Re: 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.

MY kitchen Aide mixer was running alittle rough /loud and now has stop completely. It is approx 24 years old and has never had any problems. It is hard to find a local repair [place. any suggestions

Two things you can do for a 24-year old machine:

1. Replace both motor brushes (Black large plastic Caps on each side
of the Moto Housing). Without these, the motor wouldn't even run.
2. Replace the Worm Gear (the cause of the Rough Loud noises)

Download a copy of the Repair Part List from for
your model KSM90.

Also don't forget to tighten all the screws inside the mixers and use
fresh Kitchenaid Grade Food Grease for all the gears.

Hello, my Kitchenaid stand mixer KSM90 Ultrapower will not turn on. Have just replaced the phase control board and new brushes, still have the same problem

Check that the brushes are the right way round. They will go in the hole in four positions, but only one is right. Use a torch to check inside the hole. Also check the fuse.

KitchenAid 300 Watts KSM90 Ultra Power sparking

Sparking is a safety concern and Kitchenaid will see it as such. I would suggest calling Kitchenaid Customer Service. They are likely to exchange the product, regardless of warranty or age, because of the potential safety concern.

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

Metal stem broke!

you should be able to order the part from while you replace the stem it might be a good idea to replace the hub, and the gear assembly in the planitary unit

Mixer Repair

Kitchenaid doesn't repair anything over 1 year old. I have one that is 3 years old (KSM90). I have used it less than 10 times and it stopped working. The plastic piece in the back of the unit that holds all of the wires snapped. There are no repair centers in my state (new mexico). They told me I can pay $32 to have them send me a "repair kit" that includes shipping to and from a repair center and a box and packing materials. They then call you to tell you how much the repair is going to be. If you choose NOT to have them repair it, they charge you a $25 diagnositc fee just for looking at it on top of the $32 you spent to ship it there and back. It's a shame that this appliance costs over $300 and this is the service they give you.
