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 Kitchenaid '09 12C has light on, but no action. All parts click into place appropriately. No reset on base.

If nothing is working then it is your control switch. Pretty easy to replace and get. Cant remember the site name but if you put in your Kitchenaid model name and serial number it will pull up the site for replacement parts.

Won't run.

A complete mechanical diagram and schematic are posted here at Fixya on another thread. Do a search for KitchenAide Classic Diagram or Drawing. When they stop running suddenly like that, it is usually one of the brushes got jammed up and no longer is in contact with the armature's commutator plates. Use a coin to remove the brush caps at each side, clean the brushes, springs and caps with rubbing alcohol, dry them before replacement. If it still does not work, you have bigger problems that will require a substantial amount of disassembly to isolate.

Kitchen aid mixer has a scream when using dough hook.

A little pin or setscrew or key has failed. Maybe a gear has slipped out of place. Anyway, the thing needs to come apart to find out what happened. When taking things apart, line up each item off in a tidy row, put screws in little containers near the part they fit. may have instructions, and probably have the parts.

Kitchenaid mixer speed

If it has suddenly got high speed all the time and the two adjustment screws at the top of the speed control board are not loose and have not been messed about with the most likely solution will be to replace the phase board. That's the little PCB just above the speed control board with the 6 wires coming out of it.

Kitchenaid mixer stopped working in mid-use. No warning and now it won't work at all--checked plug and electrical connection and that is fine

Mixer has a power control board inside the domed end cap. If it has failed then you this would cause these symptons.

Metal stem broke!
