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 to remove external covers so i can replace a gearbox on kenwood chef km001 mixer! any ideas?


Dont know what the problem is, you didnt say.
Merely take the screws out. Usually on the bottom
of the unit. Heres your big hint, possibly. Some screws
are hidden under the rubber feet.

Kenwood KM336 no power to beater or slow speed outlet


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

We got a Kenwood Chef mod a901 as a gift but no service manual. This mixer has seen a lot of usage during its lifetime and I don't know whether it has been serviced regularly. Does it need regular...


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.

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.

Is there actually any one person in the entire world who knows how to take a Kenwood FP510 processor apart to change the drive belt? There are lots of queries on the internet but no solutions. Somebody...


I have solved it at last! Remove the 5 screws on the bottom. There are 2 more screws (which may be blackened with oil) located through the grille directly below the motor. They're stumpy little things with gripping washers. I had to bend the plastic grille thingys to get screwdriver in. Once released, these will enable the whole base to be removed. Then there are 3 screws to get the plate off to put the new belt on. Put the belt around the big cog. Replace the 3 screws of the plate. The motor drive is loose now so you can angle the drive cog to attach the belt to this. Using gravity by turning the processor on it's edge you should with some fiddling be able to put the stumpy screws back in - took me a couple of goes. Replace the 5 screws and robert is a very close relative.

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

Kenwood a710a mixer suddenly lacks power


sounds like the motor armature is burn. Dissemble the unit, remove the motor. Loosen the bolts running from end to end of the motor and with emery cloth, clean the small metal plates on the ehd of the armature. They should be bright copper colour. I the armature is burnt, they will be dull brown. The other thing is to replace the brushes in the motor.

The motor just humms loudly when I try to start it. If I give it a push it will start spinning, but boggs down if I put any food through it


Take the bottom plate off to expose the motor, drive belt, and pulleys (pull the power plug for this). Remove the drive belt and turn the motor shaft by hand--does it seem to turn freely? Do the same with the driven pulley--it should turn freely also. The pulleys and belt are likely cog-type and not prone to slippage. If either pulley shaft is excessively hard to turn, then investigate the reason,and replace parts if necessary. With the belt off, the motor should accelerate almost instantly. If relatively slowly, the motor may need to be replaced.

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.
