Same burning problem but identified burnt out part

On inspection one of the capacitors has burnt out or is burning out hence the smoke etc... but cannot see the rating (due to melting). Has anyone got a wiring diagram or can tell me how many micro farads it is - There seem to be 2 capacitors the good one is 0.047 micro farads - does any one know the size of the slightly larger capacitor?

Why My Hobart A200 20 QT Mixer ML #104858 Motor Is Smoking?


I think... without knowing that motor... that the capacitor is a start capacitor, and that the start switch may be trying to "start" the motor full-time instead of switching it out of circuit after it figures that the motor has spun up. I may be wrong - that design may be a capacitor-run motor (similar to a three-phase motor) - but I'm betting it's a start-only capacitor.

If you know someone with a capacitance meter, you could check the capacitor - for both capacitance (to be sure it matches the label) and leakage. Easy way to write that one off. Alternatively, you could rig it such that after the motor's wound up you could manually disconnect the capacitor and see what happens - either the motor stops or else the smoking issue stops.

Whatever you do, don't let it smoke very long. The varnish on the windings is only so thick.

Why does mixer smoke and smell like burning cloth while still running


Very common problem on those is old capacitors on the pcb. Sorry I cannot help you where to buy them but search for supply in the UK should produce results.

I have a Kenwood Major mixer that gives off smoke an electrical burning smell from the motor when running. Is it worth repairing?


hi its not necessarily the motor but could be some capacitors on the speed control unit ( the control knob is attached to it) spares are reasonable to buy .you can find a dealer from kenwood.co.uk website..

The capacitor on the speed switch is burning out.


I have found that the capacitor is no longer available, along with
any of the motor parts. Armature, brushes, motor end bearing, etc, are not available.

Smoking Kenwood Chef A901


I have just had the exact sme problem.
It is caused by a 1 watt resistor on the board.
You will also find that very possibly the large capacitor, a 0.1uF, has aso burnt out. This capacitor would have cracked open down the side and that is where the smoke came from.
parts can be replaced by a repair man and possibly a better solution is to have the board replaced, They are availiable still.

It may be the motor but it is most likely a burnt out capacitor, these can be replaced for around £30. It is not a DIY job unless you know a qualified electrician as soldering is involved. Best to take it in for repair if you think it is worth it.
