Where are the so called brushes on a HD professional mixer


brushes are the carbon blocks that run on the commutator to complete the electrical circuit to make the motor work
If you need to access them then best take it in to an appliance repair shop for a service

Hobart se302 mixer


The resource center web site does not list machines of that vintage.
best bet is a motor rewind shop and shape larger brushes to fit.

Will not turn on


Undo the black plastic caps, one on each side. You probably need new carbon brushes. Remove them carefully and note that the brushes will only fit one way there is a blocking stop on the inner edge of the brush holder, you can see it with a torch when brush is out. Line the chamfered off corner of the new carbon brush up with the blocking stop. On one side it is at the back at the top and the other at the back at the bottom ( I think )

You may have control circuit trouble, connection issues with the wiring, control board trouble, all rather rare; more common is side effect from attempt to keep a clean kitchen...
...Beneath large (plastic) screw heads each side of mixer are a spring, copper or brass cup, another longer spring and a carbon brush... which may NOT slide out freely- if not, thats doubtless the problem... the carbon has a corner ground off it to insure proper alignment and preserve the commutator (motor life) so it only fits in one way... wrong way it will jam up on the keying device inside the brass or copper brush holder into which it slides. (the key can be seen all the way inside the holder with aid of a flashlight)
IF THIS BRUSH HOLDER SLIDES OUT WITH THE CARBON YOU HAVE A MAJOR MAJOR JOB TO REINSTALL IT CORRECTLY!!! If the carbon becomes an issue you are best advised to use a factory recommended facility for the repair and avoid damage to the commutator or other issues. It may require total disassembly and removal of entire motor, which usually involves disassembly of the transmission in order to remove the armature. In other words, absolute TOTAL disassembly in the worst-case scenario.
Good luck- most frequently its a simple matter, but beware of the heads-up issue. Check the brushes first but put em back carefully.

Get a copy of the Repair Part List for your model at Kitchenaid.com
On each side of the Motor Housing(1) is the large black Brush Motor
Cap(23). Each Carbon Brush(19) is keyed (one corner is not square)
and is designed to go into the Motor Housing slot but only one way.
Each Carbon Brush must make contact with the Motor Coils. The
motor will not turn if one or both does not come in contact with the coils.
If the brushes are too worn out, of course they won't touch the coils
neither and your motor will not run. You can purchased new brushes
on Ebay if they need to be replaced.

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.

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.

Hums and spins a little


Sounds like a bad connection on the brushes. Probably replacing the brushes is in order unless you can find the problem and have the expertise to fix it.

KitchenAid 300 Watts - doesn't turn on


the brushes are not square, but have one corner cut off.  use a flashlight to see which direction the brushes must be put back.  clean the ends of them well with a cotton cloth before reinstallation.
try spinning the rotor-head by hand, then try turning it on (sometime junk is stuck between the brushes and the commutator (motor).
