Question about Food Mixers
Kenwood chef A701 had been running erratically - I stripped it down to find 1st pinion gear split and revolving on shaft. New item ordered and en-route, along with new grease. I guess that the presence of the felt drip pads means that the gearbox is expected to 'leak' some grease in operation. The seal between the two halves of the gear box appears to be sound, but is there any point putting in a gasket when rebuilding (I didn't find one on strip down) I assume the grease has therfore come out of the shafts - I see from other questions that this is happening to other people, and appears to be part of normal operation and the reason for the felt, but is there any information available on bush sizes etc to check clearances/sizes? Cheers paul

How old is the machine?
The leaking comes from the lower gearbox assembly, ther are two kind of gearbox. There are two kind of vertical drive shaft, 14mm and 12,7mm that goes through the gearbox.
You can try to replace the grease, make sure that is vegetable grease.

It uses a different thread = turn clockwise to undo - not the normal turn ccw to undo and the nut is attached to the 2 blades.
