Kenwood Chef model A901 smoke & burning electric smell from motor

My model A901 Kenwood chef began to smoke and give off an acrid buring electrics smell whilst creaming cake mixture (100g butter, 100g sugar & 2 eggs!). I had made another cake just before this one too. I know that it is old and I suspect that the smell is coming from the motor. Do you know what is wrong with it and can it be fixed?

    hi

    just had the same problem PLUS it stopped all together. I had this before and a friend of mine replaced some sort of copper wire and fuses? and told me that it will work BUT it is not far away from giving up, the motor.

    so here i am in the middle of new zealand and have ,first time in my life, NO kenwood handy for christmas baking. desperate now, dont know if one can replace the motor on a 30year old mixer. any ideas for me? cheers and hopefully yours is not in such a bad shape.

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.

There was a smell of burning, i.e. very hot wiring insulatiuon (?) on old Kenwood Chef Model 901. Could it be the motor or some other component, and can I repair it? If it is due to overloading due to...


Hi sometimes, its not the motor, maybe its the speed control, in this model same A701 its centrifugal system, if the capacitor or resistor not working fine, give this smell . you must give your Kenwood for repair or check

Smoking Kenwood Chef A901


I have just had the exact sme problem.
It is caused by a 1 watt resistor on the board.
You will also find that very possibly the large capacitor, a 0.1uF, has aso burnt out. This capacitor would have cracked open down the side and that is where the smoke came from.
parts can be replaced by a repair man and possibly a better solution is to have the board replaced, They are availiable still.
