Michelle has an old Kenwood Chefette A355 hand held electric mixer that she got from her parents many years ago.
On the weekend a puff of smoke burst out if it.
I opened it up and found a burst paper capacitor (1µF) on the mains input (Mains Interference Suppression Capacitor).
I replaced it with a new capacitor and it's working fine again.
Another happy appliance repair.
