You need to remove the motor and find the heat protection fuse on the side of the windings. The fuse is rated at 140 and has a red tip. You might be able to get one from Radio Shack but Viking sells them for $3. Solder into place and take care not to overheat while doing so.

    Would this heat protection fuse possibly be inside of a white sleeve about 1-1/2 inches long?

    Ok, so I have the SAME problem. I called Viking and since they no longer "do small appliances" they referred me to a repair place that offered to fix it for a minimum of $200, which is not an option. So now I am looking for this fuse on the side of the windings??? The top of the mixer is off and the panel is opened. If anyone could give me a clue as to what I am looking for, I would be eternally grateful! Thanks

I have a Viking VSM700 mixer that worked one day and was put under the counter. Next time it was brought out, it did nothing. No smoke, no noice, nothing. Any ideas?


On mine, one of the two brushes was NOT advancing to hit the motor armature as it wore. Had no power. Had to take unit apart to get to motor. We spread the metal brush holder slightly with a screwdriver and allowed the brush to slide so it can make contact with the armature. Motor now works fine. Shame on the Viking Company for dropping the ball on this product!!!

Motor not spinning in hobart 60 qt mixer


Check manually after disconnecting the motor if this is jammed. If so the motor must be reset as the bearings are faulty and so the rotor seems to get stuck with the coil core.
Also if there is high drain with heat it is possible that the coils are faulty and might need an insulation failure test.

The mixer simply doesn't turn on. Worked fine yesterday. Today it seems like it's just dead


HI.Let me jusk ask if yiou also tried to connet to another socket.Let me just clarify that the motor itself did not work /rotate as well.Prior to that situation,have you tried to mix more than what is the capacity of your mixer.If possible motor was overworked/that's why its coil was burnt.There. are possibilities then. First might be that the mixers terminals inside will no longer engaged properly that's why it opens the circuit.Second the motor isn't working because the rotor and armatures coil was burnt because it runs beyond its maximum wattage capacity that's why it draws much current beyond the rotors coil capacity.Did you mixed something heavy.the motor works heavier the last time you used the unit?

Hi,
The best you can do is to send it right back and make them fix it right... there is nothing you can do with that motor to make it run better..

Kitchenaid pro stand mixer will not turn on I has been sitting for 3 months without being used. It is a 475 watt bowl lift 6 qt mixer. about 3 years old.


How comfortable are you with electrical parts? With the mixer UNPLUGGED and the switch ON measure resistance between the (flat) plug pins. If it's infinite (no meter movement) which is to be expected, there is an open circuit. The switch could be open or the wire to the switch could be disconnected (improbable) or the motor could be burned out and open (not very probable).

Maybe you could take the switch to a shop and have it tested.

This is not really a solution, just step 1.
