Question about KitchenAid K45SS Classic Stand Mixer

2 Answers

Mixer will not power up. Power is good at the end of the cord. Wires then run underneath what I'd call the coil. When they come out to the control board, I have very little power. Ohm'd out the switch and it seems to be fine. Brushes are 3/4 inch and worm gear spins and looks fine. Why am I not getting power? It was also missing the four screws that hold the motor to the stand. Where can I get these?

Why is mixer not working?


Double check power at outlet or try another outlet with known power. Check the plug and cord connection. I recently had to replace my toaster cord because the cord at the plug had separated one of the wires. May be a switch or a safety device.

How to replace power cord on kitchenaid k4-b?


Take the four screws off that separate the top of the mixer from the stand,they are just above the handle that locks the bowls up when mixing.once you get the top off you will see where the wires connect to,simply disconnect the wires,remember which colors go where,because when you put the new cord on you will need to know where each color goes,it pretty straight forward,once cord is screwed in,put top of mixer back together and the screws are evenly tight.plug it in and mix away,if there's no power orbit sparks unplug right away and check wires ,to make sure you got in right spot and they are tighten down all the way.

Kitchenette aid mixer does not turn on


several possibilities. but we need the model number for your mixer, the model number can be found underneath you mixer on a white tag about 1 inch x 3 inches, it will also have your serial number, that would be important to know because there have been parts made in different versions for different years made, so both would be a good thing to get back to us with. The possible problems could be in no real order>>>
1. your power outlet in your house
2 the power cord to the mixer
3 the speed control switch inside the mixer
4 the carbon brushes inside the motor head of the mixer
5 the armature a motor part
6 the stator a motor part
The first four are easy fixes the last two will require a full tear down. but there are lots of things to test first. let us know.

Mixer only runs at one speed


if it runs only at high speed it needs a new phase control board if the mixer is post 1978, if the mixer is pre 1978 then you will have to replace a capacitor on the end of the power cord inside the mixer. if the mixer only works on one speed that is not high speed then you need to adjust or replace the speed control plate on post 1978 mixers and the capacitor on pre 1978 machines. Hope that helps

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.

Hi. Before you take your mixer apart, take a multimeter and test for continuity in the cord. Wiggle the ends of the cord while you're doing this in an attempt to make the cord fail. If it tests out OK, then you must get inside the mixer. If you have the ability to repair the mixer then do so, otherwise take it to a repair place for them to check it out.

Goto www.kitchenaid.com, enter your model # and search for the parts catalog for your mixer. Download the info. This will help you with the project
