the unit lost power and shorted out phas board and plate ctrl both things replaced and still no power . brushes are over 1/2 long,and i have power to brushes could it still be brushes
Answer Danny, The motor brushes need to be at least 5/16" in length, and oriented properly in the holder. At this point, based on your post information, you need to look at the armature W10477041 since the control board and plate were damaged and shorted, they could have damaged the windings in the armature as well.
What set of brushes do I need? I know the mixer is old.
Answer Hello Dave. The model number you provided is not working. We will need your full model number to help you with this. Thanks. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/modelnumber_locator.aspx

Are there any specific directions for replacing brushes?
I notice brushes have a bevel on one side.
Thank you, Joe
Answer Joe, the general rule of thumb, the longer side of the motor brush should be installed in sync with the motor rotation / direction. If the motor rotates clockwise, the longer end should be on the right, counterclockwise, the long end should be on the left. We hope this is helpful!
