Take it to someone familiar with old Kenwoods. At the age yours is it can sometimes just be in need of a couple of capacitors on the speed control PCB.

What's wrong with it?


Switches have more than one pole. Pole to the lights work ... as does the bulb.
Either the poles to the motor or the motor windings are bad. I'd leave that to a repair shop.

Why My Hobart A200 20 QT Mixer ML #104858 Motor Is Smoking?


I think... without knowing that motor... that the capacitor is a start capacitor, and that the start switch may be trying to "start" the motor full-time instead of switching it out of circuit after it figures that the motor has spun up. I may be wrong - that design may be a capacitor-run motor (similar to a three-phase motor) - but I'm betting it's a start-only capacitor.

If you know someone with a capacitance meter, you could check the capacitor - for both capacitance (to be sure it matches the label) and leakage. Easy way to write that one off. Alternatively, you could rig it such that after the motor's wound up you could manually disconnect the capacitor and see what happens - either the motor stops or else the smoking issue stops.

Whatever you do, don't let it smoke very long. The varnish on the windings is only so thick.

I have a kitchenaid epicurian 475 w mixer and it stalled while kneading 5 lbs of flour. I saw some smoke coming out of the motor area. I let it cool down and thought it would restart but no luck. I


Maybe Maybe not. There is a computer style speed control board inside the mixer that can get real hot when the mixer is over loaded and the circuit can burn out, $30.-$35.00 dollar part easy fix, or the motor at $90.00 to $100.00 to replace. You can do either fix yourself with the new design. I have only replaced one motor in the Kitchen Aid mixers in all the years I have been fixing them. Only replaced one full motor. Go to kitchenaid,com and download a parts list for your model from the support tab and it will guide you to the part number and the path to follow to fix it. of course if it is under warranty KA will fix. If you are near an authorized repair center you could take it to them the part and labor to fix $165.00 if motor, $80.00 if they have to replace the board. If you are adveterous you can DIY.

Motor may be burned out


Any time an electrical motor burned out, a smoke clound come out and a very unpleasant smell come out. If you did not anticipate the above then look for problem elsewhere.

My mixer just started smoking while i was mix some


Your mixer may still be good, let it cool down and then check it out, If it runs OK then there is no problem. The motor in your mixer probably over heated from trying to mix bread dough which will make any mixer work hard. These mixers will get warm when over worked but unless heavy smoke was coming out and you were getting a burning enamel smell it is probably OK. Let it cool and try it but I suggest you not use it for bread any more.

Sunbeam Mixmaster is smoking from the motor.


I wouldn't turn it on again , if the switch is smoking then for all practical purpose;s the brush;s are nearly shot as well. I would look around the good will thrift shops or a Salvation Army Store you ;ll find a nice one there for less than a repair bill. You never know what you will find there. Have fun hunting.. DFD please rate me. Tku

My kitchenaid standmixer started to smoke, need to open


See my posts on removing the motor cover. DO NOT USE this mixer if it smoked. Something needs to burn to cause smoke. I doubt you can fix this without new parts.

My mixer started to smoke!!


If it started to smoke out the back it may just be the motor brush.There are several parts available online I have included one site of many HERE
There are a lot of parts sites available you may want to find one close to you.You can check your brushes before you order replacement ones by unscrewing the large black screws on each side of the mixer if there is not much left of the metal portion on the end of the spring that's the problem.Hope this helps you.

K45 started smoking while mixing cookie dough


There is the possibility that if the mixer is 30 years old and it has never been serviced that the gasket around the gear case is leaking oil and in that case it would not be hard to get liquids on the armature or the stator as the gear grease in the transmission is vegetable base grease and it separates into liquids and solid and when the head is tilted up the failed gasket allows the separated oil to leak down and to the rear onto the mixer right onto the motor parts. It maybe nothing more that cleaning out all the old grease and re-packing and adding a new gasket.
