How do you remove the large belt pulley to gain access to the gearbox cover screw underneath it?

    I have solved this problem myself. The nylon belt pulley is obviously pressed on to the shaft and an probably be prised off. However, I felt that there was a very high chance of damaging it without a special puller to get right behind it. The solution I arrived at was to drill an 8mm hole in the pulley directly above the screw and remove the screw with a magnetized screwdriver through the pulley. As the pulley only revolves quite slowly when in operation the small hole does not affect the balance and cause any vibration.

There should be an access screw on the bottom of the transmission housing where grease can be checked or introduces. Remove this plug and carefully introduce a tool such as a wide flat screwdriver to 'lock' the gears from turning. The nylon gear and 'isolator' should come off fairly easily

SOURCE: Disassembling the gearbox on Kenwood mixer A707

If the belt wheel is pressed onto a spindle, you need a gear puller. Do you have any pictures of this? I am trying to visualize the problem.

Accessing gearbox in Hobart N50 (older model)


Take the back cover off the motor and then there will be four nuts that hold on the back bearing cage of the motor. After removing that, you will find 7 large screws in beside the motor that remove the gearbox.

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:

It could be a broken drive belt, this is usually located under the top cover. You may need to remove a couple of screws to get at it. Don't forget to unplug the mixer before trying this.

Hi,

I don´t think you can get a new one, you have to replace the gearbox on the machine.
