Kenwood Chef A901 - grease coming out of hole in gearbox

I've just been given an old Kenwood Chef A901 mixer.

Under a small cover on the top of the machine is a hole about 1cm in diameter with a screw thread. A lot of grease is coming out of this hole.

I'd like to block it up.

Any info about what the hole is for, and how to stop it leaking grease would be welcome.

What is the red switch for on Kenwood Chef A901?


If the attachments that you are talking about are the dough hook and the whip, then the red lever is not used to put them in or take them out. The red lever releases the plastic housing on the end of the mixer, which then exposes the mounting hole for the major attachments such as the grinder, sausage maker, etc. You push the red plastic lever, then gently pull off the plastic end of the mixer. It should come off with absolutely no force. Then insert your food grinder or other attachment with the red lever held back. Once the cog on the grinder is aligned with the fitting inside the hole, release the red lever so that the recessed hole on the grinder will become engaged. The Kitchenaid classic stand mixer and the Viking stand mixer have essentially the same set up.

Kenwood will not turn


It is possible that the drive belt has broken. It is located under the housing on top of the mixer but you need to remove 2 screws under the housing then remove the 3 retaining screws on the drive mechanism. The top of the housing will then lift off and reveal the drive belt. Caution this is not a DIY job for non mechanically minded persons and as always make sure the equipment is disconnected from the power supply. If in doubt seek qualified assistance.
