Kenwood Chef Mixer A 901P Electronic speed controller replacement.

I am replacing the speed controller on a Kenwood chef A901P.
The old one is a simple bakalite one with on/off contacts and what I assume to be a thyristor with a couple of support componets.

The replacement is a PCB which seems to use a form of inductive loop to interface with the speed goveners on the end of the armeture.

Does anybody have an idea which wires no go to which terminals on the new PCB board??

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.
