Question about Food Mixers

Model kv25g8xmc5 mixer. Can the brushes be replaced on this motor? Seems like this will require taking the motor apart and it won't budge despite removal of the 2 long housing screws.

If the brushes can be replaced there will be a black plug in the housing above each brush
use a flat bladed screw driver to undo those plugs
if no plugs , take it to an appliance shop and see how it is done

Carbon brush stuck in kitchen aid mixer


What model number is your machine? Try turning it on it's side and shake a little, take a very small screwdriver and grind away to crack the brush and shake it out. Otherwise it is a full tear down to take the brush holder out. Hope this helps if not get back to us for help

My machine simply won't turn on .

Remove both Brush Holder Caps (34), one on each side of the
Gearcase Motor Housing (1). The Carbon Brushes (29) are keyed
and designed to go into the Housing but only one way. Both must
make contact with the Motor Coils in order for the Motor to turn.
If they are improperly inserted or too worn out (replacement is
required) then your mixer will not run.

Won't turn on


Get a copy of the Repair Part List for your model at Kitchenaid.com
On each side of the Motor Housing(1) is the large black Brush Motor
Cap(23). Each Carbon Brush(19) is keyed (one corner is not square)
and is designed to go into the Motor Housing slot but only one way.
Each Carbon Brush must make contact with the Motor Coils. The
motor will not turn if one or both does not come in contact with the coils.
If the brushes are too worn out, of course they won't touch the coils
neither and your motor will not run. You can purchased new brushes
on Ebay if they need to be replaced.

Was just givin a hobart a200 was in a school warehouse for at least 1o years attach.shaft and seals replaced by hobart 6 month before put in storage runs great smooth no gear noise BUT fromm sitting bowel...


Ogrin56,

The problem is in your lift handle cams, you need to take the pedistal apart and clean and grease all the cams. I take them apart and wire brush them and use white lithium grease to keep them from freezing up.

Won't turn on after first use. 1801 220 watts hand mixer looks like 2562 250 watt mixer


It seems that the mixer is overheating and tripping the thermostat thus preventing further use. I would recommend a thorough overhaul. You will need to carefully inspect all the components, particularly Items the brush assemblies, and the commutator portion of the armature (where the brushes touch the armature), and everywhere else in the motor compartment. Any parts exposed to oil will need to be degreased and dried before reassembly. When you reassemble your mixer, the brushes can only be installed one way. Make sure the brush's concave contact face is resting completely on the armature. If it is turned it 90 degrees too much, it wont' seat properly and the motor will not get any juice.
While your mixer's apart you should check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the gears, etc. You may find more things that need fixing, adjustment or replacement.
You may find it easier to replace the brushes than degreasing them. I recommend using a food-grade grease that you can order online (although I've seen automotive bearing grease used too - your call). If you feel this is beyond your capabilities and will be too difficult to do by yourself you can take your mixer to a local small appliance repair shop and have them troubleshoot and fix your mixer.

Oil or grease leak


Hi SANDYCRAB155. I can sympathize with your reluctance to use your mixer, but depending on the amount of oil you found and where it was coming out of you mixer, you shouldn’t worry too much and after cleaning up the grease with soap and water, it should operate normally.
The internal gears of your mixer are factory packed with enough grease to last a 'lifetime' whatever that means? Depending on your mixer’s age and degree of usage; all these factors contribute to cause the oil come out of suspension in the grease and seep beyond the gasket and out of your mixer.
Where did the oil come from? You said it was ‘moved upside down’ (not recommended for your next move) so did the oil come out of the brush cover cap holes (on either side of the mixer head) or the motor vents? If that’s where it originated, then you'll have to clean the brushes (and possibly the motor armature) before starting the mixer again. The only way to check if that occurred though is to actually take your mixer apart and look inside.
If you are DITY type person, and feel adventurous, and your mixer is not under warranty you can troubleshoot it yourself. Be sure you have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download it from the KA website http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> and enter the 6 character model number and select a file listed under Parts List (check to see the illustrations match your mixer model). Turn to the pages titled ‘Motor And Control Parts’. You will need to carefully inspect all the components, particularly Items the brush assemblies, and the commutator portion of the armature (where the brushes touch the armature), and anywhere else in the motor compartment that may have been contaminated with oil. Oil is good for lubricating gears, but bad for electric motors.
Any parts exposed to oil will need to be degreased and dried before reassembly. I use GUNK degreaser and blow-dry the parts with a hair dryer or toaster oven (N.B. Be extremely careful when doing this).
When you reassemble your mixer, the brushes must only be installed one way. Make sure the brush’s concave contact face is resting completely on the armature. If it is turned it 90 degrees too much, it won’t' seat properly and the motor will not get any juice.
While your mixer’s apart is a good time to check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the gears, etc. You may find more things that need fixing, adjustment or replacement. You don’t mention how old your mixer is, but if it’s over five or six years, it probably wouldn’t hurt to re-grease the mixer’s transmission.
You may find it easier to replace the brushes than degreasing them. Here are five potential online vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com (for grease). You should search for ‘food grade grease’ online (although I’ve seen automotive bearing grease used too – your call). Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do some comparison shopping.
Here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer for your future reference, too.
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.
Good luck! I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

My k5ss mixer will not start ,I remove the 2 screw on each side of the head, i put them back and now it wont start


Hi DENAULTR, I hate it when that happens. Those two “screws”’ are your mixer’s electric motor brushes. The slotted black threaded plastic parts are just the Brush Holder Caps and are the protective covers to the brush holder assemblies. They allow access to the brushes when they need to be replaced without having to take the whole mixer head apart.
From what you’ve described, I suspect that one or both of the brushes is (are) not seated properly when you reinstalled them. The brushes need to be installed so that they both seat correctly on the armature's commutator or you won’t get any ‘juice’ to the motor. See the illustration below:
9218969.jpg
I'd suggest removing them again and making sure the concave contact face rests completely on the armature’s commutator. If you've turned it 90 degrees too much, it won’t seat properly and you get no power to the motor.
It would also be helpful to have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case use KSM50P (Your K5SS mixer falls within this manual), and select the first file KSM50P.pdf (438.31 KB) listed under Parts List (4) and then check to verify this matches your mixer model.
Turn to pages 6 & 7, titled “Motor And Control Parts”, which provides an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer’s electrical components, along with all the part names and numbers. Locate Illus No 47, Brush holder assembly that includes Illus. Nos. #28, 32, 33, 34, & 46, and Illus. No. 29, Brush & Spring assembly respectively.
The Parts List illustration along with the picture above regarding the orientation of the brushes should get your mixer powered back up and operational. Good luck! I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

KitchenAid K45SS will not run


If you know what the brushes in the motor are then you should get some from kitchen aid or an appliance parts store. If you dont know what brushes for the motor are then find a local repair shop that will fix it for you. All the best.
