Question about Kenwood KM400 / KM410 Chef Classic Stand Mixer

1 Answer

Noisey I just got a 2nd hand Kenwood Chef. The planetry gear where the beater goes in was very tight. Some penetrating oil sorted that out, but I would like to repack it. The mechanism is also very noisey and I see a few poctings saying about the inspection hole on top. However, what type of lube should be used for these items? I would imagine as there is a possibility of leakage from the front gear it may need to be a vegetable based grease, although perhaps there should not be any leakage. As for lubing the main gearing Besides what type - how much or would it be worth stripping it down and repacking it? I would appreciate any help.

    Thanks for the advice Mirran - if you can help once more I see the screws to take off the top of the gearbox. One thing I am not sure of is how to get to the two screws that are under the "clutch" that engages the drive. How do you remove the clutch, do you need to remove the seal on the underside?



    Thanks

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

    Hi Mark,



    I´m not sure what you mean. If it is the large pulley you mean, that one you have to take off. You have to turn it anticlockwise, it can be hard since the planet hub will move around, you have to block it.

    You are always welcome if you need any help Mark.

the head gears are not engaging properly
could be the selector knob or stripped gears
get a quote from an appliance repair shop but if the mixer has a few years on ti then it will probably turn out cheaper to get a new one

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.

Mine is a Chef Stand Mixer but really don't know model no. Where to find?


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 leaks.

To lubricate the unit, you need to spread again the grease in the gearbox, 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.

K-beater is stuck on our Kenwood Chef and we can't remove it


I couldn't remove the K-Beater as when I tried to turn it the whole mechanism turned with it. I couldn't even remove the splashguard! I was going to take it to the Kenwood factory (a few miles from home) but then I thought I'd give it one more go and this is what I did...
  1. Next to where the K-Beater attaches in the middle of the circular plate is a lug with a pointed-shape bolt on the end. Remove this with a spanner and the beater plus gear cog can be removed.
  2. Place some mole grips or wide pliers on a worktop and sit the cogged gear in to it and grip so that it won't turn.
  3. Now you should be able to remove the K-Beater!
Perhaps someone can suggest how to stop it happening again. I haven't attached anything since but will update this post if I have any other helpful tips.

New Kenwood chef km 001 - I can't get the beaters out!


Try turning the beater in the reverse direction to the direction it normally turns - clockwise looking at the beater (I think), this should make the shaft pins ride up on some cams which should release the beater.

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.
