  • Remove all packaging and any labels.
  • If the plug or cord is damaged it must, for safety reasons, be replaced by Kenwood or an authorized Kenwood repairer in order to avoid a hazard.
  • Turn the speed control to ‘O’ OFF position and unplug before fitting or removing tools/attachments, after use and before cleaning.
  • Keep body parts, hair and jewelry and lose clothing away from moving parts and fitted attachments.
  • Never leave the Stand Mixer unattended when it is operating.
  • Never use a damaged appliance. Get it checked or repaired: see ‘Service and Customer Care’ section.
  • Never operate the Stand Mixer with the head in the raised position.
  • Never put your fingers into the hinge mechanism.

  • Never let the power unit, cord, or plug get wet.
  • Never use an unauthorized attachment or more than one attachment at once.
  • Never exceed the quantities stated in the maximum capacity chart
  • When using an attachment, read and follow the safety instructions that are supplied with it.
  • Take care when lifting this appliance as it is heavy Ensure the head is correctly latched in the down position and that the bowl, tools, outlet covers, and cord are secure before lifting.
  • Take care when removing bowl tools after extended use as they may get hot.
  • Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.

  • The short power-supply cord is used to reduce the risk resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping. Extension cords may be used if care is exercised in their use. If an extension cord is used: 1) The marked electrical rating of the extension cord should be
    at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance; and 2) The cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over unintentionally. 3) The extension cord should be an earthed-type 3-wire cord. The electrical rating of the appliance is listed on the bottom of the unit.

  • TYPE KVL85 = 19mm

Then follow the instructions below:

  1. Unplug the appliance.
  2. Raise the mixer head and insert the whisk or beater.
  3. Lower the mixer head. If the clearance needs to be adjusted, raise the mixer head and remove the tool. Ideally the whisk and K-beater should be almost touching the bottom of the bowl.
  4. Using a suitable spanner loosen the nut sufficiently to allow adjustment of the shaft. To lower the tool closer to the bottom of the bowl, turn the shaft anti-clockwise. To raise the tool away from the bottom of the bowl turn the shaft clockwise.
  5. Re-tighten the nut.
  6. Fit the tool to the mixer and lower the mixer head. (Check its position see points above).
  7. Repeat the above steps as necessary until the tool is set correctly. Once this is achieved tighten the nut securely.

Note: Spanner shown is for illustration purposes only.
