    Beaters will not spin. A second motor turns the bowl stand. We have been able to get the beaters to turn occasionally so we know the motor is working, we strongly suspect a short or a loose wire but we are unable to get the motor out of the housing. We also can not remove the rheastat from the rear of the unit. Any suggestions on how to disassemble this unit to check wiring would be appreciated. The unit is over 2 year old(out of warrentee) Sunbeam model #2351 Thanks

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

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!

One of my blades is stuck and I can't engage the release


Make sure your Beater can slip in and out of the Beater Shaft
easily. Do not force the beater onto the Shaft if the shaft is bent.
If it cannot be removed easily by hand, use a soft rubber mallet
(not a steel hammer) to slightly tap the beater so it can be moved
up and down the shaft or from side to side. Then you can easily
turn the beater left and remove it from the shaft.

From Kitchenaid Manual:
To Attach Flat Beater, Wire Whip, or Dough Hook
1. Turn speed control to OFF.
2. Unplug stand mixer or disconnect power.
3. Tilt motor head back.
4. Slip beater onto beater shaft and press upward
as far as possible.
5. Turn beater to right, hooking beater over pin on shaft.
6. Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.

I have a 600 watts stand mixer, one time i put too much flowers and it just stop mixing in the middle and making the loud jam noise. now it won't complete the circle and alway jam half-way and stop...


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.

Best regards, --W/D--

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!!!

MOTOR SPINS ON MY CLASSIC STAND MIXER BUT GEARS DON'T ENGAGE


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 mendingshed.com 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.

Turntable does not turn. Motor runs. Beaters work.


I have the same one, and the turn table has never turned on it's own. from looking at the bottom of the stand, i think the mixers are supposed to turn the bowl, so i just give it a little turn, and the mixers kinda take care of the rest. BTW, i got 2 sets of beaters with mine and i dont know what the second set is for, do you? contact me at rawemo@hotmail.com
