Question about KitchenAid KT2651X Epicurean Stand Mixer
I have a KitchenAid KT2651X. I was kneading bread dough and it started smoking and shut off. I unplugged it and turned it to the off/reset possition. A couple weeks later plugged it in and tried to turn it on but nothing happened.

Most likely because you smelled smoke, the motor burned out.
Depending on how old it is, the brushes in the motor may be short.
If you were lucky, if the brushes are replaced, it may work.
The best thing to do is, take it apart.
If the motor itself smells burned you can bet it is.
Just make sure it is unplugged and then remove screws holding it together. Probably are screw on the bottom of it.
If is probably better to replace the motor if you want to keep the machine. That is if it's cheaper than replacing.
Let me know and I will try finding a cheap enough motor replacement.
