Kenwood Major A717 Grease?
I use white food safe grease.
Here is an example; https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/391996333570?epid=25018211366&hash=item5b44cd5e02:g:NlUAAOSwoeVdxAPv
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.
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...
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
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.
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!
