If your mixer isn't turning on, there could be several issues with it. First, check the circuit breaker in your home to make sure power is supplied to the mixer. Unplug your mixer and wait 15 seconds to plug it back in. If this does not work, there could be an issue with your phase board. See the guide on how to replace the KitchenAid mixer phase board.

My mixer was squealing so I disassembled it. It was working fine other than making noise. I found metal shavings and a loose screw. I cleaned shavings, tightened the loose screw, lubricated and reassembled. Figuring this may be the fix to the noise. I plugged back in, turned it on and nothing. Power from outlet in working. When I turn on, it doesn't make any noise at all, like it's not getting power. I looked at electrical area and all connections seem fine.


Thank you Chris for help I really appreciate it
