Question about KitchenAid KSM5PS Heavy Duty Stand Mixer
Hi, I removed the large plasting screws on both sides of my Kitchen aid KSM5PSGR mixer and removed the magnet looking ractangular rods.
I noticed that there is a notch on one edge.
Can I re-assemble them in any oritntation or is there a certain way they need to go in?
This was a simple fix for me once I finally found the answer. When you look inside the hole that the brushes slide into, one corner of the square has a notch in it. Slide the angled piece of the brush over the notch, and the mixer works fine. Assuming that that was the problem.

Yes, the brushes did have a notch on one side but the armature hole was square and it was not apparent as to the orientation until I looked deep into the hole (I needed a flashlight) and saw a notch at the bottom of the hole in the armature.
Thanks for the help.

The rectangular rods are the motor brushes. They will have a rounded shape to them and as long as you have the rounded edge match the rounded shape of the armature it does not matter unless there is some kind of groove to force orientation of the brushes.
