seems like it's just dead


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?

Hobart A 200 Mixer


There are four possibilities to look at here. Assuming your mixer has a normal capacitor start motor (older a200's used a different style motor), possibilities are, in order of likelihood:

Motor start capacitor
Start switch (electronic or mechanical)
Burned wiring
Motor start winding

The start capacitor is located at the rear of the mixer. Remove the rear cover (4 screws) and pull the cover towards you. Disconnect one wire from the capacitor and test with any multimeter.

The start switch, if electronic, is able to be tested, but not very easily. Once you've eliminated the other possibilities, it's time to replace the (electronic) start switch. If the motor has a mechanical start switch, it's easy to test: Remove the two wires at the rear of the motor and test for continuity with the motor stationary. A multimeter should show near zero ohms for a good mechanical start switch.

Burned wiring should be easy to spot with some careful inspection around the motor, capacitor, and start switch.

Start winding: Look closely at the stator (stationary part of the motor). If some of the copper windings look significantly darker in color than the others, it's likely the start windings were overheated (the start windings are the thinner copper wires - if you look closely, approximately half of the wires are thinner than the other half). Look for a wiring diagram behind the power switch and determine which wires leading to the start switch and/or capacitor are for the start windings and test for continuity across the start winding. You should read a fairly small value such as 5 - 15 ohms. Values significantly outside this range could indicate a partially open or partially shorted start winding.

The capacitor on the speed switch is burning out.


I have found that the capacitor is no longer available, along with
any of the motor parts. Armature, brushes, motor end bearing, etc, are not available.

Does the Kitchenaid Model G / Hobart N-50 have a motor capacitor?


There does not appear to be one listed in the service manual. The manual is here Hobart 50 Service Manual

Kitchenaid mixer not running


Robbie. Are you getting any sound when you hit to start knob, or is it just dead silence? If you have dead silence, then it is definitely a power issue, which means it a couple of things could be conspiring to make your mixer not run. It may be a bad controller assembly (the speed knob), or it could be the motor, but either way it's something you can check yourself.
I'd start with the controller assembly and inspect that first. It's possible a connection has come loose. Unfortunately whole controller assembly is on a little PC board filled with resistors, capacitors and diodes, which was not meant to be 'home fixed'. My 'expertise' ends at being able to recognize a resistor from a capacitor, but I don't get much deeper than that. A local small appliance repair shop should be able to determine if the controller assembly is functioning properly or not.
The next possibility would be with the motor itself, but electric motors are pretty simple mechanisms and generally don't fail.
If your getting 'noise' from the motor but the mixer won't turn, then you've had a mechanical failure in the transmission box or planetary gear assembly of your mixer. The inspection and troubleshooting of the transmission is a DITY capability, particularly if your mixer is out of warranty. Just be sure to have the correct Part List manual around when you start to disassemble your mixer. You want Part No. 8212278 Rev D for your mixer, which you can download from KA customer service.
I hope this helps! Howard, Burke, VA
