Question about KitchenAid K45SS Classic Stand Mixer

Classic K45SS STOPPED RUNNING

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

Kenwood mixer stopped working


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.

Speeds don't increase after 6


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

I took the side screw out now it won't turn on.


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.
Good luck!

Adding oil to the k45ss


Hi. Goto www.kitchenaid.com enter your model # into the search window, look for the parts catalog for your mixer. Download this file. It will come in handy if you ever need to order parts, and will give you an overview of your mixer.

Goto www.mendingshed.com and locate the free Kitchenaid Service manual. This manual contains all of the info needed to service your mixer.

Finally, your mixer uses grease for lubrication. When you see oil dripping, it means that your mixer needs to be re-greased as the oil is separating from the grease base. I recommend Chevron FM ALC EP-2, this is a food grade grease that is non-toxic should you get some of it's oil in the mixing bowl at a later date. Remove the old oil and grease remnants from the mixer, including the planetary unit. You can remove the planetary by tapping the tapered pin out of the shaft. Clean and re-grease. After you've completed these tasks, run the mixer for a couple of minutes every week to keep the oil in suspension. This will extend the life of the grease.

Good luck! If this solution has assisted you, please rate it. ricardok45.

The repair manual says that the mixer can make this grinding sound at slow speed, like stir or 2. This is normal, especially until it warms up. This is the sound of the gears turning at slow speed.

How do I add oil to my kitchenaid stand mixer?


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
