If you raise the mixer arm you will expose a reset button that may have been tripped.

Have a PVi8B mixer that has stopped working suddenly. Doesn't do anything when you flip the switch to "ON" are there fuses that could be the problem?


Does the blue power light come on when you switch it on? There is a 5amp fuse in the supply cable.Open the wall socket plug of the supply cable (unplugged of coarse) and check fuse and connections.With a multimeter check continuity of the three wires from the plug to the other end of the cable.If this is all good then you have an internal fault.There are fuses internally as well but this should be refered to a qualified technician.

Power switch turns on by itself


Bring the mixer to a place that services these appliances. They will have to replace the switch. This is common on appliances.

My kitchaid stopped working. Is it worth getting


CARREN90 – You don’t provide a lot of information, which would be helpful in providing a rational answer to your question. What model KA mixer do you own? How old is it? Is it under warranty? What do you mean by stopped working? Do you mean the motor runs but the agitator doesn’t turn or the motor doesn’t run at all? The more information provided, the better the answer I can offer. That being said, if your KA mixer is less than 20 years old, it might be worth repairing.
First, there are only two reasons it stopped working - an electrical problem; the electric motor or one of it’s components has failed so it is not getting electricity (power) to run; or a mechanical problem – one (or more) of the transmission gears has failed, and although the electric motor may still run, the agitator is not turning in the bowl.

Either problem is fixable; depending on how intimately you wish to get acquainted with the internal workings of your mixer. 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. Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number select a file under Parts List and then check to see it this matches your mixer model. You can check the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the parts. It can be messy but gratifying. Once apart you can check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the gears, etc.
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 provide 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 (again the more information you provide the better their answers will be to you) 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. If the estimates exceed the original purchase price, you might consider purchasing a new one, but that is a decision only you can make. Hey, Christmas is just around the corner!!

Good luck, I hope this helps! Howard – Burke, VA

Mixer revs, then shuts off, will not reset


your kitchen aid has a little device inside called the hall effect sensor. These often come dislodged or just stop functioning. If you are mechanically inclined you can replace this yourself.

KITCHEN AID MIXER WILL NOT WORK


If you have had the brushes out (under the big screws on each side) verify the cut corner of the brushes are oriented properly. Look inside the hole with a flash light and you will see where the cut corner needs to be.
