    Hi, i do not want to buy from kenwood, thats why i asked on here, i need to know all its specifics

    Thanks

    Hi, i do not want to purchase from a website, also i want to know the chokes specific values, and also i wanted a wiring diagram.

    I want a choke for a kenwood mixer A701A, i dont want to buy from a website, i need to know all its values. I know its 3 amp, but what elase? Im also after a wiring diagram

  • David Hallas Apr 06, 2011

    Ok, lets get this straight, I know where the choke is on the speed controller unit, its the black 3 amp, which is behinf the 15w 450 ohm resistor... what im asking is what are the full specifics of the choke.... its values. I do not need a link to kenwood or buy spares etc, i know these sites. Also im after a wiring diagram.

  • David Hallas Apr 06, 2011

    Helpmech, slow down, you are answering something i'm not asking. i know all about how to adjust the speed, i know all about the 150n cap and the 47n cap. I know the triac's are only on the 901's

    I am asking what exactly is the choke? Is it a resistor, if so what is it's values?

    what are the values of the large black choke?

    I dont want to buy a repair kit,

    i only want to know about the choke that run by the 450ohm 15w ddr

  • David Hallas Apr 06, 2011

    kenwood A701 choke. Its 3 amp, but what are its other values. Basically if i was to walk in to maplins what would i be asking for?

    Thanks

  • David Hallas Apr 07, 2011

    good reading but still doesnt help me. Ive managed to look at a wiring diagram, and kenwood list it as a T/V choke 3 amp, but I need to know the uH...... still stuck.

I just quote specs about A701A...

The capacitor is rated at 1000V a modern cap will be OK .01uf and the resitor is 450ohm 15w there is a resistor across the resistor which is 56Ohm 2W there are 2 small ferite chokes on the mains input.
Have a look on ebay full kit with all the components for 17.00 do a search for Kkenwood motor repair
.

Ask additional details in the Kenmore Store.

  • raj somaiya Apr 06, 2011

    Yes you are correct.Its black and its 3amp.----- The capacitor and resistor value is as follows:---
    You need to replace the capacitor with a 0.1 mF 275VAC mains capacitor and the the load resistor with a 450 ohm 15W or 20W wirewound resistor. --------------
    On 701 & 701a models, then there is no triac, it's done with a mechanical govenor with bob weights on the bottom of the motor, this makes and breaks the current to the motor via a contact. This contact is on the circuit board that the dial moves up or down to adjust the speed. Look closely and you should see two long thin screws with springs that hold this board in position. Adjustment of these sorts out the speed. See which way the dial moves the board when you turn it to max, adjust the screws the opposite way. If you dont need to take it apart as these screws are accessable from underneath also.The speed control is adjusted via two screws with springs. Turn the machine upside down, open the spring base, take out four screws, take out two screws holding slider in place, slide plastic cover out of the way. Two screws with springs should be on side opposide control knob.-----------
    This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

  • raj somaiya Apr 06, 2011

    Yes its a resistor.The resistor value is 56 ohm.Thanks.Keep updated.Helpmech.

How many amps a fuse in breville mixer


Not knowing the model of the mixer you are talking about, or where you are in the world and the voltage you are running at, I can't tell you. But I can tell you how to figure it out. Simply do this:

You obviously know what your main power supply voltage is, either 240 volt or 110 volt
You can look at the mixer and there will be a data sticker with the wattage of the motor on it

Watts divided by volts = Amps

Therefore, if you have a 500 watt mixer on a 240 volt system 500/240 = 2.083 so use a 3 amp fuse
a 750 watt motor on 240 volts 750/240 = 3.12 so use a 5 amp fuse
a 500 watt motor on a 110 volt supply 500/110 = 4.5 so use a 5 amp fuse

etc etc etc.....

Hope this helps

My country use the 220 volts system do have to use a step down transformer of plug it in direct.it has been a year i have not used the appliance having no information on wattage


If your microwave is wired for 220 volts AC and your country standard house current is 220, and the plug is of the proper configuration, plug it in.

Standard microwave size is around 1100 watts at 110 volts Normally, two times the voltage is 1/2 the wattage. Ohms law, Voltares Law and Watts Law apply.

If your microwave is 1100 watts at 110 volts --- yes you will need a step- down transformer of some type.

Hi, I have v old Kenwood 701 and also a a701a. Both are dripping grease and also have that "electrical" smell. Both could do with a clean internally and replace grease and any washers...


The grease from the bearings is not grease. It is old, dry oil. The motor bearings are oilite bearings made of phosphor Bronze and soak up the oil like blotting paper. They will need fresh oil. The cogs and screw use grease but most of the bearings are oilite and sewing machine grade oil will renovate them.
All of the above information is from when I renovated my mums Kenwood Mixer back in 1965.
Hope that helps.

What will the size wire will i need to wire up to consumer unit


It depends on if you are running a 220 or 110 volt supply. Assuming that your supply is 110 volt and your microwave draws about 2000 watts, that would mean that you need a wire with a cross section of about 2.5 sq, mm to allow a safety margin. If your mains are 220 volts you can use 2 sq mm or a little less - say 1.5 sq mm to be on the safe side. (On 220 volts a microwave draws aprox. 2 amps for every 200 wats output and 1 sq mm wire can carry 10 amps - as a rule of thumb. At 110 volts these figures are roughly double).

Everything works except the microwave function


yes there are fuses inside it,,,but,,,there is also a lot of volts still in it too, "ie, 1000's" and they bite too,
bit like a police stun gun will,,but they may not just stun you,,they could very well kill you,, so be warned!
also the fuses are not the normal sizes you would have at home, and some of them are "slow blow" type and some are "fast blow" type,,, and one is at least 1 to 4 1000 volts type?
and my gess is a fuse has poped becouse the magnatron has given up the ghost and poped its clogs!!! like its dead! and a new magnatron would be dearer than a new microwave to have fitted,,
so,,,get a new unit,,dont tinker with it and stay alive!

How can i convert our 220 volts wall outlet to 110 volts for a microwave oven.


Find the breaker for it (a double for 220) and substitue a single breaker (for 110). This will leave one wire unused from the breaker box to the outlet. You'll have to change the outlet of course to accommodate a normal 110 plug. You can also skip the breaker part and just change the outlet and cap off 1 of the hot wires. Just make sure to kill the power and be safe!

How many micro wave ovens will a 20 amp circuit support?


Please stick with me to the end ... some examples are for example only. There is no 1000 watt circuit per'ci.

This will not be possible overload, this is an accident waiting to jump on you, my friend

Install dedicated circuits for these ovens, my friend. It will cost you a little but will be better than having dissatisfied guests or talking to the zoning board or boarding house authority or (gasp) the fire inspector after the fire.

If you don't do this, when the breakers start flipping off, tenants will run extension cords to outlets that have power. A whole different and worse, problem!

Rule of thumb, lighting circuits should be designed to operate at 80%, for example, if you have 800 watts of lights on a 1000 watt circuit, you are at the max.

So, there is a possibility that your circuit for lights is already near max. Adding ovens is trouble. Don't forget the iPOds and cell phone chargers as well as lap top chargers, walkman chargers (older students), little TV's, DVD players, clock radio's, electric shavers, curling irons, steamers, popcorn makers, lava lamps and occasional electric heaters that will be snuck into the room.

What is a 1000 watt circuit ... good question. Ohms law comes into play here.

Volts X Amps = Watts
120 volts X 8.333 amps = 500 watts (a smoothie blender) 300 watts (slow cooker) 200 watts (hand mixer) = 1000 watts.


A 15 amp circuit will protect #14 wire and can carry about 1800 watts (a toaster (1500 watts), for example).

A 20 amp circuit will protect #12 wire and can carry about 2400 watts (i am using a big paint brush here. these numbers are pretty close but not exact and I am not a licensed electrician.)

When I wire, I aim lots lower, preferring to OVER build than to under build.

10 amp circuits are rare in modern homes. In general practice, if the need was to be protected at 10 amps, the wire used in the circuit would be #14 and it would be protected by the breaker at 10 amps. In this case, it is the device plugged into this 10 amp circuit that needs protection rather than the #14 wire (which would be technically oversized)

Another consideration for you is where is the water? If you have an outlet that is 5 feet from a water source (bath - kitchen - etc) it must be protected by a GFIC

A 30 amp circut will protect #10 wire --- but this is not a normal household circuit.

Maybe the best option is for you to have your electrician install a sub panel in the vicinity of use and run several 20 amp circuits from that location to the various rooms.

The answer to your question "How many (1150 watt)micro wave ovens will a 20 (amp circuit handle)" is TWO with nothing else on the line. The National Code requires dedicated circuits for micro wave ovens, BTW. A commercial application may have a different (more stringent) standard in your town.

The bulb is not working in my Panasonic NN-A554W inverter slimline combi oven and I do not know the size/number to obtain a replacement. I know you are supposed to get in an engineer but that is a bit...


It's a T170 type bulb (should be very common at a grocery store or hardware store) rated at 240 volt, either 20 or 25 watt is okay, and if you order it as a spare online, it may come with the 90-degree bracket.

You can see a good photo and detailed specifications here.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
