SOURCE: Grinding noise when running.
It very likely sounds like a plastic gear that is worn. If this is the case, then a replacement is very likely stocked by the manufacturer only.
I advise opening the unit to identify which one you need, then 'phone the manufacturer with the make model and year of the product.
If they say they do not stock it - then I'm afraid that's as far as you can go with this.

You'd have to run a power test on the motor to know if it needs replacement, but I'm sure some parts could use lubrication after all these years, so it might just do the trick if you do that. Sometimes motor windings can short slightly, and it's hard to tell unless you have special devices to measure the motor's efficiency.
I think you're on the right track, but if you lubricate it good, possibly that will get it working 100% again.
If the lubrication doesn't work, I suppose the motor would be the prime suspect.
Anyway, good luck, and hope this helps.

You have to open the kitchen aid to find out the exact problem.Mostly the motor will not be a problem.
In many of the Kitchen Aid model the switch is the problem.Loose connection will cause this issue.If u have a humming noise noise but it doesn't work then motor coil has gone bad.If no noise switch has gone bad.So replace it accordingly.
Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)
