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
It sounds like your motor is okay if it is trying to drive the unit, it may be that one of the gears inside the unit have broken or chipped. this can cause a lot of damage quickly and should be disassembled right away and cleaned. another source of this noise could be that your motor fan blade which is attached to the motor is hitting the armature field winding. you could easily detect this if you have the back panel off and turn your mixer on This motor is not a Hobart motor simply because its made by Whirlpool and Hobarts motors for smaller mixers are mostly no longer available as where the whirlpool motor is still available.hope this helps
Leaking of oil in a stand mixer is not necessarily indicative of a large problem.
Kitchenaid stand mixers are overpacked with oil to last the lifetime of the motor. If the motor sits idle for some time (is not used), the oil may begin to drip from the gears and settle. Oil leakage may primarily be seen from around the beater shaft or planetary action.
A stand mixer can lose up to a 1/4 cup of oil before it needs to be serviced.
It is recommended to run the mixer on speed 10 for 2 minutes in order to redistribute oil back into the motor. In order to prevent future occurences, this is recommended to be done every 3 weeks if mixer is not being used.
hi mary. there is a phillips head screw in the rear of the mixer head. if you turn the mixer around you will see it in the band. remove that screw then remove the other four screws that hold the top on the motor cover. good luck with it.
MOTOR IS BURNED OUT nothing you can do this was the problem with this mixer for years , then it was the worm gear problem now we are back to the motor poping . you cannot get the motor for a self install and if you send it to kitchenaid it will cost you mre than a new mixer on sale ........... look up reviews on the net , look for the ones that have had the mixer for a while . you will see your problem is common . good luck to you
