Question about KitchenAid KP50PS Professional 5 Series Stand Mixer

Open Question

KitchenAid KP50 Professional 5 mixer will not turn on.

KitchenAid KP50 Professional 5 mixer will not come on at all. When it was put away several years ago, it was reported to turn slowly, making odd noises, so i assumed a gear problem. I pulled the lower gear assembly, cleaned out the tons of packed grease, and looked the gears over, everything turns smoothly, and the gears appeared nearly new. Re-assembling, I tries the mixer, and nothing happened at all. All the wiring appears ok, with good connections. Bad motor?

There is an adjustment screw and a system for setting it. You can find a video of it here (or just a ton of people who know all about these mixers). I just found it while trying to troubleshoot the same problem for my wifes mixer.

I'd check the brushes. The big black screws on the side of the motor casing, easily removed, but becareful when you put them back. Here were some instructions from another site that helped me get them back in right:
The brushes in my model KP50PSBU must be insert in a particular manner in order for it to work correctly. If you remove the brushes and shine a flashlight into the hole, you should see a small detent or "stop" in one corner of the hole. Its a square hole. Match this corner with the corner of the brush which is shaved off. The brush is not square; it has one corner shaved or smoothed down. This allows the brush to fully extend into the hole. If the brush is inserted any other way, it will not contact the motor and will not run.

DO NOT DO IT. The Hz will destroy the morotr. The transofrmer only converts the voltage. You are better off buying a 220V version.

Oil leaking from the attachment head


The grease leaking out of the KitchenAid mixer can be a common problem. Here is the cause, and how to fix it, and prevent this issue from happening in the future.

The KitchenAid mixers use a Benalene 930-2 grease inside of them. It is a dark, thick grease that can break down and leak out of the mixer. The grease is a non-toxic vegetable based grease, basically it is a food grade grease. Over time, or if you do not use your mixer often the grease can break down, so it would appear that there is oil leaking from the mixer. It is most common for it to leak from the beater shaft (agitator shaft) and from the drip ring.


What you need to do is take the mixer apart, clean out all of the old grease, replace it with about 6 ounces of new food grade grease (http://www.mendingshed.com/kagrease.html). It is also recommended that your replace the o-ring on the center shaft (http://www.mendingshed.com/67500-55.html) and the gearbox gasket (http://www.mendingshed.com/mixergasket.html).

To prevent the grease from breaking down in the future if you do not use the mixer very often, it is recommended that you pull the mixer out and run it for about 2 minutes every 3-4 weeks, this should stop the grease from breaking down as quickly.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

This applies to mixer models, K45, K45SS, KSM75, KSM90, KSM103, KSM110, KSM150, KSM151, KSM152, K5, K5A, K5SS, KSM5, KSM50P, KP50 AND KPM5

You can knead longer than that, but you run the risk of over heating the mixer because at that point the dough is very firm. Your best bet is to knead it by hand.

It sounds like it has been overloaded and the worm gear has been stripped. You will need to take the head apart to confirm this.

Hi Wayne. If you want to keep the mixer, you'll have to buy some earplugs. Newer Kitchenaid mixers are all that noisy. The best thing that I can say about them, is that they've got great paint jobs. If you do keep the mixer, other revelations may occur later when the plastic transmission housing fails and possibly ruins your mixer. These units are poorly manufactured in my opinion. I know because I've been through my own Kitchenaid mixer rebuild. I recommend that you return it and consider an Electrolux DLX. My own solution was to buy a used commercial Hobart mixer and rebuild it. I am once again a happy man!

Good luck! ricardok45

Mixer will not run.


Jeff, odds are that it's the circuit board. I've never heard of a motor burning out after just one use. Go to www.consumeraffairs.com and look under kitchenaid mixer problems. You'll find it less hard to believe that this can happen to a relatively new mixer. Welcome to the land of kitchenaid (Whirlpool Corp.) users. By the way, be prepared to wait at least a month for parts delivery. Things have changed greatly since Hobart sold the kitchenaid line. If you found this solution usefull, please rate it. Good luck. ricardok45
