Model A701. What type of grease/oil is used in the gearbox and how much?

A white or clear lithium grease. Do not cake it on but enough to get into all of the cogs/worm gears.

Kenwood KM300. How to fit new mains cable ?

Having done it the hard way (!) it is dead easy. All you need is a small screwdriver or similar, approx 2mm by 1mm in cross section. Looking from outside the mixer, where the power lead enters the main body, between the rectangular lead casing and the socket it enters, there is a small rectangular cutout (top right). Push your screwdriver in around 15mm, and then withdraw the lead housing with it - the screwdriver pushes the latch aside, hence you need to remove both as one! With luck, and a wiggle or two, that should be it.

Kenwood chef repairs team my mixer motor works but beaters won't rotate

We are FIXYA dot com, we aren't Kenwood Chef, we aren't who you think we are. There can be two reasons for a Kenwood Chef to run but not turn the beaters. The most likely one is that the Drive belt has broken. Or You have strained the beaters and you have sheared the shear pin in the drive shaft. It is there to save you damaging the motor and gearbox. Take the top cover off ..

K-beater is stuck on our Kenwood Chef and we can't remove it

I couldn't remove the K-Beater as when I tried to turn it the whole mechanism turned with it. I couldn't even remove the splashguard! I was going to take it to the Kenwood factory (a few miles from home) but then I thought I'd give it one more go and this is what I did...
  1. Next to where the K-Beater attaches in the middle of the circular plate is a lug with a pointed-shape bolt on the end. Remove this with a spanner and the beater plus gear cog can be removed.
  2. Place some mole grips or wide pliers on a worktop and sit the cogged gear in to it and grip so that it won't turn.
  3. Now you should be able to remove the K-Beater!
Perhaps someone can suggest how to stop it happening again. I haven't attached anything since but will update this post if I have any other helpful tips.

I have a Kenwood KA 893. I have no control over the volume. The dial is spotty. Sometimes I can turn the volume up but it usually does what it wants. I do not have the remote.

Sounds to be dirty. There is a thing called tuner cleaner you can use to clean it. You will need to remove the control knob and try spraying into the control,but you may have to get inside to clean it up good by breaking down the unit.

The bowl of my kenwood food mixer will no release from stand . it turns easily enough buy will not release

Kitchen Aid suggests putting a dime in the bowl and turning the mixer on low. If the beater attachment pushes the dime around the bowl, the attachment is too low. If dime doesn't move, the attachment height is too high. When the attachment height is just right, the dime will only move a little.

Kenwood prospero wont start

Hi on my new Kenwood Prospero+ model khc29h0wh (but applies to all) I had same problem: dough mixer and high speed mixer working, but "medium speed" food processor and Juicer not working. After lots of time I realised... the lid of the Juicer/Processor actually locks in three different positions, but only one of these (with the handle corresponding to a mark) actually locks lowering a white plastic security prong that activates the switch. It is the position in which the lid and container prongs coincide. img_20200410_151700-undefined-undefined-0.jpg capture-undefined-undefined-2_0.png

I have a kenwood KMx 50 mixer & it has a speed

KMX50 would start and accelerate to high speed, then slow down some with fairly erratic speed. I tried changing the triac on the main speed control board, then also the whole board (£45). It made no difference. The only other component I realised it might be was the speed control board which is on the rear end of the motor under the main cover (I found this component on a site selling Kenwood parts, and was where I got the main board from, which is how I know it's speed control). When I inspected it I found two of the terminals broken. You had to look very closely to see they were broken. It's a poor design as the three legs of the terminals are quite long, and very thin, so on high speed when kneading there is much vibration, which is why I suspect the terminals broke. I cut them back just enough to resolder. The component isn't quite fully inside the sensor wheel on the motor shaft, but it still picks up sufficient signal to control the speed and now works fine. Haven't tried it under load yet, but no reason to think it won't work correctly. So check this before ordering a £45 board!
