Hi All, This forum looks neat.

Now that I'm in, I notice that the topics are all major appliances. Can we discuss a countertop device?

I have a KitchenAid model K5-A mixer that has a toasted "motor brush holder housing" Part# C-116284. This part is very difficult to find. Would I be able to use a part from the K5SS? That part number is 3179908 or 4162545.

First, does anyone have a line on the original part? (C-116284) I have tried RepairClinic.com without success.

Secondly, can anyone tell me if the K5SS brush holder housing would work on a K5-A?

Thanks in advance, Jim

Not much info on Kitchenaid mixers here.  Got a few threads from the old Appliantology group on this page

As for your parts replacement question, call a Kitchenaid service center, they're usually very helpful and can give you some diagnostic info on the phone to help you get the right part.  They're listed in the back of your use and care manual.  If you lost the manual, the Kitchenaid website might have a listing.  I've done this with DeWalt when I was repairing a chop saw-- similar problem, too: broken brush holder-- the guy told me on the phone that was the most common reason the motor stops running and I can checked everything else.  Ordered the brush holder, installed it, and BAM! I was back to cutting it up.

Thanks for the reply Samurai. This is a old unit that I bought at auction "as-is" for cheap. Took the motor housing apart and saw that the brush holder was fried, as in carbonized.

I really have needed a mixer like this for years, 'cause I bake bread, so to me it's worth fixing.

The KitchenAid website has a list of authorized repair shops by state. Since Oklahoma doesn't have any, I have called most of the shops in Texas, Missouri and Kansas without success. 

Fortunately, I was referred to a guy in Oklahoma City that likes to restore vintage machines. He said he will scour his boneyard to see if he has any parts to re-cycle  :) He should get back tomorrow if he has time.

You have a very nice board here. Keep up the good work.

Hi Pegi, thanks.

hmmm... I went to the site and could only find accessories and attachments. http://www.culinaryparts.com/btc/search.aspx?k=K5SS+KITCHENAID.

I'll call them tomorrow and talk to a person, maybe I didn't go deep enough.

Have a good evening, Jim
