Question about Kenwood Chef Major A701 Food Mixer

Open Question

My kenwood chef is not turning the mixing blades, although the motor is running fine. It's probably at least 35 years old! But has worked fine until now! Mixed my Christmas cake only 2 weeks

Where do I send my Kenwood Chef food mixer to be serviced and repaired? I live in Bredasdorp Western Province


call the kenwood company spares department first and ask if spares are still available for that model, then ask for the address of a service agent in your area
if there are no spares then sending it any where for a service may get a reply that it is unrepairable because of lack of spares

Kenwood Chef KM400 motor speed is too slow


A failed SCR or triac will not always show visually any sign of failure. Chances are good that is all that is wrong. If mixer had been plugged in when it got wet, that is all it takes. Also check the transient voltage supressors if the chef has them. They would be identified on the circuit board. as TVS or MOV along with a number. Only number to use is the one on the component.

If you can find ratings for the old devices, just matching the basic ratings should do. Just guessing, but the SCRs should be 20 amp and 400 volt, If the old ones are a lower rating than my guess, there is no problem with using the higher ratings, if my guess is low, go with the original's ratings. Manufacturer of device does not matter as long as ratings are at least comparable.

I have inherited an old Kenwood Chef mixer...I am unsure of the model but it is probably 30 years old, is white and the cover for the blender is blue. It was made in Australia, Elizabeth SA. I have...


Can't refer you to a dealer there but it is likely that only the motor's brushes need to be replaced. This isn't a difficult DIY job and the brushes shouldn't cost more than ~ $20 US.
You could also remove the housing covering the motor and see if the commutator is visible. This is a segmented copper cylinder and shouldn't be completely blackened although some signs of black is normal. The brushes ride on this cylinder and if the brushes have become too short, it can cause arcing and smoke. Clean that surface before installing new brushes and they too may smoke and cause rough running until they are worn in. The brushes can be had many places so you will have to choose one convenient to you:

How do I remove and refit a motor to my KM300?


What you need is a service manual which is difficult to get for any Chef regardless of the KM300. Ive got a KM310 model but the user manual is similar to this if it helps:
