Kitchenaid mixer won't start at all, my husband has taken the back off and there is apparently only power on the black lower wire, any ideas?


Husband will need to check the carbon brushes and make sure they aren't worn out. They are also keyed and only will work one way. Check for continuity through the field wires one at a time. There should be a circuit between a field wire and a brush holder.

Will not turn on


Undo the black plastic caps, one on each side. You probably need new carbon brushes. Remove them carefully and note that the brushes will only fit one way there is a blocking stop on the inner edge of the brush holder, you can see it with a torch when brush is out. Line the chamfered off corner of the new carbon brush up with the blocking stop. On one side it is at the back at the top and the other at the back at the bottom ( I think )

Check the carbon brushes, look inside the hole, it is keyed, the brushes only go in properly one way. Match the missing corner on the brush to the blocker inside the brush holder.

How to replace motor brushes? I only can take the small springs after unscrewing the caps on both sides. The carbon brushes are still inside? Tell me how to take them out and just put new brushes with...


I believe the brushes and the spring are one piece, so the brush should come out with the spring. Either the brushes are so worn that you just aren't noticing the little bit that's left, or the block has come loose from the spring. You can tip the machine over so the brush hole is facing down and let gravity do the work. If there's any brush left inside, it should slide out. Otherwise just install the new brushes.
