Question about KitchenAid KSM90 Ultra Power Series Stand Mixer
Hi REDEN828, yes, you are correct. When you reinstalled them you either misaligned one or both brushes so they are not seated properly on the motor's armature. See the illustration below:
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, the brush 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 from the KA website at: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case use KSM50P (Your KSM90P mixer falls within this manual), and select the last file KSM90PSWW0.pdf (354.08 KB) listed under Parts List (16) 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 parts. Locate Illus No 32, Brush holder assembly that includes #18, 21, 22, 23, & 31 which is the brush holder insert, and Illus. No. 19, brush & Spring assembly respectively. The 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
