KM336 Manuals/ FAQs/ Support

  • What is the difference between a Chef and a Major?

    The main difference between the two machines is the bowl size, with the Major having a 6.7L bowl and the Chef a 4.6L bowl.  Motor size will also be higher for a Major verses its comparable Chef sized machine.  For example, the KM631 Major Classic has 900w power compared with the KM336 Chef Classic which has 800w power. 

    It is worth noting that the Major is a taller and heavier machine but it can mix larger quantities at one time than the Chef.

  • How old is my Chef?

    We are proud to be able to say that the Kenwood Chef and Major have been manufactured for over 60 years.  

    The list below will help you identify how old your machine is. Your model number can be found on the underside of the machine.

  • Can I purchase a creaming beater for my Chef or Major?

    A creaming beater is deigned for cake making. It scrapes the mixture from the sides of the bowl and thoroughly incorporates all of the ingredients. Sadly it negates to need to lick the bowl afterwards!

    The Chef  version can be ordered using part number AT501, and the Major version can be ordered using part number AT502.

    Spares and accessories for Kenwood products, including many of our older products, are available from Kenwood Spares via their website at http://www.4kenwood.co.uk/. Alternatively they can be contacted by calling 0844 557 3653.

    In either case please have your model number ready when ordering, which is embossed on the underside of the power unit.

     

  • Will the food processor attachment fit my Chef?

    The AT640 or AT647 Food Processor attachment will only fit the Titanium models, as these have an additional medium speed attachment point. Models include the KM001, KM002, KM010, KM020, KM030, KMC030, KMC015, KM023, KMC023, KM013, KMC013, KMC010 and KMM020.  The Titanium range has an additional Medium speed outlet

    If your model is not one of the Titanium range, it may be worth considering the AT340 Pro Slicer/ Grater attachment, which has seven discs included, for slicing, grating and julienne effects. The AT337, AT358, AT339 blender and AT320 mill jar set will carry out chopping functions and the AT950 mincer will mince meat and vegetables. These attachments, with the exception of the AT950, fit onto the high speed power outlet.  The AT950 uses the slow speed power outlet.

  • Which ice cream attachment will fit my Chef or Major?

    The model number of the Ice Cream Attachment is on the underside of the display box. It will either be:

    AT956 – Fits the CHEF range (AT956A or AT956B)

    AT957 – Fits the MAJOR range (AT957A or AT957B)

    If you are having difficulty fitting the attachment to your machine, it may help to check the paddle. Imprinted on the paddle will be either a ‘C’ (for Chef), or ‘M’ (for Major). This is another useful way to check you have the correct attachment if the box has been disposed of. The AT957 will fit your Cooking Chef.

    We are delighted to be able to offer an outside guarantee repair service for our Chef and Major models, for customers within the UK. The price bands are as follows:

    The above price includes the Collection and re-delivery. Collections are all-day appointments, but we can arrange for the machine to be collected from another address if this is more convenient. Your machine will need to be well packaged for the journey.

    If you do not wish to go ahead with the repair after you have been given the quotation then there will be a £15.00 charge to cover postage to release your mixer for return.

    Regrettably this service is currently unavailable for A700 - A707 series models.

  • I am missing the spanner from my Chef or Major

    Unless you have purchased a Chef Sense model, the spanner is located within the packaging for the creaming beater. Please open this packaging and you will find the spanner tucked behind the display card in the top of the packet.

    The spanner can be used to adjust the height of your attachments, in order to ensure perfect results every time. Alternatively an adjustable spanner can be used.

  • The K-Beater/ dough hook is missing

    The K-Beater and Dough Hook are both tucked into the polystyrene within the product packaging.

    Please lift the polystyrene out of the box turn it over and check inside. These have been placed there to avoid damage during transportation.

  • Will the food processor attachment fit my Chef?

    The AT640 or AT647 Food Processor attachment will only fit the Titanium models, as these have an additional medium speed outlet. Models include the KM001, KM002, KM010, KM030, KM020, KMC010, KMC015, KMC030 and KMM020.  The Titanium range of machines have an additional medium speed outlet

    If your model is not one of the Titanium range, it may be worth considering the AT340 Pro Slicer/ Shredder attachment, which has seven discs included, for slicing, grating and julienne effects.
