SOURCE: Kenwood Chef A701A Motor - not running

I know this may sound stupid, but check that you have the earth wire from the mains connector, athinish black wire connected to the terminal on the mixer. My Kenwood would not run after i made a capacitor repar. The motor just "Buzzed" until i put the thin black earth strap back onto the casing.
I sincerely hope this helps,

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.

SOURCE: Sparking at brushes

This isn't abnormal although cleaning the armature with fine emery or sandpaper can help.BTW, new brushes will always need a period of run-in before their contact with the armature has reached its best.

How do I reattach the motor wire to the brush holder insert? Do I lube the new motor?


On one brush holder you push the clip on the end of the field wire between the bottom side of the square brush holder and the black plastic insert the holder is mounted into. On the other brush holder it pushes between the top side of the brass holder and the black insert. The bearing is pre lubricated but oil the armature shaft before sliding the rear bearing housing on.

Tip

KitchenAid mixer not running or needs new brushes.


If you run your KitchenAid mixer long enough it will need new brushes. Symtoms would be eradic running, runs slow (no additional noise) or a smell of sulfur when running.

If your unit has any of these symtoms you should change the brushes. Brushes are available at http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/Kitchen-Aid-Mixer-Parts/index.aspx . They cost $3.55 each and you will need two.

First remove the screws holding in the brushes and remove the brushes.
The brushes have one corner which is shaved off at a 45 degree angle. Make a note of which direction it is facing as this is how the new brushes must be orientated in order to seat properly.

The brushes are located on opposite sides of the main mixer body under a black cover plate with a slot. Remove the cover while holding onto it as it is spring loaded. Remove the brush. Do the other side also.

Remove two screws from the rear of the unit holding the cover between the two halves of the unit (top and bottom). You will need to remove all the screws on the underside of the unit. There should be four total.

Next you will have to remove the power beater driver located at the front of the unit.The shaft located vertically has a pin in it which needs to be driven out with a punch and hammer. Then a "C" clip must be removed from the shaft. Use a "C" clip plier available at any automotive parts store. Place the ends in the holes in the tips of the "C" clip and squeeze. This will release the pressure on the shaft and allow the clip to be removed.

Next pry the bezel off around the exterior of the plate which will expose about 6 screws which need to be taken out. When all the screws are removed you can remove the head assembly as well as the top of the unit exposing the motor armature. The armature will be the blackened, segmented part of the armature directly under the brushes.

At this point you should be able to see how burnt the armature is. Using crocus cloth (available at Lowes or Home Depot) clean the armature until it shines. Do not sand it any more than necessary or sand flat spots in it. A light contact is all that is needed.

Clean the armature with any good electronics parts cleaner, available at Lowes or Home Depot, to get rid of any filings. Clean up any filings or dirt in the unit.

Relubricate The gear box with light grease if necessary. Reassemble the unit and install the new brushes. The brushes will only go in one way and work. If inserted wrong, the unit will not run. The brushes must be seated on the armature.

During the assembly process remember to use Lock Tite on all screws to avoid future problems.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

Changed motor brushes, now it will not turn on


Dennis, that is a really easy fix, you just put the brushes in the wrong way. They will fit in any way, but only make contact in one position. If you remove the brushes, you will notice they are square but one side is tapered. Now look in the mixer, its helpful to have a flashlight, you will see the brush holder is square and in one corner is another square. You simply need to line the tapered end up to that square in the brush holder.

Keep in mind that square is in a different position on both sides, one is usually in the lower right corner and the other in the upper left corner.

Can I buy new parts for the two dime-sized screws' inners? I removed them nd now the mixer wont work.


What you are describing is the two side screws on the side of the mixer motor head. Yes you can buy all new parts for whats behind those screws or you can just buy new "Charcoal" thing...which are called "The Brushes" If you buy new parts off ebay or from Kitchen Aid you will have one very small concern. There are four different ways to insert the brushes back into the machine but only one way will make the machine work right or work at all. The brushes are spring loaded into the machine the screws caps keep them in and pushing them forward, the brush end rests on the commutator portion of the armature (The Motor) and when the brushes do not touch that portion of the motor the machine will not work at all until they are put in the machine correctly. You will notice on the brushes that one edge is beveled, inside the brush holder is a small metal clip/piece that has been bent up and into the brush holder space, the beveled edge must go in so that it will slide past this bent metal, if it is inserted incorrectly then the metal piece will hold the brush off of the comutator and the electric feild will not create the spark / energy needed to operate the mixer. If you want to replace all the parts associated with the brushes and brush holder you will have to do a FULL tear down of the machine in order to get at the set screw that keeps the brush holder tube in place, and to do that you will have to take the machine entirely apart. I hope this helps. If not; get back to us with more info on the problem and we will FixYa

My k5ss mixer will not start ,I remove the 2 screw on each side of the head, i put them back and now it wont start


Hi DENAULTR, I hate it when that happens. Those two “screws”’ are your mixer’s electric motor brushes. The slotted black threaded plastic parts are just the Brush Holder Caps and are the protective covers to the brush holder assemblies. They allow access to the brushes when they need to be replaced without having to take the whole mixer head apart.
From what you’ve described, I suspect that one or both of the brushes is (are) not seated properly when you reinstalled them. The brushes need to be installed so that they both seat correctly on the armature's commutator or you won’t get any ‘juice’ to the motor. See the illustration below:
9218969.jpg
I'd suggest removing them again and making sure the concave contact face rests completely on the armature’s commutator. If you've turned it 90 degrees too much, it won’t seat properly and you get no power to the motor.
It would also be helpful to have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case use KSM50P (Your K5SS mixer falls within this manual), and select the first file KSM50P.pdf (438.31 KB) listed under Parts List (4) and then check to verify this matches your mixer model.
Turn to pages 6 & 7, titled “Motor And Control Parts”, which provides an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer’s electrical components, along with all the part names and numbers. Locate Illus No 47, Brush holder assembly that includes Illus. Nos. #28, 32, 33, 34, & 46, and Illus. No. 29, Brush & Spring assembly respectively.
The Parts List illustration along with the picture above regarding the orientation of the brushes should get your mixer powered back up and operational. Good luck! I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

Hi TRADESGIRLS, you are correct, the brushes have to seat correctly on the armature’s commutator or you won’t get any ‘juice. Unfortunately, the ‘screws’ on the sides of the mixer are just the Brush Holder Caps (brush cover), which allow you access to the brush holder assembly and has nothing to do with ‘adjusting’ the brushes. From what done already, still I suspect that one or both of the brushes is (are) not seated properly.
