Started taking parts off our mixer in prep for replacing the power cord. Also, just to check the wear, I pulled out and then reinserted the brushes from both sides. Each had about 5/8" to 3/4' left of the metal piece at the end of the spring. I reinserted the brushes in the only orientation they would fit due to one corner being beveled. Now when I slide the speed selector lever forward I can hear a small click but nothing moves. I hear the click again moving the lever back.

So, what to check? I can't find any other way to reinsert the brushes. What to look at next?

Thanks,
Ron

Unfortunately a mixer is not considered a major appliance so we won't have any information on it. You might check online or youtube.
