Took brushes out of artisan KSM150pser and put back in and mixer won,t start.


Yes there is a secret, the brushes are keyed and you need to line up the cut off corner with the blocker deep inside the brush holder, use a torch.

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.

Mixer won't turn on after adjusting beater height


The kitchenaid warranty is exactly 365 days from date of registration "No Questions Asked" on day 366 you have no warranty and you gotta pay.
Now the good news; first check the wall socket, I know it works but check it anyway. then check your plug, did you step on it while you were working on the machine? The plug often falls to the floor during work and can get underfoot, you may have broken the plug it'self. next you will need a parts list for your model from Kitchenaid's website.
http://www.kitchenaid.com/customer-service/manuals/
My first suggestion is to try a minor adjustment of the speed control switch, they often get out of sync when you do something to the machine. You can find several videos of this on the youtube site. "Adjusting the speed control switch on kitchenaid mixer"
If the two or one of the top 2 screws on the speed control switch move it can shut the machine down just like an on/off switch. Did you remove the back cover during your adjustments? Did you remove and replace the carbon brushes on the side of the machine while working on the machine? If you did you might have put them back in incorrectly, if you did they will also act a a shutoff switch. If you did not take them out then DON"T as there are four ways to put the brushes back in and only one way is correct and there are two brushes to deal with. Has work ever been performed on the mixer before? Because if all you did was to adjjust the beater height screw then nothing should have effected the normal operation of the mixer. So if there is anything that you did but did not include in your description of work you performed then please let us know. We strive to give accurate solutions but... as I am a KA tech I do not have any other solutions with out the machine in front of me. Just so you know you can fix this yourself.

Kitchenaid stand mixer won't start after replacing gear


you either forgot a retaining clip or a pin. because it sounds as though the mixer is frozen completely, it also sounds as though you know how to do a tear down so I would suggest a full tear down and clean to make sure that you do not have metal shavings from the old worn gear that is capable of freezing your mixer, unlikely but it can happen, next is the speed control plate that may be out of tune and needs some readjusting. Let me know if this helps.

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.

Kitchenaid mixer motor quit , I dont really see any thing wrong with the brushes.


Obtain a copy of the Repair Part List for your model from Kitchenaid.com.
Download a Copy of the Kitchenaid Service manual.

http://www.kitchenaidparts.be/centers/servicemanual/mixer.pdf

First, you may want to adjust the mixer's speeds:

1. Loosen the lock nuts enough & Turn the 2 top screws clockwise until they cannot be turned
anymore. Leave the bottom screw alone for now.
2. Use a dab of white paint or paper whiteout to mark the positions of the Phillips screws.
3. Plug in your mixer and Set the speed selector to "Stir".
4. Turn each top screw One full turn couterclockwise (alternating between Left and Right)
Keep making one full turn at the time (for both left and right) until the motor starts running.
5. Put your hand near the Agitator shaft and allow it to brush your finger slightly. Use your
watch or clock and start counting the number of times the shaft touches your finger in
60 seconds. The correct count should be 60 RPM (Rounds Per Minute). If it is less
or more than 60, give each screw 1/4 turn counterclockwise or clockwise and start counting
again. Now tighten both lock nuts.
6. Set the speed selector to "6" and turn the bottom screw either clockwise or counterclockwise
to achieve a speed of 180 RPM.

For your reference, the planetary RPM's for the 5-qt. tilt-head Artisan Stand Mixer are as follows:
Stir speed - 60
Speed 2 - 95
Speed 4 - 135
Speed 6 - 180
Speed 8 - 225
Speed 10 - 280

Second, if the mixer won't run:
Remove the Control Plate Assembly (36), the Phase Control Board (39)
and the motor Governor Assembly (35). Inspect for loose connections,
burnt or damaged components. If they seem to look OK, re-assemble
them and test the mixer. If the motor still won't run, then I might suspect
a defective Phase Control Board (39).

Mixer won't start. Fell on its side and on/off lever was bent. Straightened and it now moves back and forth as it did before. I took out the two black screws at the top which hold in magnets on...


Get A Copy of the Repair Parts List from Kitchenaid.com
Make sure the Speed Lever and and the Speed Link are in place
and operating smoothly. The two Large black screws you are referring to
are the Motor Brushes Caps. The Carbon Brushes are keyed and
designed to be inserted into the Motor Housing but one way. If you
insert them in wrong, they will not make contact with the Motor Coils
and you mixer will never run.

All you have to do now is adjust the mixer speeds (if necessary):

Remove the screw holding the End Cover and locate the three screws from the Control Plate.
All three (2 top left and right, and 1 bottom) must be adjusted.

1. Loosen the lock nuts enough & Turn the 2 top screws clockwise until they cannot be turned
anymore. Leave the bottom screw alone for now.
2. Use a dab of white paint or paper whiteout to mark the positions of the Phillips screws.
3. Plug in your mixer and Set the speed selector to "Stir".
4. Turn each top screw One full turn couterclockwise (alternating between Left and Right)
Keep making one full turn at the time (for both left and right) until the motor starts running.
5. Put your hand near the Agitator shaft and allow it to brush your finger slightly. Use your
watch or clock and start counting the number of times the shaft touches your finger in
60 seconds. The correct count should be 60 RPM (Rounds Per Minute). If it is less
or more than 60, give each screw 1/4 turn counterclockwise or clockwise and start counting
again. Now tighten both lock nuts.
6. Set the speed selector to "6" and turn the bottom screw either clockwise or counterclockwise
to achieve a speed of 180 RPM.

My cuisinart 5.5 stand mixer when you press the on button it starts for a second then it stops.


Make sure the plug is securely plugged into the wall.
Next, remove and reattach any mixing arms etc that may be attached to the mixer. Having one not attached properly can result in a start, start.
If problem persistes make sure the speed is reset.

If problem continues, here is an excerpt from the user manual found here.

http://www.cuisinart.com/share/pdf/manuals/sm-55.pdf

Problem: Your stand mixer has an
overload protection device and if
overloaded, it will shut down to protect
the motor.
Solution: In the unlikely even that this
happens:
• Turn off and unplug the unit.
• Reduce the load by removing some of
the ingredients, and allow the mixer to
stand for a few minutes.
Plug in and reset the speed. If the
stand mixer does not start when you
press the on button, allow the unit to
stand for additional time.

If you are still having trouble, the product comes with a 3 year limited warranty, so if you're bought it within the last 3 years it may be covered.

Good Luck!
