Kenwood Chef A701A Motor - not running

Trying to find out why motor not running. It does not rotate but seems to vibrate in one spot.

The brushes are new. Field windings both have the same ohm value (5.4 Ohms). Readings between armature segmets are 2.2 ohms with a few segs down to 1.8 ohms. (I suspect this could be the fault - I probably need to get the armature tested with a growler). Reading between armature windings and stator (earth) is 16Mohms. Any ideas if this is okay?

I know this may sound stupid, but check that you have the earth wire from the mains connector, athinish black wire connected to the terminal on the mixer. My Kenwood would not run after i made a capacitor repar. The motor just "Buzzed" until i put the thin black earth strap back onto the casing.
I sincerely hope this helps,

Hi, I'm from Malaysia.I have a Kenwood Chef model A701A.While creaming cheese the power whisk does not rotate.Could you please help to overcome this problem.thank you.


Hi from the Philippines and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

Is it just the power whisk or all attachments that do not rotate? On the A701A there is a clutch and spring fitted to the gearbox. (Spring loaded clutch) There is a pin in the cover that actuates the clutch. If the pin is broken or come out of the cover then the front of the machine will not work. (you may have to have someone fabricate a new pin!) If the clutch spring has broken you will experience the symptom you described also.

There is also a belt from the motor to the gearbox and the belt may have broken or come off.
The belt can be found on Ebay here:

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly
