Question about Kenwood KM300 Chef Stand Mixer
I am looking for a capacitor, part no. 61835, which is a three lead out capacitor,with a value of 0.1 + 0.01uF. The leadouts are Red, Black and Green. The type number on the capacitor is W.1022, and the test voltage is 1500Volts.
It would be greatly appreciated if you could help me with this problem, as these capacitors are apparently out of stock with Kenwood.

The 0.1 microfarad can be safely replaced with a 275 VAC 0.1mF mains capacitor. You can remove the clip that held the old electrolytic capacitor by sliding the old capacitor out and squeeezing the metal clip so that it disengages with the plastic base. The load resistor is 450 Ohm 15W or 20W wirewound. There is a 56 ohm resistor in series with the capacitor which helps smooth the speed change and reduces wear on the contacts. A 2W wirewound resistor works best. (It is worth removing the contacts and removing any pitting or carbon build up with fime emery paper). I have repaired about 20 speed controls sucessfully with these components.
