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.

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.

I have a Kenwood Major mixer that gives off smoke an electrical burning smell from the motor when running. Is it worth repairing?


hi its not necessarily the motor but could be some capacitors on the speed control unit ( the control knob is attached to it) spares are reasonable to buy .you can find a dealer from kenwood.co.uk website..

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.

Mixer gets hot and smokes when in use.


Smoking and overheating during use does not usually indicate a problem with motor oil. Kitchenaid stand mixers have sufficient oil in them to lubricate the motor for its lifetime.

Smoking and overheating are geneally caused by overuse. Consult your use and care guide or Kitchenaid Customer Service to ensure the mixer is being used properly. Customer Service would also be able to send you a new Use and Care Guide at no charge.

Their toll-free telephone number is 1-800-541-6390.

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.

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.
