I hope you didn't buy a new one, ours stopped last week after 25 years. All that was needed were new brushes for the motor. Anyone with a screwdriver could replace them. 4Kenwood had the parts to me in a couple of days.

Tried the fuse? Are there any lights indicating the device is receiving power supply?

    The fuse would be inside the plug, but if the machine is receiving power, it's not the fuse.

    Go through it structurally, put the plug in, switch it on at the wall, switch it on at the machine.

    Try a different socket.

    Are other devices working within that room? It could be the trip-switch for the sockets.

    If power is fine, the machine will need to be looked-at inside; get a technician to look at it, or if you're not too fussed, get a new one - treat yourself.

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.
