SILLY QUESTION I have just bought a brand new kenwood chef and I have never used one of these machines before. How do I attach a balloon whisk attachment? The whisk keeps falling off even after I turn it anti clockwise. Very frustrated!

Push the whisk attachment post up into the mixer, turn counter-clockwise and it should lock into position.

    Oops, sorry, I missed your "anti-clockwise" comment. Take a look at the top of the wisk attachment post, making note of the little cross bar. When you push the attachment up into the mixer, and turn the attachment counter clockwise, you will feel a click and the attachment should be in as far as it will go, as well as locking into position. I actually looked at the inside of the holder when I first got my Kenwood (1983) to see what held the stem in place because I was turning it the wrong way.

Kenwood chef keeps curdling eggs


Put water in Kenwood and a bowl inside the Kenwood to hold eggs. Eggs need to be done SLOWLY. Can also add a LITTLE water to aggs as they cook to slow down curdling . Basically you need to turn Kenwood into a double boiler. Lift bowl with eggs in and out of Kenwood to control temperature and whisk away now under control. Lift bowl and cool and slow down cooking and lower back in water and Kenwood to hear back up. Keep whisking and lift and lower bowl as needed. Some melted butter doesn't hurt either!

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!

Hi, I'm from Malaysia.I have a Kenwood Chef model A701A.While creaming cheese the power whisk does not rotate.Could you please help to overcome this problem.thank you.


Hi from the Philippines and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

Is it just the power whisk or all attachments that do not rotate? On the A701A there is a clutch and spring fitted to the gearbox. (Spring loaded clutch) There is a pin in the cover that actuates the clutch. If the pin is broken or come out of the cover then the front of the machine will not work. (you may have to have someone fabricate a new pin!) If the clutch spring has broken you will experience the symptom you described also.

There is also a belt from the motor to the gearbox and the belt may have broken or come off.
The belt can be found on Ebay here:

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Have a 20 plus year old Kenwood chef [navyblue and white] don't know the model number. When the K beater or whisk are attached they rotate for a few seconds then fall out any ideas what to do


for both attachments to fall out the planet hub must be worn out. check that there is a spring clip in the groove of the beaters. if you have had it repaired recently it may be running backwards which woluld eject the attachments.

Mixer stops working


It sounds like the attachments aren't aligning correctly. I had the same problem with a Kitchen Aid. The unit should be replaced as soon as possible so you don't end up paying for repairs.

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...
