The gears will not work. It will not turn on


There are three springs which can be seen when the back cover is removed. Two are behind the black control plate (the pair of screws at the top of the plate are tensioned by these screws) and another spring that pulls on the bottom of the control plate (this one comes from deep inside the motor housing).

The following link will take you to a copy of the KitchenAid Service Manual which will help you identify the springs and, I hope, the problem.

Why wont my classic kitchenaid mixer switch off


Good Morning,

There is a spring inside your mixer attached to the speed control switch and speed control arm, the spring can sometimes get caught on the slide bar that is just below it inside the mixer. The other reason is that the speed control switch plate in the rear of the machine (that the spring attaches to) vibrates the three speed adjustment screws out or in and the spring will pull the speed switch (control arm that you use to control mixing speed when using the mixer) back to the stir position after you try to turn the mixer off.

If it is a spring problem you will have to do a full tear down to get at the spring and either free it or replace it. If it is a problem with the adjustment screws on the speed plate, that can be handled at the rear of the machine and is twice as easy to get at but sometimes much more frustrating to adjust. There are "YouTube" videos on the internet that will walk you through the process of adjusting your speed control plate just Google "adjusting speed on kitchenaid mixer" I hope this helps. please let us know if it does and if you have other questions just post them here and we will "FixYa"

My kitchenaid professional mixer will not run.


The Service Manual for your mixer can be found at:

http://www.kitchenaidparts.eu/documents/pdf/service-manual/classic-svc-manual-new-email-version.pdf

Among the causes for the mixer not turning on are (in no particular order) --

The leaf-spring switch on the Control Plate is not making contact.
The Phase Board is defective.
Brushes need replacement.
Brush chamfered side not correctly oriented.
Bad armature or field coil.
Seized motor bearing.
Detached or broken Control Board spring.
Speed Control Link plastic end broken.

I unscrewed the two black bolts on the side of my mixer and two springs popped out. I put them back in and now my mixer will not work at all


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.

I took out the two black flat screws on the side of my KitchenAid mixer and out sprung a spring and magnet. When I replacter them my mixer won't start...


It sounds like you removed the brushes, look in the hole and determine the orientation of the carbon brush( what you describe as magnet). Rotated 90 degrees may keep motor from running...

KitchenAid K5sswh mixer after replacing plastic gear-no power


Hi COVINIO. Yes, the "large black spring loaded magnetic screws on the sides of the mixer" are your mixer's brushes, which supplies electricity to the electric motor. (The black cap is the brush cover). I suspect that one or both of the brushes is (are) not seated properly. Did you remove the brushes to replace them or were you just inspecting them, when you replaced your plastic worm gear?
The brushes need to be installed so that they both seat correctly on the armature's commutator. See the illustration below:
cb20d79.jpg
I'd suggest removing them again and making sure the concave contact face rests completely on the armature’s commutator. If you've turned it 90 degrees too much, it won’t seat properly and you get no power to the motor.
It would also be helpful to have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website at: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case use KSM50P (Your K5SS mixer falls within this manual), and select the first file KSM50P.pdf (438.31 KB) listed under Parts List (4) and then check to verify this matches your mixer model.
Turn to pages 6 & 7, titled “Motor And Control Parts”, which provides an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer’s electrical components, along with all the parts. Locate Illus No 47, Brush holder assembly that includes #28, 32, 33, 34 & 46 which is the brush holder insert, and Illus. No. 29, brush & Spring assembly respectively. The illustration along with the picture above regarding the orientation of the brushes should get your mixer powered back up and operational. Good luck! I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

There is a banging / clicking noise when moter is


With the machine unplugged, remove those two black screws on the side and pull out the motor brushes. Make sure the metal blocks on the ends of the springs are in good shape. These wear out and the screws are there to easily replace them. You can order new ones cheap from kitchenaid. If it's not those brushes then the problem could be in the gearbox and you can't fix it. Are you sure it's not a bent wire whip or mixing paddle banging against an improperly seated bowl?

Springs on side under black screw, came out


Or, more helpfully, take them back out.  Look in the hole, and you will notice that when you look through, the hole turns square. At the end the square, there is a little tab / square in one corner.  It is generally *not* the same on both sides. You'll notice that the end of the piece you took out (the part that looks like a magnet) has one corner cut off -- so it's a rectangular box with one of the corners gone.  Line up the missing corner of the piece you took out with the corner that has the little tab -- this allows the piece to get past the tab and be fully inserted.  Reminder: check both sides, because they're not the same. And now, more helpfully, if you're curious, check out flea markets and get a broken Kitchenaid to take apart for $20 or so. Don't mess with your nice one. : )

KitchenAid Mixer stopped working after I took the black screws on the side out. Thought that I put it back in right with the springs. Maybe I didn't. What could have happened? Thanks Nancy


The brushes must be insert in a particular manner in order for it to work correctly. If you remove the brushes and shine a flashlight into the hole, you should see a small detent or "stop" in one corner of the hole. Its a square hole. Match this corner with the corner of the brush which is shaved off. The brush is not square; it has one corner shaved or smoothed down. This allows the brush to fully extend into the hole. If the brush is inserted any other way, it will not contact the motor and will not run.
