Question about KitchenAid KT2651X Epicurean Stand Mixer
The handle that lifts the bowl on my moms kitchenaid mixer is stuck, you can move the back part with the arms up and down and it moves the handle a little bit but otherwise nothing.
How comfortable are you with electrical parts? With the mixer UNPLUGGED and the switch ON measure resistance between the (flat) plug pins. If it's infinite (no meter movement) which is to be expected, there is an open circuit. The switch could be open or the wire to the switch could be disconnected (improbable) or the motor could be burned out and open (not very probable).
Maybe you could take the switch to a shop and have it tested.
This is not really a solution, just step 1.

I think you have a K45SS. It sounds like there is a problem with one of the gears, probably the worm gear. The worm gear is designed to be the first to fail if the mixer has struggled with a heavy dough or other difficult to mix substance. The best way to establish the cause will be to open the head up and check the gears for signs of damage.
