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.

    THANKS FOR THE TIP, HOWEVER, REPLACING THOSE TWO CHUBBY SCREWS WAS A CHALLENGE!

    You can remove the top section if you take off the blender drive cap and unscrew the blender drive cog CLOCKWISE. Then remove the 5 screws to free up the base and motor assy.

    To hold the chubby screws in place, use elastic small elastic bands around the screw then around the suction 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

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,

I broke mine too, but luckily I found an extra machine at a thrift store. The driver was missing (of course), but I cut the blades off (hacksaw, easy) and used the resulting shaft as a driver. It works well: better and tougher than the original! Though they are expensive, you can order a new set of blades and do the same thing with the blades you have now. -Paul

Remove the 5 screws underneath, then remove the 2 screws that hold the motor onto the base by inserting a thin phillips/star screwdriver through one of the gaps in the plastic grid underneath the motor.
