    Thanks so much, saved us so much money! Our local Kenwood repair quoted us over $120 to fix what just needed spanners!

    Thanks Chris - I had the same problem and your solution worked for me too. When I compare my silicone beater (the one that got stuck) and my stainless steel one (that can be easily removed) I notice that on the silicone beater the spindle with the the T- bar fixer sits lower into the beater, so when fitted into the mixer it's a very tight fit. I might try unscrewing the spindle from the beater a few turns so that it's not quite so snug.

I couldn't remove the K-Beater as when I tried to turn it the whole mechanism turned with it. I couldn't even remove the splashguard! I was going to take it to the Kenwood factory (a few miles from home) but then I thought I'd give it one more go and this is what I did...

  1. Next to where the K-Beater attaches in the middle of the circular plate is a lug with a pointed-shape bolt on the end. Remove this with a spanner and the beater plus gear cog can be removed.
  2. Place some mole grips or wide pliers on a worktop and sit the cogged gear in to it and grip so that it won't turn.
  3. Now you should be able to remove the K-Beater!
Perhaps someone can suggest how to stop it happening again. I haven't attached anything since but will update this post if I have any other helpful tips.

    Thanks! This worked for my Kenwood Major Titanium KM020. I think the gear cog needs to be replaced now, because none of the tools fit anymore. It looks like a ring of metal is smeared on the inside of the tool/gear shaft.

    Kenwood Major Titanium KM030 There is an alternative solution to this problem, which would be worth trying first. I found that the nut on the shaft at the top of the beater had become loose and worked it's way up(!) the shaft so that it had effectively bolted itself on to the female end. In other words the gap was less than that required for the k beater to move up in order for it to slip out the slot in the female end. Put a spanner on the nut and (about 13mm) spin it so it moves towards the beater - away from the machine. Simpler than dismantling the whole thing. Cheers Mark

Cannot remove the flexi beater


I have read on other posts that it is the nut at the top of the beater that is causing the problem. You need to rotate it downwards toward the beater in order to have sufficient room to push and rotate the beater out. This didn't work for me, nor did attempting to remove the whole plate by undoing the lug beside the beater insert. Now that I have worn the lug and the nut I cannot get it repaired at a Kenwood service specialist as I have attempted the repair myself.
My advice is to go straight to a professional. Whatever they charge it will be cheaper than being stuck with a machine you can only use some of the time and have to replace!

Have a 20 plus year old Kenwood chef [navyblue and white] don't know the model number. When the K beater or whisk are attached they rotate for a few seconds then fall out any ideas what to do


for both attachments to fall out the planet hub must be worn out. check that there is a spring clip in the groove of the beaters. if you have had it repaired recently it may be running backwards which woluld eject the attachments.

Can't remove beater kmix from machine. it's stuck!kenwood


Here's how to fix the stuck implement problem:

The implements each have adjustable heights. to adjust the height you need to loosen the bolt at the top with a 14mm spanner. If the bolt was loose when it was being used then it can get too short and not leave enough clearance between the bolt and the machine in order to push up and turn to release the implement. If this happens take the open ended spanner, grasp the implement and rotate the spanner clockwise (when looking up at the machine from below. Once the nut is loose rotate the implement until there is enough clearance to remove it normally.

New Kenwood chef km 001 - I can't get the beaters out!


Try turning the beater in the reverse direction to the direction it normally turns - clockwise looking at the beater (I think), this should make the shaft pins ride up on some cams which should release the beater.

This kind of unit are lubricated with grase paste. If the unit stays inactive for a long time, or if the motor and gears are overheating the grease paste gets melted into thin oil, and that will cause the leak.
The oil leak is usually coming from the gear box inside the appliance.
To fix the problem the unit must be taken apart, and cleaned. After this step, there is need to spread again the grease, using special foodsafe grease paste.
Disassemblying the gear box is not that easy, you will need previous experience and a gear puller to do the job properly and safely.
This appliances are also held with security screws to prevent the users from taking apart the unit, and can only be disassembled using a Security screwdriver tip.

The grease can be purchased here, check at the bottom of the page: Kenwood chef food mixer Grease.
