Guide :Food Mixers : KM400 / KM410 Chef Classic Stand Mixer
Noisey I just got a 2nd hand Kenwood Chef. The planetry gear where the beater goes in was very tight. Some penetrating oil sorted that out, but I would like to repack it. The mechanism is also very noisey and I see a few poctings saying about the inspection hole on top. However, what type of lube should be used for these items? I would imagine as there is a possibility of leakage from the front gear it may need to be a vegetable based grease, although perhaps there should not be any leakage. As for lubing the main gearing Besides what type - how much or would it be worth stripping it down and repacking it? I would appreciate any help.
