Appliance Noise Level

For a couple of years now I have been interested in the Fleetwood BPS12 mixer as the next step up for me (currently DeLonghi 7-qt.). However, the noise level of the mixer is absolutely crucial to me. No one local carries it so that I can plug it in, listen to it, and not buy it if it is too loud. Can you describe to me how loud this model is? More words are better . . . comparisons to other devices might be helpful (although "quieter than a leaf-blower doesn't do me much good"). Many thanks.

Hi if this has been in use long it appears that the bushes have got worn out and there is a "play" between the blade shaft and the body. A temp cure would be to oil the bush, but I am afraid eventually you will have to get it replaced at the dealers.

Delonghi DSM7 Stand Mixer won't start after overheating. Is there a reset button?

take it in to an appliance repair shop for a proper diagnosis and quote but it is probably not worth repairing ( armature and brushes )

The mixer will not start. Power gets to the unit and the blade does turn manually.

Hi - I assume you mean to say that the motor turns on, runs in all speeds but no power is being transferred to the planetary head and beaters?

If this was preceeded by some intermittent run conditions like occasionally skipping beaters and some louder than normal or different run noise then it's likely that the nylon Worm Gear has lost teeth and is no longer making contact with the motor gear. It is part of an assembly which is directly coupled to the motor. Disassembly is required to get at this part and some mechanical skill to replace it. If the mixer's a few years old and/or gets a lot of use, the gear grease should be replaced too. For the gears and other parts, including the grease - check out http://www.goodmans.net/get_dept_933.htm They seem to have just about every part needed and fair pricing. Appliance Parts Pros is another source of parts and diagrams. Warning - mixer disassembly is a medium complexity task and could ruin your day...

Good luck!

Kitchenaid mixer not running

Robbie. Are you getting any sound when you hit to start knob, or is it just dead silence? If you have dead silence, then it is definitely a power issue, which means it a couple of things could be conspiring to make your mixer not run. It may be a bad controller assembly (the speed knob), or it could be the motor, but either way it's something you can check yourself.
I'd start with the controller assembly and inspect that first. It's possible a connection has come loose. Unfortunately whole controller assembly is on a little PC board filled with resistors, capacitors and diodes, which was not meant to be 'home fixed'. My 'expertise' ends at being able to recognize a resistor from a capacitor, but I don't get much deeper than that. A local small appliance repair shop should be able to determine if the controller assembly is functioning properly or not.
The next possibility would be with the motor itself, but electric motors are pretty simple mechanisms and generally don't fail.
If your getting 'noise' from the motor but the mixer won't turn, then you've had a mechanical failure in the transmission box or planetary gear assembly of your mixer. The inspection and troubleshooting of the transmission is a DITY capability, particularly if your mixer is out of warranty. Just be sure to have the correct Part List manual around when you start to disassemble your mixer. You want Part No. 8212278 Rev D for your mixer, which you can download from KA customer service.
I hope this helps! Howard, Burke, VA

NO POWER! -- DeLonghi Stand Mixer 7 qt

There should be a overload breaker on the bottom of the motor, tilt it back and look for a little red (probably) button.  other than that, there shouldn't be anything else... if it doesn't  work, it might be defective... Don't give up hope though, those mixers, (used to be Rival, and made by Kenwood in europe) are *SOO* much better than Kitchenaid, it's not even funny *Grin* and good luck.

Hobart A200 mixer - motor hummed, didn't spin - now spins but is clunky Hi there, We have a Hobart A200 (SN 1683919). Last week it suddenly quit working - the motor would hum but neither the motor fan blades or the planetary would spin. I fiddled with it today - took off and put back on capacitor, cleaned (mechanical) switch, took off and reinstalled planetary - nothing major. I noticed that when I turned the motor fans by hand it would turn the planetary but only in the anti-clockwise direction. I spun the motor back and forth a few times and found that I could turn the motor by hand only 10 or 12 revolutions before it locked up, then I could spin it back the other direction, but again it would hit a spot and just stop. Looking into the grease holes I could see the worm gear sliding back and forth on the shaft. I then tried to turn it back on and the motor and planetary now spin but there is a regular clunky/snappy sound, can't tell if it's coming from the transmission or the motor. Also maybe helpful, when I took off the rear bearing cover plate there was a lot of tension pushing the bearing and spacer out about an 1/8" - I had to tap it back in with a hammer to get the cover plate back on. I know that's all pretty vague, but any thoughts would be appreciated. I'm thinking the shock absorber spring on the worm gear shaft, but I've never rebuilt a hobart transmission case and would love to not have to! Thanks everybody
