Question about KitchenAid Food Mixers

Open Question

KitchenAid 300w Mixer no power.

I have assured there is power (meter).to the spade connectors. I have checked the condition of the brushes. Is the unit fused?

Side Bar: I have noticed some of the gear oil had dripped from the front. Likely due to storing on it side of something.

SOURCE: how do I add oil to my kitchenaid stand mixer?

if the oil is black or dark green this is the transmission grease. There is plenty in the case don't worry. You may have a cracked transmission case or a bad gassket. I think the most likely thing is a loose screw or two. Take the trim band off, 1 screw. Then take the 4 screws that hold the cover on. You can now lift the top and take a look for the sourse of the leak

SOURCE: No Power to Mixer

If the motor worked prior to removing the brushes you most likely installed the brushes incorrectly. Remove the brushes and using a flash light look in the brush holder on the mixer. You will notice a small tab at the very end. That tab will prevent the brush from coming in contact with the motor armature if installed incorrectly. Clock the brush so that the angled side lines up with the tab and you should be back in business. Also if you are installing the original brushes use the wear marks to determine which side the brush came out of.
The original issue you had is most likely the nylon gear that is talked about in other posts on here.
Good luck

Hi . Chevron FM ALC EP-2 grease is what you need for the lubricant. This has a Mineral Oil base, allowing for it to, at some time, drip into whatever it is that you mix without concern for your health. From what I can, tell this is the only thing that needs to be done. Clean out as much of the old grease as possible.

Hi Gail. Kitchenaid no longer has a Parts List for your model. This means that they consider it obsolete. Do an Internet search for parts. You may get lucky. Good luck!

My Kitchenaid Mixer stopped working. Saw a mention of replacing the thermistor? Or is it the motor or control panel?

Make sure that the carbon brushes are not worn out or if you have already had them out make sure that they have been put back in properly. There is one corner ground off each brush that needs to line up with a blocking corner in the brush holder. Then get your multi meter out and check the unplugged main cable for continuity to the speed control panel. Then check each half of the field assembly for continuity from the speed control plate to a brush holder. Check you have no broken wires to the speed control plate. Check that the switch on the speed control plate is functioning. If all that tests OK I'd replace the phase board, it's worth not much and worth a shot.

KitchenAid mixer does not turn on

Check the motor carbon brushes, remove the back cover and check for broken or disconnected wires. Using a multi meter check the main cable for continuity from wall plug to the speed control board. That will be the black wire and the white wire at the bottom on one side of the control plate. After that check fields for continuity, that will be between the 2 wires on the bottom on the other side of the control plate and the brass insert inside the brush holders. One of the wires will be a circuit through the fields to one of the brush holders.

I need the beaters for the Bravetti 300W hand mixer

I realize this is an old post however I have the same issue. The mixer in my opinion is the BEST on the market, or was as the case is. I found that Kitchenaid hand mixer beaters are very similar and work as well as orignals.

I just replaced worm wheel on my KitchenAid Stand Mixer. Power was working prior to worm wheel breakage. Mixer was running, but not spinning. Dismantled Mixer, and replaced worm wheel. Put back...

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.

KitchenAid Artisan KSM150BOB Stand Mixer won't start

It could be very easy. It maybe you have a the brush in the wrong way round or they have simply run out. They are on the sides under the black plastic caps. Although they will fit in the hole any one of 4 ways round, there is a key on one corner which means it will only go in one direction. Use a torch to look into the hole before you put it back in.
They shoud look like this : brush

Hi. Before you get too far, call kitchenaid parts to find out if they still have parts for your mixer. They no longer show a parts list for the KSM90 so your mixer may end up in the trash.

Go to and select the Kitchenaid products button then select Kitchenaid mixer parts. Near the top of the page locate the button for the free kitchenaid service manual. Download the manual and read about the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer.

This manual does not cover your mixer but is a usefull tool for working on any mixer. Good luck with it.

Kitchenaid ultrapower ksm90

Yes, First unplug the unit.On either sides of the mixer there are two black motor brush retainer screws. Carefully remove them paying attention to the motor brush keyed position.You will see that one side is keyed.Check to see if the brush is competely worn down,or possibly cracked ( replace ).Always reinstall brushes the same way they came out.This should solve the problem.
