According to one of your solutions rergarding a noisy k45 kitchenaid I removed the brushes to examine and upon multiple attempts to reinsert properly - the noisy machine no longer operates to make noise. ...
Hello; Bummer trade off, huh? Ok , here we go.Getting it to run again, then address the noise. The attached drawing shows how the brushes should be installed. The brushes take a set and must be placed back into the same holder and leading edge into rotation, set square on the armature, w/full contactand spring pressure. After Slidingthe brush in place, lift it slightly and let it drop back onto thr srmature. Not much and let the spring set the brush and align .You want to make sure the brush moves smoothly up and down. The part the brushes ride on is called the the commutator. The copper bars. Each is separated by a thin piece of mica. If there is any copper bridging the mic, the motor will be noisy and not run smooth. In this case, use an ice pick to scratch the mica so it's below the copper ba abou, never mind, just run the pick down the mica groove to keep the bars seperated. Put it all together and turn it on. You may have to tap the motor to get it going. Once it gets going let the motor run for about 15 minutes at high speed and 5 minutes at low speed, Good luck and take caution not to get shocked. I'm here so feel free to keep in touch. 909-630-3192. Ned
