My Mix3 4004 Krups hand mixer stopped working a long time ago. I replaced the capacitors...but now I don't know where to start checking
Krups produce a premium product and it would be surprising if they didn't also have a repair or exchange service. Sometimes such a service is a reasonable cost and it is advisable to at least make the enquiry before proceeding further with your home repair.
Early food mixers used a number of series resistors for speed control and the circuit was fairly straightforward to check with a multimeter and any capacitors found are likely to be radio interference suppressors.
Later mixers use an electronic speed control and the best mixers use feedback to maintain the speed and torque when mixing or beating viscous material that would otherwise slow the speed significantly.
Checking/troubleshooting the electronics are beyond the scope of home repair, however, the circuit can be checked to the speed control fairly simply and then from the speed control to the motor and the motor itself. If everything else checks out then it would be reasonable to assume the electronic speed control has failed.
Early electronic speed control used either a thyristor as the control device or a diac/triac pair mounted on a small circuit board. Later types probably use a speed control module similar in principle to those found in power drills...

I was given a Krups
truth is that the user manual for your Krups stand-portable mixer is not
available anywhere online. The manufacturers of this unit did not make
it available. I went further searching and couldn't find any.
would suggest you contact the manufacturer of this unit via phone or
e-mail and request for the user manual from them. They might give it
to you or direct you to a dealer where you can get the user manual.
This is the best you can do to get the user manual you are requesting for.
Go to krups' website (http://www.krups.com/Home.htm), check "Contact Us" and you would see their e-mail and phone number.
Or just go straight to; http://www.krups.com/Tools/Contact/Contact.htm
Select your country......
I hope you understand the above.
