Question about KitchenAid KP2671 Professional 6 Series Stand Mixer
It usually stops part way through kneeding bread dough. Sometimes it does not start at all, but a few minutes later it will be working fine.
I'd approach this like any electrical problem. Start at the outlet,verify it's working right & grounded properly. Then move to the unit. Assuming the outlet is fine, you'll need a multi-meter & insulated gloves to do the rest. Do not attempt this unless you understand the risk involved,includes possible electrocution!! Put the insulated gloves on for this & don't let anyone touch you during this,also never touch metal with your bare skin while doing this either.With it plugged in, remove whatever is needed to get to the switch. Make sure there's no attachments connected too. Then set the meter to a/c volts. Ground the black lead to the chassis of the mixer,not the outlet, then take the red lead & check for power to the switch. Should be only one wire "hot" & that should read 110-120v or 220-240v if it's a commercial mixer. If that checks out, keep the lead grounded & move to the other wires that have no electricity going to them with the switch off. Turn the switch on & check for power to the other wires while trying different speeds. All should get power at some point while testing. The voltage will be less than the main voltage in,because it steps the voltage down for slower speeds. You may have to repeat these steps until it acts up again. If the switch never malfunctions, then the problem is either a built in circuit breaker that's weak, bad brushes for the motor, or a faulty capasitor (on commercial units). I didn't include wire colors & such because this a general procedure for diagnosing anything running on a/c current. I'm not personally familiar with that model, however these are the same steps an electrician or a repair guy is going to take. Hope this helps & if you're the least bit leary about messing with electricity,don't, call a repair service.
