Kenwood chef A701A capacitor and other components.? I thought it would be a good idea to replace the capacitor on my Kenwood Chef A701A because of its age and before it blows!! Can you tell me if the 0.1microfarad capacitor on the A701A motor control board can be replaced by a maplin capacitor metallised paper 0.1mF N69CN (275V) or is it an electrolytic capacitor -I cannot see any polarity marked. If not any other known source?? I have used the above capacitor parrallelled with a 0.047mF one to successfully repair my daughters A901 mixer board 0.15mF capacitor which had burnt out. Also there are three components hidden beneath shrink plastic tubing on my A701A board, do you know what these are and if it is worth just replacing them. Two are white plastic shrunk in series with the Live and neutral supply wires and one is black and connected between the 0.1mF capacitor terminal and a terminal on the motor board. I think the A701A was made in the 1950/60s do you know? Thanks.
