Why won,t it start


Make sure you have power at that outlet. If so, unplug and look for damaged cord. Then open and look for blown fuse.

Model khm9qwh5 won't start


This particular model has some sort of internal electronics that require a charge before the unit will function. As a result, when allowed to sit in the cabinet for a long period of time it will simply not turn on. Instead, all you will hear is a "click" noise when you try to power it on. When you get the dreaded "click" noise leave plugged in for several hours and try again.

Hobart A200 mixer won't start


My fantastic guy just rebuilt my A200. He says it's likely that your back plate is slightly off center so that the center arbor is touching the windings-- any contact and the machine won't run. The tolerances are thousandths of an inch in there.

Where does ground wire go


Hi there, If you can give me a little more information, I'd appreciate it. However, I'm going to give it my best shot to see if I can answer what I believe you're looking for. If you're talking about the outlet (receptacle) that you're plugging your appliance into, then the ground (green) wire, or screw on the bottom of the outlet is where you want to connect your third (ground) wire to. If you just have two wires coming off your outlet (receptacle) and can't find the third wire. Then you'd ground or connect a wire to the inside of the box, and then tie with the ground (green) wire coming from the green ground screw on the outlet (receptacle). The problem with house wiring is, a majority of your older houses outlets aren't grounded. If you have a 3-prong outlet, then maybe yours is. But sometimes, people just change these out for convenience purposes. And lastly, if you're talking about the grounded wire in your appliance - look for a green (ground) screw, otherwise you want to connect this to (or around) a metal screw on the inner frame. A majority of your old appliances were never grounded. So bottom line is; your appliance should work with, or without your ground wire. It would be preferable if it was grounded. But for operating purposes, its not. I hope I was able to answer your question for you. If not, feel free to contact me again. Good Luck, Jim

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.
The brushes need to be installed so that they both seat correctly on the armature's commutator. See the illustration below:

My Sunbeam Heritage MixMaster mixer just stopped running while making cake frosting. Is there a reset button anywhere?


If it is plugged into a circuit protected by a GFCI breaker, which it should be if it is a kitchen circuit, reset the breaker. If you know for sure there is power at the receptacle you have it plugged into, then the power cord is bad or you have an internal mixer problem. You will have to pay someone to repair it or take the mixer apart yourself and find out what is wrong. Before paying someone be sure and get an estimate as to the cost of the repair. In some cases you are better off buying an new mixer as the repair costs will exceed to price of a new one.

I have a kitchenaid stand mixer which kept slowing down and finally wont start at all.i replaced the bushes but still it wont start help!


Hi CHESTERMALPA, I hate it when that happens. It seems that power is not getting to the armature from the brushes so I would suspect that one or both of the brushes is (are) not seated properly. I'd suggest removing them again and making sure the contacts are facing in the right direction to contact the armature’s commutator. The concave contact face should be resting completely on the commutator. If you've turned it 90 degrees too much, it won’t' seat properly and the motor doesn’t get any juice.
Good luck, I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA\

My mixer wont start


First of all plug another appliance into the receptacle to make sure you have power there. If you don't have power at that receptacle you have blown a fuse or tripped a circuit breaker. good luck

Hobart 20 QT. mixer (HL 200) will not operate on a GFCI receptacle.


you need to replace the gfci,the older gfci's interpret these frequencies as a shock hazard and shut off power to the circuit.you can buy @hobart, part#913053, that should solve the trip problem. dont forget to vote thanks monomoy
