KSM88PSQGC0 won't turn on

There are a few things that may cause this. In no particular order they are:

1. No power at electric outlet.
2. Brush(es) worn out.
3. Switch on control board not making contact or speed link broken.
4. Mixer's power cord faulty.
5. Connection to control board not making contact.
6. Field coil or armature faulty.
7. Highly unlikely -- contact to a brush sleeve has slipped out.

How to replace power cord?

Replacing a power cord is fairly straightforward for those who already have a little experience.

The power cord is either obtained as an assembly as a spare part for your machine or bought as a simple length of cable from the local hardware or electrical shop. If the strain relief grommet is moulded onto the cable an assembly will probably be needed.

Carefully removing the existing lead will provide a pattern with the correct dimensions to cut the replacement, remove the insulation, etc.

Appliances use a variety of methods of connecting the power cord into the internal terminal block but which screws to remove is usually an intuitive process.

REPAIR MANUAL FOR KENWOOD KM405 you mean that you want to replace the cord, or past that and inside the actual component? And both will require actually opening it up.

These mixers last for years and years. Aside from the fact that you could have a FIRE from a frayed electrical cord, interruption of power to the motor can cause additional problems. Get the Manual with all of the details on repairing the unit. Replace that power cord NOW! When the Housing is open, take a tooth brush or stiff paint brush and whisk out the debris collected inside over time. Check the contacts on the speed selector and look for any black deposits or surface material that may be there.

Hobart k45 won't run

the K45 was introduced in 1962 and ran until 1978 when the K45SS was introduced. You have an open circuit inside, you need to open the machine from the rear and look to the power cord connections. make sure that the wires are connected and none are floating loose. the next step would be to replace the speed control switch. then check your carbon brushes if either one of the brushes are down to the nubs then it would cause a short when you turned it on, if that is the case then be glad that you have breakers and not fuses because you would have fried your motor. the speed control switch has no power attached to it. ifg the problem still exist after checking power cord, speed control plate and brushes then you have a fried armature or stator either can short the system if they have a burned wire inside especially the stator.
let us know how you fare on this after you check out the first easy steps, we can help with the harder fix also.

My KSM150PS stopped working!! HELP!!

Can you tell us what you were making last time you used the machine? Do you do pizza and other doughs a lot. The KSM150 is a 325 watt mixer with lots of power so;
1 first lets go back to the outlet and try anything that can show fast results like a hair dryer to test the outlet.2 The cord from the mixer, do you unplug it by pulling on ti? Or do you use the plug itself when unplugging. Do you have and know how to use a volt meter. If yes to both
3 Remove the rear cover and you will see a black and copper plate with a whole bunch of connectors on it. the left two bottom black and white terminals are the power for the mixer, turn the mixer on and test the terminals to make sure the machine is getting power, if not replace the power cord. You will have to open the machine and take it apart somewhat to replace the cord.
4 it could be the speed control plate itself (Most likely) there are three screws on the plate in an upside down triangle, turn the one on the bottom left a little bit while the mixer is on if it is the adjusting screws it should start again with less than a half turn.
5 Look at all the terminals to the speed control switch and make sure that they are connected if any one of them has come off then the machine won't work.

There can be other problems but this fix is the most common. Let us know if this does not work and we can go into it a little more in depth.

If you leave the machine on for a minute or more does it start to smell (burnt smell or hot electric) If you have a warranty (still within the first year of purchase ) get in touch with Kitchenaid they will send a new mixer with out question. If you are out of warranty then we can fix it, one step at a time, or you could take it to an authorized service center, if you live close by to one. Let us know.

Bosch universal mixer 800W. How do I change a 110 volt to a 220 volt? Is it possible?

Bosch is not very good about putting manuals or other documentation online for older products, so I'll have to give you generic advice.

Some electric motors have optional voltage connections. If your motor has this feature, there will be a box or removable plate on the motor with 110 Volt and 220 Volt connections inside. You would need to replace the line cord with a 220 Volt cord having the correct plug for the location you plan to use the mixer, and connect the motor "hot" wire to the 220 V connection in the motor junction box instead of the 110 V connection (the neutral wire goes to the same neutral).

If there is no such option available on the motor, you would also have to replace the motor with a 220 Volt version. Check the labeling on the speed control (inside the mixer) to be sure it is rated for 240 VAC, and check the power label by the power cord. If the label gives a single range of input voltages spanning both 110 VAC and 220 VAC (e.g., "Input 97 V- 265 V") then you only need to change the plug. Unless the electrical parts are all rated for 240 VAC or higher, conversion is not safe.

Some products (especially desktop computers) have a recessed switch on the back that lets you select either 115 VAC or 230 VAC input power. If you have this on the mixer, all you have to do is use a small tool to push it to the other position.

An alternative is to get a 230 VAC - 115 VAC transformer or inverter rated for at least 800 Volt-Amps and wire it with a 230 Volt plug on the primary side and a 115 Volt socket on the secondary side; then you can just plug in your unmodified mixer to this. If you cannot find a box like this, you can buy a "control transformer" from an industrial equipment supplier and put it in a suitable metal box. I recommend including a power switch and a 4 Amp dual-element fuse or breaker on the primary side circuit; you don't want somebody burning up the transformer with a 1200 Watt microwave oven or griddle.

The cord has a short and I need to replace it

Hi, this is a very simple process. I don't know if the cord is a 2 prong or 3 with the ground, but it makes no difference. You should have screws around the perimeter of the mixer that you need to take loose to separate the half's. I am assuming the cord is built into the mixer, if not please correct me. The end of the cord will be connected to the on/off control, may it be a trigger type or slide or what ever it has. You will have either a black wire which is hot, connected to the switch so the switch can break the connection to turn the mixer on and off. The other wire may be white which is neutral connected to another wire in the mixer, you will see this. If it has a ground, 3 prong, it will be green and will show you where it connects. If it is just 2 prongs, the 2 wires may both be black and in this case you can connect them to either wire they are showing you. I don't believe the connections are soldered, they may be screw connections or wire nut connector's. If it would be easier for you, take the mixer with you to your hardware store such as Home Depot as they have many different cords to choose from, and you will get help in the electrical section to make sure you have all you need. Just take your time and put the wires back in the same way as the old cord was wired. If the cord is a detachable cord, take it with you and match it with one that has the same connections and 120 volts. You do not have to buy a Black and Decker cord to do this. There are many cords that will do the job just as good if not better. Keep me posted if you need my help.
