Kenwood Chef A701 Gearbox Rebuild Advice

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

Hi,

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.

Does anyone know the model number of a stainless steel bowl to fit the Kenwood Chef KM300/


The model number doesn't really exist other than the fact that the stainless steel bowl is available for just about every Chef made. My own KM300 has a stainless steel bowl for example that came as standard - it however is the same bowl you can order from Kenwood or EBay under the A701/A901 model - all bowls from Kenwood can be fitted on the Chef model with the exception of the Major model which is a larger and taller machine.

Hi,

You have to take off the top on the gearbox, then you have all gears in front off you.

It´s correct that you should use vegetable based grease, the spare part number Kenwood use for this is: KW630879
