1. Before doing anything, ensure that the mixer is not plugged in! Then, remove the cover from the high speed attachment. If you don't have this cover, then the low speed attachments will not work anyway, as the cover engages the clutch when it is latched on.

  2. Now, remove the kenwood chef logo covering the front grinder attachment by pulling the white handled lever towards the edge of the mixer and then pulling the Kenwood panel away from the mixer.

    • Next, unscrew the three screws holding the high-speed attachment port in place. Once removed, the attachment port lifts up freely.

    • Then, take the plastic cover off the other attachment port on the top of the mixer.

    • Now, lift the gearbox cover up and towards the front of the mixer - it should slide straight off

    • Marvel at the decades of ingredients stored safely inside your mixer!

    • You can remove the belt that drives the gearbox at this point - if this has worn out then only the high speed attachment will have been working. It will lift off nicely with a screwdriver.

    • The large gear then needs to be gripped, and the "dog" on top of it needs to be removed. You'll need to hold the gear in place and turn the dog, and watch the spring doesn't fly off!

    • Apologies for the cake/belt continuity errors in this set - some are taken during reassembly

    • If you just need to remove the large gear, here's the time to do it. You can lift it off with a pair of pliers underneath. Note that this is attached to a plastic gear inside the gearbox and this is the usual failure point if your low speed attachment is not working but your mixer runs.

    • Next, undo the screws holding the gearbox onto the mixer body. There is one on either side of the mixer (only one shown). If your motor is dead, you may not need to do this.

    • Next, remove the plastic cover on the bottom of the gearbox. At this point, old crumbs will be getting everywhere. This is held on by four screws, which are removed in the first picture. At this point, you also need to pull the plastic cover off the lever at the front of the mixer.

    • You now have access to the lower plastic cover - best to give this a wash along with the felt. (picture 2)

    • Behold the beauty of the Kenwood gearbox (picture 3). Best not to wash this, but remove the 6 screws to gain access.

    • One thing to do with that - open it up! The cover lifts off showing the still well lubricated gears. Normal failure point ringed - remove this and replace with a new one to fix!

    • Reassembly is the reverse of dismantling the mixer.

    We have one of these old beauties and will never part with it. My only question is, if I take the mixer apart and find I need a part or two, where do I get them from? We live near Gosford NSW. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Excellent guide.  Only omission.  The dog on top of the gear. Is it lift off  or screwed, if so is it anti clock to unscrew

    Is the dog on top of the large gear, screwed? If so, does it come out anti clock or clock?

Hi I get a slight screeching noise between speed Two and three do you think this is anything to worry about.

The mixer seems perfect at maximum speed.

Hi,

I’m not entirely sure, but it sounds like the gearbox (or another part of the drive) may need greasing? The grease can dry up over time and it would lead to that.

Thanks,

Josh

what kind of oil do you use in the gearbox

What type of grease is used in the gearbox (my earlier question was an error)

Mark Corkum - Réponse

Our Kenwood just came to a halt! I have dismantled as you suggest and it appears that the gearbox is OK but the orbital crank pinion has lost a couple of teeth.

It seems to turn ok now but will it do permanent damage if I do not get another pinion?
