Mixi getting burnt smell when running

The motor may be binding up or the gears may be in need of lubrication. Check the internal parts and look for dark marks on moving parts. Check the power cord. Look for bare wires or material collected on the mechanical parts. Be aware of overheating can start a fire.

Preeti mixie stopped working

I know it is kind of late to answer this, but those who are looking anew for a solution to this problem might find this helpful so writing my experience. I also brought a Preethi mixie, 110V from India and in less than two uses of about 5-10min it stopped. I searched everywhere for a solution and even called service center in Chicago (yes, there is one in Chicago, IL) and finding it difficult to go there and get it repaired, I dared to open it.

I am glad I did as I noticed a connector wire (with a plastic seal/insulator) is burnt. It is a simple fix and I cleaned the burnt part and carefully exposed the wire a little bit more and connected it back to the other wire as it is supposed to and put the insulator back in its place. I started the mixer and its working now :)

I have been using it for a month now since I fixed it to make dosa batter, chutneys etc and it is still working. So I think this is the problem most of us had with mixer not working after few minutes of usage and even the overload button not working. Try this and let me know if this solved your problem.
Happy Cooking!

What is the red switch for on Kenwood Chef A901?

If the attachments that you are talking about are the dough hook and the whip, then the red lever is not used to put them in or take them out. The red lever releases the plastic housing on the end of the mixer, which then exposes the mounting hole for the major attachments such as the grinder, sausage maker, etc. You push the red plastic lever, then gently pull off the plastic end of the mixer. It should come off with absolutely no force. Then insert your food grinder or other attachment with the red lever held back. Once the cog on the grinder is aligned with the fitting inside the hole, release the red lever so that the recessed hole on the grinder will become engaged. The Kitchenaid classic stand mixer and the Viking stand mixer have essentially the same set up.

Doesn't work

I just fixed mine and it sounds like some of you may have the same problem. Problem was...Lights on top come on but when you push the start button, nothing happens. The problem was the upright position kill switch. First, to get the cover off... unplug the unit. Then, right next to where you attach your beater in the center of the round plate is an octagonal piece with a pin pushed through to hold the round steel plate with the beater holder. Punch the pin out and the beater holder will come off. Now you have access to two more hex (or star) screws like the two you can see under the arm of the unit. Remove these 4 screws (the two that are under the plate and the two you could already see) and the top cover will come off. Be sure not to yank any wires too hard as it is all electronic in there. Once the cover is off, have the mixer facing with the plug end to the right and the beater end to the left. Now, looking at the insides, on the far right and closest to you, you will see a small switch which should get pressed when the unit is in the down position. It should catch on a small piece of metal that is held in place by a small philips screw. On my unit, this metal piece which should have been in place to trip the switch when the unit was down had broken off. I took a very small piece of metal about 1cm long, drilled a hole in one end so the screw would hold it in place and then bent it 90 degrees, so when the unit was in the down position, this metal piece would trip the kill switch for the motor. Anything to trip the kill switch would work. If you can't figure out what to use to trip the kill switch, you could just wrap a piece of tape or something around the switch so it is always activated, but this would potentially be unsafe as the beaters would then run in the upright position. Fixed mine in about 15 Hope some of you can do the same.
