Question about KitchenAid K45SS Classic Stand Mixer
Just won't turn on. No humming or any noise. acts as if the switch is bad. There were no problems or indications anything was wrong until it broke. I rotated the brushes but that did not help.
I am sorry to hear you are having trouble with your mixer.
Please check if your motor brushes have been put in correctly as this may be the issue. I have added links below for our help video on motor brushes which may help you:

I would recommend that you first check the Hall Effect sensor
which determines the mixer’s speed. I had this exact problem and I
actually went out and bought another Hall sensor for about $13. I
replaced the original sensor and made sure that the connection between the
sensor and control board was nice and snug. My mixer worked as good as new! But
I was curious to know if my original sensor was defective, so I put it back in
mixer and again made sure all of the connections were snug and tight. Guess what?
My original sensor also made my mixer work! There was nothing wrong
with the original Hall Effect sensor except that the connection between the control
board and sensor was not tight--unfortunately I didn't check the connection
before I decided to buy another sensor. My guess is that the connection between
the control board and the sensor probably loosens or comes undone over time
from use and vibrations. To fix your problem:
1. Download the mixer parts and diagrams from the Kitchenaid website to see what the Hall Effect sensor looks like. BTW the part number is 9703312.
2. You'll need a phillips head screwdriver to open up the mixer gear case cover.
3. Make sure that the connection between the control board and sensor is absolutely tight and snug.
4. Also, make sure that the orientation of the sensor is correct. It's difficult to tell which way the sensor should be connected because the control board has three prongs and the sensor can attach facing up or down. After you've made the connection, run the mixer. If it still doesn't work, disconnect the sensor, reconnect it with the prongs facing the opposite direction and try it again. I actually found the right sensor orientation through a little trial and error. But by going through this trial and error, I also had my Eureka moment when I realized that the original sensor probably would also work if it were reconnected with correct orientation.
5. This whole process probably takes about 10-15 minutes to perform.
6. Finally, use your common sense and make sure to unplug the mixer before checking, connecting or disconnecting anything.

Some of the gears may have broken or slipped off. You'll need t open it up to see why the shaft from the motor will not spin or you will burn out the motor with the power on trying to make it go. It might be a DIY job if you can see an obvious problem like a slipped gear, otherwise take it to a repair specialist.
