Question about Kenwood Food Mixers

Open Question

My wife has bought an old Kenwood a700d second-hand, but we’ve found that smoke comes out the vents when the mixer is running at low speed (but not when running at high speed). The smoke doesn't appear to smell like and electrical smell. I thought it maybe capacitors in the speed controller? I dunno. Now being a bit of a DIY fixit man, I thought I might be able to take a look at servicing it, if I could get hold of a service manual to guide me along a bit. Well I’ve scoured the net and have not been able to find anything. Do you know where I can get one, by any chance? (I know BGR1 had offered to send some info to others with the A700 mixers, but I couldn't find any way to contact him directly via a PM or something. Anyways, if you're listening BGR1, my e-dress is pete at webflex dot co dot nz. :) ) Thanks for any help :)

Service advise for kenwood a700d

The planetary gear housing is filled with grease. Seeing oil come out would indicate that grease has started to or has completely broken down. Take the planetary apart (One nut and a clip), clean out the old grease and liberally repack with a food grade grease something like PTFE Super Lube .

Kitchen aid khm3wh beaters will not stay in mixer

I fixed mine (my wife's). Kitchenaid 3-Speed Hand Mixer KHM3WH. Here's how I did it.
This is a pretty old mixer. My wife bought it at a thrift store for $1. She brought it home, we found the beaters and whisk beaters on eBay. Paid $34.00 for both sets of beaters, but when we received them we found they would not stay in the mixer. Oh we also bought the alternative/replacement beaters from Sears, parts online. I don't think those will work with my fix. However with some $0.92 rubber washers from Lowe's and a heavy duty paperclip I fixed the mixer, and it works flawlessly. Maybe some stainless steel wire would be a better, more permanent fix.

I recently bought a used 901 Kenwood mixer from a second-hand dealer. The attachments seem to have a coating which may be deteriorating, as a black, greasy smear appears when I wash them. Any ideas ??

Yes its when the attachments have been through a dishwasher it damages the surface. you can still buy new attachments you have to change the shaft from the old attachment to the new one
