Does the mixer not turn on at all or the beater just wont turn? Depending on the mixer it could have a fuse that shuts the mixer off if over heated, but it could also be gears.

If you can get the model off of the bottom of the mixer, and then give a bit more information on how it is not working then we can help you with the repair.

Also yes, the butter would most likely be the reason the mixer stopped working. You are supposed to use butter that is soft & at room temperature. I find that if you are in a rush or forgot to soften the butter you can cut it up into small slices and then cream it in your mixer and it doesn't strip the gears.

K45 kitchenaid mixer quits working under load? When beating egg whites it works great but try to cream butter and the beater stops.


It will be a broken or missing pin through a gear or the planetary or something wrong with the fuse gear. It should be easy enough to find but you will need to split the gearbox cases to check.

I can hear the motor running, but the attachment does not move.


Sounds like what happened to my wife's mixer. There is one nylon gear in the drive assembly that is designed to break if too much load is put on the mixer. Like what can happen with dough or butter that is too hard/frozen. That is designed to save rest of the mixer. Sounds like you need to replace the KitchenAid Mixer Worm Drive and Pinion Gear Assembly. In our case, it was not the nylon gear that broke, but a small pin that is this gear assembly. By getting the assembly & not just the nylon gear, you cover more of your bases. I found a video on line that walks you through replacing the part. I also bought the part online. The assembly part, including shipping cost me $12.95.

Hope this helps.

Turntable does not turn. Motor runs. Beaters work.


I have the same one, and the turn table has never turned on it's own. from looking at the bottom of the stand, i think the mixers are supposed to turn the bowl, so i just give it a little turn, and the mixers kinda take care of the rest. BTW, i got 2 sets of beaters with mine and i dont know what the second set is for, do you? contact me at rawemo@hotmail.com

Mixer not creaming butter and sugar...


make sure you are using the right attachment. usually for batters you want to use the flat beater. not the dough hook. the flat beater looks like a triangle with lines through the center. and make sure you are using the correct speed on the mixer. start out at stir and then go up to no more than half speed. these mixers take a little longer to incorperate batters but they do a very good job at it. if the batter is thin enough you can try using the wisk as well. but only if it is a thin batter.
