I don't have a manual and the mixer sounded like it needed to be oiled, i removed the screw on the side and took out the motor brush to see if I was to put oil in there, I put the brush back in and now it doesn't run at all. I tried to take the brush out of the other side and only the spring came out so I tried the side I previously took out and only the spring would come there. It was running before I did all that. So now what can I do. I live out in the boone docks and know where or who to take it to. Hope you can help and thanks in advance. Lynn Kelley

Check the carbon brushes under the black side screw caps. Be aware that the brushes only fit ONE way, they are keyed on one corner. Check for broken wires under the back cover on the speed control plate.
The K45SS is very similar to the 5-qt. tilt-head Artisan Stand Mixer. You need to adjust the mixer speeds. Obtain a copy of the K45SS Repair Part List from Kitchenaid.com. Remove the screw holding the End Cover and locate the three screws from the Control Plate. All three (2 top left and right, and 1 bottom) must all be adjusted. 1. Loosen the lock nuts enough & Turn the 2 top screws clockwise until they cannot be turned anymore. Leave the bottom screw alone for now. 2. Use a dab of white paint or paper whiteout to mark the positions of the Phillips screws. 3. Plug in your mixer and Set the speed selector to "Stir". 4. Turn each top screw One full turn couterclockwise (alternating between Left and Right) Keep making one full turn at the time (for both left and right) until the motor starts running. 5. Put your hand near the Agitator shaft and allow it to brush your finger slightly. Use your watch or clock and start counting the number of times the shaft touches your finger in 60 seconds. The correct count should be 60 RPM (Rounds Per Minute). If it is less or more than 60, give each screw 1/4 turn counterclockwise or clockwise and start counting again. Now tighten both lock nuts. 6. Set the speed selector to "6" and turn the bottom screw either clockwise or counterclockwise to achieve a speed of 180 RPM.
For your reference, the planetary RPM's for the 5-qt. tilt-head Artisan Stand Mixer are as follows: Stir speed - 60 Speed 2 - 95 Speed 4 - 135 Speed 6 - 180 Speed 8 - 225 Speed 10 - 280
The brushes aren't contacting the commutator on the motor. Remove both screws, insert a small phillips screwdriver into the exposed springs and simply push down until you feel resistance. That should fix it.
hi mary. there is a phillips head screw in the rear of the mixer head. if you turn the mixer around you will see it in the band. remove that screw then remove the other four screws that hold the top on the motor cover. good luck with it.
if the oil is black or dark green this is the transmission grease.
There is plenty in the case don't worry. You may have a cracked
transmission case or a bad gassket. I think the most likely thing is a
loose screw or two. Take the trim band off, 1 screw. Then take the 4
screws that hold the cover on. You can now lift the top and take a look
for the sourse of the leak
