SOURCE: Kenwood Chef KM400 motor speed is too slow

A failed SCR or triac will not always show visually any sign of failure. Chances are good that is all that is wrong. If mixer had been plugged in when it got wet, that is all it takes. Also check the transient voltage supressors if the chef has them. They would be identified on the circuit board. as TVS or MOV along with a number. Only number to use is the one on the component.

If you can find ratings for the old devices, just matching the basic ratings should do. Just guessing, but the SCRs should be 20 amp and 400 volt, If the old ones are a lower rating than my guess, there is no problem with using the higher ratings, if my guess is low, go with the original's ratings. Manufacturer of device does not matter as long as ratings are at least comparable.

Kenwood prospero km262 stopped working


In my case, capacitor C1: 470nF (on the circuit board) proved to be the cause. It measured only half its normal value. It's part of a voltage divider used in place of a transformer. Replacing it solved the problem.
Came already across the same problem in another circuit.

The machine only works intermittently


had the same problem with Kenwood Prospero.
look for 2 pairs of watty (1.1 kohm 2W?)series resistors. At junction of the
2 pairs there is glue which degrades with heat and becomes conductive. CAREFULLY scrape away the old glue after removing the resistors. Check for shorts and resolder the resistors. You may be lucky. I was

The machine keeps cutting out during blending and mixing


need clarification. what does cut out mean? The motor stops altogether? The beaters stop spinning but you still get motor sounds? It comes on and goes completely off while in use and then comes back on. is there ever a bad smell or smoke? Are there any unusual sounds that you hear before it does a cut out or after it comes back on? Does it ever go up or down in speed on it's own. do the attachment gears on top spin while you are mixing in the bowl? we need to narrow the field of questions down to get to the right repair path. Please let us know.
