Question about Kenwood KM300 Chef Stand Mixer

1 Answer

Kenwood chef.mixmaster my mixer seems to be leaking ol I have a Kenwood made Chef Classic, marketed under the Rival brand. I purchased it in the early 90's and have used it perhaps twice. When I brought it out recently, oil was dripping from the attach point for the beater. Could this simply be from sitting idle for years, or do I need a repair?

This kind of unit are lubricated with grase paste. If the unit stays inactive for a long time, or if the motor and gears are overheating the grease paste gets melted into thin oil, and that will cause the leak.
The oil leak is usually coming from the gear box inside the appliance.
To fix the problem the unit must be taken apart, and cleaned. After this step, there is need to spread again the grease, using special foodsafe grease paste.
Disassemblying the gear box is not that easy, you will need previous experience and a gear puller to do the job properly and safely.
This appliances are also held with security screws to prevent the users from taking apart the unit, and can only be disassembled using a Security screwdriver tip.

The grease can be purchased here, check at the bottom of the page: Kenwood chef food mixer Grease.

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!
