Question about Kenwood KM200 Chef Food Processor
Oil is slowly leaking into my bowl. Apparently this is the grease that has melted over the years. We live in South Africa. I can't find any electrical appliance company willing to open the machine.
Once the liquid reaches the inside of the device, it's pretty much unserviceable. The thing is that the soup, being liquid, contains a lot of water which corrodes the internal circuits. Also, it creates short circuits on the main board. Even if you do manage to change a few parts and make it work again, it is just a matter of time until something else fails. I recommend buying a new one.

As another South African citizen I can sympathize with you when it comes to finding service & after care support.
Kenwood S.A.'s website tells you to take it back to the store where you purchased it. Great help that is?
They do however give a JHB number where you can contact them:
Let me know if you have no joy from this number.

The parts that may require service after a very long tim would be the gear box which would require a clean out and refill with grease and the output shafts which can be wiped clean and given a touch if grease as well. The motor bearings could do with the same treatment and all this calls for a strip down of the mixer. However, if there is no perceptable play in the drives and no strange noises, the unit is possibly best left alone with just the minimum lubrication being applied as you intimate.
