Re: not turning on

Look for an overload switch below that may have "popped out" just depress it and you should be OK

How to take the motor out of the k45ss? This is an older cream colored one.

rather than doing a motor tear down to take out the brush holders, try this. first turn the mixer on it's side. (Use a folded towel to avoid breaking the knob from either the lock or speed control) then tap the machine to see if it will dis lodge.if not a very small drill bit drilled into the stuck brush will usually work. drill a little way in and stop the drill, now pull out and the brush should come out with the drill bit. You may ahve to do it once or twice to get the brush out but it works for me the couple times I had stuck brushes. Dont push the drill hard let the bit do the work. Let us know if this helps.

Mixer will not turn on

Check to see if the motor brushes are worn or not sliding freely; you can do this without taking the mixer apart. On either side of the main mixer body, you should see a plastic screw-cap ~1/4" diameter. Take each off, and you should find a small black graphite (ish) chamfered block connected to the end of the spring. If the block is damaged, or even stuck when trying to pull it out, that's your problem. That is what happened to me. To fix, I used a pin to pry out the stuck brush/spring, then scraped around the inside to remove sticky debris. Also, I used a utility knife and gently shaved the sides of the block, so they'd slide more easily. After a few tests for smooth sliding, I reinstalled e brushes and the motor spins as normal. Best part: it was a FREE fix, and I didn't have to disassemble much! Do a search on YouTube for "kitchen aid mixer brushes", and you should find a helpful video from 'ereplacement parts'. Good luck!

Download a Copy of the Kitchenaid Service manual.

You may have to remove the Motor Housing and use a small screwdiver
to completely remove the brushes or all portions of them if they are broken.

It sounds like you have a stripped gear. I, too, had this problem when my bride dropped a wooden spoon into the bowl. You'll need to disassemble the mixer and determine the part(s) that need to be replaced. With a google search for parts for your model, you can not only locate the exact part, but can also get exploded diagrams for your model. Very handy indeed for disassembly/reassembly. I'd get the diagrams first and then determine the parts needed.

Hope that this helps you.

Wooden spoon killed the motor!

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!!!

Hi all. There is damage to the transmission caused by overloading the mixer with bread or cookie dough, or by dropping a spoon or measuring cup into the mixer while it was working.

Go to and download their free kitchenaid repair manual. This manual has all you, or a repair person will need to repair your model's mixer. Mending Shed also sells needed parts.
