SOURCE: Ihave flooded the inside of my Kenwood Chef KM 264

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.

Hi there,

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:
011 474-0153

Let me know if you have no joy from this number.

Best wishes,
Graemevm

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.

Dont know what the problem is, you didnt say.
Merely take the screws out. Usually on the bottom

are hidden under the rubber feet.

Hi. You have a broken gear in the gearbox either the first motion gear is loose on its shaft or less likely the vertical big gear is loose on its shaft. independent spares for the gearbox are available or complete gearbox

Where can I find a manual for the A701 food mixer


Hi,
They do not have a manual for the Kenwood Chef A701. However, there is a manual for a Kenwood Chef A701 available for download see www.kenwoodservice.co.uk/instructions/UK/instructions-A701.pdf. There is also some discussion on Martin Lewis' Money Saving Expert Forum see forums.moneysavingexpert.com, about instructions for the Kenwood Chef. I hope this is of some help to you.
Thank You.

Why is smoke coming from Kenwood chef A901


sounds to me like you may have burnt up the motor probaby by mixing to heavy of a load or running it too long, or by just being older. I would replace it as fixing it would be costly

I have a kenwood chef mod 703c the motor spins and drives the belt ok butwhen i engage the power switch the mixerhead does nothing, does not turn


The problem is that the clutchdog, which is normally engaged by the peg on the liquidiser cover, is worn. Remove the top casing of the machine by removing the 3 screws and all of the outlet covers. Then unscrew the top of the gear box and prise open carefully with a screwdriver to expose the gears. The clutch dog can be unscrewed. Remove the spring that is on the outside of the gearbox and replace it on the inside of the gearbox so that it pulls the clutch dog down permanently. This then needs to be screwed back once the top of the gearbox has been screwed back together. Sounds complicated but it will be obvious when you try it. The machine will then turn the main attachment hub but will remain engaged as for later model machines. Hope this helps. John UK

Need a replacement bowl for my Kenwood Chef


I have an Excel that has the D shaped bowl but the base of it is round. Since the Excel does have a round base you can fit any existing bowl onto the Kenwood including their newer stainless steel bowl.
