Kenwood chef keeps curdling eggs
Put water in Kenwood and a bowl inside the Kenwood to hold eggs. Eggs need to be done SLOWLY. Can also add a LITTLE water to aggs as they cook to slow down curdling . Basically you need to turn Kenwood into a double boiler. Lift bowl with eggs in and out of Kenwood to control temperature and whisk away now under control. Lift bowl and cool and slow down cooking and lower back in water and Kenwood to hear back up. Keep whisking and lift and lower bowl as needed. Some melted butter doesn't hurt either!

What is the burning smell
Look in the oven, the cake may be burning. If the smell is from the mixer it could be a capacitor burning out, it could be a fault on the PCB, it could be a poor connection in the wiring, it could be a faulty armature, it could be faulty field windings, it could be a bush or bearing nipping up. If it's not amongst that list try getting back with more information.

Kenwood prospero km262 stopped working
In my case, capacitor C1: 470nF (on the circuit board) proved to be the cause. It measured only half its normal value. It's part of a voltage divider used in place of a transformer. Replacing it solved the problem.
Came already across the same problem in another circuit.
