Question about Kenmore KMX16E Mixer

1 Answer

Simple Question, but not so simple that I feel comfortable doing it w/o the chance of messing it up. The wire on our small kenmore mixer (w/beaters) is torn and needs to be replaced at the base, right next to the unit. I need to take the unit apart but do not see how to access screws or if the unit is compressed sealed at the joint. Any help?

How to repair the dial on a Kenmore stand up mixer?


The mixer is almost certainly made by Kitchenaid. Kenmore stuff is just a brand name and the items are made by large reputable companies and badged Kenmore.

I found this;

Posted: 09/15/2011 Options I had a similar problem with my Kitchen Aid. The switch is not actually a switch but rather moves a lever that operates two things at the back of the mixer: 1) a simple lifting copper arm that makes a contact to provide power to the system (electrically this mixer is just on or off) and 2) The lever also moves the entire back control board forward and back. There are two long screws at the top of the control board that are spring supported to allow for this movement. There is a governor on the shaft of the motor that pushes against a plate in the center of the control board. The farther the switch moves the control board back the further back on the shaft the governor can go and the faster the machine can go. In my case the screws holding the control board had come loose allowing the governor to go all the way back (high speed) at the first click. Take the back cover off and see if the two top screws need to be adjusted (tighter and the mixer starts slower (or not at all) looser and is starts faster and the last click or two will not make it go any faster. Also check the copper arm to ensure it moves up and down on the first click of the switch properly. Also in my case the two nuts that hold the motor in place had come loose and were in the bottom of the cover so you may want to check for those. Ensure the mixer is unplugged before opening.

Comments:

I agree with E Brian. There is no on-of switch as such, just a governor. In my case, like Jeanne the baker, the switch jumps on all by itself. The solution was quite simple. The little lever is held in place with a screw. If this screw is loose, the lever will not stay in the correct detent, as it is pulled forward by a spring. Tighten the screw, and the problem is solved. I was surprised by how old-tech the mixers are. The controls are electro-mechanical like I remember from school almost 50 years ago. I expect that the new ones are electronic.

KitchenAid Classic Plus Shocking


Sounds like there is a pinch hot wire inside or a wire inside that has worn and is now bare. Disassemble if you are comfortable doing so and check the wiring inside. Also check you power point to make sure that the ground is truely ground. In some countries ground is common and not bound at the meter box which can allow power to feed back to common.

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.

The insulation on the cord has deteriorated. Where can I get it replaced? Every site tells me to take it to Sears, but they won't repair it because I didn't buy it there.


Hi LOSCHR. If you are DITY type person, and feel adventurous, this is a very simple part replacement you can do yourself. I’ll assume your mixer is no longer under warranty.
Be sure you have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download it from the KA website 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 K45SSW select Parts List (1) and then check to see it this matches your mixer model).
Turn to pages 6 & 7, titled: Motor And Control Parts for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the parts. Locate Illus. No. 26 Power Cord, White (Part # 9701015). This is what you need to replace.
Here are five potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com. Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
Finally, here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer.
Between these three websites and their excellent pictures and descriptions and your Parts List manual, you should now be able to completely disassemble and reassemble your mixer, should you decide to go that route.
If you feel replacing your power cord is beyond your capability, then I would seek out a local small appliance repair shop in your area. KA Customer Care can give you names of local KA authorized repair shops in your area, but you can also do an online search to supplement what KA may provide you. Call to explain your circumstances and find out their hourly rate and get an estimate of what they think it would cost to repair your mixer. Also, always obtain three or more estimates – do some comparison shopping.
Good luck and have fun. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

Mixer labors while mixing, noisy motor and inconsistent spinning


Hi CTURCOTT, sorry to hear about your mixer’s malaise. You don’t provide any information about your mixer’s age, model no., degree of usage, etc. so it’s difficult to provide you an exact answer to your question. Instead I’ll try to give you a ball park answer, and see if that will help solve your problem. Since your question appeared under “KitchenAid”, I’ll also assume that you do have a KitchenAid mixer, although all countertop mixers are functionally very similar.
It 'sounds' like you've got some transmission gear issues. It could be as simple as through normal use the gears have shifted slightly in the transmission and the gear teeth are making different contact, hence the grinding noise. The higher the speed, the louder, higher pitched sound you'll get. Alas, the noise may also be indicative of a potential gear failure, similar to my wife’s mixer where the mixer’s increasing noisiness finally ended with a broken tooth on the bevel gear and the mixer 'froze'. This would also account for your inconsistent spinning (agitator rotation).
If you are DITY type person, feel adventurous, and your mixer is not under warranty you can troubleshoot it yourself. Be sure you have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home. Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, and select the file listed under Parts List and then check to verify this matches your mixer model.
Turn to the pages titled: Case, Gearing And Planetary Unit for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the parts. Locate the Worm Gear Bracket & Gear, including the Worm Gear. I suspect this is the weak link in your mixer’s transmission and causing the problems. After clearing all the grease away, check to see if the gear is just loose, exceedingly worn or broken. If it’s worn or broken you can order a replacement part and install it yourself. While you’ve got your mixer this far apart you can check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the on the rest of the gears and other components. Besides needing a replacement gear and grease you might consider replacing the gasket, too. You should use a food-grade grease that you can order online (although I’ve seen automotive bearing grease used too – your call).
The next possibility to check would be with the motor itself, but electric motors are pretty simple mechanisms and generally don't fail. Using the parts list, you can see what needs to be inspected and determine if any motor parts need replacement. (Generally only brushes wear out, but I don’t think that would cause your grinding sound.)
Here are five potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com. You should search for ‘food grade grease’. Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
It can be messy but quite gratifying to diagnose and repair your mixer yourself.
Finally, here’s a link to an excellent site for disassembling/fixing your KA Mixer: http://www.neilcrockett.com/mixer.htm and another link to a site that details the disassembly and replacement of mixer’s grease, which might be helpful, too. http://www.foodonthefood.com/food_on_the_food/2009/04/how-to-repair-a-kitchenaid-mixer-yourself.html
If you feel troubleshooting and repairing is beyond your capability, then I would seek out a local small appliance repair shop in your area. KA Customer Care can give you names of local KA authorized repair shops in your area, but you can also do an online search to supplement what KA may provide you. Call to explain your circumstances and find out their hourly rate and get an estimate of what they think it would cost to repair your mixer.

HOBART HL 600 NOT WORKING.SPEED & TIMMER ALL LIGHTS WORKING BUT NO MOTOR FUNCTIONS.


What'd ya do to that poor little workhorse? You need a Hobart service guy. The power is not getting from the switch to the motor. Could be a disconnected wire (on the simple side), could be the start capacitor. Did you turn the timer on? If you don't the mixer won't run! That is a 220V, don't stick your hands in there when it is plugged in.

Dough riding up dough hoook


Chances are you have a 3 PH motor and the motor is running backwards. Take the plug and unscrew the 3 or 4 screws. look at the wiring and change any two of the wires. DO NOT CHANGE THE GROUND WIRE! That one is usually green, but can be noticed by the curved tip as well.
If you do not have a three phase mixer, chances are your dough is too thick or too wet.
