Main: Fixed An Old Kenwood Electic Beater

Michelle has an old Kenwood Chefette A355 hand held electric mixer that she got from her parents many years ago.

KENWOOD Model A355 hand held mixer

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.
