Question about KitchenAid KP26M1XPM Professional 600 Series 6Qt Stand Mixer

Open Question

Mixer will not start

My wife removed the rear cover to clean flour from the vent openings. The mixer ran perfectly before this but when she reinstalled the cover it will not turn on. No buzz or any motion at any speed. It has power to the control panel and to all prongs on the panel. ????

It could be the phase control, or it could be that the governor assembly or associated spring is missing or malfunctioning.

SOURCE: My Kitchenaid K5SS 300 watt standing mixer launches into the highest speed regardless of the speed ....

I would recommend that you first check the Hall effect sensor which determines the speed.  I had this exact problem (but mine occurred with a 600 professional model) and I actually went out and bought another Hall sensor for about $13.  I replaced the original sensor and made sure that the connection between the sensor and control board was nice and snug. My blender worked as good as new! But I was curious to know if my original sensor was defective so I put it back in mixer and again made sure all of the connections were tight.  Guess what?  My original sensor also made my mixer work!  There was nothing wrong with my original Hall effect sensor except the connection between the control board and sensor was not adequate--unfortunately I didn't check the connections before I decided to buy another one. My guess is that the connection between the control board and the sensor probably loosens or comes undone over time from use and vibrations. 
1.  Download the mixer parts and diagrams from the Kitchenaid website to see what the Hall effect sensor looks like. 2.  You'll need a phillips head screwdriver to open up the mixer. 3.  Make sure that the connection between the control board and sensor is absolutely tight and snug. 4.  Also, make sure that the orientation of the sensor connection between the control board and sensor is correct. it's hard to know which way the sensor should be connected because the control board has three prongs and the sensor can attach facing up or facing down. If, after you've made the connections, the mixer still doesn't work.  Disconnect the sensor and reconnect it with the prongs facing the opposite direction and try it.  I actually found the right orientation through trial and error.  By going through this trial and error, I also had my Eureka moment when I realized that the original sensor probably would also work it were reconnected with correct orientation.   5.  This whole process probably takes less than 10-15 minutes to perform.

I would recommend that you first check the Hall Effect sensor which determines the mixer’s speed.  I had this exact problem and I actually went out and bought another Hall sensor for about $13.  I replaced the original sensor and made sure that the connection between the sensor and control board was nice and snug. My mixer worked as good as new! But I was curious to know if my original sensor was defective, so I put it back in mixer and again made sure all of the connections were snug and tight.

My guess is that the connection between the control board and the sensor probably loosens or comes undone over time from use and vibrations. To fix your problem:
1.  Download the mixer parts and diagrams from the Kitchenaid website to see what the Hall Effect sensor looks like. BTW the part number is 9703312.

2.  You'll need a phillips head screwdriver to open up the mixer gear case cover.
3.  Make sure that the connection between the control board and sensor is absolutely tight and snug.
4.  Also, make sure that the orientation of the sensor is correct.  It's difficult to tell which way the sensor should be connected because the control board has three prongs and the sensor can attach facing up or down. After you've made the connection, run the mixer. If it still doesn't work, disconnect the sensor, reconnect it with the prongs facing the opposite direction and try it again.  I actually found the right sensor orientation through a little trial and error.  But by going through this trial and error, I also had my Eureka moment when I realized that the original sensor probably would also work if it were reconnected with correct orientation.  
5.  This whole process probably takes about 10-15 minutes to perform.
6.  Finally, use your common sense and make sure to unplug the mixer before checking, connecting or disconnecting anything.

SOURCE: My wife's kitchenaid classic 250 watt mixer wobbles on the base

It sounds like your mixer likes to take a beating, ive never dropped one and for good reason, they weigh quite a bit. first check to see if all the rubber legs on the bottom are still there. if they are the only possible solution to fix it after being bent or warped is to either re-shape the part using a tool strong enough to do the job, or to replace the parts needed. the hinge pin part number is 16910. is the base is bent the part number is 240151-1. If the lower portion of the mixer itself is bent or warped this is a serious problem and will require you to dissassemble the entire unit. part number for the lower gearcase is 240350-4 Please not that all the parts list are white in colour. hope this helps.

Thanks

My artisan mixer will not turn back on


Make sure it's unplugged, remove and inspect the carbon brushes one at a time under those black screws on the side. They are keyed with one corner of the square ground off so will only go in properly one way so eyes open when you take them out. If they are less than 10mm long replace them. Next would be look under the back cover for a broken wire to the black square speed control plate. Broken wires are only likely to be one of the bottom 2 on either side. Any more testing is going to require a multimeter.

Why won't our kitchenaid stand mixer run?


He rdnowak:
I am sure #10 in the highest speed, but are you saying it will only run at #10? if so I would start by removing the cover again. Hopefully no parts are missing. Make sure the selector switch is moving things on the board if possible. I mean if you can move it with you finger you should be able to move it with the selector lever. Sorry for the trouble but I have never taken mine apart I just clean the out side. I do no this. Sometimes I must take something apart and reassemble them several times before getting them to work the way they are supposed to.
Best of luck

I have dry hardened dough stuck in the motor area, i need to open it up and remove the flour which is ratteling


hi. 1. remove the screw near the cable. 2. use something sharp, small and robust to lever out the white screw cover which is underneath and in the middle. it looks like plastic moulding. 3. the screw head has a raised middle in the flat head groove. I put a medium flat head screwdriver in a vice and used a hack saw to remove some metal in the middle. it only took 15 minutes so don't be put off. unscrew. 4. lift off the cover. 5.use a toothbrush and the something pokey to clean.

Can't get my beater off my KitchenAid 350 Watts mixer


The button does not retract, a bit of CRC may help combined with a lot of wriggling and grunting. Flour gets in there over time and builds up and makes the paddle tight. Rasp it out a bit in the hole, try not to remove metal, you just want to remove the buildup. If you had a bottle brush that fitted and cleaned it in there each time it will never happen again. Look how long it has taken so far.

After putting flower into mixing bowl large quanity of flower is ejected when mixer is turnon at low speed. Once it starts to mix then it's ok.


Firstly, I think you mean "flour".
Put in your ingredients. Cover the mixer, head and bowl, with a dishtowel. Turn on mixer to "stir" (or lowest speed). But! Mix only for 1 or 2 seconds. Repeat this, with bowl covered, until flour is mixed in enough not to fly out.
Happy baking!

Dough hook stuck in machine


Hi. Is it possible that some of the dough or flour you are mixing has made it's way into the attachment point with each batch, and therefore gumming it up progressivley ? Carefully lay the mixer on one side, being carefull not to lay it on the side mixer controls. Use a rolled up towel to support the head, this will make it easeir to see the attachment point. If there's a buildup of flour, wet it with warm water and a little liquid soap, until it softens, remove the attachment and clean the areas of contact. Apply a bit food oil to the hook before using next time.

Re: your second mixer The head locking pin may also have flour in it. This would inhibit the movement of the locking mechanism along it's guides. You may have to do some disassembly to get it cleaned out. After cleaning put a drop of regular oil on the moving parts. Be sure to clean the recess that the pin fits into as well.

If that's not your problem, then the pin may be worn enough to not fully engage.

Loud and throws flour all over


Do you find the motor running too fast at the lowest setting? Then you need to bring it to someone to adjust the low speed setting. If you are preparing double batches you are over loading the mixer and/or using too fast a speed setting to mix. Don't try to double recipes just because the bowl can handle the volume, the motor cannot and will not last very long if stressed mixing dough frequently.
