SOURCE: KitchenAid K5SS mixer speeds up beyond set speed.

I have the same mixer and I believe your problem is the governor that is on the back of the motor. You can figure it out by downloading the repair manual here:http://store.mendingshed.com/kitaidparts.html The manual has all the info you need; including a troubleshooting section. The governor is availible from the the same site here:http://store.mendingshed.com/kagovernor.html What tipped me off on my K5SS was looking at the governor as it ran and I could see it moving back and forth; not steady like it should. Good luck!

SOURCE: k45ss kitchenaid stand mixer, i took out the brushes

jrichards - I hate it when that happens! It seems that power is not getting to the armature from the brushes so I would suspect that one or both of the brushes is (are) not seated properly. Did you remove the brushes to replace them or were you just inspecting them? I'd suggest removing them again and making sure the contacts are facing in the right direction to contact the armature. The concave contact face should be resting completely on the armature. If you've turned it 90 degrees too much, it wont' seat properly. I hope this helps... Howard, Burke, VA

SOURCE: seating the brushes on the Kitchenaid ksm90 mixer

You don't need to seat the brushes. Remove the brush caps and pull the brushes out by their springs, being VERY careful to note the position of them since they only go back in one way. Measure the free length of the spring before pulling it out. It is critical that you write down the length sticking out with very slight pressure on it so that it is seated against the armature when you measure.

Clean the curved surface of the carbon brushes with a sharp knife being careful not to scratch the curved surface. If you have them installed wrong they will not go all the way in and will not contact the armature and it will not run. Measure the length, as done above, of the spring to make sure it is in correctly!! If it is not in correctly the spring will stick out 1/4 inch longer than it should.

Regreased kitchenaide mixer now won't turn on


Did you remove the carbon brushes. If so they go back in any of four ways. But only one way works correctly. If you did not remove the brushes then you need to set the speed timing on the speed control switch at the rear of the machine and you can find a YouTube video on this exact exercise on YouTube of course. You may have also reattached the wires to the speed control switch to the wrong connectors hence no work.

Kitchenaid ksm no power


The possible problems could be in no real order>>>
1. your power outlet in your house
2 the power cord to the mixer
3 the speed control switch inside the mixer
4 the carbon brushes inside the motor head of the mixer
5 the armature a motor part
6 the stator a motor part
The first four are easy fixes the last two will require a full tear down. but there are lots of things to test first. let us know.

My machine simply won't turn on .


Obtain a copy of the Repair Part List for your model from Kitchenaid.com.
Download a Copy of the Kitchenaid Service manual.

http://www.kitchenaidparts.be/centers/servicemanual/mixer.pdf
Remove both Brush Holder Caps (34), one on each side of the
Gearcase Motor Housing (1). The Carbon Brushes (29) are keyed
and designed to go into the Housing but only one way. Both must
make contact with the Motor Coils in order for the Motor to turn.
If they are improperly inserted or too worn out (replacement is
required) then your mixer will not run.

Will not run


Will need to check if the motor is working the power to the switch and then to the motor.
Look for a reset switch on the underside which could have reset, this can happen if there is an overload on the mixer.
If the motor is not working check if the brushes are contacting, if not clean and set.

No power after replacing worm gear in Kitchenaid KSM90 Mixer


Remove the rear cap from the unit. Power comes in from the black wire with the white being common. Hold a voltmeter lead on the white and check for power on the black. Power goes across the bottom of the speed control unit via a buss bar. Check for power on the right side, I think it is a red wire (may be a white one). Power is taken into the motor via that wire, goes thru the windings and the brushes and then out the other brush wire and back to the board. Check for power on the return wire. If it is dead then either the windings in the motor are burned out or one of the brushes is dirty and needs to be cleaned and reseated prpperly [note there is one and only one way the brush goes in!!!! Install it incorrectly and the brush will not touch the commutator.

Try that and see if it runs after cleaning the brushes.

The capacitor on the speed switch is burning out.


I have found that the capacitor is no longer available, along with
any of the motor parts. Armature, brushes, motor end bearing, etc, are not available.

The speed switch on our KitchenAid KSM90 won't shut off


Hi NORMR123, it sounds like your Switch Lever has loosened up and you just need to get to the attaching screw to tighten everything up. (I trust you reinstalled the motor brushes correctly so your mixer will run. Many folks attempt repairs by removing the brushes thinking it will provide access to the inside, then reinstall them incorrectly and wonder why their mixer doesn’t work.)
Be sure you have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website at: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> then enter the visitor type “Consumer” and the 6 character model number, in your case use KSM90P, in the Model Number box. Select one the files listed for your model that appears under Parts List (16): KSM90PSWH0.pdf (354.08 KB) and save that file to your PC (check to see if this matches your mixer model).
Although not providing step by step instructions, the Parts List manual provides an exploded view of the various component assemblies allowing you to see how the mixer all fits together. It is helpful for the disassembly, troubleshooting, and reassembly of your mixer.
Turn to pages 6 & 7, titled “Motor And Control Parts”, and locate Ill. Nos. 1, 2, 3, & 4. #1 is your Pivot Screw, which may have loosened over time. #3 is your Switch Lever and stud. Check the detent is present or rubbed down. If that’s the case, you may want to replace it.
As far as parts go, here are five potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com (for grease). Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do some comparison shopping.
Finally, here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer.
Between these three websites and their excellent pictures and descriptions and your Parts List manual, you should now be able to completely disassemble, inspect/adjust/replace your Switch Lever, and reassemble your mixer. Good luck, I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

KitchenAid KSM5PSGR Stand Mixer - attachments not turning


Hi Gail. Kitchenaid no longer has a Parts List for your model. This means that they consider it obsolete. Do an Internet search for parts. You may get lucky. Good luck!

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.
