I had the same problem with the two black bolts on the side of the kitchenaid mixer. When I removed them, the mixer stopped working. The solution was to replace them in exactly the same way - meaning there is only one way that the square black pegs at the end of the springs go in. If they are turned 90 degrees or more, they will not work. Notice that one corner of the square pegs is cut at an angle. If you look carefully in the hole from which they came(with a flashlight), you can see that one corner has a small intrusion. Align the cut off corner of the plug with the intrusion in the slot, and it should work fine. If this is confusion, just keep rotating the plug until it's in correctly.

What are the two plastic screws in the side of a kitchen aid for ?


They are the motor brushes, you do not need to fiddle about with them. Take them out again, look at them, one corner is missing from the carbon block. Look in the hole with a torch, right at the bottom there is a small blocker in one corner, line up your missing corner on the brush with the blocker and put it back together. Stop fiddling about and make a cake.

How to replace motor brushes? I only can take the small springs after unscrewing the caps on both sides. The carbon brushes are still inside? Tell me how to take them out and just put new brushes with...


I believe the brushes and the spring are one piece, so the brush should come out with the spring. Either the brushes are so worn that you just aren't noticing the little bit that's left, or the block has come loose from the spring. You can tip the machine over so the brush hole is facing down and let gravity do the work. If there's any brush left inside, it should slide out. Otherwise just install the new brushes.

Mixer won't turn on. I had the pin problem everyone describes. Finally was able to get the pin back in with some serious hammering of the pin and then tightened the set screw on the bottom. Fabulous!...


They are the brush springs. The brushes get caked up with burned flour. Remove the brush caps and pull the brushes out by their springs, being VERY careful to note the position of them since they only go back in one way. Measure the free length of the spring before pulling it out. It is critical that you write down the length sticking out with very slight pressure on it so that it is seated against the armature when you measure.

Clean the curved surface of the carbon brushes with a sharp knife being careful not to scratch the curved surface. If you have them installed wrong they will not go all the way in and will not contact the armature and it will not run. Measure the length, as done above, of the spring to make sure it is in correctly!! If it is not in correctly the spring will stick out 1/4 inch longer than it should.

I have a kitchenaide mixer and now it will not turn on


Remove those plastic caps again and this time remove the brushes from the side of the mixing head. Inspect the curved surface of the brush and clean any carbonized flour from the surface - be careful not to damage the surface of the carbon brush.

When replacing the brushes make sure they go in the correct way - there is only one way, the brushes will not go in far enough if they are in the wrong orientation. Trial and error works, watching how far in the brushes go. once you have found the correct position, the brush will go in 1/4 inch further than the other three positions.

The mixer works, but the motor is very loud.


I would first check that the motor brushes aren't worn out. They are held behind the black blastic caps on either side of the mixer head. These caps unscrew and the motor brushes are held in with a spring. Note the direction they go in, they are keyed and will only work when put in the right way. Use a torch to check. There is a picture of a new brush here: http://kitchenaidmixerspares.co.uk/Home/tabid/36/ProductID/88/Default.aspx

If this is not the problem the next stage would be to take the head apart to check the state of the gears and grease.

My mixer started to smoke!!


If it started to smoke out the back it may just be the motor brush.There are several parts available online I have included one site of many HERE
There are a lot of parts sites available you may want to find one close to you.You can check your brushes before you order replacement ones by unscrewing the large black screws on each side of the mixer if there is not much left of the metal portion on the end of the spring that's the problem.Hope this helps you.
