A model number would help but it sounds like you may have blown the fuse gear. I won't ramble on about how to do it (it's a big job for an ordinary person) until you come up with a model number.

I would definitely say its a gear, I agree with Ross, that we need the model to tell you which gear, if it is a older 4.5 quart or 5 quart mixer you are looking at the worm gear part number W10112253, If it is a 6 quart or professional 5 quart those have all metal gearing so it is usually more than one gear and must be taken apart to correctly diagnose.

However we have a service manual for both mixers and with that as guidance most people can do the repair themselves. It is time consuming though, and you do need to be handy to do the repair. If you can get the model number for me I can give you more information.

The model can be found under the base of the mixer on a label.

When I turn the machine on it makes a buzzing noise, (not loud but it might be like an alarm).


If the mixer is still running and making the buzzing noise one of the electrical contactors is making the noise and should be replaced.
If the mixer is not running and just making a buzzing noise it can be because off single phasing, check the incoming supply to the mixer and make shore you get the right voltage to the motor (test on motor connection terminals)if the voltage to the motor is right the motor might be faulty

My KitchenAid Artisan mixer started hesitating on Speed 10 like it's going really fast and then it slows down for 1-2 sec and then goes back to really fast. I was making whipping cream when it happen


Unplug it and check the carbon brushes under the black screw caps on the sides. BE CAREFUL they only fit properly one way so take note of where the chamfered corner goes. Next check for loose or broken wires under back cover. After that it's going to get tricky.

Kitchen Aid HDPro 5 quart bowl lift mixer is making clunking, rattle type noise when mixing anything heavier than egg whites.


You are probably going to have to remove the top housing and look and listen while it is running. Does it lose drive when it is being noisy? You need to remove the back cover, the silver band with Kitchen Aid on it and that will expose the 4 screws holding the housing on. Remember fingers and tools OUT while it is plugged in or running. I can't be a lot more help to you, we don't have that model in NZ.

My 6qt Kitchenaid stand mixer started making a grinding noise and beater bar keeps stopping. When I put it gently with my finger, it begins turning, only to stop again and make that grinding noise. It is...


They seem to have a plastic gear built in as protection for overloading (prob). When the machine counters to much resistance that gear will strip its teeth causing the machine to not be able to turn, that it what seems to be the grinding problem. If it is not the plastic gear then it another gear that is "stripped(of its "teeth") I hope your problem is not a severe, but if your mixer is "locked up" then at least you found the problem.

It sounds like the brushes are worn out. The sound you hear could be the brush holders making contact with the commutator or it could be a broken brush. Also check gears for wear. Here is a website that has diagrams and parts. Hope this helps.

Clicking noises. Mixer doesn't have enough power to mix.


You have a drive gear that runs off the motor gear. That gear has a problem. It has either broke away from the weld or you have a pin or key sheared.
