How to reset the fuse if there is one?


Have an electrician test the socket that the mixer plugs in to and see if there is electricity there. You might also plug in something else to test it yourself. If the socket its good, your mixer is "broken".
If the socket is dead, you need to reset the breaker, or replace it.
God bless your efforts.

HOW TO TEST A PHASE CONTROL BOARD ON KITCHENAID MIXER


I am sorry to say but only with a new one, about 30 bucks and five minutes of work, but if your mixer has any speeds working except only high (only high means it is the phase control board) then it is more likely the speed control board is bad rather than the phase board. Can you send is more info on what happened when the mixer started or stopped working. We can be of more help with more info

Has power on but doesn't run


If you took your brushes out to check them then your mixer will not work if you put the brushes back in the wrong way even if you fixed the original problem. the beveled side of the brushes must go back into the brush holders a very specific way/direction because the brush holders have a pinched corner on one edge that allows the brush to slide past and to make contact with the armature. if you are sure that the brushes are in the correct way lets proceed. (If not get a flashlight and look inside the brush holder for the pinched down corner and reinsert the brushes the right way)
fist the basics, I know it seems dumb to even think this but ... well you know.
1. check the outlet you are using for the mixer to see that it has power.
2. The outlet is hot, look at the rar top of the mixer you will see a small "Phillips Head" screw. take it out. and lift up and out at the same time to remove the the rear motor head cover.
3. take a moment and look at what you see. now look at the cord that you use to plug the mixer into the outlet. follow it back into the mixer head and you will see three wires. Green = ground and it is attached to the mixer frame with a #3 Phillips screw, leave it alone. the other two wires, one black and one white attach to what is called the speed control board by means of two flag style connectors. Are they attached? Or have they or either one of them come off?
4. if they are attached to the flag terminals, then get a multi meter and check for power between the terminals. the black test probe goes to the black lead on the mixer terminal, your red test lead goes on the white flag terminal attached to the mixer. personally i would disconnect these two leads before I tested them to avoid any safety issues with the mixer. If ther is no power to the terminals when you p,lug the cord into the wall then the cord is bad. Order one and replace it. you could also test the cord another way by checking for ohms resistance and you won't have to plug the cord in at all. Ohms testing is safer.
5, if the cord is good then the next thing to look at is the phase control board. that is a small computer style board above and behind the big black and copper board with 3 screws in it. It has 4 wires coming out of it. You probably have no real way to test this unless you are familiar with electrical :Bread Board" circuitry. i usually just carry a new one with me and replace it. It's faster.
6. If the system still does not start I remove speed control plate/board,The black and copper one. (there is a spring attached that will have to be removed, if you let it snap back into the machine you will have to dismantle the entire motor head to dig it out, so hook a cloth under it's clip that will hold it and keep it from snapping back into the mixer). Now install a new spped plate and test again. if you still have no power there are only two electric problems left one is the armature and the stator which are the two components that make up the motor, but it will require a complete tear down to replace. I have never had a motor go out. the problem is usually the cord or brushes. Let me know if this helped. If not we can post a location to the service manual and parts list for your mixer.

How do you test a 1kvolt ceramic capacitor?


Hi Mixers,
You can test a 1kvolt ceramic capacitor;
a) using a capacimetre; replacing with other one of the same type; connecting it in a 12V oscillator circuit with a LED as output wich shall blink in a frequency determined by the capacitance, says, fast with low capacitance and slow with high capacitance. Normally ceramic HV capacitors are of small capacitance for use in high switching circuits or as a protection of a power switching transistors in modern power supplies

My mixer was working fine until yesterday. When I turn on the lowest turn speed it'll start off slow for about two seconds then start to climb up to the highest speed without me touching the handle!


There is a problem with one of the speed control systems. It could be a control plate, a phase board or governor assembly. This is a common problem. Without actually seeing the machine in action and testing it myself I can't tell you exactly where the problem lies or which parts to repair. I would recommend taking it to an authorized repair center to have it looked at or testing the parts yourself if you have the knowledge to do so.

Hobart A 200 Mixer


There are four possibilities to look at here. Assuming your mixer has a normal capacitor start motor (older a200's used a different style motor), possibilities are, in order of likelihood:

Motor start capacitor
Start switch (electronic or mechanical)
Burned wiring
Motor start winding

The start capacitor is located at the rear of the mixer. Remove the rear cover (4 screws) and pull the cover towards you. Disconnect one wire from the capacitor and test with any multimeter.

The start switch, if electronic, is able to be tested, but not very easily. Once you've eliminated the other possibilities, it's time to replace the (electronic) start switch. If the motor has a mechanical start switch, it's easy to test: Remove the two wires at the rear of the motor and test for continuity with the motor stationary. A multimeter should show near zero ohms for a good mechanical start switch.

Burned wiring should be easy to spot with some careful inspection around the motor, capacitor, and start switch.

Start winding: Look closely at the stator (stationary part of the motor). If some of the copper windings look significantly darker in color than the others, it's likely the start windings were overheated (the start windings are the thinner copper wires - if you look closely, approximately half of the wires are thinner than the other half). Look for a wiring diagram behind the power switch and determine which wires leading to the start switch and/or capacitor are for the start windings and test for continuity across the start winding. You should read a fairly small value such as 5 - 15 ohms. Values significantly outside this range could indicate a partially open or partially shorted start winding.

Have a A200 Mixer, when turned on, you have to spin it by hand then it runs fine. Whats wrong


The answer is clearly in the starting circuit which doesn't have too many parts, but depends on the type of starting circuit your mixer uses (electronic or mechanical start switch). I'm assuming your mixer isn't very old, as the old units used brushed motors which did not have starting circuits.

The parts of the starting circuit are the motor start winding, the start capacitor and the start switch (probably electronic in your case which is a small silver box with four wire terminals on it). The capacitor should be tested with a multimeter after verifying it's not holding a charge (check with multimeter set to DC Volts, mixer unplugged, should read zero volts).
Start winding should be tested with the meter to measure ohms. Locate the wires leading to the motor (hopefully only three wires) and you should get a reading for all three combinations of measurements (wire 1-to-wire 2, 2-to-3, 1-to-3) if meter indicates open on any of these, motor stator is bad(this is pretty rare and quite expensive).
Electronic start switches are not very simple to test, but if the capacitor and motor test out OK with the meter, and all the wiring is intact (look closely for loose wires, burned wires, poorly crimped terminals, etc.) then it must be the start switch.

K5ss no power tested cord-ok inside all wires (red blue etc.) test ok. white on lower right hand side shows nothing on meter.


It sounds like you need a new speed control phase board:

Speed Control Unit test?


Take off the back cover. there should be 2 screws on top of a piece of metal, 1 on bottom. Start on turn. it should go about 1x a second. Turn the top scrws. Then go to 6. it should be 3x a second. Use the bottom screw to adjust that. When turn and 6 are corrrect, all other sppeeds are right. There might be something else in between the back cover and the 3 screw panel.

Biggt----can you help? A200


What is your symptom?

Basically, you need to check both start and run windings for continuity.

If you have a mechanical start switch, (likely), you can simply ohm out at the power cord end, hot to neutral, power switch on, and check for continuity. Then manually open the contacts on the start switch and look for a small increase in your ohms. I don't know the exact numbers, but I would expect under 10 ohms.
