Grease coming out of ballon whisk

After two or three times I have used my Kenwood Chef KM400, I noticed black grease coming out of the upper part of the ballon whisk. Due to rotation this black thing went down into the cream I was beating. Can I open and clean it, or should I contact service?

I think you should contact a service rather than opening and cleaning your device for you to be sure that your device will be fixed correctly...

Cannot remove the flexi beater


I have read on other posts that it is the nut at the top of the beater that is causing the problem. You need to rotate it downwards toward the beater in order to have sufficient room to push and rotate the beater out. This didn't work for me, nor did attempting to remove the whole plate by undoing the lug beside the beater insert. Now that I have worn the lug and the nut I cannot get it repaired at a Kenwood service specialist as I have attempted the repair myself.
My advice is to go straight to a professional. Whatever they charge it will be cheaper than being stuck with a machine you can only use some of the time and have to replace!

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.

Hi,

You have to take off the top on the gearbox, then you have all gears in front off you.

It´s correct that you should use vegetable based grease, the spare part number Kenwood use for this is: KW630879

Kenwood Chef Excel smells like smoke


It is most likely a burnt out capacitor. They can be replaced for about £30, but it is not a DIY job unless you know a qualified electrician, there is soldering involved!
