Hi, my name is John I will do my best to assist you.

Knowing the model number of your mixer will be helpful in trying to locate an assembly diagram, and part info to better assist you. Please provide the model number.

General Suggestions

As you may be aware your mixer has a safety feature that disables functionality if the unit gets to hot due to overloading. If this may be a factor and you haven't already, unplug the mixer and let it rest for at least an hour and then try it again.

You mentioned that the motor is working but the attachments don't turn. Some mixers are equipped with an mechanism that will only allow drive from the motor to engage if the attachments are firmly locked in place. The problem may be here.

If the unit was overloaded, it is possible that the plastic gears were damaged. Unless I can locate an assembly diagram of your specific model I will be unable to give you more detailed information.

If you feel comfortable with a trial and error approach you could carefully disassemble the mixer for closer examination. Most mixers housings are held together by 4 or so screws. Be careful when separating the housing halves as some parts may disconnect, or detach. If you open it slowly and pay close attention you should be able to see how things are assembled, and understand how they are going to come apart. Make notes for reassembly.

If you find that the gears are damaged, you will most likely have to contact the manufacturer to locate replacement parts.

If you have more specific questions please post comments to this thread and I will endeavor to monitor new activity and respond as soon as possible. I recommend that you "bookmark", or "add to favorites" this page for your convenience.

Very hard to find service manuals for Braun applicances unless you are part of their service network. Generally the gears should be separate from the motor. The challenge will be to get to the motor and gear without breaking the casing. It might help to provide a model number. My experience is get a new unit for around $60-70 eg. Sunbeam.

I am not marketing for the Sunbeam but they are a value for money. Make sure you get the 650 watt unit if you do heavy work.

My braun mixer seems to be powering out when I am mixing dough with the hook. It also has a little sound that it makes when it is working harder. It never used to make this sound.


This sounds to me like the brushes in the motor need to be replaced. You may want to call an area shop which rebuilds electric motors and see if they have a replacement for you. They're not very expensive and fairly easy to replace.

I hope this helps and I hope you have a wonderful holiday season!

Hi JBOYLES3, from the symptoms you describe, it’s likely the Speed Control Lever has become jammed internally. You should be able to inspect this yourself and determine if that’s happened with just a little effort.
Be sure to have your Parts List Manual on hand, too. If you don’t have the original you can easily download a PDF version from the KA website: (http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home).
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case use K45SSW, and select the first file K45SSWH0.pdf (341.41 KB) listed under Parts List (1) and then check to verify this matches your mixer model.
Turn to pages 6 & 7, titled ‘Motor And Control Part’. Locate Illus. Nos. 1, 2, 3 & 4, Pivot screw, Spring washer, Speed control assembly lever, and Control plate spring, respectively. Carefully inspect these parts to see if they have not come loose, particularly the pivot screw and spring washer. Or quite possibly Illus. No. 5, Speed Link & Cam is jamming against some other mixer component and ‘locking’ your speed control lever. I would concentrate my attention in this area.
If a part has broken and needs to be replaced, here are five potential online vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com. Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
It can be messy but quite gratifying to diagnose and repair your mixer yourself.
Finally, here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer. The mixers displayed in the links are different KA models, but the principles are the same.
Between these three websites and their excellent pictures and descriptions and your Parts List manual, you should now be able to completely disassemble and reassemble your mixer, should you decide to go that route.
If you feel troubleshooting and repairing is beyond your capability, then I would seek out a local small appliance repair shop in your area. KA Customer Care can give you names of local KA authorized repair shops in your area, but you can also do an online search to supplement what KA may provide you. Call to explain your circumstances and find out their hourly rate and get an estimate of what they think it would cost to repair your mixer. Also, always obtain three or more estimates – do some comparison shopping. Good luck and have fun. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA.

I was given a used KSM90 mixer. The machine looks to be in good condition except for a slightly flattened spot on the rear top of the head housing as if it has been dropped. On the first and second speed...


Hi MPCMC, Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! By the symptoms you describe, you may have had some internal movement of the gears when the mixer was dropped. You can be pretty sure that any fall hard enough to dent the mixer’s head will also jostle the internal components and possibly ‘redistribute’ the lubrication grease. I also don’t believe KA mixers were meant to be inverted; it’s just not the way they were meant to be used. J
It’s also possible that one (or more) of the gears could be failing, but the intermittent/inconsistent grinding would lead me to think it’s more of a gear alignment issue than a gear failure (if a gear were going bad, you’d get the grinding noise at all speed levels not just the first two speeds) so…the only way to truly find out what’s happening inside your mixer is to take it apart. The good news is that you can troubleshoot the mixer yourself quite easily (OK, maybe a little effort) if you are a DITY type person, feel adventurous, and your mixer is not under warranty.
(Allow me to digress just a bit. Your Prof 6 Qt mixer is noisier because KA constructed this transmission with all metal gears. Earlier KA models had a nylon ‘fail-safe’ gear designed to strip when the mixer was overloaded so the mixer would go up in smoke.)
Before you start to take apart your mixer, you want to have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case use KSM90P (Your KSM90P mixer falls within this manual), and select the last file KSM90PSWW0.pdf (354.08 KB) listed under Parts List (16) and then check to verify this matches your mixer model.
Turn to pages 4 & 5, titled: “Case, Gearing And Planetary Unit” for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the parts. Locate Illus. No. 36, Worm Gear Bracket & Gear, including Illus. No. 7, Worm Gear, and Illus. No. 13, Attachment Hub Bevel Gear. I would focus my attention on these components that may be causing the problems. After clearing all the grease away, you’ll probably find that a gear is out of alignment or been damaged.
You can order a replacement gear and install it yourself. While you’ve got your mixer this far apart you can check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the on the gears and other components. Besides a replacement gear, and grease you might consider replacing the gasket, and “O”-ring too (If you’ve noticed oil leaking). You should use a food-grade grease that you can order online (although I’ve seen automotive bearing grease used too – your call). Do not try to reuse any original grease as this may be filled with debris from a damaged gear.
Here are five potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com. You should search for ‘food grade grease’. Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.

Oil leaked from Kenmore mixer- model mumber 201


This kind of unit are lubricated with grase paste. If the unit stays inactive for a long time, or if the motor and gears are overheating the grease paste gets melted into thin oil, and that will cause the leak.
The oil leak is usually coming from the gear box inside the appliance.
To fix the problem the unit must be taken apart, and cleaned. After this step, there is need to spread again the grease, using special foodsafe grease paste.
Disassemblying the gear box is not that easy, you will need previous experience and a gear puller to do the job properly and safely.
This appliances are also held with security screws to prevent the users from taking apart the unit, and can only be disassembled using a Security screwdriver tip.

The grease can be purchased here, check at the bottom of the page: Kenwood chef food mixer Grease.

Broken mixer switch


To disassemble: Pull the rear cover off by prying on the bottom edge. It snaps in and hinges at the top. Remove the small oval cover on the front by prying, then remove the phillips screw. Remove the protective slider off the bottom. The 2 case halves then need to be separated by prying.

My daughter dropped it (again) and speeds 2 and 3 failed to work so I disassembled it and found a broken center terminal on the power transistor. I saw a fine crack so I soldered it. I also added much needed strain relief to the heat sink. It works fine now. This is a poor design. The power device has a heat sink attached and there is no strain relief so the transistor can move back and forth at least 3/8". For a tool that sees a lot of vibration and shock, this heat sink should be tie strapped or have hot melt glue to prevent movement. Gary
