Kenwood a710a mixer suddenly lacks power

Hi, I bought a second-hand Kenwood a701a mixer from the 1970s. I have used it a few times, and it worked fine. Then today all of a sudden the machine seems to have lost power. The dough hook and the other main attachments are still turning fine and at a good speed, but they are not strong enough to actually mix the dough. The thing that I noticed is that before I could feel some kind of resistance if I tried to spin the planetary attachment while attaching the dough hook or K-beater. Now I can turn it with no effort. Any suggestions on what this could be and how I could fix it would be much appreciated. Thank you!

Sounds like the motor armature is burn. Dissemble the unit, remove the motor. Loosen the bolts running from end to end of the motor and with emery cloth, clean the small metal plates on the ehd of the armature. They should be bright copper colour. I the armature is burnt, they will be dull brown. The other thing is to replace the brushes in the motor.

Where can I find a manual for the A701 food mixer


Hi,
They do not have a manual for the Kenwood Chef A701. However, there is a manual for a Kenwood Chef A701 available for download see www.kenwoodservice.co.uk/instructions/UK/instructions-A701.pdf. There is also some discussion on Martin Lewis' Money Saving Expert Forum see forums.moneysavingexpert.com, about instructions for the Kenwood Chef. I hope this is of some help to you.
Thank You.

Hi my mixer suddenly wont spin and im not so sure how to fix it.


if its like mine the belt or pulley wear out mine took 8 years for it wear out. i couldnt find the parts so i took of the base(make sure its unplugged) remove the belt(hold one side of belt over the large cog and turn the cog, the belt should fall off) get a large rubber band (the width of the pulley)and twist the band over the pulley a number of times until it fits tightly over the pulley, replace belt and base and it should work.
this will work if the belt or pulley teeth are worn
my wife still cant beleive it worked
