Question about Kenwood Food Processors

2 Answers

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 servicing, or will it suffice to just grease the easily accessible moving parts? Any info will be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in anticipation.

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.

What grease/ oil would you use on the motor? I have refilled the gearbox but used 3 in 1 on the motor bearings and worried that this may be too thin?

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.

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

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.
